an aries moon is fiery and often experiences a short temper. you are passionate, determined, and maybe a bit aggressive at times. aries moons are impulsive, and must be careful to not unintentionally bowl over the emotions of others. luckily, you’re unlikely to dwell on things or hold a grudge - who’s got time for that with so many exciting things to experience??

the aries shawl is fiery red, with a no-nonsense triangle construction and all-over texture finished off with a clean i-cord bind-off.
