The Spring Equinox is a time for renewal, sewing seeds and fertility. It is the day when feminine and masculine energies unite in sacred union. We celebrate the change of seasons, the balance of light and dark, yin and yang, and the return of new life.

Rituals you can perform for the Spring Equinox include symbolically planting seeds for the year, or conceiving new ideas to nurture through the season. A simple spring ritual you can do, apart from spring cleaning, is to bless some seeds with your ideas and plant them in a garden or pot.

It’s also common to use this time to free yourself from things or qualities holding you back. Since this is a day of balanced energies, it is a good time to perform workings where you are incorporating energies that are balanced. If you put your focus on one energy, make sure you balance it with a counterpart to raise the charge.

Along with setting personal intension and performing ritual, Spring Equinox is also a beautiful time of year to raise your vibration through celebration. In San Francisco, its time for us to commune, reconnect and dance in the park once again with our Sunset family and friends.

We are thoroughly blessed and have so much gratitude to our Sunset Sound System organizers, Galen and Solar, for allowing us to be of service and design the altars for another season of Sunset.

This year the Sunset Opener is honoring longtime Sunseter, DJ Nick (Nicole) Mason. Nick DJ’d with Sunset in the park and on the Sunset Boat Parties back in the day.

“On March 20th, 1994 the first Sunset party happened in celebration of the Spring Equinox in Berkeley Marina, California. Overlooking the Golden Gate and the San Francisco skyline we danced into the evening. It’s this transformative time when the sun sets and we move from light to dark that has fueled 2 decades of friends and family coming together to bring close to the weekend and positivity to the week ahead. Drawing from the the spirit of sound system culture from Jamaica and UK, Sunset has produced over 150 free outdoor dance parties from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Whether it be a renegade beach party or a permitted event in the park the communal vibe has remained unchanged.” ~ Sunset Sound System
