“You have the opportunity to drink in this energy of Balance and allow it to transform the very atoms at the core of your being.” ~Archangel Michael via Shanta Gabriel
Happy 1st Equinox of 2014! This day is significant in that there is an equal measure of lightness and darkness (or shadow) in our Earth and Sun dance. This “outer” balance of dark/light reflects our own delicate balance of our inner light and inner darkness. And, in the northern hemisphere, the light is getting brighter and stronger day by day… building towards our Solstice in June.
How can we work consciously with these outer energies in a way that is favorable for us? For me, doing some sort of ritual to honor the light/dark balance in a simple way is my charge today. Lighting a candle on my alter in the morning with prayers and meditation and later in the dark of the evening, I will create a simple ceremony again with fire as the central element. For more ideas on rituals and ceremonies, check out Mystic Mamma’s ideas. (scroll down on that page to Rituals)
The power of clear intentions is a sure way to move forward and harness these cosmic energies. We are also in the “new year” in the astrological world, moving from Pisces, the 12th sign of the cycle into Aries, the powerful first fire sign. So, to my many astrologer/y friends and Persian friends, “Happy New Year!” To quote one of my favorite online resources for charting the annual cycles as well as wisdom of the “Mamma”: “This symbolic point of balance has been celebrated by our ancestors since the beginning of time. In cultures across our planet this period marks an initiation and symbolic integration of the forces of light and dark.”
