September 22, 2014 marks the Autumnal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. Equinox means "equal night" and this is a time when the Light and Dark are in balance. We hold within us both the beautiful darkness and the light, the asuras and the devas. When we honor both without suppression or condemnation, a great healing can occur, and our Truest Nature begins to stir and climb out of dormancy. When we welcome ourselves, our wholeness, we invite an intimacy with evolution and reclamation of what has been lost. The Sun leaves orderly and analytical Virgo for balance-seeking Libra at 9:29pm CST/ 7:29pm PST. This day is Pagan Thanksgiving, a holy day in the Wheel of the Year that some of us have honored with deep reverence for a long time, a time to give thanks, offer gratitude for our blessings, for the fruits of our labor, for the abundance of the harvest both literally and figuratively. Libra is represented by the scales, and longs to find balance and justice in all areas of life.  Libra is also concerned with relationships of all kinds and finding ways to be in alignment with love, relating, connecting, and our own desires. This is a good time to reflect on where you've gotten of f track, out of alignment with your deepses desires. You can readjust and realign in all areas, especially your relationships. Reflect deeply on lessons learned, acknowledging loss and betrayal as well as triumphs and victories. Contemplate the beginnings and endings and re-beginnings of all things in life. Articulate a ritual that will invoke and manifest the dreams hidden inside your heart, seeking balance and equanimity while honoring the radical upheavals inherent in a householder sadhana lifestyle. Remember and hold on to the midline...

Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, stations direct this evening. This exaggerates the energies of this big entity, so themes of death, rebirth, and transformation will be highlighted. The Moon is currently waning, allowing for us a confrontation with the Dark, and on Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning we have a New Moon in Libra. This invites new beginnings and starting a new endeavor or ideas with increased clarity. Invoke and activate balance in your own being and life. Surrender if necessary to the pull into the Underworld, for in the Darkness, ultimately, we are healed, cooked, and nourished.

Blessed be ~*~
