Springtime
Greetings!
We continue in our series on the Signs of the Zodiac with the Sign, Aries. Our interpretations are based on the placement of the Sun at the Eastern horizon at the time of birth. Then all of the other planets and the Moon would be in their relative angular relationship along the ecliptic and they would fall into one of the 12 “houses” - each of these houses representing a “department” of Life Experience.
In our Solar Chart approach, the Sun placed at the Eastern horizon, is where the so-called Ascendant or “Rising Sign” degree would be if we were to do a “natal chart” (one in which the time of birth is known).
Solar charts planetary placements in the Zodiac, along the ecliptic, are approximately in the same signs and degrees that they would be in a natal chart. The difference - unless the person was born at Sunrise, in which case the Solar house cusps would be somewhat aligned with the natal cusps - the difference would be that the same planets in Signs would fall into different departments of life. For Example, the marriage, career, money, romance, health, etcetera, "houses."
Solar horoscope interpretations with the Sun on the Eastern horizon, tend to be interpreted more from an adult character development or Solar perspective.
To learn more about some of these basics, you may wish to go to the archieved articles on AquariusServices.net and look at the July 2011 article in Metaphysical Times.
For further information on this series and its “WHAT - WHERETO - HOW - WHY?” approach to interpreting the Sun Signs, you can refer to the archived articles, mentioned above, for Metaphysical Times, Winter 2011, pg. 3
These articles are based on information in my forthcoming book, “SUN SIGN POTENTIALS - A Guide to Understanding Self and Others.”
ARIES
March 21 - April 19
(This 1st Solar House Cusp is somewhat descriptive of the "WHAT" of Your Life Focus)
Your Sun Sign, Aries, is an active, fiery sign. Your planetary ruler is Mars, and he relates to courage and focused energy. Like the first season, Spring, you tend to be first in most situations. And, like the newly sprouting plants pushing through the soil in Springtime, you, too, seem to want to brush aside obstacles.
You tend to be a decisive, do-it-now, type person. Yours is the impulse to be. Your experiences in life often center around yourself. At times you probably feel a need to prove yourself through your activities. Often this is to convince yourself! You are naturally inclined to be competitive. You are quick, intelligent, and active. You’re enthusiastic and creatively self-expressive. You were born Some areas of interest may include: religion, philosophy, psychology, writing, teaching or travel. Sports activities and the outdoors may strongly appeal to you, as you need areas like that to release your explosive energies.
Your two closest fire Sign “relatives” in the Zodiac are Leo and Sagittarius. Your creativity, pride, romantic and playful nature comes from Leo. Your philosophical, frank, freedom-loving and religious leanings come from Sagittarius.
You tend to be quick-tempered, but quick to forget as well. When not at your best you can be somewhat impatient and selfish. And you can take things personally. One of your biggest lessons, then, is the “Golden Rule”: ‘Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”
You tend to be very creative and enterprising. There’s a tendency to start many things. You may also need to learn to finish some of these projects, or else focus your energies in fewer areas. Another option, here, could be to work with others. Perhaps you could “do your thing,” that is, get things started or be the creative initiator, and others involved might be able to carry on from there and bring things to completion. Certainly, much of your creative activity centers around you. Because of your tendency to plunge right into things, you’ll probably cover more ground than most of the people around you who are perhaps, not quite so venturesome. However, you may have to do some things over again due to your tendency to work quickly with what is at hand! So sometimes you’ll probably end up “going back and looking at the directions” - so to speak - after you’ve plunged into something and hit some snags. However, no one can call you indecisive.
You can love yourself, probably as much as any other Sun Sign - except, perhaps, Leo! You do need to be aware of your ego and try not to get too wrapped up in yourself. Carl Jung said that,
"We spend the first half of our
lives discovering ego - the second half, learning to relinguish it."

All things considered, though, you are a vital, courageous, inventive, independent, individual, who will likely end up doing most things your way. And your way is usually a now-oriented, direct-action, approach to most situations! Yours is a life of emergence of Self - of becoming and being and doing. Libra 7th House Cusp Influences
Sept. 23 - Oct. 22
(Relating to the "WHERETO" of Your Life Focus)

Like so many things you do, you could suddenly plunge into marriage. You are attracted to cooperative, peace loving types who are good at dealing with people. And that is the type of partner you attract. Your partner, or spouse, would have a strong sense of fairness and would try to create peace, harmony and beauty.
Sometimes, for the sake of harmony your mate may tend to avoid making certain decisions, or committing to one side or another of certain issues. This periodic non-commitment or vacillation may try your Aries patience (or should we say, natural lack of patience!), Yet you learn through your close associations how to be more aware of the significance of others and their values. You learn through your relationships how to become more considerate and cooperative. There's a saying that you might find to be beneficial in your relating experiences:

"Diplomacy is the art of letting others have
your way."

