Created in partnership with Frederique’s Choice
Solar calendar reset! From March 19-April 20, the Sun is visiting Aries, the zodiac’s very first sign. Spring kicks off under the influence of this fire sign, symbolized by the headstrong and driven Ram. No matter what your zodiac sign is, everyone is affected by the overarching Aries themes, which include courage, adventure, determination, independence and a desire to do things YOUR way.
In that spirit, we’ve joined forces with iconic Dutch model, TV personality/producer and Virgo flower connoisseur Frederique van der Wal, creator of Frederique’s Choice and host of the FYI show Homegrown Makeover. Frederique channeled her passions for astrology AND flowers into her monthly Horoscope Bouquets, customized with gorgeous blooms that magnify the unique energy of each zodiac sign.

Here are 5 ways to maximize the energy of Aries season:
1. Trust in the unknown.
The gift of Aries energy is its positivity—a willingness to trust and have faith even in with zero supporting evidence. Aries people BELIEVE in themselves intrinsically, and during this month, we can tap into that same optimism. Some might call if foolish, but where has cynicism and jadedness ever gotten us? Nowhere too rewarding, that’s for sure. Snapdragons in the Aries bouquet symbolize the bountiful and abundant energy of this season. Our inner doubters might say that “seeing is believing,” but during Aries season, “believing is seeing.”
2. Take initiative.
You ever notice how nobody ever wants to be “first”—at least, when it require the risk of exposure? During Aries season, dare to be the first one to speak in the meeting, raise your hand, ask a “dumb” question (which will probably turn out to be the same one everyone is thinking!). Make the first move with love or work. Invite a colleague or new acquaintance out for lunch. DON’T make small talk. The true red roses in the Aries bouquet were added to fuel your courageous instincts. Dare to be the boldest hue of you.
3. Tap your adventurous spirit.
Fearless Aries is the zodiac’s daredevil, and this month we are all encouraged to leap without looking. What’s on your bucket list that you could do NOW? Even if you take one step toward it (for example, starting a fund for your dream vacation or home, and putting a small amount in it each week), dare to believe it’s possible. The fire-red spray roses in the Aries bouquet were chosen for their brightness, to enhance your adventurous spirit and awaken the energy of courage. Don’t let fear stop you from living your life!
4. Let yourself shine.
Fearless Aries is the sign of the solo star, unafraid of being in the spotlight or receiving accolades. Any why shouldn’t you be praised for your accomplishments and talents? The seeded eucalyptus and pink wax flowers in the Aries bouquet add that extras Aries spark and sparkle. So pass on that slice of humble pie and flaunt your charisma (we all have it). As Marianne Williamson said, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate…[but] that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” Amen to that!
5. Unleash your inner child.
Still dealing with a seasonal slump? Trouble getting motivated? Take control and consciously dial up the energy by doing something childlike, unleashed and silly. Aries is NOT a self-conscious sign, so lose the “what would they think of me?” cares and let your inner kid emerg. Hop on a bike, a scooter or a skateboard. Turn on the music and have a dance party. Find a trampoline to jump on. You can look in the mirror and leap up and down—really! Your brain won’t know the difference between fake and real excitement, and will pump out the feel-good chemicals.
