We Didn't Start the Fire

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it
We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it
We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it
We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it
We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
But when we are gone
Will it still burn on, and on, and on, and on...

~ Sheep Magic ~

Enter the sheep - Ram and Ewe! It is unfortunate that the common connotation of "acting like sheep" refers only to the herd instinct.

The people of Aries have rather more to them than that!

As we move from Pisces into the Spring Equinox, some of us remember that until September 14, 1752, we Americans still celebrated the New Year of the Old Religion on March 21st. In 1752 the Gregorian Chant of Days was adopted by King George III, and we began to think the year began in January.

The members of the Old Religion, the Wise Ones, know better. Aries begins with the Vernal Equinox, the New Year of Nature. This is the time to witness the return of Mother Herta to her season of fecundity and rebirth.

Let us dance and sing together as we celebrate the ritual of spring while the world is born again.

Aries is the time to discover once again that we are alive! The Aries Divine Influence is "I AM". This may also be considered as: "I LIVE". In Aries, reincarnation is self-evident as all the world is reborn. And each year we feel in ourselves this re-affirmation: "I AM".

All nature teaches reincarnation as everything comes to life once again.

Rene Descartes, a Wise Man of the early 17th Century, began his great philosophical system with the assertion: "Cogito ergo sum". "I think, therefore, I AM!" A simpler statement of wisdom cannot be imagined. He surely must have been aware that our mere ability to utter the words of the first Divine Influence "I AM" proves not only that we think, but that we ARE.

We are -- because we think; and because we think -- we are. There is no more basic assertion in philosophy than "I AM". Because the Creators, our Celestial Father and Mother thought of us, creatively, here we are! We too, are free to think, even as They did. And as we think, so it will be. This process of creativity through thought is the basic premise of all magical practice. The Wise Ones know that it begins with the realization - "I AM"!

KEY To Understanding ARIES: WILL POWER

Aries people are noted for their will power. Too often we come to think of will power as the thing which grandmother said we didn't have. Then we continued to hear her tell us that we could do anything IF we just had the will power. Perhaps everyone's grandmother was an Aries Person.

Aries people are noted for their will power. In a way, of course, she was right, for the human will is indomitable. "Where there is a will, there is a way," goes an old wisdom saying. Will Power is the power of desire. The psychologist talks of it as motivation, but simply, when the desire is there, we see the power of the will.

THE MESSAGE OF ARIES: Wake Up and Live! Enjoy life! Be Happy!

The real meaning of Aries is the message of reincarnation - Wake up and live! People are that they might have Joy.

Most folks are not aware. They are not aware that they dwell in a waking dream state, passing in a stupor past the multitude of images and shadows that they perceive as life. "BE AWARE" - says Aries - be an active force in the creative processes that recreate the world each moment of each day.

Emerson says that if you would have the power, DO THE THING. Aries says to us that if we want to do something - just do it!

RULER OF ARIES: MARS, the planet of ACTION
Command of Mars: “DO IT NOW!”

Mars, with his penchant for action and for doing, is what gives Aries people all their will power. He tells us that if you want to be happy, you need to get happy now. Those who are Aware know that all Real Life exists only in the present. This is to say that Life is right now, and DOING IT NOW is the happy way to live.

You may have been happy before but that moment is gone. You can't be happy in the future, for the future is not here yet. The only time to be happy is the only time in which you can possibly be -- NOW. Make up your mind to simply "DO IT NOW" and be happy doing it. Then Mars will smile upon you. You will have gotten His message.

A person asked Buddha:
“Are you a God?”
Buddha’s reply was “No.”
“Are you an Angel?”
“No.”
“Then what are you?”
“I Am Awake.”
