Aries and the Home
Good home life does not come about simply as a gift from the gods without our cooperation. The person who longs to win this particular gift must perform this labor of Hercules by making the home environment reflect the quality of love, a place from which to base all other activities. It is true that Arians, as a type, bring new ideas into this environment. They are not content with monotony in any phase of life, but introduce innovations to accomplish the daily tasks within all homes. They are persons who bring a gay bit of music, a touch of color and interest, to their own fireside. Their uplifting and stimulating quality steps up the general atmosphere of the most humble haven.
It is no use saying that the home offers no challenges, for no sooner do we possess our own, than we are confronted with many. In fact, the home is a pivot of many problems. It is true that we immediately associate difficulties in other phases of our lives with our homes, our families, and our own security. We wonder how the various labors of Hercules will affect our "foundation of life" when such problems arise. We long to improve our homes, to see them reflect our highest hopes and ideals. We long to have happiness therein, to see prosperity and peace dwell with us.
Arians may have to make a special effort to create an atmosphere of harmony in their homes for, active as they are, Arians sometimes have to learn to center their activities in the home itself, allowing them to expand only as they are so centered. It is true that the home is considered by astrologers as the beginning and end of life's dreams of successful living. Like the foundation of a mighty building, its base should be laid firmly upon individual character and integrity. Astrology teaches us that the nature of this zone of life is productive, pliable, receptive, and formative. Arians have the magic touch necessary to cause this most valued possession to reflect their own inner peace, prosperity and happiness.
