Hi this is Leslie Harris, and in just over an hour, at 8:03 p.m. central time, we will experience the Autumnal Equinox.
Astronomically speaking, it is when the sun will cross the equator, going south, bringing spring to the southern hemisphere, and fall to our northern hemisphere. It is one of two days in the year when we experience equal amounts of daylight and darkness.
But many cultures see this also as a spiritual time, a time to reflect, reassess, and find balance, much like the balance between light and dark.
It’s also a time to release, just like nature is releasing leaves, flowers and seeds. What are you holding on to that doesn’t serve you? Anger, at yourself or others? Relationships? Situations? It’s time to let those go.
Take some time to connect with nature, to reflect on your life, and decide what you want to focus on, and what you want to let go of.
Have a Blessed Autumn!
