Fall Equinox 2018

Fall Equinox, Sun enters Libra - change is in the AIR!
Late Saturday night brings us the Fall Equinox - a Latin word meaning equal. For a brief moment in time daylight and night are equal. This coincides with the Sun's entrance into air sign Libra. Libra is the perfect sign to represent the Equinox as it is always seeking out balance. Libra represents relationship - the dynamics between two people, the energy exchange, the dance between giving and receiving. Libra prioritizes collaboration, cooperation, dialogue, mediation, justice and fairness. This sign can see every angle and every side to an issue and will carefully weigh each before reaching a conclusion. The planet that rules Libra is Venus. Venus represents love, beauty, abundance - think the Goddess Aphrodite. Venus actually rules two signs - Libra and Taurus - but is expressed differently through each one. Venus through Libra is high end. Art galleries, fine wines, gorgeous designer clothing and refined elegance are all under Libra's domain. Libra is an air sign - meaning that it functions mostly through the mind. Air signs are cerebral, intelligent, communicative - and tend to have lots of words, thoughts, images and ideas swirling around in their minds all of the time. It's important for Libra and all of the air signs (Gemini, Aquarius) to get into their bodies - so they don't float away! The air element can get caught in the head and upper chakras. This can lead to things like vertigo, dissociation and anxiety if not balanced out with grounding activities - like yoga, massage, exercise, etc. May your transition into the Fall season be sweet as pumpkin spice! The equinox is followed quickly by a Full Moon in Aries on Monday evening - more on that in the next blog post!
