Wednesday 20th March is the Pagan Vernal Equinox at 21.58.
The Equinox is a time when light and dark are equal over the whole world. It's good to mark the moment with silence and stillness. See my live
Representing balance of opposites, symbolically it's a great time to bring harmony and balance into your life.
In the UK and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, this is the Spring Equinox, in the Southern Hemisphere it's the Autumn Equinox. Image left by Przemyslaw "Blueshade" Idzkiewicz shows the illumination of Earth by Sun on the day of equinox (vernal and autumnal) and is from Wikimedia Commons.
On this day the sun rises exactly at due East and sets at due west. This fact makes it a good day for finding due east and due west from your favourite site for watching the night sky. Simply go outside around sunset or sunrise and notice the exact location of the sun on the horizon with respect to familiar landmarks. See Earthsky Website for more.
Here is an Angela McGerr Angelic Meditation with Barakiel (the ruler of Pisces) and Phuel (guardian angel of water) which could be conducted for the Equinox
The Zodiac Sign of Pisces is ruled by Neptune and is of course a Water Sign.
This Equinox day (final day of the Sign) gives you an opportunity to use the healing powers of Barakiel, Ruler of Pisces, and Phuel, Angel Ruler of Neptune, who is also Lord of Waters and Powers of the Moon.

Try this exercise with these two mighty Angels. Use it to heal, wash away emotional turbulence and hurt, for heart and thymus to re-expand.
- You could do this exercise while in the bath, or just swimming, or if this is impossible just use your imagination.
- Sit quietly and focus your attention within, thinking about your desire to calm your emotions. Say Barakiel’s and Phuel's names three times to invite them in.
- If you have an aquamarine (one of Phuel's crystals), hold this in your left hand and it will be programmed with healing during this exercise.
- Start taking deep breaths of blue green energy, breathing them right down through your body.
- Imagine you are walking in a beautiful place of nature.
- Presently you come to a pool of crystal clear water, reflecting a blue sky.
- Know that with the power of water energy your spirit can go down into this water to be healed and washed clean of emotional turbulence.
- Imagine that you can step into the water and float in it.
- If you wish to you can merge for a short time with the water itself, becoming the medium that nourishes fish and other water creatures.
- The water is very still, silken in texture and peaceful.
- The sun shines into its depths, lighting the grains of sand at the bottom.
- Let go of your cares; they are washed away by the healing power of water.
- When you feel relaxed, come out of the water (real or imaginary)
- Ask Phuel to seal in your emotional healing, and seal your crystal with silver and aquamarine rays; remember to thank him and Barakiel for their assistance.
