Spring Equinox 2024: Aries Season & The Astrological New Year

Winter is coming to a close, and the anticipation of Spring is building. What parts of yourself are you ready to leave behind? Is there a new version of “you” you’re ready to embrace? Maybe it’s a self-care routine or a hobby you’re looking forward to cultivating. As the days grow longer, we begin awakening from our winter slumber. Similar to the way Mother Nature sheds its old layers to make room for new growth, this is an opportunity to release habits, behaviors, and thought patterns that no longer serve you.

Grab your vision board and get to manifesting! This year’s Spring Equinox will occur on March 19, 2024, at exactly 11:06 PM EST, officially marking the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. In many cultures around the world, the Spring Equinox is associated with themes of renewal, rebirth, and fertility as plants begin to bloom, animals emerge from hibernation, and the natural world awakens. It's a powerful time to set intentions, visualize your goals, and align yourself with the energy of growth and transformation.

Are you ready to begin again? While most of us refer to this as “springing forward,” the Equinox marks the sun’s ingress into zero degrees of Aries, which is also the start of a brand-new astrological year. Happy New Year! (No, really.) As previously mentioned, springtime is associated with spiritual renewal. And when considering the essence of Aries’ cardinal fire, our collective rebirth takes on a dynamic and fiery energy.

The first sign of the zodiac, Aries embodies the spirit of initiation and new beginnings. A spark of fire (which also happens to be a symbol of fertility and creation), Aries season inspires us to take action, assert ourselves, and blaze toward new trails. Just as the ram boldly charges ahead, undeterred by obstacles, we, too, are encouraged to seize the day in every way. What new opportunities are you ready to pursue with courage and determination? What obstacles do you need to overcome?

Aries season will be especially pivotal this year and for more reasons than one. First and foremost, it’s eclipse season, which signals life-altering changes. A full moon lunar eclipse in Libra on March 25, followed by a new moon solar eclipse in Aries, will bring a surge of intensity and transformation. This celestial phenomenon is known to catalyze profound shifts that shake us out of complacency, and this year is no exception.

Just a few days before eclipse season begins, the sun (in Aries) will meet with powerhouse Pluto in the forward-thinking sign of Aquarius. While forming an invigorating sextile, this unique synergy brings forth a profound sense of empowerment, urging us to assert ourselves and break free from what no longer serves us in order to create positive change.

Mars, Aries’ celestial ruler, will also ingress into Pisces on March 22, inviting us to approach challenges with compassion and flexibility rather than force or aggression. Shortly after, Mercury will station retrograde in Aries on April 1, where it will remain until it goes direct on the 25th. Consider this an opportunity to slow down and reassess your plans for the future.

Venus will also be making its debut in Aries on April 5, reminding us of the value of pursuing what we desire with confidence. Moreover, this Venus transit adds a sense of fiery passion and spontaneity to our relationships.
