The Great Wheel Turns: Astrology Overview September 18th – 24th, 2023

September 18th, 2023

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

This week on September 23rd, we reach the midpoint of the astrological year, as the Sun crosses the World Axis at the Libra Equinox – known as Alben Elfed by the Druids. The seasons shift – from Summer to Autumn in the North and from Winter to Spring in the South.

Night and day are once again of equal length and in perfect equilibrium – dark/light, Yin/Yang, inner/outer in balance. But we are on the cusp of transition and from now in the Northern hemisphere the year begins to wane and from this moment darkness begins to defeat the light.

This year, the Sun at 0° Libra aspects the Galactic Centre, Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn and Neptune in Pisces….. huge elemental forces are in play. As the time-lines shift, the field is very active- so choose your bandwidth and trajectory carefully. Everything matters, everything counts.

The more you individuate, the more your inner life is in exact harmony with your outer life. You drop the need for being special, for drama, for bells and whistles. Then the heart of your spiritual practice becomes internal, invisible and unnoticed by everyone else.

In the spiral of each Sacred Year, the Equinoxes form two of the eight points of light along with two Solstices and four Gateways. At these times, by evoking the spiritual with a meaningful physical ritual or offering, you are recognising and making visible your process that is just as much a part of your reality as the material world:

As you create your offering:

  • go within and empty out space, composting your old ideas to make fertile soil for new creativity and vision
  • take inventory of what’s working /not working, of lessons learned
  • honour the harvest whether a harvest of the things planted in your garden or the harvest of intentions that you set at the March Equinox
  • tie up loose ends, complete projects, plant bulbs
  • prepare for a conscious Wintering

No sign forecasts today-I’m needing to rest.
