Autumn Equinox / New Moon in Libra – Sept ’14
We open in the final days of the Sun in Virgo as we head into a week full of major shifts. The Autumnal Equinox occurs on Monday evening when the Sun enters the sign of Libra. It’s a time of seeking balance, and the call is to examine where you place your focus and attention in life in order to create a more wholistic experience. Equalizing and rebalancing the yin and yang… that’s the idea.
However, a few hours before the Equinox, Pluto (transformation and power) turns Direct in the heavens to retrace the path it traveled since April 14th when it went Retrograde. Pluto’s agenda is to go deep and mine all the unconscious material that needs to be experienced and integrated – and it is not for the faint of heart!
Pluto’s been crawling along for weeks preparing to stop and turn, so if you’ve experienced any upheaval, major endings or new beginnings, you can likely chalk it up to Pluto, which is connecting to something significant in your astrological chart. Letting go and endings are always big features of a Pluto transit.
Whatever comes up – don’t resist or avoid dealing with it if you want move through it. This is a time to be proactive and seek support for any major changes that feel like more than you can handle. It will be worth the effort once you are on the other side.
At the same time, do avoid power struggles and any kind of covert activity or situations that feel out of integrity. Being out of integrity never creates success, but now you can really go wrong if you try to rationalize behavior/decisions that are unaligned with your Higher truth. Don’t do it!
Use the Pluto call for letting go and rebirth in service to rebalancing your life, even if the balance may take some time to implement and you don’t know what it will look like. Stay in a high vibration and always focus on your desired outcome!
New Moon in Libra – Sept 23/24, ’14
11:14pm PDT ~ 2:14am EDT
The New Moon in Libra occurs just after the Equinox and the Pluto Station. The New Moon is the time for new beginnings – the natural time to take actions and seed anything that you want to create or increase in your life.
Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of love, beauty, and harmony and the focus is on relationships, beauty, aesthetic surroundings, balance, giving and receiving, creativity, and love, love, love! FYI: in my humble opinion, beauty is not optional for those who resonate with it (whatever that means for you), so don’t deprive yourself of what lights you up!
This is a powerful New Moon to focus on all your relationships to see that they are in balance, especially regarding issues around power. How do you give your power away? Seeking approval, people-pleasing, second-guessing yourself and your inner guidance, caretaking others, or trusting others over yourself? Check in with yourself to see how you embody your power in relationships. And remember, when I say power I’m not talking about dominance; I’m referring to autonomy and being your own authority.
One last BIG thing: Jupiter (expansion/abundance) trines Uranus (change/innovation) all week, which will bring opportunities to expand your life in ways you can’t imagine! Uranus is the unexpected, so be on the lookout for openings that will align your life with your Authentic Self in the most beautiful ways.
This is magical energy – fun, spontaneous, abundant! Don’t get stuck in your head weighing the pros and cons (fear disguised as logic). Take a chance and try something new! I’m excited – I can feel things happening for me already and I wish the same for you :))
Countdown: you have 2 weeks before Mercury goes Retrograde on Oct 4th. If you need to order your iPhone 6 or make any other large purchases – especially technology – do it now. Or soon :))
Have a great week and Happy Equinox!
