Vernal Spring Equinox is March 20, 2013. This is the point each year where our day and night are equally divided; 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness, due to the sun being positioned directly over the equator.
Celebrated the world over for millennia as the beginning of Spring, flowers blooming, and a sign of the fruits to come. Christians celebrate Easter the first Sunday after the first full moon beyond the Vernal Equinox. Easter symbolizes Jesus Christ's resurrection from the cross (representing eternal life, or light and renewal). Non-traditionalists celebrate this as a time of fertility, symbolized by the egg. In Egypt the Great Sphinx faces the rising sun on this day. It is also a traditional Japanese national holiday where they celebrate seasonal change, as well as being a time where they visit their family tombs to pay respect. This is also the beginning of the Persian New Year, the start of a thirteen-day celebration in Zoroastrianism.
It is a great time for Spring cleaning in your home. Don't get bogged down with the idea that you must start on the Equinox to effect change. Anytime in the Spring is the right time. Use this time to declutter your home. Donate things that you have not used over the past year. Delete the old emails and files on your computer that are no longer needed. Detox your body with juicing, or eating lighter meals like fresh fruit and salads.
With a spiritual view, the Equinox is a time for reviewing the past and letting it go, to allow room for the new planting and sprouting seeds. Take the time to review the occurrences of the past season, or even this past year and beyond. What lessons have you learned? What changes would you like to make? Let go of any regrets and mistakes, fore this is the time of renewal and a fresh start.
Journal about your hopes, wishes, and dreams for the future. By doing so, you will be planting seeds to allow for fertilization. You may also start noticing the sprouting of seeds you had planted at the end of 2012. Nurture them with love, allowing them to emerge in Divine timing.
We are now in the Golden Age, so things will start to improve in all areas of your life. Many have had to go through the "Dark Night of the Soul". This may have been a very trying time for some people. You may have had struggles with finances, disagreements with family, friends, or colleagues. You may have just been feeling restlessness, or a sense that something was missing, or that you were off path. Just know that this was a necessary purging that we had to go through. The Earth herself was going through the same. Awakening will be easier now. The heart is opening for all. Be gentle with yourself, this will not happen overnight. However, rest assured the process has begun.
Be open to the invisible guidance that is available to you. This is birthright energy from your Creator. You may picture this energy coming from your Higher Consciousness, or from Angels, or Guides if you like. Keep watch for synchronicities. The more you take notice, the more they will occur.
Wear a smile like your favorite article of clothing. Notice how people react to you when you do this. What you will be doing is sharing the energy of love and assisting others to move into the same vibration.
And most important...Believe! The nectar of Amrita is becoming available. We chose to be born of this time.
