Welcome to this site specifically dedicated to the Equinoxes and Solstices. Every three months I produce a write-up for the current equinox or solstice. I primarily draw them up through a combination of astrology, meditation, traditional and seasonal observations.

Four times a year the seasons change at the Equinoxes and Solstices. Looking at what this season means to you, what is happening in nature and the environment can be helpful in understanding how individually we fit into the bigger picture.

There can be a sense of being in alignment with the natural rhythm of the Earth and this in turn can help us maintain a sense of balance when life appears to be turbulent. Meditations and self-care tools can be found on the Meditation Page.

The most current write-up is on this page and previous one is on the Equinoxces/Solstices page and the drop down pages in that section. The previous one on the main page and the others filed in Equinoxes or Solstices.

Spring Equinox 2017

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you, the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world - Harriet Tubman, abolitionist.

Like many Equinoxes, this can be a time of weather squalls. To make changes, we need to stay focussed whatever is going on around us and that is not always easy. At the beginning of this Equinox, it is a good time to allow healing to take place and meditate on our dream, vision for the future. Part of this meditation could be around differing values from others and interestingly identifying differing values within ourselves.

This can be a heady three months which can include irrational thinking and high passions leading to risk taking and poor boundaries. One of the paradoxes will be, on the one hand, a sense of adventure and creativity and, on the other, a sense of reserve and caution. This can be interpreted positively as "pause and breathe" before taking any action. We need to slowly put our vision into place and at the same time allow space for adjustment. A bit like sewing seeds, allowing room for growth and those lovely surprises.

In our enthusiasm and opportunities to put our vision into action, we may become too honest and plain speaking, like the squalls. This, in turn, could lead to being insensitive to other people's feelings and a distorted sense of power. There is also a challenge that situations and people may not be what they initially appear to be. Patience and being circumspect will serve us well. A true vision is usually collaborative and personal. Bringing about change, nurturing our resources personally, within our "families" and within our communities is what this Equinox is about.

The Spring Equinox is also about joy and wonder, watching everything come to life ...
