The Sun enters Aries~ Happy Spring! Happy New Year!
Comes in at 12:23pm est. on Tuesday, March 21st. This moment is marked by the Sun entering the Zodiacal Hemisphere known as Aries. Aries is the 1st of the zodiac signs and so we arrive at the beginning of the Zodiacal New Year.
This one is extra special and auspicicious
As seen below in the Astroligical chart for this Equinox (which occurs at 0 degrees Aries) the Moon is also at 0 degrees Aries. This means that as the Spring Equinox comes in so too does the Aries New Moon. This type of celestial event is rare. Also notice the line with the arrow which is called the midheaven; this means that not only are we marking the beginning of Spring, and the beginning of the Lunar cycle of the first sign of the zodiac, but this moment takes place with Sun at its Zenith. Lots of implications for positive yang energy! This configuration supports the healing and evolutionary work that Masculines have been embarking upon as of especially the past couple of years. Yay!
The Four Corners of the Year~ The Equinoxes and the Solstices
The Equinoxes and Solstices mark the four corners of the year as marked by when the sun enters each of the four cardinal signs of the zodiac: Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra. The Day the Sun enters Aries is also marked by equal day and equal night; hence the "Equinox" (which literally means "equal night"). From this day forward, each day will continue to grow longer and longer until we reach the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice which is also the first day of Cancer
Aries, Mars and Ogun
Fire (illuminates, purifies, protects)
Spring marks the turning point in the year when there are more daylight hours and warmer temperatures. Aries’ ruling planet is Mars and is often represented by the Ram, with its fiery and confrontational nature. Some of its keywords include: Confidence, Courage, Passion, Sexual Energy, First, Warrior, Competition and Self.
Aries’ color is Red and it’s shades include Oranges. Aries rules the head. It’s Orisha correlate is Ogun the God of Iron, Medicine and Weaponry. This is a good time to begin a more rigorous fitness regiment, to practice Yogic or Tantric Arts or to take up a Martial Art!
The New Moon in Aries aligns with the Spring Equinox:
Divine Masculine Awakening, Ascension & Activation Portal
This moment highlights the Divine Masculine. Baba Ogun brings a sense of no nonsense to whatever he does. He’s almost always minding his own business in solitude. As seen in the image above, Ogun correlates with the heart chakra. See the 7 goals associated with Ogun and the heart chakra.
Channeling the Divine Masculine
This moment heralds a fresh new beginning for our Divine Masculine counterparts. He is emerging from the shadows of his faults and past transgressions out into the light of a new day. He’s been tending to his healing and linking up with other brothers who are doing the same.
He’s realizing that with all and any harm that he has inflicted that he was more so hurting himself.
He is collecting pertinent information about himself and his journey and the connection to and extensions of his bloodline that he represents and lives out.
He’s no longer interested in running toward substitutes for the True Love he knows he really needs.
He is feeling courageous enough to tell the truth about his flaws and to be responsible for his own life, mistakes, choices and hence happiness.
He now knows that he has never been responsible for all of her pain although he has added to it at times. He's ready to tell the truth abot that.
He can sense that by taking responsibility for her pain that he could then fall into the trap of thinking he’s responsible for her joy. He is no longer into regarding her as powerless over her own life…He will not dishonor her goddess nature in the way.
He is coming out from under the blame, shame and guilt and ready to align himself with an empowered loving mate, his divine equal complement, his Divine Bleoved.
He is focusing on his healing and on being as self aware and loving as he can. It’s his devotion, his practice.
He can feel that in his new chosen focus, that everything in his world will benefit from this force of love and become enhanced and uplifted in it, including him.
He is becoming the caliber of Man he would honor and trust with a woman he cared about.
He’s Ready for Love, Inner Love, Deep Love, Divine Love…
My dear Sistahs will you be ready for him when he’s an elevated, ascended, expanded and activated Love King?
Lets begin or continue to celebrate our Men as they grow in their Healing and may we find ourselves focusing diligently on our own inner work.

Warmth, Movement, Mojo and Balance
The Sun is shining, the birds are chirping and we certainly are feeling the shift of more exposure to warmth and light in our bodies. Our cells are thawing and ready to move faster as prompted by increased warmth. Quite naturally there is an increase in circulation and endorphins and hence libido. Flowers are blooming and the grass is growing; all contributing to the burst of freshness and Eros we are all enjoying.
With the day and night being equal, we are also called into balance, a kind of still point. So if you find yourself bouncing off the walls with excitement and activity, be prepared for the following crash and chill.
We can practice balance when we are mindful of not going back and forth between extremes. We can also practice literal balance by practicing certain Yoga poses. When we observe Sacred Sexual Practices we balance and harmonize our energies. Observing a cleanse is a great way to balance all of the eating we do throughout the year.
Fast, Detox, Cleanse for Vitality
Observing a Cleanse of some kind is a great way to bring in the New Season of Spring. Due to the warmer weather we can eat cooler foods and decrease our caloric intake more safely than when we are subject to colder weather. Observing dietary changes at the change of Seasons can help our bodies adjust hormonally and facilitate smoother moods and metabolism.
Ways of Observing a 24hour Fast, Detox, Cleanse
1.) Fast on Raw Foods
2.) Fast on Liquids ie Water, Smoothies, Teas
3.) Fast on Water Only
