International Astrology Day
International Astrology Day is observed next on Monday, March 20th, 2023 (170 days from today).
The Vernal Equinox is recognized as the International Astrological Day, the first day of spring because it marks the first day of the astrological year.
History of International Astrology Day
Vedic astrology is based on the position of the Moon in the house, while Western astrology is all about the sun sign considering only the individual's date of birth, based on the position of the Sun on the date of birth. Both Vedic and Western Astrology look at zodiac constellations for predictions.
International Astrology Day is celebrated on March 20 or March 21 every year. It is a great holiday celebrated by astrologers and astrology enthusiasts. It is considered by astrologers to be the beginning of the astrological year. International Astrology Day seems the first full day of the astrological sign of Aries and as the result, it is considered as the beginning of the Tropical Zodiac.
The spring equinox plays an important role for many counties and countries, as it marks the beginning of spring and the new year (for the Persians). It is day, when day and night are equal. This has to do with the phenomena, when the sun's rays fall vertically above the equator and the Sun moves from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere.
The International Astrological Day is observed based on the exact date on which the North equinox actually occurs. This changes every year between March 19 and 22, although it usually falls on March 20 or March 21.
The holiday occurs at the same time as the Iranian New Year (Norouz), which is celebrated in many places throughout the Middle East and Central Asia. It also corresponds to the beginning of the Bahá'í calendar, celebrated as Bahá'í Naw-Rúz. Other holidays that take place around this time include Ostara (among rookies), Chunfen in China, and Vernal Equinox Day (a holiday in Japan), among others.
International Astrology Day was established by the Association of Astrology Networks (AFAN) in 1993, an outgrowth of the "Astrology Awareness Weekends" that AFAN had sponsored a few years earlier. . The goal of the new holiday is to broaden opportunities for networking among the astrology community, direct media attention to the positive aspects of astrology, and help raise funds for local astrology groups and for AFAN's networking, communication and legal projects.
