Spring Equinox


​        At Spring Equinox we welcome the dawning of spring and the demise of winter.

       Equinox, equal light, is the balance point between light and dark. The sun has entered the constellation of Aries. Aries is yang, cardinal fire; it is the initiation of action in the realms of spirit, inspiration, and self-awareness.             Spring Equinox is associated with the direction of the east. The east is home to all the winged-ones and the element of air.
       Within the plant cycle, the greening begins. The tiny, underground sprouts of Candlemas push their way up into the light. The plants form roots and stems. We humans are putting down roots and lengthening the rising stem of our vision for this yea, in the waxing light of the season.

Spring Equinox can be likened to 6:00AM in the cycle of a day. At 6:00AM it is dawn, sunrise. We have shifted from the 3:00 AM twilight state of Candlemas and are fully awake and conscious.  We have moved from inner commitment to the place where we are ready to take outer, physical action in the world.​

Spring Equinox 

All my winter doubts
take flight

at the sight of one green
stem.
