Happy Astrological New Year!

On March 20, the Sun moved into Aries, where it will stay until April 20. This movement marked both the first day of spring and the first day of the astrological year. Out with the old and in with new!

For the past month, we have been dealing with dreamy Piscean energy. Pisces helps us escape the dark days of winter by setting our imaginations free, even if that means disconnecting from living in the thick of reality. It's now time to stop navel-gazing and daydreaming—the call to action is at hand!

As Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, so there is always a joyous exuberance whenever the Sun transits this sign. Aries is the eternal child, and this period will be filled with an innocent playfulness that blazes new trails by throwing caution to the wind. Aries has a boldness, curiosity and supremely charming self-confidence that we can all tap into—especially in love! They don't call it Spring Fever for nothing. Use this month to move on from stale situations and get involved with something new; the Aries Sun will be more than happy to come to your aid.

Aries is also the sign that rules courage and war, and the ability to fight for what you want. The ruler of Aries, Mars, will also enter this sign in April, setting us on Aries overdrive. This explosive energy will plant the seeds for personal revolutions.

It's time to channel your inner Che Guevara and fight for the life and love you want.

This energy is pushing us all to topple old regimes and start from scratch. It's time to take back your freedom from emotional tyrants. Other great dates to take action and fight for your rights are April 11 and 18, when new ideas will help you get rid of the confining cobwebs in your life.

Prepare for crossed-wires: Mercury will be retrograde from March 30 until April 23. During this time, you may have to deal with a lot unforeseen glitches and your best-made plans may go to waste. Computers may crash, so back things up! Travel may be chaotic, so remember it's the journey not the destination that matters. It's best not to launch new projects at this time, but instead concentrate on getting old work done. It's also a good time to get back in touch with the one who got away...
