Aries the Ram is the first month of the astrological cycle, the Spring, a time for life’s new beginnings. In Ancient times, Ram was a symbol of sacrifice and the quest of great rewards. To the Chinese calendar Ram is a symbol of stoic sensitivity and perseverance. The horns are the predominate feature of the Ram and are fascinating not only because of their sheer mass, but they also stimulate great mental activity…..curiosity, intellect, imagination and inspiration. The spiral growth pattern builds creative energy that gains strength by the year, and like a great tree, one can tell the age of Ram by counting the majestic mystical rings.
