Sweet Salutations of Spring!
I’m always delighted to celebrate the equinox – this natural reminder of balance. Astrologically when the wheel turns to Aries it’s considered the start of the new year, and that makes a lot of sense of to me. Don’t you feel the stirrings of new beginnings? The air feels filled with potential and possibility, and it finally feels like time to push forward.
I love watching Spring arrive. I’m hopelessly awed each and every year. That utterly distinctive luminous Spring green simply wows me, and my eyes search endlessly for little glimpses here and there. Tiny shoots of green are poking their heads out in my garden and I spotted the first robin this week so clearly things are on the move.
I think Rumi describes Spring perfectly:
“Lord, the air smells good today,
straight from the mysteries
within the inner courts of God.
A grace like new clothes thrown
across the garden, free medicine for everybody.
The trees in their prayer, the birds in praise,
the first blue violets kneeling.
Whatever came from Being is caught up in being,
drunkenly forgetting the way back.”
That’s certainly how I want to embrace this season.
I wish you a most wonderfully abundantly season filled with magic and delight.
