Aries: The 1st Sign of the Zodiac
March 21st thru April 21st
Around the world, Spring is the season for celebrating frertility, new life, and survival. Ramadan, Lent, Easter, and Vaisakhi, Purim, Naw Ruz, Vesak Day, Holi, and Passover mark some aspect of this celebratory period.
At its heart, this season is the story of passing over to the summer half of the year, from the dreary months of winter darkness and oppression. When we think of the privation endured by primitive people as their stored supplies became exhausted at the end of the season of snow and cold, we can have no surprise that they universally celebrated the passing of the Sun over the celestial equator from south to north, heralding the commencement of the growing period with its new supply of food and its relief from the icy blasts that make demands for special clothes and shelter.
"The Vernal Equinox, or 0 degrees Aries, was selected by ancient astronomers to mark this transition. Not only the timing represents the spirit of this season, but the constellated stories they told in the sky mark it as well. When the Sun has circled the zodiac and passed over the Vernal Equinox into Aries, a new year or Cycle of Life begins. To many ancient people this symbolized the transition from the physical world to the spiritual plane of life. If one has ever watched an old ram lead his flock, the use of the Ram to head the procession of constellations will call for no further explanation. Aries was given the Key phrase, I Am. Those born under this influence, more than other people, tend to view things from the standpoint of Individual survival and expression. They are pioneers who venture into new lands."
The spiritual text is:
“There is no death! What seems so is transition:
This life of moral breath
Is but a suburb of the life Elysian
Whose portal we call death .”

O Thou Eternal Spirit, in Whom I live, move, breathe and have my Being! Temper my aggressive activity with gentleness in all that I do and say. Direct my love into channels of care and protection for others. Let the chief interest of my life be constructive service to the weak and helpless.
So Shall It Be!

“...The Watery Triplicity embraces the signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. People born under this triplicity tend to the lymphatic temperament. Their lives are largely centered in the home and affections. They are sympathetic, timid, dreamy, submissive, given to domestic life, receptive, yielding, mediumistic, and greatly influenced by their surroundings. In the sense that they are chiefly actuated by their feelings, rather than by carefully reasoned lines of conduct, their characteristic quality is EMOTION....”

Why Astrology and the Tarot are so important to understanding Traditional Knowledge
The word Kabala signifies traditional knowledge. It thus refers to the Oral Law, as handed down from antiquity; and embraces the occult traditions of all lands and all peoples. Often it is used merely as referring to the esoteric doctrines of the Jews; but in its broader sense it includes also the secret doctrine of other races. This secret doctrine, common to many lands, was jealously guarded from the profane, and was never permitted to pass into writing except in such ambiguous terms as to baffle the uninitiated as to its true purport. In this sense the sacred books of the world, including the Avesta, the Vedas and the Bible are largely kabalistical; for they set forth traditions that are capable of an inner, or esoteric, interpretation. In fact, there are usually several interpretations possible, each more inner version revealing a deeper truth to those who have advanced along the path far enough to comprehend it.
And this seems the proper place to point out that the unwritten kabala, like the written kabala, is set forth in symbolical language, with purposeful blinds and subterfuges to confuse the uninitiated; so that of the few who undoubtedly exist at the present day who have received it, most remain in as much ignorance of its true interpretation as the majority of students do after studying the more accessible written kabala. This unwritten kabala has been transmitted only through certain secret schools. Those receiving it well merit what is given to them. They are left to their own devices in the matter of interpretation. And because the real keys to its interpretationÃ³astrology and the tarotÃ³have been largely ignored, or distorted, they have floundered sadly in arriving at its meaning. Whether written or unwritten, the kabala is a philosophy correlated to esoteric astrology as exemplified by the tarot; and it can only be comprehended fully by those who perceive the true relation between astrological energies and their pictured tarot exemplification.
