  • The SUN is in Aries! Happy birthday, Aries!

  • Let's break this down. What's a Sun Sign? Simply put, a Sun Sign is that part of your chart that most people already know. (This is what you answer when some drunk and/or well-meaning person stuck in the 1970s slurs to you "Hey baby, what's your sign?") This is the sign that you look up when you read your astrology column.

    As of a few days ago, the Sun went into Aries. What's an Aries? Who is an Aries?

    An Aries is a person born between March 23 and April 20 (roughly; some dates may vary). Aries folks are known for their motivation, intention, and moxie. They want to get things done and by God, they want to get it done NOW. RIGHT NOW. Waiting does not work with these people. (A relative of mine is a double Aries - she has an Aries Sun and an Aries Rising Sign - and she lives her life by the phrase "If not now, when?")

    Famous Aries people that we have known and loved have been

    Lucy Lawless (star of the tv show Xena; born March 28, 1968): Frankly, there could not be a more perfect Aries example than Xena: Warrior Princess who battled on for six seasons, kicked the snot out of bad guys, and made a career out of being the Warrior Woman. (Lucy Lawless is also a Sun Sign Aries)

    Russell Crowe (Born April 7, 1964): Another Aries Sun who played an Aries type in 2000's hit film Gladiator, both Crowe and the main character in Gladiator are typical Aries types: fiery, aggressive, and dripping with the full intent to kick someone's butt.

    Karen Blixen, author (Born April 17, 1885): Karen Blixen (also known by her pen name, Isak Dinesen) was played by Oscar winner Meryl Streep in 1982's epic film Out of Africa, a film about Blixen's life on a Kenyan coffee plantation. There's a lot of scenes of Karen Blixen  looking determinedly over her land, lugging riffles everywhere, and clearly showing Aries qualities of independence and fearlessness.

    Rachel Maddow (April 1, 1973): The Oxford graduate turned MSNBC-talk-show-host is an Aries Sun. She single handedly calls out Republicans and Democrats alike on her show. Since this isn't a political blog, though, here she is telling us how to make cocktails.

    And that's your Aries update!

    Have a great Friday,

    How will these changes affect you?Read below. And...not sure what your Sun Sign or Rising Sign is? Your Sun Sign is your birth sign. Are you a Libra, Scorpio, or Gemini? Mostly that is the one everyone knows. The Rising Sign (also known as the Ascendant) is the sign that calculates your entire chart and life's purpose. To calculate your free Rising Sign, go here.

    Manifestation Mondays (and a Blazing Blog!)

    Esther Hicks on - "how patience is not necessary." It's about NOW. Oprah hosted books (hello The Power of Now!). But really? Really? How can that be so? Because patience is a virtue. We're taught that. We must be patient. Wow, I can just hear my inner five year old going "But WHERE IS IT?" Well, Hicks says your energy brings it. Call it out and it comes. Is it that simple? Yep. It just takes a ton of practice (and hint: we make it very hard on ourselves).

    And, "it's that time again!" My good friend, tarot card reader and certified professional hypnotist Bob Decker and I host Bob Decker's Blazing Blog every Friday. In this one, I go into great detail about the recent Supermoon in Virgo - and other big astrological changes.

    Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to come to Happy Ganesh and be a part of it. I appreciate so much your words, your thoughts and your presence.

    I did a wonderful event at Gilda's Club today and - again - I am blown away that I get to do what I love. Gilda's Club is personally meaningful to me and I love being able to go back with Happy Ganesh and meet such wonderful brave, fantastic people.

    Have an honest and eager week, friends, as we move into Sun in Aries. (More on that next time!)
