Winter is basically over, peeps! Throw your parkas and scarves and long-sleeved garments out the window, cause the Spring Equinox is just around the corner and it's time for flowers blooming, birds chirping, and hopefully some glimmers of sunshine. Fine, maybe don't actually throw out your winter wardrobe (not yet, anyway), but come Mar. 20 it will in fact be spring. Every year there are two equinoxes: One in spring, and one in autumn. They mark the two days of the year when there are equal parts daylight and night, and they kick of the seasons of spring and autumn, respectively.

The start of spring is an auspicious time that can be really energetically and spiritually inspiring and invigorating. In many Pagan-based spirituality practices, this celestial event is known as Ostara. "Ostara is a time of new fire. The light and dark are in perfect balance, but the light is growing and the Sun is about to burst forth with new energy," explained Earth Witchery on its site. "It is a season of fertility and growth." Because the Spring Equinox marks the moment that the days begin getting longer, we're all going to feel the energy of hope, new life, and fresh starts.

With so much happening in our busy lives, it can be difficult to slow down and reflect on what our goals are for the coming season. Meditations for the Spring Equinox can be super helpful for checking in with yourself so you can be sure you're making the most of the celestial magic that's taking place.

Carve out a few minutes for yourself come Mar. 20 so you can take advantage of the prosperous vibes and honor the change of the seasons by doing a quick, simple meditation practice for the Spring Equinox.
