Athena‘s connection with Aries is fairly straight forward. Aries is associated with the head, and anyone even remotely aware of classical mythology knows that Athena sprung fully-formed from Zeus’ head, and is associated with intellect and all that it entails. Aries in particular is associated with traits like leadership, strategy and courage, all traits intrinsinc to Athena in her myths. Aries in particular is associated with the fire of the mind, raw creativity and thought, as well as the rising of the dawn, being the start of the Zodiac and exalted in the Sun, all traits visceral to the nature of Athena’s story, being the Nous of Zeus. Notably, the bird most associated with Aries is the owl, though Ares is also associated with owls (indeed, owls are also associated with Scorpio).
Athena in Aries is easily comparable to Hephaistos in Libra and Ares in Scorpio. The former relates directly to their mythology: the daughter of Zeus without a mother and the son of Hera without a father, the use of fire in benefit of civilisation, even their very unfortunate encounter. Aries and Scorpio are both signs associated with Mars, and represent vividly the contrast between Athena and Ares: the goddess of strategy versus the god of bloodlust, the light of the mind versus the water of the blood, the symbol of the dawn and renewal versus the symbol of death and the end.
Flaws are part of the human existence and beauty. Preferably as a whole, we prefer to work on our flaws, but sometimes others fail to recognize our faults. Read on to find out how to improve and work on your short-comings.
Aries:Takes charge and tries to tackle setting up the tent. Gets way too mad when the fucking piece of shit doesn't work and resorts to screaming and hammering pegs into the ground with the force of a thousand pissed off Rams.
Taurus:Was literally dragged from their house kicking and screaming. Barricades themselves in the car and contemplates phoning the police because they're 100% sure this shit is kidnap.
Gemini:Watches Aries in horror, offering well thought out suggestions such as "you're trying to put up the tent, not sacrifice it to the gods". Makes a quick yet stylish escape when the hammer is turned on them.
Cancer:Went to use the bathrooms an hour ago. A spider crawled on the toilet door and they've been trapped there ever since. It's okay though, they've accepted their new bathroom life now.
Leo:Is a little put out because they're sure Beyoncé doesn't have to put up with this shit. Wanders off from the insanity for me time, despite the fact that all time is me time.
Virgo:Is in a state of pure, inconsolable panic at the fact that they were talked into venturing to this hellhole with a bunch of disorganised fucks. Contemplates leaving to live in the woods.
Libra:Stands outside the car, wrapped up in blankets, attempting to talk Taurus out of calling the police. Tries to convince them to leave the car or let them the fuck in because it's freezing and they dressed to be cute instead of warm.
Scorpio:Didn't particularly want to be here in the first place but they were worried they weren't getting enough vitamin D from living in their cave. Brings their own tent and stays the fuck out of the way of those lunatics.
Sagittarius:YES YES YES YEEEES FUCK YES FUCK ME FUCK YOU YES YES YESSSSSSS CAMPING OUTDOORS WILDERNESS SURVIVAL CAMPFIRE CAMP SONGS SCARING LIBRA WITH HORROR STORIES YEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS
Capricorn:Sat in a chair they brought from home, sipping their drink and looking over their book at the chaos unfolding in front of them. Wonders of humanity would be better off if they got lost here.
Aquarius:Jumping around to bad music yelling something about spring break despite it not being anywhere near spring. Drunk on cheap wine and clinging to Sagittarius because BEST SPRING BREAK EVER.
Pisces:Got lost in the woods hours ago. Has made animal friends and transformed into a Disney princess. Throws a bitch fit when the rest of the signs try to carry them kicking and screaming back to camp.
