As I post this we're about a day away from the Equinox, when the Sun will cross from the sign of Pisces (Tropical horoscope system) to Aries. This will happen Saturday at about 9:30 pm California time (12:30 am Sunday on the US East Coast, 4:30 am Sunday UTC ("Greenwich")).

The Sun also crosses the Equator from South to North at this time.

As usual, Wikipedia has something to say:

The figure at

shows the Sun's position on its journey through the signs of the Zodiac. It's updated hourly (but not on the hour). You can look at it year-round even if I only post about it at Equinoxes and Solstices.
