How to Read Your Aries Stellium

Every Aries stellium is going to play out a bit differently, and how it is expressed in your life will be dependent on the rest of your birth chart.

But, here are some steps that can get you going if you are interested in reading your stellium.

  1. First, figure out which planets are included. This will clue you in on which parts of your psyche are shaped by this fiery sign. And, it will tell you which areas of your mind and soul will be cooperating and blending together.
  2. Second, note which house or houses the planets of your Arian stellium sit in. The house(s) will report which parts of your life your Arian-flavored planets will filter through. Where in life will your strong ram be most evident?
  3. One other detail of your natal chart to check when reading your Aries stellium is any aspects made to the planets included. Aspects add more complexity, showing you what other planets elsewhere in your chart may be combining forces with your stellium. These aspects will either be friendly or hostile, depending on the angle made.

Transiting Aries Stellium

Your birth chart isn’t the only place where an Aries stellium can exist. A group of planets in the sign of the ram can also be found among the current, moving planets.

In astrology, the current and moving planets are referred to as transiting planets. These orbiting planets mingle with the signs, houses, and planets in your own birth chart and can usher in change and transitions in your life.

A transiting stellium in Aries can have the same effect on your life as it would if it were present in your natal chart, but with one major difference. Its effects are temporary and will only last as long as the stellium holds together. 

A transiting Aries stellium has the possibility of bringing about important changes, behaviors, and emotions, but its influence will lessen as the transiting planets involved begin to move out of Aries to interact with other areas of your birth chart.
