As I post this we're less than a day away from the Equinox, when the Sun will cross from the sign of Pisces (Tropical horoscope system) to Aries. This will happen Tuesday, March 20, at about 9:15 am California time (12:15 pm on the US East Coast, 4:15 pm UTC ("Greenwich")) and on into the evening through Europe and Asia. Some places near the Date Line will see it in the predawn hours of Wednesday morning.

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.
