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.  

What You Need To Leave In 2018 Based on Your Sign

Going into a new year is always bitter sweet. It’s time to re-evaluate all the ups, the downs and the in-betweens and start making necessary adjustments. It’s another chance to re-do things bigger, better and more bossed up than the year before. Every bad habit, iffy friendship, or dead-end job now has a legit reason to be a thing of the past (as if they needed another reason.)

But, how can you improve and become a better you if you’re unaware, or even worse, are in denial about some of your not so nice qualities?

We all have them. It’s inevitable but that doesn’t mean we have to succumb to them by ignoring or denying that they’re there.

Remember, you have to know yourself in order to grow yourself. And as always, I’m here to help!

Here’s a list of what every zodiac sign needs to leave in 2018 and some much needed resolutions for a better you in the new year.

Aries

You don’t know what to say out of your mouth! You can be very harsh with your words when you don’t even mean to. Just imagine when you’re really trying to hurt someone’s feelings. It’s what you say and how you say it. Encouraging words go a long way, longer than you may think!

For 2019 try being a bit more sensitive. Put yourself in the shoes of others more often and try to empathize with those that confide in you. Have a heart in 2019 and you will see how others appreciate the change.

Taurus

You’re steadily complaining about your situation. You’re stuck, but you can’t seem to make the necessary moves to change your circumstances. You come up with amazing ideas, but execution is where you always fall short. You tend to waste your potential on the wrong people and things. Your complacency will leave you behind right along with 2018.

All of 2019, you need to spend your time and energy making moves to better your situation. Rather it’s financial, emotional, whatever, you have to get moving. Staying still does nothing for you but allow negative thoughts to consume your energy. Stay active, write down ideas and emotions. Start that new business you’ve been thinking about, finally record that song your wrote like two years ago, hit the gym. Just get up, get out and do something! Once you get on the move, it will be impossible to slow you down.

Gemini

People feel like you can’t be trusted. You have a way of throwing people off with slick comments or unusual habits.You have a tendency to give a compliment and an insult all in the same sentence. Most people aren’t astrologist so they don’t know that you are just naturally a unique individual. To others, you come across as sneaky and a bit envious.

Try being more transparent and genuine in 2019. Make people feel like they can depend on you because you’ll actually be there. Compromise with the ones you love so that they get what they need from you emotionally and vice versa. Try not to be so shady. Give compliments and actually mean them, call to genuinely check on a friend and want anything in return. Don’t be afraid to show people the good in you.

Cancer

You live in the past and it hinders your present. You get so caught up with who did what back then that you forget about all the blessings currently surrounding you. Every one has a story, you’re no exception. But if you let what you’ve been through, what you didn’t have, or who didn’t love you in the past jade you to the point of complete brokenness then you will never appreciate where you’ve gotten in life and you surely won’t be going too far in the future.

Live in the present for 2019. For once, silence your memory and focus more on the action of creating memories instead. Stop and look around you. Notice where you are in life now, at this very moment, and appreciate all that has contributed to your journey. Life is going to continue to keep happening so you might as well start enjoying it while you can.

Leo

Your entitled attitude is turning people off. You have a way of making people feel like they are indebted to you, emotionally, financially, even sexually sometimes. Everything doesn’t have to go your way. You make people feel like pawns in your grand scheme and if they don’t play their position and mess up your plan, they owe you their life. Forever.

Try stepping down off your high horse for 2019. Lower those high standards you’re holding everyone to and try accepting people for who they truly are, and not who you’re trying to shape them to be.

Virgo

You tend to overextend yourself to others, especially those who aren’t deserving of all your kind services. Unappreciative people can make you bitter which causes you to act out. And let’s face it, you can be mean. Like, really mean.

In 2019, let go of the people or things that are taking your kindness for weakness. After a while, you’re not going to be able to blame other people for why your bitter attitude.

Libra

If you’re not complaining about this, I can bet my last dollar you’re nagging about that. You have people running around like a chicken with his head cut off trying to do and find things to wow you. But it never works because you are unappeasable. You make people not even want to try anymore.

Every time you go to complain, say something positive instead, all throughout 2019. It takes some practice and getting it wrong a few times but manifestation is real and eventually it’ll stick.

Scorpio

You have been poking the bear and provoking people all year. You specialize in stirring the pot. Instigating comes as natural to you as lying does, which is another problem of yours. You love getting a rise out of people. People start to notice that when there’s drama, there’s a Scorpio. Then when confronted, you deny, deny, deny or just flat out lie, lie, lie!

You have to simply mind your business for 2019. This year, focus on not being in the middle of literally, everything. This way, you don’t have to lie or deny. Your focus should be on more productive things like improving your self-care regimen or finally getting that job with amazing pay.

Sagittarius

You haven’t been practicing what you preach. All year you’ve been telling people what’s going wrong in their lives but haven’t been forth coming about the turmoil you’ve been dealing with in your own life. You make people believe that your stuff just doesn’t stink. Little do they know, it’s stinks just as bad as everyone else’s. You hold on to your deepest, darkest secret and will go great lengths to keep it that way, but will pry information out of others and then judge them as if you can’t relate.

In 2019 it’s imperative that you either stop judging people for their mishaps or reveal your own indiscretions to be fair. Just remember that when people find out all that you’ve been hiding all while you’ve been outing everyone else’s business, they’re going to be pretty pissed.

Capricorn

If you don’t start to control that temper and that mouth, things will end badly for you. It doesn’t take much to get you riled up and then you absolutely lose it. This is never good, because after it’s all said and done, you always tend to regret your actions.

Make meditation and prayer major for you in 2019. The only way to contain your type of anger is to become more spiritually aware of yourself and the world around you. Meditation helps you center your emotions and build up a spiritual and mental calm within yourself that eventually leads to a total change in temperament. Prayer builds a relationship with your higher power. Ask for what you want, in this case, what you need, and that’s help with your anger.

Aquarius

Your stubbornness has caused you to lose out on some really good people and opportunities. When your mind is made up, that’s it. There’s nothing no one can say or do to change that. This leads to you walking around with a chip on your shoulder that you will never even acknowledge is there.

It’s hard for you to open up sometimes because emotions make you feel weak. But, 2019 is definitely the year to simply allow yourself to feel. Show emotion, give love, smile, hug and be loved. Everyone will love this vulnerable side of you.

Pisces

You cant keep pretending like you don’t know what’s going on around you just because you don’t want to deal with reality. Living in your own bubble doesn’t make the world stop turning. Avoiding things that are happening to and around you is a sure way to kick your 2019 off to a bad start.

Get more engaged in the world outside of your bubble. Try not to sleep life away or tune out the noise of the world. In your case, you need distractions from your own mind so you can finally see who and what is going on all around you, or the lack thereof.
