2018 Fall Equinox
Equinox is a time of balance, as the earth’s equator aligns perfectly with the sun, allowing for exactly 12 hours of darkness and lightness. It is a time of balance between the light and dark, and yin and yang, and the masculine and the feminine. This celestial balance has a deeply profound energetic meaning. For those in the northern hemisphere, the Autumn equinox is a time of harvesting your rewards for the long work of the previous spring and summer and for the ending of cycles. With these endings, come new beginnings. Especially at this energetic timing, new things are opening up to us, the infinite possibilities are seeping into our consciousness, and we are more in tune to what is in alignment for us. We are asked to trust the degree of alignment we are experiencing, and delve deeply into this inner compass of true north. When we shift through all that no longer belongs to us, we are able to see clearly where we want to go. During this equinox, we are asked to not be afraid to embrace the new, for what you are attracted to would not come to you if you were not in alignment.
During this equinox, both Autumn and Spring, go forward and stepping into your role boldly. Trust that you are finding yourself, your deep self, by sifting through all that has no longer felt in alignment. Autumn is a time of balance, the ending of cycles, and inner reflection. Spring is a time of new beginnings, new hopes, and expanding your comfort zones.
A new dawn is coming, and this equinox is a beautiful start to this new incredible part of your journey.
