Personality Traits – Aries can be a bit of a drama king or queen. They want to be surrounded by people who can listen to their problems and cheer for them in their corner. Because of this, there is a inner drive to get as many people involved in what’s going on as they can; this is just their way of drumming up support. This happens because Aries is here to work on issues of self-worth and a big part of that lesson is learning that it comes from within. In order to learn that, it first must come through the lens of having many other mirrors around Aries to teach them about themselves. Aries has conquered this lesson when they learn that self-worth is absolute, and is not based on the attention or adoration of others.

In a Relationship – Aries can be fickle at first. They have a mental list of traits that they seek in a partner and if you don’t measure up right away (or if Aries can’t get you to conform to those standards) they are not going to stick around for very long. But, if the Aries has done the self-healing lessons of this sign, then they will become a true reflection of their partner and be in that relationship to assist their partner in learning the lessons that Aries has just mastered. A relationship with Aries can have highs and lows, but they will always support you as long as that support is returned.

Spiritual Health – Aries most likely will not delve wholeheartedly into any one spiritual practice, unless it also supports them on a social level. Aries needs a more active spiritual practice but does well with yoga, walking meditations, group dynamics and other supportive environments.

Emotional Health – Aries likes to feel recognized, but may have a different standard of what this means than other signs in the Zodiac. The challenge for Aries is not only to communicate about this, but also to understand that others need to be recognized in that same way as well.

Mental Health – Aries loves to have a lot of things going on at any one time. This provides them with a sense of fulfillment and purpose. If they do not find things to do, or do not have healthy outlets for this high energy, they can develop ADD, ADHD, OCD or panic disorders.

Physical Health – Aries individuals usually appear quite beautiful to others, but they do not feel that beauty within themselves. Aries will be the first sign of the Zodiac to line up for plastic surgery, anti-aging remedies, body creams, lotions, potions or anything labels as a “beauty enhancer.” They also have to be careful that if they do not look at the underlying emotions related to appreciating themselves and their beauty (both internally and externally), that they can become very out of touch with the true vision of themselves and can develop body dysmorphic disorder, eating disorders and skin problems.

Relationship with Food – Aries generally has no food preferences, as long as they can be involved in the process of bringing the food to the table. This could be by hosting the party, picking out the restaurant or contributing to the recipe in some way. Food, like anything else, can become an extension of the Aries individual. The challenge here for Aries is to not view another’s reaction to food (or anything else) as a reflection of how this person feels toward the Aries individual.

What is Karma?

Karma is the law of cause and effect, or as stated in the Bible “for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Karma is neither positive nor negative; it simply is a Universal Law by which all things are governed. Yet, karmic law is given so much energy and so much fear by much of humanity.

Part of this fear stems from many long held beliefs, which have for centuries told souls how to live their lives “or else”. However, the energy of the Ultimate Being and those in the world of Spirit cannot interfere with one’s choices. Karmic Law was actually enacted to keep balance in the Universe as related to the execution of free will, not as a means to dole out punishment.

Imagine if you will an employee that is given no boundaries and is allowed to do as they please. Yes, some employees will be wonderfully self-managed, but many others would be lost, unfocused or could become complacent. That is how one can think if Karma, it is a set of guidelines, like other Universal Laws. These Universal Laws are in place because at the current time, this is what is needed to gently guide humanity through the learning and growth required to transform individuals and the planet as a whole.

Does this mean that one day there will be no such thing as karma on the Earth plane? Yes, souls can progress beyond the need for this concept. However, this does not mean that there will not be some type of cause and effect in place, but it will be much different than the concept you understand as karma today.

The way most people think of karma is as follows: first you perform an action and then the effect of that action is revealed. But, in actuality this is not the case. Both the action and the effect exist simultaneously and therefore if you look at the standard view of karma in reverse, with achieving the effect first and then performing the action, you can see how it is possible to manifest the result you wish.

One such example of this, is how I found a new place to live. First I asked for a new place to us (probably more times than necessary) but then, I let it go. This was the effect that I wanted to achieve, a new place to live with specific features that met our needs. After I let that idea go, sometime later, my intuition informed me of where to look for this new place. This place had already been prepared for us, and because I followed my intuition, I was able to manifest my desired outcome.

This process can be used for anything, but first you must release the conditioned belief that the action must come before the effect. And, I can hear some of you saying, but she did get the new place to live after going to see it. And, on a physical plane this is true. But, there is so much that takes place outside humanity’s physical vision. In fact, the apartment was there for us, before it was even constructed, but we were simply not made aware of it until the timing was supported astrologically.

Karma is not something to be feared, and once you can see that it is not a linear concept, and then you can allow for yourself much more freedom in manifesting your intended effect. The best thing that you can do is, after you set your initial intentions, just release it all. Forget about what you just did. When you try to hold on to the specifics, it is like you are donating your money to someone, but are still trying to hold onto a corner of that currency to maintain some illusion of control. No request goes unheard, and there are even specific Higher Energies whose only duty is to work on honoring your requests.

So now you might be wondering, “why haven’t I received my answer?” Contrary to common beliefs among New Age communities, you cannot always control the timeline of events. This is because before you came down in this incarnation, you asked for a specific birth chart and that chart is your map to your windows of opportunity for one thing or another. This is the most important factor for determining the timing of things. Secondly, when you have a process that involves other people (Such as relationships, work, etc) they have the right to make their own choices too.

There can be two souls who are destined to come together, but because one of them makes the choice to run away from the relationship, this can cause a delay in the other person’s manifestation of a partner. Do know that if this does happen, more opportunities will be presented to you, but you need to relinquish the control when it comes to timing. If you do not let go of the control, you will continue to feel frustrated, impatient and even angry for not manifesting your desires.

Yes, you are in control of what you can manifest. But, you need to release your need to control the when. Once you do that, and can live in a space of total trust of your intuition, then you are poised to be in control of your Karma.
