Festivities of Natural Annual Events Around The World: Borealis Translux (Midway Equinox & Solstice)


Apr 27, 2015 by Rua Lupa


Seasonal Occurrences

During this transition between the Borealis Equilux & and Borealis Lux the earth’s orientation has the northern hemisphere toward the sun. In Borealis the days are longer seeing the earth’s daily turning view of the sun higher and higher north; and for Australis the nights are longer with the daily turning view of the sun lower along the north horizon.
Within the Borealis Polus Axis it is 24hrs of daylight and getting milder, and within the Australis polus Axis it is 24hrs of night and getting colder.

South of the Borealis Polus Axis, with the exception of southern and western Europe, spring is finally in full effect with the first flowers of season springing up, planting is done in the gardens and fields, the watercourses and bodies are open, some species of reptiles are migrating, frogs are starting to be heard, birds are displaying and nesting their eggs, hibernating species are coming out, and for many mammals the gestation period is nearing its end or the next generation is arriving.

At and just north of the Borealis Sol Axis with the addition of Southern & Western Europe (where the majority of earth’s human population is) it is early summer, with adult leaves on the trees, insects in hyper pollination mode, frogs in chorus, mammal offspring are steady on their feet, and nests filled with chicks.

In the Mid-West United States it is “Tornado Season” and Borealis in general would be going into it’s hurricane season. This is due to the increased evaporation from this latitude of the earth being oriented toward the sun.

For the Tropics, this is when the Tropical Rain Belt is over the equator, moving toward the Borealis Sol Axis. As well as going up the East and Southeast Asia. Being one of the major rainy seasons of the year.

South of the equator it is overall getting darker, colder and the precipitation is lessening. The summer harvests are in full swing and the winter crops are being planted.


Seasonal Customs

In Borealis, most of the temperate climes are celebrating the full effects of spring arriving with planting of seeds and seedlings, and getting outside more often for longer periods of time. In the warmer climes planting and seeding are completed, in some regions the first harvest has already been brought in and the second harvest sowed. For both temperate and warmer climes fertility is a common theme with smaller species of wildlife performing mating rituals and the earth is symbolized as being fertile with all the new life about. Humans cue off of these surroundings with fertility type dances (most popularly the maypole), rituals for a good harvest to come, maiden led opening ceremonies, phallic icons, and secret admirer gifts.

Various activities around this time of year include: celebrating the seasonal flooding of rivers as the “earth’s menstrual cycle”, tree planting parties, outdoor music performances, outdoor cooking/barbecues, foliage costumes, floral parades, branches placed in front of entries of homes and livestock shelters for protection where at the end of the wheat harvest they are removed to use for baking the first bread, bonfires, gifts of spring flowers, and pilgrimages to sacred wells/springs.

In Australis the harvest has come in, feasts are made, and festivities of light are had.

Various activities in Australis include: bonfires, ancestor veneration, planning for eventual death (as to make it a smooth transition for loved ones), death themed decorations, visiting graves/remembering the dead, seed exchanges from harvest, Virid-os (green bones) seasonal character is at festivities challenging taboos, exploring the different nocturnal creatures that will be more present in the darker months ahead, and learning lore of the land.
