Spring Equinox 2016

 

"Last night I lost the world and gained the Universe." - C. Joybell C.

 

This Equinox is between two eclipses which makes for flexibility and creativity as a path forwards. It is extremely important to release old patterns to leave space for a rebirthing to happen. Weeding, spring cleaning and preparation for new growth are traditional themes at this time of year. They are more important than ever emotionally and mentally as well as physically, together with  reinforcing our spiritual practice.

 

By letting go of old patterns, we have the opportunity to find our true path which has the potential to be more fulfilling than we can imagine. Resisting this opportunity will be more uncomfortable than ever as home truths are not going to go away, and, the feeling of being stuck, unhappy and in chaos will persist. We need to look at several key issues. Is our choice of career right and are we happy? Are we content with our lives generally? If not, what can we do differently? Are we still holding on to negative beliefs? Are we forgiving? Are we being true to our values? Am I using my "voice"?

 

Creativity in all its forms can lead us to clarity and our "voice" without forcing results. There is a combination of an adventurous spirit, risk taking and being assertive available to us. Because Spring can be seductive and dreamy, there is an element of have fun but stay grounded, especially as this is such an important turning point collectively and individually. A sense of humour over timing is vital as we deal with passion and spontaneity on one hand and being aware of how we effect others on the other.

 

Some of the above is very familiar but we are running out of time. Finding a balance between lightness of spirit and boundaries can be challenging together with that sense of watching our back. Meditation on our feet can support us, together with being part of a community. More than anything, enjoy the journey ...
