Happy Spring Equinox ~

All things being equal this day and night. A time of magic and Spring delights. Traditionally in witch mythology it is the time of Marriage between the God and Goddess, the time of handfasting and commitment to the Witches path through darkness emerging into the light of the new year. The new year is celebrated at Samhain but I have always felt that the wheel turned in Spring. The start of the Astological New year and the time of life springing out of the earth. We plant in Fall to see that life continues. We plant again soon to keep the circle going to spin the wheel through-out the year. A time for everything.

The fairies full of mischief, having quite enough of the cold and snow. They – just like us are ready to dance on green grasses and smell and taste the air filled with life and summer. The birds are singing again and the sun hits all the right stones to open doorways to other worlds. We have come through the darkness to the other side. We wish our friends down-under safe passage through their journey. Guided by their seperate sky.

It is time for sweet pastels and green things, quivering with possibility.

I hope you have been well and that Spring will find you healthy and ready to bloom.

I have always loved the bluebonnets and the poppies of my childhood that trumpeted the march of spring. Now I have Robins and Chipmunks and tiny little shoots of daffodils and tulips. Here’s to Spring – forever may she live.

    This is very interesting! Thanks. I thought we had spring in Kansas CIty, but now it’s back to freezing, maybe even snow. It’s wonderful to see your photos of spring flowers. My sister lives in Texas, and once we got to see the fields of bluebonnets. I loved to see the poppies, too!

    Love the images in the video. In California, the concept of Spring is basically just that – a concept. I have a season poster in my class. It showed that Spring would officially begin March 20-21. My students were wildly excited. They imagined they would wake up and there’d be daffodils blooming and bunnies hopping about.

    But, we have been watching several trees blossom and the other day, we had a moment of silence so we could listen to the bird singing outside our window. I heard one girl whisper, “It’s Spring!”

    How beautiful, such an affirmation of the powers of nature.

    Children of the goddess, take in the blessings of this summer and do not forget to be thankful.

    So looking forward to the fruit season. I recently learned that violets, day lilies and squash flowers are edible! I’m eagerly awaiting these special gifts.

    I’m so glad I found this page, by happy accident.
    Love and Light.
