The autumn equinox (also known as the fall equinox) is the time in the earth’s annual cycle around the sun in which day and night are equal in length, before night takes over and brings the coming winter, a time of darkness and death.

The Spiritual Meaning of the Winter Solstice

The birth of a divine child and savior at the winter solstice has formed a central part of spiritual beliefs throughout the world since the beginning of history—in ancient Egypt as the birth of Horus, the birth of Mithras in Persia, the birth of Jesus at Christmas, the birth of the spiritual Son at Alban Arthan of the Druids, etc. These celebrations have tapped into a universal spiritual principle that is just as relevant now as it was then.

Solstices and Equinoxes – Spiritual Significance Explained

The ancient veneration of the sun is one of the greatest celebrations in history. It has been encoded in sacred sites and texts by peoples separated by vast distances for thousands of years across the world—all the way from the Great Pyramids of Egypt, to the megaliths of Stonehenge, and the huge stone statues of Easter Island. The sun is one of the oldest and most universal themes connecting the ancient wisdom traditions of the world. It’s estimated ancient cultures built hundreds (if not thousands) of huge megalithic structures, stone circles, temples, and secret inner rooms that aligned with the sun at its major annual stages—the solstices and equinoxes—across Europe and Britain, in Africa, Russia, North, Central and South America, Easter Island, Australia, Asia, and many other parts of the world. Most today see it as a form of sun or agricultural worship and pagan celebration to do with the seasons—and yet some of these sites have endured as the most enigmatic and mystical places in the world, and remain some of the most advanced sites astronomically, mathematically, architecturally, and spiritually even to this day.
