Astrology for Aries

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and in western astrology is the first season of spring starting with the Spring Equinox (North Hemisphere). 

In Aotearoa, Aries season marks our Autumn season (traditionally governed by Libra) so Aries (I am) you are just as much Libra (the We), as you are Aries.   But let's start with the traditional archetypes and as you grow in knowledge our Southern cosmology will start to make sense.  

Aries, you more than others, instinctively know you are a creator on the leading edge of consciousness with the free will to choose what feels good to you (the "I am") - this is your birthright.

What Makes Aries Special 

Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign ruled by the Sun.   Cardinal fire means to initiate action, heat, friction or movement.  Aries is pure instinct.  It is the guts, bravery or impulse to take the first steps. Liken Aries to the first shoots of spring that burst through the wintery pastures, provide life.  Metaphorically this means to provide vision, initiate new cycles, to take the first steps of action.   Aries rules independent thought and the impulses of creation.  

The affirmation for the Aries and our Astrojewel Collectoin is “I AM” which refers to the power of creation that is you, behind the stories, ideas, beliefs and impressions you have inherited or accepted about yourself.  You are not these stories but a Universal soul connected to Source.  Part of the whole that contributes to the expansion of the whole, whether you know this now or not. 

Consciously, expressing the "I AM" in your life, will fulfil your destiny, which is to become aware of yourself as the awareness of being.  Yes, paradoxical, but that is the Universe - the 99.999999% non physical pure consciousness creative field, from which everything physical comes. 

Being a cardinal fire sign ruled by the planet Mars, gives grit and determination.  Mars is the warrior planet that governs desires, will, your persona and ego, drive, procreation, action, conflict and war.  Mars rules personal power and shows us the contrasts, the conflicts and the weaknesses that we can choose to up-level and channel our thinking towards staying firm with our own special purpose and vision. 

From a manifesting perspective, Aries aligns with the Universal law of free will. The first law of the Universe prescribes that you are free to choose.  Freedom exists in the your choose to set an intention, to be a conscious creator of your one precious physical life, to embrace how you are as perfect with no need for correction (except through our own choices), that you are the one Authority of your thoughts and your feelings, the Captain of your Soul, the God force within.

You are part of the great field of creation which is infinitely bigger than you (12th house governed by Pisces) but you are the first Spark, in the void, that can grow into the Big Bang.  Expansion is the fabric of life and the Universe so Aries is the starting point, that starts with total freedom.  Embrace your will, consciously choose your thoughts and feelings and let the Sun align with Mars to fuel your life with your uniquely you - vision. 

The Aries energy is much like the first days of spring season.  The symbol is the Ram. Rams are birthed in the spring.  The tenacity of new vision is represented in the shearing of the Ram.  Even though the ram's pelt is repeatedly clipped, trimmed and shorn, the Ram grows another and continues to breed another generation. 

This tenacity is the birthing of desire.  You will never get to the end of your desires.  There is never a point when you stop creating, or the Universe ends.  The process is meant to be messy.  Your pelt gets dirty so let it be trimmed and rise again with a new set of desires. 

The evolution of Aries is when you accept that your expansion of desires requires no war, peace reigns when you fuel desires with alignment to your independent vision.  It is the process that is important and that will never end! 



Sun in Aries 

If your Sun is in Aries your birthday will fall between 19 March (UTC) and 20 April.  Sun = Life force energy or purpose.  With a Sun your Aries, your life purpose is to take inspired independent action and to embody the Universal Law of Free Will.

To fuel your desires with clarity of intention.  To embrace the Universal Law of Free Will (to think and feel aligned with your unique desires which never get done, never end and will continue to infinity) in every moment.  You are free.  Freedom is in your breath.  Freedom is in your cosncious appreciation of who you really are!  The awareness of the "I am".

Affirm this for yourself often especially when you feel lost or confused. Centre in the power to create whatever aligned action makes you feel happy little Ram.  Sometimes you need to slow down and be alone before you act on the impulse of will or fear (ego).

Moon in Aries 

If you Moon is in Aries, only you alone can meet your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual needs.  Take and embrace every opportunity to spend time alone - each day.  Get clear on your desires in each moment, and in each day.  Set intentions for every moment that align with your desires.  Take charge of the quality of feeling in each day.   Ask yourself, how do I feel about this.... frequently.  How can I feel better here?? What action can I take to get alignment?  Embrace the Universal law of free will.  Be your own resource and let your own independence fuel and fire your heart.  Don't compromise on meeting your own needs.  Self-care is not selfishness. 

Ascendant in Aries 

If your Ascendant is in Aries, your life experience can help you to evolve as a visionary.  Significant visions may come in dreams and meditation.  Spend time in contemplation, reflection and meditation to calm the need to act impulsively or irrationally.   There is great power in your vision so long as you feel that it is good for you, and you alone.  Contrasting life experience is meant to show you aligned you are with the choice to be a visionary!   The sign, position of Mars and how it is aspected (other planets influencing it) will present pathways for your season.  Remember in the South, that Venus (and sign, position, and aspects) is also going to add flavour to your life's direction.   To make this easy, think of yourself as the beautiful maiden warrier, the wāhine maiden queen, who is always gracious, in war and in peace! 

Flavours of your Temple Garden 

Remember to find the House where your Sun, Moon are.  This is explained in our blog of X.  It is important to find the House of Aries as this will give you the flavour or characteristics of your Aries placements.   The sign and house your Sun, Moon and/or Ascendant's Ruler Mars is very important.  Especially in the case of your Ascendant.  Where your Mars is in relation to your Ascendant will help you realise your life purpose (Sun).   And finally, the degrees of your Sun, Moon, and Ascendant will also reveal the width of your pathway.   Head to this article to find out more about how the degrees work in Astrology. 

Blessings, challenges and connections 

Your chart will show you what other energies (planets and stars) are talking to you and those planets close to your four key codes (Sun, Moon and Ascendant). 

Firstly find your key codes in Aries (sun, moon, ascendant) and then consider the relationships with other energies:

  • Red lines are squares - planets three signs away, 90" which is analogous to the flavour of the first weather event, that occurs in the next seasonal cycle. Squares metaphorically give you challenges to expand your self-awareness.  Oppositions - planets six signs away, 180" or the opposite season (i.e. summer to winter). These are contrasts, opposites and polarities that show up as your relationships with others and with life experience, that you get to explore and assimilate to grow in self awareness. 
  • Black lines are planets close to your Sun, Moon, and Ascendant.  These are energies in the sign away, think mergers (energies that blend).  For example, the Sun merged with Venus (representing beauty, love and the forming of loving connections) means your life purpose may be fulfilled when you allow your natural charm, surround yourself with beautiful objects and loving relationships. 
  • Green lines are sextiles: planets up to two signs away, or within 60". These represent small gifts or blessings that make life, your emotions,  easy
  • Blue lines are trines (planets) that are four signs apart and of the same element (for example trines to Aries are Leo, and Sagittarius

Starseed origins

Fixed stars close to your Sun, Moon, Ascendant are the areas of the Galaxy that provide the origins for your consciousness and are 'home' planets.   Fixed stars only move 1 degree per 72 years so they are very slow moving and thus are more like portals of energy that you can step into, and do through the Soul's incarnation and crossing over (home planets). 

You can ask for direct help from these influences through meditation, and by standing under the night sky.   This can assist you to make sense of your Universal self and calling as a Soul.   Aries stars can be found here.  Remember you need exact degrees as the orb of influence of each star is around 1-3 degrees.
