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 is a year of collaboration for you, Aries. You like to do things on your own, take the lead, and make things happen. But 2021 will bring you fresh insights into how working with others can lead to opportunities that match your needs with the needs of the world.
Take time this winter to reconnect with your hopes and dreams for the future.
When spring comes, seek out others who may share those dreams with you. Join a group or enlist your chosen family to create a new chapter where your ideals become a reality.
You may struggle with self-doubt and vulnerability as you share your aspirations with others, but collaboration holds the key to fruition.
They will be different from folks you usually hang out with. They will have wild ideas and eccentricities that may initially put you off. If you can handle the weird, these people will invigorate your own sense of self and inspire you to take risks in novel directions.
You don't need to go back to school necessarily, but you are learning to let your mental curiosity—instead of pure instinct—lead you.
Enlivening your mind will allow you to take advantage of the opportunities for growth in your vocation or social justice work you may be called to.

We have work to do this year. We may have to rethink our whole philosophy and approach in some quadrant of our life to bring it into line with our present understanding.
Read your Sun sign, Moon sign, and ascendant. Your ascendant points to the practical components where work needs to be done, and the Sun to the evolution of your core personality, and the Moon to where you're challenged to stretch your heart.
Aries: Your relationship balance between your deeply-loved independance and your interrelatedness to community begins a new cycle.
Instead of ambivalence towards connection, with fear that you'll be trapped, engage community with healthy boundaries.
This begins to heal some lingering self-doubts and, towards the end of the year, helps create an opening in your dream world or spiritual path.

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.

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
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.
Aries Rising are the trailblazers of the zodiac. These rising signs will most likely always be the first to try the rope swing or open the dance floor. Their instincts are spot on and have a strong passion.
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.

Mars is our sense of "Get Up and GO!"
It represents being in motion and the capacity to take action and do. Mars can also affect our temperament.
