Experience The Perfect Balance On Autumnal Equinox 2020

Let us witness a beautiful phenomenon of the planet Sun descending its heat and the night ascending to freeze. As the sky darkens, the hues of the space change rapidly in front of our eyes, and we experience the hot days of summer coming to a beautiful end in the northern hemisphere. 

The universe is filled with tremendous treasures, surprises and wonder! A little tilt from its axis and a new flavour is embraced by the Earth. One such change in season is the Equinox. This day marks the day and night to be of exactly equal length. The Sun intersects with the celestial equator. This time, if it proceeds to the North direction, it refers to the occurrence of Spring Equinox. Whereas, an advancement towards the South direction means Autumn Equinox.

What Does Autumnal Equinox Mean For Us?

The Autumnal Equinox would help bring back the needed balance in one’s life. This can actually give you all a fresh air of relaxation. The Sun is going to enter the Libra zodiac sign on the 22nd of September. This Air sign is the eternal seeker and bringer of harmony and balance, as per Astrology. So this occurrence of the Equinox and movement of the Sun in Libra would give us a nudge about the aims and lessons we began at the time of March Equinox.

The Autumnal Equinox definition portrays an equal day and night. This offers an additional vibrancy that we can use to work on those areas of life which are imbalanced. The Equinox is the start of a new season in Astrology. As one season heads towards another one, it indicates the transformation in an individual’s vibes. This helps us concentrate on keeping the energies steady in life. 

Autumnal Equinox Meaning And Facts

Being an astronomical phenomenon that occurs during Spring and Autumn every year, the Equinox is a time when the Earth's axis is neither tilted towards nor away from the Sun. During this, the slope of the Earth is 0° (in accordance with the Sun), and this is the reason that the days and nights are nearly equal on this day.

  • The Northern part enjoys Spring in March. So the Equinox in this month is known as Vernal Equinox and Spring Equinox. This time, it marks the Autumn in the Southern part. Hence, this March Equinox is known as Autumnal Equinox and Fall Equinox. 
  • Therefore, the March Equinox offers Springtime in countries like India, UK, USA, Canada, Russia, and China. Whereas it gives Autumn time to regions like Australia, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand and South Africa experience.
  • Similarly, the Northern part witnesses the Autumn season in September, and hence, the September Equinox is known as Autumnal Equinox and Fall Equinox. Whereas the Southern part experiences the Spring, and hence, here the September Equinox is known as Vernal Equinox and Spring Equinox. 
  • So during September Equinox, it is the time of Autumn in regions of India, UK, USA, Canada, Russia, and China. While, it is the time of Spring in Australia, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, and South Africa.

With the upcoming Autumn Equinox, collect the energy and fortune to give your best towards the betterment of your life. May the Equinox this time bring immense luck, balance, joy, and abundance for everyone!
