Light Your Fire: Venus and Mars in Aries

Venus and Mars in Aries are now in the first sign of the zodiac

actionTogether they give us the go ahead to initiate in order to give birth to new creative projects.

This creativity is heightened as this week also sees the Sun joining dreamy visionary Neptune in Pisces.

Any ritual for Aries involves lighting the fire within.

Aries is fast, it’s instant, it the spark of fire, the ignition. It’s passion!

Dancing to fast rock music, drumming, marching, doing something new for the first time are all ways to celebrate this new vibrant energy.

Mars governs adrenaline in the body, the thrill we experience on a roller coaster ride that makes our blood tingle, so we know we’re alive.

What activity does that for you?

Mars is the colour red. How about honouring Mars by buying red flowers, wearing red clothes, red nail varnish or red lipstick for us gals?

Tuesday is Mars’s day, especially before midday. Wars are often started on Tuesdays!

Anger is Mars

The 3 fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are more at ease in expressing anger. However, just like fire, it bursts out then is over. Fire signs tend not to hold grudges! Sport is an obvious way to express the energy of Mars in a healthy way.

If pushing down anger is an issue for you, then one idea to release pent up anger is to have a full body ‘tantrum’. Lie on your bed and pound it with your fists and legs. It works! A pillow fight is another way to safely release this energy.

Self love

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac-its all about ‘me’ so combined with Venus the planet of love, the Universe is asking us to dare to be bold, be courageous. To put ‘me’ first. This isn’t selfish, it’s self love. Self sacrifice doesn’t help anybody, having the courage to love, does.

This week I found a prayer for love from the wonderful teacher and author Marianne Williamson in my files.

I share it with you. Speak it out loud, you will be sending a message into the Universe:-

loversDear God,

Please show me how to love.

Teach me how to extend my light into the life of another.

Remove the barriers to my soul, the walls which stand in front of my heart,

My commitment to aloneness.

My resistances to joining.

I do not seek love, dear God, for I know it is all around me.

I seek instead the healing of my resistance to it, the strengthening of my spirit;

That I might learn to love, to love well, to love fully, to love deeply.

When my true love calls, dear Lord

Please keep my ears open.

Let me not shut down.

Let me not forsake her.

Let me always remember that her call to love her is my call to love You.

Thank You very much.
