The Equinox is a time to perform magic and rituals. In Persian culture, the equinox marks the beginning of the calendar year, as it historically did for all of us prior to the adoption of the Gregorian calendar in 1582. We celebrated the New Year with rituals and giving thanks for the renewal of energy.
A beautiful way to celebrate the Spring Equinox is to purchase “Sabzeh” Nowruz sprouts ( Nowruz in Farsi equals New Day) and the sprouts are symbolic of rebirth and growth. The tradition of celebrating Nowruz goes back to 550-300 years BCE . Adding the sprouts to your celebration connects us to our deep ancestral roots on the planet before many conquests and influences over humanity took over. Light your white candles, have your spouts nearby. Continue to water them, symbolizing your new growth and rebirth. Set an intention and celebrate your new beginnings!
No matter how and where you celebrate the Spring Equinox, grace, forgiveness, rebirth, love, and gratitude are the energies of the day. Remind yourself of their place in your life.
You must form the habit of living in the fourth dimension, “The World of the Wondrous.” It is the world where you do not judge by appearances.- Florence Scovel Shinn. It’s an excellent time to give thanks and love and ask yourself what you want to be doing with your life.
