Spring marks the moment when the sun sits directly over the Earth’s equator as it heads northward. The Northern and Southern Hemispheres share the sun’s rays equally at the equinox, and night and day are roughly the same length, therefore there is a natural energetic balance in nature and in us.

Taking a life lesson from springtide, I have woken up to a whispery scented zephyr wind, and am mindful of the natural energetic shift that we can feel right now. Notably being a melancholic person, which is a cold and dry temperament, and the Spring season is the natural opposite, being a hot and moist temperament, this combination is an aligned one.

Spring is a good time to start something new, to declutter mental and physical spaces, to spend time outside, listen to bird song, read a new book, and generally make use of the energy that comes with the Spring equinox.

In the garden, I am embracing the blue Hyacinth with its hypnotic trance and taking pleasure in the violets against a backdrop of green foliage. St John’s wort has arose, from the soil scented earth, as has the Lemon balm with its sprightly charms, letting me know it is here once more. The flowering buds of the motherly Elder with it shape shifting leaves stands firm and succeeds in making me feel grounded. The fleeting petals of the magnolia tree reminds me of new beginnings, of hope, of change, and a promise of what is yet to come.
