|Aries is 'I will'
Aries is the awareness of 'self.'
It is the ignition spark of the conscious identity.
Aries' objective is to obtain 'what it wants.'
Its strategy to achieve this is through the power of action and use of 'the will.'
To achieve its desires often means that Aries will have to face hurdles and challenges.
This is where bravery is required and the archetype of the warrior comes to the fore. Aries will always be tested by a 'foe', be it something physical, psychological or emotional. To stand courageous in the face of fear is a huge evolutionary leap for Aries.
Aries needs to be aware of how to choose its battles and not to bulldoze its way through life. Aries needs a healthy outlet for its assertion through competition, physical work and productive challenges to avoid bottling up any feelings. On the flip side the Aries 'will' also works just as noticeably when enforcing things it doesn't want.
Aries is totally 'self – full', meaning to achieve its objective it must develop the qualities of leadership and independence. Aries energy is driven by action, impulse and desire. It has a strong need for challenge and victory. Aries energy is initiating, courageous, headstrong, impulsive, child-like and pioneering.
