Sun in Aries + Spring Equinox; March 20, 2016 ☀♈

“Life stands before me like an eternal spring with new and brilliant clothes.” -Carl Friedrich Gauss

The Sun closes the door on sleepy Pisces and presses the restart button as it charges into fiery Aries on March 20th at 12:31AM ET, marking the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of a brand new Astrological year!

Agent Provocateur Aries is fueled by an inner drive that is a force to be reckoned with. The bright blaze of the Sun in Aries fuels the desire to conquer. Our ego and confidence rises, giving us an urge to begin again with a fresh perspective and the courage to face whatever is up ahead.

Total Eclipse Full Moon in Aries; September 27th, 2015 ☍❂ ♈

It’s time to dance with the the biggest and brightest Full Moon of 2015! A Total Lunar Eclipse occurs in shit-starter kick-starter Aries on September 27th @ 10:42 PM ET. Lunar eclipses are famous for revelations and sudden events.

“Supermoons take on a greater momentous tone than “regular” Full Moons, with culminations and manifestations that feel even more climatic and cathartic. With the increased magnetism amplifying the volcanic nature of Aries, this lunation will have many acting out from their shadow side, releasing raw, pent up emotions through passionate outrage.” Æterna

Mercury Enters Aries♈: Mar.30th-Apr.14th, 2015

All fired up!
“Mercury in Aries, helps to fire up the mental energies and encourage action or the pursuit of new ways, ideas, paths and possibilities.” –Dipali Desai
As Mercury transitions from peaceful, dreamy, Pisces to bold and brash Aries, our minds and our words will get less poetic and more action-oriented. Directness of speech, fast perceptions and an attitude of “just do it” mark this transit. While Mercury sprints through Aries, we may feel the impulse to cut through and get to the point in conversations and other forms of communication.
Body language speaks loudly now, as do actions. At its best, this transit can help words, awareness and insight to arise spontaneously, combined with the courage to express them. Our thoughts and ideas are pioneering, and we tend to speak more spontaneously and directly. On the other hand, we could also say things out of anger, impatience or impulse that we later regret.

Aries is a Fire sign known for being impulsive, so we must be careful what we say! Comments might be blurted out before they’re fully formed, giving them a tinge of sarcasm or even an edge of insult — whether we intend them to or not. And even if we think we know the full impact of our words, there’s the danger that we haven’t thought far enough ahead about the effect they’ll have on those we care about. It may be a time when we’d rather cut to the chase – acknowledge things and move on – rather than hang around to process the details.

Aries, The ℛam♈

Ruler: Mars

Modality: Cardinal

Season: Spring

Element: Fire

Stones: Amethyst, Diamond

Color: Red

The Aries Woman

Ruled by Mars and the first sign of zodiac, the sign of Aries is the baby in the karmic wheel of life. An Aries woman possesses eternal optimism, always looking forward and rarely back. Eager and enthusiastic, she is the alpha female of the pack, always at the front of the queue and kick-starting everything from projects to dinner dates. She is a woman of strength, has well-formed and intelligent opinions, and part of her charm is that she is so thoroughly independent and self-reliant. A fearless and natural leader, charismatic, energetic, and dynamic.

Aries is the sign of the self, people born under this fire sign strongly project their personalities onto others and can be very self-oriented. She’s a mixture of fearless warrior and undisciplined child.  She’s fun-loving and adventurous, and on the negative she can be sulky and brooding if she doesn’t get her own way, or is ignored. She tends to be very competitive, but unlike some signs also has a strong sense of fair play – she wants to win for herself; to prove she could do it, and isn’t interested in deceit or cheating her way to the top. She is not known as the most compassionate person around–she tends to have a “get over yourself” attitude to people hung up on their problems. You might learn a little something from her, and that is that the present and future count much more than the past. Whatever the Aries woman does, it will be with her whole heart and soul. There are no half measures with this sign.

The ℰlements, Pt. One: Fire Signs ♈ ♌ ♐




The four elements — earth, air, water and fire — are the very elements (or energies) of life. Since long before written history, there’s been an understanding of the elemental balance needed to sustain life. Many indigenous traditions honor the sacred circle, formed by the four elements, and seen in the Zodiacal wheel. In your own birth chart, the mix of elements shows you what you’re working with in this life. Your cosmic blueprint may be heavy on the fire, but lack earth to ground you. Each element behaves differently, and is one of three qualities (Fixed, Cardinal, Mutable)– how these mix in your chart, taking into account the planet and house placement, shines more light on your nature and life lessons.

When the fire element is present, there’s a warm radiance, a trust in life’s journey and a willingness to take risks. Any party or celebration is made better with the presence of a fully-charged up fire sign. They’re great catalysts for play, and liable to unearth the spontaneous side of those around them. Because they sense a golden thread of destiny and potential running through their own lives, they have a knack for leading others to theirs.

Fire signs act on instinct or “sixth sense,” and that makes them look reckless to more cautious types. They’re actually following a powerful intuition that keeps them at the leading edge of fresh experiences.

Fire is infused with the divine spark, and this can spread like wildfire to everyone around them. They’ve got a lust for life that is enviable. Those that are weighted down might try to toss a wet blanket on their enthusiasm, so Fire must vigilantly guard its beacon. It’s important for them to have cheerleaders to fan the flames of their interests.

But Fire that thinks only of itself learns the wisdom of the other elements the hard way. They’ll keep coming up against resistance, until there is willingness to see there are no short cuts. Each of the other elements has something to offer, and in return, Fire gives off a glow that is as nourishing as the rays of the Sun.

Those with planets in fire signs have a simmering at-the-ready stance, as they hunt for things that light them up. They’re prone to sudden illuminating flashes of insight and bursts of enthusiasm. Like fire itself, they can flare up when inspired, making them seem very passionate about life. They like to live large, and often feel frustrated by mundane chores and duties. Fire signs are known to be intuitive, and to rely on gut-level instincts. Going on faith in their inner guidance gets them far, but they have a tendency to skip crucial steps, or to be unaware of the emotional impact of their actions.
