to meet obstacles and face and overcome things gives one a feelings
of aliveness. In astrology, this characteristic is called Aries.
Aries the Ram, the first sign of the zodiac, the sprouting seed
bursting forth. We all have this within us in lesser or greater
quantity. The challenge (there's that word again) of the Aries energy
is to be able to express it, and express it properly. If we don't
feed the fire within at all, life can start to seem dull or
depressing. Or, if there's something major we really want to do, and
are afraid to actually do it, the energy won't go away, but will be
redirected somewhere else, likely in an inharmonious manner that will
give a similar rush. That argumentative person always picking a
fight, is likely just afraid to quit her job and move to the
backcountry with the bears, like she's always really wanted to
inside. True adventurous, pioneering, Arian expression is like a
Klingon: never bored, never holding back anything, and seeking honor.
Aries: Feel the fear and do it anyway!
