The Sun in Aries

by on Mar.21, 2021, under In The News, SkyerLearning

Happy Solar New Year as of March 20th, 2021! We are living in a new world in this New Year! Nothing resembles the past but for the remnants of structures and practices that used to be. And with this Solar energy, we are here to recreate and reimagine ourselves brand new.

As the months roll by we are given a chance to explore all parts of ourselves, as the Sun transits each house of the zodiac. While the Sun transits in Aries, a Cardinal Fire sign, we explore life from our child within. Like being born, we are exploring our new world with enthusiasm and curiosity. The baby is interested in basic needs, like food, water, and sustenance. We are looking at what nourishes and comforts us.

Aries is the sign that initiates our solar year, with the first month of spring; the Vernal Equinox. This is when the seeds that lie beneath the coverings of winter begin to receive the proper stimuli to sprout. Likewise, the Aries energy brings the individual a curiosity much like a child‘s, with the will and energy to act on it.

Aries, ruling the first month of the solar year, also rules the first house of the zodiac. Aries is a cardinal sign. Cardinal signs govern the beginning, the source, and plant the seeds for what is to come. Aries is a natural leader, an initiator that can be willful and courageous. Directing that will is the challenge for the Aries individual, taking care not to be a dictator or willful child.

Aries is the first fire sign. The fire element brings even more energy to the mix. Aries energy is impressive, bringing fresh insights, quick quips and great humor. Aries people can delegate well when they develop patience; as they see the whole picture faster than the rest of us, but cannot do it all alone. The challenge for them is to lead others in a team effort.

Aries is ruled by the Planet Mars. Mars is male/positive energy, a warrior energy that likes a good fight. When well directed, a strong Mars can lend to the individual a great courage, a hero‘s temperament, confidence and leadership. Badly directed can bring disharmony, selfishness, arrogance and mischeif.

The Ram is the symbol for Aries. Rams plough with their horns to expose the food beneath the surface, the sprouts that lie below, to feed their family. So the Ram energy is breaking the surface to be nourished and fed.

To strive for the highest Aries energy would be to have the strength and courage to fight for whatever ideal, cause, person that you believe in enough. To be willing to speak your mind with calm authority, rather than impulsively. To learn to listen to others so as to be the best leader. And, to pioneer new horizons that others fear to tread.

The Vernal Equinox 2021

by on Mar.04, 2021, under In The News

Saturday March 20th at 2:37 AM PDT, (daylight savings time begins March 14th) is the first moment of SPRING! Oh boy, am I ready for this season to begin! Every year when the Sun is stationed at 0 degrees Aries, it is the astronomical first day of Spring. That is for the Northern Hemisphere; and for the Southern, it is their first day of Autumn.

Equinox is from Latin, meaning equal night. It is equal day/night, and happens twice a year. For centuries people have celebrated this day as it brought hope for more light, more warmth and longer days. It signals when to plant our seeds according to where we live. It heralds the dream in action, created over these last weeks while the Sun is in Pisces.

Aries is a Fire Sign, and as such ignites our individual concerns and actions. Being ruled by Mars, the planet that represents how we put our dreams into action, we are self driven like the child in a new world. It is very basic and primal; willing to cry out when no one’s listening. This Fire Sign begins things, animates life from fauna to flora. We can derive much inspiration for our personal objectives and have the energy to follow through.

This childlike energy is best expressed creatively, as in planting a garden, refurbishing your surroundings, creating things with your hands, using color and form to bring your ideas to life. Take a walk and look around you for materials to create with, like finding a special rock. Everything can look magical through a childs’ eyes, so allow yourself to be that child for your happiest existence.
