The Autumn Equinox marks a true change of seasons. For many, the start of fall on September 21rd is viewed as a time of harvest and, hopefully, a change in the seemingly ongoing drama that marks the daily news on the political, national, financial and world fronts. Whether it is unrest in North Africa, our own economic situation, or the seemingly unending barrage of natural disasters and challenges, the desire to put it all behind us as the season’s change is almost overwhelming.
Yes, this is the time of the harvest, both in the karmic sense, as well as, the traditional meaning. The stars, too, seem to reflect this “harvesting” of what we have sown. Just three days after the Equinox, a powerful stellium promises to bring some dramatic “seasonal shifts” to this planet and its inhabitants.
A stellium is an astrological term to describe a multiple conjunction of at least four planets in one sign or house. Astrologers differ on whether it is the sign or house which should dictate whether a stellium is present, however, it is the sign which controls since a sign can span two houses.
The effect of the Super Moon earlier this year is still be felt in a variety of ways around the globe. With that in mind, one must certainly pay attention to the upcoming lunar event that will occur in just a couple of weeks. Many writers have noted that Super Moons do seem to have an impact on earthquakes given the increased seismic activity that can occur during that period, it would seem that this may be a prelude to a significantly more extreme events, weather included.
Stelliums act like a cosmic battery overcharging the impact of the planets involved, as well as, the signs and the houses. Specifically, the energies involved become obsessive. Here, the lunar impact on emotions magnified by Venus collides and confounds with the Mercury on communications of all types. Much as the Sun can magnify energy and heat when shown through a magnifying glass, so too does the proximity of Old Sol to these other planets add to their intertwined energies.
Of particular concern is that this astrological configuration overlaps the 12th and the 1st houses. The 12th house is concerned with large public institutions (think governmental bodies) and hidden matters or agendas. What we see may not be what we are going to get, especially in the financial realm. This is traditionally the house of self-undoing, making those decisions or taking actions which ultimately will work against the desired outcome. Given the toxic environment on political fronts, both here and abroad, expect some abrupt over-reaction that could lead to more unrest or worse. A financial crisis could come shooting in from the proverbial “left field” that could leave both leaders and the public scrambling.
Libra, of course, is represented by the Scales and symbolizes the karmic balance that is constantly in flux. The stellium’s effect is going to through this “balance’ severely out of whack. We may well get that “Aha!!” moment, but at a high price and, possibly, too late to avoid the consequences. This does not mean that everything ends, rather, that the proverbial “Humpty Dumpty” has gone to omelet land and that we are left with picking up the pieces.
Pluto retrograde has just left Capricorn and this transits denoted a time of transformation and ending those systems (and beliefs) whose time has past. Structures (man-made, institutional, financial and political) that do not support growth have begun to crumble to be replaced by the new forms. This background of astrological activity is a major reason why the Equinox and the stellium could well mark a true change of seasons on many levels and a karmic “harvest” of unique and unexpected proportions.
It should be kept in mind that the Equinox, whether Spring or Fall can bring in more than just a seasonal change. It is a marker for things to come, both good and not so good. Either way, it presents challenges that are worth noting.
