Autumnal Equinox 2010 Occurs Within Hours of Harvest Moon, Rare Phenomenon

22nd September 2010 at 11:09PM E.S.T. (8:09PM PST)-Tonight the Autumn Equinox begins with equal hours of daylight and night (at the equator). After today, the nights will get longer and perhaps give us more time for reflection.

Today is also considered the Second Harvest. We can use this time to reap the rewards of what we have worked on this past year, or season, and cut away what is no longer necessary. We can reflect upon what went out of balance (life, love, work, health, soul) and on how we can rectify that disequilibria as we move into the darker, perhaps less active, time of the year.

The Equinox reminds me about balance. I often use the change of seasons to contemplate and muse. I also spend time to quiet my mind and reenergize myself. I read that the first day of Autumn (my favorite season) is the Wiccan Thanksgiving. I give thanks to the tiny beauty in my life and the family i have created: my friends, my neighbors, my colleagues, and my loved ones near & far. I also remember those who were lost to me ~ some harvested to that Big Beyond ~ and i am grateful for them being in my life at the right time and the right place and for the right reason~sb

NASA Science News reports that starting at sunset, those in the northern hemisphere will be able to see the full Harvest Moon rising in the east as the sun sets in the west and the two bright lights mixing together will create the Super Harvest Moon. As the night goes on the vibrancy of the moon will only get brighter.
