Talk Cosmos

Spring Equinox & Aries Venus Star Point Ignition Key

Talk Cosmos celebrates the start of its 4th season with a fascinating show including an independently grouped panel to deliberate our story’s potential restart energy through two celestial timing cycles: The annual Vernal or Spring Equinox on March 20 and the 2nd to last Aries Venus Star Point on March 26!

So what is the Vernal/Spring Equinox? It signifies the approximate even balance point between daytime’s sunlight hours and nighttime’s star-light hours. Two equinox points occur between the winter and summer solstice points when the sun’s light is either the least or most in comparison to night. These 4 celestial timing cycles create the global calendar of seasons.

Venus represents attraction to what we love and our values, and systematically conjuncts exactly to the Sun’s orbit in beautiful patterns. March 26 the Aries Venus Star Point connects at 5°20? Aries and will be the 2nd to the last of its 98 year cycle. Aries ignites new starts for becoming an identity. We will consider what story might it mean for personal and collective social growth because the Aries Venus Star Point also connects energetically to the USA natal chart.

Talk Cosmos highlights questions and possibilities. Three astrologers return to objectify potential directions that promote further understanding these energies reflected in our lives.
