VirgoEB Autumnal Equinox 2009 When Light and Dark are Equal


Autumnal Equinox – When Light and Dark Are Equal

The Autumnal Equinox is when the dark of night announces it has caught up with the light of day, it is now equal. The word “equinox” originates from the Latin word aequus(equal) and nox (night). There is balance, even if for one 24 hour period. The tilt of Earth’s axis is slanting neither toward nor away from the Sun. The Sun is vertical above the equator.  In the Northern Hemisphere this occurs on September 22nd.

The Autumnal Equinox and You

The Autumnal Equinox at a personal level symbolizes balance, when your dark twin and enlightened self walk side by side, respecting each other’s strength and purpose. Your dark twin is not in the shadows much less invisible today, but in full regalia. And likewise, your enlightened nature is attired most beautifully. There is peace.

Devil or Spiritual Teacher

Here’s how the game of relationships and personal growth gets played out.  There are two of you inhabiting your body, you that is out front and your dark side that lurks in the background.  Depending on your perception, which really is about your stage of awareness, you could see this twin as the evil devil trying to cause you harm or as your spiritual teacher.

Its purpose is to test you, to find your weaknesses and to keep presenting them to you until finally you become strong and lay them aside. And when you are weak, it takes control of your body and you feel bad about yourself. When you are strong, you’re in charge and feel really good about yourself. “Who’s in charge?” is always your question.

Physical Addictions

The weaknesses I am referring to are commonly called addictions.  Copious amounts of drugs to put you to sleep so your dark side can take over; or excessive alcohol to push you out of control again for your dark side to take over, sometimes quite violently; or to pull you into the donut shop to fill you up with chocolate creams; or to become insatiable with your desire for sex, as the dark side never gets full.

Emotional Addictions

That’s just the physical addictions, how about the emotional addictions of having to be in a relationship no matter how bad it is, rather than be alone with your own dark side?  At least when you are in a relationship, your dark side can battle and challenge the other person, and sometimes leave you alone.

How about your fits of anger, depression, blame, or other emotional dramas? You can get so caught up in these emotional scenarios, you fail to realize, that the people and situations are presented to test you and for you to emotionally grow and balance yourself.

Mental Addictions

If you master your physical and emotional addictions, you might think you might be through.  But no, your dark side twin will continually tempt you with power, greed and fame which you find irresistible and succumb to in a heartbeat, at least for awhile until you discover it’s fools gold.

Spiritual Addictions

There are even spiritual addictions, becoming a martyr, over sacrificing; wearing yourself to a frazzle to the point you need to save yourself. Here’s a clue, you have to include yourself, become inclusive.

Evaluate Yourself on Autumnal Equinox

The Autumnal Equinox is a day to evaluate you, along the path of enlightenment.  How much influence has your dark side had over you, leading you astray every second it can? And how much are you in control?  That’s the real battle, the real war inside of you.

Game of Life

First, just awaken to that’s what the game of life is about.  Games keep you entertained, keeping you playing, and engaged in life.  Try to discover more and more about this invisible person inside of you and partner with it.

Then, you could say, “Okay, I get it, you are my ultimate teacher, putting every temptation possible in front of me”.  And if I can say, “No”, without being a fanatic zealot, but just a simple, “No, thank you”, I win as I feel good about myself each time I say it.

And when you present me with other temptations or goodies that I think I cannot live without, and then I overcome that temptation as well, I feel good about myself again.  And finally, I become conscious, truly awake.  “Thank you, my dark friend, please don’t let me get away with anything. Together, we can become enlightened”. That’s when the real fun and laughter begin.
