Every zodiac sign has wonderful gifts associated with it, but there are also challenges that you might face, especially if the sun is currently in the your sun sign. Stones work to encourage your gifts and help you face your challenges.
The sun is currently in Aries (March 20th - April 19th). If your sun sign is not Aries, these stones are still useful. The zodiac energy of each sign surrounds all of us based on the time of the year. The energies of Aries are at work now.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. It coincides with the beginning of Spring when new life emerges. Aries gives us opportunities for fresh starts and new beginnings. It is the first sign in the cycle and Aries also wants to be first in everything else: first in line, first in competition. The fire energy of Aries is driven to succeed. It is aggressive energy but in a good way: persistent, not careless like Sagittarius, another fire sign. Aries is excellent for getting stuff done. We enter Aries as we leave Pisces, which has given us time to relax and reflect, helps us release the things we don't need, and gets us thinking about where we want to go from here. Now you should be ready to get going, Aries helps you get moving in this direction.
