Fall Quadrant: Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius.

Fall Quadrant: Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius. This is the fall in the Northern Hemisphere (NH) and the Spring Quadrant in the Southern Hemisphere (SH). This is also considered the FULL MOON Season if you look at the whole year as one cycle of the moon.

In Western Tropical Astrology, the twelve star-signs are based on the orbit of our earth around the sun – and have little connection with the stellar constellations. Aries is seen as the “first” sign of the Zodiac, as it starts at the exact moment day and night are of equal length – the Spring equinox. All the other signs are measured from this point. Signs are said by many to have no manifest effect in themselves, but are activated when planets or houses are placed in them.

The sign of Libra is ruled by Venus along with Taurus. Physically it is related to the kidneys and human sensuality. Libra is said to have a masculine or “Yang” nature, and is therefore more socially outgoing in its interactions with others. As an Air sign (Octahedron), it is connected with people’s  intellectual and social relationships. As a Cardinal sign, Libra is a dynamic, leader that expresses their energy in ways that can be innovative.

The Virgin Goddess is a story told all over the world in many ways. For Virgo she is often associated with Lilith, Persephone, Andromeda, Justitia, Dike, and Astraea. Libra is the Scale of justice that belongs to Virgo. Used to bring order in the material world and left behind as a tool of precision for humanity to evolve.

Planetary energies in Libra usually help with balance and harmony. People with their sun, moon or Ascendent in Libra, usually are very concerned with the principles of fairness and justice. Libra people often have a great interest in getting people to function smoothly together. They are master negotiators. Planets here are motivated for partnership, and there is a willingness to compromise for the sake of a harmonious relationship. It can be an advantage to balance this consciousness of others with greater self-awareness and self-assertion.
