Intuitive Astrology: The March Equinox and the Start of the Astrological Year 2024

march equinox astrology 2024

March 19, 2024, brings the Equinox, a time of equal night and day and the beginning of Spring or Autumn, depending on which hemisphere of the world you live in.

It is said that on the Equinox, the energy grid of the planet moves into higher harmony, allowing us to soak in the healing powers of Mother Nature with greater ease. With the energy grid of the planet alive and awakened, we can also replenish our own energy centers of the body and send our thoughts and intentions out into the Universe for creation.

Along with this powerful Equinox energy, we also celebrate the start of the astrological year on this day. This is because, in Western Astrology, the March Equinox coincides with the start of Aries Season, the first sign of the zodiac.

As we move into the first sign of the zodiac, we begin a new journey, a new trip around the Sun, where we get to experience the energies and vibration of each of the twelve zodiac signs all over again.

The March Equinox, therefore, becomes a significant power day in our year where we can celebrate the new, welcome the fresh starts it brings, and set intentions for the year to come.

In 2024, the energies of this time are heightened by the upcoming Libra Lunar Eclipse on March 25th. Although this Eclipse is almost a week away from the Equinox, we tend to feel Eclipses up to a month before and a month after they arrive.

Eclipses tend to bring high intensity, transformative energy that can rattle and upend our lives. Eclipses can affect us all differently, but on some level, we all experience a transformation.

The March 25th Eclipse is one of endings, and our focus may be centered around a relationship or relationship dynamics that we have been playing out through our childhood wounding. This Eclipse can help to unravel these inner workings and bring to our attention all that needs to be completed so we can create the relationships we desire.

With the Eclipse on the horizon, we can use the energies of the Equinox to set intentions for what we wish to manifest in our lives. We can use its powerhouse of energy to create goals, change our routine, and take action on healthy habits. While it’s always a good time to do this, we are likely to feel more supported as we take these types of actions.

How to use the Energies of the March Equinox

Allow new inspiration, new ideas, and new perspectives to filter into your being under the March Equinox. Allow yourself to wash away all of the old, outdated and outworn thoughts, feelings, situations, and habits that are no longer serving your highest good.

Move through your body and cleanse and release every cell. Make it a point to take a deep breath and breathe out all that no longer supports. Hold the highest vision of yourself.

This energy is a gift, but it’s up to us to use it. Go outside on this day and surround yourself with the healing power of nature, pull an oracle or tarot card for yourself, meditate, journal, create intentional time around what you wish to fill this new year with and what you wish to heal. The Universe will be on your side.

Here is a quick reference list of some ways to utilize this energy:

  • Cleanse your auric field
  • Spend time in nature
  • Set goals for the new year and take action on those goals (even a micro-action is good)
  • Start a new healthy habit/ end unhealthy habits
  • Reorganize your schedule to be more aligned
  • Clear the clutter and cleanse your space
  • Pull an oracle/tarot card or have a spiritual reading
  • Get focused on what you wish to attract
