On the other hand, Aries is basically the ‘open mouth insert foot’ sign. It acts first and thinks later. Often creating havoc and anything but balance. It is the sign of the pioneer, the warrior, the adventurer. Aries moves forward impetuously and is often clumsy in its movements. There is little or no self-consciousness about this, however. Aries people are often totally surprised when someone else complains about how often they ‘always drop and break things.’
It is the first cardinal fire sign and like other cardinal signs, it is thought to move ‘2 steps forward and 1 step back.’ They can be excited to start new things, but not always prepared to continue. That is the job of Taurus.
Right now, we have Uranus, Lucifer and the South Node in Aries as well. You may feel yourself chomping at the bit to make big changes in your life. Go for it! But be prepared for a little blow back. With the Moon conjunct Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn today, be on the lookout for fear to nip at your heels trying to keep you stuck in your old ruts.
The challenge, as always, is to find balance within and without. Not the same for everyone. All of us have our own balance point, which is best determined through meditation and quiet alone time. Check in to see how you feel. While fear has its place in our psyche…alerting us to real dangers, most of the time it is our ego trying to keep us from moving forward in our lives. Unless you see a tiger charging you, most fear is based on imaginary dangers. Fear, is one of the ‘negative’ aspects of Saturn.
Remember the saying that the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. “Nothing ventured, nothing gained”. We have adopted the slogan “Just say no.” Why adopt this: “Just try it.”
What is the purpose of being human? What is the point of your life? Why are you here? To sit, safe on the couch watching TV? I know everyone would answer my last question with a resounding and emphatic “NO!!!” So…..what are you going to DO about it? Aries says GO DO IT! NOW! You can sleep later. See you….gotta go DO stuff now.
