Aries, where the Sun is now, is about initiation; that is, beginnings. It's the ignition of the zodiac, the start of the astrological year, and the Sun in this sign arrives with the surge of energy that pushes life up out of the ground during the Northern Hemisphere spring.

This is well-described by the Uranus-Eris conjunction, the beginning of a new 90-year cycle that's just begun. More

I’m sure you know the incredible release that happens when you are nearing a vacation you’ve been planning, especially if it’s one you’ve been thinking of for a long time. For those of us in the daily grind of a traditional work/life relationship, this may be a vacation we’ve planned for and worked an entire year or even years toward. Maybe you relish the moments that lead up to that one- or two-week paradise, perhaps even adopting an “I don’t care so much” attitude to normal stressors as you get closer to the moment in which you know you will leave it all behind.
