The Sun shifts into Aries this morning marking the Spring Equinox. The Sun has moved halfway from where it was at Winter Solstice in December, and in 3 months will arrive at Summer Solstice in June. This is the beginning of Spring. You may have started to notice more birds and wildlife in your day to day experience, and more flowers and trees starting to bloom. It feels like new birth is happening all around.
Aries, this is the 1st zodiac sign, which would imply it is the beginning, the start. In the pagan calendar, this is the NEW YEAR- not in the cold of winter as we celebrated in the Northern Hemisphere, in the season of Capricorn. Aries is FIRE, it is the raw and purest form of passion. Just as the strike of a match explodes into a spark, Aries ignites. In a split second, Aries follows the explosion, bursting into life. With boundless courage and setting aside fear, it is the WARRIOR. Aries responds to the call in an instant, without a lot of forethought. For in Tarot, we associate it with the FOOL.
Lately we have been in awareness of the wound we carry with the Sun in Pisces right next to Chiron. We are moving into Aries now, still within sight of the wound, but feeling the strength to move forward with courage.
Aries is Cardinal energy and we associate that mode with "starting the engines" and initiation. Cardinal signs begin and get things rolling. The 4 cardinal signs reflect pivotal moments in the zodiac- equinoxes and solstices.
We find Mars in Capricorn, another Cardinal Sign, in square or tension to Aries. Mars rules Aries and yet, is asking for Aries to cool it's jets a bit and have some sort of plan. Capricorn admires the courage and passion of Aries, but requests it not just go full steam ahead. Capricorn wants to be productive, much like Aries, however as it is an Earth Sign with some experience under it's belt, it is wise to the value of thinking things through.
As you embark on your own journey with the Aries Sun, what is it that you want to start? What do you want to initiate with all your passion , while still coming up with a strategic plan of action? Dig deep and see what fires are burning from within, just ready to take the risk and light up your world...be courageous and brave!
