Treat everyone the same until you find out they’re an idiot.
~ Lucy Lawless, triple Aries
Today, the Sun left the sign of Pisces and moved into Aries, marking the Equinox (Vernal above the equator and Autumnal below).
As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries is ruled by Mars and is the first one to get things started, initiating projects and leading others. A cardinal (creative and inventive) sign, Aries the Ram governs leadership and initiative. The Ram is adventurous, ambitious, impulsive, enthusiastic and full of energy.
People born when the Sun is in Aries are pioneers both in thought and action, and are very open to new ideas. Aries loves freedom and absolutely hates feeling controlled.
Aries people often love to walk on the wild side, and even the most mild-mannered ones are likely to have at least one area of their lives where they enjoy picking fights, playing devil’s advocate, or breaking the rules.
They welcome challenges and if they don’t have enough, they will create some! Aries people will not be diverted from their purpose except by their own impatience, which can surface if they don’t get quick results.
Aries for Everyone
In 1993, this day was declared to be International Astrology Day by the Association for Astrological Networking (AFAN), as it coincides with the beginning of the Astrological Year, and the first day of Spring.
Why not celebrate by making an appointment with your favorite astrologer and see what your chart looks like for the new year?
As to how we are all affected when the Sun is in Aries, astrologer Rebecca Brents notes that everyone may be unusually “candid, blunt, emphatic and concerned with winning…They are interested in self-assertion and pursuing goals. It’s time to make an impression, stir up some action, and ‘take on the world.'”
But she also warns that during this time, when we are stressed, we may have a tendency to turn “belligerent, argumentative, touchy, and impatient.” Beware of impulses to become pushy, uncooperative, cranky, and downright rude.
In the time of Aries, we are all urged to light the fires of action, passion and engage vibrantly with a sense of renewal and possibilities.
We are surrounded by the energy of the warrior, the pioneer, the entrepreneur and the trailblazer. Got a dream? Well, get going! Get energized! Be creative, daring, and a little wild!
Whatever your Sun sign may be, Aries dares you to embrace the brilliance of your own life!
