Encapsulated in the grip of Winter, we have been waiting for the enlivening energy of Goddess to revive us and bring forth Her promise of new life, new energy, and new manifestations. The seeds that began their quickening at Imbolc are bursting with life-affirming spirit and providing visual cues that Goddess is extending across the land.
The message of the Goddesses of Spring is to embrace life and say YES to the new. Time to dance, shimmy, and shake all the cobwebs of winter from your soul. We are restored and the celebration of Goddess is contagious to our Soul and Spirit!
