SUN IN ARIES
March 21 - April 9
Your Astrological Sign, Zodiac Sign, Star Sign, and Sun Sign are all names for the same thing. They represent the constellation in which the Sun appears to travel at the time of your birth.
Knowing your Sun Sign is akin to having an owner's manual. There are characteristics that are hard-wired into your sign that shape the way you relate to the world. When you understand your true nature, you can fully express your purpose.
Mars governs the spectrum of all things masculine - from sex to war. Its energy is assertive and aggressive. Mars energizes the other planets bringing confidence, courage, and competition. One thing is certain; this red planet is a bit of a hot-head. Mars promotes passion and drive.
Cardinal signs initiate seasons. They are pioneering and enterprising. Their role is to initiate new paradigms and ideas.
Fire signs have a spark and sparkle. They are bursting with enthusiasm. People are inherently drawn to their light. They ignite passion and inspiration. Fire is fierce and free-wielding. Innately, fire is hard to contain. Therefore, fire signs tend to need freedom and independence. You can always find a fire sign on the move.
ARIES EXPRESSION: INITIATION AND COURAGE
Aries is the first sign in the zodiac. The Zodiac wheel begins on the first day of spring (in the Northern Hemisphere). This is the role of Aries - to initiate change through the power of self-belief and confidence.
Just as a sprout pushes through the soil beneath the earth, Aries has the courage and determination to blaze ahead to new frontiers. In astrology, Aries rules the head. Like its symbol the ram, Aries can impulsively move headfirst without thinking things through.
They can be so strong-willed and butt heads with other people. In its highest expression, Aries inspires courage to pursue one's passions, maintaining a robust sense of self, while forging new paths for others.
