The Aries Rampage
The Aries rampage can be senseless, destructive, and intimidating for those on the receiving end. Mars is the ruler of Aries and governs the vital forces of the body, as well as anger and passion. Hell hath no fury like a wrathful Aries, and the individual’s rage is fueled by irrational impulse, childlike instinct, frustration, and defensiveness. The combative Aries feels rage swirling within, a wound up knot that must be untethered, like a volcano erupting at the seams, the lava flows through them, they can feel the burn in their stomach eroding into their chest and igniting their heart with jet fuel. And the Aries must release the flames so they breathe fire, lose control, and stand over anybody in arm’s length. It’s almost as if anger causes the Aries to shift into a frame of consciousness where rationality is lost and pure defensive, primitive conditioning takes command, it’s exhilarating, but also scary, because the Aries knows they have no control, and this is a fretful place for the self ruling spirit.
Aries descends from the myth of Ares, the son of Zeus and Hera. Ares was known for his ferocious warrior expression, like Aries, Ares would go into a frenzy that was hostile and baseless. There is a badge of honor stamped on Ares, he gravitates toward the dangerous and unknown.
But Aries are also only hatchlings. They are brand new, thrust into a cold and dark world where they are forced to survive without any resources. It seems only natural for the warrior to shield the frightened child inside. Rage is an emotion the Aries expresses most easily, unless this is debilitated by house and aspects, like a twelfth house influence or aspects made to Saturn or Venus.
The frenzy also tends to be over as soon as it starts. It’s wild, unruly, and hysterical, but for some time after the Aries feels cleansed and refreshed as a crystal.
