Autumn Equinox

As the midday sun begins to sink lower in the sky and the night becomes chilly and darker before we even notice the changing of colours with our eyes, our senses tell us that the reign of summer has come to an end in the northern half of the world.

The autumn equinox arrives at 8:50 am today September 23, 2019, officially marking the beginning of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere.

The word “equinox” comes from Latin and means “equal night,” referring to the roughly 12-hour day and 12-hour night that occurs only on the two equinox days of the year.

The Autumn Equinox is a meaningful time of year to honour the harvest. Whether that be a "real" harvest or the harvest of efforts and intentions for your life path that you may have set earlier in the year.

The changing seasons are key points in the cycle of life in nature, and within this cycle, many ancient cultures perceived a powerful deeper message for humanity.

Many cultures recognised earth-based wisdom and understood that the four focal points of the year: the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Autumn Equinox; illuminated stages of an inner spiritual journey, a spiritual cycle that the individual takes within themselves.

Spend time in thoughtfulness today and acknowledge your personal growth and ask for harmony and balance to come into your life.

Spiritually speaking, Autumn represents the Harvest time of year, a time to acknowledge abundance as our natural state of being. Our lives go through cycles of growth, harvest, death, and rebirth just as we see in nature.

Spiritual Significance of Autumn Equinox, you may want to honour abundance and shift your consciousness from one of lack to one of abundance in some way. Such as lighting a candle, giving thanks, and speaking your gratitude for all that you are and all that you have.

Autumn is the time of year that we set up our internal space and make room for what’s to come in the next year. By becoming quiet and listening to what is trying to emerge from within us.

When we take the time this time of year to go within and empty out space, we create greater visions for the future.

I encourage you to take some time today to acknowledge your life cycle and spiritual path. In doing so, you are honouring, not only your own growth and light within but the ancient wisdom that has served our health and wellness for thousands of years.
