Today is the Spring Equinox where the hours of day and night are equal in both hemispheres. A time of balance, briefly. It’s also the start of the astrological New Year, the first day of Aries. So firstly I would like to say Happy New Year and Happy Equinox! And as it’s my wedding anniversary tomorrow I would like to thank my husband for sixteen years of happiness and love <3.


The sun going into Aries this morning (for me at least – different times for other I do realize) means that the sun joins Uranus and Mars (the ruler of Aries) in Aries. And these planets will be joined by Venus late tomorrow. Yowza! This a LOT of Aries energy so wherever Aries is in your chart will be affected. If you have no idea where it is then I still have my introductory reading offer of $99 for a one hour mp3 recorded natal chart reading if booked and paid for by 31st March.


Aries is a very direct sun sign. Full of energy. The first of the signs it has all the spirit of a young child. Very direct, spontaneous, enthusiastic, courageous and confident. It’s the sign of Spring and, like the Spring, Aries is full of possibilities and open to new experiences. Inspiring others with its vitality and enthusiasm. Aries can make great leaders and exciting, passionate lovers. They are drive and passion incarnate.


However, there is always an underbelly in everything. Aries can be very impulsive and very quick to anger. Their boundless enthusiasm can cause them to completely overlook detail and the sensitivity of others. They can be pushy and easily upset people.


Interestingly, as I deepen my study of soul astrology I learn that the reason I have always struggled around strong Aries energy is that I have my South Node in Aries. As the South Node is our soul’s habit, the area of life we are born to learn the lesson of, it is not surprising that I have never liked this quality in others. It’s the part of me that I am here to unlearn and a part of my unconscious soul that I dislike the most. And yes, we all have a South Node too!


As the Aries energy is SO strong for the next month be aware of it and try to avoid the underbelly. Try to count to ten before being impulsive and try to stay calm when others are losing their temper. With Mars and Uranus joining together in Aries expect quite a lot of angry, unpredictable energy amongst the drive and enthusiasm especially in the next couple of weeks. I can tell you the energies are wacky and intense coming up.


Hang on to your hats! It’s going to be a wild ride!.
