2020 The Equinoxes
Autumn Northern Hemisphere
and Spring Southern Hemisphere
The Medicine Wheel aligns with the seasons. When Grandfather Sun enters 00 degrees of a Cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) a new season begins. A new Direction opens for us to walk through. There are four Directions but also the Above, Creator and the Starry Ones, the Below, the Earth Mother, and the Within, the Sacred Self. The Medicine Wheel is the Circle of Life.
The Sun enters Libra on September 22 at 9.31 am EDT and in the Northern Hemisphere it is Autumn Equinox and we enter the West Direction of our Medicine Wheel. It is the place of adulthood, inner strength, and personal responsibility. The Guardians of the West Direction are Grizzly Bear, inner strength, Black Horse, movement and freedom, and The Thunder Beings, Cosmic Power. The West is also called the Looks Within Place. The next three months it is important to discover our Sacred Center where our inner power lives.
In the Southern Hemisphere (9.31 pm AWST Perth, Australia) when the Sun enters Libra it is your Spring Equinox, the place of awakening to inspired new beginnings. It is time to plant seeds of new creative ideas that will grow and blossom over the next three months. Your Guardian is Eagle, the power of prayer and the ability to have keen insight to see the truth. Eagle carries our hopes and visions to Creator to be blessed by Great Mystery.
While the Sun visits Libra the astrological Earth visits Aries (Sept 22 to Oct 22). Our Animal Totem guides for the Libra Sun are Crow, Sacred Law and justice and fairness for all, and Raven, magic of The Mysteries. Libra is found on the Tarot Constellation of the High Priestess, balanced judgment through intuitive awareness. It is a symbol for social wisdom and public truth. Truth is not something someone else tells us to believe it is our Inner Knowing. The Earth in Aries is guided by Falcon, clarity of vision, and Hawk, Spiritual Messenger. We must pay attention to the messages from Great Mystery as we navigate the path ahead. It is filled with challenges but also opportunities to create a new way of living and being. Aries is found on the Tarot Constellation of The Emperor, Life Force and Realization of Personal Empowerment. 2020 is the year of The Emperor. We have been challenged to become empowered. (The Animal Totems are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere but the Tarot Constellations are the same).
The next four weeks have many challenges. Mercury (our thoughts, perceptions, and how we communicate) is currently in Libra (justice and fairness leads to harmony for all). He entered Libra on Sept 05. Mercury will enter Scorpio on Sept 27 and retrograde Oct 13 at 11 degrees Scorpio and move direct at 25 degrees Libra on Nov 03. He is asking us to review, rethink, and revise what we are focused on. It is time for healing and transformation. He enters his Retrograde Shadow Sept 23 when he is at 25 degrees Libra and he will be square Saturn Rx at 25 degrees Capricorn (strengthening our sense of inner power). Squares asks us to find new ways of doing things and in this case new ways of thinking. On Sept 24 Mercury in Libra will oppose Mars Rx in Aries. There may be some intense confrontations personally and universally. Be the spiritual mediator. This sets up Mars retrograde in Aries repeating his First Quarter Squares (decision, action, and breakthrough) to the Capricorn cluster.
In August Mars moving direct in Aries interacted with his first square to Jupiter Rx in Capricorn Aug 04, squared Pluto Rx in Capricorn Aug 13 and squared Saturn Rx in Capricorn Aug 24. All these Capricorn planets were Retrograde, review, re-evaluate, revise. Capricorn is society. This second wave Mars is retrograde. And he does not like going backward. He is the planet of action. He is also the planet of aggression and anger. Watch for situations where anger is being expressed and walk away. This activation begins Sept 29 when Mars Rx at 25 degrees Aries squares Saturn at 25 degrees Capricorn (feelings of limitation and restriction). But Saturn, early morning this same day, began forward motion so we may be able to respond and redirect those feelings instead of reacting. Pluto moves direct on Oct 04 and is squared by Mars Rx at 22 degrees Aries/Capricorn on Oct 09 (healing and transformation). Oct 13 Mercury goes Retrograde and Mars Rx at 21 degrees Aries opposes the Sun at 21 degrees Libra (conflict between self and others or finding spiritual balance). On Oct 19 Mars Rx at 19 degrees Aries squares Jupiter at 19 degrees Capricorn (revisioning our Soul purpose path). There are other planetary activations that make October an intense but transformational time which we will write about at a later time. For now work with these Mars First Quarter Squares, make a decision to breakthrough to a new way of being. Mars moves forward Nov 13 and will square Pluto again on Dec 23. Transformative action.
As we mentioned October is intense from an astrological perspective. Remember we are still in the Virgo New Moon cycle of healing into wholeness. On Oct 16 with the Libra Super New Moon a new cycle of peace and harmony is the gift.
Namaste and blessings,
