9/17 :: Venus (love, finances & relationships) ~square~ Jupiter (expansion & consciousness):
(3 of 3: 6/11 :: 8/22 :: 9/17)
This energy is a happy-go-lucky kind of energy that doesn’t really want to be bothered with the mundane, however, you must not allow that passing energy to get you so off track that it costs you more than it is worth down the road. If you don’t have any pressing obligations, then this will be a fun, relaxing time, possibly with friends or socializing. However, if you have work to do, make sure that it gets done first so you can truly enjoy yourself without the worry of the pile being bigger when you return. Watch the excesses as well, food, drink and/or spending. On a deeper level, you may have to make some adjustments in your relationships or finances. Jupiter always reveals how we make things ‘bigger’ (consciously or not) and this activation usually helps us be more realistic, so that we can align our true priorities with our grand vision of the future.
9/19 :: Sun (ego & essential Self) ~oppose~ Neptune (illusion & delusion):
Where Venus oppose Neptune is about your relationships & finances, this Sun activation is more about YOU, the individual. And any opposition requires that we find the balance in the middle. This can be a very confusing energy. You may be very sensitive to others and their needs, as well as how they relate to you & your own needs. You may want to withdraw or not voice your opinion just to avoid conflict, feeling like it wouldn’t solve anything anyway. However, very often, if/when you do not ‘disagree’ (openly) then people assume you agree, which creates more problems. You shouldn’t give in to any temptation of being “slick” either, that will only attract more of the same to you. If you’re feeling unsure of yourself or your position, you may think it is easier to give in to another person’s demands when you really should stand up for yourself. Self-preservation is not selfish, it is necessary, it is essential, so try to avoid playing the victim. Be honest and up-front with anyone demanding a confrontation at this time, that you would rather gather your thoughts and discuss things later (by then this energy will have passed) and then you can articulate your side of things better. Be aware of deception – both on your part and/or the part of others (trying to deceive you). Your discernment is not its strongest under this influence so it is best to be still and quiet until the energy passes. Take this time to do some spiritual, inner work.
9/21 :: Sun (core essential Self) ~trine~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This energy makes you want to get things done, by any means necessary and you may tend to come on a little strong – but it’s all good. The work you want to do, is work that needs to be done and in doing it and facing things head-on, you will gain insights about your Self that fortify your foundation so that your life can evolve to the next level organically. This intense and powerful energy is transformative in nature and will provoke you to think deeply about your own life; what you need, desire and deserve. You may find that some aspects of your life need to be reformed or released – go for it – this energy makes reform and release easier than usual. It’s a good time to make an impression or an impact on others, but be sure to keep it on the Highest level possible. Any actions or statements used to manipulate others for selfish gain can/will backfire on you in a big way. This is a positive, uplifting, transformative energy – use it as such to clear the debris and create the life you were born to live.
9/22 :: Fall Equinox :: Harvest Time ::Rhythm is a beautiful thing!
Taking some time at the turn of each Season notifies the Universe that you are ready, willing and able to co-create with Mother Earth & Father Sky. Fall Equinox is the time of year to bring all your projects to a close, finish whatever you can and start looking toward new projects. Balance & Integrate what is working and release the rest. If you willingly (and lovingly) release that which is not working, the next Season will go a lot smoother when you go to truly close the year in preparation for a new Solar year. Harvest is about assessing & gathering all that you’ve created for the year, and ultimately, reaping the rewards of all your hard work and labor. Some of your *Harvest* will be tangible, creative projects that can & will bear fruit now that they are complete, stable or in place … and some of your *Harvest* will be intangible, in that, you have further cultivated your own Being over the last year and now you (and others) can benefit from your personal integration, individual gifts & evolved consciousness. Align with your Higher Self & expand your goals for the coming season – think bigger! Fall Equinox is a time of balance, a time of balance between Light & Shadow and takes us from movement out in the world, to more inner, “work with what you’ve got” type of energy, using your resources & creations to build on & expand, primarily behind the scenes in preparation for Spring Initiation, 6-months from now. Libra is the Sign of the Season and is Ruled by Venus, which reminds us that *ALL Life* is inextricably connected. Any imbalances affect all life (eventually). As living, conscious Beings, we strive for balance in all that we think, feel, say and do. You can access your inner-Libra and re-center, so that you are more effective in your Being-ness and more useful to Life in general.
