The Sun enters the sign of Aries on Sunday, March 20, 2016 at 11:30 PM CST. This marks the Spring Equinox north of the equator.
Aries, the ram, ruled by Mars, is a fire element and a cardinal energy. The first sign in Hellenistic (ancient Greek) Astrology, they are the first sign of the zodiacal new year.
You can count on an Aries to initiate things with full passion. They are natural leaders because they are the first to blaze the trail. Adventurous, ambitious, highly energetic, and impulsive, Aries is the bravest of the signs.
It would not be wise to try to control an Aries. They have little patience for being waiting for your orders. Aries does not like to be controlled. Try and they will rebel, or simply walk away.
Full of passion, the typical Aries loves to skate on the edge of danger. Even the most mild of Aries will have at least one passion they follow with fervor. Their abundance of energy allows them to multi-task. When faced with a challenge, they meet it head on. Speaking of heads, Aries rules the head and can be prone to head injuries if they are too hasty or aggressive. They can be prone to high fevers which they quickly recover from.
With their fire, passion, and energy, Aries have the potential for being great athletes. Traditionally represented as a warrior, Aries is indeed brave and rarely fear risks.
Aries don't like to lie either. They don't have time to lie and they don't like the entanglements that come with lies. Though they may seem blunt to some, they really do not say things with the intention to hurt you. Like the Sagittarius, integrity is important to an Aries. You can depend on honesty from them.
For Everyone When the Sun is in Aries:
The Sun entering Aries coincides with the beginning of the first day of spring and the Astrological New Year (a holiday that the UN observes.) This is the time to take charge of things. Get a fresh start - spring clean. Throw out the old, outmoded, obsolete.
This is a time to stir things up (in a good way), make an impression, and take on projects that seem overwhelming with full confidence that you can get it done or at least get a sizeable dent in.
If you've held onto something for too long, it's a great time to either let go or to tackle it once and for all.
Be careful of being belligerent, impatient, or argumentative during this time when there can be a tendency towards stress if the energies aren't handled correctly. Try not to impulse shop or face anyone with aggression during this time that supports this kind of manifestation.
The key is to do, but no overdo.
This is a time to start anew. We are offered the opportunity to bring what we need into the cycle of a fresh start. It's a time for renewed health, especially when exposed to the fresh air and sunshine.
Surrounded by the Martian energy, fulfill your dream - be it entrepreneurial, pioneering, or a brave new venture. Feel free to be creative, dynamic, and fearless!
Whatever your sign is, this energy will help dare you to shine at your most brilliant so long you put the energies into action.
