Getting The Point — Libra Equinox and New Moon

Between the Libra equinox only hours ago, and the Libra New Moon only hours after this piece has been posted, the luminaries (Sun and Moon) are making a point. It’s simple.

Just when the Sun entered tropical Libra, it was at the same time directly overhead at Earth’s equator (with relatively equal days and nights worldwide), beginning a new season. Equinox is that simple.

The Sun will appear directly overhead just South of the equator tomorrow. After that, the Sun will rise and set a bit further South each day no matter where you are until the Capricorn solstice.

At the Capricorn solstice, the Sun will appear directly overhead at the Tropic of Capricorn just as the Sun is entering the tropical sign called Capricorn to start yet another season.

After the Capricorn solstice, the Sun begins rising and setting farther and farther North. It appears directly over the equator again just as it enters tropical Aries for another equinox six months from now.

After the Aries equinox, the Sun’s apparent path continues North until entering tropical Cancer in another nine months, just as it appears directly overhead at the Tropic of Cancer. After which, the Sun heads South again.
