Autumn Equinox is on September 23, 2015 – This is celebrated as one of eight solar holidays in the Wheel Year.
The Autumn Equinox is another perfect balance on the spiritual journey on the Wheel of the Year.
Its counterpart is Spring Equinox. Both of these Equinoxes happen night and day of equal length and in perfect time – when there is a complete balance between the dark and light, feminine and masculine and the outer and inner.
It’s the time of the final harvest when many crops including squash, pears, apples, nuts, grapes, corn, and all berries are picked. This is the date the Sun enters the sign of Libra, the sign of love peace and harmony.
The beginning weeks of the Equinox, it’s the time to assess and harvest the seeds of your dreams and goals, that you planted earlier this year. Analyzing your progress, embracing and acknowledge your successes, giving gratitude and thanks.
Combined with mercury retrograde, will give the re-evaluate or renewal effect with love and soulmate relationships. This is the time to think and examine where you are at in your situation, the changes that have to be made to begin a cycle and balance in your life.
From the Autumn Equinox to the Winter Solstice it is a perfect opportunity to take even a deep look inside your spirit. eliminate out what has completed its course and nourish the roots of everything you want to grow higher and deeper in spring.
No matter where you are on our beautiful planet, it is a time of transition as Nature expresses the perfect balance with day and night energy in equilibrium with each other.
In the Northern Hemisphere we are turning towards the dark. From this day our nights will grow longer, as it grows larger each day until the Solstice.
Many of you below the equator, the total opposite is happening, it is the beginning of spring, you are welcoming the brighter, longer days of this time of the year, and expanding into the outward period of the summer months. We’re all affected by the shift as the sun slowly turns around our beautiful planet.
When you tune into the people you love, it could be your soulmate, spouse, lover, child, family member or friend, you are giving yourself love as gift. You automatically acknowledge the connectivity to all living beings on Earth. This sets the energy for the upcoming Holidays that include gratitude and love.
This opens up new door ways for your spiritual growth, love, progress and transformation to the natural cycle of this planet we share, you embrace your self with love.
In the old ancient times, before there was high rises, buildings, electricity, mobile phones, fancy houses and cars. Humans from all over the world all acknowledged the cycle of nature, the true purpose of living.
It’s amazing that in so many different cultures all over the planet, people knew when the solstices began and Autumn Equinox happened. Without the use of telescopes and Iphones, the sun, moon and stars told them when to acknowledge and when it was time to celebrate these transitions.
Use this time for the power of the cycle with nature to open to your deep knowing and spiritual intuition. Many ways to is to write, communicate, meditate, walking in nature to embrace the beauty with changing colors in the trees (this is my favorite).
Autumn equinox is a time to appreciate all our blessings. In many places there is Thanksgiving, the last harvest is gathered and then stored for the months of winter.
So let us all give thanks for the blessings that we harvest. If you can, get outside and experience and embrace the beauty of nature this Autumn Equinox week.
Celebrate the beautiful Autumn Equinox with turning colors of the trees, the vibrant colors of berries. Take pics (selfies included lol) to hold on to and cherish the moments.
