The equinoctial points are the places on the ecliptic (the Sun’s path) which in relation to the earth make night and day of equal length. This means that the Sun is in the plane of the Earth’s equator. Astrologically, these are very important times, where a tremendous shift of energy takes place.
The Vernal Equinox is specifically of great importance because it marks - 0 degrees Aries which is the beginning of the Tropical Zodiac. It is also analogous to the rising point in the daily cycle when the Sun crosses the horizon and marks the beginning of the day. After six months, during which the night is longer than the day, when the Sun crosses the vernal point, the day triumphs over the night. The solar power is starting to gain momentum as light and warmth propel life and growth in the northern hemisphere.
It is a sacred time of festivals, celebrations and religious ceremonies all over the globe, and all throughout history, every religion marks this time in its holidays, in one form or another.
The 0 Aries point is very potent with life energy, it is the birth point of the year, reflected by an energetic tidal wave of solar "fire" rekindling our own inner power and motivation to act. It is not surprising that the Sun is said to be exalted in this sign.
As the ancient Greek Astrologer Vettius Valens (2nd century A.D) said in his "Anthology" :
"The Sun is the cosmic mind and divinity. It arouses human’s soul to action through its own energy and love-inspiring nature, and it becomes the cause of achievement and progress.
The talisman itself is based on an ancient Assyrian relief of the Winged Sun or the Sun Disc which is an ancient symbol of power, life, light, godhood, and sovereignty.
