Happy Birthday, Libra! And Happy Libra Season to all. The Sun shifts from practical, detailed Virgo into the sign of harmony and balance, Libra, through October 23.
This is our “Autumnal Equinox”, and we will experience equal hours of daylight as darkness. Today is something to talk about because not only is 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, as these influences bring in the energy of balance, cooperation, and equality. It’s a good time to work on balancing your personal life and relationships.
We can feel mentally sharper and be made more aware of issues of injustice by being able to spot unfair treatment. We may have to stand up for ourselves or someone else during this time. This seems to come out more so with family and close friends. It can be easier at this time to see all sides to most situations, so we can have a hard time choosing sides while trying to figure things out. Just remember you can’t make everyone happy, as decision making can prove to be difficult. This is a good time to meet others halfway, compromise, and work on negotiations. Take into consideration other folks needs, agendas, and desires as well as your own. We might start playing the role of peacemaker, so we can be very diplomatic when it comes to dealing with problems or in business dealings. We desire peace and harmony and create that energy both aware and unconsciously.
Be careful to not seek out the approval of others too much during this cycle, as it can be difficult to know who’s telling the truth sometimes. Follow your gut instincts during Libra Season as our inner awareness is very strong. We have an extra boost of intuition now with mental Mercury also in the sign of Libra, so it’s just natural to study other folks and their behaviors and body language. Follow that little voice inside your head, it is strong under all this Libra energy, we all can be quite Psychic and will be able to see through other people quite quickly.
This transit can affect those with Leo or Libra Suns Signs or Rising signs quite strongly, but this energy affects all of us! Sun in Libra folks should feel a great big jolt of confidence and playfulness over these next four weeks, and Leo may be made more aware of how to balance themselves both emotionally and physically.
While under the Sun in Libra we will strive to keep some sort of balance and greater equilibrium for the next month. So we are working on lessons involving such things as style, charm, tact, tolerance, and our social skills. The more shadow side of Libra energy shows us how we are more indecisive, passive-aggressive, fake or superficial, and a bit narcissistic. Learn from this time, as there is going to be a whole lot of Libra energy surrounding us for the next month or so.
September time seems to have some wonderful opportunities that we just haven’t experienced in awhile, so why not read on to learn how these Cosmic Connections are going to affect you and your life for the month.
A New Moon at the end of August helped kick off September time, and with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars all in the sign of Virgo we are best off during the first week of the month to work on organizing, editing, and paying attention to the details of our health and work. This is a very fertile and productive time, and is good for freeing ourselves from situations that are restricting or limiting us from finding happiness in our daily lives, routines, work, and health. With all of the personal planets in the sign of practical Virgo, we can create some sort of harmony, and they are all harmonizing with Saturn and Pluto, but are also bumping up against Jupiter and Neptune this month. So we have many opportunities to get our lives together, but we may have to let go of our high expectations.
September 3: Sun conjuncts Mars When these two strong energizers come together, the energy alone can be productive but also can create a lot of friction, the choice is yours on just where you want to direct this amazing energy. It’s important to be strong and confident but do not allow yourself to get into little ego battles. With both planets in practical Virgo, this is a good few days to work on projects or too get involved in something near and dear to your heart that involves helping others.
September 9: Mars trines Saturn We can be much more disciplined but productive at this time, as this stong energy creates a harmonious influence. This helps make it easier to organize and harness these energies to make good use of. Mars in helpful Virgo and Saturn in more ambitious Capricorn can help us make detailed plans to reach our goals. Just make sure to take advantage of this hard-working energy so you can get things organized in your life.
September 14: Full Moon in Pisces The Full Moon on the 14th occurs in the sign of Pisces at the same time as a Mars-Neptune opposition. Pisces is considered to be the most sensitive sign of the Zodiac, and under the Full Moon energy both are known for amplifying emotions. This can be a very overwhelming time, where we just aren’t feeling as tough as usual, so be sure to be extra careful with others as they are feeling emotionally vulnerable and sensitive as well, and you may not know what other folks are feeling or going through. Make sure and get plenty of downtime to not only replenish your energy but to also calm your nerves.
