The autumnal equinox marks the first day of autumn as summer sunshine gives way to red leaves and rain. This year, the equinox falls on Tuesday, September 22, which is a day when nighttime and daytime are roughly equal. Astronomically, on the day of the equinox, the Sun crosses the celestial equator and the days start to grow shorter.

Spiritually, there is also a lot happening during this time as the ebb and flow of energies shifts with the seasons.

According to Tanaaz of Forever Conscious, as Mother Nature prepares for the cold embrace of winter, so should we prepare to let go.

The spiritual expert said: "Now, as the leaves begin to fall and the weather gets cooler, Mother Nature begins preparing for a type of death, and we too may feel called to let things go.

"We may also feel a need to 'put things on ice' or to release our attachment to taking action and making decisions in order to see where things may flow on their own."

The word equinox comes from the Latin for equal night and this is often reflected in astrological forecasts for this time of the year.

Tanaaz said: "Even though our location will determine how we will experience these Equinox energies, on this day, all of us will experience this equality and balance between light and dark energies.

"The scales will be balanced and we will be able to experience the merging of these two energies to the point where we can feel them as one."

Astrologers, in particular, believe tomorrow's equinox is all about balance.
