We're heading into that lovely month of March when the grips of winter are finally letting go and the first breath of spring is awakening our senses. In the garden that means the first bulbs are up and blooming! Bright little cups of Crocus in an array of lollipop colors are scattered about, singing their songs of new life and joy! Sweet smelling hyacinths in hues of of purple and pink are also blooming, a nose to them brings such a heady perfume it can make your head spin! And then, there are the first cheerful daffodils, nodding their golden faces to the Sun, welcoming it's beautiful light back into the garden.
The Vernal Equinox is only a breath away on the 19th of March, and that marks a pause of equal light for the Earth. In the Northern hemisphere, she is slowly tilting her head towards the Sun again. We welcome the glorious light as our growing season begins. In the Southern hemisphere, the energies are moving towards the high point of harvest, celebrating another season of growth. March for them means the pause before Earth tilts her head away from the Sun and the light begins to soften. Soon it will be their rest time.
Wherever you find yourself on this spinning globe, may the month of March create a beautiful passage for you as you travel from one season to the next. Take time to pause during this special cosmic event and bless the dance of Earth and Sun as they create the beautiful seasons of our lives. And though it's true these seasons also bring challenges to our world, it's important to remember that underneath all the challenges, there is light. And light is always a good thing..
