As we continue to navigate through the pioneering, direct, self-starting sign of Aries, we learn more about what it takes to put ourselves first and take the risks to lead to new beginnings and experiences. Being number one isn’t easy, but Aries has the inner conviction and motivation to set a fiery path forward like no other zodiac sign.
Aries & Its Mars Rulership
What exactly is it that makes Aries so direct and forward-moving? Thanks have to be given to Aries’ planetary ruler, Mars. Mars energy is all about taking action, willpower, asserting the self, and fighting for what we want. In Greek mythology, Mars is the God of War ready to take charge of the battlefield. So, the energy of Aries basically takes no prisoners. It’s all about looking out for the self. While this may seem selfish to some, that’s what being number one is all about. It’s for this reason that Aries is one of the best competitors in the zodiac.

Frustrated & Needing To Take Action
One of the main characteristics of Aries energy is its desire to take action. If you’ve ever been in the company of someone with lots of Aries or Mars placements, it’s as if they’re just teaming with this desire to do something… anything! In some ways, when this energy isn’t being actively used it can come off as frustration because there’s no outlet for all of that active, forward-moving Martian energy. Of all the zodiac signs, Aries definitely needs regular physical activity as this allows them to release pent-up energy.
Taking Charge With Boldness
Aries teaches us the importance of taking charge. So many of us miss out on the opportunity to get to where we want to be and align ourselves with what we desire because we aren’t willing to own our ability to move forward. Whether this be out of fear or uncertainty, Aries is not afraid to put themselves out there and make their mark. After all, new beginnings just don’t happen on their own. Aries understands that if a change is desired, they have to be the ones to initiate it.
Assertive Or Aggressive
Because Aries is just naturally oriented to take action, this requires them to step up to challenges that would intimidate others. Aries just doesn’t have that fear that keeps them from moving forward. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries doesn’t know anything other than what they want. Aries wants what they want right now. From assertiveness to aggression, Aries is ready to risk it all to get ahead. In many ways, Aries’ first position frees them from the baggage of the past allowing them to embrace forward movement far easier than others.
Risking It All
One of the main reasons why Aries is able to take action fearlessly is that they are not afraid to take risks. Just consider the energy of spring which is associated with the Arie. In order to experience warmer temperatures and the new blooms of spring, there is a need to move beyond the comfort zone. While others are busy ruminating on whether they should move forward plagued with doubts or needing the confirmation of external sources, Aries decides to be its own self-starter. Aries just has to be careful about taking risks that could lead to trouble due to a desire to leap into the unknown without consideration. As Aries matures, they gain an understanding of the benefit of calculated risks that benefit them as opposed to risks that lead to frustrating false starts.
Competing To Win
Aries is motivated by competition, and the desire to be number one. Whether it’s getting the best grades in school, winning a gold medal, or becoming the CEO of their own company, when Aries sets out to do something they are gunning for the top spot. This can make Aries appear quite assertive and even aggressive to others due to their direct approach. Remember, Aries’ planetary ruler Mars is associated with wars and battles, so Aries is not intimidated by the competition. If anything, it just motivates Aries to go stronger and do better.
Full Speed Ahead!
Aries energy encourages all of us to consider what gets us going. What are we motivated by? Do we have any ambitions? How do we plan on getting ahead? What keeps us from taking action? The pure expression of Aries energy is always full speed ahead. Even if they don’t know where they’re going, Aries has this pioneering spirit that makes things happen. If there’s anything that Aries can teach us it’s the importance of owning our lives. We are born, and where we end up depends on the actions that we take.
We are encouraged to embrace the clean slate and newness that allows Aries to move forward without ruminating on the what if’s and the possibility of defeat. Losing is not an option for Aries, and this zodiac sign encourages itself and everyone else to get out there and make a move. After all, we can’t be pioneers if we aren’t willing to take the risk and move full speed ahead.
It’s officially Aries season where it’s all about feeling the warmth of a new season and embracing the new. Let’s make the most of new beginnings by integrating the positive expression of Aries’ forward-moving, self-starting, take-charge energy.
