Book Excerpt: Sun In Aries


(The first episode of “Conquer The Universe With Astrology: The Radio Show” begins August 19th! Subcribe to this blog for further details… or find me on Twitter (@MatthewCurrie) or on Facebook! Hope to see you all there!)

Some astrologers will tell you that the Zodiac starts with Aries because in the Northern Hemisphere, the first day of spring is also the first day of Aries. The truth is that Aries comes first simply because Aries is too impatient to wait.
If you’ve ever had to baby-sit a hyperactive child whose parents slipped the little darling some sugar before they left for the evening, you’re familiar with how Aries energy works. Aries loves a challenge, and if they can’t find one, they can usually be counted on to create one. The symbol for Aries is The Ram, long noted for its determination, strength, and fondness for head-butting.
Aries enjoys starting things up: relationships, projects, and chain saws are all favorites. It often doesn’t have the same energy for following through on things. This quality can make an Aries highly entertaining to watch and highly frustrating if you’re their friend, co-worker, or the neighbor’s tree hanging over Aries’ driveway. The best advice you can usually give an Aries is to calm down, take it easy, and think things through. This often provokes their temper. Aries isn’t necessarily a dangerously temperamental sign, but an Aries is usually at least mildly annoyed about something or other, on some level, at any given point.

Classic MTA – Love Is A Battlefield: The Aries Guide To Compatibility

(Re-runs are a vital part of the television tradition… not welcome, not well-loved, but apparently an important part of the process. In that spirit, here`s my compatibility series again. Don’t worry, the new stuff is coming.)

As much as a cliche as it might be, I still find that when an Aries approaches me about their love life, the question may be “Is so-and-so my soul mate?” or “Should I continue to pursue whatshisface?”… but the real question is “how much of a fight am I going to have to put up to get things right?” But you want romance, and whether you’re a man or a woman, you love the challenge.

I’ve decided to demonstrate Aries compatibility by showing you how easy or hard the planned Aries invasion of Love Island will be, based on the sign of the partner.

THE BEACH: The Fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Flat, level terrain here with little resistance. Another Aries might seem like the logical place to start. Trouble probably will set in when your next planned combat action isn’t on the same path as your partner’s. Leo is comfortable, but they can be less goal-oriented than you. That can be frustrating. Sagittarius is a pleasant fit, but you may have this nagging feeling they aren’t taking you seriously enough. And you’re probably right.

THE GRASSLANDS: The Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. A little more work to empathize with, but still relatively easy to reach. Only the occasionally spear is thrown at you as you approach. Gemini can be a little more scattered and indecisive than you. Aquarius can be similarly passionate about things, yet strangely dispassionate about them too, and that can be frustrating. Libra is a little further inland and hilly, but worth the extra travel. You may find the natives here react to your every strategic move, making them surprisingly hard to catch off guard for such nice people.

MOUNT BULLMORE: Taurus. Lush fields protected by stubborn thick jungle and a steep climb. This one will take some time to achieve, but may well be worth it as a stabilizing influence. Watch out for the vines: they cling. Hard.

DREAMY VALLEY: Pisces. Gentle, restful, green and luscious. It’s a shame you have to go through so much damned work just to find a place to rest. And the terrain here can be confusing and unclear. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? You decide.

FLINTY RIDGE: Virgo. On the face of it, you two have neither nothing in common nor any reason for conflict. This can actually be a great place for you to camp out. All you’ll have to do is convince the natives it’s okay. And do it in their language, not yours. Good luck with that.

SCORPION PASS: Remember that great scene in “The Fellowship Of The Ring” where Gandalf held off the giant Balrog in a spectacular battle, only for both of them to plunge to their deaths? Yes, one of them did come back for the next movie. You think that’s you, or Scorpio? It’s a coin toss. You like those odds?

THE DEFENSIVE MOUNTAINS: Cancer and Capricorn. You wouldn’t leave your valuables in the driveway and lock up your old newspapers, would you? These two are emotionally defensive because they have a lot going on inside, and they are the most reactive to a sudden jab. The problem here is that “sudden jab” is your style, whether you like it or not.

So why even bother? I don’t have to tell you. You’re an Aries. It’s all about the victory, baby… glorious, glorious victory.

I’m Aries, And I Approved This Message

My opposing sign, Libra, would have you believe certain things about me that aren’t true.

First of all, I am not “insensitive.” I’m effective. Libra’s approach is all peaceful and gentle and “whadda you think?” Well, let me tell you: that is no way to get things done. The world we live in today will leave that kind of thinking in the dust. Sitting around and fretting about things that could go wrong never solved anything, and waiting to reach a consensus about things that have gone wrong simply delays finding a solution.

Secondly, I may be “The Ram” but that doesn’t mean I don’t think things through. Not at all.

This entire campaign has been riddled with half-truths from the other side, and I say it’s time to put that to rest. I’ve been leading this Zodiac since the beginning, and I’ve earned your vote to keep it that way. So vote for me and make it snappy: I’m in a hurry to win this thing and get on with business.

I’m Aries, and I approved this message.

Aries Man, Meet Scorpio Woman

(Click on the picture to Jupiter-size it!)

It’s funny: all those sun-sign romance guides there seem to think that an Aries and a Scorpio together will eventually lead to something blowing up. I’ve seen this combination in the real world over and over again… despite advice from well-meaning paperbacks and columnists. It seems that the key to making this relationship work is finding something to blow up together.

Traditionally, they are both Mars-ruled signs. Find something to do with that energy… other than just sex, Scorpio, that can get old eventually too… and it can work.

And for all you Aries guys out there? If you think that Scorpio woman you’re after wasn’t all that impressed the first time… well, you’re probably right. But Scorpios don’t like quitters, and that just isn’t your style. And for you Scorpio women with an eye on an Aries man… well, be patient. He’s bound to get tired of all that running around eventually…
