“The equinoxes mark the exact moments when the Earth’s axis, as it revolves around the Sun in its
Equinox will occur earlier every four years because of a phenomenon called “precession of the equinoxes”.
This astronomical feature is why the Vedic Sky map is identical to an astronomer’s map – and why Vedic Astrology tells you where the planets literally are when you look up to the sky. The Western astrology is based on the Tropical zodiac. This makes the Western astrology maps aligned with how the Earth was 1500 years ago.
March Equinox occurs on March 20 according to astronomical calculations. Some news reports have mentioned Equinox is on March 19 – that is by another method of calculating equinox.
See the blog post on the Precession of the Equinoxes to understand why Spring is occurring in earlier degrees of Pisces.
We are in the Age of Pisces not Aquarius everyone!
The New Moon is in Pisces at the time of March equinox each year. This is the astronomical map or sidereal sky map that is the same as what Vedic Astrology uses.
So, according to Vedic Astrology and astronomy, we are in the Age of Pisces – which is a time of completion and the ability for society to build Peace. We are reminded every March Equinox that we are able to choose Peace as individuals and as a society.
May Equinox inspire you to spread calm and peace in your daily interactions. You get to choose how you are going to react to your environment. I see you as a torch bearer of kindness.
