Happy Autumnal Equinox – or Vernal Equinox, if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere. I like noting these days; when the seasons change – the equinoxes and solstices – the rhythm of life on our planet.
I love living in a part of the world where we have four distinct seasons (well, most years). I love the message – nothing stays the same and nothing lasts forever.
The equinox reminds me of the importance of moving with the rhythm of myself, with others, and with the planet. My body responds naturally to the seasons. My sleep patterns shift, I look for different food for nourishment, and my activities and energy change.
The equinox is about balance – the time when the light and darkness are even. The message: remember to create balance in my life. I need time to rest, time to work, and time to play. Some days I can do more, some days will be less. It is all valuable. Each season contributes to the whole of my growth.
The seasons compliment together. Appreciate what each one brings – there are gifts there for us in both the seasons of the Earth and the seasons of our lives. Happy Autumn.