This Full Moon is trying to remind us that we all need to pay extra close attention to our spiritual and emotional wellness. The way we find balance at this time is to express what we need on a spiritual level while maintaining our everyday lives. Under these energies, we can either choose to live in chaos or order, and with the Mars-Neptune opposition at play, there also can be a stronger sense of urgency as we try to restore balance, and some uncertainty, as we learn what’s real and not. As it’s a good time to Zen it out folks and maybe do some meditation, affirmations, journal-writing, listen to calming music, or exercise, whatever you do just do anything that feeds your soul and helps you connect to your spirituality, whatever that may look like.
September 14: Mercury enters Libra During this cycle is a great time to work on resolving recent conflicts, arguments, and misunderstandings as the planet of communication enters the more accommodating sign of Libra. Under this influence we just want to get along with everyone really, with all the chaos and turmoil over the summer, the world can use this energy to help us make amends as it is easier to apologize or to at least try to get along. This can be a wonderful time to be more social and get together with friends and family.
September 14: Venus enters Libra The planet Venus rules over love, beauty, money, and relationships, and is entering its home sign of Libra which rules over such things as love, and relationships. We have had more than our fair share of challenges this year, so this is a wonderful opportunity to refocus on what really matters to us the most, from the heart! This can include the people who were there for us the most. If you have had some sort of rift or conflict with someone lately, this is an ideal time to fix things. So put your differences aside and find some common ground to meet in the middle. Even if you are one who likes to be alone, this lovely energy can lead you into being more social even if it’s just a family member or friend. Since the planet Venus and the sign of Libra both are about all things beautiful, so it’s a good time to pamper yourself, and do something that makes us feel good about ourselves once again, perhaps just mani-pedi or take a whole spa day, or just take whole day off from your responsibilities if at all possible and relax! We should also be careful about putting on appearances just to keep the peace, as we might hold back on saying how we are really feeling, or from asserting ourselves, so we can be false or superficial. Take this time to tap into your creative side and do something well, creative. Perhaps spend some time in a place that is beautiful to you. This aspect runs through October 8.
September 18: Saturn goes direct Saturn that planet of rules and Lord of Karma, finally turns direct form it’s Retrograde phase. This influence is real big on reminding us about taking care of our responsibilities, and bringing our heads out of the clouds so we can deal with any plans or goals we have here on planet Earth! In the mood for a Reality Check? During this time anything we are not taking care of and what we need to be focusing on, can be up in our face to deal with. We can feel quite slowed down at this time, but that doesn’t mean you are not making progress towards reaching your goals. Just don’t rush things as Saturn adjusts itself back to its normal pace from its Retrograde Cycle. So for the rest of the month you can come across blocks, restrictions, and even some limitations, and it will seem like opportunities are not happening or that certain people are not cooperating, but this won’t last for long. Over time we will gradually be able to meet long-term goals and plans will start to become more clear. Ask yourself where you want to be at by the end of the year, and what would you like to achieve. And stay focused on your goals. Anything that Saturn is involved in is about hard work, and that will bring in the greatest rewards. So don’t try to take shortcuts now, instead pick yourself up by your bootstraps and get to work. Simply figure out what it is you want and commit your time and energy to that project or goal. Here over the next few months, you will be glad you did because rewards will start to really show up.
September 21: Jupiter Squares Neptune Jupiter gets into one last tense meeting with foggy Neptune in a set that first formed back in January. This transit pulls on us as we struggle with our expectations, faith, and drams. This is a time when we can be more easily MISLEAD, whether by others or by our own unrealistic expectations. We may have to deal with consequences from being disorganized or exaggerating certain details of our lives, or for being neglectful or extravagant when buying things.
