We believe in nurturing the entire being, from the outside-in, and embrace the idea of whole health and wellness. In celebration of that, we partnered with Auburn Astrology to help guide you through the Spring Equinox and Solar New Year – a time of new beginnings. Read on to see what you can expect in the months ahead!
The Solar New Year happens on March 20th, 2021 corresponding with the Spring Equinox. This day marks the start of a new journey through the 12 zodiac signs and kicks off with the sign of Aries. The beginning of spring highlights initiation, new beginnings and the energy of passion. Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, and it is the sign of determination, fearlessness, the urge to pioneer from a place of authenticity and drive. This year, March 21st is also important because Venus, the planet of love, joy and creativity, joins the sun in the sign of Aries, amplifying the desire to be bold and embrace your passions for discovery. This is a potent time to go on a journey of self-discovery and embrace yourself as you are. The energy of the Spring Equinox represents the core of willpower pushing out into pure expression, much like the energy of rebirth turns the frozen and bare landscape into a paradise of blooming trees, grasses and flowers.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is a fire sign. Aries represents the fire of life itself and the invisible force of vitality that inhabits every human. Spring initiates this fire energy to grow and push through the dry cold landscape of winter (both physically and metaphorically) bursting into buds, flowers and shoots. From the flowing currents and debris of Pisces (the seasonal bridge between winter and spring) the soil becomes abuzz with life forging through the decay. In spring, we have the opportunity to decide what we want to build with the wisdom from our experiences and endings, to decide what we want to create for this new cycle in our lives. This time of year represents a time of equalization on the journey to the return of light, a journey which peaks at the Summer Solstice. The Spring Equinox marks the shift into outward expression from the inward hibernation of winter.
Stepping into equal light is reminiscent of Aries ability to commence and envision goals, to dream in tandem with action. The bravery to set out on unfamiliar paths through faith over knowledge. The sun is exalted in Aries making this the perfect season for all signs to tap into qualities of willpower, spiritual self-confidence and a creative force within that is always looking for new avenues of expression.
During Aries season we are filled with the force of new possibilities and creative energies to bloom up and out. This is a perfect time to embark on creative or regenerative act, to unfurl your magic and to exist through the essence of valor. This is a time of great potential and a time to share your ideas and visions with the collective. Bravely use your vitality and life force, the fire within you, to set out on adventures. Remember that spring energy is about moving forward. Breaking new ground is an act of bravery. Over the last year, we experienced a huge global shift. Everyone was forced to adapt and share in a global trauma. Those who have survived overcame adversity, and there may still be healing that is underway. This is a time to embrace the new you that is emerging, even if you are still vulnerable. Allow yourself to access the warrior within during Aries season. Catch the gold of ideas and inspiration flowing through those melted Piscean waters. How do you want to be reborn into a new cycle? What battle scars will you celebrate and anoint? This is the season to fully embrace yourself, you of the past, present and future, as you access the power of the warrior’s spring through your own forward movement.
