In Spring, everything is fertile and the energy is to nurture new growth, feed it and begin to wake up from the winter's sleep. We stretch and move again. Test the water. It is in this phase of the menstrual cycle we will find the energy to begin projects, to develop ideas and plan ahead. The crescent moon above us shows us the way, her light growing each night but still some aspects shrouded in darkness, in mystery.
During our Inner Spring week, we have the dynamics of Emergence, We are moving out of the fertile dark void of winter, where our dreams and visions have provided the essential first food to nourish our intentions and the work we want to bring into the world during this cycle and the cycles to come. Now is the time for planning, setting and fully articulating our intentions.
Our spring week marries beautifully with the energies of the Harvest Festival, Lammas.
Hello and Welcome Dear Friends,
Take a breath, settle in and join me for a few moments…
Early morning has become my favorite time of day this summer, watching and hearing the birds become active, the first visit from the hummingbird and the energetic bounces of the twin fawns that live in our lower field both a gift and delight. I watch the steam rise from the pond and the canal as the sun rises and begins to shine and warm the Earth. The moon has also been a companion on these mornings, growing smaller each day, retreating into the darkness.
Closing my eyes, I settle into the safety of my own energy field, heart breathing and connecting with the energy of the Sacred Oak Tree. When I look with my magical eye at the Oak in spring, I am filled with this rising sense of anticipation; movement up and out. Rhythmically, like waves pulsing up from the roots and into the trunk, the next wave reaching higher than the last. The tide coming in. The buds at the tips of the branches beginning to swell. Not rushing, but moving forward even so.
