Tarot and the Sign of Aries
Aries is the zodiac sign of people born between March 21 and April 19. It is a fire sign, the element of initiation, connected closely to beginnings, ambition, courage, and vitality. And as with all the signs in the zodiac, Aries resonates with a variety of concepts and spiritually significant items, including psychic tools such as Tarot cards.
The Tarot is a tool for introspection, self-discovery, and enlightenment. While traditionally interpreted in the context of a reading or question, the individual cards also have their own unique energy — energy that often pairs well with the different astrological star signs. In fact, each sign in the zodiac cycle has several associated Tarot cards.
Notably, this includes not just the Major Arcana but the Minor Arcana as
well. These cards, divided into four suits, relate directly to everyday life
and experiences. Thus, while they may not be as famous (or infamous) as their
Major Arcana counterparts, they can still provide valuable insight into their
associated zodiac sign.
The sign of Aries is often connected to active traits — determination, bravery, and intense drive, to name just a few — all qualities that affect this sign’s spiritual correspondences. Tarot cards related to Aries emphasize these fiery qualities by connecting to the living potential of this cardinal sign. Aries energy is as varied as the colors of a flame, from white hot to blazing red. This sign’s energy and its associated Tarot cards run the gambit from emphasizing the importance of balance to burning away outdated thoughts and actions.
The Emperor is a card that symbolizes Aries’ passion for life, self-determination, and power. Self-mastery and self-direction, often connected to the Emperor, are key Aries traits. Furthermore, in traditional depictions of the card, the four corners of the Emperor’s throne are actually decorated with ram’s heads, the iconic Aries symbol. The Emperor is resolute, steadfast, and loyal, all qualities that are embodied by this sign. Much like the diligent ram, which manages to climb mountains that seem to afford no purchase, both Aries and the Emperor card often appear to do the impossible through sheer willpower.
The Tower admittedly has a negative reputation, as it means that change is on its way no matter what. However, what people sometimes forget is that this card is also about releasing old patterns that are holding you back or leading to stagnation. It is in this way that the sign of Aries connects to the Tower. Individualistic and direct, people born under Aries rarely fear the new and unknown. As such, they resonate with the Tower’s tidings of change, confident that they can and will persevere regardless. For others, the Tower may be a scary symbol, but for Aries, it simply represents their mindset toward challenges and unexpected developments.
The King of Wands
With a fiery energy to match the sign of Aries, the King of Wands is associated with the ambitions and the leadership qualities that Aries happens to possess in spades. In most depictions, the King of Wands sits upon a throne that is decorated with lions and salamanders (the latter of which is a symbol of fire in its own right). Like Aries, the King of Wands has a strong sense of self and is a powerful commander. They strive toward success and are naturally driven, almost always moving with purpose. However, in addition to these positive traits, the King of Wands and Aries also share the same weaknesses. When reversed or in a negative state, they may find themselves trampling others underfoot. They must pursue their goals without becoming inconsiderate.
The Queen of Swords
Yet another card with royal imagery, the Queen of Swords is intelligent, self-sufficient, and honest — just like Aries. Just as the fiery Aries tends to be intense, direct, and assertive, the Queen of Swords can be blunt and to the point. She is unafraid to be her true self, regardless of how the world may react, and she is never afraid to buck other people’s expectations of what she should be. This ferocious independence and honesty about one’s own nature are fundamental to how the Aries-born prefer to navigate the world.
