5 Tips That Will Help You Prepare for Aries Season

Let's get fired up for Aries season!

Now that Pisces season comes to an end, you may be feeling an energy shift. This change is generated by the beginning of Aries season and the astrological new year, which falls on March 20. Aries is the first sign in the zodiac and the beginning of the spring equinox, making it the actual new year for astrology. Aries always bring intense and passionate energy. The spring bestows a sense of lightness and new beginnings. The two combined create the perfect environment in which you can fearlessly pursue new goals and flourish. Here are five ways you can prepare for the exciting season ahead.

1. Embrace New Beginnings

When you think of spring, you can't help but imagine flowers blooming and a sense of renewal. An astrological new year paired with the beginning of spring means we are awakening not only to Aries season but a new page full of endless possibilities. If change scares you, this is the time to challenge that fear. It all starts here—embrace the chance to begin again.

2. Clarify Your Goals

Mars, the planet of action and passion, rules Aries. On March 20, you may feel more motivated and excited to pursue your goals. However, one of Aries' downsides is that they often take on more than they can handle. Start clarifying your goals now, so you know exactly where to direct Aries-charged energy. Make a list of projects you want to start, relationships you want to improve, personal goals you want to reach, or tangible steps you can take to achieve long-term dreams. When you have a list, you can narrow it down to a few goals and start there. You will have so much more energy during Aries season and your goals will flourish.

3. Be Aware of Anger

Aries are known for their quick tempers, and we'll all be a little feistier and vocal during Aries season. When anger is used healthily and productively, it can be a helpful tool. It can motivate you to stand up for yourself or surpass others' expectations of you. However, when you let anger get the best of you by lashing out or bottling it up, it can be very unhealthy and harmful. Check in with yourself now, and honestly reflect on your coping mechanisms. And no, pretending like your anger doesn't exist is not coping. Be prepared to deal with strong emotions in the next few weeks and remember to check in with yourself often. You don't want to burn any bridges or ignore difficult emotions that would be better expressed.

4. Find Ways to Move Your Body

Fire signs need to be active. They need to release their energy and passion in healthy ways, which is why exercise is a must for Aries. We should all find ways to express the increased energy we feel during Aries season actively. If you're not usually physically active, start looking for ways to move more. It can be as easy as practicing yoga in the morning or going on more walks. People who are already active can use this time to tap into this energy and push themselves during their workouts. You will feel a shift in energy during the spring equinox, so make sure you have outlets now, so you're not full of energy with no outlet.

5. Practice Confidence

An Aries trait that we can all emulate is their confidence. Aries believe in themselves and bravely pursue their goals because they know they're capable of achieving anything. This is not something we all possess, but it is something that we can practice. If you want to start building your self-esteem and make the most of Aries season, try confidence-building habits like repeating positive affirmations and actively stopping negative thoughts about yourself. Whatever you do to feel more confident, know that there is an energy shift to support this new attitude in a few weeks, and anything will be possible.
