The specter ‘neath the lintel waits,
Then bursts full-force against the gate,
No bolt restrains, no lockset blocks
Tis Autunm’s looming eqiniox!
(R Weisser 2012)
As the Earth continues its yearly journey around the Sun, we are approaching the semi-annual “Day of Equity!”
It’s an interesting phenomenon, as 363 days a year the tilt of the Earth upon its axis results in the number of daylight hours being determined by latitude.
But twice a year, the position of the Earth is exactly “flat” relative to the Sun, and every non-polar location enjoys equal hours of daylight and night!
The Ancients understood the significance of the event. They knew it happened, they just didn’t know WHY!
On September 22 2012, at 14:49 UTC we will all be on the same celestial footing!
And Autumn will OFFICALLY commence!
