Let’s take a more in depth look at the overall energies, attributes, and themes you can expect for the Fall Equinox, along with the major planetary aspects that the Sun and Moon will be making this day:

With the Sun in Libra, you will be motivated for personal, social, and relationship harmony.  You will prefer the company of others to solitude and enjoy social occasions and outings.  You will possess an authentic and refined sense, with an appreciation of the finer things in life and the arts. Be careful, however, not to be too dependent on others or overly needy in relationships right now.

The Sabian Symbols

The Sabian Symbols are a set of 360 mystical messages (that make up an image also), that are associated with each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac. They have also often been referred to as an Astrological oracle.  They were channeled by a clairvoyant in 1925 from the mystical Sabian brotherhood source.  


The Sun’s Sabian Symbol for Libra today gives the following vision/message/meaning for the overall collective:

A child with a butterfly net chases a white butterfly, which is suddenly transfixed by a beam of light.


Chasing after a beautiful dream; searching for the ideal within the manifest (disappointed in love; want more than is offered); flitting from one romance to another, vs. creating stability in a relationship by adapting to one's partner's true nature; holding to crystallized memories of perfect moments vs. remaining open to life's changeable, unpredictable events; picking one's way carefully through the obstacles on one's path vs. thrashing about in an effort to free oneself from one's physical or psychological handicaps; seeking spiritual illumination; being open to spiritual teachings found in dreams, visions, or curious events, vs. entertaining illusory beliefs based on what one wants to be true; exploring one's fantasies vs. living in a dreamworld.


Pluto will form a Trine with the Sun


This aspect makes you very motivated by the desire for power, which you can harness at will and put to good use.

Right now, it will be easy to get your own way through willpower and believing in yourself. 


The Sun will form an Opposition with Neptune

The energy from this aspect will have you feeling sensitive and impressionable. Be careful, because you may be easily swayed by others and be proned to seducing influences and stimulants.

Moon in Capricorn


With the Moon in Capricorn, even though you will still be feeling things deeply, you may experience some difficulty expressing your innermost feelings. Rather than freely showing your emotions, you may choose to keep them under control.  Responsibilities within your family may be important to you now. Other people are inclined to look to you for support, as you have an inner strength and ability to maintain a cool head under pressure now. This energy will make you feel ambitious for success and professional advancement.


The Moon will form a Trine with Mercury
