In any case, an equinox marks a specific cycle of Earth ending with a new beginning. And since we are one with our magical blue planet, when we become aware of the change in season we can also prepare ourselves for the changes that will undoubtedly happen for us, rather than moving through them in zombie-like form.
To be conscious of the changing of seasons means that we take care of ourselves with love and tenderness supporting the natural desires of our temple body. For example, if we are in the northern hemisphere, we may have been out in the sun, moving our bodies throughout the summer and we know that as the weather changes with the temperatures go down, and the days become shorter, we must allow our bodies some slack to rest, start eating some more cooked veggies rather than cold salads and consciously reign in the outdoors into our souls.
It is different if you are in the southern hemisphere and this Equinox will mark the awakening of the dormant winter energies inviting you into longer days, more sunlight as the days become progressively longer, and you feel the pull to move more, go outside, and eat more vibrant, fresh colorful fruits and veggies.
A change of season is a doorway that marks a new cycle of three months starting now. The more intentional you are about what you are calling in for the coming cycle the more you become a powerful co-creator.
As always, my invitation is for you to take the time to honor this new phase. Create a small altar with the things you find in your garden or the park near you. Take time to meditate and write your intentions. Light a candle, create a sacred moment, and put your energetic imprint into what is next for you.
Pro tip: if you are going for a big goal, make sure you chunk it down setting your intention for the next step toward the biggest objective for this three-month cycle.
“Oh, what a catastrophe for man when he cut himself off from the rhythm of the year, from his unison with the sun and the earth. Oh, what a catastrophe, what a maiming of love when it was a personal, merely personal feeling, taken away from the rising and the setting of the sun, and cut off from the magic connection of the solstice and the equinox!”
