A New Astrological Year Begins With the 2017 Aries Equinox: March 20 2017

A New Astrological Year Begins With the 2017 Aries Equinox: March 20 2017

Moontide Femme by Anna Briggs of Annas Breath

The Sun will enter the sign of Aries on March 20th, 2017 and take us into a brand new season of energy. The Northern Hemisphere will be celebrating the entrance of Spring and the Southern Hemisphere will welcome Autumn. The day and night will be perfectly balanced and as a result, some of us may find an equilibrium. It’s a very powerful astrological time.

When the Sun enters Aries new beginnings and energy are sparked into motion.

The Zodiac begins with the sign of Aries, which makes it the perfect place to embark upon a fresh start.  The February Eclipses closed out chapters and ignited new ones at the same time. This seasonal shift, happening here, now takes us deeper into our new beginnings. Aries is the sign that’s the pioneer and one that jumps into anything and everything.  It’s got a brave heart and doesn’t need much convincing because it’s the thrill of the unknown that drives it forward. Some of its fearless energy will be in the air helping to propel us ahead and feel the possibility in doing something different.

Astrologers have long used the first day of any season (Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter) to forecast the tone of the next three months ahead. Relationship matters are still a major focal point with Venus moving deeper into her retrograde at the point of the equinox. Our values are being questioned and realigned in the new season ahead. To find out more about the new beginnings in motion for each of us personally, read about the deeper meaning of this Venus Retrograde Cycle.

The 2017 Aries Equinox is a perfect time to set new intentions.

Use the energy at hand to breath new life into something or simply use it to appreciate all we currently have. Endings always yield new beginnings and if we pause for a moment we might be able to tap into the “something new” that lies ahead.

  • March 20th:
    Spring Equinox
    Sun goes into Aries
    Waning Half Moon in Capricorn
  • Moon moves through:
    Capricorn / Aquarius / Pisces

From a spiritual and psychological standpoint, the transition from winter into spring is a restructuring time. We may feel a stirring of new life, new ideas, or a movement from inertia to growth. There are many ways to return from an Underworld or Innerworld experience—it’s not always a comfortable time. How can we help each other through this turbulent re-entry? We Answer: in ritual. We begin with purification—a sweat, or a bath in a river, the ocean—to clear the dross of deep inner work. Then we move toward Return. This may take the form of an actual journey through the woods, or through guided meditation.

Come alive! Cardinal Fire Aries revivifies us after a long winter by reminding us who we are and what we want. We become more primal, direct, frank, open, and rebellious; our inner teenager comes alive, our adult self needs to direct the energy wisely.
Those born under the Aries Sun embody those qualities. Don’t tell them what to do, give them a challenge instead. Appreciate their enthusiasm, life force, leadership, and no-nonsense clarity.
Get organized, make a list and check it off; a sense of accomplishment is the best cure for potential depression. The mood is determined, serious, competent, but uncomfortable without purpose or goal. Manage, don’t manipulate. Reach into history or tradition for answers.

Vist our Astrology Connection page for the full weekly forecast.
We love to share our ideas and can bond over saying outrageous things… Let a desire for fresh news, fresh territory, and a clean garden inspire action. Just notice that people may, in their enthusiasm, not be particularly careful of each other’s tender feelings.
We begin the new week with a charge; the Sun enters proactive Aries on Monday as the Moon enters determined Capricorn, and the spring revolution kicks in, however we want to define it. Politics, both national and interpersonal, moves onto the front burner this week. The courage to begin again, no matter how tough the winter, is the medicine of spring, so the stars ask us where do we need to start over? We have access to the determination and ability to make a good start. Let’s ramp up and get as far as we can before Mercury retrogrades on April 9th and sends us back to review.
Rhetoric intensifies, and so do our thoughts: we can see things in black and white instead of a more honest shading. If a person feels cornered, they can become truly active and storm the bastille, or get depressed if it’s a smaller, more personal corner. But we can pour this intensity into anything we do. Any sign of progress will improve the mood.
Monday, March 20: Now we’re cooking. The Sun enters pro-active Aries on this the vernal equinox, the first day of spring and the Moon enters competent, controlling Capricorn, we have efficiency to follow through what we begin, if we can get the energetic elements together, otherwise we can rebel against ourselves, or try to control the uncontrollable, and loose our momentum in tension.

As Above, So Below
…Longing to know,
we lift our faces to the night sky,
listen for star song,
seek moon blessings,
pray for their gifts 
of light and prophesy.

Mercury, “The Thinker,” involves our communication skills: what we say, our words, our voice, and our thoughts, 

Pisces reminds us to hibernate, to renew our wells with rest, introspection, feed our fertile imagination, and create safety for our sensitivity and intuition.
A sensitive solar eclipse in Pisces, can leave us feeling vulnerable, just as a rather explosive, feverish Mars/Uranus conjunction, squaring Pluto, stirs protests, demands action and lowers our impulse control. A victimized person or group may need our protection. Problems stimulate us to think outside of the box and across borders for solution.
Allow any masks of certainty to drop away, and release their thought patterns. Talk down fear. Let the instinctive time to act guide you.
With the New Moon in Pisces we grow sensitive, permeable, empathic and imaginative; let’s be gentle with one another. Tears flow easily.  Our energy level varies; we can swim in spirit, bathe in dreams, paint the night away, or just take a good long soak.
The Moon is PrG (Perigee) on Thursday, the point in the Moon’s orbit that is nearest to Earth. This makes the moon’s influence more intense. With the moon in Taurus it’s time to put steady and persistent action into what we started yesterday. Plant seeds and ideas in this fertile time. Friendly stubbornness sets the mood; if pushed, we just dig in our heels. Our sensuality brings us back into our bodies; our hungers sharpen.

Enjoy the entire weeks outlook on our Astology Connection webpage.

Hang on, we’re in for a bumpy ride. We have two apparently conflicting energy streams tugging us in different directions, and it’s up to us to ride these currents with grace; as the Sun conjuncts intuitive Neptune blurs the edge of reality and takes us into a soft imaginary world just as activating Mars conjuncts electrifying Uranus and turns up the engine of discontent.
As the Sun conjuncts Neptune in sensitive Pisces it calls us into our spirit and our imaginary worlds. We can be sensitive, intuitive, and hungry for spiritual practice, but can also get easily lost in our imagination and alternative facts. Our hopes and our fears, our dreams and our discouragements can warp our perception of what’s really going on. We can drift into a dream then be jolted back to reality.
In a quiet, creative or romantic moment, that Sun-Neptune conjunction can be magical. But the world sizzles and pops this week as . . .
Sunday, February 26: We can be an emotional bowl of mush today as a new Moon/Solar eclipse in Pisces seen in the extreme southern hemisphere, marks an emotional turning point. Let those feelings well up and spill out but don’t attach to the stories. Listen for some deep internal decision to end a . . .
