The Equinox falls on September 22nd, when the hours of light and dark are the same. This time represents a shift in the seasons, and a time where the energy of the Sun and Moon are in complete balance.
This Equinox comes as a reminder that we all change and that transformation is natural and a normal part of life. If the trees resisted the shedding process, they would not be prepared for what is to come. If the flower resisted to bloom, they would never know the fullness of their own beauty.
Just the same, we have to trust that whatever we release and whatever we feel called to bloom, will only be preparing us for what is ahead. The Equinox also comes at the same time that the Sun will shift into the energy of Libra. Libra represents a highly creative time where beauty, joy and aesthetics are highlighted. Libra is also all about partnerships and being able to balance energies.
No matter where you live, learning how to balance your energy is going to be important around the Equinox time. As the ancient poet Rumi says- “life is a balance between holding on and letting go”, and this is perfectly fitting for the energy of this Equinox.
