Equinoxes happen every year on approximately March 20th and September 21nd, when the Sun’s rays shine directly on the Equator.
During these two points of the year, the tilt of the Earth in its rotational orbit is in a straight alignment with the Sun. The sun crosses the celestial equator and we experience balanced day and night, and light and dark.
With this, there is an incredible balance created, and all over the planet, day and night are approximately equal. Masculine and feminine are balanced, and the playing field is level for all.
Depending on what Hemisphere you’re in, and the time of year, the Equinox marks the entrance into either Spring or Autumn.
With the Spring Equinox, the light of day begins to grow longer heading towards the Summer Solstice. With the Autumn Equinox, the days begin to grow shorter heading towards Winter.
The Spiritual Significance of the Equinoxes
The Equinox is a powerful time to tap into the wisdom of the Earth, the light of the Sun, and your profound connection with Source, and the entire Cosmos.
“In the Yogic tradition, the Equinox is seen as a day when one has the best possibilities of transcending the limitations and compulsions of one’s physical longings.” ~Sadhguru
Ancient cultures and traditions around the world honored the cycle of the seasons, placing a key emphasis on these turning points of Solstices and Equinoxes.
The entire journey the Earth makes around the Sun represents the cycles of light and darkness, as well as death, life, and rebirth.
Equinox Energy is An Ascension Trigger
The Equinox energy is essentially an ascension trigger; for humanity and the planet!
With each passing Equinox, a new wave of balance, light and an opportunity to transcend illusion and step into more of our authentic truth and soul light emerges.
“There is an opening, an energy gate, and there will be more. This is a part of restoring the divine blueprint for your world… Peaking on the progressing equinoxes, the crystalline energies that have lain dormant for so long are being activated.” ~Archangel Metatron

You don’t have to consciously tune into the Equinox energies and consciously integrate them into your life, but there is so much power in doing so!
During the equinox, the crystalline energy of light will be available for you to download, by tuning into your heart, allowing… and when you do a divine realignment, cleanse, and connection to your path and life’s purpose will occur.
This is a powerful and sacred time for you to identify the intentions you truly desire to manifest in your physical life on Earth, and on your spiritual ascension path.
Let go of self-imposed limitations, doubts, and fears, and allow yourself to imagine being truly connected to your true power, light, and ability to create blessings, joy, and love in your life.
What have you wanted in life and not believed to be possible or dared to go after?
Now is the time to look within and to remember your authentic desires… And then to plant new seeds and ideas about what is possible for you in this life.
Each Equinox and Solstice in procession continues to build and increase in frequency.
Avoid being overwhelmed by this energy which can feel intense at times. It’s not the new levels of light that feel intense, but rather the release and letting go of the old. Intensity comes when we hold onto the past instead of freely letting it go.
Release into the light, return to love, and ride the Equinox waves of light and transformational change on the planet.
Here is a powerful Equinox channeled meditation to support you on and around the time of the Equinox, whether that happens to be Spring or Autumn.
I’ve also written about the unique crystalline influx of ascension energy on 2017 Autumn Equinox… Called the Particle Convergence.
What Is the Difference Between the Spring and Fall Equinox?
Spring Equinox Meaning
Ah, spring! This season brings increased daylight, warming temperatures, and the visual rebirth of the flora and fauna of the Earth. Green buds begin to appear, birds chirp and flowers bloom… Growth and renewal are in the air.
Astrologically, this is the beginning of the tropical new year. It is a powerful time to reconsider what goals or wishes you would like to manifest in the coming days.
Spring cleaning is supported now, so let go of all that no longer serves you… spiritually, mentally, and physically! Let go, relax, and allow yourself to flow with the natural rhythm of the Earth around you.
The Spring Equinox is Mother Earth’s celebration of rebirth. Let the increased light bring inspiration to your spirit and your heart. Give yourself permission to celebrate this now! This is a time of balance and harmony. A moment of respite as the sun is centered between Northern and Southern Hemisphere and centered between earth and sky. This creates a sacred cross, offering to balance and harmonizing energy for our planet and for humanity.
This energy serves you. Tune into your heart… and to the awareness that you are connected to all that is. From this space, you have all that you need to heal, to grow… to witness miracles in your life.
Autumn Equinox Meaning
It is with the Autumn Equinox that we begin to prepare for the darkness of winter that is to come. From this point, days now begin to grow shorter and nights get longer.
While this Equinox marks the point of diminishing sunlight, it is also a time of harvest where we celebrate all that has come to fruition in the bright light of summer.
It’s a time of facing our inner shadow, and the concepts of death, void, and blackness.
The Autumn Equinox is a powerful time to tune into gratitude, reflection and to prepare for winter where the beautiful opportunity to journey inward emerges from the cold and dark.
With Autumn Equinox, it’s a beautiful time to honor how far you’ve come and return to balance and presence before continuing onward in the journey through life.

Whether Spring or Fall, the balanced time on and around the Equinox aims to assist you in balancing your own life with the true desires of your heart. Now is the time to take inventory of where you have been, and where you are going. You are supported now in breaking free from any remaining chains that have hindered or blocked your growth.
Now is the time to take inventory of where you have been, and where you are going. You are supported now in breaking free from any remaining chains that have hindered or blocked your growth and stepping into a new level of your highest authenticity and soul light.
One of the key ways to support yourself in making this alignment is regular meditation, where you create coherence with your heart and the higher levels of light and Divine love.
