With fiery Aries season underway, it’s a great time to consider the ways the current planetary energy is affecting you, and how you can make the most of it to advance your goals and live life positively.

Aries season in the Northern Hemisphere heralds the start of Spring, while in the Southern Hemisphere, it is the beginning of Autumn. Wherever you are in the world, Aries is about new beginnings.

Aries is also the first sign of the zodiac, which means in a way, this is the beginning of a new year astrologically.

Whatever way you look at it, Aries bursts with life, energy, and potential.

It offers all of us a chance to wipe the slate clean and start over. We can move forward at the beginning of this so-called new year with deep wisdom, confidence, and aligned energy to go hard for our goals, leaping past our fears and looking ahead to where our long-term dreams become reality.

Aries is represented by the head of the Ram, which embodies creativity, and new ideas associated with greater fertility and the blossoming of Spring. It’s also ruled by Mars, so we need to be careful with the direction our energy takes, being aware of irritability and confrontation.

There is a palpable shift in energy during this time and it can bring forth ambition, power, and confidence to see things through in action. However, all that fiery energy also needs to be tempered with balance and harmony.

Aries energy that builds up can manifest as headaches and you don’t want to burn out too soon, so make sure that you understand the side of Aries that urges us to be in sync with the creative and magical energies and use them to provide fuel for your dreams, goals, and projects

It is important to note that there are no planets in retrograde, so the energy is very supportive of making progress.

The following self-care tips will help you make the most of all this cosmic energy to build your confidence without burning out.

Activities for Aries Season

With so much energy encouraging you to pursue your goals, you might find your head racing at times as you attempt to focus on what’s most important. Try the following:

Creative Brainstorming

Ideal for those buzzing ideas.

Allow yourself to get everything down on paper, and fill the pages with colorful mind maps or flow charts to help you find focus.

Fast Walking

You might find yourself with extra energy this season, the downside of which can be unchanneled anger or frustration.

The best way to get out of your head and release some of that tension is fast walking, either early in the morning or at the end of the day.

It can really help you get rid of scattered feelings and bring yourself back to what matters.

Fitness and Yoga

There is a balance to be struck here. Those of you who are normally quieter, earthy types might be enjoying all this strong Aries energy and if so, it’s a good time to build your strength physically with new routines.

Try vinyasa yoga, dance, or barre workouts to help you release energy and all that stored tension.

As Aries rules the head, those of you with a propensity for burnout might benefit more from going the opposite way and practicing calming, harmonizing yoga like Hatha or Yin Yoga.

It all depends on how the energy is affecting you personally! So try a few things out first.
