ZODIAC OF THE MONTH: ARIES
By AKENYA SEYMOUR
Approx. march 21-april 20
As we enter the spring equinox, and the Sun makes its way into Aries, a burst of excitement for life and a sense of adventure are awakened in many. For our feisty little rams, this may bring about a curiosity and thirst for quest. However, their tendency to power-stomp through the journey, horns first, may leave many tasks unfinished, unresolved, and quite frankly unimportant to Aries who is now, undoubtedly, on to the next big escapade.
Being the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries are like babies; constantly looking for unchartered territory to explore, often looking for themselves in the process. Their charisma may help to overshadow their self-centeredness and tendency to throw a temper tantrum if they don’t get their way. But, the fiery charge of Aries can have a warrior like aggression that even the toughest of creatures may have difficulty handling.
Their hyperactive flare for enthusiasm makes them excel particularly in careers such as sports and entertainment, although they are drawn to any field where they can lead the pack. And if Aries is leading, be ready to walk through the fire of the trails they’ll most certainly blaze or you’ll find yourself left behind buried beneath the ashes.
