Inspired by a card is drawn from the Psychic Tarot deck, Spiritual Union shows an image of two people meeting over a goblet of light. Their brow centres are touching indicating a meeting of minds, of intuition, of thoughts.
When we meet someone who shares our thoughts, our beliefs, our way of life, it is a magical moment. It can happen between two or more people, in a romantic situation or platonic. It may be a fleeting smile shared while watching a sun set or some wonderful moment in life, it may be during a concert, or looking at art. It can happen as we shop for groceries, find our car, walk with our dog or children.
It happens often in life. A moment when thoughts, ideas and mind are one.
The Spiritual Union of souls meeting, the recognition of a life greater than the one we live alone and separate. It is a beautiful reminder that we are never alone. There is soul participation everywhere, union of spirit.
This card appears at the turning point of the year when the day and night meet as one and their duration through their cycles are of equal duration, day and night meet and separate for a few days and nights as equal partners. It is a message to show that even the most diverse energies can find harmony and union.
The day will release its duration as summer gently fades and gives way to autumn. Dusky evenings where the birds still sing and the sun lengthens shadows throughout the land. Slowly the night will increase in length, giving time for more rest and less emphasis on work.
We often feel sadness as dark evenings come and have a longing to return to endless summer days. However think of this as a union. A union of the splendours of summer with her endless days and time outdoors. There is time to be spent inside now. At hearth and home. A coming back, a return to the self.
A union of spirit requires peace and sanctuary. We return each autumn as different from the people we were in the spring. There is a harvest of thoughts, ideas, plans, achievements to reflect on. Using each mistake or stumble along the way as a stepping stone to the next venture. There is only good experience along our paths. Union with Spirit teaches all our achievements are worthy. The ones we feel are failures are the ones that give the most wisdom and learning.
We can celebrate in all we do at Equinox.
Rejoice in the union of your own spirit and with one another.
