HAPPY 1ST DAY OF SPRING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG! I'm so excited, the Spring couldn't get here fast enough for this GYRL. Enjoy the Day Luvies!
Here's a lil tid bit about the Vernal (Spring) Equinox:
What is the vernal equinox?
Attwood: The true definition of the equinox is when the Earth is in its orbit at a point where day and night are equal. That's why they call it the equinox. The sun is directly overhead for people on the equator at noon. And for everyone else, we get equal day and night.
Barwick: The vernal equinox kicks off the beginning of the astrological year. It marks zero degrees of the tropical sign of Aries. It is the beginning of the zodiac as we understand it in the practice of Western astrology.
What are the implications of today's equinox?
Attwood: As the earth goes around the sun it appears that the overhead sun seems to be creeping towards the north. For the next three months it will continue to creep north until the first day of summer, when it's at its farthest point north. As the sun gets higher that means it's able to concentrate more heat on the ground.
Barwick: Somebody who's born at 0 degrees Aries – that's a particularly strong Aries person ... William Shatner, Captain Kirk, has kind of the ultimate Aries energy in a way: going forth, boldly going where no one has gone before, pioneering, being in command, leading intuitively. This is Aries.
