The Autumn Equinox and Harvest Moon
HarvestMoon1 The 2010 Harvest Moon comes to fruition just six hours after the Autumnal Equinox, not only adding extra oomph to an already powerful time of year, but also illuminating the present condition and current state of our affairs – personal, social, global and planetary. We are awakened to what is and what is not, what works for or against us, how we feel and how we deal. Taking place at the very first degree of Libra/Aries, this Full Moon/Equinox is beaming direct rays of light on our most important, significant and committed one-to-one relationships – specifically how we show up for others and how they show up for us – and asking us to take a good, long look at what we see. Aries is all about impulse, action and instinct while Libra is more about strategy, diplomacy and negotiation. Both are concerned with getting personal needs and desires fulfilled, it’s just a matter of style and preference as to how it’s accomplished.

HarvestSunset We are being tossed in to a room of revolving mirrors, where the reflections of self and other are constantly changing in size, shape and scope. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself playing the diplomat one day and the demanding child the next. Or perhaps you are simply attracted to change, something totally different and unusual. The bottom line is that we are opening new energetic gateways and revealing new options in our sharing and pairing. What inspired us once, no longer seems to. The world is upside and sideways, nothing makes sense and security is an illusion. The best we can do is to be true to our values and ourselves, treat others with respect and kindness, do the next right thing and take it one day at a time. This is a time to be healthily selfish, accept responsibility for the condition of our relationships and personal affairs, work on doing what we can to make this Earth a better place to live and breathe, and be totally present – at all times and in all ways – be here now! Redvine1We are embarking upon a fall season of great potential accomplishment, maturity and fruition. Equanimity, self-motivation and sweetness are allies. Good luck and may the beauty and bounty of Harvest be with you.
Peace, love and joy…

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19)

Autumn Equinox initiates the official season of sharing and pairing for the Ram. One-to-one relating takes priority as mornings cool and days blaze with color. Breathe deep and embrace the love and beauty. Inner change and inner peace are themes, and you are quick to understand that one depends on the other. Honesty and integrity are allies. Practice both.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
The glowing Harvest Moon illuminates issues of peace, tranquility and equanimity for the Bull. The quality of your life and your relationships depends upon the approach, attitude and manner in which you treat others. Attempts to control outcomes works against rather than for. Live and let go, the Universe provides clues and messages. Look and listen.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
8 oppositions and 15 squares, Autumn Equinox and the Harvest Moon conjunct the Super Galactic Center guarantee a week of awakening and awareness. Each day, exciting new truths and expansive options appear. It’s time to embrace the mission of your birth chart and live the life you are here to live. Surrender to the divinity of destiny by being true to you.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The Harvest Moon is a special lunation for Moonchildren and Autumn Equinox marks a zodiac month of personal, internal process and emotionally fueled regeneration. Feelings rule, as childhood memories and behavior patterns emerge amongst the changing leaves and morphing terrain. Inner beauty comes via inner peace. Embrace the day!

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
The Autumn Equinox and companion full Harvest Moon highlight the intense, ongoing cardinal T-square that’s been in orb since last summer’s powerful Leo new Moon. For Lions, this translates as more of the same: communicate, balance and temper behaviors as you practice conscious restraint and heartfelt loving-kindness. Listen to your angels and be cool.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
You pass the torch to that laughing, loving and sometimes lazy neighbor Libra kid on the block this week, and in so doing, you feel relief. Recent goals have demanded time and attention, dictated work and effort. Now that they’ve come to fruition, you can relax. Enjoy the blossoming, full-blown beauty of the Harvest Moon and know that you are blessed. Yes.
Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
Autumn Equinox marks the beginning of the Libra zodiac month and time of annual rebirth and renewal. As you approach the day you picked to incarnate on this earth plane, pay attention to spirit. Are you in touch with that eternal, ethereal essence that transcends the physical and material? Touch the Mother Earth, feel the magic and live the beauty.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
With both voluptuous Venus and mighty Mars now dancing so close in Scorpio, you may be feeling exquisitely in touch with both your masculine and feminine selves and sides. Desires for love, romance, action and attention are strong. Temper passion with acceptance and ride the ever-flowing river of life with both grace and gusto. Tap into spirit and relax.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
We have entered a new millennium and century, approaching the Galactic Center and marking time for 12.21.2010. Is it really Armageddon? Yes or no, stop or go? As the optimistic, enthusiastic Archer of the zodiac, point your arrow toward the bulls-eye of spirit. Practice spiritual consciousness and focus upon the numinous and divine. Embrace what comes.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Ongoing cardinal squares and oppositions involving Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto have taken their toll and continue to morph and transform the way you perceive and define reality. Judgmental, self-righteous, demanding behaviors have withered in the fire of divinity and you understand that radical, total acceptance is the key. Surrender.

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18)
Numinous Neptune joins force with chiropractic Chiron this week and opens doors of metaphysical, spiritual healing and enlightenment. Surrender to forces greater and more powerful than yourself. Resistance fuels discomfort and rigid, self-righteous behaviors do nothing to he
lp change the world. Be willing, cultivate humility and practice prayer.

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20)
We can never be too strong or too loving, and the Universe asks for both in this radical time of awakening. Personal and global change is running rampant, reality is transforming and values are in a spin. Center yourself in the here and now, touch the Mother Earth and embrace the magic of metamorphosis. Be an example that others can emulate. Simply do your best.
