"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Autumnal Equinox & Libra New Moon

   It's that glorious time of year in the northern hemisphere when we being to seek balance and harmony once more after a hectic summer season. The Sun moved into Libra on Monday night, September 22nd, then very early today, the Moon joined the Sun for the Libra New Moon. I'd like to be able to say everyone could breathe a sigh of relief, if only everyone agreed to play fair. Alas, not all those in charge of mundane issues consider playing fair... What's a sentient being to do?! If you're reading this, you can decide to seek balance for yourself, regardless of others' intentions, because as we have all experienced, change begins with us!

   With the Sun and Moon at the first degree of Libra and aligned with Venus, Libra's ruler, values, money and love are highlighted this coming month. Who are you spending your time with, what are you spending your money on? Who do you love or want to be with? These are the inner questions behind the outer efforts to maintain or manifest harmonious relationships. Whether love relationships, business partnerships or the people you see around you at work or play every day, take stock of the imbalances and your role in creating more harmony.

   Attributes of this Cardinal Air sign are thinking, logic, relating, debate, judgement, partnership and balance, among others. Where are you feeling out of balance, out of sorts, out of touch or overwhelmed...? That's where to begin - regulating any excesses and being open to making space in your life for others to offer you what you need or want.  Acceptance, forgiveness, compromise and healing are also attributes of Libra, for in order to regain harmony, one must find a way to accept one's short-comings as well as those of others.

  Remember, keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground~
