The Sun just entered the sign of Aries while crossing the celestial equator from South to North which marks the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the Astrological New Year.
Happy Spring Equinox!
We are just about done with the Pisces season as the Sun entered the sign of Aries early this morning. Mercury will follow late Monday evening and Venus lingers in the borderless waters of Pisces until the 6th of April.
Pisces to Aries is an interesting transition. Mars is the ruler of both the last decan of Pisces and the first decan of Aries revealing the impetuousness of life. This is the transition from the primal and life-giving waters of chaos to the birth canal of existence. The process of creation from the immaterial to the tangible when the soul finds a body.
The sign of Pisces indicates the end of Winter when we simultaneously feel drained from the sedentary winter-life but hopeful for the return of the light. We can feel disconnected from our bodies but also enlightened by the many hours of darkness spent connecting to our inner reality.
Aries signals the beginning of Spring, the renewal of life and the power contained in a seed. The Sun is happy here and everyone rejoices for the warmth and the light regenerates body and spirit.
