A couple of days ago, the Sun moved into Libra. This marked the Equinox, when the length of day and night are equal all over the world. In the Northern Hemisphere, the days will be getting shorter from now until the Solstice. In the Southern Hemisphere, the days will be getting longer.
We can draw up a chart for the Cardinal points, the Solstices and the Equinoxes, in order to get a sense of what the season will be like.
The chart for the previous Solstice was a difficult one.

The chart for the Equinox, however, is much more pleasant, and it brings hope for things to change in a positive direction.
The Libra Ingress Chart
In looking at this chart, the Sun and Mars are conjunct in Libra. Libra is not a good sign for either of these planets, but they are both applying to a trine with Saturn. Saturn is quite strong in Aquarius, even though she is retrograde. Furthermore, she is exalted in Libra, which gives her quite a bit of influence over the planets there.
Mercury is separating from a trine with Jupiter and a square with Pluto. Even though this aspect is separating, the Moon is applying to a sextile with Jupiter, a square with Pluto, and finally an opposition with Mercury. This means that the Moon will be transferring Light between these planets.
Also, Mercury will go retrograde before leaving Libra and will make the same aspects with Pluto and Jupiter again. The dates for the Mercury retrograde will be between September 27 and October 18.
Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are all retrograde, but they will be turning direct shortly. Pluto will go direct on October 8, Saturn will go direct on October 11, and Jupiter will go direct on October 18, which is the same day that Mercury will go direct.
What does All of This Mean?
Overall, this is a positive chart. It is far nicer than the Cancer Ingress chart was. It is also conducive to forward progress.
There will be a lot more energy towards productivity than there has been, and it will be possible to find solutions for problems that had previously been intractable.
There could be a temptation to get overambitious, however. Progress had been halted for so long, it may feel like the bottled energy will burst.
For this reason, it is important to keep things slow and steady. There is light at the end of the tunnel, but it would be a bad idea to run toward it. Instead, proceed at a careful and sensible pace.
Even so, there is reason to hope. Things are getting better.
