In the Northern Hemisphere, Autumnal Equinox and the Libra sun bring the second harvest celebration of the year as the growing cycle begins to fade away. Just as things started really heating up at the Spring Equinox for the active growing cycle to begin, Autumnal Equinox brings a change toward the reflective phase of the cycle as the turn toward the darker days of the year deepens. Now the old cycle begins to fall away as the ground prepares to rest.

Autumnal Equinox, also called Mabon, occurs each year somewhere around September 21st or 23rd. This year the exact point falls on the 22nd. It sits directly across the Wheel of the Year from Spring Equinox, and here again, you find light and dark perfectly balanced. As the halfway point from Summer Solstice to Winter Solstice, Autumnal Equinox brings the awareness that change is in the air. At this time of year, you are called to let go of the growing phase of the cycle, allowing it to fall away just as the leaves begin to fall from the trees.

The Earth’s seasonal cycle can be likened to your daily cycle. One seasonal cycle to her is equivalent to one of your days. Spring represents her morning, summer her noon and afternoon, autumn her evening, and winter her night and deep sleep. She then wakes in the spring and begins her “day” all over again, just as you do. This time of year feels like dusk, as the sun begins the setting process, and things start to wind down.

Since equinoxes represent a time when the light and dark exist in sacred balance, it provides you with an opportunity to tune into the balance of your life too. Notice if you need to balance anything in your life to more effectively bring your desires into being. Perhaps you need to balance your active outer world actions with more quiet restful energy or balance your time indoors with more time spent in nature. Or maybe you need to focus your actions to get some energy flowing. You can simply ask internally what in you needs to be balanced at this time so you can begin making the necessary changes.

Choose the one or two ideas you need most to work with, then focus on those. Intentions function best when there are only one or two to concentrate on in any cycle. 

Personal Action Suggestions for Autumnal Equinox:

  • Create a ceremony and activation for any key areas of your life that need attention. Light a candle, dance, sing, or drum; do anything that enlivens your intention.
  • Fill your heart with gratitude for all that has come into being this year and whatever was energized in your ceremony.
  • Fully feel your creation desires in form, full and complete.
  • Turn all your plans over to Spirit and give thanks.
  • Write down in your journal any messages you receive about creating more balance in your life.
  • Notice if there are items in your life that you no longer use. Create some type of giveaway to release your unneeded things to a new life.
  • Tune into any ways your creations need a final boost of energy for the third harvest coming approximately six weeks from now.

Business/Professional Action Suggestions for Autumnal Equinox:

  • Celebrate all that you have brought forth during this growing cycle. Appreciation of all that has come forth provides you with energy to go forward in your creations.
  • Once you have fully honored your success, then you can notice what it’s time to leave behind or let go of. Ask yourself, “What things in my business do I need to release so that they can find a new life?” Give away unneeded items.
  • Release old unproductive ways of doing things in your business.
  • Ask yourself if there are any ways you need to balance your work and personal life further. Take notes and follow up.
  • Reflect on the use of your time in business. Do you spend time on unproductive tasks instead of the ones that drive your business forward? If so, which activities do you need to release?
  • Notice where you need to place your focus in order to be more productive, thus allowing you more time off to balance your work and life.
  • Choose your clear business focus for the next six weeks. Create a simple ceremony to energize your intentions.

Elemental Guidance:

If you have an Elemental Forces of Creation Oracle, you may want to draw cards for additional guidance from each element and/or add insight from other decks.

Give thanks to Earth and ask “What is my message of balance for my creations?”

Sun Enters Libra

 Sun Enters Libra

As the sun moves into Libra, it also brings the teaching of balance. As the teacher of balance in relationships, Libra shows you how to honor another’s point of view, balance opposites, and consider options. During this window, evaluate things that may need your attention in order to come into greater harmony and alignment.

An airy window provides an opportunity to utilize Air-related tools such as the power of words. Write, speak, network, and communicate well with others. Think in ways that uplift your creations and pay attention to any thoughts that weaken your creation capacity. If you notice any weakening thoughts, ask yourself how you can reframe them so they add energy to your creations instead.

Because sun in Air sign windows connect to the mental realm, they are good for learning new skills. Pay attention to what you need to learn next in order to take your creations to the next level. It might be that you need to up-level your technological, speaking, or writing skills to create more business success. Or you might need to improve your ability to communicate with others without adding your own opinions or emotionally reacting to what they say.

Libra loves to socialize so creating an opportunity for those in your personal or business life to come together will enliven all of you. Talk through your creations with your life partner or significant people in your life and notice if there are any ideas or things you choose to create together. Make plans to bring your dreams into fruition in ways that support all of you.
