Daffodils and primroses are out. Birds are making their presence known: there are murmurations of starlings in the evening in our local area.😍 Here in the northern hemisphere, spring is in the air!
Tomorrow is Spring Equinox, one of the two points in the seasonal calendar when light and dark are in balance. The darkness holds the potential of our ideas and plans for the year ahead, just like the bulbs and seeds beneath the surface of the ground. The light, which increases from now on, helps them to grow and flourish.
We can embrace this potent energy and consider what we would like to bring back in to balance in our own life. Is there something you’d like to grow which would create more balance in your life? ⚖️
Oestre, the goddess of light associated with Spring, brings fertility. The egg is one of the traditional symbols of Spring Equinox and upcoming Easter: full of potential and promise. What dreams and intentions do your Spring eggs hold?🐣
These key themes of balance and fertility can also be seen to represent the balance of the masculine and feminine. The masculine as our more logical, rational selves and the feminine our more intuitive, receptive aspects. How can we balance the feminine and masculine within ourselves?💃🏻🕺🏻.
If you’re interested in honouring Earth’s seasons and cycles more for yourself, then I highly recommend the work of Glennie Kindred. Her book Sacred Earth Celebrations is a great one to start with.
Wishing you hope, balance and fertility throughout the season ahead, however that looks for you.
Let’s flourish together!
