The spring equinox is the time, when day and night are equal in length, it’s time just before days start to be longer than nights. So officially spring arrives!
Spring equinox symbolises new light, new life, new beginning, birth and fertility – it’s natural cycle of earth and life.
Spring equinox is a good time for cleansing: cleansing your body, mind, soul, your home, your wardrobe, cleansing everything, preparing yourself for a fresh start with positive attitude.
In different countries mass cleanings are taking place, where people gather together to help clean our parks, sea sides, collecting rubbish and that is such a beautiful way of celebrating Spring equinox. Other popular way of celebrating is having a walk over night in the woods (many of these are organized in East European countries), which helps to feel nature waking up and spring coming (a pair of gloves and thermos of tea will keep you warm), it’s fun to experience that in the group of people, welcoming spring.
It’s good time for planting too, in the past; blessings were given to the seeds before planting as a part of fertility celebration. Few flowers for your garden or kitchen will bring more love, right.
If you have crystals, cleanse and charge them with fresh intensions under sun and moon light. Also a good idea is to take a bit of time off for yourself and reflect on your life, write your intention down.
