It’s Aries Season, Earthlings, which means Aries energy is strong right now. We’re more Aries at the moment: excited and energetic, taking initiative, and going forward with enthusiasm.

If you’re not an Aries Sun, you still have Aries in the birth chart somewhere (everyone does), and that means this Aries season will set that part of your chart off, triggering whatever it rules and bringing the inner Aries energy out of you.

The Aries Zodiac Sign

The Aries zodiac sign is the very first of the signs, so no surprise, it corresponds to new beginnings, new ventures, new journeys, and everything new. Aries is always ready to start something, always excited by going down a new road.

Aries is a Fire sign, giving it plenty of energy, and a Cardinal sign, helping it to lead. This sign is a great leader and known for a pioneering spirit.

The natural ruling planet for Aries is Mars, the fiery planet itself. Mars helps Aries to get moving, get going, and always feel driven to make things happen. Aries is symbolized by the Ram, forceful and strong.

All of this energy can make the Aries zodiac sign a bit impulsive and impatient, having a hard time slowing things down to think it through first, so this can get Aries into trouble sometimes (or more than sometimes!).

The Impact of Aries in the Birth Chart

If you have a planet in your birth chart in the Aries zodiac sign, that means the planet expresses its energy in an Aries way. You’re more take charge, more energized, more enthusiastic, and more open to new beginnings.

If you don’t have any planets in Aries, you likely still have one of your natal houses in Aries. The house that falls in the Aries zodiac sign shows areas where you take the lead, are more driven and are more excited.

A note: some house systems have uneven houses, which means you may have more than one house falling in Aries, or no houses falling in Aries; when you have no houses falling in Aries in the birth chart, that means Aries is within the house that falls in Pisces.

When the transit Sun moves through Aries like it is now, this impacts the Aries parts of your natal chart. You may focus on a new beginning, have greater energy and enthusiasm, and want to take charge with whatever that part of your chart rules.

So, where do you have energy, enthusiasm, and take the lead? First, look at any of your natal planets in Aries.

Sun & Moon in Aries

If you have your Sun or Moon in Aries, you can express the Aries energy the most (unless it’s in the 12th house, anyway!). You’re someone who naturally takes the lead or that others look to as a leader, who is easily excitable and enthusiastic, and who loves a new venture.

Mercury in Aries

If your natal Mercury is in Aries, you can be energetic in your speech and expression. You may talk fast, think fast, and get frustrated by anything slow because your mind has already moved on to the next new thing.

Venus in Aries

If your natal Venus is in Aries, you can take the lead in love and relationships and may like to be the chaser (instead of the one being chased). You may seem attractive to others with your energy and enthusiasm.

Mars in Aries

If your natal Mars is in Aries, this puts Mars at home, so you can be very comfortable with taking the lead, using your energy and drive, and starting anew. You may be a strong personality and push for what you want.

Jupiter in Aries

If your natal Jupiter is in Aries, you can enjoy new beginnings and benefit from making your own opportunities, being independent, and going down new paths. You can enjoy being a leader and pursuing what you want for yourself.

Saturn in Aries

If your natal Saturn is in Aries, you can struggle with the Aries energy, feeling uncomfortable with being a leader, new beginnings, or using your energy and drive. There are likely lessons you need to learn first before you can access the Aries energy, but you can be a strong leader once you do.

Uranus in Aries

We just came out of Uranus in Aries recently, so the very young among us have Uranus in Aries. They’ll grow up to be pioneering rebels, independent thinkers and embrace unconventional new ways of doing things (good luck to your parents when they’re teenagers!).

Neptune & Pluto in Aries

It’s been a very long time since Neptune and Pluto were in Aries, so unless you’re a vampire, you don’t have this!

Neptune will go into Aries in a few years (Pluto not for a while). Still, anyone who has Neptune in Aries can be spiritually independent, while anyone with Pluto in Aries can be a transformative rebel.

Chiron in Aries

We’re experiencing this one now!

Chiron in Aries shows you’re someone who can take charge with your own healing and growth and can be more open to healing and growth than others because you prefer to focus on the good and embark on new journeys in life.

Aries in the Birth Chart: Houses

If you have no planets in Aries, you’re going to focus on letting out your Aries energy via your Aries house. If you don’t have any Aries houses, look to your Pisces house (Aries is within it), but know the Aries energy there may operate subconsciously:

Aries in the 1st House

If your 1st house is in Aries, you have an Aries Rising, which means you come across as an Aries. People may see you as a leader, and you may display your excitement and enthusiasm outwardly.

You may seem very high energy.

Aries in the 2nd House

If your 2nd house is in Aries, you can take charge financially and make money quickly and spend it quickly (don’t let it burn a hole in your pocket!). You can also be independent and free-thinking with your values.

Aries in the 3rd House

If your 3rd house is in Aries, you can keep yourself quite busy and may need a lot to do, so you’re always using up your mental energy. You can be engaging with others and active in your community.

Learning for you may happen quickly, or you may get bored easily.

Aries in the 4th House

If your 4th house is in Aries, you may be the leader with your family, or you may be independent of them. You likely don’t like people who are too clingy and prefer to be emotionally independent.

You may need a home that gives you lots of flexibility.

Aries in the 5th House

If your 5th house is in Aries, you can be very creative and give a lot of your energy to your hobbies. Joy and love can be important to you, and you can be enthusiastic about love, the people you love, and the pursuit of love.

Aries in the 6th House

If your 6th house is in Aries, you may need to work independently, on your own, and can have lots of energy and enthusiasm for your work. You likely need some room in your daily life to do what you want.

Exercise can be important for your overall health and well-being.

Aries in the 9th House

If your 9th house is in Aries, you can be enthusiastic about expanding your life in new ways and pursuing new opportunities. You may enjoy traveling on your own, and you can pursue learning independently.

Aries in the 10th House

If your 10th house is in Aries, you can pursue your goals on your own and may work best as your own boss, so you may pursue a career you can work on your own. You can also be a natural leader, though, so you can also do something that allows you to lead (basically, nothing where you have a boss!).

Aries in the 11th House

If your 11th house is in Aries, you can opt for friends that are independent and energetic. Your dreams can be of new beginnings and have you blazing a new trail for others, and you can see this as having a positive impact on the world.

Aries in the 12th House

If your 12th house is in Aries, you may only show your Aries energy when you’re alone or with those you’re very comfortable with. You may seem quiet and subdued on the surface, but behind the scenes, you can be high energy and have lots of enthusiasm.

Everyone Has a Bit of Aries!

Everyone has some Aries inside of them, which can become more apparent during Aries season when it gets triggered for each of us. Start grasping your Aries energy now!
