Aries♈️: The Warrior, Spring Equinox & Astrological New Year🎉
This weekend we got to celebrate my favorite celebration of the year, The Spring Equinox bringing us equality of day and night and the Sun moving into the Sign of Aries♈️ which is the start of the Astrological New Year of 2021.
I spent it in nature by the water on my first vacation in year and it was so restorative, hence the reflection. Yet as we move into Aries season and the new year it is important to think about how to use this potent energy to use the Spring time energy of initiation.
The Astrological New Year is also known as Astrology Day is observed by all astrologers on the 20th or 21st of March, which is when the chain of sun signs is said to begin. This year it occurred on March 20th following 2020’s Leap Year that had this day rarely occurring on March 19th (along with all the other craziness that happened in 2020).
The first day of the astrological year is also the first day of the sun moving into Aries the first sun sign. It marks the exact day when the equinoxes appear - the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere, and the fall equinox in the southern hemisphere.
After the long night of the soul that is Winter, native peoples around the world await this day when the sun gives us equal day and night.
One thing that people don’t focus on about Astrology is how it marks and frames each season and points to the favored activities and actions to take during the time.
There are always three zodiac signs for every one of the four seasons. As we moved into Capricorn and Winter Season with the Winter Solstice on December 21st, we started a 3-month cycle of cold and darkness that would end on the first day of spring.
The brightness of the Sun and the hope of planted seedlings that we nurture from March to June 21st bring us a Summer’s bounty come the Summer Equinox and Cancer Season. It brings one closer to the universal force, which allows one to broaden one’s mind to new sensations and possibilities.
So it is a good way to banish the winter blues by celebrating the astrological year ending with Pisces, which saw its last day on 20th March, and to welcome the newness that comes with beginning of the new astrological year. So let’s get into what Aries season is bringing us in 2021
