The Sun enters Aries today, which marks the beginning of the Spring Equinox. Happy astrological new year!
The Spring equinox gives us all the gift of a clean slate. It’s the season for starting anew, which means it’s a good time to enter new relationships, learn new knowledge, and experience novel wisdom.
To learn how the spring equinox affects your sign, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
The Sun has moved into your very own first house of the self today, dear Aries. This means your already strong sense of confidence and self-esteem is boosted even more. And when you’re confident, you don’t rely on the validation of others to feel good about yourself. How does this manifest in your love life? Well, you don’t have crushes to validate your sense of self. You easily see the red flags because your priority is your well-being, and you wouldn’t want to sacrifice that for an unsure love—you already love yourself, after all. It’s a great energy to have during the Spring Equinox.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
The dawn of the spring equinox brings you novel realizations, dearest Taurus. With the sun shining in your house of the subconscious, you might want to look into your hidden desires—they might just shine some light into what you want in your love life. Have you been dreaming of a close friend that you never really thought of in a romantic way? Perhaps you actually have feelings for them that you’re now just finding out about. Do you sometimes find yourself fantasizing about being single, despite being in a committed relationship? Maybe that’s a sign that you don’t love your partner as much as you thought. Listen to your subconscious, ram, and you will find the truths you’ve been looking for.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, the Spring Equinox is a time for new beginnings, and in order to start anew, some things need to end. Venus ventures into your zone of endings, which means it might be time to end a love affair that’s not serving you. If it’s hurting you more than it makes you happy, it’s time to let go. The Sun takes shelter in your house of friendships, so don’t worry about being alone if you leave this toxic relationship—you will be among your friends, and they will support you through the hard times. This tells you to be courageous enough to leave what hurts you so you can come home to those who care.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Love is not in the picture for you today, Cancer, but don’t fret! Instead, get ready for some good news from work today. The Sun shines in your house of career and long-term goals, so you might get that promotion you’ve been really wanting. Venus dances in your 9th house of wisdom today, so even if it’s not time for love yet, you’re slowly learning new things about love that you’ve never had before. You’re learning that romantic love is not everything that matters, and today, you’re putting your career first.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You’ve been rash with your decisions about sex and your body in the past, Leo, but the beginning of the Spring Equinox gives you a chance to start anew. The sun is in your house of wisdom and Venus is in your house of sex, which means you’re gradually learning to take care of your body and only share it with people who care about you. You’re not going to use sex anymore to self-sabotage—instead, you’ll feel empowered when you engage in it with the right people.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, the sun is shining bright in your house of sharing and intimacy. This means you’re learning to open yourself up to other people, and you’re starting to feel safe enough to let down your guard and bring your walls down to other people. With mercury in the same house, you will have some benefit to tell stories you’ve long withheld about yourself and your past in order to make a strong romantic connection with another. Don’t worry if you feel sudden bursts of emotion as you let your walls down—the moon is in your 7th house of relationships as well, which means that it’s perfectly fine to show your feelings to this person. Don’t be afraid it will ruin the relationship, because this vulnerability will strengthen it instead.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, have you ever heard of that one line in romance movies that goes, “I like myself better when I’m with you?” Well, with the sun in your 7th house of relationships today, that’s exactly how you feel with a romantic partner. You feel that they bring out the best in you, and there’s no one else you’d rather be. However, as the Sun also represents our sense of self, be careful not to put too much of your worth in this relationship. Even if the relationship is good and stable, Saturn in your 6th house reminds you that the responsible thing to do is to not put your all into this love affair.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Venus is twirling her mystical dress in your 5th house of romance today, dear Scorpio, and you’re filled with great joy when you interact with a romantic partner. It is a good time to go out on dates and spend time together with this person. Even if this love affair is a long-term, committed relationship, the Spring Equinox blesses you with the gift of romance, and it is a good time to reignite some lost spark in the relationship.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, the sun shines down on your zone of romance today, and your day is filled with romantic energy. You feel drawn to flirt with a romantic interest, and with Mercury in the same house, your words are filled with fairy dust and you use these to enamor them towards your orbit. Jupiter blesses you with luck in your love affairs today, dear archer, which means that you will be granted the gift of good fortune in your romantic pursuits.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Romance is not in the picture for you today, dear Capricorn, but the Spring Equinox brings the sun to shine light in your 4th house of home. It is a good time to go back to your roots and spend time with your family. Venus is in the 3rd house of the mind, so you’re starting to realize that romance is not all there is. However, Uranus is in the same house, so be careful not to let yourself get overcome with bitterness due to the lack of romantic energy in your life today.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, the sun is shining down in your zone of the mind today. The Spring Equinox is bringing you clarity—you’re slowly starting to find the answers to questions that have long confused you, and your idea of love is starting to mature. With Venus having taken shelter in your 4th house of home, you’re attracted to people who make you feel safe, who can offer security, and who remind you of how it feels to come home after a long day. Mars is in your house of romance, so even if this love affair reminds you of coming home, it doesn’t mean it won’t be filled with passion, because oh, it is passionate, and you will feel it.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Be careful not to put your self-worth in material possessions today, dear Pisces. The Spring Equinox brings the sun to shine down on your zone of money and material possessions. Don’t confuse overspending and mindless purchases with self-love. Saturn in your 1st house of the self reminds you of your limitations, that self-love exists outside of these material things. Remember: you’re worth more than your material possessions, Pisces. You’re still worth loving even without your money and your possessions.
