Vernal Equinox: Balancing and Harmonizing Relationships

The Vernal Equinox, colloquially known as the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, arrives on Thursday, March 20. After a long, hard winter of much discontent across the United States, with record-cold temps and too many snowstorms, we’re all ready for some serious renewal. The same goes for our relationships, which have suffered the same cranky coldness as our bodies and our homes. It’s beyond the time for all of us to defrost.

As the days lengthen and the Earth warms, our relationships heat up and our emotions emerge from hibernation. The thaw may be instant or it may take place over a few weeks, but the spring will make you crave connection with friends and family.

When the Sun moves into Aries, as it does on the Equinox, the partnership polarity is highlighted. Aries is the sign of the self, with a “me-first” approach to life. Its opposite sign is Libra, the sign of relationships and harmony. That’s why balance is so important at this time of year -- precisely because it may seem elusive.

This spring promises to be extremely intense, especially in April, and your relationships are apt to go through many ups and downs. But you can use the Vernal Equinox to your advantage, before the astrological rollercoaster takes over.

In the days leading up to March 20, focus on balance and harmony. You may feel seized by drama and fiery emotions, but try to practice a peaceful approach to even the most out-of-control urges. Take a breath before unleashing a verbal tirade or throwing a plate. Learn to control and direct your anger, not to repress it. There is a healthy way to tell your loved ones how you feel, but this is a skill that must be learned.
