Happy Astrological New Year!

Today marks the first day of the astrological new year and the beginning of the zodiac because the sun is at 0 degrees Aries today.  Over the years, the day and time slowly change that is why, if you are on the cusp, the day for the beginning or the end of your sign might change.

The spring equinox is the first day of the astrological new year and over thousands of years, when you look up into the sky, it will look like the constellations don’t match.  That is because of the progression of the spring equinox and why people think we should have a 13th sign, it’s because the constellations don’t match perfectly do when they were assigned their signs.  Not to fear though!  You should always know that the first day of spring is the first day of Aries no matter the shift in the constellations and you are correct!

What is an ingress?  An ingress is a term astrologers use to when a planet moves into a new sign.  Today, the sun ingressed into Aries.

Let’s talk about those courageous Aries.  We are a fiery bunch of leaders!  We are passionate and get people behind our cause.  We love very deeply and can be surprising if you really us.  Sometimes we start projects we don’t finish as we just get bored.  In fact, we may get bored a lot which is why I think Aries is the sign of the athlete and warrior.  When our whole mind and body is engaged in something primal we are there leading you into battle.  We initiate.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is represented by the ram.  Aries is the baby that needs help from everyone to survive which is why we sometimes have the “me. me, me!” going on.   We can be juvenile and look to others to give us what we want right then.  On the other hand, being juvenile can make us really fun to be around.   As to why the ram is associated with our sign, well, sometimes we want what we want and we just bang our head against it until it happens or doesn’t happen in many cases.  Age tempers an Aries.

Aries is ruled by the planet Mars.  Aries can take action and that is their strong suit.  Get the Aries to go do it if no one else will.

Just remember when all is said and done we are doing this because we want to be an individual and if we hurt your feelings it’s not intentional.  We just didn’t take them into account.  We were just trying to help.

Aries births the spring equinox and the beginning of new life.
