Oh, Aries. There’s no sign quite as fearless as you. You’re the zodiac’s warrior, ready to charge into battle for the things you love. As the first sign of the zodiac, you’re usually first on the playing field too. Your season is from March 20 to April 15, aligning with the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Aries is a fire sign (along with Leo and Sagittarius), meaning you’re confident, and—let’s face it—a little bossy. Add to that your status as one of the four cardinal signs (along with Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn), and you’re quite literally born to lead. Cardinal signs like being in charge, and the other zodiac signs feel comfortable following the trends you set. Your patron planet is go-getter Mars, giving you a seemingly endless storehouse of energy upon which to draw. How can you put that energy to good use in your career, your relationships, and your spiritual journey? Let’s see what the stars have to say.
