If you’ve been feeling lethargic from spending much of Pisces season inside your heads and with your emotions, the coming of Aries season, which starts on March 20, might shake you out of your slumber. Think of the natural trailblazer as your confident bestie who hypes you up and pushes you to take risks. And since Aries officially kicks off the zodiacal year—AKA spring equinox in astrology—plan for exciting new beginnings and novel experiences. While the bold fire sign is all about the thrill and going after what you want, Aries season is also a powerful time for self-reflection and boosting your self-esteem.
Welcome To Aries Season!
As the first zodiac sign in the wheel, Aries is gutsy, impulsive, and eager to get things done. They’re fire signs, after all, and they’re known for being as confident as they are courageous. But for Aries people (who love to take things too far, BTW), they have no problem rocking the boat if the mood calls for it. They’re competitive, always looking for ways to push themselves to be the best and achieve all there is to achieve.
If their brashness and fearlessness doesn’t intimidate you, Aries zodiac signs will find a different way. They’re ruled by Mars, the planet of action, sex, and impulses. In Roman mythology, Mars is associated with the god of war, making Aries a symbol of bravery and aggression. Likewise, expect Aries season to empower your inner sex goddess, push the limits in your life, and stoke your rambunctious curiosity.
While Aries zodiac signs often have a low anger threshold, they know how to bet on themselves and show up as their best version. That’s probably because they’re associated with the first house of the self, which rules everything from your physical appearance to how you express yourself to others, so when the sun travels through the first house, these themes come into focus. That said, take Aries season as a way to experiment with new looks and reflect on your self-development.
Aries season marks the arrival of the spring equinox on March 20, which heralds in a fresh start. It’s a time for reinvention, whether it’s debuting a drastically different haircut, revamping your wardrobe, or starting a totally new life. Review the resolutions you set for the new year, set intentions, and focus on bringing these goals into focus — so when the new moon in Aries arrives on March 21, you’ll be ready. After all, Aries season is all about charging into your ideal life with brute force.
Things may slow down by March 25 as Mars, Aries’ combative ruling planet, enters tenderhearted Cancer. This transit softens our impulses and aggression, bringing compassion into confrontations that may come your way this season. While this season is about taking charge, it’s a powerful moment to learn how to lead with empathy. The planet of communication and mindset, moves into diligent and practical Taurus on April 3, helping us balance our big dreams and ideas with the fortitude to put in the work.
The full moon in lavish Libra on April 5 permits the collective to find balance, indulge in the finer things, and revel in their social life. This is a great time for manifesting and diving into your self-care rituals. Once the love planet Venus enters charming Gemini on April 10, it’s bringing your attention to your community and relationships (friends to lover trope, anyone?). With Aries boosting your confidence, new and exciting partnerships may blossom. But be cautious of your energy and where you’re putting it when the new moon solar eclipse in Aries on April 19 arrives. This intense lunation may cause whirlwinds in your close relationships, but it’s a great time to shed parts of yourself that you’ve outgrown to make room for the person you want to be.
