Spring Equinox 2019 is a powerful convocation of energies on March 20 as the Sun enters Aries and we celebrate the Full Moon of Libra AND Lakshmi Jayanti, the appearance/birthday of the Goddess Lakshmi. Day and night are balanced. The renewal of the land and our spirits is manifest as the Grandmothers of Winter take a step back to reveal the Maiden Goddesses of Spring that perpetuate the cycle of life. The joy and innocence of the Spring Maiden Goddess affirms the potential of our creative lives and the ability to dance, sing, and stand in the shower of blessings.
You may find that the days preceding the Spring Equinox and the upcoming energy vortex of events are challenging or full of endings and maybe even loss. This is the natural cycle of the Seasonal Soul – clearing the dead weight to make room for the new life and the potential of Spring. Embrace it. Assist it! Question what needs to be released within your life and relationships so that Goddess may breathe the promise of NEW into your world and soul. Consider it a Spring Cleaning within and without and an opportunity to focus on beginnings and the honing of your intentions.
Mercury is retrograde right now and does not station direct until March 28, although the shadow period extends until April 16. While this clever trickster loves to disrupt, take advantage of the retrograde and the energy that syncs perfectly with Spring. Meditation, organizing, making plans, writing, soul searching, dreaming, and visioning are all fantastic ways to put a positive spin on the retrograde. Planning ahead and cultivating patience are good ideas to allow the snafus to flow around you.
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!
I wish you the blessings of Spring, unequivocal YES’s to and from the Universe, the grace of Goddess, laughter that lights up your Soul, and the blooming of your hopes and dreams for this season. Thank you for connecting and supporting MotherHouse of the Goddess – I am ever-so-grateful for each and every one of you.
