Spring Equinox~

Spring Equinox 2009, March 20th,
Sunrise 7:03 am Sunset 7:12 Pm.

They say that the Spring Equinox is the festival of balance and awakening and alchemy. The magikal re-birth of the earth. The mingling of sun and rain. The time when opposite forces merge together in a divine act of transformation. The Alchemists call this merging, Conjunctio, meaning higher transformative union of two unlike substances. Like flint struck against stone to make fire, like sun and rain reaching down into the earth inviting green shoots and pink blossoms. On the day of the Equinox, day and night are of equal length. The sun and the moon spend the same amount of time glowing in the sky. It is indeed, a magikal time.

Gus(best canine friend) and I have plans to walk to down to the sea, to light candles and burn lavender and sage. To set our intentions for the next cycle and give thanks for the bountiful blessings that surround us. I might sing to the earth and the sky before we dash wildly through the green woods celebrating the return of life. Later we will join a dear friend for more singing, a fine cup of tea and some delicious food.

Sending Spring Blessings to you~
May the most wonderful things be sprouting in your life.

I have never thought of spring like that, thank you for your inspirational posts, they are really beautiful and I am starting to look at nature in a more spiritual sense than just gasping at all the beauty! Love Holly x
