When the Sun moves into Aries on March 20th, it’s like a total rebirth for mind, body and spirit. It’s the Spring Equinox, that pivotal moment in the year when daylight equals the dark. It’s time to break out and break through. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and signifies all-things new. We have completed one whole zodiac cycle and we are ready to start all over again. This is always a much welcome transit after the dark, murky last days of the Pisces. Aries is ruled by Mars, and is the most physical sign of the zodiac. Now is the time for those New Year’s resolutions, not the dormant winter which is better for meditation and contemplation. This is the time of year when we crave physical release, excitement and new challenges more than ever. This always brings a serious surge of new fire into our lives, welcome heat and inspiration.
Spring asks of us these questions - Who are we? What are we here to do? Asking questions awaken our creativity, while judgments shut us down. In the days ahead, let yourself wonder about the coming year and perhaps beyond. Begin to lay the foundation for new accomplishments, new focus or a new direction. Another good strategy as you enter this season is to keep your focus off of what you don’t want. Spring is the season for beginnings. Your future is being created by your attention now.
