Here we are at this auspicious time of the year….the Equinox….for us in the Southern Hemisphere it is the Autumnal Equinox and for the Northern Hemisphere – the Spring Equinox. Equal day and night. An Equinox is an astronomical event that happens twice, in Spring and Autumn, each year when the tilt of the Earth is at 0 degrees because of its duration of the day and the night are almost equal on the Equinox.
Astrologically, the Sun enters Aries, signalling the beginning of the zodiac year – a little like New Year’s Day! From here on the Sun moves into the other eleven signs. Use the Equinox to help motivate you and take one step, or action, at a time, which will set you on a different course. New energy is available now so grab it with both hands and move forward in your quest for life whatever that may be.
The Sun in Aries is a fire sign and it is vital energy. This energy marks the conception for new energy waiting for conscious direction. So over the next month you may be called to step up, take direction and welcome rebirth, renewal and be open to exploring these new pathways that will beckon you.
This is a really special time of year and I suggest you take part in the celebration and merge with this fresh new energy that offers great hope and renewal for you in more ways than you can imagine. The seasons are a magical way of guiding us through our day to day lives in a more purposeful and blissful way. Light your candle, align with the fire element and take action where you feel you need to. This is the beginning of the new year in every sense of the word. Make a fresh start and may this Equinox bring you much joy, love and blessings!
