And what you should snack on while listening…
Turn it up and let’s go! It’s Aries season! Here is your specially curated playlist to fuel this outgoing, spontaneous. Aries is the first of the 12 zodiac signs and is often referred to as the “youngest” sign. Represented by the Ram, Aries is a fire sign ruled by Mars - the planet of energy, action, and aggression. This explains their reputation for being fiery, spontaneous, a bit unpredictable, and fierce! Don’t let these adjectives scare you though, Aries make some of the most loyal and fun friends around. You’ll often find them at the head of the pack, making decisions in a split second and bringing the fun with them. If you want a party buddy, Aries is your go-to! We want to set the scene for you with suggestions of when to listen, where to listen, and what 100% organic vegan, plant based, gluten free, and kosher snacks to enjoy so you can channel that Aries energy.
Set the Scene
When: To be true to Aries energy, don’t wait to have fun. We suggest using this as a morning pump up so you can take on the day with the ferocity and high energy of this youthful fire sign. Grab fellow fire signs Leo and Sagittarius to get the party started!
Where: Aries is not shy or nervous about being perceived. Feel free to turn this up on your morning commute, maybe even inspiring some of the more subdued and serious signs (looking at you Virgo and Capricorn) to let go a little.
What (to eat): As a fire sign, Aries is not at all timid. We suggest spicing anything and everything up with our homemade Organic Chili Oil so you can feel the heat! Cool down by following it up with an Organic Acai Dragonfruit Bowl.
Aries Fun Fact: Aries is associated with the head, eyes, adrenals, and blood pressure - makes sense when you consider Aries is also ruled by Mars, the planet most associated with war and aggression! Support healthy adrenal function with leafy greens and colorful vegetables, perhaps a Raw Juicery G3 Live juice or out Organic Greens Smoothie! Keep that blood pressure down too - a diet rich with plant protein and free of inflammatory artificial sugars and animal products should do the trick.
Activated Aries Playlist
1. Bad Girls by M.I.A.: With the opening line “Live fast, die young, bad girls do it well”, this song is nothing less than an Aries anthem. Aries has a reputation for being unstoppable, bold, determined, and a bit reckless. Aries is not one to back down from a debate (or fight), and this song serves as the perfect track to back it up.
2. Edge Of Glory: Aries Queen, Stefani Germanotta (aka Lady Gaga), has a catalog full of bold, unstoppable, energetic tracks. “Edge Of Glory”, a song that’s become nothing short of a cultural phenomenon since its release in 2011, is certainly no exception. Strong, energetic, confident, an epic and inspiring party track…truly Aries behavior.
3. No More Tears (Enough is Enough) by Donna Summer & Barbara Streisand: Though not necessarily associated with soft romance, Aries does have a pension for passionate and fiery love affairs. This iconic song by two of our most legendary songstresses starts out sweetly enough (like the beginning of many love stories), but quickly ramps up to become a confident declaration of independence and courage that any Aries could get behind.
4. These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ by Nancy Sinatra: Memorable, impactful, confident, and truly sassy, this classic by Nancy Sinatra has some seriously strong Aries energy. In this song, Sinatra is letting this man know it will be her, not him, doing the walking.
5. Golden by Jill Scott: Recently coined “Jilly from Philly” by Beyoncé, North Philly native and Temple alum Jill Scott is a hometown hero! Mixing R&B, jazz, spoken word, hip hop and even opera, Jill Scott is an artist and vocalist Philly is very proud of. ‘Golden’ is one of Scott’s biggest hits and it also hits on her Aries sun (Scott celebrates her birthday on April 4th!) with lyrics like “ I'm taking my own freedom. Putting it in my song. Singing loud and strong”
Get out there, be bold, live your life like it’s golden and take on the world like a true Aries! Want more Aries grooves? Check out our full Aries Playlist on Spotify!
