Sun Aries or Ascendant Aries, R2P or R2S: (Plus Constellationally Transmitted R1 and R7): (úÄis, in general, is a somewhat contradictory indication. No signiû£cant mutual reinforcement of ray and astrological energies emerges either constellationally or through the rays usually considered as transmitted through the ruling planets. A rather weak reinforcement may be considered as present because the second ray is transmitted through the Sun, the ruler of the second decanate of Aries. Also, second ray Jupiter is a co-ruler of the û£rst decanate {in esoteric, counter-clockwise order} and the third decanate {in exoteric, clockwise order}. Perhaps the exaltation of the Sun in Aries may, indeed, reinforce second ray qualities, for those with this combination. úÄe ¡§Ram¡¨ must become the sacriû£cial ¡§Lamb of God¡¨, slain, for the sake of oth-ers, ¡§from the foundation of the world¡¨. úÄe exaltation of the Sun can be likened to the Resur-rection Initiation {the seventh}, in which the second ray energies of Love-Wisdom dominate. Perhaps, considering the sum of all the various sub-inû¤uences, we could say that the overall R2 reinforcement is mild.)
A. (Selû£sh, Self-Centered or Self-Serving Human Being):
1. úÄe naive narcissism of the selû£sh, self-centered Aries person combines with the permissive indulgence induced within the insufficiently spiritual-ized personality by the second ray. (úÄese undesirable qualities would be in the nature of a relapse or reversion to a formerly bound condition, as it is not possible to have a û£rst or second ray personality unless one is at least an aspirant. úÄe û£rst or second ray may, however, enter the personality by other lines of inû¤uence.)
2. Naive disregard of boundaries. One who ¡§cannot contain¡¨ himself.
3. Not knowing where one belongs. (Saturn too weak).
4. Allowing oneself any whim or pleasure.
5. Promiscuous¡Xtoo eagerly affiliative. Indiscriminately rushing into attach-ment: ¡§Let form again be sought¡¨. úÄe ¡¥seeding¡¦ tendency expressed through lower love.
6. Shameless and unrestrained ¡§love of being loved¡¨.
7. Overestimation. ¡§Biting off more than one can chew¡¨.
8. úÄinking ¡§too big¡¨, too inclusively.
9. Over-expenditure of personal energies. Proû¤igacy.
10. Indiscriminately active;
11. Unreasoning positivity. Foolishly hopeful expectation.
12. Conû¤icts between approach and avoidance. Desiring to rush in and yet being afraid of the consequences due to second ray fear of impact.

1. Eagerness for the new, characteristic of the advancing Aries individual combines with the naturally expansive and inclusive attitude induced within the spiritually unfolding personality by the second ray.
2. Exuberant positivity. Believing in the limitless potential of the human be-ing.
3. A winning optimism. úÄe glass is always ¡§half-full¡¨. Life is positive and invites immediate participation.
4. ¡§Good spirits¡¨. Jaunty cheerfulness.
5. Trustingly embracing new experiences. A strong sense of the ¡§goodness of life¡¨.
6. Sometimes caught between sensitivity (second ray) and the urge to rush forward (Aries).
7. Liberal expenditure of energy.
8. Generously outgoing giving of oneself.
9. ¡§Hope springs eternal in the human breast¡¨.
10. úÄe ¡§new¡¨ is always better than the ¡§old¡¨.
11. A readiness to ¡§forgive and forget¡¨ and thus move forward into the fu-ture.
12. On the Path of Discipleship: eagerness for the light.
13. On the Path of Discipleship: the rising (Aries) of the Christ Force (second ray).
14. On the Path of Discipleship: recognition that love renews all experience.
15. On the Path of Discipleship: holding the possibility of the upliû@ment and redemption of all beings. úÄe attitude that everyone always has a chance to be restored.
C (Advanced Disciple; the Initiate): [Additionally, where relevant, combine Ascendant Sign, Aries, with the second ray as either the ray of the personality or soul. For initiates under monadic impression and on the second ray in one of their periodical vehicles, if the point opposite the Sun Sign is in Aries, it may be considered here]
1. A dynamic radiation of the Life Aspect characteristic the soul-infused disciple/initiate born in or under the sign Aries, combines with a great positivity induced within the soul or spiritualized personality by the second ray.
3. Great generosity of spirit/soul.
4. Willingly undertaking initiatives of love.
5. First to sacriû£ce for reasons of love.
6. úÄe thrill of loving-being poured forth from the heavenly worlds¡Xregard-less of circumstances and conditions.

12. Loving all unconditionally. Seeing all united within a state of being.
13. Love as the cause of resurrection into life.
Ray Lord Names Which May Apply To úÄis Combination
1. úÄe Displayer of Glory
2. úÄe Light Bringer
3. úÄe Son of God Incarnate
4. úÄe Cosmic Christ
Because Aries is the sign/constellation through which the û£rst ray is expressing itself most powerfully at this time, its relationships to the second ray are only indirect. A few of the Names of the Second Ray Lord may apply to this combination of energies.
