The Sun (the ego) enters pioneering Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, at 1:32 pm EDT.   The Sun’s foray into Aries also officially marks the Vernal Equinox.  The Sun’s passage through this sign is a fitting time for us to undertake fresh starts for ourselves.  Aries is a masterful sign of action.  We also get energetic assistance here from Mars, the ruler of Aries,  which is gaining strength in creative Leo after turning direct in that sign on March 10th. The Sun trines Mars today.

Restless Aries Mercury (ideas) is also square to passionate Pluto (control).  This can add an intensity to our speech and even an obsessive quality to our thinking, which we need to be mindful of.  Also, when we push hot-button issues today, there are definite consequences.  We can also encounter others who are very fanatical and unflinching in their ideas, opinions.  There can additionally be a tendency to manipulate facts to gain an edge or unfair advantage.  (With Mercury square Pluto in Capricorn, ruling govt, no telling what kind of mental shenanigans, manipulations will be playing out  in Washington DC ahead of the Health Care vote on Sunday!)

Moon is in self-indulgent, earthy Taurus. Good for communing with nature, attending to spring yard work.  Moon enters curious Gemini at 8:28pm EDT at which point the pace around us quickens.

Famous persons born on this day: Canadian Politician Brian Mulroney, Actress Tanya Boyd, Gold Medal Skier Isolde Kostner, Politician John Ehrlichman

Memorable event in history on this date: March 20, 1969 – Beatle John Lennon married Yoko Ono in Gibraltar.  In their wedding chart, Venus, the planet of love and marriage, was in fiery, adventurous Aries conjoined with dutiful Saturn.  Venus-Saturn ties indicate deep “karmic relationships” and they usually signify longevity. Of course, John’s untimely death was a tragedy, but Yoko never remarried. She has always held John’s spirit close to her heart, almost as if he never left her. She has also helped to keep his wondrous memory alive for many of us through her noble dedication to his legacy.

The Sun was also exactly trine (harmonious) spiritual, idealistic Neptune in their wedding chart. That suggested the marriage would always have a mystical, otherworldly quality about it.

“When people get cynical about love, they should look at us [Yoko and John Lennon] and see it is possible.” Yoko Ono.

On a personal note: I am hoping that I will be able to continue now with my daily horoscope blog which I had to put on hiatus earlier this week.  I appreciate your being here.

Peace and love, everyone.  Enjoy your day!
