Aries Decan 2 ~ General Meaning

Aries decan 2 is ruled by the Sun (Triplicity Leo). The Sun 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 furnace, a Dragon and a Star Measurer. These people follow no leaders and work best as their own boss or taking command over 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 maneuvers 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 it’s 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.

Jail Breakers & Simmering Queens

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 they exist.” [1]

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 decan’s 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 are 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….

The Tarot card associated with Aries decan 2 is the three of wands. Karmically this card’s primary meaning is that of travel and liberating yourself from a painful situation in a past life. “Whatever you have been working on has taken off and the results are beginning to show. The future looks bright and rosy from where you are standing. The Three of Wands brings with it a sense of personal power and becoming aware of your place in the world. It is a time of wonderful growth and personal development. You are ready to spread your wings and take on the whole world.” ~ Teachmetarot. You can see that now the season has established itself Aries 2 is secure in itself and is ready to shine ...

Aries Decan 2 ebook (pdf). Includes Sun, Moon, AC, MC, Mercury, Venus & Mars, extended general section & full fixed stars interpretations. Sample eBook.

Sun Aries 2

Alderamin 12º ~ ” To be a person who identifies themselves with an idea and works toward its protection or propagation. To be noted for one’s dignity and honour.” [7].
Alpheratz  14º ~ “Honor, preferment and favours from others.” [5] “ If connected to the Sun, the native can easily become unpopular and can be toppled over.” [4] “Independent and freedom-loving. To be self-employed, or otherwise free to dictate the contents of one’s day.” [6]

The Sun is exalted in this decan so it does supremely well here as you can tell by the many superstars with this placement. Whether the proximity to Alpheratz has the effect of making the subject unpopular is debatable, as here are some examples of those who have the Sun conjunct Alpheratz: Eddie Murphy (00′), Doris Day (09′) Marlon Brando (10′), Max Ernst (25′), Helmut Kohl (34′), Robert Downey Jr (56′), Serge Gainsbourg (1º 05′), Camila Paglia (1º09′), Emile Zola (1º11′), Debbie Reynolds (1º17′), Agnetha Faltskog (1º30′). Maybe they have yet to be toppled or other aspects in their chart give them some protection from this potential. My theory here is that these folk are no wallflowers, so you either love or hate them. Exaltation has the effect of making someone almost too good to be true.

It may be that these folk suffer in their private lives when they cannot live up to the god/goddess image they project onto the silver screen.Maybe we don’t get to see how unpopular they are on an everyday level. The exaltation degree of Aries 19º may offer some protection since it is found in this decan. Austin Coppock mentions the great leadership quality here but also see’s extremes. He says that these subjects “possess the ability to create a reality and impose it on the world around them. Those with heavily afflicted Suns will feel the opposite is true and may feel trapped in worlds, not of their making. It is of great importance that these natives strive to uncover their true nature, for it is there that their lost power resides.” [1] Agnetha from the 1970’s super group ABBA, lived her life as a recluse from 1989 to 2004, had a stalker and has only recently returned to singing, though she still shuns publicity. Her Sun opposes Neptune (08′) and is trined by Pluto (45′) on the AC (00′). So I believe you really need to look at what these exalted Suns connect to, as this will modify the interpretation.

  1. I always attributed my bro’s running away to his dec.1/aquarius/m, I remember his returning 3 days after he failed his drivers license, sitting on the floor soaking wet, handsome healthy and impaired. (adolesence gave strength to the frail body but not the mind) My parents had done nothing, no cops were called, they were embarassed someone would find out he’s nuts.
    As a kid he hated his piano teacher, he set the metronome at top speed, slamming phrases together, we laughed our heads off, then he did it in a recital and the result was a new piano teacher, but he eventually dropped out of most everything, college… Then at his first saturn return he was convicted of a crime that was ment to be a prank, he never recovered and lives in a half-way house. I visit him there sometimes he loves getting wrapped presents, and opened packages of cigs. Anyway he fits the discription of a high functioning savant. My mom still doesn’t believe it saying, “you know better than all those docs! (they spent big bucks trying to get him better) his phychratrist said give us 4 months and you’ll see great rusults.” Mother is crazy too. My dad had a encyclopediatic memory so everyone thought bro inherited, but I can ask my bro anything and he knows it like missle launches, battle dates, my dad knew stamps, coin, paintings and antigues.
    I harbor typical ill-will towards family but none againts my bro. only feel bad I don’t visit him more.

