Aries is guided by the planet Mars
ARIES is a fire sign and so much fun!
Adventurous (especially when with others), sexual, naïve or easy going, cares for friends and family, has spontaneous genius thoughts and bursts of emotions.
Sometimes childish, always childlike with enthusiasm.
The Mundane & The Esoteric
To truly understand yourself through Astrology, it’s important to consider the behavioral traits of both the Mundane: more earthly, lower self, ego driven—and the Esoteric: spiritual, compassionate, original.
When reading the following, keep in mind that you are a lovely mix—in differing degrees–of MUNDANE and ESOTERIC.
MUNDANE Aries, known as the child of the zodiac, you’re one big temper tantrum waiting to happen.
Way too often, you blurt what’s on your mind, (showcasing your insecurity), and interrupt whoever else is talking.
You can be immature in relationships and avoid the truth or way too accommodating, jumping into any relationship before thinking.
Many times, conversation means confrontation to you and you’ll either ram your opponent or quietly get what you want when no one’s looking.
There’s a tendency to become addicted to sex, drugs, nicotine or alcohol, or constant motion to numb your fiery nature, especially when you don’t take the time to feel your feelings.
Ya’ know, in your mind it’s easier to jump off of a bridge than feel sadness or pain.
You sure know how to champion the little guy when the going gets tough. And ride atop the same horse that Joan of Arc rode.
All of this type of behavior simply comes from inexperience. You’re doing your best to get what you want, when you want it, for immediate gratification.
You may not hear the words, ‘slow down,’ but if you do, you’ll see a bigger picture, with you in it!
ESOTERIC Aries, your cause is to solve problems.
You’re inventive and quite creative in the artistic sense, too.
You’ll go to great lengths to serve and protect any and all in need.
You know how to care for all living creatures and are affectionate in short, unexpected bursts.
You have a way of making sense of nonsense.
You might act first and ask for forgiveness later. Yet won’t ask for help. Aren’t you funny?
Your thoughts work faster than any other sign, and this is why you don’t often listen—you’re too busy solving life’s problems.
You help others get beyond their fears by teaching spontaneity, problem-solving, and laughter. This reminds us all of the joy of BEING and the power of creation!
You know how to organize appropriate groups of people to initiate healthy change for the world.
You can eat all the chocolate you want and never gain an ounce or develop cavities! (How the hell do you do that?)
ARIES RISING SIGN
When Aries is on the rise, the energy of the planet MARS guides the general theme of a person’s astrological chart.
Mars represents action, spontaneity, aggression, assertion, sexuality, child-like or child-ish behavior, and quick wit.
ARIES RISING is the head-strong protector of earth.
You can have blood, head, or eye trouble or mishaps if you’re not channeling your energy with love and proper intention.
Aries Rising, so ahead of your time, that you sometimes cannot handle the pace of life (or more to point, how slow everyone else is).
Sometimes you wind up self-medicating to cope with the pressures of life… nicotine, alcohol, prescribed mood enhancers.
Prescribed meds, under a doctor’s care is not necessarily a bad thing.
It can help you organize a PLAN of action before acting, as long as you actually create that plan.
You’ll find that exploring new foods, healing modalities, herbs, the latest (and most ancient) trends, or just plain old fascinating facts will keep you from being bored.
The irony is that you’re the rising sign who creates a hectic lifestyle and then has trouble meeting your own standards for living.
You can be either very naïve or judgmental about how life ought to be lived, and at what pace, because you’re so ready to take up a cause!
This makes the idea of compromise a self-inflicted competition that’s never won. Crazy circle huh?
As a result, you might become disorganized and create half-baked ideas that fizzle out quickly.
You might hold in anger related to authority that can become a temper tantrum… and that tantrum can turn into a combative attitude which results in lots of arguments with authority figures: doctors, police, and people in charge.
Or you might act out passive aggressively to challenge authority.
Unfortunately, your rarin’-to-go vibe clashes with metal. I’ve known many Aries Rising signs to have at least one car accident in their life (or issue driving on highways) or one form of surgery or one major illness that’s a marker of a ‘wake-up’ call to their anger and impatience.
