Weekly Astrology for March 20, 2017 by Chris Flisher
At the point of the Vernal Equinox, also known as the Aries Point, or zero degrees Aries, the Sun steps into the first sign of the zodiac. On this day, in which we witness equal amounts of darkness and light, we begin our slow turn towards the oncoming light of spring and summer. This day is matched by the Autumnal Equinox which serves the same function, but with a turn towards the darkness and the coming of fall and winter. The Aries Point is a powerful degree in astrology in that it signals the beginning. Having made its journey around the Sun and all of its zodiacal signs, the Earth returns to this yearly point of departure and so we begin. At the same time we see Mercury, Venus (in retrograde) and Uranus all in the sign of Aries. This cluster of planets delivers a distinctly active and highly focused period of time, not only for all Aries but also for other cardinal signs, Cancer and Capricorn by square (challenging) and Libra, by opposition as well as the other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, by trine (harmonious.) With all of that in mind, we may come to recognize the potential that lingers in such a placement. Although squares (90 degrees) are challenging, generally speaking, they also hold the promise of fulfillment through hardship. As mentioned many times here, the true outcome of a challenge is reward. If the roof did not leak we would not fix it, so we come to a time when those who are challenged can be motivated to alter their trajectory or rise to the occasion by making significant progress.
