Aries: 21.03 - 21.04
When the sun enters Aries at the spring equinox, nature receives a burst of energy. The first daring growth of the season pokes its tender shoots out from the still cold earth crust to greet the first warm rays of spring. Aries embodies new beginnings, the fresh new start to the season, its infinite potential and plenty of energy. Aries are often pioneers and leaders in their field, inspiring enthusiasm in others and daring to go where no-one has dared to go before. Yet, once he has been there and done that he easily gets bored and looks for new challenges. Aries’ high energy can become destructive and aggressive if it becomes blocked and frustrated and finds no useful outlet.
Aries is a heroic sign and likes to champion a good cause. He is expert at rescuing maidens in distress, though if no maidens can be found to rescue he may succumb to distressing them himself. Aries is a dare-devil and likes to play with fire for sheer entertainment’s sake. To make the best use of his boundless energy Aries needs direction and focus, otherwise his energy dissipates or may turn against him. Aries is often rash and impulsive and fails to consider the interests or feelings of others who might be affected by his actions. For all his buoyancy he can be easily hurt and may take some time to recover from an emotional blow. He may be short tempered, but his anger, once vented disperses like a puff of smoke. Aries is ruled by Mars and thrives on his energy. He can be courageous, brave and noble hearted, or big-headed, proud and egotistical. Venus may disarm him with love and render him ineffectual. The Sun makes Aries noble and charismatic.
Candles can be burnt to create a special ambience at any time, though their soft light is particularly conducive for romantic occasions. Candles are widely used for spiritual and magical work. Ritualistic candle burning aids concentration on a specific magical intent. As you focus on the flame visualize your intentions being consumed and transformed into ethereal thought forms. Energy follows thought. To turn your dreams, wishes and visualizations into realities, follow thought with action, charged with the cosmic energy of the sacred fire.
To ensure best results and minimise any possible dangers, please take heed of the following precautions: Burn candles for one hour per inch of diameter to ensure even burning. The wax needs time to warm up and melt. Burning the candle for less than the recommended time will usually result in a hole burning down the middle of the candle and the wick will eventually drown. Keep the wick trimmed to about ¼ inch to reduce smokiness and dripping. Always burn candles on suitable surfaces, preferably fire-proof dishes or candleholders, which will also catch any dripping wax. Don't expose lit candles to draughts as this results in uneven burning an excessive drippiness. Keep candles out of sunlight to preserve their colours. Use your common sense when playing with fire. Keep candles out of reach of children and animals.
