Happy dark into New Moon weekend, dear ones & mmmm what a yummm yummmy one it’s setting up to be~
Overnight, Saturday, we not only “Spring” forward an hour, we also have the alchemy of dark into light that marks the new lunation, or moon cycle, with a New Moon.
This is the lunation that will bring about Ostara, or Spring Equinox, the next quarter holiday (holy day) on the Earth Path. Quarter holidays divide the year into quarters, according to the perfect harmonious transits of earth, moon, and sun.
Today and tomorrow and Saturday we are in the pitch of mama moon’s darkness, as the Quickening of Spring Tide continues to push us all along. It is a good time for review, rest, stillness, retreat. A really good time for release, especially focused on any of that old winter funky funk still hanging around~It is a good time to enrich yourself in the nutritive, healing darkness of Mama Moon’s complete shadow by slowing down, and listening. It is the perfect time of year to consciously intention set.
Give yourself the good grace this weekend of getting outdoors on bare feet, grounding and releasing with the tide of retreat…but also sourcing and receiving with the accompanying movement of Sap Rise, of oncoming Spring.
Be well, dear ones, be oh so good to You
