Aries – First Of The Zodiac

Welcome Aries Season & Find Out What They’re Like As Lovers & Friends

Aries, Aries, Aries! It’s a reason why they come first in the zodiac. They have the strongest leadership capabilities out of all the signs.

Whenever I think of an Aries, I think of the Aries archetype that I meditate on whenever I am trying to get a closer look into the facets of an Aries.

(I do this with all the signs, sometimes the archetype is a man, sometimes it’s a woman, I don’t decide, I let my meditation go wherever it goes and I follow it, not the other way around.)  

And for many reasons, the image that always comes to mind is a handsome high school jock who’s the star of the football team. He’s kind of douchey and fits that football player prenotion, but deep down, he’s a sweetheart. Of course, he’s used to having his way because he’s popular, athletic and usually quite the comic. And if its ever a time he doesn’t have all eyes on him, he knows how to use either his humor or aggression to get it. This guy often throws caution to the wind, and never backs down from an opportunity to lead the way, literally and figuratively.

In my meditations, whenever I call for Aries, he’s makes me meet him in front of his high school. He always has on his football gear with a football in his hands. He LOVES that game. He gives off the vibe that he doesn’t really want to be there with how he throws around his football and looks at me like he wishes I would hurry up and say whatever I need to say.

But somehow, in the midst of it all, he always manages to throw in this adorable, sarcastic smile when he’s trying to be flirty. He often interrupts me with a “I’ll do it”. I guess that’s just how he is, rather skip the small talk and get right to it. He knows he the best for the job, he always gets it done, fast and efficient, whatever it is.

Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, which is the planet of action, initiative, ego and what? WAR! Makes sense now, doesn’t it?

Personally, as a Capricorn, I mesh well with Aries, as friends and lovers. So, I thought you might gain from hearing my personal encounters with Aries. Maybe you share my perspective or need to hear it!

ARIES AS LOVERS

You may not know or believe this but despite Aries constant tough guy act, they are some of the sweetest lovers you will ever have. Once you learn how to co-exist with an Aries, you will find that they are extremely loyal (meaning good to you, if you are good to them, because they definitely cheat.) They will do anything for the ones they love, right after they give you a piece of their mind of course. Nonetheless, as a lover Aries will push you past your potential and make sure you have everything you need to be successful and will beat up anyone or thing standing in your way. Who wouldn’t want someone like that on their team?

The downside to falling in love with an Aries is that their strong personality often finds other strong personalities as a challenge. And we all know Capricorns and Aries never back down from competition. So, for me, this is usually where things get a little cray (literally).

This is usually how Aries view almost everything in their lives; competitively. And in love, that’s never a good perspective to have. Any zodiac sign with a strong personality will find the same issues with an Aries. Some signs will be able to deal with the constant tug of war with their lover. But you have some signs, like mine, that that kind of love will take a toll on and eventually be the reason why they leave. 

But an Aries’ tendency to love self is very strong, sometimes so strong that they come off as self-centered which in relationships tends to leave the other person feeling slighted and unnurtured by Aries. And when you bring this to their attention, you better believe they will laugh you out and insist that you’re being too “sensitive”. Then adding more fuel to the fire, they will resort to joking at a time when you’re not.

Their inability to realize or care enough to refrain from antagonizing behavior is what can make Aries come off as childish. But trust me, holding a grudge against an Aries is impossible. They always manage to reappear in your good graces telling that same joke that pissed you off.

Loving an Aries takes patience, balls and a helluva sense of humor. If you need an idea of what I mean, just think about Martin Lawrence and Gina’s love. Now do you get it?

ARIES AS FRIENDS

You need a ride or die? Someone that’s going to have your back more than you have your own? Then, call up your dear friend, Aries. They’ll never disappoint you. But, sometimes I can’t help but question if they go so hard for the ones they love because they love them or because they cant turn down a good ole brawl. Either way, they’ll always have you covered.

If you’re looking for a friend that sugar coats truths and holds back, an ARIES CANNOT YOUR FRIEND, period! They respect friends who they can be themselves with and wont constantly complain about how mean they are or what comes out of their mouths.

Aries are all about the ego, so you have to watch what you say to them if you want to avoid getting cursed out, even if it’s the truth. Ironic huh? They literally say whatever they want to whoever but make you feel like you better think twice before saying what you really think of them. That’s just an Aries for you. Remember how Martin used to treat Tommy, Cole and Pam?

But, what Aries lack in sportsmanship, they definitely make up for in humor. These are some of the funniest people you will ever meet. And if for nothing else, you will want to be in an Aries life just for the kicks and giggles.  

