The Vernal Equinox
On March 20, 2022, the Spring or Vernal Equinox will occur. The Vernal Equinox is a time when we experience an equal measure of light and dark as the sun’s disk crosses the Earth's horizon directly to the east at sunrise; and again, some 12 hours later, directly to the west at sunset. In the Northern Hemisphere, we are welcoming the season of spring - a season of rebirth, growth and reawakening. Because the veil between dimensions is so thin on this day you can experience a wash of emotions as you face past life experiences and move forward into a new life purpose. As we greet the Equinox and the start of Aries season (the zodiac New Year), there is a LOT of energy moving around us.
If you were curious, the point where the Sun crosses the celestial equator northwards is called the First Point of Aries. However, due to the precession of the equinoxes, this point is no longer in the constellation Aries, but rather in Pisces. By the year 2600 it will be in Aquarius. The Earth's axis causes the First Point of Aries to travel westwards across the sky at a rate of roughly one degree every 72 years. Based on the modern constellation boundaries, the northward equinox passed from Taurus into Aries in the year −1865 (1866 BC), passed into Pisces in the year −67 (68 BC), will pass into Aquarius in the year 2597, and will pass into Capricornus in the year 4312.
We are moving from the water sign of Pisces into the fire sign of Aries as we transition into this next season. In moving from more emotional energies to the dynamic action energies we want to cleanse and be clear more than ever. It’s such a great opportunity to use the Spring Equinox energy to cleanse out the junk and stagnant energy that is no longer serving you so that the Aries fire energy can attract and move mountains for all of our desires to manifest.
The Spring Equinox brings in major reawakened pranic (life force) energy, urging you to let go of the old version of you which was stuck, inhibited or limited in an old life journey. This is the best time to detox your physical body and clear any excess weight keeping you from living life at your highest vibration. Clear out space to make room for divine gifts to come in.
Flowers budding, monarch butterflies migrating and soft gentle winds all signify that the planet is reawakening and all we need to do is align with its vibration.
Some say that the Vernal Equinox is the most important day as it is believed to be that the heavens are crossing, the cold is crossing to heat, the sun begins to warm the earth and the season of hibernation is over. Spring Equinox is also known as the first day of an energetic new year and an excellent time to start a new challenge.
Aligning and balancing our chakra, through positive affirmations, mantras and meditative yoga practices improve our ability to move through the changes of seasons with ease and comfort.
