Aries (March 21st to April 19th)

Last week, I made a clear distinction between freedom and being carefree. You’re dealing with similar themes this week, Aries, but there’s a fresher psychological layer to explore here. As the sign that have action and self-determination, there’s something else you fear on a deeper level than inaction and losing the ability to make your own decisions: it’s chaos. Chaos doesn’t make it nearly impossible to have freedom, because you have no idea what’s going to happen next.  And if you don’t know what’s going to happen next, then you don’t know what actions to take. It’s hard to feel you can attack when you don’t know what or where to attack. Chaos may surface in your life as emotional dramas and sudden changes that will remind you why order and discipline are necessary to feel autonomous and free. You don’t have to go overboard with the order bit, but don’t underestimate its importance.
