..I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

I have always loved this post and come back to it when I feel like I need to sink more deeply into myself.

Saggy moon

I have been reading about my Aries Venus Star Point and realising how my Aries nature is so much more a part of me than I ever consciously understood! I have Aries on my DC and tend to connect easily with Aries types but now I am beginning to grok my inner Aries and I LOVE it! Great post Mystic <3

dizzarina

This Ram thanks you for the inspiring post, Mystic!

I didn’t know Kurosawa was an Aries. He’s in the upper echelon of my personal pantheon.

Leo-Scorp Grrrl

Love Aries energy and enthusiasm! The inspirations are great. Thankful for the Aries peeps in my life. They are the few who give me pep talks. (I’m usually doing the pepping up of someone else) Nothing like having an haute Aries on your team!

Jokerman

At the start of the AFL season (Mar/Apr) l was watchn a game where the 3 best players, in the game, were having their bday that week. The commentator said there must be somethn about this time of year……no kiddn. I love sport (all groan in unison) and l think it must be my Mars Pluto Cj, Sun in da 1H and my Aries SN. My Katness comes out in the fact l have always been a defender or a goalkeeper. How unKat like, in fact, the only water sport l like is water polo. I am as graceless swimmer… Read more »

Sam

of course you’re a defender. those crab claws are good for some things. stand in front of the cave and fend.

strong mars signature is sporty / combat oriented i hear.

Electro

My brother was an Aries rising. All caution to the wind. One night, I was working on a paper and he comes busting in, blood all over his face. Drinking and sledding in the dark, ran into a brick wall. Cleaned up the blood and went back out. Not the haute like the examples above, but authentic and I miss him.

sphinx

*hugs* (I miss mine too).

Electro

Thanks Sphinx, big hug back.

LiberatingVenus

Oh Rams…! I adore the haute ones – my closest and most trusted confidant is a Black Sheep; an Aries Sun, Scorpio Rising. I admire Aries’ courage, decisiveness, physical prowess, and complete inability to be daunted by anything. They’ll also try just about anything once. But as a Libran, OTOH I must confess that I find lower Aries energy quite maddening, TBH. I have a healthy relationship w/ my own Mars, so it’s not as if Mars energy is something totally foreign to me because I’m too girly and prissy to understand it. It’s just that few things abrade me… Read more »

I used to- used to- have 2 female Aries besties, & those women would just do damn near anything. For better or worse. *Drama.* But I miss those assholes sometimes. Ha

sphinx

Short Bloodstone story – a distant relative went to Africa and was bitten by a snake. There was no medical help but the local shaman who used a bloodstone to draw out the venom. She survived and has a healthy respect for cleansing power of crystals and bloodstone after that, while of course simultaneously almost disbelieving of her own experience. Bloodstone is of course considered a great blood purifier and is all about root chakra motion and vitality and power. SO Aries and so great when you feel discouraged and need a dose of inner strength for any reason. 🙂… Read more »

sphinx

Thanks for this inspiring post MM, I needed some virtual bloodstone, 😀

AnkhRising8.0

Venom draining & root chakra motion? I’m in 😉

sphinx

Of course!! It’s times like this I always recall that Scorpio shared Mars with Aries. I still think that that AND Aqua’s sharing Saturn are super apt when I think on people I know.

Yes! And killer Aries performances in Election & the super plutonian Freeway– or was it Highway? Christ almighty I was up too late last night on a Bejeweled bender, brain like scrambled eggs today.

gogengo

I have Eris in Aries!! She is on fire lately

Normally Aries vibe is way to much for me as my triple Toro planets have a hard time with the Ram’s fast moving energy + drive but I’m into it these days

davidl

I’m think we all do but don’t let that slow you down x

davidl

Yeah , just confirmed Eris has been in Aries since the 1920s 😉 it’s on my sun at 23 deg now.

gogengo

Thanks David, makes sense why everyone (including me) just seems so on edge! I’m super new to astro and was scanning my chart for any Aries planets + lo and behold, Eris.

Eris is on my Uranus at 23 too. I trust she’s doing good work on our behalf!!

scorpiodawn

aries moonage…

inner_circle8

Aries rising saying thank you. This is exactly what I needed tonight. Thank you so much Mystic.

Ren

Can’t remember where i read it but being born aries is apparently the best thing since sliced bread as your soul came to earth with a purpose to get shiz done.

Jokerman

On a Cornflakes box?

Ren

milk box, bus stop… ?!

