Stephanie AzariaWeekly Horoscope - Aries

Your sign is named for Ares, the God of War. As a result, whether you’ve ever given it a moment of thought or not, you subconsciously identify your Self with the warrior archetype. For a very long time humanity has collectively confused the warrior energy with the essence of empowerment, and this is a misunderstanding that has trickled down to you. It’s time to let go of the warrior identity, as a warrior has to defend his or her Self. An empowered soul has no need for defense, and is free to shine his or her light to its fullest. This week you have the opportunity to really notice the difference in these two qualities by observing whether you react or respond to the situations you encounter. A reaction is unconscious and fear-based, releasing the warrior.

A response is conscious, heartfelt and reveals empowerment.
