Aries (March 20-April 19) Wake up! The cardinal Aries Sun reminds us why we're alive and what feeds our life force.
Community, ingenuity, collaboration, idealism. It's time to honor the philosophy of love and the power of community.
This year is about fully embodying the truth of your own values. Beyond ideas and ideals, the ways that you live and fight for what you cherish is woven into the fiber of your being, is alive in your muscles, nerves, blood, bones.
2022 will continue to slow you down so you can become more intimate with your own instincts, which sometimes move so fast you can hardly see them as they dash by.
The beginning of the year starts off with potentially challenging energies for you, as deeply personal work is activated in a part of your chart that is visible, asking you to explore your public roles and how your wounding and need for love shows up in them.
Surrender to what presents itself for healing, listen humbly and consider your stamina and the stamina of your relationships. Summer is not without some challenges but can be spent in integration, cross-pollination and celebration.
The last four months of the year, things will not move as directly as you may like. You won’t be able to speed up with impunity yet, but will be continually pointed back to the things that require a slower pace.
The more you can soften and explore deeper realms of consciousness, the easier it will be for things to move the way they need to. Use your courageous honesty to learn the difference between self-soothing illusions and the freeing power of imagination.

As Jupiter and Neptune conjunct in Pisces, exact in April, echoing throughout 2022, they challenge us to use our sensitivity, vision, and imagination to open a visionary portal, while at the same time staying grounded enough to not get lost, to stay present and use this vision wisely.
Aries: You're a natural leader but this year, lead by introspective example. A portal can open within your psyche, in the dream world, and behind the scenes.
Some new level of self-honesty can take you on a journey which improves your mind-body connection.
Next year be ready to step into leadership.
Heather Roan Robbins © Mother Tongue Ink 2021
If you're born under the Aries Sun, you radiate this straightforward, strong, direct energy, but can be easily sidetracked by reactivity.
Own your own paradigm, mature your rebellion into leadership. Forgive others their more circuitous route.

Moon in Aries accesses our fire; temper, impatience and passion.
We feel an urgency to focus, but we can lose our empathy. It's time to do what truly makes us feel alive, to initiate projects and set boundaries.
Their sparky personality is their gift; their challenge is to learn patience and consistency.
Aries by Day: We come alive and cop an attitude.
The mood is direct, brusque, impatient, and alternates between energized and lazy. Let's get the party started and boldly go where we have not gone before.

If your rising sign is in Aries, that means you have a "Natural Chart." Meaning your houses and signs correspond to the same trails as the zodiac signs, each house is ruled by a sign, an Aries Rising has a chart where their house is ruled by their natural sign.

If this doesn't sound like you, remember that the rising sign is only one peice of the astrological puzzle. An Aries Rising and Pisces Moon may be quick to interact but has lots of secrets and depth that they only show with close friends and family.
Welcome to the first day of Spring, the Sun moving into Aries also announces the Spring Equinox.
The world comes alive during this time. Spring Equinox awakens the plants, animals and sky. The weather shifts and rainbows can be seen scattering the sky after spring storms.
We begin to prepare for a busy season ahead. The gardens are being prepared and we are eager to explore the wider world after the quiet dark months of winter have passed.
Aries rules the sunrise. As Spring brings new growth, the sunrise begins a new day. Birds start to chirp and flowers unfurl their petals for the sun to soon warm them. We stretch our bodies and our minds and start thinking about the day ahead and what it holds for us.
We start fresh every day, every season.
The traditional Aries "spark" can be found in the synapses that fire in our brain. These signals are also the match to light our movement everywhere in our body.
The eyes open and perceive the world first thing in the morning, Opening our eyes and senses is one of the first steps to truly awakening from the Pisces dream world.
Planets in Aries are quick to start projects and often love to work alone. They crave a sense of freedom and often take the lead on ideas.
Make sure to keep fueling the fire, as that beginning sprak can easily burn out. These planets in Aries can be impulsive, and firey.
“The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death.”
The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign. A person with an Aries rising has what is called a “natural chart”. A rising sign is the sign ascending on the eastern horizon on the time of your birth, it can be calculated using a rising sign calculator here!
From the moment of our first breath, we strengthen in chi, and gradually keep discovering, expressing and becoming more conscious of our greater selves.

It represents being in motion and the capacity to take action and do. Mars can also affect our temperament.
