The Sun moved into the sign of Aries on Thursday March 19, 2020. Coincidentally, Thursday March 19th is also the day that we honored and celebrated the Spring Equinox, also known as Ostara! Aries is a fire sign ruled by the planet Mars and is the first sign in the wheel of the zodiac. As the first sign in the zodiacal calendar, Aries is the sign of fresh beginnings and can represent the start of a new year for you! Aries are generally understood to be the babies of the zodiac and often thought of as impulsive, active, energetic, excitable but very open to change and exciting new experiences.
Our resident Aries at Kate’s Magik is Scott, our shipping master, whose birthday is April 19th! Scott lovingly packages and sends all of your Kate's Magik orders that you place online through our website and over the phone.
Kate was going to travel to Switzerland to be with her Aries mom, Anita, for her big birthday on April 10th this year and is very sad to not be able to go and be with her mom during this time.
Happy Birthday and Happy Aries Season to these two hot, Aries balls of fire!
With signs of Spring just around the corner and the onset of Aries season, this is an optimal time to set some intentions for the coming months and to begin anew.
