March 20th the sun crosses the celestial equator, and we have the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere! The equinox (meaning equal-night) is a time to celebrate balance + equilibrium, so be sure to stop and reflect, checking in with your mind, body + soul today, taking time to do the necessary adjustments to get yourself and your life back in balance as well. Where do you need to cut back? Where do you need to open up? Remember that quality is better than quantity, and leaves more room for making time for rest and rejuvenation for yourself, which again will benefit those around you. Set an intention to be present in your own life; expand your awareness, explore the world, set aside quality time with your family + friends and remember to take time to laugh and have fun. Having found your balance, ideas are more easily put forth, and with the Spring Equinox being a celebration of the pagan Spring Goddess, Ostara, as well as the Astral New Year with the sun entering the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, on the day of the Spring Equinox, this is an especially potent time for intention settings and a truly magical time to plant your seeds for the future. Ostara symbolizes fertility, new dawn and new growth, and go-getter Aries is all about new beginnings. The old has been washed away, and everything on our planet and in our ♡ are once again encouraged to sprout. Harness the magic of this powerful time for new beginnings and ground yourself in love and in life, taking time to hear your souls deepest spiritual longings. Then dive into some of that fiery Aries energy and leap forward. It’s a time to be bold, it’s a time to fall in love – with yourself or someone special – and it’s a time to be fearlessly yourself and make life happen!
