September Equinox

Welcome to the September Equinox!  Note that the Sun enters Libra on 22 September and falls overhead the equator, and it is mid-season.  In the northern hemisphere, it is the middle of autumn and we are coming to the end of the harvest.  Tune in to the annual cycle of the Sun.  What does this mean for us?

The time the Sun enters Libra is 7. 22 pm GMT.  Astrologers often draw up a chart for this to see what the energies look like over the next 6 weeks.  Read this as a general, collective trend.  Is there an aspect of your life in which you want to adjust the balance?  Do you feel you want to fight for justice and that things have swung too much one way?

“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread”, as the saying goes.  It is tempting now, with the Moon in Aries at the Equinox, to take decisive action without thinking of the consequences.  Patience and caution are needed, particularly in these devisive times.  Plan ahead, do your ground work, and be prepared for developments to take their time.  Be thorough, not leaving a stone unturned!

Empowerment or manipulation?

We can either empower ourselves and others, be encouraging and supportive, or we can manipulate and try and control each other’s thoughts and actions.  Manipulation can come from anywhere – friends, family, work colleagues, or authority, and of coursee ourselves.  Keep awake and aware.  Sometimes, it is hard to know whether to speak out about issues that concern us, or to keep quiet.

“It is well, when in difficulties, to say never a word, neither black nor white.  Speech is silver but silence is gold.”  Muriel Spark in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.


There is plenty of good will in this equinox chart.  The main thing is to be hopeful and enjoy debate, listening to different points of view without being judgemental.  Life moves on and progresses if we can acccept a divergence of opion and debate.

Enjoy the Eq1unox and make the most of the fruits of your harvest – whether psychological or literal!  Go and pick  apples, blackberries, and damsons!
