Today the Sun enters Aries at 9:19 pm PDT. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and signals the beginning of a new year on the astrological calendar. As we leave Pisces behind, we say good bye to winter and step into spring. Aries is one of the cardinal signs along with Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. When we begin each cardinal sign on the astrological calendar, we begin a new season on the traditional calendar.
Take note that while The Sun goes into Aries on the 19th in the Pacific, Mountain and Central time zones, the east coast has the Sun in Aries on the 20th, as does Europe. This is why it is important not to assume or generalize the unofficial dates when the Sun changes signs. Knowing the time one is born is critical when calculating as astrological chart. Depending on where one lives in the world, some babies born today will be Pisces, while those born later will be Aries.
The March equinox signals the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, the earliest spring since 1896 and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. It marks that special moment when the sun crosses the celestial equator going from south to north. In 2016, this equinox arrives on March 19 at 9:30 p.m. PDT.
If you are an Aries, focus on making fresh starts and leave the past behind. When the Sun enters Mars rules fire sign Aries we are energized and prone to action. During the first week of April, the Sun is sitting in very favorable position with Saturn and Uranus. What does offer? The opportunity to break the mold and be self-expressive.
Stay tuned, there is a full moon next week!
