Spring Equinox

Definition of Spring Equinox

The spring equinox is the time when, for the northern hemisphere, the day and the night are of equal length. This is when the Sun travels from north to south across the celestial equator, and it ushers in the first day of spring.

It marks one of the quarter days in the calendars of many traditions, with the other quarter days being the summer solstice (or midsummer), the vernal or autumnal equinox and the winter solstice (also called midwinter).

It’s interesting to note that the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere is the autumnal equinox in the winter hemisphere, and vice versa.

TERM OF THE DAY

Number 3

3 is one of the first more complex numbers. It takes the independence of 1 and the duality of 2 and blends them into a temperamental energy with a personality all its own. 3 is an enigma; engaging yet demanding, alluring yet challenging, demure yet feisty, friendly yet moody, and kind but with one monster of a temper.
