The houses of the horoscope represent different areas of life, described in terms of physical surroundings as well as personal life experiences. The placement of a planet or zodiac sign in a house will determine, to a large degree, the area of life in which it acts, and the goals and activities on which its drive or impulse will be focused.
Your Planet Mars
To ancient astrologers, the planets represented the will of the Gods and their influence on human affairs. To modern astrologers, the planets represent basic drives and impulses within the human psyche. These drives express themselves as different qualities throughout the twelve signs of the zodiac and in different circles of life through the twelve houses.
Medical astrology, traditionally known as Iatromathematics, is an ancient medical system of healing connecting the body and disease with the twelve astrological signs. Each astrological sign, along with the sun, moon, and planets are associated with different parts of the human body that correlate to disorders of its associated muscles, nerve systems and organs.
The system of medical astrology has been used to codify the associations of the signs of the zodiac with the parts of the body as follows: Aries – head, face, brain, eyes
The planets are also associated with certain portions and functions within the body: Mars – muscles, head, adrenal glands, senses of sight, smell and taste
In medical astrology, Aries is ruled by the head, face, brain, eyes and sense of smell. You are definitely head strong and often too much in your head. Therefore, this can often lead to tension headaches and even migraines. You often just move forward quickly and without thinking. Because of this, you have a tendency towards slips and falls, cuts and bruises or painful injuries. The majority of your health issues tend to be due to or aggravated by stress.
You are so dedicated and driven, that stress can catch up with you and before you know it, you are a complete mess. Take time out! As I know this is one of the most impossible tasks for you, it is essential for a healthy balance. This is also why you tend to suffer from adrenal fatigue.
Your adrenal glands are a part of kidney system. These endocrine glands sit on top of the kidneys and are mainly responsible for releasing hormones in conjunction with stress through the synthesis of corticosteroids such as cortisol and catecholamines, such as epinephrine. Adrenal glands affect kidney function through the secretion of aldosterone, a hormone involved in regulating blood osmosis.
The adrenals release three classes of hormones responsible for maintaining metabolic processes by managing blood sugar levels, regulating inflammation, regulating the balance of salt and water, controlling the “fight or flight” response to stress, maintaining pregnancy and initiating and controlling sexual maturation during childhood and puberty. The adrenal glands are also an important source of sex hormones such as estrogen and testosterone.
Taking care of your eyes is very important. Eye strain, conjunctivitis or sties can be something you are prone to, especially in the Spring.
Making moderate exercise apart of your lifestyle will benefit you better than just showing up to the gym once in a while. Eat foods that boost your metabolism and eating foods in season will serve you greatly.
Your healing color is red.
Aries is yang in nature. Yang energy is more masculine, is related to light, sun, brightness, heaven, time, south, east and left. Yang signs are the odd numbered ones. Those belonging to yang energy have a tendency to be more assertive and self-expressive.

The Lucky Aries
Luck. What exactly is luck? Is luck being at the right place at the right time? Finding that lucky penny? Always landing on your feet? Finding a four leaf clover? Discovering bird droppings on your shoulder? What ever your idea of luck, research has found that people are divided.
Aries are lucky people. You make your luck happen! You are driven to be the best and your competitive nature and fiery personality get you where you have to be and in turn, encourage your luck to fall right where you need it! You are certain that the future is going to be full of good fortune. These expectations become self-fulfilling prophecies by helping you persist in the face of failure, and shape your interactions with others in a positive way.
Your lucky number is nine – nine vibrates to Mars – ruler of Aries (Mars is male sexual drive representing energy assertiveness and also anger. Mars represents how we get what we want!). Nine is the number of mastery over lessons in life. If life is a school, a nine crystal will enable you to pass all your final exams. Tuesday, which is ruled by Mars, is your lucky day for calming your aggression, stimulating your passion and increasing your personal power. You have the ability to overcome the challenges of illness, loss of a job and change on any level including courage and conflict. Now get lucky!
Money and Aries
Money is your reward for hard work. Some important values about money include giving, sharing, accepting compliments and recognizing new beginnings.
Aries are impulsive with money. Money for you is living in the now. You do not tend to be too concerned about money for tomorrow. Impulsive spending, joyful buying and the pursuit of pleasure seem to get in the way more often than not. Just think, if you had better follow through, you would have a bigger savings account. You would actually make the idea of padding your bank account a reality. Now get money!
