Autumn Equinox: Here Is How It Will Affect Your Star Sign, According to an Astrologer

Seeing a 500% surge in searches over the past months, 23rd  September heralds the arrival of the Autumn Equinox. This solar event marks the end of summer and the start of Libra season and draws us close to the Harvest Moon on the 29th, along with heightened chances of witnessing the Northern lights.

In this time of equilibrium between darkness and light, can we, as individuals, seamlessly incorporate both into our daily lives? And how exactly will the Autumn Equinox impact each zodiac sign?

To find out, Psychic Chat Provider psychic world worked with celebrity psychic and astrologer Inbaal Honigman, to uncover what the major shifts in the seasons and stars mean for each star sign.

What does the autumn equinox mean for your star sign?

Aries (21st March – 19th April)

For Aries, the equilibrium of the equinox may not hold great allure, as they lean towards extremes rather than stability. But do make an effort as the Autumn Equinox ushers in Libra season (September 23rd – October 22nd), with the whole month dedicated to finding balance. With every active day, combine a calm day. This may be a challenge since Libra is your polar opposite on the zodiac wheel, but it’s needed for a steady mind this season.

Taurus (20th April – 20th May)

Autumn Equinox is a balanced and elegant time of year, and this speaks right to the Taureans’ souls as they appreciate peace and equilibrium. A piece of advice for the equinox is to step out of your comfort zone,  seize the opportunity presented by the Harvest Moon on the 29th, and make plans for new and unconventional experiences.

Gemini (21st May – 20th June)

Summer is their season, as Geminis relish a party or two and the company of others. The approaching autumn may bring a sense of solitude, which Geminis hate. All the sensible balance of the Autumn Equinox is boring to most, so the twin sign should do their best to reconnect with their inner child and all the things they love about Autumn. Consider booking a trip to view the Northern Lights or tuning in to a Northern Lights broadcast on your phone to keep things fun and original.

Cancer (21st June – 22nd July)

The equinox is a solar phenomenon marking the perfect balance between daylight and darkness. This might not resonate as strongly with Cancers, lunar creatures ruled by the moon. Hence, they are more likely to feel the impact of the Harvest Moon – a time of endings and resource gathering – on the 29th rather than the autumn equinox, which signifies balance. Emotional Cancers can also be comforted by their favourite autumnal scents, movies and time with their loved ones this season.

Leo (23rd July – 22nd August)

Leo’s planetary ruler is the Sun, so celestial shifts such as solstices and equinoxes will be impactful. The call to bid farewell to the joys of summer behind and embrace the muted tones of autumn is strong, though they can’t help but miss the sunny days. Leos should expect a powerful boost this season as the energetic shift will tap into their curiosity and passion.

Virgo (23rd August – 22nd September)

The end of Virgo season is when the fall equinox hits – isn’t it ironic? Under the influence of Virgo, society as a whole has been organised and neat, shedding unnecessary baggage and investing in self-improvement, much like the sign itself. And when the Equinox asks everyone – are you sure you’re done? Is everything in place? Virgos can confidently answer ‘yes’.

Libra (23rd September – 22nd October)

As Libra season approaches, get ready to feel right at home! No one will enjoy this cosy season more than the Libra, with everything pumpkin spice upon us, and the fall equinox signals this shift. No shaming of those who want to pull their pyjamas on after work. Peaceful moments as the leaves fall are the key to Libra’s happiness.

Scorpio (23rd October – 21st November)

Secrets are a Scorpio’s safety net. Not big secrets like having two wives, but little secrets like ‘yeah, I loved Dangerous Liaisons’ or ‘I don’t know my way around Birmingham’. With the arrival of the Autumn Equinox, Scorpios leave summer behind and find comfort in the shadows of winter. It will be a refreshing time.

Sagittarius (22nd November – 21st December)

The end of summer hits Sagittarius hard because they love travelling so much. The Equinox calls for calm and balance, although that is not their vibe as they seek winter sun destinations. Sagittarius should allow themself to be still for a few days, put their phones and passports away and honour the fall season with a few deep breaths.

Capricorn (22nd December – 19th January)

Capricorn is a business-minded sign who understands that change is a constant, cyclical aspect of life. And so when they enact change, they seize the opportunity. The Autumn Equinox is a reminder that what once worked may no longer be effective, signalling the need to adjust your routine.

Aquarius  (20th January – 18th February)

With their humanitarian nature, Aquarians are always introspective. This Equinox will encourage this idealistic sign to visit new places and learn new things. They also enjoy being helpful but will not be conspicuous about it. They like to be well-read but hate a snob or a show-off. So, the equinox is right up their alley! Business as usual.

Pisces (19th February – 20th March)

As a romantic at heart, Pisces hold high expectations for themselves. Equinox’s call for balance and self-value is a message Pisces must hear. The increased likelihood of witnessing the Northern Lights adds an extra touch of enchantment to this autumn season for Pisces.

It is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to contemplate summer’s drama and heat in contrast to winter’s subtle cool.  Inbaal Honigman further guided embracing the Autumn Equinox: “As you get ready for the equinox, take a few moments to jot down the best and worst of your summer and your biggest hopes and fears for winter. Light a candle to banish the worries and invite positivity.”
