Aries Season 2021: Igniting the Spark

On March 20, 05:38 AM ET, Aries season 2021 begins. The Sun entering the sign of the Ram inaugurates the New Astrological Year.

The March Equinox represents the start of Spring in the Northern part of the globe, and the beginning of Fall in the Southern Hemisphere. While for some of us from now on days get longer and warmer, inviting action, extroversion, and opening, for others, as colder temperatures begin to be felt, the natural drive is to turn within and spend more time indoors. 

Nonetheless, we are all experiencing a transition, we are all feeling the shift: as a Cardinal archetype, Aries begins a new season, a new chapter, an unfamiliar process. The ingress of the Sun in Aries represents a fresh start for everyone on the planet and sets the tone for the year ahead.


Aries: Igniting the Spark


Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac wheel, represents the spark that makes life possible. Aries is the pioneer opening a new path, the leader who is not afraid to do something alone, the warrior who fights for what they believe in.

Traditionally, the Sun is considered in its exaltation in Aries: this means that its yearly journey through the sign of the Ram is a favorable moment for our energy levels, our vitality, our stamina, and our self-confidence. After the emotional intensity and increased sensitivity we experienced during Pisces season, Aries season is likely to uplift our mood and our overall state of being.

Aries is pure instinct, impulse, and desire. Ruled by Mars, the God of War, this sign is all about direct action, forward movement, and moment-to-moment exploration of our urges. A Yang, Fire archetype, Aries requires freedom and lives in the present moment, where life is happening, and learns as it goes, through an experiential process of trial and error. 


Aries: Separation and Individuality


Aries represents the birth of individual consciousness. While through Pisces, correlated to our time in the womb, we experience oneness, union, and non-duality, Aries symbolizes the moment when we cut the umbilical cord, and we are physically separated from our mother.

Being a Cardinal sign, there is an inherent insecurity in the Aries archetype: it is beginning a new process, taking a path nobody else has taken before. This can generate a dynamic of two steps forward, one step back: in this phase, we are separating from something familiar and known, and we don’t have a clear sense of the best way to progress.

Aries corresponds to being in a continual state of becoming: this sign reminds us that that life isn’t static. Aries needs independence and freedom to be able to follow its desires. Rage and fear of entrapment, shadows of this sign, may emerge as a result of the feeling of having our capacity to act spontaneously thwarted or restricted.


Aries season 2021: Transits and Lunations


On March 21, Venus will enter Aries too, and Mercury will do so on April 4, increasing the prominence of the Fire element in the heavens. On March 26, Venus will conjoin the Sun marking the beginning of a new Venus cycle and bringing emphasis on the relationship we have with ourselves and our personal self-discovery journey.

The Full Moon in Libra coming up on March 28 happens on an extremely charged day, as Mars will be conjunct the North Node, while both the Sun and Venus will be conjunct Chiron. As we are invited to assert ourselves and our desires, our wounds related to our right to exist and express ourselves may be triggered in the context of our relationships. The Full Moon will be forming a supportive Grand Air trine with Saturn in Aquarius, and Mars and the North Node in Gemini, which will aid the mental and intellectual integration of the emotions and feelings coming up.

Between the end of March and the first days of April, the Sun in Aries will form sextiles to both Saturn in Aquarius and the North Node in Gemini. This configuration is offering us opportunities to find a creative balance between our drive to self-actualize and our need to take care of our duties and responsibilities. These aspects are supporting our maturation process and our movement towards our evolutionary direction.

The New Moon in Aries happening on April 12 will form a square to Pluto in Capricorn. The Sun-Pluto square will be active for the entire week, bringing our attention to control and power dynamics that are limiting our freedom, our capacity to act spontaneously, to express ourselves, and follow our urges. This aspect symbolizes a clash between individual will and the pressure coming from authority figures, and it shines a light on any internalized societal and cultural conditioning that is holding us back from fully embodying and expressing our individuality.

The simultaneous sextiles taking place between the Sun, Mars, and Jupiter reflect an increased capacity to respond proactively to any challenge we may encounter. These alignments inspire us to take constructive action and to gravitate toward choices and experiences that increase our self-confidence by enriching our knowledge and our understanding of life.


Aries season 2021: a Time to be Courageous


Mars, ruler of Aries, will be in Gemini for the entire Aries season. Its influence will increase our mental energy, our curiosity, our willingness and our desire to learn. We are likely to feel more prone to communicate, exchange opinions and perspectives, share and accumulate information and data. During this time, it is important to be mindful of truly listening to what others have to say, and count to ten before overreacting impulsively to whatever triggers us. Mars square Mercury could bring some tension in these realms

Overall, the transit of the Sun through the sign of the Warrior is a positive period for our energy levels: the upcoming weeks are favorable for our creativity and support the beginning of new projects and endeavors. Aries season invites us to be courageous, to initiate, to start walking the path, even if we aren’t sure about how everything is going to turn out. We are encouraged to trust our instinct and desires, to detach from old comfort zones, and to make choices that allow us to move forward in our self-discovery journey.

Aries Season March 20th – April 20th

On March 20 at 3:49am the Sun Shifts into the Constellation of Aries. Welcome to the Aries Season!

What is Aries Season?


The Sun spends 30 days in each of the Zodiac signs, from March 20 until April 20th the Sun will be transiting Aries. We can call this Aries Season.

The Sun represents our conscious awareness. We can imagine that this solar energy is like a big spotlight shining on an area of our psyche. The themes associated with Aries energy are highlighted and brought to the surface during these times. If we were born during Aries Season or have other personal planets in Aries we may feel this in a heightened way. However, in this article we are looking at Aries Season through a collective lens which means regardless of whether or not you are an “Aries” this is still relevant information.


