From the Commander of Kadosh (March 2018)

We welcome the month of March with change. In our degrees we learn the equinox has important roles throughout time. It is more than just trying to balance an egg perfectly, which can be done any day of the year. The word equinox comes from the Latin word aequus, meaning equal, and nox, meaning night. We may think it to be an equal split of light, and dark, but the equinox is just close in time. It varies due to the sun rise, and atmospheric reaction of sunlight. The few days prior to the spring equinox, and a couple after the Autumn equinox is a period know as the equilux. Taken from Latin meaning equal light. This is when there is both true equal night, and day. Duncan said "Light, is a source of positive happiness: without it man could barely exist". We should take this extra time and lux to share that happiness with all we encounter. A friend often uses the phrase "Let your Light shine", and think that is a solid way to start the month of March.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day
