As I post this we have about a day to go until the Equinox, when the Sun will cross from the sign of Virgo (Tropical horoscope system) to Libra. This will happen Friday (September 22) at about 1:02 pm California time (4:02 pm on the US East Coast, 8:02 pm UTC ("Greenwich"), and so on into Saturday (September 23) in Asia and Australia).

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.
