Happy Spring Equinox!
20th March 2017.
On this day, the Sun shines directly on the equator, making the day and night almost equal.
Autumn Equinox in the Southern hemisphere.
The Spring Equinox is defined as the first day of Aries and the beginning of the new astrological year, the ending of a year long cycle and a time of initiating new beginnings with positive new enthusiasm and a renewed Lust for life!
Aries symbolize the quest to express individuality, to assert willpower, and to create vitality for initiating new cycles of experience.
The fire sign of Aries is the archetype of the Warrior hero taking action. With the Sun at 0 degress Aries, we become activated to overcome challenges and to initiate the new, through courage, enthusiasm and leadership.
Destiny welcomes initiative and free will. It is our greatest gift if used correctly. The word courage comes from the root “cour” which means heart, center, or core.
Courage manifests when you fear the path ahead, but take the first step anyway, seizing the moment to pioneer vigorously into new frontiers of consciousness and living. Aries calls us to act in line with our highest ideals.
The Sun still charged with the spiritual wisdom, faith and insights gained from Pisces, is now able to manifest through courage and action, our spiritual wisdom, visions, hopes and dreams into reality.
We at first need faith in order to conquer fear and manifest courage.
We will easily be able to loose our fear of the unknown and embrace and live out the qualities of Aries into our lives now, which are:
Assertive, Bold, Daring, Courageous, Innocent, Pioneering, Vigorous, Competitive, Independent, Explosive, Adventurous, Enthusiastic, Expressive, Outgoing, Self confident.
” Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear”. -Mark Twain
