What does the spring equinox really mean, though? Of course, it marks the beginning of a new season, but it represents so much more than that.

In today’s blog, we’re digging deeper into what the spring equinox is, why it matters, and some tips and tricks on how to welcome it in alignment with its purpose.

What is Spring Equinox (+Why It Matters)

The spring equinox marks the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It typically occurs around the end of March (this year it’s March 20, 2024), and on this day the sun crosses the celestial equator, resulting in nearly equal lengths of day and night worldwide. (So cool!)

The spring equinox can symbolize renewal, balance, and growth, and is a time to embrace the energy of the changing season. It’s a great time to reconnect with nature and align oneself with the rhythms of the Earth. It’s the perfect time to set new goals, improve sleep and wake times, and ground your feet to the Earth.

Overall, the spring equinox holds profound significance for those who are attuned to the world and seek to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature. It invites us to embrace the spirit of growth, transformation, and renewal as we embark on the journey of a new season.

How to Celebrate the Spring Equinox

Across cultures, the spring equinox has been celebrated as a time of joy, fertility, and new beginnings. It’s an opportunity to come together in community, celebrate the wonders of nature, and honor the cycles of life. One of the best ways to celebrate this special occasion is to gather with friends and family to enjoy the promise of a harvest.

Spring is going to bring new energy, new landscapes, and new opportunities, that much we know. Here are a few of our favorite spring equinox activities:

  • Spring cleaning
  • Setting new intentions
  • Daily grounding
  • Meditation
  • Energy work
  • Gardening
  • Painting
  • And of course, being still and relaxing with a cup of Dandy Blend
