WikifallequnoxToday, at 5:23 PM, the Autumnal Equinox occurs (in the southern hemisphere the spring equinox occurs). This is the day when the sun rises exactly in the east and sets exactly in the west. This is when the northern hemisphere starts to get colder as “the Sun crosses over the Earth’s equator on its way south” (more info from Universe in Motion). See the diagram for the Winter solstice to illustrate what it’ll look like in a few months.

I’ve also read that it starts at 14 minutes after the hour (instead of 23, but 23 seems to be most referred to).

I’ve also gotten ready for the season by changing my blog look. It’s very similar to fall a few years ago, but I always liked the leaves.

How can it be fall alrady! I was looking for some information on the Equinox, but somehow I found out that “The time of Harvest is in the sign of Virgo and Libra during the pregnancy of Autumn. The Fall is a time when Nature reaches fulfillment with the ripening of her fruits, and is symbolic of the fusion of opposites.” and I decided to keep it! (Here’s some geeky info on it if you want…)

The calendar says it’s officially spring –

  1. Do you get a spring break? No. But most of the teachers and staff leave so it’s a nice time at work to get things done.
  2. Some of us are pretty casual about spring cleaning. Others go to it with a lot of gusto. Which are you? I’m due. My house is the absolute worst it’s every been! (It’s messy not dirty)
  3. Is planting flowers or a vegetable garden on the agenda? I’ll hang some on the railing of my condo (maybe). They better not need any water!
  4. Do you suffer from allergies and do they get worse in the spring? Yes I do. They generally do, but the seasons in Michigan haven’t been very cut and dry lately which doesn’t help any.
  5. How will you celebrate Easter this year? The family will get together most likely, generally a smaller gathering but many will be there. Maybe kidnap some kids to color some eggs and do the regular “stuff”.

These questions are from Sunday Brunch.

If you really want to know what happens at the equinox
