Once again, the winds of cosmic change blow this week with the arrival of a new season on Earth. On Monday, March 20th at 2:24 p.m. Pacific Time, the Sun enters the skies of Aries. This is the official arrival of the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, when the soil is primed for significant new beginnings.
This exact moment in time is seen as a spark of raw fire that collectively infuses with a specific type of energy that will last for the next three months. In the astrological chart of the Spring Equinox, the Sun illuminates new paths we can take along our journey of personal evolution. The solutions to certain situations that have remained a mystery can now be revealed.
The other luminary, the Moon, will be positioned in the visionary sign of Pisces. A great amount of inspiration will be available to us, especially for those who dare to capture their sudden groundbreaking ideas before they get lost in the ether.
From now until the summer, the area of relationships will gain momentum. Many of us will begin new connections that are nurturing, loving, and most likely long-term. Overall, this can be an incredibly positive chart for those who have been waiting for the perfect moment to make a bold move.
New Moon in Aries
That moment comes very soon with the arrival of the New Moon in Aries. On Tuesday, March 21st at 10:23 a.m., the Moon renews herself—and so do we! Out of the entire year, this is one of the most primed moments for a new beginning. Aries is the very beginning of the zodiac, and whichever seeds we plant today will grow into beautiful, colorful flowers over the months ahead.
Even better news! At this New Moon, the luminaries are clashing with Mars in Gemini. If you remember, the astrology of the Fall and Winter of 2022 was highly colored by the retrograde of Mars. For many of us, this represented slow progress and projects and even relationships stalling or suddenly ending.
But things are different now with Mars preparing to finally leave the skies of Gemini. What this New Moon’s configuration could mean is the return of a past opportunity or situation that didn’t quite gel in the Fall or Winter of 2022. This could literally be a second chance to fully grasp an opportunity we always knew was meant for us!
