The Ascendant Sign in Esoteric Astrology


(Artwork by Kagaya)


This is the dim point of light found at the center of the cycle of manifestation, faint and flickering. It is the “searchlight of the Logos, seeking that which can be used” for divine expression.

People born with Aries rising are here to teach and learn about the Right Use of Will. Aries is the initiating expressing of the Will-to-Be. It is the ever pulsating Force of Life that emerges through the creative, fiery ethers, traveling through all the various planes of the involutionary and evolutionary schemes of life, until it anchors itself in the world of forms. Aries seeks to manifest: “Let there be Light!” he says, “And let Light stimulate Form into self-awareness!”

As an expression of the Will/Power of Divinity, Aries is the personification of the First Ray. As the directing and controlling urge for the expression of willpower in the outer world of forms, Aries is also endowed with the energies of the Seventh Ray of Order. As the “Light of Life Itself”, the Ram is a pure emanation from the Mind of God—that place, as it states in the Great Invocation “where the Will of God is known”. This makes Aries the initiating force for the birthplace of ideas.

The Ancient Wisdom tells us that the energy of Life follows thought. As we think a thing into manifestation, so it becomes. You therefore should take a look at Mercury in your chart, for this planet is the esoteric ruler of Aries. The position of Mercury in your horoscope will tell you much about how you are to use your will to be the messenger of your Soul’s purpose in the present incarnation. The Soul-centered, Mercury-ruled individual with Aries on the ascendant is able to arouse, stimulate and infuse a new focus of awareness into any activity. This focus is based on the realization that all ideas coming from the Soul are to be of benefit to humanity. It is this perceptive, penetrating, and intuitively based mind that is the real “weapon” of the Aries spiritual warrior. Aries is thus the fiery channel of expression for the birthing of those ideas that further our individual as well as our collective evolution.
