Through the leaves of the calendar
The first record found of a time structuring model dates back to 2,000 years B.C., a lunisolar calendar, that is, based on the movements of the Sun and the Moon. This is a period when people were much more connected with nature and in fact used the observation of the stars for a better understanding of events on Earth.
Moving forward a little in time, around 40 years B.C. we have the record of the Roman calendar, which continued to be based on the lunisolar model, even revised and structured with the help of astronomers. At this point we have the registration of names for the months that were inspired by mythological gods, and this is where the conversation starts getting interesting!
The first month of the year was named Martius (remember the name of which month anyway?), this name was chosen in honor of the god Mars. And Mars, in turn, is none other than the planet that rules the first sign of the Zodiac: Aries – sign that represents the seed, the beginning. Very propitious energy for a New Year, don’t you think?
To understand how we got to the festive mobilization from December to January is not an easy task, since that time some updates in the calendar were identified whose adjustments were specific to meet the demands of the time. Currently we use the Gregorian calendar, structured 1500 AD, which also suffered adjustments to adapt to Christian commemorative dates.
Basically, the leaves of the calendar have already been torn out and shuffled a few times, so why cling to it, right? Even more knowing that the structural and inspirational origin was the astral beauties of our sky, we have here an opportunity to once again connect synchronously with the movements of nature, just as the ancient peoples did, and to take much better advantage of this wonderful energy of the astrological new year! So you can put the prosecco on ice now, because when you understand what this new year has in store for us, you will soon want to pop the cork and fill the glasses!
With the strength of the warrior
The date of the Astrological New Year 2023 is always the day when the Sun leaves the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces, and enters the sign of Aries, which in 2023 will be March 20.
To understand the energy of the astrological New Year is to understand the energy of the first sign of the zodiac: Aries, the one that literally pulls the queue for the others. In mythology, Aries is represented by the Greek god Ares, also known as the god of war, who represents the vibration of this sign that carries in itself the archetype of strength, leadership, and impulsiveness. But of course we want to do this in a high way, after all the idea is not that you conquer things on the strength of hate, but on the strength of courage.
On the day of the astrological new year the Sun enters Aries already squaring Mars in Gemini to start this cycle, reminding us that it is time to take things off the mental plane and start acting the way we can. The excess of thought blocks the primitive instinct of impulsive action, and this is a period of “get out there and do it“. Remembering that we will still have Jupiter in Aries that has already begun to expand this force in us since the end of December 2022, and the Sun’s entry is literally the matchstick that was missing to light it.
We will also have the Sun conjunct Mercury, bringing a good ability to argue and agile thinking, this favors defending oneself and exposing one’s opinions, brings more individualism, and it may even make communication a little more aggressive. For those who have been trying for a long time to impose themselves, sometimes things are a little unbalanced, but you will calibrate the flame of this Aryan fire little by little to use it with mastery, ok?
The energy of the astrological new year brings an excellent period for:
- starting personal projects or a new business
- take actions and decisions that you have been wanting for a long time
- prioritize your wishes more
- practice physical activities with more intensity
- expressing more what you want and believe in
- putting a new habit into practice
- performing any action or activity that requires courage
Until April 20 it will be possible to take advantage of this powerful source, when the Sun leaves the sign of Aries. From then on we will still have the strength of Jupiter in Aries until May 15, so we can still enjoy this flame of fire. Take the opportunity to embody the leadership of yourself, access your inner warrior for your personal battles, and remember that the only competition that exists is you with yourself.

Personal affirmation phrases carry a lot of power, so you can carry these words with you, leave them on your desk in your office, read them in the morning, or speak them out loud whenever you need to connect with this energy – which I’m sure will help you throughout the year!
