Happy fall equinox! With a ton of energy shifting this week, get ready for a turbulent couple days. On Tuesday, the amount of daylight and darkness will be the same, as the equinox brings a balance between the light and the dark. Unsurprisingly, this is also the same day that the sun enters Libra, the sign all about balance and harmony (it’s symbolized by the Scales for a reason!).
After leaving behind grounded and practical Virgo, we feel a new energy of harmony, fairness, and friendliness in airy and polite Libra. We may find ourselves raging against the injustices of the world. Breezy air sign Libra is open-minded, so even our most strongly held beliefs are open for second-guessing. This also means that thoughts and energies may be flighty as well.
However, just after the sun (planet of ego and self) enters the sign of the Scales, Mercury (planet of communication) leaves the sign for mysterious and alluring Scorpio on Sunday, and we’re focused on diving deep and getting to the truth in all conversations.
