Yeah! Today is the first day of Spring!
This is the Spring Equinox. Equinox comes from Latin: aequus (equal) and nox (night).
There are two equinoxes during a year. These are the days in which the center of the sun is even with the Earth’s equator.
From now until September the days get longer; more sun, more fun, more time to get things done. (Is it just me or did that rhyme? Shoot, that’s half of a country song right there!)
The great thing about the Spring Equinox is that it signals the end of winter, and while we again didn’t have a particularly difficult winter in the South it’s good to shed clothes (that’s good any time and to any extent), spend more time outside and maybe start tanning up a bit.
The best thing about spring, though, is that it’s a time of natural transformation—of growth.
If you’ve been mulling over an action or making plans for a dramatic change now is the time to get started. Nature’s calling, answer it!
