Today, the time that Sunna (the Norse Sun Goddess) and Máni (the Norse Moon God) spend in the time is equal. They are in balance. Personally, though, I find that since Sunna’s light is growing stronger each day, the focus is on new life and new beginnings.
I will officially celebrate with ritual tomorrow. Idunna will be honored. Idunna is the wife of Bragi, God of Poetry. Idunna herself “guard[s] the apples of immortality which kept the gods for ever [sic] young” (Ellis Davidson 164).
I see Spring Equinox as the time when Idunna allows the Earth Mother (Nerthus in Norse tradition) to have one of her apples of immortality and again become young. I will honor Idunna for her apples.
If you’re curious about the ritual I will perform, I posted it already here.
Have a blessed Spring Equinox, however you may celebrate!
