Evolutionary needs, strategies, and motivation: Aries energy is courageous and seeks adventure. It is your life force, survival instinct, and inspires tremendous willpower, vitality, enthusiasm, and independence. Aries provides the strength to make changes in your life, overcome obstacles, and face stress or fear.
Aries energy in motion: Aries is associated with the Vernal Equinox and the spring season. Like spring, it inspires new beginnings. Aries gives you the courage to attain your dream. It ignites the fierceness to stand up for what you believe in and guides you as you walk along “the Warrior’s path.” You will feel Aries energy arise when you are assertive and willing to take a risk. This rise in energy helps you initiate new projects or courses of action. Aries calls you to embody your power with passion and provides the drive toward being the best that you could be. In turn, by engaging your drive to succeed, you gain confidence and progress on your path. The Arian evolutionary strategy for growth calls for selecting challenges that serve your soul evolution. Listen to your heart and think before pushing forward. Once you have clarified the mountain to climb, pursue it!
