This year in the Northern Hemisphere the Autumnal Equinox occurs between September 22 and 23, depending on the Time Zone (If you are living in the Southern Hemisphere and so you are celebrating the Spring Equinox, keep reading till the end anyway, there is a little surprise in the form of a link for you too).
In both the Hemispheres, the Equinox is that moment of the year in which, everywhere on Earth, the length of daytime and of nighttime are equal - a magical moment of balance between light and darkness.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the Autumnal Equinox marks the beginning of Autumn, or Fall (while in the Southern Hemisphere this moment marks the beginning of Spring).
In many Spiritual traditions, Autumn is connected to Element Air, and the "winds of change" bring Nature to turn all the energies inward to protect life.
In the Hemisphere I live in, the Northern, this is the most enchanting and transformative Season, corresponding to a specific stage of a woman's life, and also to a specific phase of the menstrual cycle for women in their fertile age.
Every moment of our life carries a treasure and many gifts. and every astronomical event gives us precious information to find that treasure and related gifts.
So today I decided to gift you with a short video medit-activation (a kind of movement meditation, or activation), dedicated to the Autumnal Equinox. You will find it below, at the end of this post.
For those who are living in the Southern Hemisphere, HERE you can find a link to a fun post dedicated to the Spring Equinox.
The more I keep connecting the dots (that is my passion) and find connections between different disciplines and fields of knowledge, the more I become attracted to the "dance of opposites". So stay tuned. In the next Seasonal Celebration, I will also take into consideration what is going on somewhere else on our Planet (more specifically on the opposite Hemisphere) to work every day more towards integration.
For those who are on the Northern Emisphere like me, and so are celebrating the beginning of Autumn (or Fall), this is a link to a longer video, in which you can find not only a meditation-activation, but also the information regarding the correspondences between Autumn, the Moon Phases, the hormonal cycle, and women's life stages: Autumnal Equinox - Winds of Change
Another source of information to understand all the correspondences is my book "The Sacred Body" (you can download chapter One for free HERE and understand if you are interested in it).
And now, finally, enjoy my little gift!
