Welcome to Aries Season, which is also the first day of Spring and the beginning of the Astrological New Year!
The Cosmic quality of the time finds our ever-turning Universe “springing” into action with the ingress of Aries cardinal (initiatory) fire element energy. This sign of the Zodiac is ever ready to break new ground, to begin new ventures and rather than dreaming (Pisces) of a better world, it may be time to go after what is desired now.
Aries is “ruled” by the planet Mars, which requires us to perhaps begin a personal quest now. What is it that you want? What do you “burn” for? How do you go about getting it? These are Mars functions.
Where you find Aries and Mars in your Natal chart is where you are receiving the Sun’s “light” of awareness now. In addition, we will have Jupiter visiting Aries this year from May 11, through October 28th and then back again at our Winter Solstice- through much of 2023.
It's time to inspire yourself- towards bravery, healthy self- oriented determination, developing the courage to begin aspects of your life again, to renew yourself in the metaphorical cauldron of regeneration.
In the chart of our Equinox, we have three planets in Aquarius and three in Pisces, Mars and Venus are still conjoined in the sign of the water bearer, and Mercury merges with Jupiter in Pisces. There is hope in this new dawn; with the participation of the many, the understanding that compassion and empathy connect us rather than subsume or deny our individual worth. We may see a pathway to create a Brave New World -one step at a time.
“If I am not for myself, who is for me? And being for myself alone, what am I? And if not now, when?”
"If not you, then who?"
