Monday 20th March is the date when night and day will be equal. After this our days in the southern hemisphere will slowly get shorter and the nights longer. We will move from summer to winter, from light to dark, and from outer to inner. The equinox is a time of balance throughout the globe, one of the two times of the year when both hemispheres have days and nights of equal length.
Our ritual group met to celebrate this festival, with a meditation that encouraged us to consider what our psychological harvest might be, and how we might sustain ourselves through the darker time. We each received a small parcel of seeds to take home and plant, in preparation for spring.
“If only the whole world could be
in balance psychologically.”
