Your Horoscope for the Fall EquinoxGetty/Margie Rischiotto

Welcome to autumn! This year, the fall equinox occurs on September 23 in the Northern Hemisphere as the Sun moves into Libra and Libra season begins. Scientifically, the Equinox happens when the Sun crosses the equator twice a year. It brings the shift of seasons to the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. On the fall equinox, we experience an equal amount of day and nighttime hours. Today is a day to mark how the universe is changing and transforming, and it coincides with the pagan holiday of Mabon.

The cosmic energetic forces at play today are pushing us to transcend with the seasonal changes. As Elena Nicolaou of Kefi Tarot says, “The seasons our lives go in cycles. Seasonal changes are an opportunity to reflect. As the seasons change, think about the changes in your life." She explains, "The fall equinox marks the start of a transition between the blooming of summer to the hibernation of winter. It’s a time to be grateful for what you have acquired and what you have in your life and where you landed.” Today, embrace the magic that fall brings.
