“Other Is A Reflection Of Self… Heal Them Both In The Heart

We are approaching a shift in consciousness as Nature moves towards the Fall Equinox.. Fall Equinox is when the Sun moves into the sign of Libra and there is equal day and night. This is a balancing point of the year and a natural call to be in community. Libra is the vibration of relationship, collaboration, reconciliation, and partnership. Summer is now waining. Mother Nature has place her life force into the seeds, fruits, and pulse of the plants. It is when we prepare our energy to be more quiet and go inward for reflection. At this turning point, we need our community to prepare, support, and reflect on what has transpired. If we go to a societal level this is a call to heal, reconcile, and reconnect in our hearts again. 

We were torn apart and polarized through the times of the Pandemic. Family, Friends, Communities, Neighbors, and Social Groups spiraled into fear, division, isolation, loneliness, and betrayal. We are now two and half years out and the Astrology/Cosmos is inviting us to return to Union, Heart Intelligence, Balance, Reflection, and Healing. Divided we will fall. Together we will Heal. Now is the time to let go of being right or wrong- both are Prideful. Now, remember our Souls and the wisdom of the ancients when they say, “Namaste” The light in me honors the light in you. Or from the Mayan, “In Lak E’ch Ala K’in”- I am another you and you are another me. We are all One Energy. We are all inter connected. We all need to be embraced, loved, seen and be able to fulfill our purpose. We need each other. This is the highest expression of Libra, Fall equinox, and this time of year. Forgive. Communicate. Apologize. And, always return to Heart Intelligence. Love each other. 

This cycle starts with the Pisces Full Moon conjunct Neptune on Sep 10. Pisces and Neptune are the frequency of Unconditional Love, Cosmic Consciousness, and Imagination. The moon is our need for nurturing and is floating in the waters of Spirit. We need to reconnect to our Spiritual Selves within and without. Within our selves and see it without in others. Remember, the other is another you. Raise your vibration and offer a helping hand to another. Open your arms and offer up a hug and a smile. 

There are many trines and oppositions at this time as well. Oppositions energetically are mirrors and opportunities for dialog. With all of this reflective energy in the aspects and the season shift of into Libra’s Fall Equinox, we can understand ourselves better through relationship. Trines are mystical opportunities that can take two opposites and bring them to a harmonic balancing point. The astrology is helping us to take a look in the mirror and find harmony, balance, healing and creative collaboration. 

Sep 22 is the official Fall Equinox with the sun entering Libra and it is followed by the Libra New Moon on Sep 25. This portal of time is ripe for intention setting, ceremony, and community gatherings. Break bread and find common ground at this time. We need each other just as Nature thrives when all in the web of live are connected and conscious. We are Nature. We are all connected. 

Mercury is Retrograde from Sep 9 – Oct 2 and is moving from Libra back into Virgo. This is a time to let the mind heal and help out your brothers and sisters on this planet with their health and spiritual well being. Establish a routine of connection to your own center and also practice in community. This is what the yogis call Sadhana and Sangha. 

This time is also the final closing of a nearly two year long square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. These planets have been squaring since the end of 2020 and are coming into their final approach this October. It is final 3rd quarter square and is about healing, resolution, reconciliation, and depth of understanding after a crisis. 

Please use to this gift of the astrological energies to cultivate peace, healing and moment forward. This is a precious time that we have to tune into each other and move forward from the the last two and half years of trauma- and really life times of karmic build up. Now is the Time. Open your hearts and meet another with a Smile. A Hug. An Acknowledgment. A Forgiveness. A Namaste, In Lak Ech, Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ. We will all be better for it.
