A Word from the President of ACVA


By William (Bill) Levacy

Fall Season

Fall Solstice September 2012On September 22 in the northern hemisphere, night and day will be nearly of the same length.

The Sun will cross the celestial equator moving southward (in the northern hemisphere).

As you look out now each day at the horizon, either to the East in the morning or to the West in the afternoon, you will see the Sun rise and set a little bit more to the south each day, until it reaches its southernmost point on the horizon, appears to stop and turn and then proceeds moving north again.


Of course in the northern hemisphere, Autumn symbolizes the return of bounty and rich harvest.

These are fantastic ideas to take into our personal lives at this time and to use the energy of the equinox to create a new rhythm for ourselves in the months ahead.

In the southern hemisphere, the autumnal equinox corresponds to the center of the Sun crossing the celestial equator moving northward and occurs on the date of the northern vernal equinox.

The autumnal equinox marks the first day of the season of autumn.
