Aries Decan 1 ~ General Meaning

Aries decan 1 is ruled by Mars (Aries triplicity). They are the newborn 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 21 – 30. 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.

2 Of WandsEverything is fresh, new, shiny and bouncy. These people are natural leaders, warriors, front-line fighters and trailblazers. 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 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 & Red Ambition

“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”. Aries decan 1′ s sap is rising and eager to start “ramming”, this can be a sexual or competitive butting of horns in the business world. These natives throw out a great sales pitch due to their gift for oratory. This means they are totally comfortable on stage, taking a leadership role and sitting at the head of the table. Sometimes these people will campaign forcefully for or against certain sexual/gender rights…. 

The tarot card associated with this decan is the two of wands. Karmically this card is about leaving the old for the new, deciding between staying with what you know and leaving for something brand new “ On the outside, it may appear you have it all and are very successful but changes have been occurring on the inside for some time. You may have a new plan of action or a burning desire to do something else. You may feel that your fires have been burning low and that you are in dire need of a new lease of life, change of scenery or change of faces.” ~ Teachmetarot. The meaning is appropriate in the sense that Aries decan 1 is indeed the start of a brand new cycle and the return of the sun….

Aries Decan 1 ebook (pdf). Includes Sun, Moon, AC, MC, Mercury, Venus & Mars, extended general section & full fixed stars interpretations. Sample eBook.

Sun Aries 1

Deneb Kaitos 2º ~ “Mental disturbance, some loss keenly felt, accidents such as burns, scalds and cuts” [2]
Algenib 9º ~ “Mental disturbances, fevers, and ill health, some danger of accidents.” [3] And “A fighting spirit and a love of learning.” [1]

If some of the celebrities above have “mental disturbances” they hide it very well. In some cases, though it is obvious (Van Gogh). Other celebrities here specialize 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 natives is due to successful channeling of this 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 of expressing their passion and fire through singing. The challenge of the difficult fixed stars is only evident if the Sun is closely conjunct the star (under 1º) otherwise 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!)

    1. Oh dear , that’s a bit too far .
      Anyway , you gonna get some unexpected changes in your love life in next month ( uranus , pluto )
      So make sure don’t be impulsive and ended up meeting with a loser .
      And when you’re back to England , i’m waiting for you lol ( sort of )

      1. Ha, ha! That interchange made me laugh. Stranger things have happened. Jamie and I “met” on the Horoscopic Astrology forum on myspace…*Ahem* London to New South Wales. How far ? You’re practically up the road from each other!! (Thats how Aussies see Europe anyhow.)

        Stardust, I love the info about your upper thigh! I used to think equating the stars with parts of the body was a bit daft, but now I have to admit it actually DOES work.

        1. Marina, it made me laugh as well since it gives a hint about the next two lunations – they are gonna affect my chart..will let you know 🙂 And it seems you really can relate the stars to the parts of body since something similar happened to me at previous Mars transit 2 years ago. So I was extra cautious of my steps this time, but the automatic door mechanism?? Come ooonnn..who would expect that? lol

          Arian 2, thank you for the warning, wouldn’t want any losers lol..I’ll keep my eyes wide open. I am not “coming back” to England because I live in Belgrade. Contact me at [email protected] if you are up for a virtual cup of coffee 🙂

        2. Ha ha . No problem at all !
          Wasn’t really expecting to get your e-mail to be honest with you , must’ve been Jupiter sextiling my decan from 19th , but hey if we’re still single end of next month , we should do our synastry astrology . And then if that matches ,someone of us would have to jump on a plane for it ( a bit rude , but straight to the point )

        3. Hey sweetheart how are you doing so far ?
          It’s been an almost two months . Hope that you’re doing well .

        4. London to New south Wales , that’s real distance .
          Perhaps that was destiny 🙂

  1. This recent transit Mars over my natal [email protected]’44 Aries brought me an injury and guess where – on my upper thigh! Both of them, actually. Lol, Marina you amaze me with your precise symbolism 🙂

    1. It must’ve been something to do with your road rage wasn’t it , anyway i was spot on !

      I’m afraid that Aries 2 is definitely better than your one.
      So there you go
      Decan 1 – Rage
      Decan 2 – Regal
      Decan 2 – Rascal

      1. It was totally my fault 🙂 Always in rush, I didn’t want to bother searching for my security pass in my bag so I tried to sneak after a colleague through the automatic security door at work and..bang! The rage came immediately after 😀
        Unfortunatelly, I don’t know anyone who is Decan 2.

