At the time of the Autumnal Equinox, The Sun is at 0 degrees of Libra. The Equinox is a time of balance—balance of dark and light, night and day. This year, Mercury, Venus, and Mars are all conjunct in Virgo, making an opposition to dreamy Neptune AND a beautiful trine to underworldly powerhouse Pluto. These aspects beg the question: what work is needed now to manifest your dreams?
When the equinox exacted on the 22nd, the moon had just entered dynamic, powerful, and determined Scorpio, and conjuncted Jupiter, less than a month from entering Scorpio himself. This Fall begins a time of benefiting from merging with an other, whether through intimacy or business merging, as new relationships we have begun in Libra begin to deepen. Scorpio is the place in the zodiac where the self dies and the transpersonal self is born through merging with something bigger than or beyond one’s self. Adding to this intensity and forward motion is Pluto himself, ruler of Scorpio, stationing direct on 9/28!
Just before Jupiter moves into Scorpio, it has its final opposition to Uranus (the planet of awakening and radical change) on 9/28. Themes of waking up and rapidly evolving through relationship visited in December of 2016 and again in March of this year are showing up again, and we have the opportunity to close deals and really graduate from the electrifying intensity of 2017 so that we enter the merging energy of Jupiter in Scorpio knowing much more than we did before.
We still have a grand trine with the North Node in Leo, Uranus in Aries, and Saturn and Lilth is Sagittarius. This Fall is a time of taking action on our creative projects and getting in the game, taking the vision we have cultivated through the summer and working with this Virgo energy to MAKE IT HAPPEN. All the gory details need to get worked out and, like a farmer tilling the field, we will need to get our hands dirty.
Blessed Equinox to all!
