Your desire for beauty and harmony is present in your natural relationship to the arts, aesthetics and justice and is imbued in your deep interpersonal awareness. Your can be highly aware of others, of their wants and needs. You are the first sign in the Zodiac to be focussed towards other people and you may have learnt as a child how to adapt yourself to other people, to be the peace keeper. Part of your identity formation comes through having yourself mirrored back to you in other people, ‘let me see my life through your eyes’. It is this aspect that draws you to relationships, you learn so much through your experiences with people.
Part of the balancing act for you, as an adult, is to ensure that you have an awareness of this adaptive aspect. You are highly attuned to balancing the scales with others and it is important that you check in, regularly, to see if you are operating in line with your wants and needs and able to maintain your own equilibrium. As you are so aware of the social and interpersonal equilibrium, this balance is in assessing if your emotions and moods and even your sense of worth and value can be maintained around others, regardless of how the other is or if your balance is thrown off by your environment.
One of the by-products of desiring and seeking harmony can be to avoid confrontation. And part of your journey is in developing an awareness of the things that would bring you long term and greater harmony and then acting on them, even if that means some uncomfortable conversations in the short term. Here’s a mundane example to illustrate, faking orgasms doesn’t serve you or your partner(s) long term!
Knowing what you want and being able to communicate it are key ingredients for the health and development of your sign.
Venus, your ruling planet, governs values and it is recommended that you list out what your values are, what are you willing to compromise on and what are you not. Observe how you do or do not maintain your energy and boundaries when you are around other people.
And what of your refined aesthetic lens? It’s a gift. Do not disregard the power of beauty in your life, embrace it. Plato theorised that the physical beauty of the Goddess Venus existed to raise the thoughts of those who gazed upon her, as If beauty was a doorway to the spiritual realms.
Study the Aries people in your life. Observe how they go about meeting their needs. Tap into this primal force within you. Find safety in owning your wants, needs and desires. Observe how the Aries archetype gets what it wants by knowing it and stating it. You can do this to. In fact, it’s a big part of your journey here, to feel safety and worthiness of meeting and having your own needs, wants and desires met.
