This coming weekend we flow into our Spring / Autumn Equinox. On the Equinox, night & day are close to being the same length (approx 12 hours).
The Equinox is a time of stillness, a space between worlds, a glimpse of what is possible when we open our hearts and come together in a grander version of our selves, and grander version of each other… and ultimately discover we are better together.
This coming weekend as you connect with the energy of our Equinox, invite miracles into your life & visualise rising up to your heartfelt greatness.
It is late here on Friday afternoon, but as the day closed on our International Day of Peace (21st Sept)… I shared on my IGTV (InstagramTV) Channel some of my reflections on our upcoming weekend Equinox ahead of next weeks Full Moon in Libra.
Happy Weekend Equinox ????

Each year as the Sun enters Libra toward the end of September we have the Spring Equinox (Southern Hemisphere) and the Autumn Equinox (Northern Hemisphere).
As day & night are close to equal length on the Equinox, the Equinox represents our place of transition, that ‘moment’ between the in & out breath, the space between our thoughts/words, the eternal stillness that is present in the simplicity of the present moment.
The Equinox helps us find that stillness, that place of unity, that eternal space that exists within us. It helps us to find, embrace and become that balance in our lives – balance of the Masculine/Feminine, balance of the Soul/Ego, balance of the Being/Doing, balance of Heaven/Earth and the balance of Spirit/Matter.
Here are some suggestions to help you connect with the energy and celebrate the sacred potential of our September Equinox:
Cleaning – Clean your house, your office, your meditation space, your closet… make space for a fusion of order & balance. Clutter, unnecessary ‘stuff’ clogs up your life physically/energetically. Space is need for a rhythm of balance & harmony for flow with Grace & Ease in your life.
Detox – At the change of Seasons (hence the September Equinox) I enjoy starting a detox. It is my way of preparing my body for a shift in gears, a letting go of the last season, and my way of welcoming in the new. You could do a juice fast for a day, a week… or maybe just eat a little LIGHTer on the Equinox as your way of gifting more LIGHT into your life as you kick off a new cycle of Spring or Autumn.
Journal / Vision Board – In addition to my detox, I also enjoy spending a little time on the Equinox writing & drawing in my journal… and on occasion I may also include some photos of things that I LOVE. This process helps me to feel into the freshness of the new Season, what do I wish to invite into my life (as well as what do i wish to let go of)… that will ultimately bring more balance, harmony, joy & vitality over coming months.
Rhythm & Harmony – Find space this weekend and with wonderment & curiosity connect with the balance & harmony of rhythm in your life. You could meditate on your breath – focussing on the in & out breath…. and the expansive ONENESS of the space between the breath. Walk in nature and feel the rhythms of the natural world – how the songs of the birds, the wind in the leaves & ripples of sunlight on the leaves all harmonically create a symphony of life around you. Sit by the ocean and tune into the rhythms of the waves – particularly the space between the wave coming in and the flow of the wave going out. Or even wake up early to watch the Sunsrise and later in the day watch the Sunset and feel the expansive ONENESS of the cycles of life both around and through you.
From my Heart, have a joyous weekend Equinox of miracles, healing & pure ecstasy through the ONENESS of DIVINE LOVE.
