Planets in Your Horoscope: Sun enters Aries on March 21, 2007

When the Sun enters Aries, the solar new year begins. In most ancient cultures, at least the ones from which we have records, the year began during the spring equinox, not in January. I am sure our ancestors would have thought that beginning the year on January 1 is ridiculous, since everybody can see that nature does not spring back to life until late March.

The Sun is in its exaltation in Aries, which makes sense, since the sun is bright in April, and seems very strong after the cold and dark winter. It is not truly at the apex of its power, as it is in the summer, when the Sun enters its own sign of Leo. But such is the nature of exaltation, making things look a little bit better than they really are.

If the Sun rules an important house in your horoscope, say the house of career, its passage to Aries will be a good time to do career related things. Looking for jobs, asking for raises, and angling for promotions may all be good things to do during this time. When a planet passes through the sign of its exaltation, there’s one degree in that sign in which it is ultra exalted and extremely powerful. When the Sun passes through Aries, it is super exalted between 18.0 and 19.0Ā° of Aries. This will occur on Sunday, April 8, 2007. The Sun would be especially powerful on that day, because Sunday is the day of the week ruled by the Sun (hence the name!).

    If the sun rules the 12th house, can one say that this period would be ideal for issues to do with self discovery and growth?

    Thanks for blog. One thing you’ve turned me on to is noticing when a planet is strong via dignity and and “using” that vibe with the associated house it rules. looking backwards at my life events, it becomes clear.
    One funny observation i had was that ALL my relationships, big and small, began during Suns exaltation in Aries. Sun Rules 7 in my chart. and as you also said..
    “But such is the nature of exaltation, making things look a little bit better than they really are”…How true! forewarned is forarmed. Maybe I’ll focus on relationships when Sun is in Leo and thus see things as they really are! LOL
    Peace, Chris
