MARCH IS THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW YEAR IN ASTROLOGY
Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, is ruled by Mars, the ultimate explorer, filled with energy and fire and drive, and restless and curious. Spring is when all things are new, light green sprouts showing up all around us, and after the cool and barren winter months, reminds us that life is all around us, and life is eternal.
Each month the Moon gives us a second chance via the New Moon, to reset and start anew. Each Solstice or Equinox does the same, in a more powerful way.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR MARCH & SPRING…
Now is the time to rethink yourself, your home, your job, your life. Like a new born baby with the courage of an Aries, step out into the world and reinvent yourself like a force of nature. It’s an exciting time of rebirth, renewal, and appreciating all that life has to offer. It’s New Years day! Make resolutions, make plans, reinvent yourself, change jobs, move, fall in love and EXPLORE the possibilities. your actions during the next three months are setting the “tone” for the New Year you are entering. What kind of year do you want to live? Explore what you’ve considered exploring. This is not live in your head or think about it tomorrow, time or energy, this is DO IT time. You’re filled with the fire of Mars and raring to go.
A TWIST IN THIS YEAR’S EQUINOX
MERCURY RETROGRADES ON MARCH 22
This Equinox has an interesting twist to it however, as Mercury goes retrograde March 22, right on the heels of the Equinox. Mercury, the messenger, ruled by Gemini, the Communicator, goes retrograde till April 15th. Retrogrades are about looking back. Our thinking slows down, we make poor choices on the fly. We must ponder and consider the changes we want to make, so I recommend late April or May be the time you implement your Spring Equinox ideas, as they may be stalled prior to that. See set backs as a gift. What did you miss here? What did you forget? What didn’t you consider? Figure that out so when you do make a move, its the right move.
And this Mercury is also in Aries, as is the Sun.
