FINDING BALANCE between polarities is a prominent theme this week. We have a Full Moon on Friday, which means we'll be navigating the opposing energies of the pragmatic Virgo Moon and the visionary Pisces Sun.
And next Sunday, March 20, is the Aries Equinox, when spring begins in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn begins south of the equator. The word equinox derives from the Latin words aequus, meaning "equal," and nox, meaning "night." Equinox occurs twice a year, and is the day when the hours of light and the hours of darkness are closest to being in equal balance.
