Spring Equinox 2016

It is the earliest Spring Equinox since 1896.  In Central and Pacific Daylight Time Zones it occurred Saturday, March 19th.

The Spring Equinox occurs… “midway between the sun’s lowest path across the sky in winter and the highest path across the sky in summer,”  Deborah Byrd, earthsky.org.   In other words, Equinoxes occur at the mid-point between the Solstices, and, Solstices occur at the mid-point between Equinoxes; dividing the year into four equal parts, four seasons.

In the Northern Hemisphere the Earth awakens.  In the Southern Hemisphere it is the Autumnal Equinox, a time of harvest and preparation for the coming of sleeping winter.

Four is the number of all things earthly.  In Tarot, four is the Earth Element.  Four represents the natural order;  four represents renewal.  The Spring Equinox is a time of awakening.

I invite you to take some precious moments this week to rejoice in renewal and the blossoming of Spring.
