September Equinox 2022 will be at 7:03 p.m. on Thursday, September 22.
The September equinox (or southward equinox) is the moment when the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator, heading southward. Due to differences between the calendar year and the tropical year, the September equinox may occur anytime from September 21 to 24. During an equinox, the amount of daylight is equal to the amount of night—something that happens only twice a year, at the spring equinox and the autumn equinox.
Spiritually speaking, fall represents the harvest time of year, a time to acknowledge growth, cycles and expansion as a natural evolution of our organic being. Our lives go through cycles of growth, harvest, death, and rebirth just as we see in nature.
This is a time to celebrate the gifts of the Earth and personal progress of yourself and others. Celebrate the little things. Acknowledge we are not the same person in each moment. Whether you can see it or not. Look back even further until you can see your changes and the changes of others. Look back at your ah-ha moments within the last 5 hrs or 5 days or even how different you are from 5 yrs ago. You are constantly changing. That’s inevitable. Do you see it? Once you do see the changes, you will see them more and more often. The smallest difference or change and the reflection on those changes is evolution. Reflection can simply be remembering and acknowledgment of what is different. It doesn’t have to be hard to find changes, it can be simple. Celebration can simply be a normal inhale and a long exhale letting go of the energy that is ready to leave. Noticing tension in your body and changing that to relaxation. Tension can be the cause of “accidents” or injury. Rigid mindsets or body tension are unhealthy to moving and flowing with life.
September 22, 2022 Reading
Divine Consciousness We are never disconnected from the innate intelligence or intuition within. We simply overlook it sometimes. The more we nourish our body with water, relaxation and peace, the closer the connection to our true self and all that is. The more we choose peace and learn to recognize when we don’t have the stillness and calm, the closer we become to experiencing our natural state.
Community We have all gone through the awkward stage of feeling out of place. Whether is has been with our family, friends, school/ work or personal relationships. Those feelings are showing us that it is time to find the people we can easily choose to be with or around. Sometimes we don’t feel like we have a choice. It is a time to find people who support you. Look around, you may already have someone in your life who is that person or a group of people. A shift in how we see those around us may just be what is needed. You may also decide it is time for a new tribe to match your own personal goals or growth.
Fear Fear is one of our greatest teachers. There can be small fears or large fears. There can be mental fears, emotional fears or physical fears. Recognizing fear, the ego trying to keep you safe at all costs even from being vulnerable is real. Physical fear, danger in imminent threats can be a good thing. It is in our ancient DNA. Mental fear can be the over thinking or creating fear where there is none. Creating fear around certain events or interactions around future events that may or may not even happen. Often keeping us in a negative mindset. Emotional fear can be abandonment or any of the other learned behaviors we may have picked up as trauma from childhood or relationships. Keep your eyes open to recognize fear that could be keeping you doubting yourself and leaving trust and courge just outside of your reach.
Empathy Emaphy is NOT only about the energy you can take on from people, places and things. Empathy is also about being open to seeing different perspectives, both sides of a story, it’s about being neutral. Choosing to diffuse rather than inflame situations. Choosing to be the alchemist. Sometimes that requires saying or doing nothing. Choosing not to engage and simply listening. Allowing people to be heard, without judgement and without advice. (Unless you are specifically asked for it) Be open and try a new approach to life.
Woman of Light You never know who you may come in contact with. Being open with stillness, even a little peice of your being, a split second is all that is needed. You can be changed forever. To feel the grace of another, no matter how big or small, will shift something inside. Open up a space. To be in the presence of something or someone so pure can be overwhelming. It can be gentle or like a shockwave. It can bring you to tears or deep sense of peace. You never know when it will happen, and you may even miss it. Only years later to remember the feeling. Grace, purity, love she is always waiting to be acknowledged but never expecting it.
Lovers Love can be felt in many ways. You will know at the depths of your being when it is pure. It can be in the devotion you have to your spiritual teacher, your God or Goddess, an act of loving kindness from another or simply witnessing this pure act. The pure love from a partner. The love we have known is often conditional. Open to feeling the love of children or pets. The pure love with limited expectations, it simply is. Spend some time contemplating the times you may have felt this love in your life, or overlooked it. You can return to that feeling any time you wish. That is the magic of feelings. Pure joy, love or bliss. The feeling is the key, not the situation.
