The Sun in Libra & the Autumn Equinox
On Saturday, September 22nd, 2019 at 9:54 PM EST, with the Sun in Libra, the Autumn Equinox will begin. In astrology, this is indicative of the positions that we create for ourselves to harvest the fruits of seeds planted months ago, during the Spring Equinox. This is the start of fall, when the nights grow longer, and sets up up for personal reflection, balance, and tranquility that stems from the understanding of our initiatives that have been able to reach their fullest fruition. When these initiatives haven’t been met in the ways that we need, taking a step back to understand that which we must do to satiate this position is able to help with how we are able to find ourselves creating a stronger course of action throughout the end of the year. For some, the shortened days of fall are able to yield a better initiative for carrying out goals and resetting the board for ourselves to find the greater achievements that we aspire for in life.
The Sun’s trajectory through Libra is a magnetic time in the Zodiac, as it creates a stance of balance and an understanding for polarity in energy between people, concepts, ideas, thoughts, suggestions, etc. In the Tarot, the Justice card is the position of Libra, not only because of its balance, but because of the necessary position in the hierarchies of mankind that have been present since the beginning of human existence. As many of you know, the tarot is a pictorial representation of these hierarchies, and show the positions of life that are able to have the greater influence over our lives. Where recent past influences over Libra have served to decimate this position in the hierarchy, this Libra season will be working diligently to rectify these positions, due to Venus’ Retrograde in Scorpio, Mars in Aquarius, and Jupiter in Scorpio (which I have often referred to as Scorpio’s revenge). This will be a great push for the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements, before they decide to make a complete jump into the consciousness of society, with repercussions from these positions that will be felt for years to come.
Libra tends to be a positive time for air and fire signs, especially for Aries, Leo, Libra, and Gemini. For Sagittarian and Aquarian individuals, this can pull toward a longing for wanting instant gratification, especially with Sagittarius’ position for searching for truth and Aquarius’ position for noticing unfairness, both in terms of what is noticed in the scope of what justice is. With some of the more major shifts that are occurring in what justice is, complications can be felt. Understanding that society does bend toward justice is able to provide some semblance of hope, in terms of how this is able to be overcame. Individuals with Taurus as their Sun Sign can feel a lack of groundedness as the leaves fall, if there aren’t proper measures in place for creating a more grounded position. Capricorn and Virgo tend to do well in the fall and winter months, though, especially when they are both able to do the things they most enjoy.