If you’re a woman, giving birth is no easy task, either. It helps to have a birthing routine of course, but to also expect the unexpected and plan for spontaneity.
In romance, you can be impatient to be in love and either look for a parent in a mate or to parent a mate. In either case, you jump head first and this might leave you feeling unfulfilled in life with only surface relationships.
When you’re able to see that you can have a healthy relationship by pacing your involvement (listening well, not parenting but rather supporting, setting healthy boundaries) and most importantly…
BY BEING PRESENT WITH YOUR NEEDS VS. STATUS QUO, you’ll see the truth in your current situation.
In forcing an issue, you might push yourself and others into partnerships that need more nurturing to grow to potential. Integrating BOUNDARIES into your daily practice is key.
You feel so much childlike admiration for those in need and love to be of service.
You’re creative and very nurturing. You make an excellent cheerleader of life and become: the soccer mom, car-pooling dad, and group organizer in business or fund-raisers for those less fortunate.
Your brightness of mind brings lots of innovation to the table in any business.
No doubt, you’re a creator and can sing, write, produce, problem-solve, dance, act, and tell it like it is with an uncomplicated wit, amusing demeanor, and childlike charm.
Even when rallying for a political position, you do so with committed enthusiasm. (And with a bull-horn, possibly!)
You look to play with anyone else who’s fair and fun.
You’re looking to make change happen or to tell a story that evokes pathos and reality all mixed into one.
It’s amazing how little sleep you need! But… PLEASE find time to rest and care for your adrenals.
Your main motivation is to get something done and then get something else done as soon as possible.
You can channel a great deal of energy through your body to help others. This might promote eye, head, blood or ear issues. So do be careful and protect your head and eyes when working out.
Herbs such as basil, hawthorn, and celery seed and ginger root can help to lower blood pressure.
The health and true test for any Aries Rising sign is to be connected to their body and to not override their own needs.
I feel my feelings and engage in simple tasks daily that encourage mind, body, spirit connection.
Notable Aries Rising Signs—Errol Flynn, Carol Burnett, George Clooney, Bette Midler, Ron Howard, Antonio Banderas, Deepak Chopra, Marcel Proust, Walt Whitman, Gil Hodges, and Gertrude Stein.
ARIES MOON SIGN
The Moon sign is the connection to the mother, to feelings, and represents your ability to allow yourself to receive, to handle finances, and to share who you are on a visceral level.
Understanding your emotional self is important and helps you to harmonize your thoughts with your feelings so that you can bridge the gap between head and heart, between reasoning and intuition.
The Moon sign is often associated with the unconscious connection you have to your mother, and the feelings of influence that limit or support emotional expression.
Aries Moon—impatient with your feelings and emotions, you’re quick to become exasperated because it’s daunting to feel everything so deeply, especially the unhappy or uncomfortable feelings.
Mostly even tempered, you may be prone to emotional outbursts or feelings that erupt suddenly when you’re impatient with feeling anything at all.
If you make a habit of not feeling a full range of feelings, you’re more apt to attract sexual partners who are emotionally absent. It’s your unconscious way of triggering yourself to feel.
Aries moon mother is perceived as being unable to nurture herself.
You translate this message as, “It’s not safe to feel. I’m not in control.”
You might also have the tendency to interrupt others. Or interrupt your own thoughts as your feelings change.
But you’re quick to let go of your anger and forgive.
Sometimes, you spend money impulsively.
You might also give up your feelings in an argument too quickly as a way to quell harsh emotions.
Once you mature and ALLOW a wider range of feelings and emotions, your confidence grows and you make wiser, financial investments.
The key for your Aries Moon is to NAME your feelings as you feel them. “I feel scared. I feel angry. I feel impatient!”
As you practice naming your feelings and you’ll alter your frequency.
Sooner than later, you’ll become efficient at feeling and processing your emotions efficiently.
This will help to move you out of rash decisions or childish reactions and into more mature INTUITIVE decision-making.
