Our senses tell us summer has come to an end in the northern half of the world. The Autumn Equinox arrives this year on Tuesday September 22, 2020. This officially marks the beginning of fall in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere.
The word "equinox" comes from the Latin and means "equal night." Essentially, two times a year the day and night are equal (12 hours). The Autumn Equinox represents a time of harvest and contractive force within the earth to prepare for the colder months ahead. It is a time to harvest the efforts of your intentions for your life path that you set earlier in the year.
The changing seasons are key points in nature: the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice and Autumnal Equinox. Just as the seasons move through these cycles, so too does the human spirit evolve ever deeper towards a state of enlightenment.
From a spiritual perspective, fall is a time to acknowledge abundance. It is a time to recognize there is abundance all around, and to acknowledge abundance as our natural state of being.
