The spring season began in the Northern Hemisphere Wednesday, with the Sun joining Mars and Uranus in Aries. This is being followed close on its heels by an unusual Full Moon on Wednesday, March 27 at 5:27 am EDT. This setup is a reminder not to let yourself get knocked off balance by your environment, or by people you perceive as overpowering you in some way.
Wednesday (tomorrow) is the Aries equinox, when the Sun enters Aries at 7:02 am EDT to begin a new season and a new astrological cycle. This year it was preceded by Mars and will be closely followed by Venus, making this an especially ‘personal’ beginning. Mars, however, might not make it a placid one.
It’s been a surreal or perhaps even dadaist week in the news and in astrology. Starting with the sky, there are currently six planets, the Sun and some asteroids in Pisces right now, with one of the highlights being retrograde Mercury. This is astrology that is bending notes, blending colors and warping so-called reality into interesting shapes.
