It could be just me, but St. Patrick's day is always so much fun, and for so many reasons. Also, no need to worry about your cultural background. Everyone's Irish on this ultra-festive holiday, which means there's always a reason to celebrate. BTW, your St. Patrick's day 2019 horoscope is here, and there's a lot to discuss. However, in the meantime, let's talk a little bit about these St. Patrick's Day shenanigans, and where it all began. I mean, who exactly is St. Patrick, and why do people insist on pinching me for not wearing green? No worries, it happens to the best of us.
In an ideal world, I would probably wear whatever I wanted (not green) and still sip on my green brew, but that's obviously not going to happen without getting pinched a thousand times. Nevertheless, I got the scoop on Patrick, and the Irish festivities we all look forward to every year. According to History.com," St. Patrick is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland." However, he was not actually Irish. (Mind blown.) In reality, Patrick was born in Roman Britain, and was kidnapped and brought to Ireland as a slave at the age of 16. You learn something new every day.
St. Patrick then escaped, but eventually made it back to Ireland, and introduced Christianity to the Irish. Patrick died on Mar. 17, but in the centuries following his death, the story of his life became part of the Irish culture. The legend says, according to History.com, "St. Patrick explained the Holy Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) using the three leaves of a native Irish clover." Interesting, huh? IDK about you, but I'll never look at three-leaf clover the same again. I know, I know, this isn't a history lesson, but I figured I'd share what I learned with y'all.
Anyway, St. Patrick's day is on Mar. 17, and the Spring Equinox, aka first day of Aries season, is on Mar 20. Spring is almost here! My favorite season! You guys, this is major. For starters, everything blooms and flourishes in the springtime, but more importantly, this means we survived yet another harsh winter. Aries season is for springing forward, aka putting our best foot forward. However, Uranus will have already entered Taurus by St. Patrick's Day, and trust me, you'll be feeling the difference, (plays Jaws music) and Venus will also be traveling through well-rounded Aquarius, which means a perfect time for socializing.
Anyhoo, here's what the stars have in store for St. Patrick's Day, as per your zodiac sign:
