New Year, New You. Birthday Resolutions for Aries
Astrologically the best time to make your New Year’s Resolutions isn’t New Year’s Day as many of us understand it. It is our own New Year’s Day; the day when the Sun returns to the place that it was at the time of our birth otherwise known as our birthday. This is a time when many of us do review what we have done to date and make a commitment to ourselves that (if things are not as we wish them to be) this year will be different. On our birthday we often decide how we want things be in the coming year and if we choose to make a resolution to accomplish something we are more likely to succeed than if we make a resolution at a time that has less personal significance for us.
Now when it comes to making birthday resolutions we are more likely to be successful if we pick resolutions that fit in with who really are as opposed to going for one that we think we ‘should’ make.
Why not resolve to become more like to like your Sun sign? Why not pick a few of those wonderful Sun sign strengths and character traits that you have waiting for you to develop, and develop some of them further? Why not play to your strengths and make some resolutions and goals that you will make you feel fulfilled when you hit them? How do I know that you will feel fulfilled when you become more like your Sun sign? Take a look at the blog manifesto for the answer to that one!
Developing your Sun sign strengths will make for more lasting results than trying to stick to a New Year’s resolution that is at odds with you really are. Let’s face it Aries is going to find sticking to a resolution to be less impatient much harder than resolving to be more assertive or to set up their own business. That’s not to say that developing your Sun sign strengths is always going to be easy, sometimes it will be rather challenging, but the results will be both satisfying and long lasting.
So with this in mind I am making a few Birthday Resolution suggestions based on your Sun sign. There is one Bithday Resolution suggestion that applies to all the Sun signs and that’s to love your Sun sign. Be proud to be a member of Team Aries, Team Taurus, Team Gemini, Team Cancer, Team Leo, Team Virgo, Team Libra, Team Scorpio, Team Sagittarius, Team Capricorn, Team Aquarius or Team Pisces. Have a look at some of the forums that are devoted to one specific Sun sign in order to connect with people who are the same Sun sign as you. Find out what makes them (and you) fabulous!
Rather than suggest you make Birthday Resolutions to deal with your Sun sign’s negative traits I’m going to suggest that you make New Year’s Resolutions that will bring out your Sun sign’s positive traits. The more you express those the less likely you are to express those nuisance negative traits that hold you back.
So what talents and traits might Aries resolve to make the most of?
New Year, New You. Birthday Resolutions For Aries
Believe it or not there are some diffident Aries out there so a great Birthday Resolution for those folk would be to develop some assertiveness skills. They are they waiting for you unleash them! A surprising number of Aries people are less confident than they appear to the rest of us, so making a Birthday Resolution to develop plenty of confidence would also be a wise move. Make a promise to yourself to unleash that pioneering spirit too – find a new activity to pursue or place to explore.
Aries can get into trouble because they often rush into situations or take action before thinking things through, so taking up a martial art would be a great use of time for a Mars ruled sign. You’ll learn how to control and direct that explosive energy of yours. You’ll also learn to think ahead and how to act in a cool, detached manner rather than shooting from the hip. Learning how to suss out and read your opponent will help you to take the focus of your attention away from you and place it where it should be – your opponent! Learning how to read and understand theirs will also help you to become less self-centred.
As Aries is physically active resolving to take up a new sport would also make sense as would learning something new. You’ll probably enjoy taking the new information that you’ve learned and doing something totally different with it.
