Equinox Messages

“Four seasons fill the measure of the year;
There are four seasons in the mind of men.”
-- John Keats

How in touch are you with the rhythms of nature and our planet? We’ve just passed the Equinox on March 21, one of two dates each year when the hours of daylight equal the hours of darkness.

All over the world, rituals are most common at this time to anchor our participation and oneness with the abundance and cycles of nature. What does this time mean for us?

Those of us in the northern hemisphere are emerging from a reflective, nurturing dark time. In many traditions, the first day of Spring marks the start of a new year. It is a time of clearing the slower energies of the winter and preparing for a new cycle of growth. It is a time of awakening and recommitting to life as spring brings in energy and warmth. It is a celebration of being born again and resurrected from the dead.

Residents of the southern hemisphere are leaving behind the creative manifesting period of summer. This is a time of harvest, community, celebration and thanksgiving. It is a time of completion, balance and realizing the abundance around us. As the sun retreats, we also retreat inside to rest, reflect on the past and future, and strengthen our spirits.

At this same time, in astrological terms, the sun moves into Aries – a sign representing energy, drive, initiative and motivation. There is a restlessness and an openness to change and new experiences.

Whether you are moving into the light or the darkness, now’s a time to reflect on your relationship to life. We invite you to revisit what brings you personal and spiritual fulfillment.

For the two of us living in the northern hemisphere (western Canada to be more precise), we’ve eagerly embraced the new energies of Spring. We’re celebrating with fresh new looks for our Higher Awareness web site and our Growth Tools and Inner Journey newsletters. We’re also exploring fresh new ways to create new offerings for our members.

We wish you an inspiring, productive and meaningful new chapter in your life’s journey.
