Spring Equinox in Australia

Today is Spring Equinox in Australia.

Behold, a sacred voice is calling you.
All over the sky a sacred voice is calling you.

–Black Elk

I found this beautiful script for a Spring Equinox celebration at Paigan.org.

This is the time of Eostar, the Spring Equinox, the moment of balance of light and dark in the light part of the cycle.

The light and the dark in the South and in the North of our planet, are of equal length at this time.

Feel the balance in this moment – Earth as She is poised in relationship with the Sun.

Feel for your own balance of of light and dark within – this fertile balance of tensions.

Breathe into it. Breathe in the light, swell with it, let your breath go into the dark, stay with it. Breath in the light, swell with it.

Shift on your feet, from left to right, feel your centre … breathe it in.

In our part of the Earth, the balance is about to tip into the light. Feel the shift within you, see in your mind’s eye the energy ahead, the light expanding.

Feel the warmth of it. Breathe it in.

This is the time of Spring’s return. Warmth and growth may be sensed in the land.

The young light that we celebrated at Imbolc, has grown strong and come to balance with the dark.

Life bursts forth with new strength.

The story of Old tells us that Persephone beloved Daughter, returns from Her journey to the Underworld. Demeter stretches out Her arms – to receive and rejoice. The beloved One, the Lost One, returns with new Wisdom from the depths.

We may step into a new harmony. Where we step, wild flowers may appear; where we dance, despair may turn to hope, sorrow to joy, want to abundancne.

May our hearts open with Spring.

  1. Here in the northern hemisphere, we just had the fall equinox. With our waning sunlight, yours is waxing. And so the cycle goes.

    Blessed be! Life is good.

  2. Here we are celebrating the first day of fall. Your post makes me wish for spring to come fast though!
    Incredible, when you think of it, north-south, fall-spring, yin-yang, ….happy. happy Spring!

  3. I am so jealous that you are entering spring, while our summer has just finished and now we enter into fall! I love the cool crisp air, and the red, yellow and orange leaves, but with the changing of leaves comes the promise of winter and snow for us!

    A very happy spring to you! Its a very powerful time of the year!
    xoxo Bret

  4. I have been to a few of Glenys’s (paigan.org) seasonal celebrations – magnificent.. enjoy spring time xo