This energy tends to cause restlessness, as our everyday routines can feel quite unsatisfying now. This is a time when we can more easily take shortcuts and detours from our everyday routines. We can be fooled, tricked, or disillusioned by someone or something, so keep a watchful eye out and be careful and don’t avoid the truth. We can also start to form some new beliefs or philosophies, and try to justify why we are avoiding certain issues. This dense energy can cause folks to wander and be more confused, from a lack of being grounded. But that also means we can come up with more open-minded ideas. We just may have bigger issues with setting and keeping boundaries up for ourselves. It’s important this week to stay in reality to the best of your ability, by setting some rules around your routines and regular schedules. This influence can give us some inspiration spiritually speaking as we let go of old false beliefs, expectations, and dreams that were going nowhere in the first place.
During this same time Jupiter also gets into a somewhat challenging aspect with wild Uranus, and this to causes more high anxiety and restlessness, especially if our dreams are not forming and don’t seem to feel fulfilling or are inspiring us. Watch yourself this week for going off on some strange tangent or trip to nowhere, as we can get into the strangest, oddest situation that are completely impractical.
September 23: Sun enters Libra The Sun shifts once again around the Zodiac and as it does every September and enters the sign of Libra. This is also the Autumnal Equinox north of the equator and the Spring Equinox in the southern hemisphere of the planet. This is a special energy that helps us to find balance in our lives as we prepare for this new season. Oddly enough the word Equinox comes from the Latin word that means Equal. Libra is the sign of balance, fairness, and equality. So use this influence and spend some quality time with family and friends. The Sun will remain in Libra through October 23.
September 28: New Moon in Libra To close out the month a New Moon occurs in the sign of Libra, this is indeed a social time that is filled with the hope and promise of New Beginnings. Luckily, also during this time lovely Venus and lucky Jupiter make a beautiful connection that can have you feeling more optimistic and cooperative. This is time for taking care of and nurturing any relationships you want to see grow and become stronger, or even just more important. This is also a good time for negotiations and partnering, and we can find ways to solve conflicts.
If you are already in a committed relationship, any time you spend together during this cycle can really strengthen the bonds you already have. Do things that make you happy or that are more pleasurable as Libra is ruled by Venus and all things that are considered to be beautiful. So take long walks, plan out a mini-vacay, go out to eat at your fav restaurant, or go see a love-themed movie. If you are interested in meeting someone new, get out there and mingle during this time folks and attend special events and accept those invites because you just might meet someone special.
It’s the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere! Happy Mabon my friends!
This is a special time when we celebrate the change of seasons. Lots of people from different backgrounds and cultures all around the world will be celebrating ancient old traditions with festivals, fairs, and parties all weekend long!
The Autumnal Equinox is the time of balance between day and night and is the time before night takes over and brings the coming Winter Season that is a time of darkness and endings. This duality between light and dark exists within humanity, and in the work of our spiritual transformation. All things must end before they can be born, all spiritual ascent requires descent first, and all those who long for light must firstly face their own inner darkness and overcome it. The Autumn Equinox symbolizes a point of inner preparation in the process of enlightenment, to make way for the new awareness to be born within at the Winter Solstice.
This shift into Autumn is a strong turning point in energy and is a great time for “Setting Intentions.” Treat this time like you would under a Full or New Moon, which will be easy since the Full Moon in Aires is already building up the energy to come together Monday evening, so it’s right on time.
This should also be a Day of Gratitude, after all, we’ve made it through a rough Summer season with very high temperatures for extended amounts of time, and an extremely strong Eclipse Season, and an extraordinary amount of planets in their Retrograde
cycles at one time! It’s been intense, to say the least! But we’re finally moving into the last stages of the Retrogrades time and amazing doors of opportunity are opening now for each of every one of us, as amazing gifts will continue to be revealed to us this Fall Season.
It’s important to Set your Intentions for the Fall, this Saturday. It’s a powerful time of the year to set goals of all kinds that can manifest during this season.
Learn how to create a little magic of your own on this special day! This is a time when doors of opportunity open to a new realm and new energy emerges. It’s a very potent, strong energy, and is a good time to focus on how you are feeling about your life and what you want to manifest next. Think about the light and darker sides of yourself, the positive and negative parts of your personality as you start to tap into your shadow self through the Fall Season, as you balance your physical existence and spiritual needs. Look at the whole picture and your world both inside and out, to assess what needs to change and heal!
