It’s Aries season!
(Well – actually, we’re in the last quarter of Aries season and I’m a little – well a LOT late with this post but I promise to do better in future!)
I am not an Aries, but this is one of my favourite astrological seasons.
What about you?
Do you often feel inspired around this time of year? Are you ready to smash your goals, start that side-hustle, get that summer body?
If you answered yes – that’s because you are feeling the Aries energy. That is the true spirit of this season.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, the ‘baby’, represented by the Ram. It governs the first house in astrology charts. It marks the spring equinox and start of a new astrological year.
How to use Aries energy
This is FRESH energy.
The weather warms up, crops start to sprout as the earth begins to recover from the harsh chill of winter.
Everything is brighter, lighter, vibrant.
Aries season is the perfect time to make your vision boards and start thinking about what you want for the year ahead.
This is the time to visualise. This is the time to start the new job, the new relationship, the new endeavor.
New, new, new. Aries energy is exciting!
Not everyone is comfortable with this kind of energy, and this energy isn’t always comfortable. But that’s why things happen in Aries season. It’s about pushing yourself, venturing out of your comfort zone. Tapping into that inner confidence.
So get going! When the sun visits the first sign of the zodiac, actions of initiation perfectly match the energy it shines upon us.
Now, I know it might be hard for everyone to feel this energy at the moment, while we’re all on lockdown.
The uncertainty is scary for everybody. Most of us have never seen our world like this before, and we don’t know what to expect.
But we can still use this energy. Forward thinking is the best type of thinking for the season we are in.
If you can, think about how you can take advantage of this time.
Can you step up your home workouts?
Can you finally get started on that book, or that blog, or that business idea?
Can you find a new hobby or interest to explore?
Can you learn a new language or skill?
Or can you get that much-needed, relaxation time that you never seem to get when you’re always on the go? How can you make this bleak time a little brighter? Where can you inject this Aries energy into your life right now?
I haven’t written a blog post in almost a year. I haven’t written anything for that matter – in a really long time. A month ago, if you told me that I’d be sitting here, writing again, with fire in my belly and so many ideas for this blog and my future I wouldn’t have believed you.
This is what Aries energy does. It hits you hard and the best thing you can do is roll with it. Take the flashes of inspiration and do something with them. This is the perfect time!
Things to watch out for
Aries is honest.
Now is the perfect time to speak your truth, but be careful.
Be straightforward. Aries energy doesn’t like beating around the bush or concealing information.
Be vulnerable. Ask for what you want.
Keep results at the forefront of your mind with everything you do. Aries is impulsive energy.
But make time for mindfulness too. You may feel pulled to make hasty decisions this month, so those quiet moments are crucial for you. They’ll help you to evaluate things and make sure the moves you’re making are the best ones for you.
Ritual for Aries season
Welcome in (or usher out! As I’m so late – oops!) this Aries energy by making time for a short meditation/visualisation session. Light up a candle or three. Aries is a fire sign, so embrace those flames!
Sit or lie down, however you feel super comfortable.
Take ten slow, deep and cleansing breaths. As you breathe in, imagine the breath going in through your nose, down your throat, travelling down further to a yellow ball of light, glowing and filling up your stomach area.
As the breath meets this ball it glows brighter and expands.
This is where your solar plexus chakra is located. This chakra represents confidence, will power, taking action. Think about the areas of your life where you could exert confidence. Think about where you could exert will power. Think about where you could take action.
Start to think about what you want to manifest this year. Visualise the things you want, or mentally list them off.
And with that yellow light still glowing brightly in your stomach area, with that Aries fire burning in your belly, recite the mantra:
I AM STRONG.
Repeat it ten times.
