Autumn Equinox 2019
As Fall is upon us, on Sept 23 2019, it time for the Great Turning of the Wheel. Autumn Equinox marks one of the main holy days of many ancient calendars. It is a potent time that amplifies balance and healing on this planet because of its synchronic alignment with the Earth’s natural and seasonal cycles. Our ancestors and indigenous cultures all over the earth understood this as they aligned themselves, their ceremonies and their monuments with the natural procession of the Equinoxes and Solstices as sacred markers in time to move with the change. This time is well known from the Pyramids of Egypt, to Machu Picchu, to Stonehenge, Chichen Itza, and many other places. It is also called Mabon, the 2nd Harvest, Alban Elfed, Autumnal Equinox, Foghar, Fruit Harvest, Gŵyl Ganol yr Hydref (Welsh), Harvest Home, and Wine Harvest.
On the Equinox day and night, light and dark are equal. During this passing moment of perfect balance between the forces of the dark and the light, life gifts us with greater equanimity and wisdom, not only in the world of duality with the merging of inner and the outer consciousness and the opposite material viewpoints and skales uniting, but also within our inner masculine and feminine aspects. There is an energetic rebirth into a higher order of being in tune and the possibility to harmonize with nature and the pulse of the cosmos (creation). During such cosmic alignments as these we can come into greater contact with the ever-increasing awakening. Do not halter but have the courage to take responsibility for all of your actions – not only in your personal life, but also on a planetary and ecological scale! Think how you can make a difference in the world and bring more harmony and balance. I do think about that myself quite a bit.
Fall Equinox marks the beginning of a new season. It is a potent time to recalibrate, to pause and to review, to set intentions, to ground and to center. Set time aside for a spontaneous ritual and give thanks and have gratitude for being alive. It’s such a miracle! Focus on consciously creating balance in your life and ask yourself how you can be of service to the upliftment of the planet and the whole. This powerful time is also an opportunity to reclaim Mother Earth as our mother! Connect to the celestial forces and empower your wisely chosen intentions during this natural and cosmic alignment. Thanks for the divinely feminine inspiration, Natalia. We need that kind of balance, from the masculine to the feminine, with love.
