The spring is here, and with it, a new zodiac year and season begins. Kicking off on March 21st, the day after the Spring Equinox, we welcome the start of the Aries season. Intense in nature, this season is focused on taking action, building momentum towards your goals, and honing in more on your personal power than ever before.
This is a time of trying new things, seizing opportunities, kickstarting new ideas, and having more fun in your daily life with a playful new outlook on life.
As we enter their season, this Aries energy is beaming all around us for all Zodiac signs and is likely to affect us in a number of different ways. So to give you a better idea of what you can expect to feel for the next several weeks, today, we’re going to talk all about the Aries season.
We’re going to cover Aries’s personality traits, ruling element, planetary influence, and some of the key energies that the other Zodiac members can expect to feel while we linger in their sign this season. So, without further ado, let’s dive in and get started.
Aries Personality Overview
Starting with their personality, the Aries sign is most known for its ambitious and passionate nature. As the first member of the Zodiac, their very essence is based around all things new, exciting, and fresh.
With their eyes forever fixated on future endeavors, Aries has been known to dream big and always put in extra work to achieve their goals, despite any obstacles that may lie in their way.
They love to win and be in the spotlight and will always go the extra mile to see themselves to victory. They are also nature-born leaders and always seem to excel in areas where they can do things their way.
As a result of their fiery personality, the Aries can also struggle with impulsive, stubborn, and hotheaded behavior, which can lead them to say and do things they may not mean. They often lack self-control in times of frustration and can struggle with owning up to their actions.
Despite how impulsive and stubborn Aries can be, their spontaneous nature can also benefit them, as it can help to push them out of their comfort zone to face their fears head-on instead of running away from them.
This unpredictable side of their personality can also sometimes make them difficult to be around. Aries will need to be careful about being too cocky and insensitive when it comes to making friends or romantic connections and may need to keep their attitude in check to avoid pushing people away.
But aside from their general personality, when it comes to their planetary ruler, the Aries is ruled by the planet of Mars. Known as the God of War or the planet of action, energy, and desire, the energy of Mars is greatly reflected in the way that the Aries thinks and acts.
As a naturally confident, adventurous, and spontaneous soul, Mars inspires great potential in the Aries sign, allowing them to set their eyes to the future and never look back. This can help to fuel the mighty ram to overcome obstacles, keep their eyes on the prize despite inconveniences, and keep an optimistic attitude along the way.
Such fiery and intense energy is also what contributes to the notorious Aries temper when things don’t go their way. Aries would do well to keep themselves grounded and not let their feelings get the better of them, as this could cause them to lash out and become too headstrong to see any sense.
Next, aside from their planetary rulers, the Aries is also deeply influenced by their elemental sign, which is fire. Known as the element of passion, the influence of this element is believed to contribute to the ardent nature of the Aries. Those born under the sign of fire are considered to be fighters, warriors, and natural achievers that march at the beat of their own drum.
This alongside their planetary influence, is what allows the Aries to channel that unbeatable self-inspired ambition towards all their goals and dreams and keep a steady pace on them until they are finished.
While the fire element can certainly reflect a lot in the personality of the Aries, it may also symbolize their innate ability to light up the world of those around them. In love and friendship, Aries can be a beautiful companion to have at your side and can both encourage and inspire you to pursue your dreams no matter what.
Their ever vibrant flame could symbolize the life they give to those around them and how they push other signs to dream bigger, work harder, and never give up, no matter the circumstances.
Ultimately, a fire sign’s greatest ability is the way that, even if they aren’t aware of it, they can act as a light for others to follow in a variety of different ways. Despite their intensity at times, the Aries is a true treasure of a sign to have in your circle and can teach you how to believe in yourself more with each day that passes, which is very rare to find in a companion these days.
Next, on top of their ruling planets and elemental sign, each Zodiac sign also has a symbol that they are represented by that pays homage to their overall energy. For the Aries, this symbol is represented by the ram, which is believed to symbolize the sign’s innate ability to charge ahead full throttle at their goals and challenges.
When looking at the personality of the Aries, this animal symbol could also symbolize their courage, fearlessness, or even their leadership ability. Just as a ram will butt heads with enemies to maintain dominance and take charge of a herd, this could symbolize the fire signs’ ability to take a head-on approach to their life and guide others to stand up strong and do the same.
No matter what meaning stands out to you the most, there’s no doubt that this symbol is a powerful representation of the many aspects of the Aries personality and how it makes them a unique sign full of surprises unlike any other.
How does Aries season affect other signs?
And lastly, now that we’ve gone over some of the key traits and correspondences of those born under the Aries sign, we also wanted to talk about how this fire sign affects the rest of the Zodiac members while we linger in their sign. With that said, as the first member of the Zodiac, the Aries sign carries with them the energies of new beginnings.
This is a time of shifting your mindset, your goals, and your values to align better with what you feel in the present time. If you’ve been considering making a change in your life, the Aries season is an excellent time to start making moves on it and bringing these visions to fruition.
Aside from this, fire signs tend to have a natural happy-go-lucky attitude and are always looking for ways to spice up their lives. As a result of this lighthearted approach to life, this could also encourage the signs to slow down, get away from daily stress, and focus on having some fun this season. All signs could begin to feel more ambitious, spontaneous, and competitive as we progress through the month.
Since Aries’s blazing soul is the sum of hard work and determination, this energy could also encourage the signs to shift their focus more to their goals with an empowered new approach.
Has there been something you’ve been wanting to achieve in your personal or work life but have been afraid to take that chance? Well, the Aries season may just be the perfect confident booster you need to get you there and could have the signs taking more of a leadership approach to different areas of their lives as a result.
On the other hand, as the first sign of the Zodiac, the Aries is also considered to be the baby of the Zodiac signs, which can make them lack certain insight when it comes to taking chances, often making them leap before their look. This doesn’t make the Aries season a particularly good time for serious or long-term decision making, as you may not be able to see the lingering effects or risks of a big decision right now.
Since the Aries sign has such a hot temper and isn’t very tuned in with the sensitivity of others, you may also find yourself feeling a little more defensive and argumentative over the next few weeks.
It may not be the best time to stir talk of sensitive topics in relationships or business connections, as this could lead to a lot of empty and impulsive words being said that could do more harm than good.
Lastly, much like the other fire signs, the Aries season is about channeling more confidence and self-empowerment. This is a time to come alive, awake from the winter, and spring yourself into action with the changing season. More than anything, it’s a time to believe in yourself without seeking validation from anyone else.
You have what it takes to achieve your dreams, and Aries is here to remind you of that and kickstart you into action to start chasing it. Don’t hesitate to be bold in taking charge in your life, trying new things, and just allowing yourself the freedom to have a little fun. Aries season is not a time to be formal or proper; it’s a time of adventure and new beginnings.
So get out there, and let your hearts soar, Zodiac signs. It’s bound to do you and your mental health well after such a long and stagnant winter.
Overall, the Aries season is a beautiful time of action, ambition, and regaining your self-power like never before. If you’ve been looking for the perfect opportunity to focus more on yourself or kickstart motion on a new goal, be sure to allow the inspired and ambitious energy of this fire sign to guide you towards a new area of insight, dreaminess, and fun like no other.
It’s the age of the Aries now, baby, and it’s time to let that inner fire burn bright once and for all.
Happy Aries season!
