The Sun entering Libra September 22, 2021 – Bringing Balance, Harmony, and a Focus on Relationships
The balanced, even-tempered, and harmonious Libra energy is welcomed after the full moon in Pisces on September 20, 2021.
This is a beautiful transition from the release and deep emotion of the full moon in Pisces. Now that we have released the emotional baggage, Libra energy has us wondering where we can bring balance into our lives.
Cardinal signs are associated with action, leadership, and initiation. The energy pattern associated with the cardinal signs is the initiation of energy in a definite direction. Air signs are associated with thought and abstract ideas. They are also associated with the mind’s sensations and mental interaction, especially in interpersonal interactions.
Fair, just, diplomatic and relationship oriented, Libra seeks balance. Its ruling planet Venus focuses our attention on love, beauty, leisure, and relationships.
The positive expression of Libra is:
· Relationship oriented
· Even tempered
· Team oriented
· Seeks balance and harmony
The lower expression of Libra is:
· Passive aggressive
· Puts relationships above their own needs

Other Important Aspects September 22, 2021 - Mercury Square Pluto
When a planet is “square” with another planet, they are 90 degrees away from each other. Squares represent tension and where there may be resistance. This tension can be used to take positive action.
While the energy of Libra, the Autumnal Equinox and the number 22 support balance and harmony, Mercury square Pluto may make you want to force your point of view on others.
You can turn this energy inward for introspection. When used this way, this transit can help you discover pieces of yourself that were hidden below your consciousness. These insights can be powerful and help bring changes to your life.
This energy supports any pursuit or study that will help you understand human consciousness on a deeper level such as psychology, yoga, human design, and astrology.
