Aries, you have come here with a set of raw and primal materials; a strong will, determination, and the ability to know what you want. You also know how to take action in the world and move towards what you want. That’s force.
Part of your journey is in learning to refine and mature these raw materials, in being able to channel, direct and refine your strong will and determination, otherwise, you can get busy chasing instant gratifications and following impulses or wanting to be the winner, missing the longer and more rewarding challenges that lay beyond the immediate one’s.
Learn the difference between your impulses and your strong instincts. If Aries energy steers too much towards impulse, the action it takes can come off as brash. Whereas your instincts are part of your deeper knowing, it’s a magnetic pull in line with your desire nature.
Your archetype has come here to get things done. What are the strategies that you use to bith the world you envision for yourself? The key to your magic is in aligning your instinctual fire and force with a clear vision. Part of that clear vision comes from clarity around your wants, needs and desires. These three keys are elements for you to regularly check in on, is this goal or decision in line with my desires? Naturally, they evolve with you and it would be beneficial to seasonally write these out and feel into whether they still hold a vital charge for you or not.
Your sign is associated with warrior archetypes as you come to life when a new challenge or desire presents itself. This is what makes you so skilled in the art of manifesting your reality, you see the thing and you (in the higher expression) cleanly and clearly set about making it yours. It is worth conceptualising this aspect of your sign. Harness that warrior archetype and allow it to mature, it isn’t about fighting fire with fire, think of it as the martial artist as opposed to the blood thirsty war lord. One has grace and selfhood, the other is fierce yet misaligned. One is self-contained, the other is leaky and temperamental and wants to win at all costs.
You have the capacity for being a direct communicator, visualise how it is that you want to convey your force of will. Like the bull in the porcelain store or like the graceful, strong martial artist? You can feel how differently those two will land with an audience.
THE HEALING BALM
