CHICAGO - April 2, 2014 - PRLog -- “In astrology, the new year begins on the spring equinox, and this year that happened on March 20,” explained Nordhaus-Bike. “That’s when the Sun enters brash, energetic Aries, and that’s why so many people feel the urge to clean up their houses, yards, garages, and lives around this time. But the equinox also starts a new spiritual year, making this a great time to do some spring cleaning for your soul.”
