The March equinox, also called the Vernal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, marks the beginning of the spring season in the Northern Hemisphere and the autumn season in the Southern Hemisphere. It marks the sun's crossing above the Earth's equator, moving from south to north, meaning warmer, brighter days are ahead - marvellous!
As we slowly wake up from our long, dark Winter hibernation, the March Vernal equinox is the perfect time to let go of the old and start manifesting a brighter future! What are you going to let go of and what do you want your life to look like moving forward?
In Greek mythology, the goddess Persephone rises from the underworld this time of year to reunite with her mother Demeter, and in doing so, she brings springtime to the earth.
From a spiritual point of view, the Vernal Equinox is the official start of astronomical Spring. There are only two times of the year when the Earth's axis is tilted neither toward nor away from the sun, resulting in a nearly equal amount of daylight and darkness at all latitudes, the March equinox being one of them.
In an extract taken from the March ‘22 edition of Vogue magazine, Wiccan High Priestess, Vivianne Crowley shares her guide to celebrating the Spring Equinox.
