On the equinox, the darkness and light are equal, so this makes the day the perfect time to do some magickal work for balance. Who couldn't use more of that in their lives?
Here is a spell for balance from my book, EVERYDAY WITCH A TO Z SPELLBOOK (Llewellyn, 2010).
Optional Extras: Four items to represent Earth, Air, Fire and Water (for instance, a rock, a feather, a small candle and a bowl of water), one black candle and one white candleNote: Since this is a spell for balance, make sure your altar is set up in a balanced way. Start by visualizing the imbalances in your life or a particular situation (too much work or stress, not enough love) and picture them being balanced out by whatever you are lacking. If you are too overwhelmed to even figure out what you need, just feel yourself opening up to whatever the gods send in response to your prayer. Then light the dark and light candles.Earth and Air, Water and FireGrant to me my heart’s desireBalance now my troubled lifeWash away confusion’s strifeEven out the high and lowGently soothe the ebb and flowDark and light in balance beFrom extremes please set me freeCalm, serene and peaceful IWith ease and grace my days will flyAs above and so belowBalance to my life bestow
