The cherry trees are in bloom all over my neighborhood these days. Spring is busy dressing up the hillsides with wildflowers and bursting tender green shoots out of long, bare branches in celebration of this new growing season.
The Sun entered Aries on March 20th and the pace of life advances, yet again. Aries is the time of bold beginnings, spirits are high as the energy increases along with the daylight hours. This past week I’ve seen a family of baby birds, lots of tiny groundhogs dashing about on the hill and a parade of little ducks march through my back yard. Yesterday as I ran in the hills above the golf course a pair baby jack rabbits went bounding across the trail after their mother.
We humans are ready to get busy with new babies of our own as we spring clean our closets, offices and homes pitching those things that are worn out, don’t fit or just aren’t working for us anymore. This frees up time and space for new things and projects we’re enthused about getting into, now.
Aries is the first of the fire signs; its nature is inspired, enthusiastic and bold, pioneering, impulsive and daring. While the Sun is in Aries we are supported in starting new things, just because.
Aries natives characteristically see life as a grand adventure. When they have a bright idea about a new way of doing something or are inspired to do something that hasn’t been done before is reason enough for them. Instinct and impulse followed by the joy of taking action is the Aries way. As the Nike people say, “Just do it!” Breathe life into your inspired ideas and back them up with action just for the fun of it and see what happens.
In this result-focused world it is good to remember that life is a journey, it is what happens in the moment, with each breath and step we take. This moment is your point of choice and therefore your only point of power. Enjoy!
