Spring Equinox…What is That?

Folks…we are headed for some seriously EXCITING times ahead. How far ahead? I don’t know and many are feeling tremendous events will occur in conjunction with the Spring Equinox on Friday, March 21. Let’s talk a little about the science of our Spring Equinox in North America.

On the equinox, night and day are nearly exactly the same length – 12 hours – all over the world. This is the reason it’s called an “equinox”, derived from Latin, meaning “equal night”.However, even if this is widely accepted, it isn’t entirely true. In reality equinoxes don’t have exactly 12 hours of daylight

The March equinox occurs the moment the sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from south to north. This happens either on March 19, 20 or 21 every year. On any other day of the year, the Earth’s axis tilts a little away from or towards the Sun. But on the two equinoxes, the Earth’s axis tilts neither away from nor towards the Sun, like the illustration shows.

For many studying “spiritual matters”,  The Vernal Equinox signaling the beginning of spring. Generally celebrated as the sun returns, this is why spring has always been associated with renewal and rebirth. The spring air smells fresh after our winters hibernation. The feeling of the continued warmth from the sun, the longer days are all so invigorating. I think this is why the collective feeling of rebirth. The shedding of our heavy winter coats encompasses all with a feeling of new-found freedom.

New found freedom, new ways of thinking, new ideas are all tied to the Equinox. This year more than ever, let’s think new and loving thoughts about our neighbours in the sky. Watch this video and think a little more about how YOU will react to newness in you life. It’s coming to you soon…https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=42jYT6JWwkQ
