International Astrology Day

Chart for 2024

Chart Details

This chart is set for the moment that the Sun enters Aries in 2024. 8:10pm, March 19th, 2024, in Vancouver. I’m using the Zero Aries house system so the chart is relevant for everywhere around the world.

Solar Cycle

Zero Aries

This day is a part of the solar cycle which is the path of the Sun every year. It is marked as the Sun crosses the celestial equator heading north which is when it enters Aries.

Equinox: Ostara

It is the equinox as well. In the Wheel of the Year this day is the festival of Ostara.



Chart Shape

Bowl Chart Shape

This chart is a loose bowl shape where all the planets are on one side of the chart. Frequently, the leading and trailing planets are in opposition. That the Moon is slightly out of the exact 180° shows that this is not technical a bowl, but for me it’s close enough.


Leading/Cutting Planet

The leading or cutting planet is Pluto in Aquarius. Pluto will rise ahead of all the other planets on this day and they will trail behind it as they rise over the horizon.


Trailing Planet

The trailing planet is the Moon in Leo.


Rim Opposition

The Moon is in opposition aspect to Pluto. This creates what is called a rim opposition. The idea is that they for the rim of the bowl.




Sun Conjoined Neptune

The Sun is conjoined Neptune which is in dignity in Pisces. Here Neptune is at the tail end of Pisces but still strong in rulership. This is a disassociate aspects as the Sun is in the active fire sign of Aries and Neptune is in the passive water sign of Pisces.


Venus Conjoined Saturn

Venus is conjoined Saturn in Pisces. Venus is also parallel Saturn so that makes is a powerful “double whammy” conjunction and one not to be ignored.

Jupiter Conjoined Uranus

Jupiter is conjoined Uranus in Taurus. Jupiter is applying to Uranus and this means that the aspects is not yet exact but it is going to be exact later in the year as Jupiter moves towards Uranus.


Sun Complex

Ingress Chart

In an ingress chart, like this one, the Sun is the main player and its complex of sign, house, position, rulership and aspects is crucial to understanding the chart. An ingress chart is a chart set for the exact moment a planet enters a new sign or house. Typically, you look at solar ingresses for global interpretations. However, all planetary ingresses can be valuable to determine the energy shifts and expression of the period.

Sun Sign

The Sun is in Aries.

Sun Rules

The Sun disposes the Moon in Leo.

Sun Aspects

Neutral Aspects

The Sun is conjoined Neptune which is in dignity in Pisces.

Soft Aspects

The Sun is trine the Moon in Leo in the First Quarter phase. The Sun is sextile Pluto in Aquarius.

Major Aspect Pattern: Stellium

Stellium Planets

A stellium forms when three or more planets are within 8° of each other. The three planets in this chart’s stellium are Mercury, Chiron and Eris all in Aries. As the ruler of Aries the planet Mars disposes this stellium.

Major Aspect Pattern: Quintile Pointer

Quintile Pointer

There is a major aspect pattern of a fat quintile pointer with the three planets Moon, Venus and Uranus.

Quintile pointers only contain aspects of the fifth harmonic (when you divide the chart by 5). There are two aspects which are the quintile at 72° and the biquintile at 144°. Quintile pointers can be fat or thin it depends. The energy from the base planets (in this case the Moon and Venus) will flow towards the point or the focal planet Uranus and will be expressed out into the world at 20° Taurus. If you have planets or points at this position it will affect you more.

Focal Planet

Uranus in Taurus is the focal planet. Note that Uranus is disposed by Venus the ruler of Taurus. I would also consider that Venus is conjoined Saturn, and that Uranus is conjoined Jupiter when interpreting this quintile pointer.
