faywithloveThe significance for Spring, is that daylight starts to increase, so the earth is about to tip over to more LIGHT, like an illuminating, sublime reminder that light is returning and always does, to earth. Therefore, the Spring equinox represents new light and life, new beginings, seeds and paths. In fact the spring equinox used to be considered the new year in many parts of Europe until the middle of the 18th century. There was also a connection to Eostre, the Goddess of Dawn / East. Easter as a holiday also has that sense of fertility, with the depiction often of hares and eggs as a symbol of birth and fertility, new life, babies, creation and so on (hence easter eggs) . In ancient times rituals were performed at the moment of alignment and people would cleanse old energy out as well as in their homes, temples etc. This is where our tradition of ‘spring cleaning’ came from! So you see how reclaiming the sacred ways and mindset past brings us closer to both the Great Spirit as well as a closer truth.
Just as the length of day and night is equal, this time represents our own need for balance of the yin/yang and male/female energies. Balanced equilibrium as the ideal state for our lives.
It is a time of renewal, new beginnings of life and growth blooming gloriously and ushering in a renewed sense of energy brought in to help you focus and move forward in new, fresh, positive ways. #spring
