Vernal Equinox Ingress Horoscope
Springtime Star Promises For The Zodiacal Year
Celestial Influences for March 20 – June 20, 2017
By Dikki-Jo Mullen
The Ingress Chart is a special predictive horoscope which is calculated four times each year, at the very beginning of each season. It describes the potentials for good or not so good and how to make the brightest and best of what the universe presents. The Ingress chart for Spring, 2017 takes affect on March 20, 2017 at 6:29 am EDT as the Sun enters the first degree of Aries and sets the pace until June 20. In earlier times the vernal equinox was celebrated as New Year’s Day. It’s a time to set intentions and look ahead at the future.
This spring dawns with Venus (retrograde), Mercury and Uranus forming a stellium with the Sun in Aries. This potent Aries influence favors exploring and pioneering inventive ideas, travel and technology. Mars is in Taurus in mutual reception with retrograde Venus, essentially making Mars retrograde as well. Avoid initiating any confrontations. (Note: mutual receptions occur when planets are transiting each other’s ruling signs. This makes them change places in horoscope interpretation. Mutual receptions usually tend to be favorable, providing ways to get out of whatever one gets into). The aggressor always loses under the Mars retrograde. Keep romantic relationships light, it’s a time to look at the consequences of intense involvements. Avoid love triangles or office romances or any situations which hint at unhappiness or abuse, for example. Practice social graces, thoughtful gestures and good manners can be especially rewarding now.
The Taurus influence with the mutual reception favors appreciating music as well as nature. Organic produce and wildcrafting can enhance wellness. It’s a good time to prepare an edible landscape or container gardening. What about planning a hike or camping trip as a spring vacation? Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus. This points to great controversy involving the law. Here in Central Florida the State Attorney is at the center of a death penalty debate in a high profile criminal case while nationally there is much news coverage regarding the appointment of a new Supreme Court Justice.
The Moon is conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius at 27 degrees, within one degree of the Galactic Center. This accents the welfare of animals, situations linked to education and foreign affairs. The Galactic Center is the rotation center of the Milky Way, it’s the Sun our Sun revolves around. It is a massive black hole and a source of tremendous energy. The Galactic Center tends to be a strengthening and fascinating addition when active in any horoscope. The Moon-Saturn conjunction favorably aspects Jupiter and Uranus. New solutions to resolving controversies can emerge. Overall people will desire improvement and employing new, more humanitarian ideals and values.
Six astrological placements are in the fire signs of the zodiac. In many areas the weather will be hot and dry this spring with fire hazards a possibility. Wear sunscreen or hats and sunglasses when outdoors at mid day. Drink plenty of fluids when active physically, it’s easy to get dehydrated. This applies to caring for animals too. I’ve been especially careful to keep the bird bath full of fresh water.
