March 20 marks the spring equinox (also called the vernal equinox) in the Northern Hemisphere, the start of the astrological new year, and the beginning of Aries season. Talk about a busy day! As the Sun crosses the equator, we will begin to welcome longer daylight hours as spring officially begins. And on March 20, during the equinox, we’ll have equal daylight and evening hours as we celebrate rebirth and new beginnings. With the New Moon in Aries occurring on March 21, this is an extra potent time to set intentions and manifest your seasonal dreams.
