This upcoming Equinox will teach all of us a valuable lesson, and some of us will be well-rewarded for our efforts.
The September equinox will arrive on September 23, 2019. The September Equinox is also our halfway mark through the astrological year and our signpost that the calendar year is slowly coming to an end.
During the equinox, days and nights will be approximately equal in length. For those in the Northern Hemisphere, the sun is rising later now, and nightfall comes sooner. Meanwhile, south of the equator, spring is about to begin.
For some of us, we may feel called to roll up our sleeves and get to work on our goals. For others, we may feel called to relax and to focus on our health and well-being.
What can your zodiac sign expect from this powerful September Equinox?
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You may start to feel like all the energy you’re used to spending on yourself is suddenly seeping out elsewhere, putting a spotlight on your relationships. “Partnerships are a focus now,” explains Stardust. “Beware of who you want in and out of your life.” Shifting your focus is great, but be sure it’s going toward healthy moves.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
A new season is always reason enough to start something new, and this is no exception. “You’re implementing a new daily routine into your life,” says Stardust. “Start slow.” There’s no need to rush — seeds planted now will grow strongest with attention, love, commitment, and most importantly, time.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
For various reasons, you’ve been romantically off the market, but today feels different all of a sudden, “It’s time to get your flirt on and put yourself out there romantically,” says Stardust. Even if you’re not ready for a new relationship, it’s time to spice things up — and this applies whether you’re single or linked up!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
The sun always shines a little differently after an equinox, and the light within you feels different, too. “Your beliefs are shifting now,” explains Stardust. “Embrace change and transformation.” You’re an ever-evolving being with endless iterations of you — allow yourself to bloom.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
It’s easy to look around and judge the people around you, but work to keep these thoughts — however accurate they may seem — to yourself for now. “Try not to gossip too much this week, as it may come back to haunt you,” warns Stardust. Protect your reputation and let your sunshiney positivity shine through today.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
The sun has just shifted out of your sign, and maybe you partied a little too hardy. With the equinox bringing some major energy shifts, it’s time to do what you do best: Get organized. “Commit to a new money making plan in order to yield a profit,” advises Stardust. You’ll be in tip-top shape again in no time,
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Because Libra season begins the same day as the fall equinox, it’s no surprise that this sign will feel its effects. The good news is that most of the vibes will be positive. “On Sept. 23, the sun sails into your sign for a month, waking you up and restoring your joie de vivre,” the AstroTwins, Ophira and Tali Edu, noted in their monthly horoscope on AstroStyle. “Much of that mental fog will clear up, and you’ll be ready to act decisively.” As any Libra knows, being able to act decisively is rare. Enjoy it will it lasts!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Scorpio, the 2019 fall equinox will encourage you to consider that maybe you’ve stayed at the proverbial party too long and it’s high time to make some changes. “Think about the attachments you have — to things, people, and routines — and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break,” Cafe Astrology explained. “Situations that have naturally outgrown their usefulness in your life can now be put behind you. Endings of natural cycles may be part of the picture at this time of year.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Sagittarius, the 2019 fall equinox is a very special time for you. According to Horoscope.com, Jupiter and Neptune are conspiring to offer you a magical, mystical, cosmic homecoming. Celebrate! “The sun joins Venus and Mercury in Libra on the 23rd, bringing a flurry of social activity. You’re connecting with friends and other people who can help you manifest your dreams.”
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
There’s a lot to look forward to as you embark on the final fourth of the year, and your career sector is lighting up. “A new project at work can yield excitement in the future,” says Stardust. Even if you’re not pumped off the bat, know that this project will open doors for the future.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
The seasonal shift has got you feeling a little existential, but hey, what else is new? “Take a moment out of your day to meditate and be one with the universe,” advises Stardust. Centering yourself and getting in touch with your mental powers is the ideal way to step into a new season.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
It’s time for you to shine, and to finally conquer any 2019 goals that have fallen to the wayside. “It’s time to invest in taking back your personal power,” says Stardust. If you feel you’ve sold yourself short over the past months, this is the season to hit reverse and get on the path you should be on.
