Aries Theory: What is it exactly?

While it is not a widely recognized astrological term, April Theory has been gaining some momentum, especially in astrology TikTok. Some believe that April is the actual start of the new year, instead of January. 

In many cultures and traditions, April does not mark the start of the new year. Instead, the beginning of the new year varies depending on the calendar system used.

For example:
  • In the Gregorian calendar, which is the most widely used calendar system internationally, the new year starts on January 1st.
  • In the Chinese calendar, the new year typically begins in late January or early February, depending on the lunar calendar.
  • In the Islamic calendar, the new year begins with the month of Muharram, which varies each year based on lunar sightings and typically falls between September and October in the Gregorian calendar.
  • In the Hindu calendar, the new year begins on different dates depending on the regional calendar system followed, such as the Vikram Samvat or the Shalivahana Shaka.
So, what's the deal with April in the astrological calendar, you ask? April holds significance in astrology and marks the transition to Aries season.

April is a significant month in the astrological calendar, marked by several key events and transitions.
  • Aries Season: April kicks off with the Sun moving through the sign of Aries, marking the beginning of Aries season. Aries is known for its fiery and assertive energy, symbolizing new beginnings, initiative, and leadership.
  • Taurus Season: Towards the end of April, the Sun transitions into the sign of Taurus, signaling the start of Taurus season. Taurus is associated with stability, practicality, and sensual pleasures, inviting us to ground ourselves and focus on material security and comfort.
  • Full Moon: Ah, the Full Moon - that magical moment when the sky lights up with lunar brilliance. April usually graces us with a Full Moon, shining a spotlight on the themes and emotions swirling around us. It's like the universe hitting the pause button, giving us a chance to reflect, release, and recharge.
  • Mercury's Movement: And let's not forget about Mercury, the cosmic messenger zipping around the sky. During April, Mercury often pulls some fancy moves, like going retrograde or direct. These celestial shenanigans can shake things up in the realms of communication, travel, and technology, keeping us on our toes and prompting a few revisions to our plans.
So, while the "April theory" might not be making waves in astrological circles, April still manages to bring its own brand of cosmic magic to the table. It's like being the quirky sidekick in a buddy comedy - maybe not the star, but definitely worth the watch.

And as for the new year? Well, April might not be the starting line for everyone, but hey, who needs a calendar to tell us when to start fresh? With the stars as our guide, every day is a chance to embrace new beginnings, chart our own course, and dance to the rhythm of the cosmos. Cheers to that!
