Autumn Equinox

Autumn Equinox

The Mother Sun shines directly on the Equator again, and dances our day and night into balance. Since Summer Solstice, the hours of daylight have been greater than the hours from dusk to dawn. For the rest of the Wheel of the Year, the reverse holds true. 

In this final harvest, we have finished old projects and dreams. Trees releasing their leaves show us how to let go. Before turning from summer and facing winter, we reflect on what we are reaping, especially as a human family. We actively seek and uphold that which is positive.

The rhythm of the solar wheel suggests rest. We slow down to gently observe, absorb, and rejoice in Gaia. During the transition called autumn when we celebrate both bounty and impermanence, we reflect that Gaia too, is impermanent. How much time does She have? Yet She asks for trust, even given the alarms that surround us. We and the world flare in brief brilliance—and embrace the first footsteps of darkness.

Love this with my two main guardian animals prominent —crow and fox!!! I saw for an instant a great golden helix also superimposed on the picture, but I am not an artist so I would not be able to render that, but it can stay in my mind. It is more than a circle of life that we must affirm in this period of human history but rather the sacred DNA that unites us all ( unity in each one’s diversity) There are those who want to trample on this holy of holies with careless hands with megalomania filled minds.

Sun Cycling Through the Houses
Sun Cycling Through the Houses

The Astrological Sun is a primary symbol for the awareness of our unique human Self, and the creative expressions and passionate outpourings that we gift to the world. As Earth beings we circle around the Sun, year after year. 

We may follow the transiting Sun's passage through the "Houses" (the twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart to attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death.
