☆♥*♥☆ Spring Equinox~International Astrology Day 2010 ☆♥*♥☆

     March 20/21st heralds the entrance of the astronomical Sun into the sign of 00 degrees of Aries. Emerging from Pisces and the 12th house, we reluctantly emerge from a surreal, embryonic cradle, starry-eyed and impressionable. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and the starting point by which we begin our journey and evolutionary cycles.

     0 Degrees of Aries is also called the Aries Point or AP. Astronomically, this point marks the place where the Sun crosses the equatorial plain in the North, or the Sun/Earth midpoint. Uranian Astrologers link 0 degrees to all the cardinal signs. Cardinal energy (Aries, Cancer, Libra, & Capricorn) initiates, motivated into action, and requires a physical, creative, or emotional outlet. Cardinal energy represents movement from an inner, passive quality to an assertive, outer quality. It is the will to be noticed, like seedlings pushing their way through the soils surface towards the warmth of light. Some would say that the first house and 0 Aries is where Spirit emerges and the starting point likened to The Fool's Journey in the Tarot.
     Even though The Fool symbolizes the element of Air, his fire ignites his passion for independence and exploration. Emerging with creative energy and innocence he forges away on his path, consciously trying to learn from his life experiences through trial and error. The Suit of Cups in the tarot deck is symbolic of Spring, water, emotions, and love. Cups are intuitive and heighten our senses.  Awaress of feelings and desires are heightened during this season. The expression "our cups runneth over" comes to mind with an outpour of love from the heart chakra.

     New Beginnings, birth, growth, revitalized, and renewed energy is symbolic of 0 degrees of any sign and more specifically for the sign of Aries. The Sabian Symbol for 1 Aries (we always round up to the next degree) is:  "A Woman Has Risen Out of the Ocean, a Seal Embracing Her". Again, this is symbolic of our emergence into the light of a new experience. This symbol of "emerging" from water is consistent with the Moon Card in the Tarot whereby the Scorpion crustacean emerges from the sea straddled between the Wolf and the Dog symbolic of the blending of our base instinctual wild or shadow side with the domestic, tame, and "civilized" aspects of our self. It's about rebirth and rising from the depths of our unconscious and to bring forth what is within in order to manifest in form.

     Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday following the first Full Moon of the Spring season. The Full Moon of March 30th will be at 9+ degrees Libra. The Full Moon is a culmination of energy carried forth from the previous New Moon, approximately 14 days earlier. During a New Moon, if you visualize that which you desire, and "plant" seeds of intention, they will "bloom" during the Full Moon. The New Moon on March 15th was at 24+ degrees of Pisces.

     Since the Spring Equinox brings our desire for love and romance to the forefront of our thoughts, let's discuss how you can bring new love into your life. Desire, wanting, and intent are key to visualizing that which you want to manifest in your life. If you have wanted to start a family, bring a new love into your life, switch careers or even plant a garden, now is the time to plant your personal seeds. By personal seeds I mean the thoughts you create inside your mind's eye. Thoughts are creative energy and will attract like thoughts and energy like a magnet.

Make a Wish....Blow a the Universe!
