Well, it is now official; the summer season has come to an end and we are in the season of Autumn! The Autumn Equinox is today, that is we have equal hours of daylight and darkness when the sun crosses the celestial equator as it moves south. And from here on in, the hours of darkness will outweigh the hours of daylight. The wheel of the year is turning, as we edge closer and closer to winter. But today we have the beautiful zero-point energy of balance. It is a wonderful time to turn inward and focus, to sit in silence and draw on the life force energies that are in the ether right now, and for the next few days. Plus, we have the added bonus of the harvest full moon from yesterday still lingering also. So, don’t miss out, as it is a wonderful time energetically. The equinoxes both vernal (ver being the Latin for green, is the spring equinox) and autumn equinox were always honoured by the ancients, as potent energetic focal points in the solar calendar. Many ancient sites are aligned with the equinoxes, such as at Chichen Itza the pyramid of Kukulkan, Mnajdra in Malta, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Stonehenge in the UK, Karnak in Egypt, Knowth in Ireland, Machu Picchu in Peru, and Cahokia in Illinois are just to name a few. Therefore, you can see how energetically important these celestial events are, and how the ancients used sacred geometry to harvest these energies. So, if the ancients went to all that trouble, don’t you think that it is worth an extra effort today to meditate, to spend time standing still, or spend time in nature? If our ancestors went to all that trouble, then it was not for nothing, but for something special. If these specially designed buildings were placed and aligned with the equinoxes, and the solstices it just goes to show the relevance and importance of the solar calendar. Our forebearers were not a dumb group of hippies, holding hands in circles and chanting for the fun of it. Not at all, the reason that they went to such efforts, was because they had knowledge. The knowledge that we have partially lost, but thankfully not all of it. We do not have all the answers to the ancients puzzle, yet we do see, recognise and understand far better now the importance of the influx of the profound spiritual energy that the equinoxes and solstices bring. And it is these energies that we need to learn to harness and incorporate into our light bodies. And neither, this day should we mourn the passing of summer, instead, we should look back with gratitude and now harvest that which we had earlier sown. I cannot tell you what that is, as it is individual for each person, but when you reflect you will find it. So, as we wave goodbye to the summer and welcome with open arms the new season of autumn, we can do this with an attitude of eagerness, appreciation and openness for all the summer brought and for all that is yet to come; enjoy the equinox.
