On 20th March we celebrate the Spring Equinox. This important day represents a new beginning; the dark Winter months are now over and we’re moving into the warmth of the light of Spring. 

With this bubbling of energy and blossoming of new life, we experience a renewal within ourselves too. We feel lighter than we did during the darker Winter months and have a sense of excitement about what is to come. We can see fresh possibilities and sense the potential in new ideas. It’s a beautiful time to connect with what excites you, what projects or chapters you are ready to bring into your reality.

If there are areas of your life where you feel you want change, this is a good time to act and make a difference. Lengthening days bring energy, hope and optimism. What seemed impossible in the dark months of winter can seem possible now.

Here are a few simple ways you can celebrate this day:

Wake up early - to mark the start of spring, why not wake up and enjoy seeing the sunset rise on this scared day, it’s a great way to get off on a positive note.

Have a spring clean - use this time to declutter your home and rid the space of any unwanted belongings, this will also help to declutter your mind.

Open a window - allow the smells of spring to come into your home and embrace the fresh feeling of the day, this can really lighten your mood.

Look for signs of spring - take a walk and look all around you and you’ll see nature coming to life, from birds singing to flowers blooming.

Write down new goals: the Spring Equinox is a time of new beginnings, this is a great time to write down what you want to achieve.

Light a candle - Traditional practices such as candle magic help us focus our energies on what we want and plant messages in the unconscious.

Make a spiritual focal point - Adorn the space with bright colors and plants that promote growth and healing. Place it in the sunshine to warm your heart and mind after the dark months of winter.

We encourage you to find some time on the Spring Equinox to pause and celebrate this meaningful day and shift in seasons.
