Equinox Equality, LIBRA Season plan next three months
The SUN enters LIBRA Sept 22 2012 @ 12:20 pm PDT /3:20pm EDT /8:20 pm GMT. This is one of only two days every year where day and night are equal and all things are balanced.
AUTUMN begins in the Northern Hemisphere and SPRING in the Southern Hemisphere. It is the WESTERLY pole of the 2 days of complete Balance between day and night in the entire year.
LIBRA is the SCALES of JUSTICE
LIbra the constellation, not to be confused with the SIGN of Libra was associated in Antiquity with the Egyptian Goddess of JUSTICE -MAAT
THE EGYPTIAN GODDESS MAAT
Weighs the heart against her ostrich feather in the Hall of Judgement After death
After death the heart of the deceased was weighed against her pure white ostrich feather diadem. If one’s heart was heavier than her feather, then the deceased would return to life on earth until one;s heart was light, balanced with no regrets.
I always loved that story.
this is MABON, in Celtic nature celebrations. A great time to honor this change in seasons with ceremony. Create an altar and put fruits and leaves as gratitude. Use fall colors and say prayers and intentions for what you will create over the next quarter.
Famous, and rightly so Indian yogi YOGANANDA stated that the best time to start practicing meditation was on Libra Equinox or Aries equinox.
What was born at spring as a seed, an idea, has grown to fruition, seeded itself again and is ready to be harvested and then die to be returned to the earth for renewal, to feed new life next Spring, and on and on….
LIBRA is the sign of relationships the 7th house marriage traditionally in Astrology
LIBRA is ruled by the Goddess of LOVE VENUS of course,
Where is VENUS in your natal chart? Where is the sign of LIBRA? What does your 7th house of marriage/committed relationships hold or lacks planetary energy?
AUTUMN EQUINOX/SPRING EQUINOX
is a power GATE, one of the 4 main CARDINAL gates of the year.
We are entering the Time of increasing DARKNESS here in the NORTH. I will have to be a NORTHIST here and speak of the Northern Hemisphere which I am more familiar with.
AUTUMN EQUINOX marks the start of deepening and eentering into the DEEP FEMININE dark and mysterious months. This is a time of hibernation, rest and reflection as Nature sleeps until springs awakens life again.
LIBRA EQUINOX celebrates the marriage and equality of all and the complimentary polarities.
Celebrate the integration of the Masculine into the Feminine and vice versa.
It’s Sacred MARRIAGE time.
At Autumn Equinox we give thanks to the Sun and the EARTH and for the harvest of foods that will help us survive the long cold bare Winter months. We welcome the beautiful colors of leaves magically metamorphosing from green to orange, gold, yellow, red, brown. autumn. We frolic in the mounds of soft crunchy leaves. We honor change, life, death.
We surrender what no longer serves us, we surrender to old age, to letting go, to facing death as a necessary part of life, another pregnancy. We face the unknown of the harsh months of winter coming. We pray that we and our loved ones will be kept safe and sound by the Love and Blessings of the Goddess, that we may survive to see the birth of the LIGHT at Winter Solstice.
Make new intentions now. Three months till Dec 21, 2012. A trimester.
