The sun in Aries motivates us to take a risk, advance forward, and start new beginning. It’s no coincidence Aries season is also springtime here in the Northern Hemisphere, when blossoms are bursting open, and new life abounds. I will post this on April Fool’s Day, April 1. I think of the Fool card in the tarot deck. It looks like this:
The Fool card represents a soul incarnating, and each card in the Major Arcana explains a different aspect of human life the Fool must encounter on its way to enlightenment. The Fool in the card has everything it needs (symbolized by the bag it carries), a white rose to express spiritual innocence, and a loyal guardian symbolized by the dog. The Fool has wisdom packed into its pouch, and it looks upward toward the heavens as it walks forward. It’s not “foolish” as we might think of it; rather, the term “fool” implies the absence of fear and the willingness to step into the unknown.
Consider stepping into April with this same spirit. Be open to adventure, willing to keep looking up, and trusting in the universe to guide and protect you along the way.
Before you take a step off the proverbial cliff and into the new unknown, you may have to clear some karma, face fears, and do some letting go. Because of that, you could feel as if you’re taking one big step forward... only to stand still, catch your breath, reassess, and do some releasing/letting go.
