Happy Spring! Spring is a favourite season of mine. For whatever reason, I trudge through February and March. Both are always difficult months for me. My pain flares up, I struggle with taking care of myself, I feel thoroughly un-magickal. Spring Equinox and the beginning of Aries season turn that around.
I am an Aries myself, and such an Aries! Do you ever read up about your sign, and then you get salty about your sign because of how scarily accurate it is? That’s me. My Sun is in Aries, My Moon is in Leo, and my Rising sign is Cancer. All are accurate in their own way, but I am definitely an Aries and feel my Aries-ness the strongest. When it’s Aries season, or the Moon is in Aries, I feel more powerful and prepared for what is to come. It’s the fiery boost that I truly need.
The zodiac sign Aries is a fire sign, represented by the Ram. Aries is the first sign in the astrological year, and that first-in-line placement can give the Aries strong leadership skills, and a ‘me first’ attitude. The Ram is stubborn, and determined. Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, which can be associated primarily with war, but this energy also offers a sense of pride, determination, assertiveness, power, control.

How to Embrace + Channel the Aries Vibe: choose bright, warm colours, like reds and yellows. Let your passions flow. Now is a good time to start projects, focus on things that excite and inspired you. Spend time alone to get back in touch with yourself, and allow some much needed space. Enjoy sports, physical activities, and adventures.
Avoid: playing into negative senses of competitiveness and control. Do your best and play to your strengths, and help those around you, but don’t get hung up on doing the best and being the best!
