Sun in Aries: A New Zodiac Year
Welcome to spring! The Sun is in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. The world is full of fresh energy and new beginnings, and it’s a great time to take initiatives and leave the past in the past. Aries is a forward-focused Fire sign, and we should all be feeling the desire for positive change now. While energy can be impatient at times, there’s no need to spend endless hours deliberating if your heart tells you something is right. This is a month to “just do it.” Take a chance. Throw your hat over the wall and THEN figure out how to get it. Aries is also the sign of the solo star. Have you been hiding behind other people? Step out and shine on your own.
Heads-up: communication planet Mercury will be going retrograde (backward) in Aries from March 30 through April 23. This is a time notorious for technology snags, travel delays and miscommunications. Since Aries rules hot tempers, we may see more unrest in the Middle East — as well as in hotheaded people in our own lives. Take preventive measures by backing up your computer and electronic data, and doing some deep breathing. Aries is a very physical, active sign. Release stress that gathers (especially in your head, face and neck) with regular exercise, facials and even a scalp massage.
