March 20th ushers in the first day of Spring, known as the Spring Equinox (or Ostara). This is the one day of the year when light and darkness achieve balance. (Another way of looking at this is that there is also a balance in yin and yang, or masculine and feminine energy.)
Spring brings with it new growth and new beginnings, in plant, animal and human life. I am sad to see winter go, but I do love the green of spring (and warmer weather!). The Spring Equinox is a time for celebrating life, and t he renewal of life. It is a time for planting seeds – literally and figuratively.
We plant the literal seeds of those vegetables, flowers and crops that we wish to see in our lives – that we literally wish to harvest. We also plant the seeds of goals that we wish to achieve, the manifestation of ideas into physical reality, This is a highly creative time, and we all need to honor the creative nature within us.
What changes do you wish to make in your life? What goals do you wish to achieve? What needs to be left behind? Know that you need to dream the big dreams here, because that is the only way that you are going to manifest them in you life - to see them first, clearly, in your mind!
Today is not only the first day of Spring, but it marks the time when we move into the Astrological new year with the sign of Aries. The Aries temperament is a fiery one – they like to take the lead, and initiate projects. They are enthusiastic, full of energy, adventurous, ambitious and impulsive Wow – what a package!
They like breaking the rules, playing devil’s advocate, and generally shaking things up! Patience is not one of their virtues, and they can be a bit frank. They are also highly creative, and have both the willpower and the stamina to achieve their goals.
