The Spring Equinox

The Spring Equinox is the first day of spring season and occurs when the sun passes the equator moving from the southern to the northern hemisphere. The North Pole begins to lean toward the sun again. Day and night have approximately the same length.

Equinoxes happen every year on approximately March 20th and September 21nd, when the Sun’s rays shine directly on the Equator. With the Spring Equinox, the light of day begins to grow longer heading towards the Summer Solstice. With the Autumn Equinox, the days begin to grow shorter heading towards Winter. Not very spiritual, I know.

Ancient cultures and traditions around the world honored the cycle of the seasons, placing a key emphasis on these turning points of Solstices and Equinoxes. Equinoxes are considered a powerful time to connect with the Earth, the Sun and the entire Cosmos.

The Spring Equinox is about the visual showing of rebirth, there are more baby animals about, more flowers are blooming. It’s a time to “Spring Clean” spiritually speaking. You can do this by meditating, making sure that you concentrate on the Spirit of Spring. Lie on that grass, listen to that Earth, hear the birds and see the clouds. Just listen…

Spring or Autumn Equinox, tune into your hearts ❤