4 Things Every Sagittarius Says

Sagittarius

If there was ever one thing you needed to know about a Sagittarius, it’s that they are notorious for their sharp tongues. These people think a little too quickly on their feet and have the golden gift of gab.

If you’ve been lucky enough to really get to know a Sag, I’m sure you can agree that they will keep you on your toes with their snappy clap backs and opinionated perspectives.

You have to have extra thick skin and one hell of a sense of humor if you plan to befriend this sign. Lucky for you, I’ve experienced more Sagittarius than I care to recount. So, to give you an idea of what you’re up against, I’ve devised a little list of things that you can almost count on any sassy Sagittarius to say, male or female. Just to help lessen the blow a little, you know?

Now, let me introduce you to the most uncensored sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius!

“It Is What It Is”

You will almost ALWAYS hear a Sagittarius say this line. This pretty much sums up their personality in a nutshell. Sagittarius are known for being that brutally honest friend that will tell it like it is, even when–  no, especially when you didn’t ask. This sign simply doesn’t hold back their thoughts which can hurt or intimidate the people around them. And when you confront them about their unwanted honesty, their response is never an apology. Just a shrug of the shoulders and a dry “it is what it is”. Everybody can’t handle the truth, Sag. A lot of people can’t actually so good luck with that!

“I Don’t Know What You’re Talking About”

Whew Chile! This is should be number one. I love my Sagittarius people but they have a hard time accepting accountability when they’ve messed up. They fail to acknowledge the part they play in any situation that’s not in their favor. Somehow, it’s always your fault. They did this because you did that. If your Sagittarius ever hits you with “I don’t know what you’re talking about”, just know they know exactly what you’re talking about. They just want to know what it is that you think you know. And if you’re not able to spot this tried and true act from your Sagittarius, they will get you every time.

“That Ain’t Got Nothing To Do With Me!”

A Sag’s name is Bennet and they ain’t never in it! Or, at least that’s what they like to think. A Sagittarius is one of the coolest signs to hang around, but let’s face it, they can be a tad bit self-centered, especially when they’re going through something or God forbid, it’s their birthday! They’re just not interested in what you have going on if it doesn’t concern them in some way. This can be a little frustrating to lovers and friends of this sign because they easily come off as selfish and like a borderline user. Though they may never admit it, this is often how they lose friendships.

“Look, I Gotta Go”

A Sagittarius lives life on the go, one foot out the door and any other saying that expresses the freedom that Sag’s symbolize. Rather you’re out to lunch with a Sag or chatting over the phone, please believe that they will be ending the conversation with a “look, I gotta go” within a short amount of time. That’s just what they do. They are truly busy bees and will always be the first one to leave the party. Even if they don’t have anything else to do, you’d never know, because a Sag knows exactly how to make themselves seem and look important.

They will keep you guessing with their “I gotta go” demeanor, wondering just where and what they have to do that’s so important that they have to leave the party two and half hours earlier than everyone else. All I can say is keep guessing because a Sag will never tell. Every now again, they’ll invite you on their spur of the moment adventures, but if you turn them down, even once, they will never ask again and you’ll just be looking from the sidelines, along with everybody else they left at the party.

What You Need To Know About Every Zodiac Sign

LibraAriesScorpio
The zodiac consists of 12 signs relative to the months in a year. Each zodiac sign lasts for about a month hence why there are 12.

Oh, and you know how typical calendars begin in January and ends in December? Well, not in astrology! In this particular science, the very first zodiac sign begins in late March to mid April, making the year begin with the zodiac sign, Aries, not Capricorn.

So, basically when Beyonce sings “Signs” and starts the chorus with “Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini…” you better believe that astrologers everywhere cringe but sing along anyway because it’s Beyonce, duh. But really, the song should go like “Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra”

Yeah, I know. Doesn’t sound right to me either!

But anyway, the zodiac we go by, we meaning the Western hemisphere, is called the Tropical System. While there are other types of zodiacs to refer to such as the Vedic or the Chinese Astrology, the Tropical System is the easiest to understand and is most prominently used.

Each zodiac sign comes from a particular story in Ancient Greek and Roman mythology. That’s a story for a whole other post. But, the gist is that the zodiac isn’t just a random idea that some crazy lady with 17 cats came up with; there’s a story and science behind each and every sign.

Constellation Pic

Astronomically, every zodiac is just a constellation of stars positioned in a unique way that represents a particular zodiac sign such as Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, etc.

I’ve included each sign’s fundamentals, kind of like a Carfax report, but in this case, it’s a Starfax report! (You like what I did there, don’t you?)

