As the seasons change - and the internal, solitary energy of winter starts to fade - the gentle energy of Spring joyfully emerges.
The harsh soil of Winter thaws and softens. The seeds stirs in the ground and delicate roots spread out and down. Just as the trees, buds and crocuses start to emerge, my cells feel like they are vibrating and I too feel my energy being refreshed and renewed.
I looked out the door and saw the dove in my blue spruce courting his love. The sparrows in my neighbor’s air conditioner are busy getting their new nest ready. Any feelings of melancholy have been replaced with excitement and renewal. I am ready to spread the roots of what needs to blossom for me this Spring and Summer. What a great time to set intentions for what needs to blossom in you!
This year the equinox falls on March 20th, 7:21 p.m. EDT. On this day, the sun is in the midpoint in the sky and both day and night are 12 hours. Last year I remembered to try and balance an egg on its end and it worked!
Here is a link to the website of a dear friend of mine, Laural Virtues Wauters, that shares more information about the Vernal Equinox and shows some of her beautiful mandalas.
Blessings to all that all blossom beautifully for you this Spring.
