There is an on-going debate, varying opinions and much confusion about the Age of Aquarius and when it actually began. Let’s clear that up.
First of all, we need to understand the role of the Spring Equinox, which is also known as the Vernal Equinox. This is the moment each year when the Sun enters the first sign of the Zodiac as it traverses the Celestial Equator, Northbound, bringing longer days to the Northern Hemisphere. Quite simply, the Sun commences its annual pilgrimage through the twelve signs of the Zodiac, starting on March 20th every year, as the plane of the Earth’s Equator passes through the center of the Sun.

We all take for granted the sun’s diurnal and seasonal activity and its life-giving energy, but to many civilizations it was also its passage that marked the agricultural and seasonal alterations that were essential for survival and migration. For the ancients the Sun marked the passage of time, as it went through the twelve Celestial Houses of the Zodiac.
It is interesting to note that the Sun itself is one of the orbs that acquires the characteristics of every astrological house, or the personality of each zodiac sign it passes through. When we look deeper into the astrological methods used to divine the planets, we know, in part, the sun is not a planet, by a technical margin. It has a third path of travel known as the precession of the equinoxes, in which it retrogrades around the Zodiac through the twelve signs at the rate of one degree every 72 years.

Are you interested in using crystals and gemstones in your magical workings? There are hundreds of stones to choose from, but which ones you choose will ultimately depend on your intent. Always select crystals and gemstones for use based upon their attributes, and you won’t go wrong.
I love to use amethyst. It is my birthstone and is also the 6th anniversary stone. Amethyst is a form of quartz crystal, and appears in a wide range of purple and violet colors. My favorite color is the deep purple variety.
Amethyst is associated with the element of water, and it is also connected to the water signs of Pisces and Aquarius. One can use amethyst in healing rituals related to treating depression or anxiety, mood disorders, and to relieve stress. Read the rest of this entry »
The Sun moves into Aries upon the Spring Equinox, at the beginning of the astrological year, making March 21st to April 20th the approximate astrological dates for this first sign of the zodiac. Appropriate, considering the Ram’s motto might be “me first!”
Aries, the Ram, is not only the first sign of the zodiac, it is also number one in many other ways. People with a strong Aries influence in their chart are likely to be forthcoming, pioneering, and independent spirits. Just look at the sign’s glyph (symbol), which looks like a ram with its head lowered. It says it all.
Perhaps the most traditionally masculine sign in the zodiac, Aries is ruled by Mars (the god of war), its corresponding color is red, and it is a cardinal (leading) Fire sign. That’s some heady symbolism! No wonder that even the women born under Aries (think warrior types like Sarah Michelle “Buffy” Gellar, Lucy “Xena” Lawless, and pioneering feminist Gloria Steinem) are likely to have nerves of steel… or perhaps of diamond, another Arian symbol.

Aquarians are the free spirits, the star people, the innovators – independent, intellectual, and humanitarian. You also enjoy variety, are unconventional, and often welcome change.
You may seem aloof at times, but your mind is pointed toward the future and the stars. You are the Water Bearer, and your symbol is water, but you are not a water sign. Your element is Air and a fixed sign in the Zodiac. You pour out your ideas freely and feel that there is a never ending flow of abundance. Read the rest of this entry »

A number of clients have asked me how astrology can be used to determine a good time to have elective surgery. It does very much depend on the person’s natal chart, but here are some general guidelines for planning the timing of surgery and what to avoid.
When not to have surgery
1. Never when the Moon is in Virgo, Gemini, Pisces, or Sagittarius.
2. Never five days before, or after a Full Moon
3. Not when the Moon is void, of course, because it poses a high risk for complications. Read the rest of this entry »
