Autumn Equinox: Myths, Meanings, Affirmations and Energies!
Written By Expert Psychic Andi
Fall is upon us if you are in the Northern Hemisphere; spring if you're in the Southern, and that means the Equinox is here! This is a time of balance as day and night are approximately the same length. For the Fall Equinox we have appreciation for what we've been able to accomplish, but also come to know our limits and what we need to let go of. With the Spring Equinox there is an awakening to manifest our deepest goals, how we can nourish our souls, and leaving behind any doubts!
The Persephone myth is associated with the Fall Equinox she descends to the underworld to begin her time as queen and leaves her mother Demeter, goddess of the bountiful harvest; which is why the Earth becomes barren as Demeter is heartbroken at the loss of her daughter. At the Spring Equinox, Persephone emerges from the underworld and Demeter rejoices and renews the growth of the Earth.
These energies that we feel at the changing of the seasons have been prevalent throughout time as our ancestors learned to live from the land in a more physical sense. While in this day and age we don't necessarily tend to the land, we do need to support our emotional wellbeing! We can see the cycle of the seasons throughout our lives. The vitality of spring can be the excitement at the beginning of a new relationship or career path. Into summer the feeling of wanting more enthusiasm, a sense of achievements and pushing forward! Fall lets us see how far we've been able to come and what needs to be sustained. And when winter comes we allow ourselves some time to reflect and regain our resources for the new opportunities to come about with spring!
If you are experiencing the energy of the Fall Equinox you may want to take a moment to see where you are in the hustle and bustle and where you need to cut yourself a little slack!
Don't sell yourself short in your accomplishments and give yourself permission to let go of what's keeping you from finding a balance of work and fun! With the energy of the Spring Equinox this may be a great time to make a list of new ideas you wish to pursue. You can fully embrace your goals and let nothing stand in your way!
With both of the Equinoxes; if you meditate you'll want to put your attention to where you wish to bring about change. Both by acknowledging the struggles, but also by reinforcing your strengths!
