The spring (or vernal) equinox, is the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator, an imagined line in the sky above Earth’s equator, from south to north. It is the point when both day and night are of equal length and marks the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere.

This is a time when light and dark have evened out, and we rejoice at the opportunity to emerge from winter anew.
