Welcome back, Persephone!
The Sun blazes into fiery Aries on March 20th, marking the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of a brand new Astrological year!
Today, Light and Dark exist in sacred balance. After this point, the days will get longer and the nights will get shorter until the Summer Solstice on June 21st, when the pattern will reverse.
“And so the spring buds burst, and so I gaze,
And so the blossoms fall, and so my days …”
As we shift out of the soft, ethereal energy of Pisces, and into the fearless, action realm of Aries, we’re likely to be seeking out things that are new, fun and different.
We now have an excess of Fire energy. At this time, we can become more impulsive, direct and uncomplicated in our needs, but the tendency to be a bit
of an asshole short-sighted and selfish is highly possible.
As the first sign of the Zodiac, Aries’ main concern is for number one…it’s all about me, myself and I –“Let’s talk about me!” “Remember me?” “Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you about me!”
