AUTUMNAL EQUINOX – Friday, Sept. 23, 2011, 2:05 AM PDT
NEW MOON IN LIBRA 4º – Tuesday, Sept. 27, 4:09 AM PDT

The point of solar balance where the light of day is equal to the dark of night is upon us ~ Autumnal Equinox. We honor and celebrate our life-giving Sun as it reaches the equator, crosses over, and heads into the southern hemisphere to bring them into their high season of summer and to bring the northern hemisphere in just three months time into its farthest reaches from the light – Winter Solstice. The Equinox is marked by the movement of the Sun out of Virgo and into 0º Libra, cardinal air sign and ruled by the only feminine planet, Venus. Venus, at home in her own sign of Libra now, is deep in her feminine expression of harmony, beauty, diplomacy and social grace. Read More »

September’s Focus is on Creative Expression, Intuitive Knowing, Boundaries and Power
As the lurching, panicked mind of the mass consciousness gets louder and louder and more media attention reflects it, the need is essential for us to keep our sacred space, our sanctuaries safe, and our centering in Spirit. We also must play and dance…as if our lives depended on it!
Through times of destruction, the signature of the Age of Kali, the fall of form and the remembrance of 9/11, there are cycles of birth and beginning that may be hard to see at this point. However, the greatest gifts come on the cycles of seeming loss and tragedy. Humanity is being borne into it’s true power, and all false icons to the god of power are imploding, as they should.

Moon in Pisces opposite Sun in Virgo 19º. Monday, Sept. 12, 2011 1:27 AM MDT
The Harvest Moon lights up the late summer night in the wateriest of water signs ~ Pisces. Symbolized by two fish bound together, ruler of the oceans that reflect the boundless spiritual energy beneath the surface of all physical existence. The powerful mystery of the sea from which all creativity emerges like Botticelli’s Venus is also where all is merged, fluid, and connected and moves as one. Pisces, so subjective, sensitive and intuitive as she responds to impressions from her environment both internal and external. Pisces is our connection to the divine source of compassion. She teaches us to surrender to that which is larger than our limited physical existence and to what cannot be controlled by our short-sighted ego selves. Her ruler, Neptune, dissolves, softens, and distorts reality, limitations and boundaries opening us to the great feminine void and idealistic possibility and vision.

It’s September 7th, and I am feeling the last days of summer as the air gets cool, crisp and the leaves begin to fall to earth. The morning walks in the foothills signal change in every way possible, with the changing of the summer green grasses to autumn gold, to the absolute cool morning air that requires a light jacket or sweater.
The Earth Mother is shouting CHANGE through our annual seasonal shifting. Yet, that is not all, as we see a multitude of other signals of intense and massive change. There are too many changes to name, coming through our culture and the landscapes around the world. The aquarian age is continuing to crack the status quo and realign how we do life.
