Ascendant Aries 1 ~ Degrees 0º to 10º

To Boldly Go & Red Ambition

The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Aries decan 1 the “boldly going forth” behaviour will be most notable in love relationships. The ascendant is a Martian type energy anyhow so these people will be in your face and upfront and personal pretty quickly if they take a shine to you…. See Aries Decan 1  for more

Ascendant Aries 2 ~ Degrees 10º to 20º

Jail Breakers & Simmering Queens

Alderamin 12º ~ (Heliacal rising star) ” To be a source of peaceful strength. Which becomes the foundation of life. To know that the greatest benefits and success coming through gentle determination, rather than undertaking dramatic aggressive action.” [7].

Alpheratz 14º ~ “If it is in affinity to propitious stellar bodies and with the personal points MC, Asc, Sun, Moon, one can count on becoming well known in public and popularity with the masses.” [4] (Heliacal rising star)”To lead a life based on decisive action. To have a resourceful, independent nature which propels one to reach for ever greater levels of self-expression or freedom” [6]

With Aries decan 2 the jailbreaking & simmering queen behaviour will be most notable in love relationships. It will be very hard to get these folk to commit and the very phrase ‘tie the knot’ is enough to break them into a bad case of hives. ‘Simmering’ is another great talent. They can simmer with sexuality or equally simmer with rage if they are rebuffed by the object of their desire. These folk do best in relationships where they are the boss… See Aries Decan 2  for more.

Ascendant Aries 3 ~ Degrees 20º to 30º

Bounty Hunters & Black Gold

Alrisha 29º ~ (Heliacal Rising star) “To have the skill to bring ideas and/or people together. Being able to join separate concepts to gain a greater understanding” [4]

With Aries decan 3, the bounty hunting and epic proportions will be most notable in love relationships. These folk find it hard to have a “normal”, traditional relationship because they start snoring once they get past the drama and rollercoaster feelings of the grand passion they experienced at the start of a relationship.

The Jupiter nymph-chasing is very marked with this aspect since these folk enjoy the thrill of seduction and the chase so much, that when the flames die down, the relationship can seem far too pedestrian and they seek to spice things up… See Aries Decan 3  for more.
