Spring EQ 2014: Sun Aries-Moon Scorpio
On March 20, 2014 at 12:57:09 pm est, the Sun reaches 00Aries00:00 in the Tropical Zodiac and the Spring season begins here in the Western Hemisphere and the 2014 astrological year ensues.
With Sun in Aries, the Mars-ruled sign of warriors and activists, and Moon (We the People in mundane astrology) in the Mars-Pluto-ruled sign of Scorpio, we may glean a bit of information on the character of the season while remembering that all Aries Ingress horoscopes provide a background influence for the entire year.
Aries is a Fire sign, of course, and Scorpio a Water sign and together their energies give something of a steamy nature to the proceedings. Steam purifies but can scorch as well and this supports the Spring EQ 2014 chart implications–have a peek and you’ll see expansive Jupiter rising along with Sirius, a star known as The Scorcher, and the Dog Star.
Plus, in Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars we find Sirius (worshiped in ancient Egypt as Isis–and as a goddess in Washington DC as well–in Sumerian, Inanna) described with keywords, ‘The fire of immortality’ which relates, as you know, to planet Venus as Morning and Evening star…in mythology, descending into the underworld (becoming invisible on Earth) for part of the year.
America’s natal Sun @13Cap19 (July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA) conjoins the zodiacal position of Sirius which has actually moved closer by precession and is now positioned at 14Cancer.
So! Spring 2014’s Sun Ari-Moon Sco blend denotes a season imbued with intensity, power, and wit. We’ll be treated to more self-dramatizing from ego-driven Washington and elsewhere along with some back-stabbing from those thought to be friends. (In DC, my former place of residence, you know what they say: if you want a friend, get a dog. Or maybe a Dog Star?)
Cynicism, brazen behavior, and pushiness will be perhaps even more prevalent than usual as the 2014 mid-term election campaigns heat up and politicians attempt to scope points with their constituents. Most people are feeling purposeful this Spring but to whose benefit (?) as self-belief takes the lead. Hidden corners are probed for secrets are always revealed when Scorpio is involved–and, until the April 29th Solar Eclipse (9Tau), we remain under the influence of the 16 North Scorpio Solar Eclipse of November 3, 2013 (11Sco15) with its Uranus-Neptune vibes of bright ideas and welcomed solutions.
All in all, Spring 2014 promises a season and a year of ambition, hard work, and single-minded determination and we’re all ready for new experiences and the bright ideas that bring them. Jupiterian improvement in circumstances and investment in job creation would be welcomed changes, too, yet it seems like Politics, that ‘organized system of hatreds’ (asserted Henry B. Adams), ruins almost everything it touches–and it’s doing so on purpose.
Now with Spring being a time of new beginnings and new life sprouting up, let’s close this post with a quote from an author who was born during a Sun Ari-Moon Sco interlude, one Henry James–imho, his words are a slap in the face of totalitarian Global Government types and puppet monarchists the world over!
“Live all you can…it doesn’t matter what you do in particular, so long as you have lived your life. If you haven’t had that what have you had?”
Wishing a Happy Spring 2014 to All!
