Its rhythm is a time of “reaping” the seeds we have sown in the past nine months of the year. Whether it is a real harvest of things planted in your garden or the harvest of intentions on your life path that you set earlier in the year. On the equinox, day and night are approximately equal length all over the world. This roughly 12-hour day and 12-hour night occurs only on the two equinox days of the year. Equinox is derived from a Latin word and means “equal night.” In scientific terms, the earth’s rotational axis is neither titled away nor towards the Sun as it is stationed above the celestial equator and marks the moment the sun crosses it

Many indigenous cultures have long recognized earth-based wisdom and understood that the four focal points of year (The Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Autumn Equinox) serve as illuminated states of an inner spiritual journey—a spiritual cycle that each individual takes within themselves.
How do you harness or channel the energy of the Fall Equinox to empower your life?
Before, I get to some practical guidance, let’s take a look at the world we live in.
Balance… Balance… Balance!
We live in a fast-paced world and often the speed of which we consume news, entertainment, social media, and otherwise, out paces a sustainable lifestyle. How do we harness the energy and make the most of our life? It is an individual answer for each of us. But first and foremost is self-care, self-love, and nurturing what you love and lights you up. Often, we feel out of sync because we are out of tune with the energy and the natural rhythms of the earth. Our internal mechanisms have not been prepared to keep up with the level of intensity as it exists today.
The Fall equinox represents a mid-harvest. Give yourself permission to take time to pause, reflect, and to look forward to where you wish to put your energy or life flow during the final three months of the year. It is giving yourself a time to celebrate your accomplishments thus far, and gain clarity to harmonize and restore and create choices that are sustainable to your lifestyle. You may want to shift your consciousness to honor the abundance the Fall Equinox brings by acknowledging your gratitude for all that you have and all that you are.
Take a Power Pause
Take Inventory by Reflecting and Receiving
Refocus Your Attention
The heart of your spiritual practice is individual as you internally create space and make room for what’s to come.
Enjoy the Fall Equinox and beyond!
