There's a nature bursting forth atmosphere this week, starting with Spring Equinox, marked by Sun into first sign Aries. It's the astrological new year!
Looking at the solar calendar, the Spring Equinox, when day and night are equal, is one of the four big turning points of the year. The rhythm of the seasons are a chance to seed and develop your most longed-for intentions.Seasonal Intention Setting:
- Spring Equinox (March 19) is the time of conception, to put forth intentions that are most meaningful and desired.
- At Summer Solstice (June 20), what's in development is ripened and brought to tangible form.
- Autumnal Equinox (September 22) begins a time of refining, streamlining, weighing what's taking shape.
- Winter Solstice (December 21) takes us into restful musing on how to share what's been created, as a legacy and contribution to the whole.
It's a momentous time for any on-the-ball intention setters out there. But if it's snuck up on you, like it has for me, this entire week of the darkening Moon is for super alert soul searching. The Aries New Moon is Thursday, and the three days after, extend the intention-setting window. My philosophy is better not to set intentions, if they're a rush job. Take time to choose goals that are achievable and are rooted in your overall sense of life purpose.
Of course, a big part of experiencing the New Moon mystique is surrender and being receptive to something to emerge out of the dark. If you're overwhelmed, or don't have definite intentions, resting and tuning inward is always a wise approach. Happy Spring Equinox and New Moon to you all!Getty Images
