Equinox at Purecamping. Labyrinth walk with hailstones … that’s a first but lovely company … lovely fire … another spoke on the Celtic wheel marked in West Clare. The Spring Equinox is one of the eight spokes of the Celtic Wheel of the Year. We have been celebrating these at the Labyrinth since Mid-Summer in 2015.
There are two equinoxes every year – in March and September – when the Sun shines directly on the equator and the length of night and day are nearly equal. The Spring Equinox marks the moment the sun crosses the equator from south to north. This happens on March 19th, 20th or 21st each year. The exact timing this year is 20th March, 10.29am.
