All of us here at The Spiritual Sun wanted to wish everyone a very happy equinox, which is coming up on Wednesday, March 20th at 9:59 PM UTC.

Whether you’re celebrating in the spring in the Northern Hemisphere or the fall in the Southern Hemisphere, we hope it is a very peaceful, reflective and inspiring time.

The equinoxes are a wonderful time for spiritual practice, inner reflection, and celebration, and to tap into the deeper spiritual meaning behind this time of year just as the ancient practitioners of the Religion of the Sun did. They expressed the significance of the equinoxes within many of their ancient texts and mythology, their spiritual practices, and in the ancient sacred sites they created to align with incredible precision to the equinoxes, many of which were used for celebrating them.

The ancient practitioners of the Religion of the Sun recognized the equinoxes as representing specific stages along the path of the spiritual sun, a process also known as self-realization, salvation or enlightenment in various traditions. They understood them as a time to struggle against one’s own inner darkness to attain the light by delving deeper into uncovering, understanding and removing undesirable inner states, such as anger, negativity, fear, jealousy or greed, in order to gain inner peace, wisdom, spiritual faculties and higher states of consciousness instead.

The equinoxes can be celebrated in many ways, such as attending a gathering with others, visiting an ancient site, creating a sacred space to celebrate in, or by just observing the sunrise or sunset in a quiet place and exploring spiritual practices or singing related mantras or music.
