Autumn officially begins today, September 23rd, which is also the autumn equinox. The equinox–the only time when both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres experience roughly equal amounts of daytime and nighttime–only happens twice a year, in March and September, when the sun crosses the earth’s equator.
The autumn equinox is a time of romantic reflection: Be that addressing issues in our relationships or finding ways to commit to someone. We are naturally more inclined to compromise by approaching things diplomatically.
The cooler weather also means more time spent at home cuddling up and connecting with others on a soulful level. With the sun in Libra, we’ll also become more relationship oriented and full of passion. And, with the onset of cuffing season, we will find comfort knowing that love is on our side this autumn.
You’re yearning for growth in your relationship, and are willing to try inventive activities to maximize on adventure. In the middle of the day, write down a joint romantic intention on a piece of paper with your significant other. Light the paper together (outside) with a match, and let it burn. Now, start manifesting your seasonal desire to add flavour to your partnership this autumn.
You might just have your own personal meet-cute if you head out with your friends during the autumn equinox, so keep your eyes open for potential romantic encounters. If you’re already romantically linked, your partner might try to spice things up by going out to an off-the-beaten-track event for date night–enjoy it.
Take a moment out of your busy schedule to hold space for romance. Make sure you reciprocate the tenderness and kindness that your significant other often shows you, in order to create equality in the relationship. Let your partner know that your heart beats faster around them. In return, you’ll receive big declarations of affection and adoration, which will strengthen the connection you share.
Fairytales can come true and they will happen to you if you let go of your fears and lean into your feelings. You can have the happily-ever-after that you want, but stop hiding your affections and own your innermost sentiments. Step away from fear of commitment and the protective shell you wear as armor to avoid being hurt, and let love in.
The moment has come for you to have a heart-to-heart with your crush to clear up the miscommunication that has been occurring in your relationship. Opening up might be easier for you than your partner, which is all the more reason for you to set the tone by creating a nonjudgmental and calm space for them. Listen with a present mind before reacting. You’ll receive the same treatment from them.
You’ve been debating the best path to take in your situation-ship–and it’s been tough on your heart. Instead of overthinking, don’t be afraid to ask the tough questions to better understand how they feel about you. Chances are you’ll hear positive news, but only if you speak up and put your cards on the table.
The mood you’re in and the day’s cosmic vibe will dictate whether you can deal with alpha or beta energy in relationships. The autumn equinox and your solar return allows you to restore balance between these extremes. As a result, you’ll become the type of person you want to be when it comes to partnerships–you can give your significant other the right kind of love and start anew with them.
Seeing your partner thrive at this moment in time will warm your heart. You’ll want to celebrate their wins and successes by making sure they’re aware of how incredibly special they are to you. This will also serve as a chance to pay homage to your companion, since they usually put you on a pedestal. Now that you’re both standing on equal footing, you can cultivate an excellent foundation filled with mutual respect and love.
You’re in a happy place–and a thriving relationship – so have started to play matchmaker with two friends so that they can experience the same level of joy as you do in your love life. Basically, you’re taking a page out of Jane Austen’s Emma. However, your romantic scheming might make your friends feel pressured to connect, which is why it’s best to plan a casual, low-key meet-up for them.
As the CEO and workaholic of the astrological signs, your career is always going to get in the way of your personal life. Therefore, it’s important to set time aside for those you care about. This will set a precedent that allows you to prioritize relationships, friendships and family. All you have to do is make the effort to show that you’re willing to grow, and give energy to the most important people in your life.
You’re longing to fly free (with your partner) from the daily obligations and constraints of mundane life. You might want to consider taking a long drive out of town to try out a cute restaurant, or take a staycation. Having an adventure with your partner — no matter how big or small it is — will allow you the opportunity to create fun memories and celebrate the good times.
You believe that a good partner should intuitively know what their lover wants at all times because that’s how you go about relationships. As a result, you rarely advocate for your own needs when conversing with your significant other. The autumn equinox gives you the confidence to speak up and let your feelings be known, which will bring you closer together and begin a different dynamic–one that could lead to new depths in your relationship.
