One of the biggest benefits I see for tuning into our planet’s natural rhythms through astrology is this…
There are built-in moments every day, month, and year that even just a cursory acknowledgment of, can bring richness, meaning and momentum to your life.
And we have a BIG opportunity to do this, later this week.
In our Inner Circle Community, we commemorate each new Lunar Cycle with a New Moon Intention Setting Ceremony.
At the end of these ceremonies, I invite any members who feel called, to come on screen and share their reflections. I am continuously moved by them…
Something that came up repeatedly last week, was how grateful people are for the opportunity to connect rhythmically and in community, because it provides an anchor they can depend on, no matter how crazy life gets.
Hundreds of us gather monthly to do this… but you can incorporate “anchor points” in your life in effortless ways. It can be as simple as…
Paying attention to the sunrise, which provides an opportunity to begin anew, and the sunset, which brings an opportunity to reflect on the day…
Acknowledging the monthly New Moon as a reset and regroup point…
And a particularly impactful practice is to acknowledge the Equinoxes and Solstices every 90 days, which mark the beginning of each season.
You can use this time to review the previous season and prepare for the next.
It’s interesting, I read a lot of leadership and entrepreneurial books to help me grow in my role here at Astrology Hub.
And the consensus seems to be, from researchers who have no connection with Astrology or this idea of “natural rhythms,” that 90 days is the optimal timeframe to use for sustained, long-term achievement and momentum.
They say this timeframe is long enough to actually accomplish things and short enough so we don’t burn out.
I always get a kick when worlds collide this way… the business research confirming what those of us who ride the cosmic energies already know!
It’s why the Equinox this Friday/Saturday (when the light of the day and the dark of the night are in equal balance) is the perfect moment to reflect on the season that we just ended and look forward to the next.
To do this, you can take a simple moment to reflect…
What worked? What didn’t? What did you learn? What did you accomplish? What did you let go of? What are you most proud of?
And look forward to this final season of the calendar year.
What are you hoping to accomplish? What 90-day goals or intentions can you set for yourself? What will you need to let go of in order to be successful? What intentions did you have at the beginning of 2023 that you need to refocus on in order to accomplish what you committed to?
Finally, you can very simply ritualize this to make it a little more “sticky,” marking the ending of a chapter and the beginning of a new one…
Being in Hawaii, the seasons aren’t as obvious, so I always do little things to “bring the seasons to us.”
I have different wreaths I hang on the door, a new set of placemats for the table, and I set out candles with colors and scents that match the season.
My daughters and I have also started keeping a “gratitude jar”… and we’re reading the gratitude notes we’ve written throughout the season at the Equinoxes and Solstices.
Cameron Allen, our Weekly Weather astrologer talks about the Equinox being the perfect time to do a “restorative cleanse… ”
This could be another way for you to commemorate this pivot point in time… out with the old and in with the new (for your body!)
What you choose to do can be as simple or elaborate as you want…
It’s the act of acknowledgment and reflection that creates the ripple effect in your life.
And when you tune into these 4 points per year continuously, you’ll see the beautiful tapestry they weave!
Do you have any rituals you like to do at the Equinox? I’d love to hear! We can create a database of great ideas and I’m happy to continue sharing ideas with you as we go through these points throughout the year.
Simply reply to this email and share your favorite things to do to mark the changing of the seasons.
With all of this said, Happy Equinox!
May it be the beginning of a beautiful chapter ahead…
And the closing of a chapter you’re ready to end.
