The equinox is the moment the sun crosses the celestial equator. At this time, the hours of daylight and darkness are approximately equal. There is an Autumnal Equinox and a Vernal Equinox each year.
About Morningbird (Witchipedia's Founder)
I am a homesteading hearth witch who grew up along the shores of the Hudson River and has lived among the Great Lakes for the past 20 years. Together with my musical husband and youngest child, I steward a one-acre mini homestead with herb, vegetable and flower gardens, chickens, ducks, geese and rabbits, and areas reserved for native plants and wildlife.
I have three children; two are grown, and I have been practicing magick alone and with family and friends for over 30 years.
