Aries Lifestyle Tips

This was initially posted aeons ago, when Uranus was going INTO Aries and so I solicited Aries people for their ‘lifestyle tips’ – it’s still here because people seem to like it. It could perhaps be useful for Neptune into Aries?

Aries Lifestyle Tip One: You do not engage with people who do not show you respect – ever. No negotiations. You just do not engage with them.

Aries Lifestyle Tip Two: Survival of the fittest is not a theory, it is a fact. So don’t come whinging to me about your stupid glands.

Aries Lifestyle Tip Three: Burning bridges is a military strategy, no need to get all precious about it.

Aries Lifestyle Tip Four: Your natural body odor is awesome. Rather than you wasting your precious $$$ and valuable time fuqing around buying stinky pong, people should pay YOU for YOUR endorphin and pheromone reeking natural awesome fragrance of genius excellence.

Aries Lifestyle Tip Five: Never queue. Never go on hold. Never complain. Never explain. Never ever give up. Never take shit.

Aries Lifestyle Tip Six: Sweat + Sacrifice = Success.

Aries Lifestyle Tip Seven: Most stuff isn’t that complicated. If it is, it is most likely sleazy.

Aries Lifestyle Tip Eight: Defend the weak.

Aries Lifestyle Tip Nine: If you train hard, you’ll not only be hard, you’ll be hard to beat.

And Yours???

“I’m just sayin” it’s response to anything really…

When I think of an Aries man…I think of Vince Vaughn. Independent, forward and determined… [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14ZO1b3T6jo&w=420&h=315%5D

“It’s hard to be humble when you’re this awesome!” and, “Oh, I’m sorry, did I run over your cat with my car while I was backing out to get myself some coffee? I’ll help you buy him when I get back.”

My first Arien thought..” Shut up and kiss me” Don’t ask..I’ll let you know if I don’t want you to again.

Hmmm…Sun in Aries, and Mercury. Number One – is way out for me – i’m of the belief that respect needs to be earnt, not demanded. Number 4 – can not relate. Have worked with lots of Rams, and have never found them to have an offensivee pong, Men always with smart aftershave, women with sniffable smells. I would add, that If you’re not going to say something to someones face, then save it, or let it go. I’m a face sayer…It’s taken a while, but if someone upsets me, they don’t have to guess or wonder what it’s about..… Read more »

Going to add “Actions speak louder than words”. If someone gives lousy service in their job, i’m quite upfront about pointing out where they have failed..sometimes it might come out as “And is that you helping?” or “Yes, i can see from the note on the shelf it is out of stock, my question is, when is it coming back in stock?, I’ll wait here so you can find me”. .. but i also give praise where praise is due, ie yesterday i spent 5 minutes on the phone to the Manager of our local David Jones Department Store, and… Read more »

I would add:

“Never complain; never explain”

and

“The harder you work the luckier you get”

Near future: My new attitude toward debt, sex and those who pay me (?)—I guess I have developed, for the 1st time in my life sorry to say, a “yeah, but what do I get out of this?” attitude. Surprised I didn’t have this before and wonder why I didn’t. It’s like landing on Mars (haha).

More Long Term: My new attitude toward life, travel, and learning (and defending the weak). — I can see this one the most clearly. Going back for grad degree and after large career and not taking any prisoners.

“-Survival of the fittest is not a theory, it is a fact. So don’t come whinging to me about your stupid glands.

-“Never queue. Never go on hold. Never complain. Never explain. Never ever give up. Never take shit.”

-“Defend the weak.”

-“If you train hard, you’ll not only be hard, you’ll be hard to beat.”

So true.

And I thought I was a trapped pisces inside arian “body”..Well, well…^^

But

More “Sweat + Sacrifice = Success.” should help me with studying in order to enter uni.

This post is very motivating, no wonder though.

Nano-Smugness*: An outrageously smug remark tossed off so quickly that you almost don’t notice it.

* Not to be confused with the Ramzilla Micro-Quip which has a slight sting that can be quickly washed off under cool running water.

sweat + sacrifice = success… this is gonna be my mantra, ive done the sacrifice, fairly comfortable with that, now to sweat!

