The Spiritual Significance of Autumn Equinox
September 18, 2018
It is a very common belief that celestial events impact us on a spiritual level. Ancient civilizations realized the significance of blood moons, eclipses, and equinoxes a long time ago and took appropriate measures to benefit from them. The generations that followed did not allow these traditions to die. Even today, despite so many advancements, a lot of people still believe in the power of celestial events and use them to contemplate their journey on Earth and take appropriate actions to improve their lives. As a spiritual person myself, it is my firm belief that the universe gives us proper signs that reflect the current situations of our lives – we just have to open up our eyes and see them clearly.
One such significant celestial event is the autumnal equinox – a day which marks the beginning of fall in the Northern hemisphere and spring in the Southern hemisphere. This is the time when the sun is directly above the equator, making the day and night of equal lengths. In the Northern Hemisphere the fall equinox occurs every year on September 21 to 23.
What makes this equinox so special is the fact that it is associated with perfect balance and brings an abundance of wealth and crops. It is the time to bring in your harvests and let go of any bad seeds (thought, people, feelings, situations) that you no longer want to have continued in your life.
In this blog post, I will shed some light on why the autumnal equinox is so spiritually significant and how you can make use of it to make your life much better. Also, to make the most of this year’s autumnal equinox, I’m arranging an Autumn Equinox Harvest Potluck, where I will lead a blessing ritual to celebrate the event as a turning point in life and business.
Why the Autumn Equinox is Important
There are many factors that make the autumnal equinox a special time for the spiritually aware. The following are the major ones:
It is a time of abundance.
Legend has it that during the autumnal equinox, the waning sun brings with it an abundance of crops and wealth. This is a great time to harvest the blessings of life, whether in the form of material wealth or spiritual peace. Orchards and farms are expected to yield fruitful results so it is advised to show your appreciation towards the universe for its limitless blessings. But, the question is, how? One great way of thanking the universe is to give back to the universe, that is, by spreading the gift of joy, love, or even material things. And the best part is that anyone, from a homeless person to the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, can benefit from these blessings!
It is a time of perfect balance.
Equinoxes are the times of pitch-perfect spiritual balance. During an equinox, the lengths of the day and night time are the same. This beautiful celestial harmony is rarely seen throughout the year, making these events incredibly special. Therefore, this autumnal equinox, try to take advantage of this spiritual balance by meditating, using positive affirmations, thanking the universe, and contemplating your entire year. Moreover, the days that follow become shorter whereas the nights become longer. In the ancient times, our ancestors used to start working much harder in the fields to make up for the lack of daytime. Although that’s no longer an issue in the modern times, we should follow in their footsteps and boost our productivity.
It is a time of seasonal cleansing.
Detoxification can be performed both on physical and spiritual levels. Our minds, bodies, and spirits are always exposed to contaminants that can affect our day-to-day lives, therefore, it is important to get rid of these toxins by detoxification processes. But, what does this have to do with the autumnal equinox? Many coaches recommend that the best time for an effective detoxification is the autumnal equinox. While it’s true that you can rid your spirit and body of toxins at any given time of the year, equinoxes have a special seasonal cleansing attribute that can make the entire process much faster and far more effective. In fact, overall, the time is incredibly beneficial for health, resulting in better blood production and thicker hair.
It is a time to become stronger.
The start of autumn marks the beginning of darker days, in both the literal and spiritual senses. Literal because, as mentioned above, days start getting shorter and nights start getting longer. During this time, evil spirits and negative energies tend to get stronger. Fortunately, the autumnal equinox, due to the perfect balance and great abundance associated with it, makes us spiritually stronger and gives us the courage needed to face our demons and prevent negative energies from taking a toll on our daily lives. So, don’t be afraid of the reduced daylight – take control of your spiritual, emotional, and physical selves by utilizing the power of the sun.
The main thing that we can learn from the autumnal equinox is the spirit of giving, being thankful, and creating more balance and harmony in our lives. To be more precise, it’s all about embracing the blessings of life, along with playing your role in blessings others that are around you, including strangers. I advise everyone to take full advantage of this celestial event by attracting limitless wealth, bounties, and spiritual, mental, and physical peace into your lives. Spread the word so that your friends and family members can also benefit from the blessings of this time.
