Aries

18 Oct

March 20 – April 20

Aires is Latin for ram. the constellation of Aries is associated with the golden ram of Greek mythologythat rescued Phrixos and Helle on orders from Hermes, taking him to the land ofColchis.Phrixos and Helle were the son and daughter of King Athamas and his first wife Nephele. The king’s second wife, Ino, was jealous and wished to kill his children. To accomplish this, she induced a famine in Boeotia, then falsified a message from theOracle of Delphi that said Phrixos must be sacrificed to end the famine. Athamas was about to sacrifice his son atop Mount Laphystium when Aries, sent by Nephele, arrived. Helle fell off of Aries’s back in flight and drowned in the Dardanelles, also called the Hellespont in her honor. After arriving, Phrixos sacrificed the ram to Zeus and gave the Fleece to Aeëtes of Colchis, who rewarded him with an engagement to his daughterChalciope. Aeëtes hung its skin in a sacred place where it became known as the Golden Fleece and was guarded by a dragon.[2][10] In a later myth, this Golden Fleece was stolen by Jason and the Argonauts.

Assertive Mars controls the month of April. In Greek Mythology, this planet is called “The Lord of War,” and rules the impatient sign of Aries. You were born a leader, however, because of your inborn impatience you may also learn by making a few mistakes.

Your strong and impatient desire to succeed must be controlled and hasty decisions avoided. Others perceive you as a competitive and motivated child-like person. More than any other sign of the zodiac, souls born in April must learn steadiness, organization, and most of all, diplomacy.
