Smells like Autumn Spirit: The beauty of the autumn equinox.


As a Libra sun and moon I have to talk about what is the beauty of the autumn equinox. The start of Libra and the start of the harvest, Mabon. Even as the colder months are approaching, you can feel Aphrodite‘s love and warmth glow through every beautiful red, orange or golden leaf that falls to the ground.

So, in an ode to fall, on this Autumn Equinox, let’s chat about:

  • What is the Autumn Equinox?

  • The spiritual, cosmic meaning of this Equinox

  • What it means for you & and your life

  • Fall Equinox crystals

What is the autumn equinox?


In 2021, the autumnal equinox—also called the September equinox or fall equinox—arrives on Wednesday, September 22. This date marks the start of fall in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere.


The spiritual, cosmic meaning of this Equinox


At a deeper spiritual level, The Equinox is traditionally considered a time of transition, contemplation, gratitude, and a fresh start. As we enjoy the results of the work we have done so far, we also have the chance to let go of what we no longer want to bring with us and start a new cycle of growth. An energetic portal opens, giving us the opportunity to align with the cosmic flow and make significant changes in our lives. The Fall Equinox also signifies abundance – we're harvesting what we've sown over the spring and summer months. Long ago, that would've meant crops to store for the winter. Now, it means the emotional, spiritual, and intellectual progress we've made.


What it means for you & and your life


The Autumnal Equinox represents a time of harvest that inaugurates the preparation for wintertime and the colder months. We are entering an introspective and reflective phase: we are encouraged to cultivate gratitude, to appreciate the progress we have done, and shift our focus within to integrate the experiences we have had. This is the time of year to go within and empty out space, composting our old ideas and using the energy they hold to make new and fertile soil for new creativity and matured visions.
