Summer is now in the rearview mirror (and, thank goodness, it brought Venus and Mercury retrograde with it).
While the days will be shorter and physically darker in the coming months, your fall equinox 2023 horoscope will center on a more peaceful mindset than you’ve experienced in recent months. Because the first day of autumn coincides with the beginning of the partner- and pleasure-oriented Libra season, this is the time of year to prioritize connections and reconnections. So, if the Virgo season stressed you out, the beginning of a new season promises to bring you back into balance.
Libra energy, as a cardinal sign, is in charge of initiating endeavors involving socialization, creative collaborations, and the formation of new relationships. It’s the ideal time to interact with others, especially now that Venus, the ruler of this sign, is finally direct. However, because this season is all about collaborating with others, your independent pursuits may take a back seat. This is where those Libra scales will come in handy, because maintaining a healthy balance between prioritizing others and prioritizing yourself will be critical.
When Is the 2023 Fall Equinox?
This year’s fall season will begin on September 23 at 2:50 a.m. ET or 8:50 a.m. CET. The fall equinox marks the time of year when the days and nights have the same amount of daylight, signaling the beginning of the days gradually becoming shorter as we approach the colder months.
This also marks the sun’s entry into Libra, which means that for the next month, every zodiac sign will prioritize enjoyment, artistry, and romantic connection. However, because Libra is considered the sun’s fall sign, where the sun loses dignity, you may become overly concerned with being liked or accepted by others. During this season, there is a tendency to avoid conflict or confrontation, which may prompt you to go out of your way to keep the peace. While this period is advantageous for smoothing things over in relationships, remember not to sacrifice your authenticity in order to keep other people happy.
Here’s how the 2023 fall equinox will affect each zodiac sign:
Aries (March 21-April 19)
As the sun moves into your seventh house of romantic partnerships during the autumn equinox, you’ll be fully invested in your relationships. This season encourages you to prioritize interdependence, which may be contrary to your natural tendencies. Although you may not be as preoccupied with your solo projects at this time, it is a good time to deepen your relationships with others. Aries, you are free to spend your time socializing right now. It’ll be nice to step away from your independent endeavors.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
As the autumn equinox approaches, you’ll be looking for more balance in your daily routines and habitual activities. As a fellow Venusian, I believe that harmony is everything, and that this season is the best time to prioritize pleasant rituals. You may also feel compelled to prioritize your health and overall well-being in a way that both satisfies and sustains you, making now an excellent time to start a new self-care routine.
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Gemini, the autumn equinox is an extremely creative time for you. This month, as the sun enters your fifth house, your desire for pleasure, satisfaction, and enjoyment will be highlighted. It’s an excellent time to engage in activities that make you happy. Whether it’s a new romantic interest or a fun new hobby, you’ll be having a good time this month.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
The sun will enter your fourth house on September 23, encouraging you to beautify your home and private life. During the autumn equinox, you’ll be inclined to indulge in domestic pleasures and nurture the connections you share behind closed doors. Feel free to retreat into your shell for the time being; you won’t be interested in venturing out much this month.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
The sun, your chart’s ruler, will enter Libra this month, illuminating your desire for connection through communication, shared ideas, and studying topics that stimulate your mind. This month, you’ll be actively absorbing more information from your surroundings and participating in stimulating and productive conversations. This month, Leo, you won’t have to travel far to learn new things.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
As the autumn equinox approaches, your primary concern will be your money, possessions, and resources. You may be more concerned with how to make more money or capitalize on the natural gifts and talents you’ve been given. This month, Virgo, you may be more inclined to treat yourself, so keep an eye on your spending — Libra energy tends to increase the desire to splurge.
Libra (September 22-October 23)
It’s your season, Libra, so you’ll be feeling your best. As the sun passes through your first house, you’ll feel a surge of confidence and find yourself asserting yourself more than usual. It’s an excellent time to take risks and put yourself out there, particularly when it comes to making new connections. Socializing has always come naturally to you, but as the autumn equinox approaches, you’ll attract attention simply by being yourself.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio, you’ll be retreating into your shell this month as the fall equinox occurs. While you are naturally reserved, Libra season is a time of increased withdrawal and introspection, which may make you feel even more antisocial than usual. Don’t worry, the time you’ll spend getting to know yourself better will pay off, especially when your season arrives.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
The sun will enter your 11th house of friends and social groups on September 23, illuminating your desire for community and collective support. This month, you may find yourself participating in more group outings or projects that encourage collaboration and cooperation. Sagittarius, whether you’re joining forces with an organization or spending more time in a group setting, you’ll be doing a lot of socializing this fall.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
As the sun moves through your 10th house this month, you’ll be concentrating on your career and professional endeavors. This is an excellent opportunity to highlight any accomplishments or work you are particularly proud of. They’re bound to be well received now, Capricorn, so don’t be shy — you deserve some recognition for all of your accomplishments.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
As the fall equinox approaches, Aquarius, you’ll be feeling particularly daring. You’ll be eager to get out there and discover new perspectives, places, and studies. It’s a good time to break out of your routine and try something new. This season, the world is your oyster, so go ahead and try new things.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
On September 23, the sun will enter your eighth house, illuminating your personal matters, finances, and intimate relationships with others. This month, you’ll be revealing some of the most intimate aspects of your life. You may be establishing boundaries in your relationships or re-evaluating your finances and resources. This month may be more serious for you, but by the end, you’ll be relieved that you managed to get some of your important affairs in order.
