On the day of our Fall Equinox, in the Northern Hemisphere, September 23, our Sun moved from Earthly Virgo to Airy Libra, the astrological sign signified by the balancing of scales. With our Sun in Libra, ruled by the planet Venus, we shift our focus to creating balance in our relationships and our need for healthy connection to self and others. When we think of Venus, may we be reminded of Love, Beauty and Harmony, expanding our hearts to explore deeper levels of self-love, romantic love and divine love.
With our Sun in Libra, treatment strategies throughout the month include balancing and grounding! Think Venus/Mars 5th for balancing the Chakras, appropriate Extraordinary Vessels, the Three Treasures as well as the Juato’s and Bailio.
There are several important Astrological alignments worth noting for this Libra Cycle of 2019, commencing with the New Moon in Libra September 28, a SuperMoon. Most significantly, on October 2, Pluto our outer planet of transformation and evolution, turns direct in Capricorn. This may signify another opportunity of moving forwards in our evolutionary consciousness of humanity.
What is your soul calling for at this time? On October 6, Mercury opposes its higher octave of Uranus, asking us to tune in and synthesize. Ending with a grand finale of the Full Moon in Aires/Libra and the Sun in Libra Squaring Pluto in Capricorn, occurring on the same day of October 13.
When an outer planet stations direct, the forward motion can be felt strongly on Earth in our microcosm, and there is usually great opportunity for humanity to make significant breakthroughs in consciousness. With Pluto stationing direct, humanity may experience this death/rebirth cycle with certain systems continuing to dissolve so healthier change can manifest. Take advantage of this forward momentum to follow your heart and soul. Pluto turns retrograde again January 23, 2020 and while retrograde, this can be a time of deep soul searching and introspection.
A treatment strategy to consider with Pluto stationing direct on October 2 and throughout it’s direct trajectory may be Cosmic Tuning, descending from the head with Pluto on Du 23, Upper Star, Venus/Mars on ST 25, Middle Star, Celestial Pivot, and Ohm Unison on SP 8, Lower Star and grounding with Ohm at Kid 1 and any other earth points appropriate. Consider using the Chong Mai with combinations of Pluto/Venus 6th, Chiron/Venus 5th and Nibiru/Venus 4th and Nibiru/Sun 5th to help support the new story at the blood root.
With Mercury opposing Uranus on October 6th, consider opening the throat chakra and the 4 Gates with Mercury/Uranus 5th, for a powerful movement of energies. They say a change will do you good! Also consider Mercury/Uranus 5th with BL 10 and BL 60 to assist with spiritual connection. This combo is excellent for the Window’s of the Sky Points as well as Du 16, Yin Tang and Du 20 for opening up to our intuition and psychic awareness.
The following day, on October 7th, our Libra Sun squares Saturn in Capricorn, asking us for a restructuring from the perspective of the heart. Using combinations of Venus and Saturn together to help strengthen relationships that are all the balanced aspects of Venus. This is a great combination on the Juatos for activating our kidney yang stored in the vertebrae. Good on the Balio for focusing on balancing all the 8 extras. Consider this combination on the front heart, Ren 17, Heart Center, and the back heart, Du 11, Spirit Pathway, to calm the spirit and open the heart to the Divine Teacher. Consider Venus/Saturn 5th on GB 39, Hanging Bell, to help strengthen the gallbladder to make harmonizing decisions from the creative aspect of Venus.
In 5 Element Theory, Fall represents the element of Metal, associated with the organs of LU and LI which involve the process purification and elimination.
Treatment strategies for transitioning through the season of Fall and for the Aires/Libra Full Moon on October 13, include opening LIV 14, Cycle Gate and balancing with LUN 1, Middle Palace. Apply the Full Moon fork on LIV 14 and Mars on LUN 1. Follow with Zodiac/Sun 1 5th to release excess liver stagnation and strengthen the lung for initiating a fresh lung cycle. Consider strengthening ST 36, Leg Three Miles and SP 6, Three Yin Intersection, during this season as well with Earth Day 5th and Solar 7th.
On a physical level, look for mental imbalances, sinus issues, allergies and lung sensitivities. On an emotional level this is a time to look for issues where we feel the need to be right, or to be included, as well as grief that is unresolved or activated. This can be grief on a collective level as we witness unprecedented change on our planet. It is truly a time to come from the heart and not to be in the illusion of separateness or fear. Consider treating LUN 9, Supreme Abyss, the Source Point of the Lung Channel or LUN 3, Palace of Heaven to help support the lungs resolve grief.
Consider Mercury/Full Moon 6th for bringing issues forward and nourishing at the source point and Zodiac/Full Moon 3rd on LUN 3 for releasing long standing grief.
Consider using LI 18, FU TU, Window to the Sky Point during the season of Metal.
In Debra Kaatz’s “Characters of Wisdom”, She describes LI 18 – A Supported Rushing Forward; “When we are willing to let go of what is no longer useful, we can see how it keeps us from seeing and enjoying our lives. When we let go we can really look inside ourselves and find the qualities and gifts that are there. When the rubbish has been cleared and there is balance and harmony in our life then this chimney to the sky point can open us to fresh insights. We can see the sacredness in the world.
Finally, the element of Metal has long been associated with alchemy and this is a time of unity consciousness and the transformational process of becoming gold.
A treatment strategy to consider for this season of Metal is the Cosmic Capstone with Mercury/ Nibiru 3rd for integrating the alchemical and transformational process of becoming gold and owning our God/Goddess selves. Follow with Sedna/Nibiru 3rd and Sedna/Venus 6th, for integrating and opening to unity consciousness.
For the October 13 Libra Sun squaring Pluto in Capricorn, consider Cosmic Capstone with Pluto/Venus 5th for integrating the transformational aspects the Pluto may assist us with evolving our heart consciousness at this time. Follow with Sedna/Venus 7th, to open the heart to unconditional love and unity consciousness. Apply these two intervals with the Yin Wei Mai as well.
May these treatment strategies, during this Astrological cycle of Libra allow us to continue our precious walk on Planet Earth birthing the World we are choosing to co-create through faith, joy, harmony, peace, LOVE & GRATITUDE and Acutonics! Lest we not forget that every day is an opportunity to stay grounded, be in the present moment, shine our light from the inside out, to share our Numinous during these unprecedented times of change for ourselves, our humanity, and our cosmos.
