It’s that time of year again! The temperatures are dropping, Halloween products are on the shelves and your favorite coffee shop is already marketing its pumpkin spice latte. However, those who follow the study of astrology warn that there is more changing during this time than meets the eye!
The Fall Equinox is the time of year in which all our hard work begins to pay off. It coincides with the harvest when farmers have the opportunity to reap the fruits of their labors. The crops that they have planted and nurtured throughout the year are now ready to be harvested, providing the food and income that they require.
As we leave summer behind us, the days become shorter and the nights longer. This causes a shift in astrological energy as we spend more time feeling the impact of the moon on our lives and less time under the rule of the sun. Our emotions are heightened, pushing us towards a time of self-reflection and consideration. During this time, you will look back on the decisions that you have made, specifically those over the course of the previous year. This is also a time to re-evaluate the path you are currently on, keeping your eyes on your goals and dreams for the future.
While some zodiac signs can look forward to an exciting and joy-filled Fall Equinox, this, unfortunately, isn’t true for everyone.
These 3 zodiac signs are going to have a rough Fall Equinox:
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
It’s not that you dislike the Autumn season, however, the energy that you are about to experience is the opposite of everything you know to be comfortable. The good news is that this is going to be a great time for personal growth and self-discovery. The challenge is that you’re going to have to step well outside of your comfort zone in order to make it happen. It’s going to feel odd or uncomfortable at first, but if you’re willing to stick it out and put the hard work into it, you will benefit greatly in the long run!
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
This time of self-reflection is going to force you to confront some inner secrets that you swept under the rug, specifically those relating to your responsibilities and limitations. With Saturn and Mercury working in alliance in your chart during this time, you are going to feel the hard hand of karma reigning down upon you. How can you make the most of this time? Roll up your sleeves and get down to work, proving that you truly deserve all the great things that life has given you up to this point.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
During the Autumn Equinox, you will be called to look deeply into your emotional and spiritual sense of self. To say this is going to be slightly uncomfortable is a complete understatement. Each of us possesses a darker side to our selves or a ‘shadow self’. This refers to the personality traits and characteristics that we keep hidden from the world, our quirks, flaws, and weaknesses. While addressing this side of yourself head-on is going to be difficult and potentially painful, overcoming your weaknesses will make you a stronger person than ever.
