What Are The Differences Between Aries And Leo? Although sometimes the differences between the two signs may be noticeable, Aries…
According to the tropical system of astrology, the Sun enters the sign of Aries when it reaches the March equinox, which time systems and the western calendar are rooted in, so as to occur on average on March 21. Because the Earth takes approximately 365.25 days to go around the Sun, the precise time of the equinox is not the same each year, and generally will occur about six hours later from one year to the next.
February 29 of a leap year causes that year’s vernal equinox to fall about eighteen hours earlier compared with the previous year. Since 1900 the vernal equinox date has ranged from March 20 at 08h (2000) GMT to March 21 at 19h (1903) GMT.March 19 at 23:20 will occur in 2044 UT1. In contrast, under the sidereal zodiac, the sun currently transits Aries from April 15 to 14 May (approximately).
Aries is the first fire sign in the zodiac, the other fire signs being Leo and Sagittarius. Individuals born between these dates, depending on which system of astrology they subscribe to, may be called Arians or Ariens.
