From today, March first, until after the equinox is a time of great balance. You may be familiar with the tradition of balancing eggs on their ends at equinox, and this can be done easily at this time. Also, a friend and fellow Witch clued me in to an old tradition that brooms can balance on their brushes at this time. Skeptical, but curious, I attempted to balance my own broom today. Here is a photo of the broom, which has been standing in the middle of the floor on its own for almost two hours now!
