The Vernal equinox arrives at 1:14am Tuesday March 20th heralding the first day of Spring. The Latin meaning of equinox is “equal night” Simply put, this is when the earth’s axis is neither tilted toward nor away from the sun and there are equal hours of daylight and night. Although in the Northern hemisphere, this happens a few days before the equinox date. Either way, it means that it is a time of new beginnings; a time to celebrate the Earth’s rebirth of flora and fauna; a time to connect with nature. Make your celebration simple and special this day. Try sowing some seeds, taking a walk or enjoying a sunrise yoga session. Indulge in some healthy early spring greens for an added treat. But most of all, enjoy the 12 plus hours of sunshine.
