What is this special tradition- Autumn Equinox? Here is everything you need to know.

Everyone is aware of Autumn Equinox, whether it be Mayans, Druids, Astronomers, meteorologists, or the Anishinabe. And for those who do not know, it is the time at which the sun begins to fade and we have lesser sunlight and longer autumn and the time for winter nights start.


On September 22, 9:30 – 10:21 am the Autumn Equinox is set to begin. Thus, the fall will begin in the northern hemisphere whereas, in the southern Hemisphere it’ll be spring. Equinox actually means equal night in Latin. Thus, the northern hemisphere will be experiencing 12 hours day and 12 hours night. While this thing seems pretty normal but it happens only twice, once during the Spring/Summer Equinox and Autumn/Winter Equinox.

However, it is not the time of actual winter when people feels cold. The weather will just be quite pleasant.


According to Google, if we look into a deeper level, as per the conscious remainder blog the equinox is something like a thought that could be represented. We could consider it as a period of troublesome situation before entering the light from the dark or the struggle between life and death. Thus, there are a lot of things we can metaphorically compare to with Autumn equinox.

As mentioned above, the day and nights are equal during this equinox thus, it could be understood as the sun’s journey to actually get at that place and this ultimately is significant to the universe’s journey.


Thus, we get to learn that we should own the direction we are heading towards and continuously try to bring balance in our lives. It would be nowhere wrong to say that the mother nature tries to make us learn a lot of things just with the change in seasons.
