The Equinox is a the astrological event when we experience the same amount of daylight as nightfall. The pagans celebrated it as a time of balance. Equally as important as the two other astrological events; summer solstice and winter solstice. The summer being the peak amount of daylight experience, and the winter being the deprivation of daylight experience. As humans we revel in the celebration of highs and lows, and overlook the mundane experience of balance. Balance sits as an ideal embrace by fringe spiritual pedagogues, and the new age aimless. Balance and harmony get used as buzz words that seem nice like flowers in the spring, but rarely do we take seed, and develop some sort of consumable, sustainable, nurturing food from a garden of existence.
