Above any other month of the year, Aries grants us the ability to change and shape our destiny – or as Rav Berg says, our outcome – which is unique to each of us. Kabbalist Rav Isaac Luria (the Ari) taught that each of the first 12 days of Aries corresponds to and directly influences each of the 12 months of the year. For example, day one of Aries corresponds to the month of Aries, day two to Taurus, day three to Gemini, and so on. The reason this information is so beneficial to us is because the way in which we think and behave on these 12 days will affect the nature and future of the upcoming months (changing our destiny.) In fact, we are given the opportunity to overcome anything that comes our way, challenges big or small. Whatever it is that ordinarily stands in our way and blocks us off from receiving the fulfillment and happiness we desire and deserve, is no match for the energy contained in these next 12 days. As Rav Berg says, “Aries is the battleground to determine the outcome of all battles that will arise during the next 12 months.”
The Rav explains that the month of Aries is linked to the idea of seeds, where everything is at infancy level – everything is at the very beginning, offering us the unique potential for growth and change. This is a time of challenges, little tests and confrontations, which, if we respond to in proactive ways, will make all the difference and completely transform the year to come.
For those of you born under the sign of Aries, you are never one to shy away from an argument or a situation. You despise confinement and limitation of any kind. Much like the ram that represents your tenacity, you are quick, direct and have a need to break down any barrier standing in your way. Your fiery personality contributes to your boundless enthusiasm, courage and your love of freedom. As impulsive as you are, you tend to be equally as stubborn. For those of us not born under Aries, we are still equally influenced by its unique energy during Aries’ reign, which means you are just as well equipped to break through all sorts of challenges, too!
The more familiar we are with what awaits us this month, the greater we can benefit from it. As we say at The Kabbalah Centre, “Forewarned is forearmed.” Beginning today, I will post daily tips to help you make the very best out of each day, steering you toward the destiny you desire and deserve.
ARIES (1ST DAY)
It’s time to break the “me, me, me” syndrome. Aries encourages you to focus your energy on others today. Ask the Creator to guide you because when you shift your attention away from yourself you are able to connect to what really matters. Avoid conflict today; empathize with others, assist people whenever you can, and concentrate on love and sharing. Remember mistakes of the past to avoid them in the future.
