A day of balance between dark and light (equinox is Latin for equal night) here in the northern hemisphere we are getting ready for spring. The days have been getting longer, up to now still holding more darkness than light but that is all about to change. This year, in Minnesota, we have had one of the snowiest winters on record and the ground is covered in feet of frozen white. It makes it hard to focus on the energies of spring.

The return of the sun, of warmth, of green leaves and birdsong; springtime is something everyone who deals with cold, bleak winters dreams about. It is a time of promise, change and cleansing. Spring magick can take many forms. Simply basking in the sun and taking simple enjoyment of its heat and the life it brings can be enough. A ritual bath to clear away the dark lethargy of winter can be a great idea. Pick soaps with bright citrus or floral smells to wake your mind or remind you of flowering fields. Something with exfoliation to it wakes up the skin while scrubbing away what is no longer vital. Candle meditations embrace the fire and heat of the sun and place it at the tips of your fingers.
