This could be disconcerting if you're typically cerebral, because thoughts won't connect in the way that you're used to. Those of you who are more comfortable with dreams and imagination will find that this is a time when you can easily access your creative genius.

The Spring Equinox is always a special time for you because this is when the Sun rises on a new season of hopeful launches, promising ventures and maybe-this-time-things-will-work-out romances. This is you at your most optimistic, so you don't want to undershoot the mark or play it safe. On the contrary, the time when the Sun is in Aries (March 20 - April 18) is when you want to think big and paint on the largest possible canvas. The Sun is exalted in Aries, so the more bold and colorful your strokes, the better!
