Here’s a reality shift for you: March, not January, was once the beginning of the new year. That’s why Aries is considered the “first sign” of the zodiac and the start of the celestial year—it occupies the first 30° of celestial longitude, where the sun rises and begins its trajectory toward summer and the Tropic of Cancer. Are you surprised? To me, madness is that surprise, the dissonance between what you know and trust and a new, different truth. Right now, as we move between when the zodiac ends and begins, we have a collective chance to tear away from our hollow expectations and leap closer to our true selves. Be forewarned—stepping or even running toward our whole selves is no “happily ever” story. In fact, the wildness of the journey, like the astrological year, is only beginning. But it can be mad fun. You down?
