Happy first day of spring!!!
On the first day of spring, lightness & darkness are equal. In the days to come, the light will continue shining brighter and brighter until it reaches its peak. For the season of spring, things can only get better. As the sunlight increases, light is shined upon us, and the truth is revealed. The start of spring is uncomfortable, as we feel more exposed (both physically & metaphorically.) All that has been kept in the dark in autumn and buried deep in winter, reveal itself. Mid-spring brings heavy rain and dramatic thunderstorms as we awaken to everything coming to light. “Spring awakening” heightens our senses and makes us feel alive once again after a long, stiff slumber of hibernation. Finally, the seeds we planted at the start of winter, the start of a new sun cycle, are seen. The flowers are blooming! Spring is about waking up, facing the truth, welcoming the light, revealing ourselves, and learning how to proudly bask in the sun after hiding for so long. Spring represents fertility and children/youth, symbolizing rabbits and eggs.

“Wanna take her for a ride on a big jet plane.”

5. Do It, Try It — M83
“Listen to the sound of a broken heart calling for a sign of love.”

6. Get Up, Stand Up — Bob Marley
“Most people think Great God will come from the skies, take away everything, and make everybody feel high.”
You cannot hide away in darkness forever. The lightness will always come back to shine. But that does not mean blessing will automatically fall your way, you have to take hold of the opportunities being thrown your way and fight for justice.
