At least 14 people have died after contracting the virus in the state so far this year.
Almost 700 cases have been reported across the country - the highest number since 2004.
Texas residents have been urged to use insect repellent and avoid going out at dusk and dawn.
"The city of Dallas is experiencing a widespread outbreak of mosquito-borne West Nile Virus that has caused and appears likely to continue to cause widespread and severe illness and loss of life," Michael Rawlings said.
The move clears the way for aerial spraying to kill infected mosquitoes that transmit the disease."
The 2012 Aries ingress (Vernal Equinox) sets the tone for the entire year, and the mutable grand cross between the Moon-Neptune-Chiron in Pisces, the Nodes and Mars is angular (powerful) at Dallas. Both the stagnant water in which insects breed and the deadly virus they carry are signified by these planets in Pisces- while the -180- from Mars shows harmful attacks. The Aug. 31 Pisces Full Moon triggering the Aries ingress suggests a climatic period regarding the West Nile outbreak in Texas- if it hasn't been sorted out by then.
