A true personification of her Aries Sun Sign, Maya Angelou, the gifted poet, once said, 
“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.”

The emergence of spring in the northern hemisphere coincides with the vernal equinox, when the Sun begins its annual transit of Aries. This new season began at 8:30 pm PDT on March 19, 2016.

As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries symbolizes the birth of the new. Its energy is associated with youth, a time when we experience the liveliness that comes with embarking on an untested life path. Our attitude is one of eagerness. Aries forges new ground as an explorer, a warrior, the champion of a cause, or a rugged outdoors(wo)man. These are the people who may be in front of the pack, or who are willing to go it alone if that what circumstances dictate. Remember that you have each zodiac sign in the natal chart, so you will likely experience Aries energy in some aspect of your life, depending on its location in your particular birth chart. 

I have written more extensively about Aries at my old blog site Astrology Food for Thought, which you can access at this link: 

In the image above, I have posted my photo of a dahlia that I believe captures the dynamism of Aries. With its spiky petals, this dahlia appears almost edgy and in constant motion.   

In this next month, dare to begin something new. Approach it with an attitude without preconceived notions. See what happens!
