Spring Vernal Equinox – March 19, 2016

Happy Vernal Equinox! March 20, 2016 our Sun moved into Aries at 12:30 AM ET (March 19th at 9:30 PM for us on the West Coast). I’m already in spring cleaning mode! I love this time of year with the greening grass and trees in bloom. I feel reengerized after the slumber of winter and eager to take on new projects. With the vernal equinox we have Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces bringing a romantic and magical overtone to the moment. The new year begins with the vernal equinox from Aries always being the first. There’s a longer story for that but I’ll save that for later. What is your wish list for this solar year? The full moon and lunar eclipse (March 23rd at 5:03 AM PDT at 3 degrees Libra 17) will be a powerful eclipse happening so near the spring equinox. There is a strong feminine influence within this vernal equinox with Venus in Pisces (her sign of exhaltation) and conjunct Neptune.  With the rising sign Libra there is an emphasis on relationships and social justice.  Venus as the ruler is in the exhalted sign of Pisces conjunct Neptune giving a strength to the rising sign.  This year may unfold our work in relationships and social justice, fairness.  With Saturn and Mars in Sagittarius in the 2nd house of the chart, we may have challenges with boundaries and how we are defined by our values and our self worth.  This solar year looks to emphasize these areas of life from the perspective of my location in Richland, WA.  The houses and may differ in different cities across the US.  Spring cleaning may include looking at relationships, what needs to be updated and refreshed for fairness and expressing your values.  Enjoy this beautiful time of year and the coming growth!  Happy Spring!
