The woman profile
by Lidia Fassio
The Aries woman possesses positive characteristics that, at first sight, seem to clash with universally recognised female values. In fact, natives of this sign have potential at their disposal, such as aggressiveness, impulsiveness, a need to act and to fight that must be taken in consideration for their self-fulfilment, which must take place integrating this strong impulsiveness with female energies that cannot be sabotaged.
She is a woman who, if she does not understand the energies in play, can easily be imprisoned in a very lacerating dynamics that recall the ancient struggle between male Martian values and female passivity which, in this case, are however activated against one other inside the psyche of our heroine.
In fact, this woman is usually very much inflated by male energy, and in her mission she will have to solve this issue by integrating these two parts without sacrificing either of them. She is almost always a daughter of a family in which female values were devalued, and therefore, for a girl the male role is certainly more interesting, and for this reason, the female part is always a bit neglected, at least in the first part of her life.
Here contradictions arise between the need to express the positive characteristics of action, direction and above all a strong volatility, and also the need to express those female values that are welcoming and eventful, a sense of continuity and of being rooted that can allow renewed life.
This is why it is important for the Aries woman to manage to understand that within her strength and courage can express themselves even if not purely in the male form; they can be activated in finding a just cause to fight, becoming a protractor of social situations which they could fight for, also for others' causes, giving voice to those who have none, or helping women find their strength.
There are women with the Sun in Aries who run "self-defence" courses or those who instead must learn to defend themselves and to use their strength; other women become fighting ambassadors for the liberation and respect of children’s rights, for the elderly and other groups of people.
In this way, the strong values that this woman possesses can be translated into a more pronounced form with the female expressing values such as being welcoming and empathy which she has and that each woman must develop inside, nevertheless also using an overbearing male energy that, if it is not channelled, would end up becoming negative energy for the woman.
The important thing for this type of woman is to get rid of the unconscious identification that she has with the male world and with strength and power, because otherwise she will abandon the ability to relate to herself and the outside world, ending up becoming a victim of what she has despairingly tried to suppress.
The woman who does not live her "Eros - feelings" nature ends up by being imprisoned inside her rage and destructiveness which, little by little, make her more and more protective and rigid like the Amazons, mythical creatures who symbolically had a breast amputated to be able to draw arrows like men, an obvious reference to the removal of the ability to be supportive and helping growth, that makes female energy noble and irreplaceable.
The Aries woman must take care of her "vulnerable" side, that is emotional, infantile and fragile: only then will her transformation happen and get the female energies running again, giving our heroine creativity, passion and receptivity, to add to her strength and courage.