Once you familiarize yourself with your own Starfax, you can begin to explore other signs of the people closest to you. You will see that getting to know the Starfax of other signs just as well as your own can put you at strong advantage when finding and maintaining true love, building new friendships or some cases avoiding them, bonding with your children or advancement in your career.

 

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Symbol: The Ram

Element: Fire

Ruling Planet: Mars

Aries are the warriors of the zodiac. They are very competitive and make great team leaders. Because of their innate dominance, they usually wear the pants in their relationships. Because of their strong and respectable demeanor, they are very influential; people tend to think very highly of them. Aries are known for their very down-to-earth sense of humor and can make anyone laugh without even trying. But, say the wrong thing to them and you will see a side of them you never want see again; the temper on these people is simply indescribable. On the contrary, Aries can act childish when they don’t get their way, throwing fits, giving people the cold shoulder and just out right being mean. Patience is something Aries lack and can really gain a lot from.

 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Symbol: The Bull

Element: Earth

Ruling Planet: Venus

We don’t call them the bull for no reason. Taurus are very direct people. They mean what they say and say what they mean. They are very confrontational and can come at you full force, without hesitation which intimidates some people.  Stubbornness is something you can guarantee to find in all Taureans. These are the kind of people that are dead set in their ways. Once their mind is made up about something, that’s pretty much it, there’s no changing it so don’t even bother.  But under all that thick, stubborn skin, there is a really affectionate and dependable person who knows no bounds when it comes to love and loyalty. Although, Taureans are known for their wondering eye, they never stray for too long; they believe in foundation, structure and stability. Taurus is like the wild child of the zodiac. They purposely break rules, ignore caution and do what they feel at all times.

 

Gemini (May 21- June 21)

Symbol: The Twins

Element: Air

Ruling Planet: Mercury

I’ve never met a Gemini who doesn’t have the gift of gab, I don’t think they exist. They use their charm and way with words to nestle their ways into your heart. These people know a little bit about everything, true braniacs. Gemini’s can be nervous and jittery so they can throw you off with their unusual tendencies, at first. But, once you finally get them to relax and get comfortable around you, you easily find that they are extremely intellectual and interesting. There’s never a dull moment with a Gemini and let me just say the turn up is real with these folks.

 

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Symbol: The Crab

Element: Water

Ruling Planet: The Moon

The emotions that come with a Cancer are full and plenty. They literally feel everything, and have the strongest intuition which is how they make decisions and draw conclusions. There is no in-between with these people. Either you’re on their good side or their bad side. When it’s good, it’s absolutely great. There’s nothing like being in love with a Cancer. They are passionate, affectionate and have a way of knowing just what to say to get in the nooks and crannies of your heart. Cancers really know how to nurture emotions much like a mother. In fact, they are considered the Mothers of the zodiac. But like the raft of Mother Nature, when a Cancer’s feelings have been violated, all hell breaks loose and they don’t mind revealing that bitter and petty side they all have inside.

 

Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)

Element: Fire

Symbol: The Lion

Ruling Planet: The Sun

Leos are like the stars or celebrities of the zodiac. The way that Leos crave attention and acknowledgement makes for them to be in the lime light quite bit. They love putting on shows with grand gestures, being extra, telling amazing stories., that sort of thing. Leos are so magnetically lively. But they are also very calculated just like the Lions they are. They are go-getters and know how to take advantage of an opportunity. These people are survivors so you can count on them to prey on you before they are ever preyed upon. They are prideful and care what others think of them, maybe even a little too much. These people are constantly in their heads, thinking and formulating, which causes their insecurities to surface often. They need attention, constant reassurance, and high regards at all times. These people want nothing but the best for themselves and will not waste their time if you fail to meet their high standards and steep demands.

 

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)

Symbol: The Virgin

Element: Earth

Ruling Planet: Mercury

These people have the heart of gold, for the ones they love. They will give you the shirts off their backs, their last meal as well as their last cent; Virgos are naturally givers. But for the ones they don’t, beware. Virgo have a mean side that comes out after they have felt unappreciated or played with. Since they value family, traditions and stability so much, they will go to any measure possible to make sure that their loved ones are ok and have everything they need, even if that means they have to be without. They tend to be a bit manipulative when trying to get their way, but for the most part they are honest people who don’t mind showing their hand.

 

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Symbol: The Scales

Element: Air

Ruling Planet: Venus

Libras are known for their extremely good looks and impeccable style. People born under this sign are socialites and enjoy attending and throwing extravagant events. Libras are extremely creative and it shows through their choice of fashion, art and home decoration. Libras can be very sexual and passionate which others find highly attractive. However, their good looks can’t cover up those bratty, emotional tantrums they just love to throw. Ironically, Libras are known for their continuous quest for peace and balance, but they tend to be argumentative and unfair in some situations. They tend to throw a blind eye to the ugly truths about themselves and/or the ones they love; they have a hard time dealing with reality and would rather live luxuriously in Libra Land.

