As I post this we're within a couple of days of the Equinox, when the Sun will cross from the sign of Virgo (Tropical horoscope system) to Libra. This will happen Thursday (September 22) at about 7:21 am California time (10:21 am on the US East Coast, 2:21 pm UTC ("Greenwich")).

The Sun also crosses the Equator from North to South at this time.

As usual, Wikipedia has something to say:

The figure at

shows the Sun's position on its journey through the signs of the Zodiac. It's updated hourly (but not on the hour). You can look at it year-round even if I only post about it at Equinoxes and Solstices.
