"Mystical Fire"


Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. The sun travels through this sign (SINE WAVE- everything is on the ecliptic sine wave of the sun) from March 21st -April 20. Being the first sign of the astrological cycle, it means new beginnings, and the spring season. Flowers bloom, birds chirp, nature rejoices because the sun has crossed back over the equater and brings more daylight to the Northern Hemisphere. 

Being the first cardinal fire sign, Aries will be extremely energetic and naturally independent. They like to be first at everything, and beong ruled by the Mars, the God of War, are courageous and make great warriors. 


Mars is Ram spelled backwards and Aries means Ram in Latin.

Ram also is an acronym for Right Ascension of Meridian, the path the sun makes in the sky every day. The word Ray and Ra also come from the sun. Facing south in the Northern Hemisphere, one will see the sun right ascend to the meridian (the Highest point in the sky) every day.


The same Aries traits can ring true for Aries Rising and Aries moon (as with other signs). That bursting, cardinal fire energy can have an inspirational and motivating effect on others: Aries Risings in the their first impressions on others and Aries Moons with their energetic, inspiring, emotional reactive nature. It's all about energy and enthusiam with Aries and because of this they always like starting new projects. Ambition is a strong suit.

Being the babies of the zodiac, Aries will have that lamb-like innocence, a gullibity to them, yet, like the Ram, they will dive headfirst into everything, without thinking. 


All cardinal signs will exhibit an enterprising nature: starting things, kicking off, taking action, because the cardinal signs each begin a season. Aries with spring, Cancer with summer, Libra with autumn, and Capricorn with winter.


The mystical spirit of fire is strong in Aries because it's the fire that rules the head and heaven. Inspiration, a trait of Aries fire energy has the root word "spirit" in it. Pir - similar to Pyr- amid is the root word for FIRE. 

Since the sun exalts in Aries, ie the sun is resurrected from winter and brings warmth and longer days than nights when he enters Aries, this is a very dignified sign for the sun to be in.  The vitality of life is strong in Aries (as is in all three fire signs) because the element fire is attributed to the sun, THE GIVER OF ALL LIFE.
