Meaning, Messages & Magic

Ram symbolizes determination, power, and leadership.   Ram does not fear failure, knowing that it’s a necessary training ground for greater things to come.   As you take charge in your own life you will inspire others to get out of their comfort zone and live a more unintimidated life.   Ram encourages you to exercise your thirst for knowledge, imagination, and curiosity so it doesn’t atrophy.   Hold high standards for yourself without falling into perfectionism. Stay focused and steadfast on your path. Honoring where your abilities lie in the moment as you strive to reach higher.   When you find yourself in new circumstances, bravely take action without hesitation because opportunities can disappear quickly.

Rams are excellent climbers with exquisite balance. Could practicing your physical climbing abilities also help you climb to the top in your career?

Rams literally stand their ground against others by crashing their horns together when it comes to their territory or mate. This is not being stubborn. This is showing strength and bravery to stand up for yourself, priorities, and beliefs. In which areas of your life could you take a stronger stance?

I want to hear about your Ram experiences. What stories or dreams have you had? Please share and join in the conversation below!


  1. Tanya Casteel

    During a meditation, a Ram started a fire in the sky by swirling one of its curly horns around in a cloud. It was not a destructive fire, but a motivating one. It was a sign to get things started with no excuses. Water filled clouds didn’t deter this Ram from creating something new.

    Ram to me is coming to my life where I feel very weak and vulnerable. In fact prior to Ram appearing I had no interest at all in working with him. Even now, I am very cautious and skitty about working with Him, but I trust that he is here for a reason.

    For someone like me who is so ‘venus’ this animal of ‘mars’ is where my greatest challenge is. So he is not my spirit animal as a deep friend, but as the most awkward travelling companion I could have ! But I know I will be greater for it.

      Yes, I too feel a very strong Mars energy from Ram. Sounds like he is bringing you some beautiful growth and balance opportunities. I love hearing that you’re embracing and trusting this new challenging relationship. Ram is a strong ally and sometimes we all need some tough love.

    I was studying and writing about The Emperor card in the Ryder Waite Smith deck. His stone throne is covered with carved rams. On each arm and on the back of the chair.
    I found your writing about The Ram because I wanted to know more about what they symbolize in the tarot.

    It was challenging to see this card today and feel positively about the Emperor energy. The warrior stance, the competition, the armoring. Needing to own everything, yet being alone out in the desert.

    It’s all that I want to let go of. Yet, I do love my fierceness. And my tenacity. The energy of my Capricorn moon. The quality of rms where they can climb the highest mountain and stand right on the cliff side as I saw them do in Montana years ago.

    I want to own this energy more, I want to be more comfortable with holding boundaries.

    Thank you for the space to reflect on this.
