Magic of the Spring Equinox
This year’s spring equinox is March 20, 2018. The magic of the equinox is that light and dark are nearly equal. The sun rises precisely in the east and sets precisely in the west.
Different cultures celebrate the season by performing ceremonies. In India, Holi is celebrated, and Persians celebrate Nowruz. Both involve a lot of dancing and celebrating of the coming spring.
In native tradition, the spring equinox meant asserting the warrior within. This meant that, by cleansing, a person would be able to have a greater self-expression and expand new endeavors in life.
In all the traditions, it means we have new opportunities and a rebirth for the spiritual being.
