Twice a year we experience a time when the amount of daylight and darkness are equal. These are the equinoxes. As I write this, I am getting ready to host a shamanic fire ceremony this evening in honor of the Vernal Equinox.
Ideally, at least for the solar cycle, all is in perfect balance on these 2 days, one being the first day of spring, and the other the first day of fall. But for us, being out of balance seems to be the norm nowadays! On the equinox, we have the opportunity to examine our lives and set things straight if they are not balanced and harmonious. This could mean letting go of some aspect of our lives that has not served us, or making amends in a difficult situation. What about habits and behaviors that continue to throw us off?
Whatever you decide to let go of, an additional intent should be strongly made that you come back into balance in your life. Create your own ceremony or meditation to give your intent extra power. Also, do not delay, as the power of the equinox lasts only about 3 days.
My intent for the fire ceremony tonight is to extend our group's elevated energy to all of you who are reading this post. Happy Equinox to all!
