The Consejo General de Tainos Borincanos for example has organized an equinox ceremony in the Trujillo Alto area of Boriken (Puerto Rico) while members of Taino Iukaieke Guainia will hold ceremony at Brook Park in the Bronx, New York. Community member Ana Carmona, a Boriken Taino community member will lead a ceremony in Costa Rica.
Carmona states that “the equinox is a time of beginnings, creativity, and positive changes.” She hopes that community members will “open their hearts to all the opportunities that life has to offer during this sacred time.”
An equinox occurs twice a year -- in March and September -- when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night are nearly equal in all parts of the world. This year on March 20 at precisely 1:32 P.M. EDT, the Sun will cross directly over the Earth's equator.
