When you think of Spring, what comes to your mind? Rain showers rushing through a cloudy gray sky? Is it the field of wildflowers that sprout from the soil once the Sun rises? There is just something pastoral and optimistic about Spring. After all, the natural world is never more alive than in Spring.
With all of this in mind, how could Spring be a tough time for someone? Well, frankly, Spring is the start of something new, and some new beginnings are hard-fought. If I’m being honest here, the 2021 Spring Equinox will be challenging for Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, but the weirdness will only be temporary.
The Spring Equinox takes place on March 20 at 5:37 a.m. ET. This is the time when Spring begins, but it is much more than that. This is also the time when the Sun enters Aries, the first sign of the zodiac wheel. This means, you guessed it, the Spring Equinox also serves as the Astrological New Year.
Even though you might be tempted to throw a party and like to have a reason to celebrate, there’s a chance that not all zodiac signs are feeling so excited for this cosmic shift. If your Sun or Rising Sign falls under the element earth, the timing of this transition may seem more thoughtful and introspective than wild and thrilling.
When the Sun enters a fire sign, it tends to put the earth signs through the wringer (at least emotionally). The Fire Sign Seasons highlight subconscious wounds and encourage critical inner healing for those born under Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. However, it is an integral part of your annual astrological journey. So buckle up, because it’s about to get real.
You initiate a period of introspection and rest. The Spring Equinox represents a profound and moving change, Taurus. This is the time when the Sun enters your 12th house of spirituality, making you focus on internal affairs rather than external affairs.
You may want to spend this time on your own, indulging in solitude while exploring your inner workings.
You can spend this time remembering things from your past, things you haven’t worked on yet, as the cosmos encourages you to finally reconcile those repressed memories before they release their hold on your mind. This is what healing looks like.
You are embracing an era of liberation and renewal. Even though the clouds start to part once Spring begins, the darkness can make you feel like it’s unfolding for you, Virgo. The Spring Equinox is also the time when the Sun enters your eighth house of death and rebirth.
The energy during this time is thick and heavy as you work through the transformation process. To transform, you have to accept the fact that some things aren’t meant to last forever.
Around the time of the Spring Equinox, you might realize that there are some things that need to come to an end before more exciting things can begin.
You will feel a deeply personal and sentimental change. Even though Spring means the animals come out of hibernation and frolic through the flowers, you might prefer to stay home for a while and engage in full hermit mode, Capricorn.
The Spring Equinox is also when the Sun enters your fourth house in your home and family.
It may make you want to create inherent household goals, such as redesigning your space or spending more time with loved ones. However, it could also make you work on the baggage of your childhood while exploring your roots.
