The autumn equinox is a mysterious time. It marks an essential passage in the process of enlightenment. It is a time of balance between day and night. Winter is a time of darkness and death. This duality between light and dark exists within humanity, and is about spiritual transformation, or alchemy. All things must die before they are born, all spiritual ascent requires descent first. We must all face and overcome our own darkness. Most of the esoteric meaning of the equinox has been lost along with any true knowledge of it. The builders of many ancient sites, such as the Great Pyramids, left the message in their architecture. This mirrors the meaning found in the cosmos. This is part of the greater design of the Universe revealing to process of spiritual awakening to humanity. There are messages coming from above. The outer drama being enacted in the heavens, was actually an inner representation of humans become spiritual. As above so below. The alchemical symbol of the Sun represents the spiritual aspect that incarnates within each person. Any darkness is intended for spiritual transformation.
