0 point Aries is the point of the spring equinox; its movement through the precession of the equinoxes is the ‘great year’ of some 26,000 years of orbit around the Sun. This point is related to the collective and civilizational movements. Mars/Ares – the planet of Agni and fire gives the passion necessary to accomplish things and to burn off karmas; of course, conflict is intrinsic as in medical astrology, it is related to the sympathetic nervous system fight mode. Venus/Aphrodite is that of love… these apparitions are those suggesting a timeless love that transcends an individual lifetime, giving the focus to the Aries 0 point, which sits at the transition between water and fire. Viva la conflict resolution!
