Spring Equinox copia

March is an extremely busy month astrologically.  It is the spring equinox, a new moon, and an eclipse all on March 20, 2015. It occurs when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is inclined neither away from nor toward the Sun, and, astrologically, when the Sun reaches 0° Aries. Its name is derived from Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), as night and day are about equal length at this Spring midpoint. Other names for the Spring Equinox are Alban Eilir, Gwyl Canol Gwenwynol, Lady Day, Meán Earrach, and Ostara.

The moon turns new only 14 hours after reaching lunar perigee – moon’s closest point to Earth in its orbit. Thus this moon is a supermoon – at the new phase – not visible in our sky, but having a larger-than-average effect on Earth’s oceans. Plus this new supermoon swings right in front of the equinox sun on March 20, so that the moon’s shadow falls on parts of Earth.

The feel-good factor about this day, however, is that the first official astrological day of spring hints that high temperatures are not far off. This will be good news for many, who will have a much-awaited relief from the spate of cold blasts seen in the recent weeks.

It’s important to remember that the dawning of spring has been observed for a long time in many other cultures as well. Traditions vary widely from one country to the next.  March 20 also welcomes Ostara which is celebrated in spring season as a way to honor the richness and wealth that Mother Nature has brought to humans and creatures. Spring is considered as the period of growth, happiness and love. In this time of a year, everything is woken up from winter and they are full of vitality.

As the winter ends traditionally Native American people celebrate their thanks with prayers for surviving the bitter, cold days and the struggles they had to overcome. With spring everyone begins to enjoy the bounties of the earth once more, as plants and animals show new life again. The land turns green, wildlife flourishes and people are filled with anticipation for the coming of summer, the time of harvest.

Springtime is a wonderful season to celebrate with much merriment and shared feasts, as families gather together, dancing and enjoying the gifts of the land. Just as those in ancient times find a reason to give thanks for being here another day. Do something special to honor the fact that you are still here. Celebrations and rituals are important in our spiritual walk.

It is a time to offer thanks in prayers to the Great Creator who is watching and filling those that celebrate with blessings.

Many Blessings,
Cherokee Billie

    Beautiful picture, and so,glad spring is almost here. Thank you Billie ❤

  3. Great post! I’m expecting this New Moon to be a doozey, and I’m hoping it will bring me some hoped-for changes, so I’ve reblogged it.
    Travel safe ❤

  4. Wow, that picture is B-E-A-UTIFUL!!!! Actually, they both are…. but a question: is mild anxiety, confusion and restlessness common during this?

    • With there being three major astrological events occurring, pretty much simultaneously, it could cause some people to feel anxiety and confusion. I know that you are good at doing rituals and take time out and do something special for the spring equinox. That should help you get through this better. Many blessings, Cherokee Billie

    From Cherokee Billy comes this beautifully written piece on how special tomorrow is- the first day of Spring, when the earth and animals wake from their slumber.

  6. Really beautifully written!
    I think I might have as much as a quarter of Blackfoot Indian in me, from my great-grandmother. How do I find out?

    • I appreciate your kind words. I’m glad that my articles spoke to you. Many people want to find out their heritage and Sometimes It’s difficult because many people in ancient times did not register birth and different things. All I can recommend it is contacting the Native American headquarters and see if they can direct you to someone who does genealogy. There’s always ancestry.com, which I think is pretty good. Springtime blessings, Cherokee Billie

  7. That is so Beautiful, thank you Billie as alwaays. much Loove and God Bless…

  8. And last week was the final exact Uranus Pluto square of the current series (began in 2012), which some maintain has been bringing poisons to the surface of humanity. Ready to be lanced like a boil?
