SPRING EQUINOX 2013

Animo non Astutia – By Courage not by Craft (Deceit)

 

The best way to describe this Equinox is a bit steamy, slippery and misty. There is a lot of water around and when the sun comes out you can see the steam coming out of the earth. So although there are signs of Spring, the weather is unpredictable and this is mirrored in our behaviours. You may be planning to do one thing and another happens, either by your own change of heart or changes made by others.  Intolerance will tend to make situations steamy and slippery.

 

There is a sense of questing for clarity. You may feel as if you are going over and over the same ground but this is in fact in order to be well prepared – a theme carried over from the Winter Solstice. Grab those light bulb moments when you can and make a note of them. The underlying message emotionally is honesty; firstly being honest with ourselves and secondly with others.

 

We are collectively going through a rite of passage, notice the acts of kindness that are constantly emerging in the true spirit of Spring. There will be a very strong sense of Awakening . There is also a reminder to bring our instincts and intuition together. Sharing thoughts and feelings in groups that are supportive, whilst being true to ourselves, will bring clarity. As Oscar Wilde said “be   yourself everyone else is already taken”. Reflect, meditate and/or use any spiritual practice before making any big decisions. This is a time to begin to bring our visions and sense of purpose for the future into being.

 

Paradoxically, we may need to use our creativity to think outside of the box as disruption and change of direction increases. This disruption may come about by misunderstandings around “unwritten contracts”, “but I thought ....”, or assumptions. If we deal with these situations openly, it will bring us closer to achieving clarity particularly in relationships.  In some cases you may find yourself being either fiery or cool, therefore it is really important to be as grounded as possible at all times ensuring that whatever tools you use to do this are in place. The fire is simply burning off any lack of clarity and eventually we will steadily move forwards achieving a sense of being part of. This may be directly connected to your responsibilities within your community or family or both. There is a sense that this is about personal power and definitely not power over.

"Peace Crane, I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world." Sadako Sasaki, age 12

 

The Equinox is always the time to bring in the harvest reminding us that we need to work together especially as the weather can be unpredictable, which in turn can be a metaphor for whatever is happening in our lives individually and globally. This Equinox may feel more chaotic than usual with a sense of solving one problem and another one immediately cropping up.  Being flexible, trusting our ability to adjust, to be alert and awake are key to our holding steady.

 

For a while now any personal issues that are unresolved have stayed on the surface until we resolve them in order to survive and thrive, resistance to doing this causing a lot of discomfort. As we progress into a period of significant transformation, our focus will become more about the survival of our world, less about our individual selves.  This transition is partly causing the feeling of chaos and it is important to not allow other people’s negativity (mainly caused by fear of change and taking responsibility) to destabilise us. Holding onto faith in everyone’s ability to change will help with this as opposed to allowing the ego to feed superiority/envy and judgement of others – whatever happens we are all in this together. At times other people’s personalities may feel “impressive” and slightly overwhelming, this may apply to our own personalities; so it is important to hold onto our individual sense of purpose for the greater good and to ask ourselves “what is my intent?” in a grounded way.

 

There may be times of the dark night of the soul and a sense of isolation. It may feel like descending into a pit and it is important to remember that we have a ladder of spiritual tools and wisdom to support us in climbing back out of the pit towards a sense of freedom. This is a reminder to maintain our individual spiritual practices. For a while, there may be a tension between our ambition to make a difference and our priorities with family and friendships – this will pass and it is important to find ways to maintain the balance by remembering that the commitment to healing/peace is the primary intent of the opportunity to move towards the survival of our world as a whole, not just mankind.

 

There is a great sense of being creative campaigners and thinking outside of the box. The link to Sadako’s story is a great example of the use of creativity to carry a message around the world. One of the gifts of this Equinox is understanding that the apparent lack of resources will enable us to focus on what resources we do have and use them creatively in order to move forwards .... We have the potential to experience and witness an amazing time of transformation.
