The Spiritual Meaning
of the March Equinox
Each year, the March equinox marks the exact moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator from south to north, and in doing so, it declares the arrival of spring in the northern hemisphere and the beginning of autumn in the southern one.
It also marks the Aries ingress and the beginning of a new astrological year.
For those of us in the northern hemisphere, and especially those who experience four distinct seasons, spring heralds a time of birth and rebirth. For our southern neighbors, autumn is a time of reflection and transition as summer fades and winter beckons.
Although the March equinox coincides with different physical seasons depending on where one lives in the world, it brings the same spiritual season to everyone no matter which hemisphere we call home.
Each year, we experience renewal on a spiritual level as the Sun, which represents our heart and soul enters Aries, the sign of I AM, and reminds us that we have the power to initiate, create and manifest our dreams.
If you’re not yet where you want to be in life or have yet to achieve a heart-felt desire, it’s time to embrace the bold, decisive, never-say-die attitude of the Ram and make it a reality.
