Equinoxes are a good time in general to consider how to move forwards; and to decide what you feel safe giving up as you do so; and which attitudes, approaches and even objects you're happy to let go of.
In addition, Pluto, the planet which also has transformative influences, will ‘station’, adding to the current tone of events: it’s time to get those great ideas and plans into gear; to transform your plans into exciting activities and ventures.
It's a great time to de-clutter the house, to let go of emotions and ideas which you've outgrown; and to refresh fitness and health, too.
Wednesday's New Moon in Libra will also help you to turn a page, so start thinking balance and harmony, too. Embrace the willingness to bring fresh air into your life; and celebrate equal day and night!
Interesting facts: The sun sets faster around the equinoxes; and it rises and sets due east and west. While ‘equinox’ means equal night (from the latin, to denote a time when day and night are of equal length), the term ‘equilux’ is used to denote the actual time that equal night and day will occur the world over, as this varies according to your latitude and longitude, by a few days before the spring equinox and a few days after the autumn equinox.
The equinox is marked by the entry of the Sun into Libra, which will occur on Tuesday, September 23 at 02h29m GMT; and at 12h29m AEST. Photo of sunset courtesy of Surflife Australia Photography.
