Night and day become equal unto each other as the Sun crosses the Equator from North to South. Simultaneously below the Equator, the Southern Hemisphere is welcoming their Spring Equinox, where new life is celebrated.
The Autumn Equinox sets a tone for equalizing light and shadow, and harmonizes the elements. Much like the Temperance Card, Two of Pentacles Card, and Justice Card in the Tarot, the theme here is one of balance and cooperation.
Sometimes considered the time of the Second Harvest or Full Harvest, we begin the process of storing food, reaping what we have sewn into the Earth, and preparing for the deep chilled slumber of Winter’s keep.
