Regardless of how endless Winter may have seemed for some of us, Spring is here! It arrives, in the Northern Hemisphere, on Thursday March 20, 2014 – finally. The Vernal Equinox coincides with the move of the Sun into active, aggressive, fiery Aries. In the past 12 months, the Sun has transited all 12 Zodiac signs and the cycle starts anew. At 1 degree of Aries, Spring is ready for us to bloom. The warrior Mars influenced, impulsive, physical high energy of the first Astrology sign can be used to springboard those ideas and projects that have been percolating all winter. Lets get a move on.
This is a great time for beginnings, start ups, what to plant, etc. We should keep our eyes open for opportunities on the horizon. The universe will support you. However, with unpredictable, non conformist Uranus visiting super octane Aries until 2019, recklessness can result, so pay attention to those urges to “act” (act out or act up). “Action” with purpose and focus, rather than just because we’re bored is a good way to go. Aries is prone to rushing, risk taking and scattered energies. Think a project through and complete it. But, don’t forget to have fun. Spring has sprung and everyone can use a little bit of controlled craziness every once in awhile.
As always, those most affected have the Sun and/or Rising sign in Aries, but the rest of us will still feel the feisty vibes somewhere in our lives depending upon where the Fire sign appears in our chart.
