It's Here: Your Beauty Horoscope for the Fall Equinox

The equinox signifies a change in light, where the day and night will equally share the sky. This also marks the significance of the sun entering the domain of Libra, a Venus-ruled sign, where the desire for beauty, peace of mind, and balance paves the way toward greater wholeness. However, in order to get there, we have to uncover all that is not harmonious or in alignment, and that takes work.

This September, two significant planets come out of hibernation, both having to do with skin. Saturn, Pluto, and the planet of beauty, Venus, will soon be retrograde from October 5 through November 16. Here's your beauty-scope skin guide for the equinox.

September 6: Saturn, the planet that represents the very structure of your life, including your bones and skin, woke up after five months of being retrograde. What did this mean for your skin? That it's dryer, needing more love, and that you're apt to be more disciplined with your routine.

September 21: Mercury enters Libra. Your mind and the way you communicate will desire more elegance, more soft hues, light pinks, and glosses—naturally luxurious.

September 23: Fall equinox. It's officially Libra season! The sun meets Mercury in Libra, inspiring balance in all areas of your life.

September 24: Full moon in Aries. Making things hot, especially your skin. Opt for a cooling mask and detox with this full moon. Surrendering to the problems instantly presents solutions if you're patient enough.

September 30: Pluto direct. Pluto is currently in Capricorn, the sign synonymous with skin, and will be bringing all sorts of stuff to the surface, especially with your skin. Expect breakouts, but don't go extreme. Focus on balancing your skin's pH levels.
