Spring Equinox Yoga
The Alchemy of the Spring Equinox
"This is a celebration of balance and union between the Light and Dark cycles of the year, between the Sun and the Moon, between Yang and Yin, Fire and Water. From this dynamic joining of opposites comes new life, transformation and manifestation.
From here to the Midsummer Solstice, the days will lengthen as the Sun returns, bring increasing strength and warmth, and the nights will shorten. This is the beginning of the growing period, the season of manifestation. It is a time for unions of all kinds, for fertility and birth. Out of Union comes new life. This is the natural alchemy of Union inherent in all Life on Earth at this time.
Here at the Spring Equinox, the alchemy lies in the transference of energy from the inside to the outside, from Spirit into Matter. What is within is flowing towards manifestation. Across the wheel at the Autumn Equinox the alchemy lies in the transference of energy from Matter into Spirit, taking the essence of what we have manifested back inside for assimilation and understanding. This delightful balance of our inner and outer worlds flows through our lives as each Equinox helps us to be aware of the natural movement and direction of the cycle.
