The autumnal equinox, marks the first day of fall for the Northern Hemisphere. It's called the time of balance when there is typically 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness. The Farmer's Almanac says "On the equinoxes, the very center of the Sun sets just 12 hours after it rises."
Autumnal Equinox Traditions include celebrations as people danced and rejoiced at the harvest. It includes rituals and religious observance including the feast of St. Michael and all Angels. The Autumnal Equinox is also a magical time within a metaphysical gateway. It is the time to shift and create. At this time day and night are in perfect balance as transformation begins. Just look at the trees, whose leaves change to provide a cornucopia of color before falling away. It is the natural cycle as we “fall” in love with our surroundings and get ready for winter.
We have entered the season of the goddess of balance. The Egyptian Goddess of Justice, Maat called this a time to let go of what makes the heart heavy so it is light to gain insight into and reveal your hidden destiny.
What are your desires for change within you, your life and the world? Do you seek inner balance or a deeper understanding of your life’s purpose or an increase in consciousness? If so, then take time to meditate and reflect as you release what no longer serves you and connect to that higher wisdom that will guide you forward.
Wishing you a colorful rest of your day,
