Aries is the first sign in the zodiac. Aries is the initial impulse to be. Think of the seed that thrusts through the ground after the last frost and reaches for sunlight or the sperm that swims faster than all other sperm to merge with an egg to begin the process of growing a baby or the spark that ignites to become a flame and then a raging fire. There is a will to be, to exist that is inherent in those processes. To begin anything, to initiate, to create is the realm of Aries. Aries is the drive to begin anything, whether that be a project, a new exercise routine, or a new relationship. By appreciating the power of initiation, you can harness the intelligent forces of Life to assist you in creating.
This power is a force, a will, a drive that moves you to action. Aries is the great I AM. Whatever follows the I AM will determine your reality. Whatever you think you are, you become. Using this power in the highest way involves a humbleness and a responsibility. When you create, you become responsible for that creation. Whatever it is you begin, begin with high intentions, for the drive to be will take over and the creation will take on a life of its own. In the mystery schools, when you are ready to achieve another level of wisdom, you get initiated. An initiate is truly one who takes action with wisdom.
