The Seasons are changing once again and on September 23, 2019, the Sun moves into the sign of Libra, which marks the official beginning of the Autumn Equinox! This will be the turning point of the year, as we shift into a totally different energy, but there’s nothing to fear because it’s been rough folks. This shift into the Fall Season can actually help ease tensions and bring some calm into the mix.
Not only has the Sun moved into charming Libra, but so has the “great messenger” Mercury and the Goddess of Love, Venus. So our core-self, minds, and hearts are in sync, besides the constant need for balance these aspects turn our focus towards our relationships, so these influences bring in the energy of balance, cooperation, and equality.
Libra’s energy is all about finding balance, so we can learn how to live in harmony with others, especially in our relationships (of all kinds). Our partnerships and relationships will become very important during this time. This sign teaches us to look at life from a more compassionate but also accommodating perspective. It’s a good time to get out there and date if you are looking for love, as this is a time when the energies tend to create peace and harmony in the world. Generally speaking, this sign helps us to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be.
The Equinox gives us an opportunity to experience something new or different. This big shift in energy will be more focused on allowing our goals to meet their full potential. This has already been a difficult time for Mother Nature, she is still in a huge cleansing process that was initiated by the Eclipses over the summer. You are invited to work on balancing yourself and finding some sort of stability as well. However, as we work on getting our equilibrium back we will have to take on some lessons at first, so we have to accept this is the process we must follow, as the Universe puts us through tests and challenges. However, these lessons often help us to grow, mature, and evolve.
The energies have already been slowing down with Saturn going Direct and out of Retrograde just a week ago, so as we go through this major shift we can start to finally arrive, this means we will get those moments of peace where we can catch our breath and just take a long break! It’s time to move forward with your future goals and plans, you might just find others who will want to help or support you while reaching your goals.
The human race has been going through a lot and we can start to finally recover if only for a short time. The things or projects we put off and didn’t take care of will start to show up to be dealt with and finished over the Last Quarter of 2019. As new paths are opened and revealed, our reality will change and the Equinox’s energies can really help smooth things over as we adjust to these changes.
It is very important to embrace all that is happening now, and not hide from challenges, so trust yourself and your inner voice to guide you. Listen to your higher-self and your intuition. Many of you are already feeling drained and just off, but once we get on the paths we are supposed to be on things will start to calm down. Our creativity will be super strong and potent during this energy shift, so take some time to reflect on what you have been doing this year, so you can create what you want to happen next during the last part of 2019. Don’t look back, the past is behind you, focus on creating a bright and amazing future instead!
Just a reminder for next month, on Halloween Mercury turns Retrograde for three weeks, this is a time to turn inward and do some sort of inner healing work, especially on how we hold and use our own personal power in the world. This will be a time when our thoughts can easily turn towards past lovers and ex-spouses or even just attractions we once had. Our feelings may be surprising, but for some folks especially woman you can become obsessed and get stuck on a past ex-lover, boyfriend, or attraction! So this can be an emotionally draining and demanding time. However, it is a great time to work at releasing those unhealthy attachments you have to the past and reclaim your power, and finally let those folks go on a deeper soul level!
This energy rolling in now will start to calm things down a bit, and should help us with the more difficult issues we’ve been having, so we basically are going into a time of recovery! Just give the Cosmos a little time to come together and allow these new energies to flow just where they need to. Try to stay as positive as you can and focus on what is to come, because it truly makes a difference even if things don’t appear that way at first. Patience is key to your success now.
Have a Happy Autumn Equinox and Mabon,
