Sun Enters Aries 2021 — The Chart of the Astrological New Year

Reading Time : 6 minutes

Astrology is the Art of Beginnings. The beginning of our life, the moment we take our first breath, is reflected in our Natal Chart. And in this reflection we can recognize the potential of the life we’ve chosen to live when we came down into this world.

The same happens with the year. The new Astrological Year is born at the very moment when the Sun enters Aries—the first sign. A new cycle starts. And the chart we draw up for that moment represents the potential of the whole year to come.

As we know it’s difficult, if not even impossible, to read properly a chart without the astrological houses. In fact not only the astrological houses tells us which planet in a chart is stronger than the other. But they also give us more details about the area of life (or existence) in which a planetary force shows up.

This is a crucial piece of information that depends on where we are on Earth at the moment the event takes place. Of course analyzing the entrance of the Sun in Aries in all possible latitudes on Earth wouldn’t be an option. However, we can at least make use of Astrocartography to see where and which planets are going to be stronger on Earth during the event.

We report below the astrological chart for the entrance of the Sun in Aries for this year. As you can see the chart starts with the ascendant at 0° Aries since we are not going to take houses into account.

The first thing we can notice is that the Planets are more or less divided into small groups. Hence, let’s analyze them separately according to the group to which they belong. We are going to find this division useful looking at Astrocartography later on.

Happy Spring Equinox 2017

Reading Time : 2 minutesA small green plant as a symbol of the Spring Equinox 2017

Hey everybody, happy Spring Equinox 2017!

Today light and darkness are perfectly balancing each other out. This is the day when we can celebrate the forces of light taking over darkness. The promise of the new light we witness every year at Christmas (Yule, the Wheel) is kept in this day. It’s part of the great process of Nature.

This is a very important date for astrologers. According to our art, this is the first of the year which starts with the entrance of the Sun in Aries. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac, a powerful fire sign that grants us the initial boost typical of new beginnings.

So, what about you?

  • What were your Resolutions for the New Year? After all they are just like seeds, so this is the right time for making them sprout. Start to work on them, as the fire energy of the new year rises.
  • How is it going with Venus Retrograde and Jupiter Retrograde? They are important opportunities to work on our belief system. In addition, they are part of the Astrological Chart of 2017, so they are going to affect us for the following 12 months.
  • What does the warrior side of your personality look like? How did it help you to overcome darkness in the past? Since Mars is the ruler of Aries, this is a great time to reconnect with this powerful archetype.

Also remember to take a break and have a walk in Nature. Sometimes it’s all it takes to clear your mind and recharge the batteries. We are so taken by our daily life that we often forget to simply look around and appreciate beauty. As Dostoevsky once said, beauty will save the world. And what is it, if not symmetry and balance?

Take care and have a good week 🙏

My New Year Resolutions for 2017

Reading Time : 2 minutes

Hey everybody, I hope you had a great time during the holidays and also had a good start to the year! May the light of the new Sun shine before you strong and bright, clearing your thoughts and intentions, warming your soul with enthusiasm and giving you health and vitality to accomplish your goals!

As probably most of you did, I spent these days chilling with friends and family. I really had the need to rest and clear my mind in order to figure out my new year resolutions the best way possible. What about you? Do you have any? This time of the year is always full of hope and good intentions.

New Year Resolutions for the Blog

  • New Text Based Template. I think the reader should have the best experience possible, so I have decided that I’m going for a new text based template. I really like the way they emphasize text appearance making the reading more enjoyable. If it’s going to turn out too complicated I will stick with the one I’m using, readjusting just the font family, size and color.
  • Search Engine Optimization. A friend of mine complained about how difficult it is to find my website googling  “astronomicon”. I really like the name but I’m afraid it’s too hard to remember, not to mention that it is used also in other fields. I don’t think I’m going to do anything drastic—like changing the name of the blog—but I’m definitely going to focus more on SEO.
  • Contents. Blogging isn’t just about posting—it also involves a lot of editing. I’m entering that phase where I feel the need to revisit all the static pages I posted, especially the “about” and “skywatch” sections.
  • Services Section. When I started this blog the main goal was to build a platform that would allowed me to start a small online business in Astrology Consultations. It requires an online store and appointment scheduler which I’ve already set up. Unfortunately the hard part is the international tax management, especially the VAT which in Europe at least is a real mess (each country has its own!).

I don’t want to go too far because we all know how it works with new year resolutionsTwitter —especially if you have too many, right?

Stay tuned on the blog, I’m going to post soon an update about the Cardinal T-Square I mentioned in this article, which is still going to affect us for a while.
