Another behind-week… I’m awful! Even my attempt at a list last week failed miserably! This week- determination. I have things planned, I have it organized… I just need to get it done. Technically now it’s already Wednesday morning. Later today I have another post showing my “Nail Art Wednesdays” from now on. But right now, I bring to you the nearly-week-late-again Aries look. I’m not going to blather on, because it’s late… I severely need sleep… And I have an ortho appointment in the morning. Oh the joy!

Aries (English pronunciation: /?e?.ri?z/; meaning “ram“) is the first astrological sign in the Zodiac, named for the constellation of Aries, called “The Ram” in Hellenistic tradition, after the golden ram that rescued Phrixos, taking him to the land of Colchis. Aries is ruled by the planet Mars. Being the first sign in the zodiac, Aries is associated with the astrological first house. In Western astrology, Aries is often considered a “masculine”, positive (extrovert) sign. It is also considered a fire sign, and is one of four cardinal signs. Birthstone is the Diamond or Aquamarine.
Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are called Arians or Ariens. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun enters Aries on the moment of vernal equinox by definition on March 21, leaving it on or about April 20. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly around April 15 and May 15. In western astrology, this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation as a result of the precession of the equinoxes.
In Hellenistic astrology, the constellation of Aries is associated with the golden ram of Greek mythology that rescued Phrixos, taking him to the land of Colchis. Phrixos sacrificed the ram to the gods and hung its skin in a temple, where it was known as the Golden Fleece.

Well, that’s it folks! Later today you have two posts coming up… One inspired by Thunderstorms that we’ve had up here, and the other will be my lovely nails…. Which I think I’ll do like this around Christmas time… You’ll see why, because I’m sure not telling now! And you simply can’t forget to go check out the gaw-jus Makeup Zombie’s post to see how she interpreted the look in her own way…
As for me… I’m headed to bed. I have Little Dude in his cone head forlornly looking at me like “Ma, we gonna cuddle up and sleep now, pleaaaaase??” I can’t deny him when he has those wide cute eyes… And this cone… Oh man, I feel bad! When he heals up, it’ll come off… But as long as he keeps tearing his back and tail scabs open, it’s staying on. And as for the other one… Yes, I mean Peeps… She’s in heat. Again. She’ll be getting spayed, don’t you worry. In the meantime, my sister loves to make her twitter, meowl, slink, meep, merp, uh-uh-uh-meowrrrr as often as she can. Don’t worry, kitteh does not get hurt in ze process… It’s kind of hilarious. Especially when she stretches up and grabs either my Dad or the Glamazon (my youngest sister) and meows at them like “Y U NO PAY ATTENSHUN TOO MEE?”. Perhaps I’ll film an episode tomorrow.
Would you wear a daring orange like Sunrise in Aries?
I also did realize, I skipped a sign last week. My Pisces look should have had Aries as the accent- not Taurus! WHOOPS! I am a blonde, after all ;)
