Cosmic Relief: Enchanting your Equinox

The equinox is a time when daytime and nighttime take up equal parts of the day.  There are two equinoxes in the year, Spring and Autumn, of which the former is special because it marks the beginning of the new astrological year as well as Aries season. 

Traditions around the world celebrate the spring equinox as a time of rebirth. As a new cycle begins, we find ourselves transitioning from the harsh insular winter months full of introspection into the bright light of the summer ahead. The trick of navigating the transitions in the zodiac wheel is our capacity to flow with the energy each season brings, even though those energies may oppose each other. 

On Mar. 20, we move from the emotional and cosmic waters of Pisces into a new fiery and excitable Aries season. Aries is the ‘youngest’ sign of the zodiac. It has been traditionally viewed as the beginning of the astrological cycle, with Pisces being the last, and more mature sign. One of the most relatable parts of the zodiac wheel is that it suggests we are beings in constant evolution. In March, we take the deep lessons learned in the previous cycle and begin anew.

A time to reflect back and move forward, this month gives us an opportunity to focus on what we want most and give it that much-needed thrust forward. To help chart your course, here are your monthly horoscopes based on your sun and rising signs along with another cosmic playlist to enchant your spring equinox. 


There is a lot brewing under the surface this month. Don’t be surprised if you get some unexpected news about that thing you’ve been avoiding. 


Your career will be asking a lot of your attention. It’s likely you’re going to find support and opportunities through friendship and community this month.


The struggle to heal old patterns is real this month. Work at breaking these old habits because doing so may open up career opportunities.

Hibernation is the name of the game. There’s a lot happening around you, and you’re likely feeling excited about it. But you’re more interested in pampering yourself than participating in the fun.