Aries and Career
Abundance is a long lasting, enduring enjoyment of life. It is being in love with living. Your career should be something you absolutely love doing. Since we spend the majority of our lives working, why would you ever just do something to get by. Life is much too short to not be doing something that brings you joy and happiness, reward and fulfillment, pride and satisfaction!
Aries are competitive and ambitious. You are a born leader. You have the drive to move forward and you do it with great flare and enthusiasm! You are always up for the challenge and are skilled as an innovative thinker with great initiative. You are attracted to any job where you are in higher management, head of the company or top billing!
You can inspire those around you to make better progress. You can also miss the little details. If you are not careful, you can also drive your business into the ground because of your insensitive nature or difficulty in delegating work, since you can be a bit of a control freak. Now find success!
Happiness and Aries
Happiness is an expression of gratitude. Research has found that a great deal of unhappiness stems from negative thoughts. Happiness is not just a life lived by accumulating moments of pleasure. Happiness is a rhythm, an order, a balance. We choose to be happy.
Aries can be happy people. You are most happy when at the front of the line. You are a leader, not a follower and you get great joy from running your own business, exploring a new frontier or making new discoveries. You are the daredevil of the zodiac and a true adventurer. You enjoy having the newest gadgets, excelling in sports and having people around you who love your motivation and drive. You can be extremely insensitive to anyone, you feel, is weaker than you. Now find happiness!
Sex and Aries
Our “sexual-esteem” or positive reverence for and confidence in our capability to experience our sexuality in a satisfying and enjoyable way are all a part of our sexual health and a very important part of our well being. Our most sexual organ is the brain! Our minds can create the most perfect fantasies or sexual relationship. It is the power of our minds that can enhance the desired sexual experiences and is what realizes our sexual pleasure.
Aries is the sign of the chase. You pursue your sexual interests with the skill of a hunter and you don’t quit until you have accomplished your goal! Your warrior god-like traits given to you by your planet Mars makes you the consummate lover extremely skilled and accomplished in the art of lovemaking. Your desire for a good thrill ride, an exciting chase and a big finish is what you strive for.
You thrive on new adventures and your sexual escapades can be wide and diverse. You are an egotistical ram when it comes to your conquests and you love being told how great you are. The problem here is that you get bored easily after the chase is over and if your ego is not at least being feed, you are ready to move on to the next challenge. A lesson in humility would be a wiser choice of accomplishments. Now get sex!
On the Edge: Born on the Cusp
If you were born within a few days of the Sun’s movement from one zodiac sign to the next, this means you were born “on the cusp,” and you’ll feel the influence from both zodiac signs. This combination creates a “personality type” that makes you unique!
Cusp of Aries and Pisces
March 17 to March 23
Known as the cusp of Rebirth, the head strong leadership of Aries is combined with the indecisive and dreaming Pisces to create an entirely new personality. The “take action” Aries and “adaptable” Pisces persona makes you the one for the job (and getting it done).
No one does it better than you, and herein lies the problem. If done with an open mind that is impulsive and imaginative, you will balance your task with great execution and make friends in the process.
The cool waters of Pisces and the fire of Aries can either extinguish your drive or evaporate your day dreams when you are out of balance. So finding a position where you are not always right and consider listening to other’s ideas. This will build your character and find you more friends (instead of the ones who avoid you).
You are like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, offering a new approach and another way of doing things. Your “reborn” persona makes you fresh with new ideas and you always have much to offer!
Cusp of Aries and Taurus
April 17 to April 22
Known as the cusp of Power, the elements of fire and earth create a successful, powerhouse of energy, leadership and can steam-roll the road to success. You are a definitive source to be admired.
Your ram-side, gives you great energy, pushing you forward towards every goal. Your bull-side, offers up practicality and takes care of all the details.
You are a personality with two signs, both having a set of horns. You are opinionated and controlling by nature. You watch others doing things, knowing you could do much better than they can. This makes your nature, doubly aggressive, so pulling back with some humility, will make you truly appealing.
You have a power personality. You achieve goals and reach for the stars. You do it practically and with great intention. Your sign combination is a force to be reckoned with. You are a symbol to those who need drive and inspiration.
