Greetings here ...
The Equinox Moment on Planet Earth happens this year on 23rd September 1.44am East Coast Australia, and other global times may be found at http://archaeoastronomy.com/2008.shtml

In the Southern Hemisphere it will be Spring Equinox, and in the Northern Hemisphere - Autumn Equinox. Personally, as I prepare to celebrate the Spring Equinox on Saturday, I am more aware than ever of the "underneath" aspect of the Spring emergence ... the lost places involved in the bringing forth of new wisdom, what it has taken and still takes, to open my eyes. I like being conscious of Autumn Equinox going on at the same time in the North, because this is the truth of the situation : the flower does not happen without the "dirt' ... the flower and the compost are One. The food (which we all depend on no matter where you live) depends on a harvest, a loss, a cutting ... the feast and the loss are One. Slowly all this sinks in.

This year I decided that Spring is a good Moment to celebrate the chlorophyll molecule - without this invention by the plants, Earth would be a different Place. And further, we would not see at all ... as the eye's retinal molecule is a development of this chlorophyll molecule. The Sun is in the eye ... so even if you live in far away from the obvious wild, it is present. We will drink chlorophyll water in the ritual and be blessed with: Take and drink this Greenness, the magic of the chlorophyll molecule and of Earth-Sun communion. Do this in remembrance of She who gives Life.”

In the South we celebrate the Seasonal Moment of
Spring Equinox/Eostar
the Season for leaving behind the binds of the past …
and stepping into the Power of Being with new Wisdom.

and the Northern Hemisphere celebrates the Seasonal Moment of
Autumn Equinox/Mabon
the Season for giving thanks for the harvest - given freely in every moment,
and yet for expressing grief for all that is lost – the cost of Wisdom.

Bliss-ed contemplations of the approaching Moment of Balance - the grief and the joy.
