The Aries Musician: The Fire Starter

Aries as Creator

You’re a trailblazer, Aries. Your ideas come quick and steady. When a new idea comes to mind, you’re not afraid to try it – no matter how strange it might seem to others. In fact, the riskier and more unique the idea, the more you like it and want to try it. Bravery, individuality, and dynamism define your creative life. Flint and steel come together naturally in you to create a spark, but you are challenged with keeping the flame going. You’re better at starting a task than you are at finishing it. You have a low threshold for boredom and small tasks are not interesting to you. Writing and perfecting music can be tiresome. When you find yourself stalled by boredom, think big and go all in. Start a fire in your life – figuratively or literally. Aries rarely set a goal that they don’t achieve.

Aries as Bandmate

You don’t mind being a solo act. You like to be in charge, and others can rarely keep up with your dynamic pace and unique ideas. When you are in a band situation, you like to be with a diverse group of people to get varying perspectives. Aries get bored easily, so you like to surround yourself with a cast of interesting characters. Aries are particularly tolerant and respectful of differences. You work best with bandmates who are energetic and brave, like yourself (Libra and Leo bandmates are the best for you). Your warmth and openness makes you an easy communicator, but your honesty – at times tactless – can create rifts in relationships. Aries who feel restricted or like they are not in control are likely to get angry. If you’re not careful, you can act impatiently and selfishly, leaving your bandmates in the dust.

Aries as Performer

Performance is where the fun is at for Aries. Full of youthful strength and energy (regardless of your age), your performances are vibrant, energetic, and always-changing. You like to move powerfully with the music. Be careful, though! Aries are prone to head injuries – so watch where you step. Aries are also prone to headaches, which can put a major damper on a performance. Eating iron-rich foods can help with this tendency towards headaches. Your performances are unique and brave, just like you. You like entertaining people, but you take offense easily. Any criticism you’re met with won’t stop you, though; because of your stubbornness, it will just inspire you to more action.

Aries in the Music Business

You thrive in the business-side of music. Your strengths include strong organizational skills, the ability to successfully multi-task, and to get a lot done very quickly. Your impatience, stubbornness, and aggression work well in the business setting – you know what you want and how to get it, and you won’t take “no” for an answer. Competition is a main motivator for you, and the music business is full of competition. Aries are willing to work hard for what they want, but be careful to battle any sense of entitlement. You like to spend money and are often present-focused. Watch out for sour deals that sound good at first but that are likely to bite you in the end. Keep your head down and focused on your goals, and you’ll be sure to achieve them.

Aries in the Music Scene

You’re warm, vibrant, and exciting. You surround yourself with a large number of acquaintances. You’re a fire that people want to be near. You exude confidence and self-assurance. Your honesty can be refreshing (when not impatient and tactless), and people like talking with you. However, your sense of competition can often lead to bossiness and aggressiveness, and in these cases, you may be considered ruthless. Your task is to support others in being as confident and vibrant as you.

Hey, I’m no astrologist! I don’t know much about astrology. I don’t know what truth – if any – astrology holds. However, I’m intrigued by this kind of fantastical, mystical thing (I’m a Pisces, after all)! Take this for what it’s worth: I read through a bunch of astrology content related to each sign, compiled what I thought was relevant to music, creativity, and the music business, and created this content! I hope it’s entertaining or even helpful! Be well!
