Welcome to Aries season and Happy Astrological New Year! After the watery, emotional, and vaguely overwhelming season of Pisces, we’ve transitioned into a new realm.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and it begins with the Spring Equinox–a period of rebirth and rejuvenation. Tend to your vision and manifest it into its truest and fullest colors–this astrological season is here to help you do just that. During this time opportunities will be abundant, but don’t let that trick you. Tap into your assertive self in order to attain these celestial effects. Although there will be a general feeling of anticipation, ambition, and boldness, cardinal signs (Cancer, Capricorn and Libra) will be affected the most this Aries season.
Aries is a sign known to be brave–the new moon in Aries on April 5th will bring even more energy encompassing a refreshing start, self assertion, and independence.

Following the new moon Jupiter goes into retrograde on April 10th –unlike the buzz surrounding Mercury retrogrades Jupiter retrogrades last for 120 days and allows us to dive deeper into our personal belief systems, visions–a sort of spiritual introspection.
