With the Sun leaving dreamy, imaginative Pisces and entering fiery, determined Aries on the 20th March, we can anticipate some intense changes and a burst of energy! Not only will this Fire sign be circulating for an entire month, but it also marks the beginning of the Spring Equinox, when the light and darkness are equal from the 20th and the days gradually grow longer.
It is no surprise that the Spring Equinox coincides with Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, one of fire, passion and great energy. The sleepiness of the gentle Water sign, Pisces, reaches an end to be replaced by the energetic, go-getting ram.
During Aries season, we are encouraged to be brave and confident; whatever goals we want to achieve, we have the energy now to go for them. The season of Pisces was the time to reflect and evaluate; in Aries, it’s time to take action.
In the Chinese Zodiac, the sign of Aries is the equivalent to the mighty and powerful Dragon, which possesses the same drive and ambition.
To make the most of this passionate and fiery energy it’s a good idea to figure out what aspect(s) of our lives we need to direct it towards. Perhaps a relationship? Finding a new relationship? (The Spring Equinox is also a time of fertility and Aries energy is hot and passionate!) Careers, work or reputation? Ambitions and dreams?

Card 1: 2 of Cups
The 2 of Cups in the position of what I need to focus on indicates that I need to focus on my relationship and improving my relationship status.
It is a card of harmony, balance, and love so if I am in a relationship, I may need to find ways to bring greater harmony into my connection; or, if I am single and unhappy with the fact, I may need to look at ways of attracting someone into my life who is right for me.
Card 2: The Hermit
Though associated with being alone and spending time alone, in the position of how best to direct my energy, The Hermit suggests going inwards and being open and honest with myself about what I want.
This can indicate needing some space to think about things, but ultimately this time alone spent reflecting and analyzing is designed to help improve my relationship or lack thereof.
Card 3: 5 of Swords
There is some kind of conflict going on here and perhaps also someone struggling with self-esteem. In the position of conflicts standing in my way, the 5 of Swords indicates there may be disagreements and an inability to see eye to eye in the relationship.
Someone always has to have the last word, which makes it difficult to reach compromise and achieve harmony. Otherwise, if single, the 5 of Swords indicates someone struggling with their self-esteem. They may feel like a ‘loser’ and not able to attract someone into their life.
Card 4: 6 of Cups
The 6 of Cups in the position of ‘solution to the obstacles’ is in this reading, indicating getting in touch with your inner child to find an answer to the problem.
Your inner child is someone full of innocence, hope and love. Somewhere along the way, the inner child has lost their voice, unable to communicate with the adult in the realm of relationships. Embracing the inner child and working with them to help improve my relationship seems to be key. Aries energy requires confidence and courage – getting in touch with the inner child is not always easy and can be frightening. But with the power of Aries at work, the ram provides us with courage and determination.
So, there is your spread! Remember, Aries energy is one of the most dynamic and courageous of the zodiac; the ram wants you to succeed, no matter what area(s) of life you are aiming to improve.
Embrace this fiery season and try this Tarot spread to see how you can use this energy to help improve your life.
