Equinox – Equal Night Day
Today, September 22, the summer of 2016 is officially over in the northern hemisphere, and winter is officially over in the southern hemisphere. We mark this astronomically, as the apparent motion of the sun (as shown by the Earth’s orbit) crosses the celestial equator moving south.

Times like these are important, if not only to remind us that we are actually living on a big round rock, going around a large ball of fire at close to 70,000 mph. Usually, any astrology class I teach begins with this astronomical truth.s1-17

This “seasonal zodiac” is a zodiac mainly used in Western astrology. It has no connection to the constellations in the sky that we use in Vedic astrology. But has been, and still is, a vital part of living on earth, and in harmony with the cycles of nature.

On these equinox days, there’s an equal amount of sunlight in the northern and southern hemispheres. It also marks the day when there will be less light in one hemisphere or the other for the next six months. On the September equinox we begin a cycle with less sunshine in the northern hemisphere and more sunshine in the southern hemisphere for the next six months.

Not until the April equinox will there be more sunlight in the northern hemisphere again. The darkest day in the northern hemisphere will be on the first day of winter, the winter solstice. The solstice points mark the extremes of light in each hemisphere.

Hot Fun in The Summertime – Sly and the Family Stone
Here is my favorite song about the Summer

End of the spring and here she comes back
Hi, hi, hi, hi, there
Them summer days, those summer days

That’s when I had most of my fun back
High, high, high, high there
Them summer days, those summer days

I cloud nine when I want to
Out of school, yeah
County fair in the country sun
And everything, it’s true, ooh, yeah

Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime

First of the fall and then she goes back
Bye, bye, bye, bye there
Them summer days, those summer days

Boop, boop, ba, boop, boop when I want to
Out of school, yeah
County fair in the country sun
And everything it’s cool, ooh yeah

Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime
Hot fun in the summertime