        1. I am decan 2 and if you fancy , we could go for coffee . Obviously unless you’re male

        2. lol no, I am a sounds nice, just I am afraid someone of us would have to jump on a plane for it 🙂

        3. where are you for god’s sake ?
          I’m in gloomy Manchester

  2. My natal sun is at 0 degrees Aries, and my birthday happens to be today in the southern hemisphere! I completely agree with jumping in first and then asking (that’s how I’m in Australia!) this has been a huge theme in my life. I have more energy than pretty much everyone I know too! As well as incredible optimism! I can be incredibly focused and direct in a business sense too, which is amplified with my Virgo Rising!

    Here’s to Aries where ever it is in one’s chart!

  3. My daughter is 22 and sometimes asks me where from I have the energy to do things (and just a couple more!).

    I pray I might save my energy in order to sustain my Golden age, which looks like comming in 10 or 15 years ahead and to do something for my children and for me in the meanwhile.

    Oh Marina! That must have been something! To live between two flames!

  4. pendulum ? once upon a time maybe – not nowadays! my Scorpio rising forbids further comment

  5. Thanks so much for all the feedback Rams! I must admit I was thinking I was going to get my head butted for writing this. I can’t wait to get my teeth into the rest of Aries. Both Parents are Aries decan 3, god love ’em. Whooop, whooop!

    My Aries parents used to annoy the hell out of me when I was a grumpy teenager. But now I am really grateful I was brought up by such pioneers. And no, life was NEVER boring in the Marchione house, lots of dramas and door slammin’.

    1. I learned a lot too from your article and the comments that followed, plus I made a few more Aries friends. As a Libra, I am by nature sort of quiet and reserved, weighing everything on my internal scale before I act. My Aries friends often drag me into new places, and I enjoy their spontaneity. It’s catching!

  6. I love this post! “Jump first and think later” Yeah, that pretty much sums up my life! With the sun at 9 deg Aries and Mars at 15 deg in my 9th, I’ve always been the one to open my mouth to speak when others are at a loss for words. Sometimes I even stick my foot (or both feet) in my mouth, but always with a “wink wink nudge nudge” so that everyone knows that I really do have the best intentions. As a child this labeled me as a “troublemaker” and one who could not sit still. However, as an adult it’s allowed me to jump from job to job, career to career, pack up and move more than a dozen times in 20 years and embrace change as if it were the best thing EVER. My moon is in Cancer (on Alhena), and in some ways she has been a bit of a frowny clowny in my life, feeling a bit crabby when others misjudge me. However, I do tend to bounce back from chaos and crisis fairly well.
    Strangers are always surprised to hear me tell tales of my life full of upheaval and challenge, “wow! how did you manage all that?”
    “I don’t know, I just figured it out as I went along.”
    That, to me, is the most amusing thing about having this energy in my chart.

  7. it is said aries moon men are misogynist like henry the eighth, women preditory, teases like maryiln monroe. The people I know are friendly and funny, a male friend, who’s gay, all he has to do is walk into a room and we’re are in amused expectation. Aries is the head so the moon exaggurates a lunitic fringe, wild crazy, forgeting about it next day.

  8. What would you say for a Moon there? Emotional need for fast changes? Needing sex to be emotionaly grounded? Inherently lusty?

    1. maybe it’s an emotional intelligence thing, a lack of tact? I once went on one of those test your EQ sites and turned out to be an emotional cretin, learnt a lot by doing it over and over until my score improved!

      1. Rachel, I haven’t seen your comment before, sorry. Sounds interesting but I score very high at EQ tests. It must have something to do with other placements in my chart.