Lux Interior Is My Co-Pilot

I felt so aries today…

scorpiodawn

getting my hair done on 18th…but thats when venus moves out of scorp, right? need to change…sorry, totes off topic i know…

FieryPhoenix

I have never loved being an Aries as much as in the past day or so! Thanks Mystic for your inspo! I have been wondering for quite some time if I really was a ram or if my parents completely botched my birthdate somehow (or if my Virgo rising, Gemini moon, Pisces Jupiter etc somehow fizzled out the fire) . But now .. . *** Mars power to the max*** … Loving it!! After all that soul searching, muck raking, deep sea diving and general unmitigated CRAP of the past 4 or so years.. Maybe I’ve finally graduated via Saturn,… Read more »

Venusian8

I hear you.. I have been going through the same slug for 4 years too! and it’s only now I can start to feel the vibe lifting… I feel as though my energy is coming back. and this triple Aries is so much more than “new and improved” it’s next level higher power ship, Thanks to the hard graft Saturn as you say. Yay us 🙂

FieryPhoenix

Yay next level us indeed! Tempered by Saturn, watch out world..

fishgirl

Do, or do not. There is no try.

Lao Tzu – no idea if he was an aries but i love it.

Also -is the Nike slogan “Just do it” an aries?

Skarab

*Do, or do not. There is no try.* Story of my Libra/Aries (NN/SN respectively) nodal axis. In My Draconic chart it’s Aries/Libra – for even more polarity equivocacy.

Sam

it is one of my fave yoda quotes

dizzarina

I thought that was Yoda

davidl

I have natal Nike conjunct my sun in Aries. Which is currently conjunct Uranus and eris and soon the full moon 🙂 i don’t have to just do it .. it’s being done to me ! Seriously though I should stop just doing it and only do it on special occasions. Apparently you can wear it out.

12th house virgo

Sounds Aries to me. My Aries daughter loves the Nike slogan (Sun, Venus, Mercury, and NN in Aries, Gemini rising)

Skarab

Nike-Shnike – i’m going straight for asteroid Champion – natally on my Leo Uranus. And talking about Uranus, it is at this very moment trine EXACT my Mars in Leo…. and conjunct my Aries DC. Sorry Libra NN dear – but i just got to DO shit right now – solo….*flicks cape over shoulder while exiting to brush hair*

Ren

If i was born an hour and a half later i would have been a pisces with aries ascendant. But ill just have to take my leo ascendant. I’m growing into it… i have lioness main to prove it.

L Cat

Pisces North Node in first house ARIES. Still wondering how best to manifest it. This little Virgo gal is nspired by these Aries peeps SO much. My two bright stars kids are both Aries moons.

Nike Vk

Is there a photo cred for the top photo? I want that outfit–looks comfortable and fashionable? Amazing.

My moon is Aries conjunct MC–lol, I’m a fiery one for sure

The Venus Fly

Aries are some of my biggest musical and acting inspirations. The Haute ones are beyond sublime. I have great sex with them too but hey, with the whole Aphrodite/Aries connection and moi with my mega Taurus ass how could I not?

Ruling my 11th where my Mars and Venus in Taurus reside…

The Venus Fly

…am I horrible for having a pic of Robert Downey Jr in his underwear smoking as my phone wallpaper??? :p

Ali

No! He’s yummy!

The Venus Fly

My homegirl tagged me in a gif of him flicking his tongue. I think I nearly passed out. AND he gets hotter with age.

Goddamn I love men. Meow.

Jokerman

Except Australian.

davidl

Specially white privileged ones.
Rob of course is neither of those.

Jokerman

But his role as an Aussie method-actor playing an Afro-American, in Tropic Thunder was piss-take funny.

The Venus Fly

Dear Mystic:

I am ignoring the tag-team snark above because you made your readers promise zero snark and bitchery was tolerated on your site.

Besos,

TVF <3

Jokerman

But racism is ok?

davidl

And the creeoy sexual objectification.. *shudder*

davidl

Creepy..

davidl

To begin, begin.

Sam

Thank you. X

Oneirix

YES!! Sometimes I feel way more Uranian but my Sun is in Aries and it always feels so good to remember that.

Ampersand

Aw, Jackie Chan, I love him. And he is possibly the only man cool enough to get away with slip-ons and white socks.

Nike Vk

Have you read his autobiography? Crazy interesting story!

Ampersand

No I haven’t but I love autobiographies, I didn’t know he’d written one, I will get on that, thanks!

Venusian8

And my personal favourite…. Emma Watson and her gender equality crusade is totes arien to the max. “if not me, who? If not now, when?” ??

Skarab

Yes. My favourite is another Aries Emma – Emma Thompson & her fierce campaigning against illegal human trafficking/slavery (the fastest growing criminal industry in the world & the 2nd only to drug trafficking) & particularly sex trafficking of women & girls. Wonderful person.

Libra takeover

Hitchens was Aries to the max! He also had a Libra moon opposition. Always up for a good fight.

Skarab

He would have had an interesting inner dialogue going on.

Sam

Maybe as a Libra moon he’d rather adjudicate with humans than an implacable and all powerful god, the ultimate in power imbalance, maybe, espesh when this entity is invoked by the power hungry as a means to perpetrate harm. Hmm just a thought
