The Wicca Book of Days for March 21 – Aries, the Ram

The Wicca Book of Days for March 21

Aries, the Ram

The arrival of the Spring, or Vernal Equinox – which usually falls on March 21, give or take a day – also marks the start of the astrological year as the zodiacal month of Pisces gives way to that of Aries, the Ram. Imagine a headstrong ram lowering its head, kicking u its heels, and charging forward, and you’ll understand the kind of springtime energy that Aries unleashes. And small wonder: its influences are Mars, which supplies bloody-mindedness and aggression; fire, which provides hot-blooded energy; a masculine, or positive, polarity, which removes inhibitions; and a cardinal quadruplicity, which contributes initiative and pushiness.

Furze Day

According to the Celtic tree month calendar, March 21 is the day of the Furze (or gorse). You could mark this by bringing a sprig of Furze (Ulex) inside, for instance or researching the Gorse (Ulex europeaus) Bach Flower Remedy.