  2. wow.. this is great. I find every piece of me in this article so beautifully laid out.
    I can see the connection with Leo as well. I guess that’s why I attract so many leo men 🙂

  3. I have some friends that are 2nd Decan. They are very vivid, seem very happy, are enthusiastic and good leaders. They pull hard -even in very dull and grey ambiances- and are light bringers.

    Ceci, a friend of mine, has a very well settled cafetería in a place where no one misses! Her business is very succesful and is not that she gives soooo much for service. Is the perfect place she found.

    Two of my Sci&Tech. (divulgación), are amazing. They both setteled for us many places to work at and start projects just fine!

    And just keeping their pace -socializing… not socializing and being on their own- Works fine.


  4. it seems that aries is here to settle an old score…put it right, born fighting, if they can’t get it done in this life time they check out early, too much purpose to their behavior, not malice but justice.

    1. I’m having trouble convincing the princess that her chains need to be broken… 🙂

  5. Quite a very accute descrption of this personality, congratulations Marina, this is a great website.

  6. if tradition doesn’t suit, buck it, so what if you’re run out of towm with pitch-forks. Aquarius and aries are called crazy,iconoclast….pisces loves insitiutions, the bigger the better. Aquarius works change from with in, aries blasts a hole. One often mistakes Aquarius as a ‘best friend’ their intentions aren’t ‘lovey’ but to tell the truth, Aries fights for truth, freedom, passionately attaching to groups with shared ideals, with a heady idea of showing the world their rightness and perfection. Aries appears on stage dressed to the 9s, a perfect flame, never nuanced or multi-facted, boom we get it!

  7. aries are attentive to genes not just personal genetics but generally. It seems superficial, but the here and now is where we all live and looks come from genes. Fire shares the trait and sort people this way, “who’s your daddy?” check out paternity.
    We have an illustrious ancester, very proud of, from colonial times…. the trouble is down the centuries, every boy named after him went bonkers! My grandmother and great-grandmother knew and so didnot use it. My 1deg/sagdad/leo moon/ aries AS/ thought nonsence! and so…..

  8. Interesting… I am a 10+ degree Aries, so see some of this most certainly, and i get along fabulously with Leos. I really do not have ANY patience for fools and I really do NOT like to be screwed around with. No, no no. I have been called fiesty, think and speak quickly(too from the hip at times), been always self-managed on a job and like to get things done. I drive my three degree Virgo Asc crazy and vice-verse. Really do like the idea stage of things – the beginning but pull through bc of the rest of the chart. And, oh yes, like to talk about ME – but with an eighth house sun am also a very good listener,Thank you for your wonderful site. Really do enjoy it.

  9. The Andromeda thing is spot on. My sister’s sun is at 15 degrees, so is my moon. She used to escape our strict father at night to party and Mum would leave a dustbin under an open window to get back in. She is elegant, refined, quite self centred and men flock to her helpless act.
    I pretty much was chained in a tower as an adolescent as both parents were nervous of the modern world and moved somewhere remote without night life or public transport. I just waited to be old enough to escape.
    I don’t get the fiery battering ram Aries archetype, and I have a lot of placements here, but really relate to the chained princess. I worked out a long time ago that the only answer is to find a way down by oneself as rescuers tend to carry you off to another tower, especially ones carrying the head of a gorgon. Then there’s the sacrificial maiden, perfect and pure like the lamb, put out to appease evil, horror, sin.
    Mistaken for a Piscean so often. Yesterday my brother said that as a child I was part sea creature, sand, weed, half in half out of the water with a bucket of fish.
    Most Ariens I know well are cool, intense, a bit wired sometimes, bottled up nerves. Maybe we suffer if we can’t cause explosions (it’s not nice), we implode. I definitely don’t suffer fools gladly, unless they can’t help it. Passive aggression is a problem definitely.

