The SPRING EQUINOX . . . . .Monday, March 20, 6:29 am EDST

Monday, March 20, 6:29 am EDST 

The SPRING EQUINOX is that point when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun. It ushers in the predominance of the energies of the first three signs of the zodiac: Aries, Taurus, and Gemini. These signs strive to establish personal identity and survival on Planet Earth.

Note:  In both the Spring and Autumnal equinoxes, the season change depends upon your hemisphere. In both hemispheres the progression of the signs of the zodiac – underlying the ambiance in the atmosphere – is identical, so the ritual for maximizing the time periods ahead remains the same.

Aries is discovering who they are and their burst of energy spreads seeds for new beginnings. Taurus is establishing who they are and is concerned with using their energy in practical ways that build a stable base of comfort. Gemini is thinking about who they are, activating the mind and going into motion to connect their thoughts to others.

Thus, the Spring Equinox ushers in the springtime months – a time for new beginnings!  Energy is active and your life is ready for you to plant new seeds that will determine your year ahead as well as impact the rest of your life.  It is time for self-assertion, individuality, going your own way to achieving those aims that are close to your heart.

Just as farmers know that by planting their crops in the springtime they will have a harvest in the Fall to carry them through the more difficult times, this is the time of year for you to focus on discovering the new you who is emerging. Let your spirits soar and actively create a new chapter in your life that opens the way to happy times ahead.

Best uses of this time of year: be willing to explore new horizons, take trips, and try new things. Be aware of your finances and what you can do to increase or stabilize them. Go out and about and socialize to gain a greater understanding of how society thinks and to gain information and new social connections that can make your life better in the times ahead. Be willing to stretch your capabilities and learn more about yourself during these months.
