“Notice that autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.”
-Friedrich Nietzsche, German Philosopher
The Autumn Equinox 2022 brings forth a captivating astronomical event with deep spiritual significance. As we embrace the cool breeze, witness the falling leaves, and appreciate the beauty of letting go, we connect with the profound meaning behind this celestial phenomenon. The Autumn Equinox marks the moment when the sun aligns directly above the equator, bringing a balanced distribution of light to the southern and northern hemispheres.
A celebration of the Autumnal Equinox is a celebration of your connection with yourself, your inner Magician, and your connection with the mighty Four Elements: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire.
But before that, in today’s time and date, who do we call a Magician?
Throughout history, a Magician has been perceived as someone with incredible skills and powers to change reality. But, it is important (and truthful) to realize that all of us hold these powers.
All of us have the ability to transform our reality. And, we can access these powers by deeply connecting with the Four Elements. Magic is within all of us, waiting to be accessed.
Can you feel it within you?
Autumn Equinox is a Celebration of your Inner Magic
Autumn Equinox is an important time to give thanks to the Mother Goddess (a goddess who represents motherhood, fertility, creation, and destruction) and the Earth for her gifts.
The occasion is a time of balance between darkness and light and life and death. On one hand, we celebrate the reaped harvest, and on the other, we recognize that the leaves are falling and the soil is dying.
The natural cycle of birth and death strikes us more than ever and we see the beauty and healing in both. These dual events give us the opportunity to seek balance within ourselves. We can balance our own darkness: anger, envy, suppression, etc. with our light: compassion, forgiveness, and love.
Celebrate Autumn Equinox 2022 With Practical Spiritual Tools:
1. Invite the values of Balance and Harmony
Around the Autumn Equinox, Libra enters the Sun. Libra stands tall for beauty, harmony, and justice.
What can you do: Reflect on what needs balance in your life. Is it the balance between your Spirituality and your Material Life that you need? Or is it the work and personal life balance that you are trying to strike?
Go all in. Script a balanced life in your journal. Focus on the details. Manifest balance and harmony with your favorite manifestation tools. Work with salt to rid yourself of all that is no longer needed.
2. Perform a Gratitude Ritual
We have the perfect autumn equinox ritual for you: the ‘Gratitude Ritual’. Pay thanks to all of the Four Elements for helping you survive and thrive. Pay thanks to your deities, your ancestors, and your gurus.
What you can do: Go all unique with your Gratitude Rituals, but if you are looking for ideas, here’s one. Gather representations of the Four Elements. In their presence, meditate and pray with the intention of gratitude.
Pour some water into a container, light a candle to invite the Fire Element, burn some incense for the Air Element, and gather your crystals for the Earth Element. Some herbs or a house plant will also do the trick to symbolize the Earth Element.
Let the Elements cleanse you, ground you, and strengthen your connection with the Universe.
3. Enhance your Intuitive and Spiritual practices:
Which Spiritual Practices call out to you? Is it working with herbs or crystals? Spells or rituals? Psychic or Mediumship abilities? Or is it Healing? Go where you feel called.
What you can do: Study about your calling. Experiment with it. Find your main gift. Deepen your practice in it. Take workshops and gather resources on it.
If you have experience in Automatic Writing, this is a great occasion to practice it and connect with your Spirit Guides.
Needless to say, you WILL be creating Magic!
4. Set an Altar for your Spiritual practices or bring changes to your existing ones:
Your Altar is a physical representation of your Spirituality. What better time to set one than the Autumn Equinox 2022?
What you can do: Embellish it with what you work with: crystals, journals, runes, tarot decks, spell books, deities, candles, and what have you. Add a representation of one thing you are grateful for and one thing you want to invite/integrate into your life.
Please remember that your Altar doesn’t have to be big and full. It can be as simple as a small space with nothing but a candle and your journal. You do you!
We wish you a magical and insightful Autumn Equinox 2022. Keep shining your Magical Powers. The world needs it.
