The Autumn Equinox is one of two days each year when the length of night and day are roughly equal.
During an Equinox, the planet’s tilt in relation to the Sun is at a right angle, which should produce 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night.
The Autumn Equinox falls every year on one date between September 21 and September 24.
This month, the Equinox is on Monday 23rd September (Autumn for the Northern hemisphere and Spring for the Southern Hemisphere).
The Sun moves into Libra on this day, which is the sign of balance, justice and partnerships.
I wrote about simplifying our lives for the September energy forecast as I have been getting through from Spirit that the last few months of 2019 may be challenging! They want us to be prepared and in a good place emotionally, mentally and physically to deal with any upheavals that life may bring.
The Equinox holds an expansive energy to help us establish a new balance over the next few weeks as we prepare for what is coming next in our lives.
The main focus of this new energy is around partnerships and balance. Libra is also about opposites (the scale symbol) and so we may find that disagreements and conflicts may arise too! This is to help us balance the scales and find the best solution for all involved, so don’t panic if challenges arise, especially if you are making new intentions! Everything is all in divine order.
The Autumn Equinox is also known as Mabon in the Pagan calendar. The ritual serves as a way of giving thanks for a bountiful harvest before winter sets in.
This will bring in a new energy as it is a time of transition and harvest, and a time of balance and realignment.
It’s a time for us to pause in the momentary balance of the Equinox between the tipping point into darkness of the coming winter season.
This Equinox is all about creating space for new beginnings and new adventures, so we are ready to step through the doorway to the remainder of the year.
Take stock of your current harvest, and ask yourself where you want to increase your harvest come next year.
