Fall Equinox and New Moon in Libra
The Fall Equinox is Monday, September 22, 2014. This is the point in the year when day and night BALANCE. After today the scale is tipped. The days will gradually shorten and the nights will commensurately lengthen.
The Sun is currently in Virgo, which is a sign that relates to attention needing to be given to PURIFICATION and HEALTH.
PLUTO has been moving retrograde and turns around (stations direct) tonight. Pluto will be at 11 degrees of CAPRICORN.
HYGEIA, the goddess of health, will be at 11 degrees of CANCER. Therefore these two forces will directly oppose each other.
Pluto governs the process of elimination. Capricorn rules the KNEES, JOINTS, TEETH, BONES and SKELETAL STRUCTURE.
Cancer rules the most feminine parts of the body, including the BREASTS, OVARIES, AND UTERUS. Cancer also governs the DIGESTIVE SYSTEM and LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.
This opposition indicates a need for REGENERATION and HEALTH RENEWAL.
Pluto is related to the element of FIRE. The Tarot Trump for Pluto is THE LAST JUDGMENT. A symbol of Pluto is the phoenix, a mythical creature that DIES IN FLAMES AND IS REBORN FROM ITS ASHES. Those currently witnessing the fiery devastation from the King Fire, or breathing the smoke from that conflagration, understand how this symbolism is being out-pictured into the world.
In world news, the EBOLA outbreak continues in West Africa. The situation is CRITICAL.
Pluto in Capricorn relates to the WILL-POWER OF THE ESTABLISHMENT. Hygeia in Cancer relates to NURTURANCE AND SUPPORT. The Tarot Trump for Cancer is THE CHARIOT, which is the vehicle of this aid. Supplies are being shipped to West Africa in order to bring assistance and relief to those struggling to contain the Ebola outbreak.
“If the outbreak isn’t stopped soon, it could spread to other countries and last for years, according to CDC officials.”
Ideally, the astrological transit of Pluto opposing Hygeia will mark a positive TURNING POINT IN THIS HEALTH CRISIS. It could also indicate the opposite and the situation will worsen in West Africa, or spread to other areas. Either way, today ought to be beginning of a MARKED CHANGE.
The SUN MOVES INTO LIBRA tonight, which is the case every Fall Equinox.
Tuesday, September 23, is the NEW MOON IN LIBRA.
The Tarot Trump for Libra is JUSTICE. We all need to focus on our health and the health of the world in order to bring about NEW EQUILIBRIUM.
