Here we are in the middle of April, with this year’s Aries time almost gone! Among the funny photos that I’ve seen during this not so funny pandemic spring there was one with an isolated man celebrating his birthday by himself, all dressed up, surrounded by confetti, with a birthday cake in front of him. The picture also had a title: “people born in March and April in the following weeks”. Well, I particularly noticed that funny photo because…I received it as a birthday gift from one of my friends on the morning of my 37 anniversary this March 2020.
There’s a beautiful Romanian poem called “Rain in the month of Mars”. One of our famous artists also made a song with the same lyrics. I consider it “my” poem & “my” song since March is “my” month. For almost 25 years I considered myself an Arian. While reading various descriptions of this astrological sign, I easily recognized myself and I was proud to be born at the spring equinox, the first day of Aries. When I started studying astrology I was almost shocked to discover that actually I am more Piscean than Arian (with the Sun at 29 degrees and 55 minutes Pisces at the moment of my birth). Meanwhile I fully integrated this paradox of my chart (with both Pisces and Aries activated by different planets), but I still have a special sympathy for “my first astrological identity”, Aries. 🙂 So let’s a have a quick look at this sign’s astro-portrait!
Aries is about firmly releasing a straight-forward energy in an independent and impatient style. These individuals are strongly self-centered and generally seem to always be in search of a new challenge. This happens because Aries represents the intention of experiencing individual victories and increasing courage during stressful circumstances. Aries is also an intuitive sign, with a special gift of quickly drawing out the essence of a situation and taking steadfast first steps in accordance to those intuitions.
Although many people find Arians egoistical, I think they don’t usually do that in a narcissistic manner, but rather in a self-driven one. They do not need to be in the center of attention of anyone else’s, they actually need to be left alone and act by themselves, free of commitments that would only delay the achievement of their ideas. Aries is not a follower. He is a leader for himself.
This is why these individuals are best when being able to express their tremendous energy and take initiative. Different pioneering roles are usually expressed under the signature of this sign as well as a strong capacity for regeneration. As Fritz Riemann put it, Arians are like a roly-poly toy, quickly recovering themselves after sharply spending all their energy on something new and exciting.
Negative expressions of this sign might include nervousness, an angry general mood, aggressiveness and a disturbing competitive attitude, impatience, anxiety, anti-social manners, abandonment of initial steps as they perceive perseverance as boring.
Having all that said, I wish you a happy birthday if you are among the celebrated people of these times. Have a safe, healthy and beautiful spring!
