Equinox Mabon this season’s guide

The EQUINOX the only one of two days in the year to have equal day and night. This is so important when you think about it. Everywhere on earth there is the same amount of light and darkness today. It is the start of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and Spring in the Southern. The days are getting shorter here in the North and we are in the Feminine yin time of year. We are going into the death and sleep part of the natural year here in the North while our southern neighbors will begin to see spring. 

A number of festivals in different major religions are being celebrated as well starting on yesterday’s New moon. It is the Jewish New Year 5778 years. It also coincides with Islamic New Year which is rare. To all my family friends and clients Happy New Year.

 

Happy MABON Wiccan Pagan Celtic Ancient 8 wheel of the year turning point. The third major season in a Natural Year starting with Spring. This is the element of AIR.

It’s LIBRA TIME. This is one of the Major Cardinal turning points of the year. 

LIBRA is the sign of RELATIONSHIPS marriage traditionally. It is the sign of Karmic JUSTICE in the TAROT #8 begins the next three months journey. 

 

It’s very important to focus on walking a balanced life in all ways: in our spiritual mental emotional and physical ways. Examine what you need to bring more balance into your life.It’s a pleasant socializing time. Up here in the North, as it gets colder and darker socializing is what helped our ancestors to stay alive. Get out and communicate network and engage. Libra is ruled by VENUS and she is in diligent Virgo where she practical earthy organizing working and paying attention to health community pets and perfection. This is a good time to start yoga or change your diet as the seasons change. Venus in Virgo’s shadow is criticism. The need for balancing this is vital now.

The AUTUMN EQUINOX chart is used as an overall forecast for the next three months. It features a  lot of earth elements Mercury @ 17 VIRGO Mars @ 11 Virgo VENUS @ 3 Virgo; Pluto @ 16 degrees CAPRICORN RETRO and ASTEROID JUNO @ 4 degrees Capricorn.

The GRAND FIRE TRINE continues to hold sway between Eris and URANUS in ARIES trine the North Node in LEO trine Saturn in SAGITTARIUS.  There is a lot of energy for breakthroughs major change and Chaos. 

SATURN and LILITH are close to the Galactic Center Square CHIRON

Saturn will conjunct the Galactic Center in November and December until Saturn enters CAPRICORN DEC 19. Lilith is beaming in the dark shadow side of the rejected feminine big time through the Cosmic VAGINA. This is the cosmic YONI and Saturn is Father Time in Patriarchal symbolism. SATURN will be seen as inseminating that Great Galactic Yoni for the next few months. Get in touch with LILITH’s will; her free erotic refusal to be dominated by the Patriatchy. A lot of sexual secret reveals will come out into the open as JUPITER is in SCORPIO. This energy can also bring up ancient sexual abuse rape and other tortures from the memory banks to be healed now with CHIRON the Wounded Healer in PISCES nearing his last degrees in Pisces. Do that healing now. Call upon LILITH to give you the strength to say FUCK YOU to all sexual abuser rapists on the physical emotional mental and spiritual levels.

REMEMBER that SATURN enters CAPRICORN Dec. 19 -December 16 2020. With a little Forewards motion into AQUARIUS March 23 2020-July 2 2020. This is a new era. and more about that in depth. Its CAPRICORN time.

Some IMPORTANT points:

It’s Peace Day, who will you make peace with?

September 21 is the U.N. Day of PEACE. Who will you make peace with today?

It’s a day of cease-fire and non-violence. We also must become aware of the war within and how we create violence within ourselves through self-denial, criticism and insecurity. We continue to be at war within ourselves by listening to our egos, punish ourselves and allowing abusive relationships to continue. Most violence takes place at home and in schools. 

Quilt, Make Peace not war Tara Greene Sept. 21

Quilt Make Peace Not War  by Emmie Seaman

September 21st was chosen because it is usually when the Sun is on the Equator, and day and night are equal. The Sun enters the Sign of Libra, the symbol of the balance and Peace. The Autumn Equinox is on September 23rd this year. 

The Moon is in Sagittarius and trines Mars

which mirrors this inspiring energy of using masculine testosterone driven energy for positive outlooks. The positive masculine NEVER harms women. The Positive masculine’s role is to be aggressive to protect and defend the Mothers and children, the revered elder Chrone women and elderly men. Now Feminists don’t get up in arms. That is a natural biologically driven reality. 

Moon enters Capricorn and grounds us emotionally to do the business of PEACE.

Moon sextiles Neptune in Pisces which is great to build and achieve forgiveness, compassion and Oneness.

VENUS in Leo is inconjunct to Chiron in Pisces in PDT

which is also a great energy for heart opening Passion and STRENGTH for our vulnerabilities, our weaknesses, our addictions, denials, shadows but reveals out need for Oneness and connecting with spiritual source energy.

Moon trines Jupiter in Virgo

this is  very grassroots energy.  Peace extends to the earth, how we treat Her, the land, the environment. Virgo rules our food, its entire cycle from the GMO mutant Monsanto death seeds, to pollutants and toxic fertilizers, and how our food is treated,with love or institutionalized? This energy helps us examine the choices we make with our bodies and self-care. Be aware of what your body ‘s wisdom is telling you. Jupiter also loves to laugh.

