Aries Zodiac Information
Date Duration: March 21 to April 19
Sign Quality: Cardinal
Planetary Ruler: Mars
From March 21 to April 19, the Sun is in Aries. Aries is the first of the signs on the Zodiac wheel and is positioned at the beginning of spring. The first of the fire signs, Aries emits a very high frequency energy. During this period every sign of the Zodiac will be exposed to both the positive and negative aspects of Aries’ energy. How this energy affects you depends on your personality and your ability to adapt to the changes and challenges that you might experience when the sun aligns with Aries.
Ruled by Mars, the Roman god of war, but also the planet of willpower, energy, and strength, Aries are trailblazers and highly ambitious.
Whereas Pisces has the benefit of insight derived from other signs because it wraps up the Zodiac cycle, Aries is the opposite because it restarts the Zodiac wheel and as such, everything starts anew during Aries season. This is why Aries is known to learn from trial and error and have a tendency to take the leap right away when an opportunity presents itself.
Aries’ energy is vastly different from the previous season, though people who are particularly sensitive might find Aries’ energy a bit too much whereas others might find the drive they need to pursue their goals during this season. Fortunately, there are stones and crystals that can help you during Aries season, whether you want to temper your negative traits or boost your positive ones, they are especially useful during this period of high energy. Read on to learn more about Aries and its birthstones.
