The Autumn Equinox – 22nd September 2021
The Autumn Equinox marks the point at which the sun crosses the celestial equator. The day is just as long as the night during the Equinox. Talk to one of our astrologers to find out what this means specifically for you!
“Equinox” is Latin for “equal night.” So, in the Northern Hemisphere, the days will only get shorter as the sun sinks lower in the sky. Alternatively, in the Southern Hemisphere, the days will continue to get longer.
The change of season brings changes in the world around us. Most obviously, the leaves on the trees begin to turn orange and brown, signalling the Autumn season and the journey towards Winter.
You might even notice a change of energy in the air around you as we move away from the warmth and light of Summer. This is why the Autumn Equinox is unique, as there is a balance of light and dark energy.
What is the meaning of the Autumn Equinox?
As the long summer nights are behind us, Autumn is a season of transition. This makes it a great time to reset and reflect! Take some time to think about how far you have come in the last year and appreciate the “fruits of your labour.”
That could literally be fruit and vegetables from your garden or harvesting other less-literal efforts from the Summer. This is a signifier that it is time for our next cycle in life. The leaves begin to fall, and Mother Nature reminds us that it is time to let things go and make space to start something new.
A great way to make space is to clear out our internal areas, allowing fresh energy into your home. Maybe it’s time to pack away the swimsuits and kaftans to make space for warmer layers!
Autumn Equinox Rituals
The Autumn Equinox has long been celebrated in ancient rural communities and pagan religions. A popular place to do this is Stonehenge. However, there are some rituals you can do at home to celebrate:
- Write down what you have been grateful for this Summer.
- Do a deep clean in preparation for the new season.
- Now is a fantastic time to begin something new, whether that be a new book or a new business venture.
- Make a delicious celebration meal using vegetables that adhere to the new season.
- Meditate to create an inner balance that reflects the balance of the seasons and energies around you.
- Go for a walk and bring awareness to all the tremendous changes happening around you.
