Happy Astrological New Year! Every year the sun moves into the first sign of the zodiac, Aries marking the first day of the astrological year and the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere. Aries as the first sign of the zodiac loves a fresh start and many of them love to take risks and create new opportunities for themselves. We could all use this type of energy and there's no better time to bring newness into your life than spring when seeds that are planted begin to grow. So let's live vicariously through our Aries friends and decorate for Aries Season!
Aries Season Tip #1: Make Home Changes You've Been Putting Off
As the first sign of the zodiac, many Aries have a lot of energy and are quick to act, even if they haven't thought all of the details through. If they want to implement a change, they'll usually do it immediately. So if there's some change at home you've been putting off - a kitchen/bathroom renovation or even a smaller task like a decor overhaul, now's the time to do it. Sometimes the best strategy is just to start and figure out the details as you go along.
Aries Season Tip #2: Spring Clean
When the sun moves into Aries, it's spring in the northern hemisphere and we've all heard the term "spring cleaning." Spring is a physical and mental representation of renewal so now's a great time to clean out any clutter you've been holding on to and should have gotten rid of in January. But don't stop there, incorporate things reminiscent of spring - beautiful flowers, a new home fragrance and/or pastel colors...if that's your jam. You don't have to get crazy - a change to your down comforter, sheets and pillows is enough to bring spring into your home.
Aries Season Tip #3: Get Fiery
If spring pastels are not your thing, you can embody Aries energy by bringing stronger, fiery colors into your space. Aries is the first fire sign of the zodiac and bold bright colors can give this sign the energy it needs to keep going. Red, orange and citrus like colors are energizing and if used the right way can bring both the softness of spring and the power of this cardinal sign into your space. Just make sure to test the colors out in the way of accessories before making the commitment to painting your entire room red, 50 Shades of Grey style...
Aries Season Tip #4: Work it Out
Aries is ruled by action planet Mars and in Roman Mythology, Mars was the god of war. This gives many Aries a ton of energy which they need to exert in some way. Many of them do this by working out and/or playing sports. If you're not naturally an active person or someone who loves going to the gym, try to create your own workout space in your home that will encourage you to keep fit. You don't need clunky gym machines...look into shadow boxing, kettle bell and body ball exercises that you could easily do in the comfort of your living room.
Aries Season Tip #5: Put Yourself First
This is more for those of you who have a roommate or live with a significant other. Some of our Aries friends can be a little self-centered at times, but I promise they don't do it on purpose! We all could learn a thing or two from them about self-care and putting yourself first. If you're someone who is constantly catering to your loved ones without doing something that makes you happy, try to remember to put your "oxygen mask" on first. It could be a simple as taking a 30- minute bath or enjoying your favorite show in peace. Commit to doing something that fills your pleasure tank up first!