To have attention requires an audience, and unless your ego dissolved somewhat you would probably end up playing to an audience of one - you!
It is natural for you to lead, and to be active and to express yourself in frequent new situations. However, there is nothing that says you cannot do this in cooperation with others, or with consideration of others in mind. Listening to others will prove beneficial to you at times. This sometimes isn't too easy for you because you like to be the idea person, the winner, the leader, the originator of things.
While you are learning more about fairness and consideration your part ner may be learning more about initiative, leadership and courage from you. We all attract the kind of people symbolized in our opposite sign in the Zodiac. (For you, Aries, that is Libra types - not necessarily by Sun Sign.) And through our experiences with these opposite types, we begin to more fully appreciate the significance of others.

Cancer 4th House Cusp Influences
(Relating to the "HOW" of Your Lie Focus)
Your home and family life is important to you as a needed anchor point from which you can reach out and touch the world with your ever new beginnings. You will likely place a high value on your property and family as they represent a stabilizing foundation for you at the emotional level. Your mother and your family seem to be a strong influence, in some way, on what you are building for in life. Family loyalty and support are important to you - especially emotional support.
Without such a secure base of operation you might find it difficult to strive for career or other social success.
Your mother can be a nurturing, supportive, “mother-hen” type at times. She would also be somewhat protective of self, family and property. She may exhibit clannish tendencies as well. Nevertheless, she is capable of pouring much energy into helping family to grow and get onto their own feet.
You, too, take on some of these domestic, nurturing, emotional traits, Aries - more so as times goes on. And at any time you feel that someone poses a threat to those who are emotionally close to you, your combative nature may suddenly be aroused to protect them through aggression.
Capricorn 10th House Cusp
Influences
Dec. 22 - Jan. 19
(Relating to the "WHY" of Your Life Focus)
Most of us go through major life changes around age 29 or 30. This cycle repeats when we reach our late 50’s . For you, Aries, these changes will probably relate to career or other social ambitions for fulfillment. How rewarding these turning points are depends on how well some of the lessons mentioned in the following paragraphs are learned.
You have a desire to get ahead in the world’ to be successful and respected. And the first lesson to be learned, in order to achieve this success, is the proper use of social power. To show off, boast or overwhelm others with your power and well-developed ego, would almost certainly attract eventual downfall. Other major lessons and success keys include: perseverance, practicality, discrimination, and your very important lesson of patience!
You’re very much an action-oriented now person. However, you can still show action, initiative and leadership in step-by-step progress, instead of rushing to get something accomplished at the expense of quality or craftsmanship. Paul Reps wrote:
"Slow motion
cures
commotion."

As you learn patience, self-discipline, organization and control, you then may gain some recognition for your hard work and your ambitious, competitive spirit. Many tests are encountered in your drive to get ahead.
In your fight to get to the “top of the mountain” you are likely to have some tense situations. At first, this may relate to your father - or, he may be a strong influence in your drive for attention and respect. There may also be conflicts relating to authorities or a boss. These developmental tensions can often be due to your tendency to be an individual and to have the freedom to do things your way. In any case the crises generated are Nature’s way of impelling you to do something about your desires. And whether this involves a position of leadership, starting your own business, or winning the respect of others in some other way, you will at least need the freedom to act as an individual in your pursuits out there in the eyes of others.
Finally, Aries; may you discover you; and live life to the fullest through your numerous activities, personal pursuits, and new beginnings. With your emerging self-awareness and freedom, though, you will find much reward through cooperative efforts and awareness of others and their individuality. Perhaps you can develop a style of expressing your leadership, and showing initiative, in ways that will harmonize with others! Being diplomatically assertive may be the way. Through this balancing consideration and living by the "Golden Rule" you will bring more harmony into the ever-present now in which you live. We’ve discussed some of your “seed potentials” in Life. Perhaps in these you may find your natural approach to this Joyful life we’ve all intended to experience.
In Oneness,
Dennis
