Sun in Aries; The Equinox
The Equinoxes are an Earth-felt experience of the resolution of duality. Two energies, moving in opposite directions, come briefly into union.
The Northern Hemisphere is moving toward the light and heat of Summer; the 0° Aries point represents the beginning of Spring. The Southern Hemisphere is moving toward the cold and darkness of Winter; 0° Aries is the initiation of Autumn. The Equinox is the point where these opposing movements meet. On this day neither dark nor light is stronger; the opposites are in balance.
Simultaneously, and regardless of your location on planet Earth, this day is also the beginning of a new journey through the Wheel of the Zodiac. This is the first day of the first sign, the fire sign Aries. Aries symbolizes the birth of new life and its great desire to be. The Aries native instinctively seeks new experience. To others, this personality trait may be perceived as combative or competitive, but this is not the true motivation of the Aries individual. This native wants to experience all that life has to offer in its myriad forms. Not tomorrow, not next month, but now! New life is bursting at the seams within the heart and soul of this exuberant individual, manifesting as impulsivity and a desire to initiate new experience.
It is not always easy for the Aries individual to stay with what they’ve started – their path can be littered with uncompleted projects. And, these brave souls are the natural pioneers of the Zodiac, opening up the way for others to follow. Aligned with the rising Sun – Kephera in Shamanic Egyptian Astrology - these individuals instinctively understand that every day is a new beginning.
The Sun will remain in the emanation of Aries/Kephera from March 20 to April 19.
