Spring Equinox Marks a New Beginning
Tuesday, March 19, 2019
Sky-gazers Get Ready!
The third and final Super Moon (nicknamed the Full Worm Moon) in 2019 will appear in the night sky TOMORROW at 9:43 pm ET, — shortly after the spring equinox, marking the first time these astronomical events have occurred on the same day since March 20, 1981.
The word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night”—aequus (equal) and nox (night). On the equinox, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world. So regardless of where you are in the world, the equinox means that almost everyone will experience exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness. This only happens one other day of the year (during the September equinox).
With the equinox, we will enjoy more sunlight hours, earlier dawns and later sunsets.
In yoga tradition the equinox is celebrated by performing a Yoga Mala. A yoga mala is a string of 108 (or 54) sun salutations. This "marathon of yoga" allows you to break free form the hibernation of winter to recharge mentally and physically.
Join Mackenzie for an Equinox Yoga Mala Workshop on Saturday, March 23 at 2:00 – 4:00 pm.