My Aries moon repulses people sometimes as it seems to be so against my feminine crabbiness. But both cardinal (and my cappy rising – no wonder I start things and never finish them)…. anyway…. I remember thinking last time this was posted “that’s everything I always think and never say, but when I do people just look at me like I’m a completely different person” (except my ex boyfriend who says I’m a gay man trapped in a woman’s body who’s a sociopathic, violent Mother Teresa —- whatever that means) Anyway, my general Ariean lifestyle tip-thing isn’t so much a… Read more »

Aww I was just thinking about Davidl and Uber today… 😯

Oh man, I just read tip 9 as: If you train hard you’ll bed hard… I have absolutely no explanation for this error… 😯

Oh wait!

I’m an Aries now… that clearly wasn’t an error!

That was exactly on my mind… 😯

Lifestyle Tip … Always make it known that you are successful (on your own terms) but NEVER share the secret of your success.

BlackStarAries

“Girls just wanna have fun” is Arien tooo. No need to always be all tough guy about it.
Aries is the innocent fun of being alive…
“Born to be Alive” is my theme song.

Hey .. Question?? Do Arians ever cry?

Or were you guys born with no tear ducts or sumthin ….

Andromeda

They have a frustrated little burst of fierce tears in private sometimes, or so I am told…

xox rockstar libran publicist xox

only when you hit them hard enough

Ms

i thought that was foreplay

prowlncat

notices the ramzilla wall of silence around the topic … hehehe

davidl

Lets just say Ive never cried, like Bob Hawke or sumfin

prowlncat

he stuck chilli powder in his eyes before the media conference!

anotherbloody aries

i do cry, but it’s power crying sobbing for hours

not sure if that’s the double aries competitiveness or my scorp moon/neptune

prowlncat

OMIGOD you even compete emotionally and turn crying into like – a workout! hahahahahahahaha Brilliant. ~chuckling~

I’m developing a new love of Lambchops … aside from the fact they taste good slow baked in the oven.

You could be like my son (April 1st Aries) and use your head as a deadly weapon! He’s given me bruises before when he was a baby!

Scorpophilia

Best quote from aries ex, “if I can do it – so can you!” And I did! I built brick walls, can use all power tools, navigate a boat around the Whitsundays and lets not forget actually BUILD a boat too!!

worst – “you want foreplay again?”

Hence the EX part!! Thems fighting words to a scorp!!

hahahahah love it !!!

anotherbloody aries

yah, even an aries should take on a scorp

yeah but only if they have the libido to match!! If not – its war!! Not pretty…….

‘I wonder what will happen if I just push this a little bit further …?” – Aries, bored ..

davidl

Buuut, isn’t that a little like a man who likes his women bare foot and pregnant and not too brainy.

davidl

that comment was for you UP but it got iphone_ itis. I read your previous post totally incorrectly. This thread will now self destruct to hide any evidence. pffftttsssttt…

unpredictable pisces

ahahah no worries dl! am v aware of the reverse sexism thing! but don’t worry i need mental stimulation more than much else…otherwise boredom sets in quickly!!
the problem is the many of the hunky ones I meet around here haven’t read a book since they were 12, and we are invariably different in every way!!! so i continue the quest . πŸ™‚

Pegasus

My little furry creature pet is an Aries. Loads of fun
very very affectionate, has real charm, wants what she wants
when she wants it!

unpredictable pisces

all i am going to add is that i have a major thing for the shirts-off, ultra fit bod (from actual WORK not preening/gym), manly man thing. I just can’t do the skinny starving artist thing [although if it was a skinny starving artiste in the macho man’s body, i would be in heaven]. my taste is a bit old-school 80’s in this regard…
also explains how I have somehow ended up with the tradesman-types, they’re [usually] simple creatures, not bothering with complexity or nuance, few hangups, all man. hmmm i think i know where this is going. kthanks bye

virgariengem

O I agree: I would love an artist in a macho mans body who loves only me…if that’s not an overshare. But new-school equivalent might be emotional strength and focus in an educated male of any shape, who loves only me…

scorpalicious robot

UP, I’ll have the skinny starving artist type any day. πŸ™‚
I’m not a fan of the manly man or tradesman type.

