Equinox Updatein: Aries 0 °

The Equinox is the point that the Sun is transiting over the equator. It can be heading north, or south, depending on the Season. March, it is heading northward, and the spring effect for the Northern Hemisphere comes into play, while the fall effect for the Southern Hemisphere is occurring at the same time.
The chart for this equinox in March has the Sun in Aries, having just moved over the cusp from Pisces. This time of the year tends to be action oriented. We feel the need to change things, clean things, prepare for summer (or winter) as the season kicks into gear. For some of us, we get a bit too impulsive, ignore warning signs, or basically, become a little too giddy. Since Mars rules the sign of Aries, we can look at its placement to give us a sense of how we are likely to react this season.
Mars is transiting Taurus. This helps those of us who want to get a lot done, and to be more conscientious about our actions. We are searching for tangible enrichments in our choices. The stamina that we have today, can help us to make it through the season and reach our objectives. Those objectives might be associated with learning new skills, spiritual enlightenment, or simply getting as much done as possible. Mars is associated with our vitality, so we need to work with what is available to keep ourselves safe. Time to write up this season's "to-do" list.
Today, the Sun is conjunct with Chiron in Aries, adding an urge to heal and break free of old, unhealthy concepts. Since Chiron will be in Aries for the next eight years, March and April will be a reminder for us to revisit this healing process each year. Chiron's transit through Aries tends to bring a more forceful healing process than we have experienced in recent years. Some of us are going to love it, while others are likely to despise the feeling it brings for us.
The Aries placed conjunction is forming a loose opposition with an "out of sign" Moon in Virgo. The Moon will move into Libra in about 3.5 hours after the Equinox. For the chart, itself, this brings a different type of awkward transition because, until the Moon's ingress into Libra, this is a Void of Course (VOC) Moon transit. We have a more difficult time managing our emotions during a VOC. In many ways, we feel disjointed until the Moon's influence can tap into the next sign it is approaching. So, that disconnected feeling may be sustained throughout this season simply because that's how the season begins. We can make the best of it by keeping our cool, or by maintaining some distance from situations that cause us too much discomfort. As the season progresses, we will either figure it out, or we won't. Either way, we can work through the season by utilizing the more productive aspects in this chart radiating from this moon placement.
Although the exact trine from the Moon to Mars in Taurus, the square to Jupiter in Sagittarius and the trine to Pluto in Capricorn is Grand Fixed Trine, are behind us, we need to remember that the Moon is VOC as it wanes out of these connections. There is a moneymaking/moneysaving component with the Grand Trine. We are seeking domestic security. We want good health but where we might stumble is that we want complete and immediate control over it. At the same time, we are likely to wrestle with the Moon square to Jupiter that causes us to feel discriminated against, or exploited. Question is, who or what is the reason for the feelings we are struggling with?
Thankfully, Mercury's retrograde motion as it forms a conjunction with Neptune in Pisces, may be the perfect outlet for exploring these questions. Keeping a dream journal can help us to explore the unconscious interpretations of our life. This conjunction's sextile to Mars in Taurus and sextile to Saturn in Capricorn give us the best foundation for safely exploring, within reason, our deep-seated fears.
As you may be starting to realize, this Equinox chart has some form of aspect between most of the planets. Venus in Aquarius is square to Mars in Taurus and sextile to Jupiter in Sagittarius. Conflict with others may seem to cause us some frustration, but at the same time, the detached nature of Aquarius can help us to explore whether the relationship is worth fixing, or is it better to release? Jupiter's connection allows us to explore our faith and belief systems to help guide us within important relationship decisions. Another potential area of influence from Venus is finances. Relationships may be the least of our concerns. We may be struggling with money. Similar to the relationship component, we may need to detach our emotions from the situation to explore the root of the financial frustrations.
The complexities of this chart goes on and on. To sum it up without going on ad nauseam, the focus of this season is that we are needing to explore our situations from within our hearts. We cannot assume that there is an easy solution nor can we expect some savior to swoop down to save us from ourselves. The strength that we need is within us. But it is imperative that we use that strength to our advantage, for the good of our home, our families and our personal health. This equinox in March will provide clues and ideas for creating positive social interactions, intellectual awareness, and most of all, healing.
