○Ostara, spring Equinox, Eostar○ The day that officially marks the shift from the Season of night, dark, cold, rest, slowness, sleep, dreams incubating, pause, convalescence, and inner reworking, to the Season of day, outward growth, light, warmth, heat, creating on the physical plane, labour, fullness, potentiality, manifesting, orchestrating, and shaping the world. I see both the spring Equinox and autumn Equinox as gate posts between these two larger seasons of the year, with the summer and winter Solstices marking the zeniths of each.
I am so thankful for all this past cold, dark, rest season brought to me. Last warm season was seriously too much and these dark months swaddled me up and gave me permission to rest and become refreshed.
I encourage everyone to develop their relationship with natural rythms and seasons. Whether its moon cycles, astrological signs through each solar month, the wheel of the year, four seasons, or two larger seasons, I am certain it will be rewarding in some way. It's a multi-year project and only becomes more nuanced and whole with time.
For me, making it a point to become ever more connected to seasons and nature rythms, has allowed me to feel more and more at home in the cosmos, the earth, this place, and in my body.
The earth heals you and your ancestral traumas if you allow it. But allowing it means developing your listening and your awareness of what may seem very subtle at first. The language of the non-human world is easy to not hear at all amongst all that is human. But this is the work the earth is asking us to do. As we hear the subtle difference of a bird singing in ease vs in alarm we learn of our role and our personal effect as we walk amongst so many non-humans we co create this earth with. .
