The Spring Equinox – Birthing Newness

I spent the Spring Equinox In Raglan, NZ (a very beautiful part of the world) gathering, bathing in springs green, setting intentions and releasing what needed letting go of at the edge of the sea.  Oh, and reconnecting-hanging with old friends after a lot of time in between drinks.  It was a lovely way to herald in spring and the flood of new beginnings and birthing it holds the space to deliver.

God I am SO ready to birth, birth, birth that I was super happy at the Equinox’s arrival and the departure from the dark side of the year into the light.  And only a couple of days in and the season has brought me much movement!  I just love the anchoring that the cycle of the moon and the seasons bring.  What about you, are you feeling into the potential-birthing of newness that spring heralds?  Have you felt the creative tension between the process of letting go of the old and opening up to the new?  The Spring Equinox holds that potential for all of us if we’re willing, though to better explain this powerful time check out the below snippets that I gathered from this article on Belsebuub.

Enjoy this creative potential laden time and revel in the light, especially if you have been travelling through the dark for awhile.  The boon is there for the taking xx

“The spring equinox (also known as the vernal equinox) is the time in the earth’s annual cycle around the sun in which day and night are equal in length, before the days finally start to get longer after the dominance of darkness during winter, and life springs forth from death. Its deeper spiritual significance reveals the mysteries of spiritual resurrection.

“The spring equinox stands upon the point of balance, upon which everything pivots in its motion, in the universe, in the cycles of the seasons, and within ourselves. On one side of the equinox is the dark half of the year, and on the other the light half, representing the struggle between the forces of darkness (death and decay) and light (birth and life). It is this antithesis that gives motion to all cycles in the universe, and which is likewise found in the spiritual work to awaken”.

  1. Beautiful pictures and post. And the writing and sentiment is pitch perfect as always! It’s Autumn Equinox here in the northern hemisphere. According to the Chinese, it’s time to face west which is the direction of one’s dreams and visions: http://earthsky.org/earth/autumn-equinox-cycles-of-nature-and-chinese-philosophy Folks in this hemisphere are also letting go of those things that are dying and are no longer useful. Here’s to dreams and visions!
