The Autumn Equinox is a significant time of year to honor the harvest. Whether that be a harvest of the things you physically planted or the harvest of your spiritual, emotional, and mental work and intentions for your life path and healing that you set for yourself.
ancient cultures perceived a powerful deeper message for humanity in the cycles of life and nature and in the changing seasons. Indigenous cultures recognized elemental wisdom and understood that the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Autumn Equinox; illuminated stages of an inner spiritual journey – a spiritual cycle that the individual takes within themselves. They often celebrated these cycles.
The autumn equinox arrives on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. Spiritually speaking, fall represents the Harvest time of year, a time to acknowledge growth and expansion within our beings. We honor the cycles of our lives and the journey we are on.
On the Fall Equinox you may want to honor all that you have in your life and shift your consciousness from one of something you are fearful or avoidant of to stepping into courage to expand into a space of truth and authenticity. This will give us space as we head to the winter solstice to rest and grow into this space of truth to step fully into it in the spring equinox and summer solstice. Honor the autumn equinox today through a small ritual or ceremony. Such as lighting a candle, giving thanks, and speaking your gratitude for all that you are.
