The Sun enters pioneering Aries this morning, marking the time of the Spring equinox and the start of the astrological New Year. The Sun will transit the sign of Aries until April 19th. We’re enthusiastic and spontaneous during this cycle, and we can be motivated by the desire to conquer, initiate, or pioneer. We are impulsive, and we want to come first and innovate. Aries is a sign that bounces back quickly and is often without pause for regret. We are direct, brave, and relatively uncomplicated in our needs, but we can also be short-sighted or impatient.
The Moon continues its transit of accommodating, fair-minded Libra until 11:44 AM EDT, after which the Moon is in perceptive, profound Scorpio.
We’re heading toward a Mercury-Jupiter alignment, exact early tomorrow, and verbal expression flows smoothly, presenting an excellent time to come to agreements and resolutions. We see the big picture and are more likely to factor in what’s meaningful to us. We’re inclined to talk and think about our dreams, plans, friends, and connections, opening up and enjoying the process.
We should watch for overstating and promising more than we can fulfill, but it remains an excellent time to enjoy good humor and positive vibes. This transit inspires optimism–we’re finding reasons to feel hopeful. Our opinions are strong. It’s a good time to stretch our thinking to include new possibilities.
