Aries Cryptic #17

Here's this month's cryptic, with a bit of a twist. There's a slight theme that will be revealed to you as you solve the puzzle. This kind of block cryptic with an added theme is something that I associate with The Nation cryptics written by Joshua Kosman and Henri Picciotto, so consider this to be a tribute to that form. Hope you enjoy!

Aries Throwback - "Stairing Contest"

For this month's Throwback, we're going back all the way to February 2017 for this easy/medium puzzle. It was originally called "Move Your Feet," but I've retitled it "Stairing Contest." Hope you enjoy!
