I am not about to downplay the COVID-19 pandemic but I think its safe to say: we know fire. As the first sign in the zodiac (March 21 through April 20), I thought it would be perfect timing to not only restart my Mystic Universe series on horoscopes, but also start in Aries season. Every 30 days or so, the Sun visits a new zodiac sign in a season of astrological energy. Known as a feisty sign (one of three fire signs), when we’re in the season of Aries we can all be a little fiercer and cardinal in our ways.
Why does Aries Season matter? Sprung from the dark months of winter and brightened by Daylight Savings, Aries resets the zodiac wheel and offers us all a new beginning. Just like a Ram, Aries will take the new season (and life!) by the horns and blaze new trails for us all. This could never ring more true as we’re all sheltering in place and waiting to restart our lives. An Aries will traditionally put themselves first, causing us all to feel a bit more selfish during this season. Perhaps this is a good time to say what you mean and fight for what you want. After all, there’s more to life than just paying bills and taking care of responsibilities.
For me, I always look at my birthday as the start of a new year (Feb. 29) but naturally, I never fully start my annual to-do list until late March. And as I face yet another layoff and job hunt due to the virus, I’m hopeful we will all rise up when this is over. Now is the time to start that thing you’ve been meaning to start, end that toxic situation you’ve been meaning to end and think up new ways to set the trend in your life.
