Aries decan 1 is ruled by Mars. They are the new born babies of the zodiac, coming out into the world kicking, screaming and bawling their eyes out. The Sun struts it’s way through constellation Pegasus, the Sea Monster, the Lizard, the Pendulum clock and the King from March 20 – 29. We start with a summary of this decan in general, followed by specific meanings for the planets and angles that fall between 0º – 10º Aries.
To Boldly Go & Red Ambition
These impulsive souls try everything at once and grab with both hands. They want it all and they want it now. Of course they do, they are the start of a brand new cycle. Everything is fresh, new, shiny and bouncy. These people are natural leaders, warriors, front line fighters and trail blazers. They have to be the first, best, biggest and bling-est. Gone is the water and the empathy of the previous decan, these folk are so sharply focused on their goals they find it very hard to see their peers right next to them. That is, until one one should try and overtake them, then it’s “Outta my way!!” Yes, road rage was probably first invented by a flame headed Aries 1 on a flying horse.
“To boldly go” is Aries 1’s motto. Jump first and think later, this is why these subjects gain the reputation of scandals, accidents and rash decisions. Pegasus’s daring ideas and vision become far more physical here in Aries. Unlike Pisces decan 3, these subjects do not get stuck up in their ivory towers. After they have captured their Pegasus stardust they swing right back down to earth. These people are lusty, red blooded and fully present in their physical body, which they really cannot wait to “put about”. (Continued in eBook…)

Sun Aries 1
Deneb Kaitos 2º: “Mental disturbance, some loss keenly felt, accidents such as burns, scalds and cuts”  Algenib 9º: “Mental disturbances, fevers and ill health, some danger of accidents.”  And “A fighting spirit and a love of learning.” 
If some of the celebrities below have “mental disturbances” they hide it very well! In some cases though it is obvious (Van Gogh). Other celebrities here specialise in portraying those with mental disturbances, (Tarantino and some of the actors.), some just look mental (Gaga.) and some study those with mental disorders (Reich and Fromm). Aries does rule the head and the stars here are extremely intense so the heat can build up in the brain if it is not expressed creatively. It seems that the great success of some of these celebrities is due to their successful channelling of the fierce Aries/solar passion that builds within. There are some really great female songbirds here whose voices probably saved them from a life of accidents and trouble-making. Here they have the opportunity to express their passion and fire through singing. The challenge of the difficult fixed stars is only evident if the Sun is closely conjunct one of the stars (under 1º). Generally however, the Sun is actually in its exaltation in Aries, which gives these fearless warriors some protection from those they whiz past on the way to the top. These folk can indeed “Boldly go forth” without too much trouble. However if Sun Aries 1 does make the mistake of going too far with the single minded pursuit of their desires, then the possibility of Pegasus’s fall will catch up with them eventually (Rolf Harris!)
