Aries Season is an exciting time, bringing a fresh start and an opportunity for us to fully embrace our passions. The sun will enter Aries on March 20th at 2:06 p.m. AEDT and stay there until April 20 at 1 a.m. AEDT, bringing the spring equinox and the astrological new year along with its solar ingress. After a long summer, the vibrant energy of winter is much needed to spice up our lives. It’s a time of rebirth, and Aries Season is giving us the boost we need to move forward and start a new path in our lives.
The planet Mars governs over Aries, a zodiac sign known for its impulsive, action-oriented, and fierce nature. Aries is also associated with being super sensual, argumentative, and savage. As we move forward in the upcoming month, it’s a time for Aries to assert their feelings and make their presence known. This period sets the momentum for the cosmic year ahead.
Aries is recognized for its fierce, competitive spirit and unyielding desire to come out on top in every aspect of life. If you’re in search of someone who will stick with you through the good times and the bad, you can rely on this zodiac sign to be there for you through thick and thin. During Aries Season, we strive for nothing less than perfection, and we expect the same level of commitment from those around us. We refuse to settle for mediocrity, and we make a conscious effort to cultivate meaningful relationships that are built on mutual respect and effort.
The cardinal and fiery vibe of the ram doesn’t want us to sit still and wait for things to happen, so we are going to be trying to make connections with others, manifest our desires, and go after whatever we want to add to our lives. It’s a time in which we won’t be afraid to be selfish and put ourselves first — which we all should do more of, as long as we’re not hurting anyone else — and use the fiery energy to go for the gold in our lives.
What’s unique about this Aries Season is that it will be a combination of different energies. On March 20, the sun will enter Aries. Mars, the planetary ruler of Aries, enters Pisces, which will encourage us to take movement through our fantasies and emotions. Our approach towards situations and others will be dreamy and non-confrontational. 
March 25’s lunar eclipse in Libra will prompt us to decide who and what we are most committed to. We will be letting go of certain partnerships and bringing in new ones, while letting go of the past and moving into a renewed state of being. 
From April 1 to 25, Mercury will start spinning backward in Aries, making this spunky retrograde take up the bulk of Aries Season. During this time, communication may become difficult, as we’ll be expressing ourselves from a heated place. It’s essential to take time to understand what we want to say and what others are telling us before reacting. Words can become salty, travel will be frustrating, and the overall momentum is going to be slower. Be mindful and calm in expressing oneself.  
On April 5, Venus enters Aries, the Planet of Love and Romance. During this time, there will be a strong desire to work towards making relationships advance and deepen quickly. The influence of Venus in Aries likes to rush matters and partnerships. Get to know your counterpart before jumping into a commitment. Don’t rush love. 
The upcoming great American total solar eclipse on April 8 is expected to create an intense buzz amongst us Earthlings, pushing us out of our comfort zone and encouraging significant changes. This eclipse may bring unexpected and impulsive endings to situations, leading to a whole new philosophy and way of being. As Mercury will be retrograde during the solar eclipse, it may take some time to comprehend or observe its effects. It is crucial to concentrate on our own necessities while making decisions and to avoid reacting to people when drama is brought to the forefront of our connections.
Each year brings a unique set of energies. This time around, Aries Season begins with a gentle melody and gradually transforms into a power ballad. To avoid unwanted occurrences, it is critical to stay in our lanes and focus on our own path.
