This is the fifth year that Chiron – the wounded healer – has been affecting your sign. This energy has been working to evolve the ways that you express and experience your Aries Sun; are you using your willpower – one of the Aries golden keys – intentionally and directionally? Or are you at the whim of every impulse that breezes through you? With the celestial movements this year, you will really see some evidence of how this evolution of your solar archetype is going.
2023 begins with Jupiter having just moved back into your sign, meaning that you start the year on higher ground, a vantage point from which to observe the dreams, desires and possibilities that call to you like sirens under the moonlight. From this position, life feels bigger. This Jupiterian perspective is like putting on a new lens and sensing all the possibilities that have been lying dormant in your field, waiting for you to activate them. When Jupiter moves into Taurus in mid-May (where it will stay for the next year), you will really become aware, experientially, of how worthy you feel of taking action and crafting your desires into reality.
Begin the year by allowing yourself to cast out wide visions – are you playing life at the level you truly desire to experience it? Hone in on your desires, your wants and needs, and sharpen the arrow of your intentional willpower. Cast your visions, make your plans and contemplate how you can use your innate fire as a slow burn with some of these visions. Not everything requires a sprint. As May rolls around, deeply observe how worthy you feel of your desires. This is playing out in your second house, so you will likely experience practical examples of your self-worth and value through testing the ground of relationships and finances. Practically show yourself that you back yourself. And, if you don’t, get curious as to why not? This isn’t about bombastic confidence; this is about searching out and feeling into the deep anchor points of your worthiness.
Why do you want the things that you want? What is the long-range motivation here? And, how do your desires and directions of choice align with your values?
The North Node moves into your sign in July, bringing with it a partial lunar eclipse and full Moon in Aries on 29 October. This move is strong, astrologically, and points you and the rest of us in the collective towards the energetic healing balm that lies in the highest expressions of your sign; the intentional use of your willpower, knowing your wants, needs and desires and using the initiating energy of your sign to birth said desires into existence. We are all being called towards sensing for ourselves – which you so naturally do instinctually – what it is that we want and then directly expressing that desire.
If you find that you still burn up with each passing impulse and burn out quickly, moving onto the next thing, I recommend you get very curious about your desires. Are they linked to your values? Are they your desires or inherited? Or absorbed from the data you are taking in? What is it that makes you burn your brightest?
