ARIES ENERGIES, CHALLENGES, AND KEYWORDS
Aries rules the fundamental Life pulse of Spirit that originates at higher levels of consciousness. In order for this impulse of the basic Life Force to reach deep into creation (i.e. the physical, emotional and mental realms), it must be strong and assertive. Hence, as the Aries "signature" or pulse permeates existence, it is courageous, bold, daring, impulsive at times, confident and straightforward. This impulse was planted deep within us to insure that we would continue through countless lifetimes, lessons and obstacles on our journey home (symbolically manifested in Astrology as the 12th and last sign of the Zodiac, Pisces).
Aries is an expression of Universal male energy. It is the Spiritual Warrior within each of us. It rules the physical body and basic vitality. It rules beginnings, initiations, our passions and desires, our instinctive reactions and gut level and innate knowing. It rules our basic (and encoded) purpose, our authentic self...our fundamental connection to Spirit.
Misused or blocked Aries energy can act out in each of us at some time or other. It is most likely that when we are overly aggressive, careless, impulsive, display outbursts of anger, are argumentative, impatient, willful, headstrong, egotistical or self-centered, we are under the influence of a strong Aries (or Mars) transit. These qualities manifest to the degree that one is more strongly identified with their ego personality, rather than their Soul Personality. Becoming more aware of one’s connection to Spirit is perhaps the quickest way to mitigate these lower expressions of Aries.
Other ways to work with Aries energies are to get grounded, slow down (even a little will help, as Aries energy is often impulsive), listen to others and yourself. Focus your energy into positive and constructive projects. Aries energy wants to do something and often gets stuck and off track when it is bored or focusing on something that is futile or senseless.
Ways to enhance Aries energy are to be bold and courageous. Try something new. Get involved. Initiate activities and projects--even a simple or basic task. Sometimes that's exactly what we need! Don't complicate things. The Aries in us sees things simplistically and fundamentally. (A basic, yet profound, signature of our relationship to Spirit). And if you are drawn to do so, ask that your ego personality be aligned with your Soul Essence in more direct ways. This will begin a powerful process that will bring the ego under the direction of the Soul. This is an important step for each of our evolution. You will know intuitively if this is a “next step” for you. And once you do, you will be given the information and insight you need to enter this process.
Colors to work with to access these energies:
- Red and bright, bold tones of all colors.
The Spiritual focus now is to connect with this elemental impulse of life, thus remembering your basic connection to Spirit. Focus on your own inner authority, the unique essence that is you. As you do, much else in your life will unfold naturally and with little or no effort. This does not mean sit back and do nothing, but rather place your attention on your naturalness and notice the rhythm and flow that we are all a part of. Any means to become aware of our Spiritual Will and purpose will further this process. Some suggestions are Tai Chi, Yoga, meditation and mindfulness practice.
Affirmations for the time of Aries
- I choose to remember that I carry a spark of the Divine within me.
- I know that my purpose will be revealed to me as I honor this.
- I hear and respond to the Call, knowing that only I can fulfill my part.
CRYSTALS TO WORK WITH
Clear quartz generators: Clear quartz is the crystal to work with to help us to determine a sense of purpose. Generators, also called single points, can help us to concentrate, focus and magnify our own individual purpose by remembering our True Essence.
Malachite: Called the "Truth Stone" because it brings us to a place of greater personal truth and knowingness. Malachite will draw out that which is impeding our spiritual path and give us indicators of where to focus our energy next.
