When the position of the sun passes directly over the equator it’s called Equinox. Solstice is when the sun reaches its highest or lowest point in the sky at noon, marked by the longest and shortest days.
Spring Equinox is when the days begin to get longer, leading up to Summer Solstice which is the longest day of the year.
Then the daylight hours begin to wane until we reach the Autumnal Equinox.
Days will gradually become shorter until we come to the shortest day of the year, the Winter Solstice.
Autumn uniquely symbolizes that every journey must find its end, yet there is always futuristic hope for rebirth.
