Tomorrow marks a turning point; it’s the second and last Equinox of the year. What does it mean? And how do we benefit from it?
What is the Equinox?
It’s a celestial event when the plane of Earth’s equator passes through the geometric center of the Sun’s disk. This occurs twice each year, around 20 March and 23 September. In other words, it is the moment at which the center of the visible Sun is directly above the equator.
In astrology, it means that it’s a time to reconsider oneself and how we treat others. Historically many cultures have celebrated this moment of change in the year. Because in most parts of the world the amount of daytime and nighttime is equal.
How do we benefit from it?
We must find balance and equanimity during this time by being in touch with seasons and nature’s cycles and finding balance in our relationships with others and with ourselves.
So, if someone tends to overgive and rely on other people’s opinions, they need to take this time to slow down and put themselves first.
On the other hand, if someone tends to prioritize themselves. They need to use this time to be more open to other people’s opinions and be more compassionate to other people’s problems.
All in all, this time is about encouraging harmony and balance in relationships and other aspects of life like work or self-care. Hopefully, we all take advantage of this Equinox and make it as beneficial to us as possible.
