The 12 Days of Aries

The 16th century kabbalist Rav Isaac Luria (the Ari) teaches that each of the first 12 days of Aries corresponds to and directly influences each of the 12 months of the year.

For example, day one of Aries corresponds to the month of Aries, day two to Taurus, day three to Gemini, and so on. Why is this important to know? This is one of those rare windows in time when we have the ability to carve out our destiny. Our actions and reactions during the first 12 days of Aries can play a huge part in determining what follows in the next 12 months. 

Each of the first 12 days of Aries presents you with an opportunity to overcome whatever it is that normally blocks you from receiving the fulfillment you desire – and deserve. How you respond to the tests of the first 12 days affects the outcome of how you will experience the coming year. In general, be as proactive as possible, and familiarize yourself with the types of challenges you might be facing – after all, forewarned is forearmed. 

Here are some mantras, tips, and meditations to help you make the most of your first 12 days of Aries!
