Aries decan 2 is ruled by the Sun and it firmly leads the way through this decan from March 31 to April 9. This is where Aries gets regal, for here we have the King, the Princess, a Sea Monster, a Dragon and a Star Measurer. These people follow no leaders and work best as their own boss or taking commandeering others. Aries decan 2 desperately wants to shine and be respected for rising to the top of their field. They can be seen as quite ruthless in pushing past those they perceive are holding them back from their ultimate throne, but that is a misconception! This decan simply lacks the charm to sugar-coat its instructions and doesn’t bother to conceal its ambitious manoeuvres like more sneaky minded decans. What you see is what you get.
This decan can be brutally honest which can get Aries decan 2 into trouble even if its in the best interests of those they are trying to direct. Despite the rulership of the Sun, this decan is not so ego-driven as you might think, but they do have to be their own sovereign. In traditional astrology the Sun is exalted in Aries. Austin Coppock calls this decan “The Crown” and says “Applied magically, this decan has tremendous power. It is the power to generate the world of your choosing, and to be its sovereign. It is the key to creating realities that do not obey the laws of the collective reality field in which the exist.” 
Aries decan 2 have a horror of being chained down to anything, needing absolute freedom to fly where they will. If you try to restrict them in any way, you will experience some of this decans flaming hot temper. The Furnace and the Sea Monster here can bring rages out of nowhere; usually triggered by someone trying to restrict their movement in some way. Controlling Aries decan 2’s whereabouts is a huge “no-no.” Try telling your teenage ram she is grounded, if you want to witness an exploding oven (Fornax!). They will do anything, anything to escape, so daring feats like breaking out of a second floor bedroom window is not unknown. Aries decan 2 is the ultimate in being oppositional to prove a point, no one is going to take away their sovereignty! They will rally round the troops to defend their rights and have the uncanny knack of getting everyone on their side at a moments notice.
