March 2024: A World without Equinoxes or Solstices

Vedic Astrology Readings for March 2024: Vernal Equinox and Lunar Eclipse

In March we come to the Vernal Equinox, when for about a month night and day are of about equal length, hence the word equinox.  There is one day when they are exactly equal and that is the Vernal Equinox, March 20.

It is thereafter that one starts to gain dominance, for the Northern Hemisphere it is the day, while in the Southern it is night.  For the Southern their part of the globe actually moves away from the sun, hence the decreased light.

Now if the Earth’s axis was exactly perpendicular to the plane of the solar system (called the ecliptic) there would be no changes of season, we would be in one season all year all the time.  Kind of boring it seems to me.

There would be no tropical zodiac either; i.e if the Earth was exactly perpendicular there would be no precessional wobble that causes a moving zodiac phenomenon.  There would be no equinoxes and solstices, either as I see it.  Life could get quite boring indeed.

Thank God the Earth is inclined 23 degrees obliquely to the ecliptic because now we can have astrologers who argue which zodiac is better. 🙂

I always say that we have two celestial “systems”, one based on the seasons governing terrestrial life and its inherent mundanity, while the other which is literally based on the stars stretching out to the ends of the Universe governing such things as eternity, destiny, and karma.  You might be able to tell which one I prefer.

We also have another celestial event, a little bit more confined to our solar system, a lunar eclipse.  I’m not talking about the big one next month that marks a dark trail across the United States, which everyone is taking about.  This is the preceding lunar eclipse on March 25, 2024.

Eclipses always come in pairs, and lunar and solar.  They occur basically twice a year as new and full moons occur near the Moon’s nodes; i.e. where the orbits of the Moon and Sun intersect as seem from the Earth.

Think of them as powerful new and full moons, which are so close in alignment that they literally block out the light of the other luminary.  I’ll get into that more next month, but I would anticipate a bit of disorientation and mishaps to occur right around March 25.  The human emotional-electrical system may get a bit scrambled as these celestial influences bear down upon us.

During lunar eclipses for a brief time, the Moon turns reddish-black, almost the color of blood, which is part of why ancients may have seen eclipses as harbingers of misfortune, death or loss.  That’s kind of an old fatalistic view of things, eclipses certainly do symbolically portray a new ending and beginning of sorts.

Of course there is no end, no death, only a changing of a scene, a reformulation of the same stuff.  We are eternal spirits, an aspect of God, it is the outer form that changes, takes on temporality.
