As the convergence of this new season, the new moon and Aries season quicken the world around us and the one inside of us, I wonder how you are feeling.
This time of year always brings with it a little bit of anxiety in my being. Where I live the awakening feels fast. My body is still shedding Winter and the pace at which the energy is moving all around brings with it rapid fire ideas, a general increase in vibration and the inner conflict of ready not ready.
On this day where day and night hold equal court, I invite you to pause and find the sensation of this moment within.
What do you feel? Desire? What does your body crave? Movement? Stillness? Something in between? What if you gave yourself 5 minutes to just move in a way that felt like you in this now?
As we move toward the solar energy of Spring and Summer I’ve been feeling my longing for my magical community swell and the void where my women’s circle used to reside making itself bigger, darker and more empty in sensation.
For those of you who are new to the list or perhaps don’t recall, my women’s circle of 19 years disbanded at Solstice. Although it was high time for this dissolution, and the magic between us had been quieted and untended for some time, the space this group of sisters took up in my world was big, powerful, familiar and I relied on it.
In this absence my initial reaction was to launch into something new. To create a new group immediately. (and to be honest I did try but the timing wasn’t right and the universe apparently wanted me sloooow down). So I’ve been hanging with the void, feeling the loss and the grief and with the arrival of Spring this feels somehow more acute.
What to do with this now?
I’m feeling into the edges to discover what will emerge. I’m looking for signs, invitations and connections and being gentle with my tender heart, and calming the fire that still wants to leap without looking.
I’m sitting in reflection. In pause. I’m noticing what the convergence of this moment is igniting and deepening within me. I’m listening.
We are welcoming the emergence of Spring with our own convergence. One of Wise Women coming together to make magic through sharing of knowledge and practice.
