Honoring the Season of Rebirth

Since childhood, the equinoxes have been a treasured tradition in our family. Born on the Vernal Equinox in Mexico City, our mother imparted upon us the importance of this special day, marking the triumphant arrival of Spring.

As my daughter, Sabrina, embarked on her Waldorf education at age 3, we continued our seasonal homage by adorning our nature table with treasures from the great outdoors. We eagerly awaited Mother Earth as she awakened her root children and the gnomes from deep within the earth to herald the arrival of Spring. We knew that the emergence from the darkness of winter symbolized new beginnings, balance, and the vibrant energy of renewal.

Rooted in ancient wisdom and cultural reverence, the vernal equinox signifies the precise moment when the sun crosses the celestial equator, ushering in equal parts day and night. From the awe-inspiring monuments of the Egyptians, Greeks, and Persians to modern-day celebrations, this celestial event has captivated humanity for millennia.

Across diverse cultures, the vernal equinox is steeped in symbolism, representing the eternal cycle of rebirth and growth. From ancient pagan rituals to contemporary religious observances like Easter and Passover, this day resonates with the promise of fresh beginnings and revitalization.

Beyond its cultural allure, the vernal equinox serves as a beacon for scientific inquiry, guiding researchers as they track shifts in weather patterns and ecological dynamics. Celebrations vary widely, blending ancient customs with modern sensibilities, yet all share a common thread: honoring the Earth's natural rhythms, embracing change, and rejoicing in the blossoming of spring. In our Cauldron we pay homage to Spring and Mother Earth with our Vernal Equinox blend with blossoms harvested from our garden of Lavender, Lilac and Honeysuckle. These sweet scents blend together, perfuming the air to let us know that Spring has arrived.
