The Spring Equinox 2019 is on Wednesday, March 20, 2019. An equinox is the moment in time (not a day-long event) when the Sun stands directly above the equator and day and night are of approximately equal length.
In the twenty-first century, people are not in harmony with the earth, the seasons, and the shifting skies compared to the way our ancestors were in harmony with what went on around them. A good example of people not being aware is that so many pedestrians get injured or killed by cars because they are not paying attention.
Regardless of the noise and activity around us, and the demands on our time, we can still practice being in harmony with the earth and nature. Spring Equinox is a wonderful time to begin looking at life in a different way. Since Equinox is about balance, bringing one’s life into balance is a positive way to move forward with a life change.
Some ideas are:
- Make a date with yourself for once a week to walk outside, in a park, near a river, or through a forest, to feel the energy of the Sun, and to hear/feel/smell all the life around you.
- Today, Equinox, have a small bonfire, and celebrate the changing of the seasons. Throughout this year, plan to have a small bonfire or whatever type of fire works in your situation, and have a few friends over to relax and talk about the miracles that are happening.
- Sit outside, under the night sky, and watch the stars. If the city lights are too bright, drive to a large park or to a place outside the city to see the stars and contemplate where you want your life to be moving to – a goal perhaps.
- Think about some new rituals that you would like to add to your life. Meeting a friend for coffee once a month is a great ritual.
Walk in peace.
