The Sun enters Libra on September 22nd, and we see another Fall Equinox.
During this brief, balanced moment when the hours of daylight and darkness are equal, we look ahead to the cold winter months and take stock of what we’re harvesting and what will sustain us.
There is a time of reaping what you’ve sown, and the Sun’s square to Saturn (and Vesta) in Capricorn will clearly define what you have to work with. You may have less than usual or you may find that this second half of the year is quite unbalanced due to responsibilities. It may feel unfair, or you may dig in because you’re up to the task. Either way, it’s Saturn and he plays a key role in this Equinox (the square will be active as the Sun enters Libra, which means this energy will define the entire season).
What can you do with Saturn? You can’t argue with him and you can’t avoid what must be done. I mean, you can try (it’s your choice) but this will only increase the pressure. What you can do is step up and do the work. It’s harvest time baby, and for this year you may have to lift a heavier load or tighten your belt.
And of course, the Sun opposes Chiron Rx before the square to Saturn, so you’ll also be looking at one area where you feel vulnerable or uncomfortable. But it’s an opposition and Libra does involve a lot of projection, so the issue may not even be about you. But rest assured that Chiron’s wounds will also factor into this Equinox.
My post on the September 24th Full Moon in Aries really sums up the energies for this Libra season.
So. Probably not what you wanted to read, but it’s better to be prepared. Is there anything good for this Libra season? Something to take the edge off? Yes! There is a lovely conjunction with Ceres (see the aspect list below) which can hi-light a truly selfless day of nurturing and balanced give and take. You give, they give in return. The cycle feeds on itself and you have a blooming moment of unconditional care and affection that is mutual.
