At Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere we enter the West Direction on our Medicine Wheel. It is the place of adulthood, self-responsibility, and personal empowerment. The colour of the West is Indigo Black. It is also called The Looking Within Place. The guardians of the West, until Winter Solstice on Dec 21, are Grizzly Bear, strength, Black Horse, movement and freedom, and The Thunderbeings, power. As Grandfather Sun travels through the West Direction he visits The Falling Leaves Time (Sept 22 to Oct 22) The Freeze Up Time (Oct 22 to Nov 21) and The Long Nights/Long Snows Time (Nov 21 to Dec 21). It really is a turning-in time to discover our strength, inner freedom, and personal power. The Lunar Force (intuitive knowing) strengthens as darkness dominants.
At Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere you are beginning a new Medicine Wheel cycle. You are entering the East Direction, the place of awakening and inspired new beginnings. The colour of the East is red for the rising Sun. The guardian who guides you until Summer Solstice (Dec 21) is Eagle, clear vision and keen insight. This Winged One also carries your prayers to Creator and Great Mystery as he flies higher and higher. As Grandfather Sun visits your East Direction he enters The Budding Trees Time (Sept 22/23) the Growing Time (Oct 22/23) and the Flowering Time (Nov 21/22). The Solar Force (inspiration and initiation) becomes dominant for you.
For all of us the astrological Sun is entering Libra, the sign of partnership, harmony, and balance. In its highest expression Libra is the mediator and peacemaker. The shadow side of Libra is to be indecisive and passive aggressive, making the other person make the decision and then not liking the outcome. Equinox means equality (equal day and night) and harmonious balance (Libra). So wherever we are in the world let us focus on inner balance and peace. When the Sun enters 00 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) they are considered World Points. (That is also true when any of the planets enter these degrees). Again let us focus on balance, harmony, and peace for our world.
Another important shifts happened earlier today. Mercury in Virgo has been retrograde since Aug 30. At 1.31 am EDT today (Sept 21 at 10.31 pm PDT) he moved Direct (forward motion). Thank goodness as it has been a challenging retrograde. When a planet changes direction on such a significant day the energy carries into the new cycle. So Mercury rules our thoughts and perceptions. In Virgo I see him as our guide leading us across the Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness. But Mercury is still in his retrograde shadow until Oct 06/07 so be aware of your focus. He enters Libra on Oct 07. Peace and harmony is the gift. We will just have to see if that manifests in the world. But it can manifest for you if that is what you choose.
ॐ Namasté - Blessings!
