Aries are developing courage.  Jump first, deal with the consequences in mid air, land on your feet, and keep moving. Aries is about action not vacillation. She is the initiator trailblazing through unfamiliar territory,  as though she knows exactly where she’s going and what she’s doing.  She doesn’t always, but unlike the rest of us, Aries doesn’t want to hear that it’s all very safe and there’s no risk involved.  She’s at her best in clutch situations.  After she’s jumped off the cliff and things start to go wrong, when the worst-case scenario unfolds before her, adrenaline surges, and her mind sharpens.  Refexes kick into high gear.   That’s when Aries comes to life.

Jumping off metaphorical cliffs describes most of Aries day-to-day experiences.  Being very direct with people who don’t want to hear what she has to say, challenging someone to an athletic game of strength and endurance, investing in the high-risk start-up, marrying the most passionate guy you’ve ever met after knowing him for a week.  It’s all about risk and stormy passion and anger, and needing to win.

Aries carries within herself deep insecurity, but exudes confidence.  She likes to lead others in new directions.  That is her purpose.  She’s fired up now and for the next few years Uranus will be electrifying and emboldening her. Determination is her strength.  Discipline needs to be developed.
