At the farm the seasonal tides are changing. We’ve lambs on the ground now, with their fresh faces foretelling of the season ahead. I can already imagine them running through the dandelions.
This Spring Equinox (and New Moon), also known as the Vernal Equinox, is this Friday, March 20th. There will be an equal 12 hours of day and night as the sun crosses the equator on it’s way northward. I bow to this as a time when I feel like the plants truly start to awake from their hibernation. The word vernal has always sat in me with the emotion of a wooly animal curled up in a quiet slumber. The dark (waning) phases of the moon bring with it increased inward time. As we cross through this earth – time landmark on Friday, I can imagine myself starting to reach out, stretching after a long winter of inner work and farm business planning.
