Welcome To Libra Season
As the energy to "take action" has been building under the organized and detailed influence of Virgo season, we are now going to hit the ground running looking to balance the areas in life that have gotten out of whack. Today marks the beginning of the race, triggering the Fall Equinox and the beginning of Libra season. Many of us have been in the awkward space between chapters ending, but new chapters not quite ready to begin. In this last week of September, we will have lots of planetary support to step out of the planning and visualization stage of our new goals and dreams, and into a place of power and action, restoring our energy, mind, body and soul, along the way.
We already have Mercury, the planet of communication and conversation, and the Goddess of love and beauty herself, Venus, in her place of power here in Libra, the sign of balance, harmony, and one-on-one relationships. Remember how Virgo season came with a warning to be mindful about how you speak to others, and yourself? How to be mindful that Virgo energy could make your tongue sharp and maybe exercise critical judgement on yourself or others? Well, with both Mercury and Venus in Libra, the energy will provide you with an opportunity to clear the air in any conversation that potentially hurt others or caused confusion during the Virgo season. We can expect everyone to lower their voices and be calmer, more pleasant and gentle. Libra is a very harmonious sign, offering balance and fairness in all that we do. Because Libra is focused on relationships (not just romantic ones), the way we communicate one-on-one will be heightened as we have the opportunity to clear the air (if needed), and to express ourselves with such ease and kindness that you can get to the bottom of any issue without "shit hitting the fan".
Today we have our Equinox! It is at this time of year that we focus on our abundance, as our ancestors used this time to harvest their crops, to help them last through the dark days of winter. It’s important for you to recognize that this is a changing time in your spiritual journey. It’s a time to quiet the mind and look inward to see what messages come up for you. If you recognize that you have a “lack” perspective (not having enough, money, energy, food, etc.), I invite you to shift your focus on what you DO have, and adopt the abundance perspective (I have love, support, shelter, etc.). As the seasons change, so do our Souls. This is a time to reflect on all we’ve accomplished and what parts within us that still need to be healed. Winter is a time for healing, so it’s only natural that we shift our focus into tying up lose ends in our harvest period, before entering into a state of hibernation and healing.
The Equinox triggers the Sun moving from its time in Virgo, to entering into Libra officially initiating Libra season. Libra season is a time when the scales of life are balanced, both naturally, or with a gentle, but loving nudge. There is an air about Libra season that literally sweeps change in so gently and peacefully, that you may not even realize the changes have taken place. Libra is all about what is fair in the world. If you have any legal matters on your plate, Libra energy will support you, making sure the decision is as fair as possible. Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and pleasure, rules Libra making things of love, beauty, and luxury a focal point. Libra gentle sweeps into our lives and makes things balanced and pretty again. Relationships, both old and new, will benefit from Libra’s energy, as there is nothing more important under this influence then making sure the relationships are balanced and filled with love.
