Spring Equinox- March 20, 2021
The March equinox happens on Saturday, March 20, at 5:37am EDT in the Northern hemisphere. This date marks the start of the spring season. In the Southern hemisphere, the March equinox marks the start of autumn, while the September equinox marks the start of spring. On the equinox, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world. We can now enjoy the increasing sunlight hours, with earlier dawns and later sunsets.
On the March equinox, the Sun crosses the celestial equator going south to north. It’s called the “celestial equator” because it’s an imaginary line in the sky above the earth’s equator. If you were standing at the equator, the Sun would pass directly overhead on its way north. Equinoxes are the only two times a year that the Sun rises due east and sets due west for all of us on earth.
The Spring Equinox, also referred to as Ostara, is a time of rebirth and renewal. It is a time to plant new seeds for new beginnings and plan your goals for the year. There are a number of ways you can do this, such as intention setting, building an altar, decorating, baking and cooking, planting a new plant, charging your crystals, and paying homage to the sacred feminine throughout the earth.
