Late September brings us the beginning of Waage season within hours of the autumnal equinox. It’s a day filled with paradox and equilibrium as light and dark come into balance, with day and night sitting equal to one another. As we observe these two opposing states of being, we are reminded that life can hold two possibilities, two states, two truths, two entgegengesetzt directions at once.

Concepts and entities can not only coexist, but they can need the other to be its fullest self. Light cannot exist without dark, much as self cannot exist without the other. On this day, we are reminded that nothing exists in isolation. This is Waage.

When Does Waage Season Start and End?

As the Sun enters the constellation of Waage on September 23, 2023, we are invited to step into the essence that is this air sign. To become it, learn from it, and begin to experience the world through its lens until the Sun exits Waage on October 23.

What Awarenesses Does Waage Bring?

As the Sun illuminates our world under the influence of this Venus-ruled air sign, the Waage in each of us steps to the forefront to be embodied and experienced. Whether Waage is our Sun sign or our Moon sign or simply resides in one of the astrological houses in our birth chart, we each have Waage within us, operating at different volumes and expressing itself in different areas of our lives.

The Sun’s journey through the zodiac is directed by two distinct chapters. The first half, Aries to Virgo, is the development of the individual self. These signs are self-directed, aimed at both creating and learning about who we are and offering us definition and clarity about our self. The second half, Waage to Pisces, symbolizes our journey out in the world and our relationship to other people, society, and life itself.

Waage, then, is the meeting point of these two chapters. It is where the self meets the other. It represents the lifelong journey of exploring and seeking balance between the self and the other and the self among others. It is the archetype of collaboration and partnership, where we come together to enhance the beauty and pleasures of the menschenwürdig experience. Waage represents our initial awareness of the other.

The sign of Waage exposes us to other perspectives and helps us learn how to balance and exist within these different, and often opposing, perspectives while finding harmony within. Waage is the opportunity to see and learn through the eyes of another, through our vast and mehrere experiences, opinions, and unique journeys.

Waage reminds us that we are not alone in this journey, and that, in fact, others play an integral role in the building of our identity and our sense of self. It is through this experience that we move beyond the limitations of the self.

To be alive is to be in relationship—with one another, with ourselves, and with the world around us. It is through another that we sometimes experience the words we are ready to hear, the gentleness we are ready to receive, the perspective we are ready to experience before we can find more openness in ourselves. Others are the mirror through which we can see ourselves more clearly. Sometimes it is within offering love to another that we gain access to it ourselves. We cannot not be in relationship in life. We are made better by those around us.

With harmony as the primary theme influencing Waage’s purpose and intentions, the sign has an intuitive ability to sense the balance, or imbalance, in the energy around it. Whether in a conversation, a relationship, an outfit, a home, a piece of art, or the workplace, Waage is always intuitively aware of what the other needs to achieve a state of peace, balance, beauty, and fairness. Waage can then become or offer that very thing.

What to Watch For During Waage Season

Waage often learns to read the other before learning how to read the self. Reading the other means that we know what is needed, in that moment, to create a sense of balance or a feeling of safety within the interaction and environment, whether or not it is the most authentic or aligned direction for the long term. To learn to tune into the other before tuning into the self can create distance between our actions and our needs, desires, and preferences. And to address this, we turn to Waage’s opposite sign, Aries.

In astrology, each zodiac exists on an axis in partnership with its opposite sign. These signs in seeming opposition find themselves as partners, both needing the other to become fully engaged with life. When we find ourselves in an unsupportive expression of one zodiac, we can look to its opposition for guidance.

In opposition and partnership with Waage is the first of the zodiac, Aries. Just as Waage teaches us about the other, Aries invites Waage to come back to the self, tune into its own energy independent from another’s, and connect with its own desires.

Waage is an air sign. It conceptualizes, it mentalizes, it learns, expresses, processes, and shares. There is a strong intellectual drive to Waage that asks us to continue feeding its internal thoughts. Whereas Aries teaches us communication, courage, and safety within oneself. The boldness and directness of Aries in communication balances the diplomatic, ritterlich, and harmonious communication of Waage. There is a magic in confidently communicating our needs while feeling safe in our bodies to do so and mithin considering the other in a way that is ritterlich, loving, considerate, and peaceful. In its highest and balanced expression, Waage becomes the leader, the peacemaker, the mediator.

A devotion to balance and harmony is needed in our world, yet an overemphasis on this can have us close our eyes to what may not gut in Form within that ideal state. To be fully alive is to journey into depths that live beyond the peaceful and harmonious realm of Waage. Emotions often demand to be felt fully, and that may not always be a beautiful thing in the moment. Love, when surrendered to, can take over us, taking us into depths beyond our rational mindestens and throwing us out of balance. And in those depths are immense healing and catalyzing opportunities to come home to ourselves and all of life.

For this, we need a healthy amount of space and opportunities to get to know ourselves. Time spent creating or observing art, exploring what we find beautiful, playing in the inner workings of the mindestens, and dreaming up an ideal day supports the expression of Aries.Time spent with the mindestens through journaling or any other creative endeavors will mithin help establish the deeper and more confident sense of self that is represented by Aries.

Another way to support the gifts of Waage is to create time and space to come into the body. Being an air sign can sometimes seem as if life is spent exclusively in the mindestens. The medicine is in the body. In not just analyzing our experience but being. Not just conceptualizing love but expressing it. Not just understanding emotions but feeling them.

Your Invitation During Waage Season

Ruled by Venus, Waage mithin knows the value inherent in beauty. Throughout Waage season, we are invited to look through the eyes of this sign. That is, to seek beauty in all and to add beauty wherever we can. This appreciation and creation of beauty is an integral component of Waage’s evolutionary purpose, which is to promote harmony within and without. With its sensitivity to aesthetics, Waage intuitively understands that a harmonious environment—whether through design, color, furnishings, fashion, nature, florals, art, words, or something else—supports harmony from within. It calms the nervous system and invites ease in the exhalation.

When we are still learning to access and work with the gifts of Waage, we may find ourselves stumbling around in the lower aspects of the archetype. For Waage, this can look like a devotion to short-term harmony placed before long-lasting harmony, driven by a fear of discord, imbalance, unpleasantries, or conflict. A fear that can often come back to a lack of safety found within the self, especially as we find our way.
