Fall Equinox: Moving forward, ready or not

September 22, 2021 Fall Equinox Chart

The Sun moves into Libra on September 22, 2021 at 2:22pm CST, heralding the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere. Regardless of where you are on the Earth today, there is an equal amount of day and night. Let that really permeate your beingness, for Libra is about balance. 

The first thing I noticed when I looked at the chart for the Equinox was the Grand Air Trine consisting of the Sun and Mars conjunct in Libra trine the North Node conjunct Lillith and Ceres in Gemini and Saturn in Aquarius. The Universe is asking us to move forward, ready or not, but with an openness and curiosity, a Beginner’s Mind, actions that take into account the viewpoints, the perspectives, the feelings of others. It does not mean we take actions that are out of alignment with who we are, it is simply that we observe and acknowledge differences with grace and a desire for harmony and peace. It has always been my experience that all people just want to be seen and heard, acknowledged and loved, just as they are. When you can do that for others, you will find that maintaining peace and harmony in life is the most natural thing that follows.

The South Node in Sagittarius is sextile the Sun and Mars conjunct in Libra. This is further fuel for the Grand Air Trine. We can move forward with true connection and relationship when we are able to let go of beliefs that are keeping us stuck in viewpoints and stories that based in fear and separation. The truth is that we are all connected, life is relationship, and when you live from that Truth, you find that you live in a more inspired and sacred way. 

Chiron in Aries opposite Mars in Libra. When you are being authentic to who you are, you will naturally take actions that are in consideration of others. Chiron in Aries is the wound of not being authentic to yourself, but when you heal that wound, you then have the compassion to give others the benefit of the doubt that they are doing their best, no matter where they are at. The actions that consider the highest good for yourself and for all concerned is the highest expression of this energy. 

Mercury in Libra is in a Cardinal t-square with Eris conjunct the Moon in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury is not going much further until it turns retrograde on September 27. Pluto is also at a near standstill as it is getting ready to turn direct on October 7. Our emotions (Moon) may seem to be at odds with our minds (Mercury), but allow Pluto and Eris to compost that which needs to go and allow yourself to be transformed into the butterfly, with your mind and emotions in alignment so that you may birth the new into your life from a place of integration. Mercury in Libra is also in a trine with Jupiter in Aquarius. You can move forward with optimism, faith, and wisdom. 

Venus in Scorpio is moving into a trine with Neptune in Pisces and an opposition with Uranus in Taurus. Your values are being transformed at the deepest level as Venus moves through the emotional waters of Scorpio. Let your emotions flow, trusting in the wisdom of your heart. Uranus is also bringing about a revolution in our values, our health, our resources. It is important that our values are truly in alignment with our heart’s wisdom, and if they are, we will feel good, if they are not, we will feel off kilter. Our emotions are a compass that points us in the direction of our highest good, and if we learn how to listen to their wisdom, we can move forward towards that which we most love, cherish, and value with grace. 

I can only understand the dark
By considering the light
I can only appreciate the day
When I acknowledge the night
Shadows are only created 
When there is light
The Sun is reflected 
In the moonlight 
Balance is achieved 
When I can see all sides
When I achieve harmony 
And equilibrium on the inside
