Spring Equinox (Alban Eilir)

Day and night are of equal length all over the world. In the Northern Hemisphere we still celebrate it as the first day of spring. The days are getting longer and warmer now, and the nights shorter. This is the festival of balance: the balance of light and dark, the balance of the Sun’s active energy in the day and the Moon’s receptive energy at night, the balance of the inner world and outer world, the balance of the conscious Fire energy with the forces of the watery unconscious. Here at the Equinox, we can look at the work towards this balance within ourselves. This will bring change and healing as we move forwards into new understanding and new actions.
