What is the spring equinox?
As we've touched on above, the spring equinox is a true celebration of light, happiness, and prosperity - it's the time of year where more daylight is found peeking through the clouds and the sun begins to shine more often, leading up to the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year. As the beginning of spring, this equinox also signifies the end of winter, which is often one of the rockiest and uncertain periods of the year. With this shift in energy now playing a part, you may notice that you're starting to feel more upbeat and chirpy, which will likely meet to you meeting new people, starting new conversations, and finding new opportunities to grow, which is an incredibly exciting thing to experience. As the spring equinox begins, the Earth finds itself in a state of perfect balance between light and dark, night and day, warmth and cold - it's the perfect time to really focus on yourself and the things that make you happy! Thanks to the sense of balance which is now present, you're able to divert the energy that you'd usually focus towards creating balance in your life on other aspects, and this again can make this the ideal time for personal and professional growth in your life.
In scientific terms, the March equinox is the event of the Sun crossing the equator line and heading north. This event signifies the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere and after this date, the northern half of the world is tilted towards the Sun rather than away from it; this is why we are treated
to more sunshine, more hours of daylight, and warmer temperatures during the day! For the southern hemisphere, the opposite effect is felt - the days begin to get shorter, temperatures drop, and the Sun is just a little further away. In the southern half of the world, it's the start of autumn, rather than spring.
When will it happen?
The spring equinox will always occur in the month of March, however, the exact date and time can vary from year to year. In 2021, the first day of spring (the spring equinox) is on March 20th at 5:37 am. After this time, you can expect your days to start getting longer and filled with more sunshine and vitamin D, which will not only give you a little boost each morning but actually fill your body with more of the natural nutrients that it needs to make the most of the day ahead.
Are there any spiritual meanings behind it?
As we've mentioned above, the event of the vernal equinox is not just a scientific one - it's also an event with a great deal of spiritual and mental meaning that can have a huge impact on each person on the planet, so it's important that we take the time to consider this and ensure that we're making the most of the shift in energy that we're likely to feel during this period. The spring festival is traditionally the start of the harvest in years gone by, an incredibly wholesome time where farmers would plant their new plants and crops would begin to grow, which in turn allows communities to thrive and prosper over the summer and remain comfortable with enough food and money for the winter, through the winter solstice, and the back round to the spring equinox. In a more general sense, the spring equinox feels as though it makes the world just a little more beautiful - there are wonderful sunrises early in the morning, then a gorgeous sunset comes in the evening, then we'd get to repeat that cycle each day until the days begin to draw ever shorter once more in the autumn.
In astrology, each equinox and solstice holds profound meaning, with each star sign having a different reaction to the change in energy and shift in mood that the spring brings along with it.
