Whoa, it's THE EQUINOX -- and it's just as intense as it sounds

Hey, it's finally here: the autumnal equinox. I know what you're probably thinking: "Dude, it's just the first day of Fall." Oh but it's so much more, babes. I want you to get the most out of this time.

The super-special deal with solstices and equinoxes (equinoxi??) is that these mark the beginnings of the earthly calendar version of the elliptic in our own charts. In real-bitch terms: the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) that usher forth new seasons are at their most powerful and most energetic right now. In your tarot work, think Aces. These are seeds, and with that nifty new Virgo moon still pulling our strings two days later, I want you to consider that everything could change in an amazing way, even if right now it seems like the world is falling apart and everything sucks.

The Equinox is a time to push back against the boundaries of time and space. This is what in folklore is referred to as a "liminal" space. A time where the laws of nature are temporarily more like…suggestions. The magic of this moment is that we are temporarily standing atop the fulcrum that the seasons hinge on, and there's tremendous manifesting power there. You might encounter issues with electricity, unexpected events, a feeling that something is not right or is about to happen. Your dreams might get a lil' weird too.

It's ok though, breathe. Listen to your body and your heart. This is a safe space where we temporarily enter another dimension between summer and fall. It's ok if you feel a little out of sorts for the next few days. Or if you're vibing more like Alice in Wonderland than normal. I encourage you to explore the limits of what you can manifest and clear from your life in this special gateway between the subconscious and conscious.

In this space betwixt and between,

I invite the force of powers unseen.

Lead me down the path that's best

protect me on my holy quest.
