Happy Autumn Equinox! We survived Mercury Retrograde and the sun is entering Libra. Libra is the sign of balance. Since day and night are now balanced with day and night being equal, the sign of balance is truly energized. This is a time to enjoy the fruits of your hard work over the summer and enjoy reaping what you sowed.
