Who is in charge? If you ask any Aries they will tell you they are in charge. They aren’t wrong. Aries typically make fantastic leaders. So where does the problem lie? The problem lies in the question. Does there need to be one leader or can there be a group of leaders, advisors, and a support team to accomplish a certain objective? There are plenty of problems to solve so why do we keep operating as though one person is going to clear them all.
Patriarchal power dynamics (let’s hope, of the past) focus on the “I” rather than the “We.” Being in power is overrated, temporary, a constant struggle, and very, three (or maybe more) years ago. Antiquated, high contrast power dynamics are embedded in our culture and the languages we speak every day. Let’s not forget, there is magic in words. Spelling. Get the joke? It isn’t until we start looking closely at the way we act, speak, and work with one another and reflect on the history of where our behaviours come from, that real progress can be made.

Tarot Card: The Chariot
Determination is an awesome trait. The statuesque chariot sees their vision on the horizon and charges forward. They do not question whether they are going to succeed or not. They know they will. The essence of this card is that of a wartime chariot, not a royal chariot. These chariots run in packs and work together with each individual holding their reins to accomplish a shared vision when in battle. This brings us to the deeper question of 'who sent you into battle'? Since the chariot was invented by the Egyptians and is drawn by two sphinxes, I would say your mission is divinely guided.
