On September 22nd, the Sun, which rules our: ego, life force and vitality, shifts from the earthy sign of Virgo, over to the airy sign of Libra. Libra, the 7th sign of the zodiac, is all about: peace,commitments, balance and justice. This also happens to be the Autumn( northern hemisphere)/ Spring( southern hemisphere) Equinox. Equinoxes are powerful days that usher in magic and forward movement. In many ancient cultures, the Equinox is considered a holy day of manifestation and change. Happy Equinox to my Northern + Southern hemisphere friends!
The Autumn/Spring Equinox + Sun in Libra is here to shift your perspective and allow you to relocate your sense of balance and peace. The Autumn/Spring Equinox in fact is where there is an equal number of hours of day and night. In a world that is currently anything but balanced, we are being asked to dig deep to find our sense of center. Libra rules the 7th house of relationships and is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, beauty and pleasure. To me as an astrologer, Libra is unique in the fact that this sign can see both points of view without discrimination. The Libra Sun is asking us to see both sides of our: darkness + light, peace + chaos and joy + sorrow. There is power when you can hold space for both sides. When you can honor this within yourself, then you can honor it within another. The change of season over to the Cardinal modality of: action and forward movement, is a chance to begin again. In a time of unprecedented changes both internally and externally, this coming season is asking for your gentle understanding vs. the need to be righteous and just.
The Autumn/Spring Equinox + Sun in Libra wants you to find your center + ability to understand vs. being understood. If we all could love ourselves enough to hold space for our dualistic natures, just imagine what would be possible in this crazy world! There is no wrong or right way to do this. It is through: grace, trial + error, and patience that we rise again, ready to make room for a new season.
The gift of the Equinox and Sun in Libra is the ability to love yourself and another, whether your viewpoints align or not. We share more together as a species than what is supposed to tear + divide us apart. It is time to drop down to your heart and reclaim your sense of commitment to yourself and others. It is time to create a win/win situation, instead of a win/lose scenario. The Sun in Libra + Autumn/Spring Equinox is here to: shed what no longer serves us, in order to find peace, create empowering relationships with the self + others, and remind us that the power of love will always be stronger than the love of power. Happy birthday to all the lovely Libra folks!
