Spring Equinox 2018: Freshen Up That Aura!
You know the old saying “spring cleaning”? There is some real truth to this, as the spring equinox is all about cleaning the old stagnant energy. It’s all about awareness in your openness, and finding balance in our lives. This is a sacred time, where twice a year the sun aligns to give us equal hours of night and day. Ancient cultures saw these celestial movements as deep correlations of a reflection of spiritual journey that the earth is bringing into essence. There is a direct shift in energy, creating space for new and exciting opportunities in your life. If you have been waiting for the perfect time to clear out negative or unnecessary energy, today is your day! Things that have been held back or stagnant in your life will also begin to shift as a new chapter is beginning for all of us. Just as the seasons change, now externally to internally we will feel the powerful and spiritual effects of this energy upon us. This is due to the fact that on the March Equinox, the Sun moves into the first constellation of Aries. The astrological sign of Aries is a great start to help all of us in creating the courage and initiative to move forward in our lives and go after what we want! Aries is all about yourself image, how you see yourself and how you want others to see you.
Plant the seeds right now for whatever you want to manifest. Watch as your thoughts and actions water those seeds. At this time, Mother Nature is giving us extra fuel and guidance to help us on our paths. Moving forward this year is all about the oneness, focusing on grounding our bodies and creating a stable foundation to grow. It is all about the growth of those seeds planted, being secure in your beliefs and truths. Don’t dig up what you have now planted, as each of our journeys may not be easy – but it will create wonderful opportunities, embracing the positive energy infused with this swift vibrational shift that is occurring all around us. This symbolism is deeply rooted in the changing of seasons, representing the cycle of life, death, and rebirth. This equinox brings rebirth into your life, so take this energy and create your most wonderful version of your life.
So you may be wondering, how can you make the most out of this divine time with the spring equinox? One of my favorite things to do is a ritual where you can use crystals, sage, and write down some intentions. What you want to do is write out your intentions first, things that you want to start in this new chapter. You will then sage your room or house with the intention of clearing out all negative and unnecessary energy that is in your space. You can even sage yourself! Put out the sage stick safely on a plate (not plastic) or even outside in the dirt! At this point set up your crystals as you get ready to say your intentions out loud! Some ideas would be to put crystals around you in a circle as you sit or stand, or build a crystal grid. Then you want to say your intentions so the universe hears them and begins to you manifest them. Check out all of our clearing and cleansing tools here!
