When the Sun enters Aries it marks a kind of rebirth in the zodiac wheel. We are in the season of renewal as the Sun illuminates Aries which is symbolized by the leaping ram who rushes forth into life, bounding and exploring with a surefooted innocence. We begin again. Spring in its merciful tenderness brings an increase of light and the promise of blossoms. I’ve collected some instrumental pieces evocative of this moment—the cello expresses the transition between winter and spring with such longing and joy.