Aries Season is the Start of the Zodiac Year


Aries Season is the beginning of a new astrological year. Although we celebrated a new calendar year in January, now is a time when things really start to feel new. Up until now we may have felt as though there was a thick fog or sleepy energy around us. We may have felt as though we are tying up loose ends or focusing on conclusions.

As the Sun shifts into Aries we are invited to start fresh. We are asked to leave the past behind and move forward with an open heart. This takes courage. Aries season is not for the faint of heart. We are asked to be brave and move forward in new ways that may be unbeknown to us.

Aries is the Spark


Aries energy is the spark that starts the fire. It’s vulnerable to be the first flame, however if we tend to the fire and kindle it we know the energy can grow. This is a time of taking care of ourselves and listening to our needs. This energy is passionate, warm and exciting. It’s thrilling and gains momentum quickly.

Things in our lives may start to take off. Things may start to come together and we may experience a snowball effect of our actions. This is awesome! However, it’s very important to remain grounded and not allow ourselves to get attached from an ego driven place. Even if things are working really well, our best bet is to stay neutral and open.

Conversely, if things are not working out for us, trying hard to force our agendas will leave us frustrated. If we are faced with a brick wall our best bet is to take a rest or try an alternate route. It’s not wise to attempt to break down that wall. Although Aries energy is very associated with action, it’s key to remember sometimes the best thing to do is rest and release. 


Aries Season, Embrace the Trailblazer Within


Since this is just the start of the new zodiac calendar it’s important not give into any sense of urgency. There is no need to rush and if we feel like we are behind, remember there’s a whole year ahead of us. Aries is the trailblazer and while it may feel like it wants to sprint to the finish line, conserving our energy is what can help us to win the race. 

Aries is on the front lines of creation. This means we are being asked to envision where we want to go, or what we want to create. It’s a good time to sit at the drawing board and catch hold of a vision. It’s a time of feeding the fire of creation that exists within each of us. Starting fresh can feel overwhelming at times which is why it’s important to remember life is not just a sprint.


Aries Season: A Cracking Open


Imagine we are a little chicken hatching from an egg. The egg has cracked open and we find ourselves looking out at a whole new world. This is very much the energy of Aries Season. We know it is not an option to collect the broken egg shells and try to rebuild the egg. Instead, we have to move away from the shell’s security and boldly step into the world.

We are being asked to show up. To stand up. To speak up. This can really set us off. It’s a challenge to feel confident and we are working to heal on many levels.


Chiron in Aries


The asteroid, Chiron, is in Aries from 2019 until 2027. Chiron represents the wounded healer. It’s our personal healing journeys. Each of us is on our own path, with our own wounds. It’s not that we are broken but we are asked to become aware of our soft spots. As the Sun’s light moves through Aries it will illuminate the energy of Chiron. Our wounds are coming to the forefront in order for us to heal.

Now imagine we have a cut on our hand. We do not need to know the science behind our skin in order for it to heal. Our bodies naturally heal. Our skin knows what to do. Our job is solely to keep the wound clean and let nature do the healing.


Chiron in Aries Throughout History


It’s safe to say we are living in extraordinary times. It feels like everything is up in the air and nothing is certain. There’s a collective sense of not-knowing and while we can’t pinpoint what exactly is going to happen and when, we can take a look back at these cycles throughout history.

Looking back can help us to move forward with wisdom. Instead of history repeating itself, we can expand our awareness and break the patterns. Chiron was in Aries 1918-1926; let’s take a look at some of the happenings from that age.

The Spanish flu pandemic occurred in 1918 and 1919. This time period also saw the end of World War 1. The roaring 20’s came into effect which led to economic growth and widespread prosperity. This decade was a time of individuals expressing themselves and acting in ways the generations before them had not. This was a time of celebration and living life in the moment.

Of course at this point in time, with what is happening in the world, it is easy to fall into despair. We are facing unprecedented times and the economic impact of current events is a very real threat for many. Like the generation of the Jazz Age, it’s important to embrace our sense of individuality and creative expression. It’s time to do things differently and challenge pre-existing societal norms.

It’s time to become those trailblazers. It’s time to carve out a new path for ourselves and the generations who will come after us. 

Like the beginning of Chiron’s transit in Aries transit back in 1918, we are facing another pandemic. The key of Aries is to remember our own potential and personal power. Of course, we must acknowledge how our actions impact others. However, at times when we feel hopeless and pulled into collective despair, let’s remember what it means to be an individual. 


Chiron in Aries: Reclaim Individuality


Individuality is the cornerstone of transformation. If we don’t look in the mirrors and reclaim our Selves, we can never move forward in a world that works hard to tell us who we should or shouldn’t be. Chiron in Aries is that reclamation of individuality. 

We can look back to the 1969 and once again see Chiron transiting Aries. During this cycle we see war, this time the Vietnam war. We can see masses of people standing up demanding change in the form of the civil rights movement. We witnessed Woodstock that brought thousands together in the name of a counter culture.

The birth of a new counter culture is the theme of Chiron in Aries, which we are experiencing now until 2027. Throughout Aries Season the Sun will be illuminating this transit. When everything we know is changing what other choice do we have? This is about owning who we are as individuals, creating and sharing that sense of self with the world.


It Takes Courage


This is a season where some tender wounds could emerge. There will be times for us to play an active role in our healing and other times when it’s okay to just let it be. Both action and inaction takes courage. This Aries Season the more we can give ourselves room to breath, the stronger we will be.
