Starting September 22nd, we are entering a new phase of the year. We are shifting into the season of Fall. The term "equinox" is a combination of two Latin words meaning "equal" and "night", meaning that we will experience exactly a 12 hour day and 12 hour night to mark the shift of seasons that is occurring. The Earth's axis has tilted and we are experiencing equal amounts of lightness and darkness in the Northern Hemisphere. Here, we experience the balance that is bringing brought into our lives, stabilizing our energy and allowing us to go with the flow. On this day, we can see a visual representation of what polarity is. The lightness and the darkness, within us and around us. The yin and the yang. The masculine and the feminine. Everything is balanced.
Also on this day will be the beginning of Libra season, which will last from September 22nd until October 23rd. Libra is a sign of balance, which is a theme to incorporate this Fall. It is a time come back down to earth, while still connecting to that version of your highest self. It is a time to sit down and become aware of the journey we are in, accept it for what it is, and what has yet to come. The Fall brings some of the favorite holidays within the year - Halloween on October 31st and Thanksgiving on November 24th.
