Aries – Mesha is the first or head sign of the Zodiac. It commences at the vernal equinox and extends upto exactly 30 degrees. (Suo’ during its course from South to North crosses the celestial equator and enters into the Northern Hemisphere. This intersecting point is called the vernal equinox.) According to the Nirayana system, the vernal equinox or the beginning of Mesba (i.e. first point of the Zodiac) is considered to be ever constant and is said to coincide with the fixed star Aswini, zero degree; and the stars Aswini, Bharani and the first quarter of Karthikai always occupy Mesha or Aries. In the Sayana system, however, the retrograde motion of the Zodiac (at the rate of approximately 50 seconds per year) is taken into consideration and so nowadays Sayana Aries commences at around the 7th degree of the Pisces-Meena. The sun crosses this first point of Sayana Aries (Nirayana Pisces, Meena 7 degrees) which bus gone by retrograde motion by ncarly 23 degrees, on 21st March every year. After 71 years, the sun will cross this point on the 20th March; in 142 years on the 19th March; in 213 years on the 18th March and so on. At that time when according to both S Sayana and Nirayana systems, the initial point of commencement of the Zodiac coincided, the sun reached the vernal equinox on 14th April. After about 21,000 years also, the sun will reach the vernal equinox on 14th April. As Hindus follow the Nirayana System and I personally advocate the stellar theory, all the delineations given below refer only to the Nirayana System. Hence for people porn either in Aries as Ascendant or Moon or Sun in Aries in Aswini or Bharani or Karthikai first pada, the following characterstics will be applicable : 1.e., (a) Aries Ascendant (lagna), or (b) people born in Aswini Nakshatra or in Bharani Nakshatra or in Kar- thikai Nakshtra first (c) people born between 4th April and 13th May any year..
