Healing Equinox ~> 2012 Autumn Dragon

As our world turns, the Solar year experiences two equinoxes, marked by equal-day and equal-night, at Spring and Autumn. Each has a distinct signature: Autumn inclines towards the cocooned dark restful night, while Spring dynamically moves headlong into the light.

Tomorrow, 22nd September, at 15:50 BST , 7:50 AM PST, we reach Autumn Equinox, the point of Earth’s yearly solar cycle when light and dark exchange dominant directions, and dark nights extend into the northern he

misphere; while the light of life gets ready to spring into action in the south.

This point of balance and change heralds the ingress of the Sun into a leading cardinal sign Libra - the sign where karmic Saturn is currently exalted at anaretic 29degree, making it oh-so imperative to stay centred in heart-mind.

Concerned with peace, love and unity, Libra’s planet is Venus (now in fiery Leo) and the scales’ element is intellectual ‘Air’, which is yang in energy; this combination is generally quite fast-moving and brisk.

The weekend also see’s a 1st quarter Medicine Buddha Tara Moon, giving this Autumn equinox a lovely, quick-healing boost; before we know it there will be a massive Full Harvest Moon in only a week’s time :)

Perfect Virgo New Moon ~ September 2012

According to Buddhist philosophy, we come into this world with innate goodness, called ‘Buddha Nature’. Though inherent purity can become corrupt through circumstance, causes and conditions - karma, choices and influences, beyond innumerable layers of dense conditioning, which there is in most everyone, a pristine consciousness can be reawakened, always with awareness and sometimes with effort.

The perfection we strive to attain is therefore already within – it is just a (small!) matter of realisation. This perfect wisdom can be astrologically represented by the constellation Virgo, the flawlessly accomplished and learned Goddess, who gives herself unconditionally to humanity, in a life of practical service.

Over this weekend, both Spirit Sun and sensitive Moon conjoin in smart, practical Virgo, to renew and energise the healing power of (and for) the Divine Feminine within everyone. We all have a feminine side, from where wisdom and intuition stem (the right side of the brain). Virgo is also mindful of body and soul. Now is the time to connect to our sensible self and the Healing Goddess, to clean up our act, our altars, and our intentions; for the New Moon Saturday/Sunday 15th/16th at 3:11 British Summer Time (7:11pmPDT) at 23 Virgo, urges one to be prepared and practice humility with calm patience and insight; during the coming lunation we also reach a point of balance at Equinox (September 22nd); and there are challenging aspects to navigate before the next new moon October 15th, which command fairness, freedom, and fortitude.