Andromeda

I always wanted the skinny starving artist in the body of the manly man…

prowlncat

biceps, broad shoulders, slight loin cut, pecs, hair from the chest down to the ooooooh, nothing over 6ft or under 5’7, a bit of fat padding – none of this sinew bony business, strong jaw, great hair … sounds like I’m shopping at the butchers …

scorpalicious robot

well, it’s a good thing we’re all after a different type of meat πŸ˜‰

nat

and sometimes a different cut on different days πŸ™‚

Odette-in-Libra

Funny, I’ve always wanted a strong, masculine guy in a skinny, starving artist body. Very sexy contrast – understated strength that doesn’t have to show off but is really there when you need it. πŸ™‚

Andromeda

πŸ˜› Lol, but am with prowln re the fat padding, like a heavy-set type that won’t fly away in a storm…

virgariengem

Have mutable cursor on my lap top.

virgariengem

Yes the list is spot on! And the other arians contributions in the comments above.

I thought my tuffness was stern virgo stuff, but clearly the aries ascendent no bullshit, strength, get on with it, is key.

My energy is always recharged by watching action movies. The protagonist always makes quips just like the tips you’ve all provided, in complete seriousness. Loving it….

Pisceannn

So I have uranus on my psyche exactly at the moment. What does this mean? I’ve been looking up crop circles, feel very psychically overwhelmed, have been dreaming of a million alternative therapies I’ve going to get when I sort virgo shiz out, and at an event last week with hi-qi people I felt myself, kind of ascended, like I was ready for the next level. But all this virgo slob crap was still laying around that I literally have to deal with before that happens.
WHOOPS this should go in the mutables saturn chrono club post…..

Pegasus

Then you are really in tune with the prevailing astro.

belladonna

The flipside to wanting to be first or win is that I actually get quite cross with myself for not doing better – I think I didnt try hard enough or push myself enough.

belladonna

one thing I know is vital to me I have to be first – first in traffic ( I fess I have road rage issues but basically I just swear a LOT .) This also relates to having no patience. First in the queue – first to go to lunch – first to get up in the morning – Yes I really hate being second or any number after that.

davidl

Yeah, when my daughter was 3 I used to drive her to kindy thru peak hour traffic. One day we are about to cross the street with a group of friends, she turns around and says “look dadda, there’s one of those fuqing buses”. ooops

Seabird

Ha ha. My daughter, aged four, said fuqing followed by that really bad word, the one that starts with c and ends with t. me “Honey, where did that come from?” her “you, Mummy” me ‘no way, when?” her “when you yelled at that woman in the big car when you were getting me from kindy.” Oh yes, that little incident, Smith Street, 6pm, winter, raining Melbourne-style traffic jam and this **** in a BMW 4-wheel drive tries to push the little red Carmen onto the tram tracks.

Nothing creates road rage like smith street, raining, winter at 6pm.

Andromeda

Seabird I am so shocking in the car (Mars in the 3rd house) that when I encounter these ladies I bring out the ‘bring it on’..
Recently when a similar incident to yours occurred, my husband reminded me that those psycho’s are encased three tons of metal with bull bars, to my one ton with no bull bars..
I really think there should be two days driving school attached to anyone buying one of these cars. They can kill someone by being capricious and I don’t believe they realise the power of the vehicles.
Maybe that’s very Aries?!

Seabird

I am so so so annoyed by the attitude that seems to grow with the size of the car. I am espec. pissed off by the women! who should know better! but then if you buy one of these cars without really needing (Ie if you are not an explorer or a farmer) then you are a fuqing d**khead already and beyond redemption. Here in Oman lots of people drive Very Big Cars, and the generally gentle-men turn into careless pieces of s**t once inside the car. Boys – remember the rule, big car small dick, small car, nothing to… Read more »

one i’ve been living by recently:
“if something scares you, push past it.”

no aries in my chart either, but it’s like I cannot tolerate the idea of fear anymore.

Amelie

One of my favourites, in response to ‘are you ready?’

I was born ready.

