Change In Direction

In the Western zodiacal system, the four cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn each correspond to the beginning of a season, marking a clear change in direction. The Sun moving into decisive Aries demarcates the line between winter and spring in the Northern Hemisphere, or in the Southern Hemisphere, summer and autumn. People with a preponderance of cardinal signs tend to be the ones who step forward to initiate processes. Aries suggests hotheaded, spontaneous, and fierce energy, bringing to mind the archetypes of the Warrior, the Pioneer, and the Daredevil.

Impulse To Launch

Each sign emerges out of the preceding sign, so the jump from the dreamy musings of Pisces to fast and furious Aries might feel abrupt. To understand Aries better, consider the raw survival instinct contained in a tiny seed, as it cracks open the protective shell with incredible force and tunnels toward the light. Like a rocket ship, Aries describes the impulse to launch, unapologetically, into something entirely new. Notice that this energy does not hesitate or stop to think about consequences before it acts.

Muster The Courage To Act

At the most profound level, Aries symbolizes mustering the courage to act in the face of your fears. True fearlessness only comes when you embrace your vulnerability and take decisive action with full awareness. The trick to awakening Aries energy involves aiming the power of this dynamo into activism, athletics, or new endeavors. Before you rush headlong into the new season, take a moment to reflect on anything you wish to close down first.
