Do you know anyone who is fearlessly outspoken, stubborn, and a deep thinker? Chances are, this person is an Aries. If you were born between March 20 – April 21, you are an Aries. Even if you were born at a different time of the year, the sign of Aries beckons all of us to be more confident and break free from whatever has been holding us back.


Aries are action-oriented. They are go-getters who do not sit around and wait for things to happen, but rather they take action to make things happen.

When an Aries is passionate about something, nothing will get in the way of their courage and pursuit of what matters to them. Often at the forefront, Aries are natural leaders and shine when in this position.

On the flip-side, Aries can be bossy, arrogant and selfish, stubborn, opinionated, and impulsive. Because their desire for excitement and new endeavors, oftentimes Aries can’t concentrate on projects for long. You may notice they abandon projects mid-way, in search of yet another challenge. 

Now is the Time to Embrace Change

If you are not an Aries, you may shy away from change in favor of more stability and predictability. However, now is a great time to embark on new endeavors or projects and trust your intuition. This is a season of increased confidence and owning who you are. For some people, this is a push out of their in-the-shadows comfort zone. But the season of Aries is all about taking risks and claiming your place in the spotlight.

What does all this mean? Perhaps you’ve been waiting to take a risk and reach for a better position or ask for a raise; now is the time. Maybe you need to channel your inner boldness and speak up about an issue that you care about. Embrace your creativity and turn from the fear and speak your mind. Acknowledge the value and importance of your ideas and put them into practice.
