The equinox is upon us! For those of you who don't know, the equinox is when the sun moves over the line of the earth's equator. This occurs twice a year, and marks the beginning of spring and fall. The word "equinox" comes from the Latin words for "equal night." On the day of the equinox, day and night are nearly equal in length all over the world.
The equinox also signals a shift in energy. From a spiritual perspective, these are days when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest and we have the opportunity to connect with other realms and dimensions. These two days are powerful portals for spiritual growth and transformation. If you are seeking to connect with your higher self or to make a positive change in your life, then working with the energy of the equinox can be a powerful tool.
Both of these days are ideal for setting powerful intentions and working with energy clearing and manifesting rituals.
On the autumn equinox, we focus on letting go of what no longer serves us. We release the old and make space for the new. This is a day of balance, when night and day are equal. It is a time to reflect on our journey so far, and to set our intention for the months ahead.
On the spring equinox, we focus on new beginnings. We plant the seeds of our intention and watch them grow. This is a day of hope, when we celebrate the return of light after the dark winter months. It is a time to reflect on what we want to manifest in our lives, and to take action towards our goals.
If you'd like to work with the energies of these special days, there are a few things you can do. First, take some time to reflect on what you'd like to let go of. This could be anything from a negative belief about yourself to a harmful habit or relationship. Once you've identified what you'd like to release, write it down on a piece of paper. Then, on the autumn equinox, burn the paper in a safe place outdoors and visualize your intention going up in smoke. As you do this, release your attachment to the thing you want to let go of and know that it's no longer part of your reality.
If you're looking to set some positive intentions for the spring equinox, spend some time brainstorming what you'd like to bring into your life. This could be anything from a new job or creative project to more love or abundance. Once you've identified your intention, write it down on a piece of paper and place it somewhere you'll see it every day. On the spring equinox, read your intention out loud and visualize it coming into your life. Then, take some time to brainstorm what actions you can take to make your intention a reality.
There's no right or wrong way to work with the energies of the autumn and spring equinox. The most important thing is that you do what feels right for you. So, whether you're looking to let go of something or bring something new into your life, use these special days to set your intention and take some action towards making it happen.
