Everything in our universe works in cycles including the seasons creating a rhythm when we pass from one season to the next. Equinoxes happen twice a year, marking the initiation of fall and spring. The shift commences the exact moment the Sun crosses the Earth’s equator and it is the time in which the North and South regions of Earth experience equal daylight and nighttime hours. When the Fall Equinox commences in the Northern Hemisphere, the Spring Equinox takes place in the Southern Hemisphere (and vice versa).

Rudolf Steiner in his book titled Agriculture predicts a time when humanity will “live consciously with the rhythm of the seasons namely, to experience the nature in spring through the physical body, in summer through the etheric body or spiritual body, in autumn through the astral body or mental body and in winter through the ego or emotional body. Practically speaking, Autumn is about taking stock of what you’ve grown, harvesting it, and choosing how to best utilize it, magically and physically. When viewed from the 5D consciousness window autumn is the time we shift into the mental body contemplating our journey, where we have come from and where we are headed. The Equinox is the brief point where we are in perfect balance, at a still point and provides us an opportunity to view what lies ahead. In the astrological chart, the sun and the moon shine light on what lies ahead and offers guidance as we navigate back to source.

The Fall Equinox is slightly later than normal this year and in addition we find ourselves inside a wormhole. The sun enters the sign of Libra in the early hours of the 266th day of the year. In previous reports I used the analogy of a gateway where we are collecting all of the required energy to embark on our return journey to source. Using the same analogy, we are well beyond the midpoint of our journey. Being inside the wormhole provides us with opportunities to take a faster or more direct routes through the experiences we have. Wormholes or sideway elevators as Stephanie Azaria refers to them, can be unpredictable and regardless of the experiences we have while inside, we will always find ourselves closer to our desired goal upon exit.

The aspects the Sun makes which captures my immediate attention on the Autumn Equinox chart are the manifestations with Alcyone, Sedna (both in Gemini) and Pluto (Capricorn). Alcyone is the brightest and most luminous star in the Pleiades cluster, referred to as the Great Central Sun and is intimately connected to source. Alcyone represents a level of consciousness we attain and forms an exact conjunction with Sedna who is the record keeper for the divine feminine energy on our planet. The multifaceted Gemini qualities acts as a conduit for this combined energy. We are reminded in order to reveal the truth from the chaos that we may be experiencing, is to consciously connect or direct our thoughts (mind) through the heart and never forget our connection to the divine feminine. The transformation through the process of death and rebirth is facilitated by the Sun’s connection to Pluto who is currently in the sign of Capricorn where we learn to perfect the quality of our connection to source.

This theme is further refined by the steppingstone connection the Sun makes with Astraea, Vesta (both in Cancer) and Ixion (Capricorn). On our journey to source Vesta reminds that the divine feminine connection (Astraea) is a necessary element that we access through feelings (Cancer). Ixion serves as a gentle reminder that this is who are and have always been.

Although the Sesqui-quadrate or Self Control aspect the Sun makes with Jupiter is generally classified as subtle, it is anything but and has a great significance in this Autumn Equinox chart. As we get closer to source the chaos increases requiring us to make more frequent adjustments to keep us from losing our way. Jupiter is in a new cycle with the 5D Trans Neptunian Object Albion. Jupiter provides the energy to expand our consciousness and seeks the Truth from the inside out. Albion reminds us that we need to listen to our inner voice and trust it (Taurus) in order for it to grow stronger to assist us on our journey.

Other aspects that capture my interest on the Equinox chart are the Moon’s new cycle with Quaoar (Capricorn) and the Venus (Leo) – Chiron (Aries) manifestation. Albert Einstein said: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” which also applies to our journey back to source. The reflective light of the Moon on Quaoar highlights this message eloquently. Quaoar’s energy provides us the capacity to perceive entirely new thoughts and beliefs. The manifestation aspect Venus makes with Chiron has an easy free flowing feel. Once identified as almost immoveable, hurdles or blocks are removed by healing our wounds with the energy of love, the most powerful force in the universe. The fire energies of Leo and Aries encompassing this aspect, brings an even greater light and energy for our journey.

As we get closer to source, that is, recognizing the highest part of ourselves, our experiences will increase in both frequency and intensity. If we use the analogy of a marathon the most difficult portion of the event is the last few hundred meters. We need to draw on all of our resources to ensure we reach our destination, and this includes the unique information contained within the Autumn Equinox chart.

Happy Fall Equinox!
