The Fall Equinox Could Affect Your Mood In More Ways Than One

Originally Published: 

As of September 22, 2020, it's time to say goodbye to summer. At the moment of the autumn equinox, our universe undergoes a major shift in which the day reaches a point of equal power with the night. Between the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year, and the winter solstice, which is the longest night, autumn offers a steady transition into darkness. During fall, we harvest the fruits of our labor and prepare for a descent into the cold winter. Such a dramatic change inevitably begs the question of whether the autumn equinox will affect your mood.

While the transformation will reach you down to your deepest core, there are so many reasons while you might just love every minute of it. For one thing, the autumn equinox is also the moment when the sun enters Libra. You've been absorbing Virgo season's power of critical thinking, tight focus, and sharp eye for details all throughout the last few weeks of summer, and now, the cosmos are about to shake things up. This cardinal air sign feels completely different than anything you've experienced in months, so if you're aching for an exciting change, the autumn equinox most certainly contains it. Even if you're resisting it with all your might, beauty is on the way.
