An equinox marks the sun’s position directly over the equator. Today, Mar. 20, the day will be exactly as long as the night.
Equinoxes have long held spiritual significance. The spring equinox specifically symbolizes rebirth and growth, reflected in the physical plane by the blooming of flowers and the warming of the weather.
The spring equinox also ushers us into Aries season, the start of the astrological year. Remember our blog about New Year’s Resolutions? Well, NOW is the time to implement those. Write down your goals, what habits you want to make or break, what exactly you imagine your life looking like- write it all down! The simple act of writing down what you want increases the likelihood of getting it by 42%. Let the creation energy of the equinox carry you even closer to your vision.
The new moon in Aries is also coming in hot tomorrow on Mar. 21. New moons are already perfect for manifestation and taking initiative- this one is going to be especially powerful because of its close tie to the equinox. Aries is archetypally the warrior, the pioneer, and the ram. This sign is the expression of individuality at its finest and arguably the most passionate of the twelve zodiacs. You can tap into the fierce energy of Aries while you’re thinking about what dreams you want to bring into your reality.
