“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been” – Rainer Maria Rilke
Today we celebrate the Spring Equinox – a time when day and night are about equal length as the Sun passes directly above the equator. This also officially kicks off the start of the astrological new year and the Sun’s ingress into pioneering Aries (at 11:33 am).
The life-giving Sun, which represents our identity and the basic urge to be, is said to be exalted in the “I Am” sign of Aries the Ram – meaning it is deemed to be the prime locale for the Sun to exuberantly shine and do its thing. The sudden re-emergence of the burgeoning life force in nature during the springtime, when everything is abloom, is thought to mirror the vast creative ability of Aries to manifest its desires in the outside world.
Mars-ruled Aries, the first of the fire signs, signifies energy that is initiating, spontaneous, brave, and courageous. Likewise, Aries season is the time when we are strongly encouraged to get the ball rolling with new projects, fresh starts, prolifically planting seeds of intention.
“Never underestimate the power you have to take your life in a new direction.” – Germany Kent
On another level, the Spring Equinox itself – with its equal amount of light and dark – is perceived to be a good time to reset the balance of things in our own lives so as to make them more enjoyable and fulfilling.
“Life is a tightrope walk. One has to balance the do’s and don’ts.” – Haresh Sippy

On This Day in History: On March 20, 1969, Beatle John Lennon married Japanese artist and musician Yoko Ono in Gibraltar.
Astrologically, that day, romantic Venus, solidifying Saturn, and the nurturing Moon were all conjunct in trailblazing Aries. Expansive Jupiter and unconventional Uranus were also tightly conjunct in matrimonial Libra.
A few days after John and Yoko tied the knot – and while they were still on their honeymoon – the pair invited members of the press to join them in their honeymoon suite at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel to protest the Vietnam War (in bed) and preach world peace.
“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.” – John Lennon
Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.
