First Day of Autumn--a bit tense
Today (September 22) at 11:09pm The Sun moves into Libra. Happy Birthday, Libra!
As we know this coincides with the end of summer and the beginning of Fall. Happy falling leaves, good bye sunblock.
During Libra the accent is on negotiations. Interestingly, the Mideast Peace negotiations have begun again although I don't know if Saturn's placement in Libra for the next two years will be helpful. Or specifically, I don't know if the tension between Pluto in Capricorn with Saturn in Libra will be a real catalyst for change---or a catalyst for something else.
Neither planet tolerates superficial moves. But this is challenging since Libra (when it is unprocessed) can be a bit shallow. And Capricorn likes things hard and difficult. God knows we have been feeling this tension between both signs all summer.
What will be interesting to watch is if Saturday's Sun Square Pluto (September 25 8:26pm) and next week's Sun conjunct Saturn (Thursday September 30) will present us with challenges. It may throw some stuff in the air that we have to deal with during the Libra lunar cycle which begins on October 7.
Watch and see.