Happy Birthday, Libra! And Happy Libra Season to all.
The Sun shifts from practical, detailed Virgo into the sign of harmony and balance, Libra.
This is our Autumnal Equinox, and we will experience equal hours of daylight as darkness.
Today is something to talk about because not only is the Sun moved into Libra, but so has the “great messenger” Mercury. So our core self and minds are in sync, besides the constant need to for balance these aspects turn our focus towards our relationships and brings in the energy of cooperation and equality.
You will feel sharp and aware of issues of injustices or unfair treatment of others, which may be a direct result of you taking a stand for yourself or others, especially if it’s around those you love. It’s easier to see all sides to most situations, so remember you can’t make everyone happy, because decision making can prove to be difficult. You might start playing the role of peacemaker under this influence, so you can be quite diplomatic when it comes to dealing with problems or business dealings.
We desire peace and harmony and create that energy both aware and unconsciously. Be careful to not seek out the approval of others too much during this cycle, as it can be difficult to know who’s telling the truth sometimes, follow your gut instincts during Libra Season as our inner awareness and psychic-self is at its strongest. You have an extra boost of intuition now with mental Mercury now in in the sign of Libra, as well, for most of October, so it’s just natural to study other folks and their behaviors and body language, which can tell you an awful lot about a person, go ahead and try it, you will see exactly what I am talking about.
This transit can especially affect those with Libra Suns signs or Rising signs. Libra’s should feel a great big jolt of confidence and playfulness over these next four weeks, and the rest of you may be made more aware of how to balance what is required of you both emotionally and physically to achieve balance.
While under the Sun in Libra we will strive to keep some sort of balance and greater equilibrium for the next 28 days or so. Our relationships will also become of great interest and focus from September 22nd through October 23rd.
FYI we can struggle with how to handle our relationships with Venus the planet of love in the mysterious sign of Scorpio during this time, and with planet Venus going into its Retrograde cycle soon. Relationships are under a microscope and are about to get a big dose of reality through the end of November!
Mercury shifts into the sign of the scales, Libra, today, this aspect is from September 21 – October 9.
This will have us thinking about the patterns we follow in our relationships. but our relationships will be of the utmost importance.
Our thoughts tend to lighten up a bit when Mercury is in Libra. The positive vibes of this influence help us feel more friendly and diplomatic with others, so it’s a good time to think of ways to improve your negotiation skills. However, it is equally just as important to not be false out of fear of not keeping the peace. Under this energy, we do tend to shy away from any kind of conflict unless we are starting something. It can also be difficult when we must assert ourselves, we can be easily accommodating and take others opinions as fact, there can be a fear of looking like the bad guy and we don’t like others thinking of us negatively.
Our minds are more rational during this time so we can be fair. However, this energy can have you changing your mind quite a bit, because you can see both sides to any given situation or story now. It can be a challenge just to make a quick decision, because you may end up just sitting around pondering what you have seen or heard. However, this is a good time to take into consideration other folks points of view, as we more inclined to arrive at a fair and equal judgment or conclusions.
Even though under this Libra energy, the sign of diplomacy we prefer to create harmony without too much static, do not let that prevent you from dealing with the real issues and getting down and dirty about it if you have to. Libra energy can help us observe the world around us and study other people and their behaviors, so a good mystery can be extremely intriguing during this time.
So what does Mercury in Libra mean for you and your relationships? Oh, it means a lot! Libra is the sign of relationships, it rules over our one-on-one relationships and partnerships of all kinds. We can learn more of the truth around our relationships and what really is going on. If you’ve had any problems or tension with close friends, partners, or business partnerships this phase can help you get down to what is really causing any problems. Because you can finally figure out some of these issues, and possibly fix a broken or be done, so at least you won’t be stuck anymore. This is a great time to work on fixing the patterns of co-dependency as well because it can be toxic!
Even though Libra is the sign of diplomacy and prefers to create harmony without too much static, don’t let that prevent you from dealing with the real issues and don’t be afraid to get down and dirty about it if you have to.