    1. Great site, and very good comments too, congratulations.

  10. I like the dustbin story. My Aries friend’s Venus was conjunct Alpheratz natally, so the Andromeda analogy fits her perfectly too. I left her the key, and she’s a very smart girl, so I hope she can unchain herself when she’s ready.:)

  11. Yes Greg I was going to say tell her where the bolt croppers are and then look busy, it’s much more fun to think you rescued yourself!

  12. my bro. was incarcerated, supermax, insanity defence was reviewed but his phychiatrist who took dads money stuck to the origional diagnosis, of brilliant lazy intrasigence and testified ….so the normal mal-content was placed in solitary for his own protection and it took more than a year to get him out as the injured party objected. He eventually went to a state hospital and wrote me sad letters about a grand piano in the basement that he eventually did play. His room in the half-way house is in a turret, up the last flight and I will never go again as the other exit is a rickety fire escape, however walks with him are fun as we smoke our cigs, (I don’t smoke normally) enjoying the dirty looks. We stop and visit his friends a beautiful sales girl and her big orange tabby in the jewelry srore window, and talk about houses as he can date archchitecture. If he knows the answer to a question he thinks for a moment sometimes rolling his eyes then has it. If not, he says, “I don’t know,” instantly.
    My parents never excepted him. His merc. pisces was happy listening to opera, he wasen’t the doctor, concert pianist, but withdrawn, cerebral, unable to care for himself…

    1. I miss ur comments. I understand ur eccentricity. Where r u ?

  13. Talking of Gorgons’ heads it dawned on me today that I married a man who ran a company called ‘Medusa’. DOH! (No it didn’t end well)
    Lucy, your brother’s story makes me so sad. Sometimes it seems as if there is no place for someone with a mind like that but there may be a change of attitude happening – some employers are realising that non ‘neuro-typicals’ have so much to offer if their needs are understood and accommodated.
    Thinking more about Andromeda – there’s that old psychoanalytical chestnut about the hero’s quest to defeat the monster and rescue the girl being a metaphor for the male’s need to recognise and integrate the Anima…

  14. my bro. placed himself in a tower no symbolism needed, it smells like socks, the building is a high point, the room is both claustrophobic and acrophobic, one escape, besides a door in, is a man sized window, 40 feet above the ground.
    Everyone who tries to integrate him into society, is shown the head, snakes and dripping sword. Help is turned to stone.

  15. A good article , spot on thanks .
    I’d say that Aries 2 is definitely better than rest of all 35 decans !
    Decan 1 – Rage
    Decan 2 – Regal
    Decan 2 – Rascal

  16. haha oh my god. i jumped out of more than one car as a teenager and hit the ground running. because i was grounded and wanted to go see my girlfriend.

  17. I was wondering about Mercury to Mars segment, because my venus is right on Alpheratz.

    1. Yes I started doing those, but found out it’s taking just too long to keep up with the decans as they go through the year. So I will have to add those next year. It’s a big job! I want to be completing these decans in sync with whats going on in the skies. I’m still behind as we are already in Aries decan 3 now.

  18. I laughed out loud so hard reading this. My ascendant is Aries 9 degrees(with Saturn retrograde @8 degrees Aries), and my Sun is in Libra 18 degrees (decan 2). You are quite right, I really don’t appreciate being “dicked around”. This is by far the most accurate description of my ascendant I have ever read.

    Thank you for what you do Marina

    1. Interesting. I’m sort of the opposite … Aries moon Decan 2 combust Jupiter opposite a libra ASC in early Decan 3 (21 degrees) I also don’t like being dicked around, but OH I will pretend everything is fine while quietly seething.

      I think your set up is healthier.

  19. Im decan 2 aries, 4/4/1969 great struggles and sadness since 2009…. when will this cycle break ? I’m just so exhausted on every level

  20. Annalise:
    I hear you! I’m also 4/4 and it just seems like I can’t get a break. I FEEL broken…
