As we prepare to welcome spring, we’re also getting ready to usher in Aries season. Those with the fire sign Aries are known for their confidence, ambition, fearlessness, strength, optimism — and the desire to get an Aries tattoo the moment the weather turns warm. From interpretations of the ram to micro-symbols and constellations, the options are a-plenty.
Aries season starts on March 20th and lasts until April 19th, says Maggie Wilson, a numerology expert and author of The Metaphysical Cannabis Oracle Deck. “The energy during this time of year is described as courageous, bold, and full of initiative,” she tells Bustle. Folks born under this sign are the natural trendsetters of the zodiac, so it’s no surprise many celebs and artists share it, including Lady Gaga, Mandy Moore, Saoirse Ronan, Chance the Rapper, and Kourtney Kardashian.
Aries is also the first sign of the zodiac, which not only marks the start of spring but also the start of a new astrological cycle. “This is a time for new beginnings, taking action, and pursuing your passions,” Wilson says. It’s why those with an Aries birthday are viewed as the untamed wildfire of the zodiac, astrologer Alexandria Lettman previously told Bustle. “Aries is bold, opinionated, magnetizing, aggressively passionate, and does everything with a sense of urgency,” she tells Bustle. They also have a ton of self-love.
With so much enviable energy in the air, it makes total sense to celebrate the season with an Aries tattoo.
