Happy Spring Equinox!
Also known as the Vernal Equinox, the Spring Equinox happens every year in March for us in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere the Equinoxes are reversed, with March marking the Autumnal Equinox and September marking the Vernal Equinox.
On the two Equinoxes the Sun shines directly on the equator, so day and night are nearly the exact same length.
This year, the Spring Equinox falls on: Wednesday, March 20th 2019. The exact time it will happen varies depending on where you live, but the March Equinox in Universal Coordinated Time is @ 21:58 UTC (4:58 p.m. Central Daylight Time).
For us, this means our days are getting longer and our nights are getting shorter as we move into Summer. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, days will be getting shorter as they move into Winter.
What Does That Mean For You?
This is a time for growth, rebirth, and new starts. As our days are long and full of sunlight, follow suit with the plants and flowers around you and allow yourself to bloom! This is the perfect time of year to try a new hobby, start a new endeavor, and turn your plans into action. The beginning of Spring may bring a new energy to your life, and maybe even a renewed sense of purpose.
There’s also a full moon tonight! The full moon will occur just a few hours after the March Equinox, around 9:40 p.m. CDT, and will be the final in a series of three supermoons. Once again, this is another astrological marker for renewal and new beginnings! All signs are pointing to this- It’s time to start afresh.
What is the Spring Equinox going to awaken in you?
