On the September 23rd Equinox, the Sun moves into the zodiac of Libra and we experience equal hours of day and night.
The September Equinox is also our halfway mark through the astrological year and our signpost that the calendar year is slowly coming to an end.
It’s amazing to think there are only three or so months left of 2019. How are you going to use them? How do you want to finish up the year?
For some of us, we may feel called to roll up our sleeves and get to work on our goals. For others, we may feel called to relax and to focus on our health and wellbeing.
The September Equinox also brings a change of seasons and this change in seasons shifts the direction and flow of energy that we get to work with.
In the Northern Hemisphere, we move from Summer to Autumn and energy begins preparing to move from an outward, masculine state to an inner, feminine state.
Summer is a time of masculine expression. It is a time to put ourselves out there, to get things done, take action, and to celebrate our journey.
Now, as the leaves begin to fall and the weather gets cooler, Mother Nature begins preparing for a type of death, and we too may feel called to let things go.
We may also feel a need to “put things on ice” or to release our attachment to taking action and making decisions in order to see where things may flow on their own.
In the Southern Hemisphere, the seasons change from Winter to Spring and energy begins moving from an inner, feminine state into an outward, masculine state.
Winter is a time of feminine expression. It is a time to retreat within, to spend time in reflection, and to think about how we can best support, nourish, and nurture ourselves. It is also a creative time and one where we can dream, manifest, and envision all we would like to achieve.
Now, with Spring in the air, we can take all of our hopes and dreams, and begin turning them into realities. We can take all we have learned from this time in retreat and start blossoming into action.
Even though our location will determine how we will experience these Equinox energies, on this day, all of us will experience this equality and balance between light and dark energies.
The scales will be balanced and we will be able to experience the merging of these two energies to the point where we can feel them as one.
Here in this physical world, duality is presented to us and we can label things as wrong or right, black or white, male and female.
On a day like the Equinox however, everything is in balance. There is no you and me, or this and that, instead there is just one. One planet, one world, and even one soul.
Imagine for a moment that we are all just one giant soul that split off into multiple bodies, multiple animals, and multiple plants in order to experience life in all the many ways possible.
Imagine that we are all one and the same, that you are in everything and everything is in you. Feel into this idea that every animal you see, plant you touch, and person you meet is really just a different fragment of your soul.
We all share the same soul. We all come from the stars and we will all return to the stars. We are all one; we are all just Source energy.
As our home planet aligns in this perfect harmony and balance on the Equinox, we can feel into this idea, and recognize that we are as much the tree as it is us, and we are as much our enemies or the people we admire as they are us, we are all just an independent expression of the same soul.
Besides feeling into the expression of oneness, the September Equinox also serves as a reminder to bring some balance into our lives and to take ownership of the direction we are heading in.
At the time of the 2019 Equinox, we will have 9 cosmic bodies in Cardinal signs, which are the signs that rule over this idea of leadership, pushing forward, and breaking new ground.
With so many planets in Cardinal signs, it is a time to really think about how we can pivot the things in our life that are no longer working for us.
Overall, the September Equinox 2019 is a time to celebrate equality and to recognize the oneness in all of us. It is a time to focus on bringing balance into our lives and to start thinking about how we wish to wrap up the calendar year.
A channeled message from my heart to yours:
“The Earth shifts on this day to bring equal hours of light and day. These equal hours may go missed, but in your heart you can make a wish. A wish to see the Sun again, a wish to see the Moon. A wish to find yourself again and to remember all that is in bloom. There are things that die and things that leave you, things that shed, and things that grieve you. But within us all one by one, there are chances to rise, chance to bloom, and chances to plant ourselves again. Just like Mother Earth rebirths herself during these cycles, so too can you. It is never too late to begin again, it is never too late to challenge the way your wheel is turning. Turn it faster, turn it slower, rotate it on its head. You always have the power, you just have to discover it for yourself. The Equinox is a time of balance but also a time we can restore the equilibrium of our mind, body, and soul. Hold a glass of water in front of you around the time of noon. Clutch it between your hands and ask for it to recharge you, restore you, return you back to One. Life will go on throughout the day but a part of you will be restored, a part of you will heal. A part of you will find that self that will always and only ever be real.”
