We begin the astrological New year when the Sun moves into the sign of Aries March 20, 2023, which also marks the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. This time is also referred to as Aries season-which lasts through April 20, 2023. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and launches a new year long cycle, signifying a fresh start and new beginnings for all zodiac signs.
Happy Birthday Aries!
Aries is a cardinal fire sign, and its energy is associated with action, courage, primal desire, impulsiveness, aggression and determination. Through out the month, this energy is particularly strong for everyone. However, those born under an Aries Sun, Aries Moon or rising work with this archetype always. Aries infused folks often appear to have a bold, fiery, confident nature. They can be natural leaders, competitive, highly ambitious, strong willed driven and passionate about their goals. They are also known as generous, inspiring, fearless, pioneering, and determined risk takers.
Aries season activates the Aries energies for all, making it a powerful time to set intentions and plant seeds for the upcoming year. It's a time to utilize what was learned in the previous year and to make a plan for how to move forward. This energy is particularly potent this year during the first few day of the month as the Aries New Moon occurs on the 21st-which also intensifies the energy of your intentions and wishes for the upcoming year.
This is a month of renewal, new beginnings, energy, and action. With Jupiter, the planet of opportunity and expansion still in Aries, there is extra increased energy available for new adventures and experiences. If you're looking to make the most of this time of year, here are some things to do during Aries season:
Spend time in nature
There's nothing quite like spending time in nature to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. Now with the sunlight hours increasing, nature calls. Whether you take a walk in the park, hike in the mountains, or simply sit outside and soak up some sun, being in the great outdoors can help you feel more connected to yourself and the world around you.
Plant or Plan a Garden
Depending on circumstances and preferences, you may be or wanna be a gardener. Growing season begins at different times based on where you live, and regardless of your climate, it may not be too early to plant some starters indoors. Growing your own food or herbs can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience that allows you to connect with nature and provides a special kind of stress relief (that you can only get from having your hands in the dirt and tending to the plant kingdom). If you don’t have the space for a traditional outdoor garden, many food producing plants do well in pots. Community gardens, or volunteering at local farms are great options as well.
Exercise and move your body
Aries is a fire sign, so use that energy to get active and move your body. Your body was made to move and good things come to those who sweat. This is a New Year. Why not try a new workout, sign up for a yoga class or dance, dance, dance!
Aries energy is all about taking risks and trying new things, so step out of your comfort zone and take a chance on something you've been wanting to do. Use the fiery energy to start a new project or creative endeavor. Aries is a natural leader, so take on a leadership role in your personal or professional life. Embrace your inner warrior and stand up for what you believe in. Dare greatly and use this season to try something exciting.
Do a Spring Cleanse
It’s not unusual to feel stagnation or congestion in your body after a long cold winter. This is the perfect time to rejuvenate your organs with a detoxifying diet or at least increasing your consumption of green foods. If you don’t want to change up your diet, consider cleaning out a room in your house or clearing out old emails. There are many ways to cleanse, and Aries is all about you doing it your way!
Set a goal for this month and while you’re at it, make another for the year
Having something to work towards can be incredibly motivating and energizing. Set some goals for yourself, whether they're personal or professional, and take steps towards achieving them. When you have a direction and purpose, it can help you take advantage of the focused drive that Aries wants to deliver.
Take care of yourself
Aries energy can be intense, so make sure to focus on self-care and take time to relax and recharge. Self-care is essential for maintaining your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. When you prioritize your own needs, you'll have more energy and enthusiasm for the things that matter to you.
Shake up your routine
It may be time to shake up your routine. Try doing something out of the ordinary, whether it's taking a different route to work, changing up your wardrobe, or trying a new recipe for dinner. When you break out of your usual patterns, you are inviting new possibilities and experiences.
If you're struggling to come up with ideas for how to change things up, seek inspiration from others. Talk to friends, read books or articles, or listen to podcasts that explore new ideas and experiences. Aries season is a great time to learn something new. Whether it's a new language, new skill or a new hobby, follow your inspired curiosity. As Rumi said “What you seek is seeking you”.
