The ram makes its home on the steep cliffs and rocky terrain of a mountainside leaping from boulder to boulder and cliff to cliff making it a symbol of leadership and determination. The ram teaches us to jump boldly and confidently into our new endeavors knowing we have all we need to succeed. The ram stands majestic as a natural leader whilst it surveys its surroundings emoting power and presence. The Ram is ever vigilant and always ready to do battle even on unsteady ground. The ram should remind you to fill your heart with courage as you step into the next chapter in your life. You are prepared. *Aries Zodiac Sign.
