New Moon/Equinox Update 9-19 & 9-22-17

Print this page

Dear Friends,

New Moon is Tuesday, September 19 at 11:30 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).

For many of you the new moon falls on September 20. Focus on what is new, what needs to be new and how you can support what is new. Sometimes the clarity comes from recognizing what is old. This is a great day to clean your house, your fridge, your closet, your garage, your car, your files, and to purge anything you are done with. The more clearing you can do before the Equinox, the better advantage you can take of the change of season to reflect your own change. Take some time as well to reset, refine and adjust your intentions to reflect the completions of this time frame.

The Equinox is on Friday, September 22 at 2:02 PM Mountain Daylight Time. This is a marker for change. The death of one season and the birth of another. We always recommend honoring any change of season through a ritual or ceremony of some kind. Bring in all the elements of fire, water, earth and air to support you. This equinox is not necessarily a communal time but it can be. If you are with community it would also be good to take a little time alone to do a personal prayer or practice. It is a powerful time and it can really give extra fuel to what you are changing in your life.

Blessings, Lena


Pat Liles, our astrologer, is out of the country right now so we do not have a specific New Moon astrological forecast here. However, she did discuss this time in her last Moon Update here.
