Spring Equinox

What a lovely day this is shaping up to be.  There is still a chill in the air but I can hear the roosters crowing and the birds chirping.  In the silence that is a Sunday morning in the South, I can hear the water rushing over the waterfall, and smell that crisp air.  Today we celebrate Ostara, the beginning of spring, the rejuvenation of the earth as it comes back to life after the dormancy of winter. 

We will color eggs and hunt eggs, spend a few moments in our family circle and meditate, to take this special time to meaningfully reconnect with each other and Mother Earth.  We will write down our hopes and dreams for the season and plant them in our garden, so they may grow and flourish with the bounty that is our garden, that which will provide nourishment for our bodies and food for our souls.  What a wonderful day, what a joyful day. 

And after such a magnificent full moon last night.  We had our full moon circle, and then lounged in the hot tub soaking sore muscles, that worked hard during the day, watching and filling up on that bright, powerful moon. 

The beauty of each moment.
