Esoterically, Aries are regarded as the ‘light of all lights’ and represent the birth place of new ideas. These people have a magic friction that recharges energy fields to their highest vibration. This is the sort of sunlight, sunburn and heat you feel radiate from Aries that smells like spring. They generate so much fire and movement that when they stop moving, it’s like they will spontaneously combust. But something in Aries wants to be burned. They want to feel love swell through their pores and break a heart and feel heartbreak just so they can feel and experience and break and release. They want to feel the pain of falling and bleeding and flying higher than anybody has ever been. Aries are like sparks of life that billow through you, leaving a sultry scarlet smoke. They glow like rubies in the sun, spellbound, and intuitive, and spontaneous, and exploding with spirit. It’s a voyage into a flowery, brightly lit canvas, the dream of Pisces has been realised in a sort of intuitive sensitivity with the world, something that resonates with every breath of life. It must hurt Aries to bloom forever. The grand declaration of life is something exquisite to behold.
