An Aries woman finds an Aries city!
I am an Aries. A girl-ram who likes hanging with my flock, driving red cars that have angry sounding exhausts and loud stereos. I love my eyebrows defined with a horn like up-kick to them, hell I even have horns. Yes true, my skull is not oval, I have these pointy bits in line with my ears that jut out at the top of my head. You have to feel them. They’re surreal, but not, because they are real — a lot like LA.
When I left Oz for LA LA, I wrote a farewell email to a work colleague saying “I’m off to Los Angeles, and I’m hoping to find a place so crazy, I feel sane.” and now I’m here I do feel sane. But not because of LA’s craziness more because of LA’s Aries-ness. In this city, I am not alone. I am amongst a sea of kindred sheep who’ve flocked here in the hope of their dreams coming true. Active dreamers. LA is bold and flashy and people accuse it of being false. Or brash. As an Aries woman, I can relate!

But how can a someone who brags saying their Botox Doc is the best in town be false? If they said, “Oh Botox? No! I’m lucky I have good genes” now that’d be false. This is the thing with LA. It doesn’t pretend. People come here chasing a dream and those that don’t make it have to ask themselves how hard they wanted it in the first place. Dream chasing can be rough going. But when the going gets tough, think like a ram. Put your head down and charge.
On my first night in this city, I sat looking out over the velvet black at the sprinkling of city lights that shone like precious gems, and I asked, “LA what have you got for me? Do I have what it takes?” LA replied, “I don’t know, give it your best shot. I’m here – what more do you want from me?” And I realized at that moment that LA brings nothing to no-one. LA is the stage, and her props department is well stocked, but anyone who comes here must be prepared to write their script.
LA is Aries. Bold, open and non-judgemental.
