The Sun: Fall Equinox
Moves into LibraSep 221:02pm
After a moonth of intense reflection opportunities, with Mercury in retrograde, and the Solar Eclipse in Leo showing us the flipside of our source Sun selves, now with the Sun in Virgo and Mercury going direct on September 5, we can start to sort it all out.
Virgo can have a tendency towards perfection, “virginal purity”. This is fine when it comes to sorting the harvest—storing only our best for seed, and grain that has been dried properly so as not to spoil; but it can be expressed negatively as fault-finding and self-righteousness.
Let’s instead use the energy to discern, motivate, do good work, and be kind, as we come to the Fall Equinox, at the beginning of Libra which rules the seventh house of relationship.
However, compassion does not mean without accountability, as the Libran scales of justice will show. There can be no true relating without first taking responsibility for self, creating balance and harmony within.
Critique can be helpful, as of a performance or business, it serves patrons as well as performers.
May we forgive, be patient, and have compassion, for ourselves and for others; and relinquish ego and open to higher consciousness, as we venture “up” into the inter-personal houses.
So mote it be.

To everything, Turn, turn, turn
There is a season, Turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under Heaven.
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep
A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracings
A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late.
