Happy Spring Equinox everyone! (Well, at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere!) It also happens to coincide with a super full moon tonight, which brings an increased intensity of energy today.
Spring Equinox is a time of equilibrium between the day and the night, the masculine and the feminine. It is a time of increasing light; a reminder to trust that the light returns, even when it was seemingly lost or diminished during the darker days of winter. (For those of you working on trust, symbolically this is important to take in.) With spring comes new life, rejuvenation and fertility; a perfect time to bring forth all of your creative ideas. It is time to release the old (thus the term, “spring cleaning”), and embrace the new.
This particular super full moon brings with it infinite potential for creation. Robbyne LaPlant says, “Super full moons can make people feel restless, as they are releasing old issues from the past that are coming up to surface in a big way. We are each breaking through old illusions.” I know many of you are feeling this. The energy has been intense. The new is calling to each of us and in order to step into that, we need to release the old ties/patterns/behaviors etc. that no longer suit us or where we’re headed. We are being called to participate in a world becoming new. No more hiding or believing the lies that our negative egos perpetuate: “I’m not good enough, I don’t matter,” etc. etc. You are good enough and you do matter and it’s time to lead from those beliefs.
To help with that and to use these powerful energies today, here is a simple ritual for tonight:
Think of 3 things you would like to release that no longer serve you. They can be behaviors, habits, blockages- anything you are truly ready to let go of. Write them down and ideally burn them, but if you can’t, then rip them up into tiny pieces and throw them away in your trash bin outside of your apartment/house. You want them out of your space. I will note, that sometimes issues stick around because there is a lesson we need to learn from them. You could ask, before burning the paper, that if there is still something you need to learn, to help you do so in elegant ways, without the pain of said issue.
Next, write 3 things you would like to create/birth by summer solstice, June 21st. Maybe one of the creations will take longer to manifest, that’s ok, write it down and know that you’ll be working towards it these next few months. You can then either bury your desires, you can place them somewhere sacred like in a dream box or under a crystal, - get creative. The point is to consciously engage your new dreams with clarity, and put them out into the world. See yourself celebrating them manifesting, feel the joy of it, and then come back to present time and take action. Use the power of this super full moon and equinox to lift and elevate your life.
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
