We’re poised between the seasons. Earth’s equator hovers closest to the Sun, northern and southern hemispheres get equal amounts of Sunshine as the Sun enters Libra early this Saturday morning.

The autumnal equinox brings a moment of balance, it can open doorways and brings a time of flow as the Sun steps from Virgo, into Libra. Some work that has been clogged or in a holding pattern for months now rolls forward. Venus and Mercury, which were retrograde much of this summer, are now both direct; by the beginning of next week, they will both will be out of the shadow, past the point where they first turned retrograde, and life’s momentum picks up. This week we will still be clearing the misunderstandings, delays, misconceptions, wrong orders, hidden problems, but most of those thin out as the week goes by.

There’s lots of work to be done but our social milieu may be most important this week as Venus in Leo trines Mars in Libra under that Libra Sun. We could be a little too restless to stay locked in our office, but these sociable planets can help make new friends in college and school, help us see potential in a new relationship or add sparks to an old one. They add panache to the search for social justice. Stay in the moment and nurture those sparks rather than douse them with expectations and put the fire out.

Over the weekend a Capricorn Moon can bring us diligence and function, we can aspire to get things done just but let’s be cooperative rather than controlling. The Sun enters Libra early Saturday morning, Venus in Leo trines Chiron and can offer healing moments, moments to let go of some plan or anger that is no longer appropriate and share affection or cooperation in a way that just encourages our life force. Be sociable, be friendly, and be efficient.

By Sunday evening the Moon enters collaborative Aquarius and trines the Sun, and even though the Sun quincunx Saturn and can make us feel torn between our work and our life. On Monday, Mercury trines Jupiter in earth signs and practical words flow, a great day to sign contracts, to put some nuts and bolts in place, or make an overture. We may need to talk out some recent dilemma or deal with the fallout of this summer’s snafus, but we could see the light at the end of that tunnel.
