Spring Equinox

Spring Equinox and Ancient Forgotten Cultures

The changing of the seasons was ritualistically celebrated by most ancient civilizations around the world. Anthropologists tell us that watching the seasons change was for agricultural reason, and planting and harvesting crops - but there is more to this than meets the eye. There are subtle changes in the gravitational field of Earth as well as changes in the human body, mind and spirit which come into play.
We have lost track 
of these and other subtle systems energetics - but we can see evidence of other cultural celebrations.
In this photo, we can witness the arrival of the serpent at the Mayan ruin at Chichen Itza and the Kukulkan Pyramid. On the Spring and Autumn equinoxes, in the late afternoon, the northwest corner of the pyramid casts a series of triangular shadows against the western balustrade on the north side that evokes the appearance of a serpent wriggling down the staircase, which some scholars have suggested is a representation of the feathered-serpent god Kukulkan.

Happy Spring Equinox!
