"Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!" -Sitting Bull
Today marks the official beginning of Spring & a time of balance, when day is equal to night...
It's a time for celebrating the new life springing up all around us and for planting new seeds for the year ahead, both literally & metaphorically.
This is the turn of the wheel that is represented by the hare, the egg & the butterfly, symbols of fertility, new beginnings & rebirth.
It's a lovely day to go for a nature walk to forage for fresh herbs & edible weeds, or you may decide to take the spring cleaning you launched on Imbolc to the next level, throwing out anything in your life that no longer serves, restoring a sense of balance.
You might also indulge in a little retail therapy to add some Springy new items to your wardrobe, garden or home. And- for my money, Etsy is the very best place to do that, ensuring that you're able to locate items that feel unique & made with LOVE while supporting small biz...