The Empress

I love that one. You made me think of that Kelis song with Enrique Iglesias
It opens with that line.

something fishy

Venus in Aries and mars all over the place – I thought I had thought of that line!

The Empress

The only Aries I have is Chiron in the 5th. So this is where I need to kick ass Ram style?

Aries_FTL

Chiron = the wounded healer. Time to look at your wound and not flinch away from the truth of it perhaps?

The Empress

Most definitely. When I read the list my main thought was my creativity and my own self-doubt regarding it. A lot of times I don’t feel great expressing anything creatively as it seems irrelevant or not good enough.

ScorpioRising

Just do it anyways!
Julie Cameron once wrote, “anything doing, is worth doing badly.”
Trust the Universe and create.

I have the same placement of Chiron in 5th House of Aries.
Lifelong lesson is Just do it!
You heal through the arts and self expression and creativity.

The Empress

I’m loving this list. πŸ˜€

Although it may be just today. As a mutable I may not need it tomorrow. :p

muzzlethedark

On Facebook, my friends (and I have a lot) from all over the United States from teen to their 60’s have been posting their statuses (statusi? whichever) about a central theme: finding out who their true friends are and listing their better qualities.

I realize by now that we are Ariean-like, maybe we all are reassessing our standards in well, everything. What do you think?

prowlncat

Ok I’ve got my psychic bling ethereal rams helmet on and predict an upsurge in the popularity of stadium rock, the death of emo and R&B and endless revivals of We Are the Champions and Eye of the Tiger. Sweat bands will make a comeback. And bogans – eco friendly, non smoking teetotaller bogans.

anotherbloody aries

lerv ur style

eye of the tiger & we are the champions are in my top ten! (stadium rock too, embarrassingly) what about loverboy’s working for the weekend?

Loverboy! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the reminder. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE “Turn Me Loose”

I gotta do it my way …or no way at aaallll. !!!

anotherbloody aries

OH YES and am in sooooooo much trouble for playing it at 10pm+ in my timezone from (oncall and called out sleepingish) partner for playing it w/out headphones!! luv it!!!

i have their albums on vinyl just wish i had the leather pants (or the guy in them more likely)!

scorpalicious robot

hahaha… i downloaded it as soon as you mentioned Loverboy. Had a listen on my computer but can’t wait to play it at full volume on my sound system tomorrow. I’ll be dancing in my lounge room like a big dag. That should cheer me up from the incessant and depressing rain we’re having at the moment.

anotherbloody aries

OMG how could i forget????

prowlncat

You can listen to whomever you like darl! If that involves clenching the bull bar of a hummvee with only your glutes of steel, whilst hooning down Parramatta Rd at 3am dressed in little more than a flannie and db’s, whilst belting out “livinnnnn on a praaaayeeeeer” .. that’s entirely up to you. Nobody’s going to argue with an Aries anyway … except perhaps a police officer.

Jock jams: naaaaaah an Aries would consider that way lame-o. All that scratchin retro stuff. I wouldn’t mind tho’ :mrgreen:

Sounds like there’ll be a rush for old flannos at vinnies

Isn’t that what ad agency creatives are like anyway? Carrying on like they’re making an award winning feature film when they’re like … selling … bog roll or whatever.

It’s very ordinary. Just yer stock standard montage sequence attempting to cover all bases and strung together with a errr … basically shit house theme song … pass the bog roll.

Of course they could’ve initially come up with something fab and creative but had the kaybosh put on it by the client.

whatever

I think that ad’s shit house – bangs like the proverbial, is mildly declasse – who are they trying to appeal to? But some of those people who made it ARE award winners. No-one should be remembered for their worst piece of work – and we’re yet to see the bottom line to work out whether it is their worst. Those crap yelling ads work – that’s the goal of an ad, you know?

Feeling all this glorious clean and clear Jupiter and Uranus Aries energy is making me feel like I’m finally coming home to myself (sun + 6 planets in Aries). Yesterday I bought a mug with this quote on it: “This is your world. Shape it or someone else will.” – Gary Lew It sums up what for me an essential truth, you either ride the waves, or the waves ride you… That to me is the core of what it means to be an Aries. We need to manifest stuff out in the world. The greatest challenge is of course… Read more »