Jupiter is inspiring, optimistic, educational and practical. 

Sometimes Peace is achieved by being very quiet. Spend some time just going within yourself. Meditate. 

Practice random acts of kindness. 

Be peace. Occupy Peace, it is a state of awareness. 

PEACE BE WITH YOU,

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE

Divine balance, Autumn Equinox Astrology

The ingress of the Sun into Libra marks the end of summer and the Autumn Equinox on Sept 22 @ 7:29 pm PDT/ 10:29 pm EDT/ Sept 23 2:29 am GMT. Spring is beginning down under in the Southern part of the hemisphere. It is celebrated as MABON in Pagan spirituality. 

Sun in Libra brings our consciousness and the Light into focusing on being in balance, relationships, love, marriage, the fine arts, and choices.

Day and night are only equally twice a year. The SCALES of MAAT, is the symbol of the constellation LIBRA. The great Ancient Egyptian goddess weighs the hearts of the deceased to see if they are as light as her ostrich feather diadem or not. We are in the KARMIC balance and being judged.

PLUTO, Lord of Death and Rebirth turns DIRECT 2 hours before the Equinox at 11 degrees Capricorn. This is a very powerful SOUL station turnabout. Picture yourself swivelling on your souls’ toes. If you are born within 5 days of  Dec 31- Jan -7 you will feel the heaviness of this anchoring. Check out where the 11th degree of Capricorn falls in your natal chart. That is a soul “pull your socks up” to say the least. 

The equinox chart is a forecast of the next 3 months. It’s a karmicaly complex Equinox.

Lots of 6th house type of VIRGO action in this chart. The Moon and Venus are in Virgo. Sun, Mercury, the North Node plus Athena Goddess of Wisdom and the warrior Goddesses energy is in LIBRA. But here they are focused on Virgo/Hermit overview energies of hard work, service, health, discipline, organization, accountability, conservation, the harvest, the environment and worry.

Moon in Virgo means the people’s mood may be worried about scarcities, health and jobs.

MOON and VENUS are conjunct in VIRGO and VENUS rules the new-born Libra SUN.

This is an emotional time and points to being accountable in love, which also alludes to being fiscally responsible.

The Moon is the mood of the people and Venus is love. Together in Virgo they make for a romantic, earthy, money focused tightening of the belts. Women or anyone into weight loss will rejoice.  There will be Romance on the job. Do you love, love, love your work? How much in service are you?  This also indicates workaholics.

How much worrying do you do about

1. your health, 2 money 3. diet 4.finding love v.s. being a HERMIT?

Aren’t these the 4 main things that everyone worries about?

MOON VENUS is opposite CHIRON the wounded healer in PISCES which is square Mars at 6 degrees of Sagittarius.

Neptune in Pisces is  Square to Mars.

The feeling body, the mind/emotional connection which Venus and the Moon in Virgo represents may be feeling very vulnerable and wounded. Love hurts sometimes, doesn’t it? Bringing spiritual compassion and unconditional love into relationships with yourself and at work is important.  It may be hard to keep from flying off the handle and exiting for the road less travelled-square to Mars in Sagittarius.  Be careful not to be seduced by numbing out escapism to drugs, alcohol, workaholism, delusions, illusions and false prophets/False profits.

 There may be more sad news about mass shootings in the U.S.  because of antidepressants making people psychotic.

Mercury is conjunct the North Node in Libra, good for socializing, grace, balanced viewpoints, Fairness is important. 

JUPITER is at the 15th degree of Leo trine Uranus in Aries in a wide trine to Mars in Sagittarius.

It’s all about opening your heart to creative self-expression, childlike delight and passion which in itself sets the heart alight and revolutionizes actions to be free, to learn higher wisdom, knowledge and philosophy, in other words broadens ones perspective. Becoming a  Dharma Bum as Jack Kerouac would have put it.  Have you read that classic book?

Jupiter is quincunx to Chiron in Pisces, exact the next day.

Don’t try to hide the wounds behind braggadocio and partying too much.

Saturn is at 19 degrees Scorpio conjunct CERES the dwarf planet of the Earth, the Great Goddess called Demeter to the Greeks. Saturn is karma and our own survival is totally dependent on our right relationship with the earth Mother Herself. Vesta ancient goddess of sacred sexuality and focus is also conjunct Saturn. We must work on healing, integrating and Honoring the split between the Mother and the whore, in our culture, an ancient Patriarchal, SATURN, split. Sexuality is sacred. The treatment of women parallels the treatment of the earth herself and her children.  

Saturn is sextile to the Moon and Venus in Virgo and the three planets form a FINGER OF GOD or Yod aspect to Uranus conjunct the South Node in Aries. Quincunx’s are difficult aspects but ones which must be dealt with. Issues of accountability, renewal of resources, creating new technologies and freedoms for women {Moon and Venus} and children and agricultural resources is very important.The work force is going through huge upheavals, the use of high tech and who gets to use it and how we use it responsibly are crucial.  Uranus is the God of higher consciousness liberation and freedom.
