Fall Is Here & So Is The Libra Sun, 9/22/16!

Astro Sun Sign WheelThe Autumn Equinox arrives the same day as the Sun glides into charming Libra on Thursday September 22, 2016. Relationships of all types are now in the forefront for the next few weeks – family, friends, marriages, business partners. It’s fun to be with people, to chat, flirt, cajole. This very social 7th sign of the Zodiac, ruled by Venus, seeks cooperation and genial negotiations in both business and personal interactions.

The Libra way is to see both sides of an issue before making decisions. Seeking harmony by trying to be “fair” can sometimes lead to appearing wishy-washy. Using the “Pros/Cons” list method for making decisions can just draw the selection process out. Be aware that important action can be stalled by over think. Paying attention to instinct and being honest will give a more direct line to a choice. Don’t hesitate to show your spine when needed (some may be surprised when the Libra inner tensile strength is revealed), you’ll still be loved!

Even if it isn’t your Sun or Rising sign, the Libra Sun will still cast a glow. Along with the influence of transiting Jupiter, the upbeat, ”good luck” planet, 9/9/16 – 10/10/17,  you may notice a definite lean towards the lush things in life – music, good food, beauty – to warm and lift spirits. My suggestion for anything Libran is always: meet some fun folks for brunch / lunch!

Libra Sun * Fall Equinox  9/22/16 – 10:22 AM Eastern / 7:22 AM Pacific

*Gemstone: Aventurine * Power colors: Blues and violets * Body Part: Kidneys

BTW:  The Scale is Libra’s Astrology symbol. All other Zodiac signs are either people or animals. (Interpret that however you wish.)

And, Heads up!  Last but not least: Mercury Retrograde ends – the communication planet stops its reverse trek and goes Direct. Give it a few days. Our gadgets will no longer seem to have a mind of their own. 😈 

 

 

 

Harvest Full Moon in Pisces, 9/16/16!

Astro Harvest_moonOn Friday, not only do we have a Harvest Full Moon in sensitive Water sign Pisces, there is also a Lunar Eclipse in this last sign of the Zodiac. Emotions, creativity, intuition may be intense. Let’s stay grounded and in the moment as much as possible. Reality may often bite, but it can be handled without escapist, mind altering options. Take care of your inner self.

A “Full” phase is a time to complete projects, look for results, etc. We start to see the end product of what ideas/efforts were begun at the time of the New Moon in Virgo back on 9/1/16.

BTW – “Harvest” refers to a Full Moon that occurs closest to the Fall / Autumnal Equinox. (Which will happen when the Sun moves into Air sign Libra on 9/22/16.)

* Pisces Full Moon: 9/16/16 –  3:05 PM EDT / 12:05 PM PDT

Founding director Lonnie G. Bunch, III says, “This is not (nor was it ever intended to be) the National Museum of Discrimination…For me, the African American experience is an experience not of tragedy, but of unbelievable belief — belief in themselves, belief in an America that often didn’t believe in them”.
