3.50 am GMT, March 20th ushers in the Spring Equinox and the Sun’s move to the fiery sign of Aries, the Vernal Point and the beginning of the Western Tropical Astrological Year. How perfect it is, the new energy this change will bring at this time.
This can be a time of new beginnings, fresh possibilities and initiatives and an opportunity to get on the front foot, as the world recoils from the Covid-19 crisis. Fortunately, this Spring Equinox also sees the Moon in Aquarius in close alliance with the Asteroid Ceres, which is very much to do with nurture.
The Aquarius Moon is about kinship, together these two encourage us to put our shoulders to the wind, and push forwards to find our universal connection, unite and empower our response. Saturn is also in a fine angle to the Sun, which can bring a a greater sense of purpose, and resilience. Mars and Jupiter also are together in Capricorn, and where as Jupiter is not at its best in this sign, Mars is exalted, and the combination is seeing bold moves to stimulate the economies of the world, even if, in the 12th House in this chart, this may seem behind the scenes for now, the impact can be felt in time.
Uranus, the planet of change and innovation also links positively with the North Node in Cancer, in this chart, in the 6th House of healing, sanitation, personal hygiene and personal service. We may all need to sacrifice some of our personal freedom’s for the short term, but new technologies, medications, and techniques will emerge by the day, which can provide hope and reassurance. Welcome to the Spring Equinox.
