The sun is now a week into the sign of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. Aries signifies the start of new cycles and new beginnings. It represents future possibilities, new creative energy, adventure, and the unexplored. The symbol of Aries is the ram, sheep, or goat. Under the influence of this sign, one may be impulsive and selfish, bubbling and busting with potential, and bossy and autocratic. However, if one’s heart and soul remain strong, the influence of Aries can make one highly successful, courageous, and a passionate leader.
Aries is a cardinal fire sign ruled by Mars. Ascendant in Aries indicates one who likes to be the first and the best in whatever they do, and is very active, ambitious, impulsive, and/or arrogant. The Martian quality can give one a “red” appearance: hair, eyes, skin, or even hot-blooded. Sun in Aries indicates one has a deeper passion that drives one’s actions, often towards manifesting the soul in this realm of matter, and searching for an ideal. Moon in Aries indicates one may have fiery or very passionate emotions, and be hot-headed or controlling. Again, the placement of the ruling planet Mars in one’s natal chart and the aspects from the other planets, etc. will indicate the strength and manner in which these indications will play in each individual’s life.