 

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Symbol: The Scorpion

Element: Water

Ruling Planet: Pluto & Mars

This sign is by far one of the most difficult to figure out. They have a unique ability to adapt and fit in amongst so many different types of people and personalities that sometimes it’s hard to decipher which traits genuinely derive from Scorpio. But, one thing any and everyone knows about Scorpios are their high sex drives. Let me tell you, that is no myth honey! The libido on these people will definitely put you to shame and make you step your game up. Scorpios are usually good with numbers and lets nothing or no one get in the way of their money. These people are definitely riders, as Drake would put it. They have your back up and down, back and forth without question when they care about you. But, any enemy of a Scorpio can tell you that they are untouchable when it comes to war. But, aside from unbeatable war tactics and sex crazes, these people have so much love and dedication to offer. It’s just hard to see sometimes, these mysterious Scorpios love to play in the dark.

 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Symbol: The Anchor

Element: Fire

Ruling Planet: Jupiter

Sagittarius is like that kid that always has to explore everything. They appreciate the journey of life and love to make the most of things. These people look at the glass half full, not half empty. They get bored easily so they are always trying something new to stimulate their minds. Though they’ll never admit it, Sagittarius tend to have an envious side for people who are doing better and have more than them which makes them extremely territorial and on-edge. They can be a bit selfish and self-centered, only paying attention to things or people that concern them.  However, Sagittarius are very business minded and are the masters at turning opportunity into gain. Rather you believe in luck or not, Sagittarian people naturally harbor the gift of luck, things just always seem to go in their favor, one way or another.

 

Capricorn (Dec. 22- Jan. 19)

Symbol: The Goat

Element: Earth

Ruling Planet: Saturn

Family plays a big part in a Capricorn’s life. They believe in foundation and stability just like their fellow earth signs. They are very resourceful and can make something out of nothing. They think quickly on their feet and always has an opinion. Capricorns can come off as cold because they are really good at separating their mind from their emotion to make sound decisions. This is why Capricorns are considered to be the Fathers of the Zodiac, they have a very stern and judgmental demeanor. People born under Capricorn tend to have old souls, no matter their age, like they’ve been in this life before. This usually makes them a good judge of character. Capricorns are super hard-headed and prefer to learn the lessons of life on their own accord, which is why they tend to have things the toughest out of all the zodiac. Although they have a serious demeanor to people they don’t know, people who know them well know that they are really just goof balls. Capricorns live for a good laugh and are usually pretty funny their selves. They speak sarcasm pretty fluently and get off on a good, clean debate with their loved ones or even strangers, every now and then. Capricorns are the epitome of the definition of loyal. In fact, they are most often loyal to a fault and loyal to those who simply do not know how to reciprocate such honorable gestures.

 

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb.18)

Symbol: The Water Bearer

Element: Air

Ruling Planet: Saturn and Uranus

Aquarius always remind me of that kid in class that’s always raising their hand that either has the answer to the problem first or they are questioning the teachers methods. That’s what Aquarians do, ask a lot of questions and ruffle feathers. These are the most analytical people you will ever meet. They treat everything like an investigation and you can bet they will get to the bottom of things each and every time. They get the bigger picture and are big dreamers. You usually can catch an Aquarian actively participating in some humanitarian movement to save the earth, the whales, fashion, something! These people love to exercise their rights and express their individuality. These people do no conforming to others people’s ideas of normal for them. Though they may not conform, they definitely know how to fit in and be the life of the party. Aquarius are heavy socializers; they always seem be in the right places at the right times.

 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Symbol: The Fish

Element: Water

Ruling Planet: Neptune & Jupiter

Pisces are naturally loners. They really enjoy alone time because they need that privacy to reflect and plan. They are completely analytical and borderline perfectionist. Their need to be perfect gives them anxiety, then the anxiety stresses them out. Before you know it, they have tired themselves out before they even do anything. They are their omwn worst enemy. All the self-doubt and fearfulness of failure tends to water down all their amazing creativity and brilliant ideas. Any friend of a Pisces knows that they are great listeners and seems to always know the right advice to give. Most times, Pisces allow others peoples problem to become their own which can add to their sensitive and sad nature. Ironically, they never take heed to the good advice they give others for their selves; Pisces are known for dealing with people who take advantage of them and aren’t the most emotionally stable. Pisces are delicate people who need positive people around who can understand their uncertainties, not judge or make light of them. They just have a problem with telling that to the people who need to really hear it.
