Women's Gathering: Celebrating the Spring Equinox

Come and celebrate the Spring (Vernal) Equinox with us.

 

Did you know you can balance a raw egg on one end at the exact moment of the Spring Equinox because of the change in the earth tilt? The exact moment this year is Wednesday, March 20, at 4:58pm. Try it to see if it works.

 

The hours of light and dark are equal on this day. In the days that follow, the hours of light grow longer. This is a time of rebirth and new beginnings. Eggs have been a symbol of renewed life and fertility; hares (rabbits) have been a symbol of fertility and rebirth since ancient times.

 

We will be participating in an event with eggs. These eggs will hold a secret that will be revealed to the holder of that particular egg when the time is right.  

 

The color that represents the Spring Equinox is red, so wear red or shades of red if you wish.

 

What to bring:

  • Yourself!
  • Drum or rattle if you wish
  • Simple food to share
  • An item to place in the center of the circle that represents the Spring Equinox or
  • An item that is important to you. (The items will be returned to you.)
