Not only can we celebrate the Vernal Equinox, but we also get to herald the Sun’s transit into Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, on Saturday 3/19/16 PDT and Sunday 3/20/16 EDT. This fire sign is active, aggressive and adventurous. In the past 12 months, the Sun has transited all 12 Zodiac signs and at 1 degree of Aries, the cycle starts anew and so can we. We should keep our eyes open for opportunities on the horizon.
Ruled by the warrior planet Mars, the influences of Aries’ high energy can be used to springboard ideas and projects that have been percolating all winter. However, with unpredictable, non conformist planet Uranus visiting until 2019, recklessness, with the often resulting scattered energies can result in waste – time, energy, money. Pay attention to those urges to just “act” (act out or act up). Action with purpose and focus, rather than just because we’re bored will work. Risk vs reckless – don’t be careless.
Adding potential snap and crackle to interactions, clever, communication planet Mercury transits Aries from 3/21 until 4/06/16. Writing, speaking, tweeting may have more quickness, bite and sarcasm then usual. No need to hurt anyone’s feelings. No one has to go down in relationship flames.
As always, those most affected have the Sun. Moon 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.
