Spring At Last – Sun In Aries!

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.

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.

Aries Sun & Vernal Equinox = Spring, Yay!

On Wednesday, March 20, 2013 the Sun moves into the dynamic first sign of the Tropical Zodiac – fiery Aries. The Sun has transited all 12 Astrology signs and the cycle starts anew. We also celebrate the Vernal Equinox on the same day – 1 degree of Aries. Spring is here with new, fresh chances to bloom!

Fire sign Aries’ impulsive, physical high energy can be used to springboard astrology_chartwheel 2those  ideas and projects that have been percolating all winter. Just to add to the excitement, powerful planets will be visiting Aries for the next few weeks, thereby sparking an extra oomph to this already “snap, crackle and pop” sign.

Planet ruler Mars (the Warrior planet), transiting since 3/12 will remain until 4/20/13. Speed, competition, confrontations lure us. Realize however, we can use any over abundance of aggression for accomplishment, positive action. Do something useful. Will the Love and Beauty planet Venus, in Aries until 4/15, embrace Mars and turn all that passion in another direction – it’s possible. We will certainly be more inclined to choose the “one” and zero in – could be much fun.

Mercury is in Aries too from 4/14 until 5/2/13.  Communication may have more quickness, edge and bite – you’ll be great in debates? Create powerful tweets?  (Just watch the snark.)

And last, but not least, please note that unpredictable, non conformist Uranus is transiting super octane Aries until March 2019 and wildness may occasionally break out. Sudden urges to “act” – out or up – will be hard to resist at times.  However, 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 arrived and everyone can use a little bit of controlled frolicking every once in awhile.

The Sun is in Aries * It Must Be Spring!

The cycle begins again with the Sun entering fiery, Mars ruled Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac. Besides being the beginning of the Astrological New Year, March 19, 2012 (10:15pm PDT) / March 20, 2012 (1:15am EDT) is also the first day of Spring – the Vernal Equinox. I always have the urge to start waving a checkered flag and yelling “start your engines” at this time of year. I love it.

This is a great time for beginnings, start ups, what to plant, etc. We should keep our eyes open for opportunities. That Aries impulsive, physical, amped energy can be used to bungee jump off that mountain of ideas and projects you’ve been stewing about all winter. The universe will support you. However…

With unpredictable, eccentric, Uranus visiting this super octane sign, for 7 more years, wildness 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 arrived 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 influences somewhere in our lives depending upon where the Fire sign appears in our chart.

Astrology:Sun Into Aries – Spring is Here! 3/20/11

Spring has sprung! On March 20, 2011 the Sun moved into the dynamic first sign of the Tropical Zodiac – fiery Aries (7:21PM Eastern / 4:21PM Pacific). The Sun has transited all 12 signs and is starting the cycle anew.  On this day, we also celebrate the Vernal Equinox – Spring is here with new chances to bloom!

This Fire sign’s impulsive, physical high energy can be used to springboard those ideas and projects you’ve been contemplating all winter. With the lucky planet Jupiter transiting Aries until June 4, 2011, the universe will support you. Just don’t go into a “bigger is better” thing (which is a favorite Jupiter approach to life). Moderation, which is often a struggle for risk taking Aries, would work well now.  With unpredictable, non conformist Uranus also visiting – sitting for 7 more years – wildness can result. (Remember, Aries is ruled by the warrior planet Mars)

Mercury is in Aries too until May 15, 2011.  Communication may have more quickness, edge and bite – you’ll be great in debates?  Since the planet will be Retrograde 3/30 – 4/23, re think/ review any temptation for verbal assaults, even if you’re right. No need to wound.

As always, those most affected have the Sun and/or Rising sign in Aries, but the rest of us will still feel the feisty influences somewhere in our lives depending upon where the Fire sign appears in our chart.

Astrology: Shine on Harvest Moon!

This month’s Full Moon is in the Fire sign of Aries on Thursday 9/23. It is also this year’s Harvest Moon. (“Harvest” is any Full Moon that occurs closest to the Autumnal Equinox– which happened when the Sun glided into Libra on 9/22/10.) During this Full phase, the Libra Sun is directly opposite and lights the Aries Moon. Rather than the more familiar crescent shape, we see it round and beautiful.

The Moon is “waning” on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters, making it a good time to finish up old projects, clean up messes that you have been staring at for the past few weeks. An Aries Moon is perfect for physical activity. Get it done! Once you clear out what has been hanging around, you will create space for the “new” – ideas, things, people, places. However, fiery Aries can be a little over the top with all that Mars energy. Don’t do that “throw out the baby with the bath water” thing. Think it through before letting go?


Astrology: Here Comes The Libra Sun 9/22/10

The Libra Sun arrives on Wednesday 9/22/10 (11:09 PM EDT / 8:09PM PDT) – bringer of the Autumnal Equinox, master/mistress of partnerships, lover of beautiful things, charmer connecting and fostering relationships, ruled by the lovely Venus. The Scale is this Air sign’s symbol. (BTW: All other Zodiac signs are either people or animals)

Even if it isn’t your Sun or Rising sign, Libra will still cast a glow.  It’s all about socializing, networking, getting along. There will be cooperation! (Great time to ask for a raise? build a group of volunteers?)

With the influence of Venus, the good things in life – music, delicious food, beauty are used to warm and lift the spirits. My thought/ suggestion for anything Libran is always:  meet some fun folks for lunch!

Seeking harmony, the Libra way is to see both sides of an issue before making decisions.  This is not a failing or  a weakness – seeking justice can be hard, determined work – however, using the Pros/Cons list method can just string the selection process out. Be aware that important action can be stalled by over think. Paying attention to instinct and being honest will give a more direct line to a choice.

Astrology: Spring Equinox- Sun into Aries

Reminder! March 20th is the beginning of the Vernal Equinox – Spring is here. At  10:32am  PDT -1:32pm EDT, the Sun moves into the dynamic first sign of the Tropical Zodiac – Aries.

This is a great time for beginnings, start ups, what to plant, etc – all that  Aries impulsive, physical, high energy can be used to snow board off that cliff of ideas and projects you’ve been contemplating all winter. The universe will support you.

Mars went direct on 3/10, there was a New Moon on 3/15 and Mercury moves out of  fuzzy Pisces into volatile Aries today,  3/17, (communication should be sharper, but watch for arguments – be nice). We should keep our eyes open for opportunities. Pay attention to our urges to “act” – especially, action with purpose, not just because we’re bored. Even with excellent timing, we still need to remember to “focus”.  Aries is also the father of rushing, risk taking and scattered energies.  Think a project through and complete it. At the end of the day, as you sit exhausted, you’ll have a feel good moment and be able to check – “done”. What’s next?

FYI – March 20th is also the designated as “International  Astrology Day”. Always observed on the Equinox, it is a celebration around the world of the ancient art of Astrology.  (I will be serving ice cream and cake)
