The Vernal Equinox

“I’ll light the fire,
You place the flowers in the vase
that you bought today.
Staring at the fire
for hours and hours while
I listen to you play your love songs
all night long for me.
Only for me.”  Crosby, Stills and Nash

At 12:16 PM today, Tuesday 3/20, the Sun moves into the fiery sign of Aries marking the time of the Vernal Equinox.  Aries rules beginnings and the start of a new season. The noted Jungian astrologer, Richard Ideman, has described the fire element in astrology this way,”Fire is the life-force, the prana force. It makes us feel at one with the universe. It gives hope, enthusiasm, joy, creative force and great  joie de vivre. Passion, energy and vitality are all connected with the fire signs- romance and creativity coming from the heart – the passion for creativity… It is the idea that life is beautiful and I can deal with it.”

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”Two lovers are strolling through a secluded walk” Lynda Hill
