Moon Day Musings: Monday March 21 2016 Spring Equinox

  Go ahead, breathe a deep sign, a long letting go of waiting for Life to sing in colors again, Aaaah . . . letting out our waiting for the danger point to pass. Now we know we’re going to make it! On this day Earth is in balance between dark and light. With luck, the way forward has roots tough enough to make it through to leaf and bloom and fruit this year.

What if . . . ? Do you have the will for spring if ice and snow won’t let up, if climate extremes bring your tower of expectations tumbling down? We are all challenged now to find balance between dark and light, to find a way for Life to win no matter what.

Rebirth magic: Take an egg, dye it red, deepen the color with your womb blood (or energy of your wise crone blood). Go out on the land; ask nature spirit to take your sweet sacrifice and turn it into a medicine blissing for all lands, all peoples everywhere. Bury the egg as a seed of Hope.

Palettal Prose: In Time to Blossom?

A large cloud swirlscanstock4709918

the uncertainty of spring so vast

it swarths the sun.

For millions o years on Earth

plants existed

endless varieties

of leaf and stem120201094923_1_900x600

and then one morning

114 million years ago,

it happened—

an incredible burst

of fragrance and color

the first flower.

Swollen and aching

like twig ends

all of us know the longingd5a83e6ecead395b5a41df567e755891

to let go

to open, to blossom.

It stirs within each of us

call us to grow

beyond our limitations

tells us there is more

tells us we are more

we are able to give

Water lotus flower blossom

Water lotus flower blossom

what is needed

we can undo

the grip of fear

out-love

the harshness of anger.

Will we take our next step?

The large cloud swirls

spring’s uncertainty so vastRobin calling song

it swaths the sun.

Against this marbled sky

a peach tree reaches

her tender twig ends swollen.

A robin sings.
