We started to feel the temps rise this past Sunday, March 20. Not only is this the date of the equinox, but it’s also when the zodiac calendar does its annual reset as the Sun heads into fiery Aries, starting a fresh solar cycle. (Aries is the first sign of the twelve.) Our universal spring awakening has begun!
With the Sun in the Ram’s realm until April 20, we have four weeks to make fresh starts, plant seeds, take bold initiatives. Originality and authenticity score huge points now. Instead of playing follow the leader, blaze a maverick’s trail. Those unapologetically original moves—plus a side of swagger—will bring the applause.
With the Sun entering Aries for the next four weeks, we tend to act first and think later. We are more aware of our personal goals and we feel a strong urge to move forward, get things done, move closer to our goals. We are quite aware of our own gut instincts and where we are heading. It’s a great time both for leading others and for carving out our own path.
In Aries, the Sun is enthusiastic and spontaneous. We are motivated by the desire to conquer. We are more impulsive, and have the urge to initiate. Aries is a sign that bounces back quickly–there is little shame with Aries. It is brave and pioneering, and somewhat innocent. We are direct and rather uncomplicated in our needs, but we can also be short-sighted and lack the desire to plan ahead.
