Today is the first day of Spring and this fellow Aries is excited. Winter was snowy and slushy and bitterly cold. Folks hibernated like bears and shacked up with love ones they met when bundled up (myself included). But now those days are behind us. Now it is the time for chirping birds, sunny days, late sunsets, evening walks down the Upper West Side and bar stops at the South Street Seaport. And most importantly, Spring is the time to celebrate all the dear Aries that have blessed our liiiiiives!
From March 21th – April 19th, Aries will swig shots in celebration of another year of birth. Small and big and wide and slender rams will plot a soirée where people and booze will be plentiful and dancing will be mandatory…or else (we Aries are quiet demanding). Our fellow zodiac friends will be honored to join in the festivities, secretly wishing they themselves were Mars natives (or at least that’s what I tell myself). And why wouldn’t they want to be? Aries are great at celebrating themselves! I call my birthday The Sujeiry National Holiday and take the day off to ensure that coworkers and loved ones alike know the severity of forgetting my day of birth. You wouldn’t forget Dr. Martin Luther Kings birthday, would you?
No, I didn’t think so.
Don’t get me wrong. There is more to an Aries than dynamic chispa, big smiles, and contagious magnetism. Sure, we know how to party and evoke joy in those around us, but we are also inflexible, impatient, have trouble finishing projects, easily distracted, innately insecure, and oh-so very possessive. What’s mine is mine, and all you other zodiac signs better remember that!
Now back to the glorious character traits of Aries. We are:
- Fiery (this makes for great arguments and even better make-up sex)
- Passionate (see above)
- Great leaders
- Honest (what you see is really what you get)
And so much more!
So don’t only welcome spring by sipping on good spirits and socializing with renewed New Yorkers. Call an Aries and thank them for their hotness. Wish an Aries a Happy Birthday at midnight. Bow down to an Aries to demonstrate what a great honor it is to be in their incandescent presence. If you don’t the birds may cease their chirping (they are avid Aries fans), the sun will never rise, and you may not get invited to our birthday parties.
That would be like winter all over again!
