☆♥*♥☆ Spring Equinox ☆♥*♥☆

by Lorraine Valente

Hi Everyone,
Ace of Cups~Toth
Astrologically, on or about March 20th-21st heralds the entrance of the 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.

00° 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, and Capricorn) initiates, is motivated into action and requires an outlet. Cardinal energy represents movement from an inner, passive quality to an assertive, outer quality. It is our will to be noticed, like seedlings pushing their way through the soils surface towards the warmth of light.

Some believe the first house and 0 Aries♈ is where our 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 also symbolic of Spring, water, emotions and love. Cups are intuitive and heighten the senses. We become more aware of our feelings and desires during this season. The expression “Our cups runneth over” comes to mind with the 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 the base instinctual wild or shadow side with the domestic, tame and “civilized” aspect of Self. It’s about rebirth and rising from the depths of the unconscious and to bring forth what is within in order to manifest in form.

Easter is celebrated on the Sunday following the first Full Moon of after the Spring Equinox, on April17th.  However, the next Full Moon we experience on March 19 will be at 28° Virgo 48'.  This is no ordinary Full Moon as it's a Super Moon according to Astrologer Richard Nolle or a Crisis Moon according to Astrologer/Writer Lynn Koiner.  Either way, the energy is super intense. Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, are already feeling emotional tidal waves. Intuition and psychic awareness is heightened. If you're already feeling the "pull" what are oceans and sealife feeling? A Full Moon is a culmination of energy carried forth from the previous New Moon, 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 4th was at 13° Pisces 36.

Since the Spring Equinox brings our desire for love and romance to the forefront of thoughts, let’s discuss how you can bring new love into your life. Desire, wanting and intent is the key to visualizing that which you want to manifest . 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. Personal seeds are the thoughts created inside the mind’s eye. Thoughts are creative energy and will magnetize similiar thoughts, situations and people who share similar energy.
