Across the globe, signs of spring are here! For those who live where there are distinct seasons, it’s easy to see the world re-awaken with blooming flowers and trees, birds returning and people emerging from their houses.
On Facebook, my New England friends post pictures of budding purple crocuses and brave blades of grass emerging after the deluge of snow.
Even in Florida, there are signs of spring (mostly because everyone complains about their allergies) but I smell the orange blossoms and see the palms flowering.
The signs are more subtle here and disappear fast into the broiler, commonly known as summer.
But before they do, spring is a wonderful time to re-awaken.
There is a rune that looks like a capital I, Isa. When I used to read my runes regularly, I’d always kind of gasp when I’d pull this one because Isa symbolizes “no movement” which to me meant stuck.
Isa is more accurately described as standstill and metaphorically corresponds to the season of winter, a time of dormancy, of seeds waiting.
When I put my own self-process into the natural life cycle, I quickly understand the need for stasis before activity. This has enabled me to embrace the stillness, the emptiness, the waiting - the winter before spring.
But now this season of gestation is over, the seeds are awakening, ready to germinate and create new life, new beginnings, new opportunities.
What does this spring hold for you?
What projects have lain dormant and are now ready to have new life breathed into them?
Spring is a time of shifting so this season may require a re-orientation or perhaps even some re-prioritizing. I suppose that’s why we spring clean – to brush out the old and make way for the new.
For me, it’s simple. There are natural projects that yearn for my attention and it’s time for me to plant and get my hands dirty in the earth. It is also time to delve deeper into a few creative ventures I’m currently undertaking primarily focused on writing and course development.
So as you approach this spring season, what opportunities are lying in wait for you?
Is it time to make a move, start a new class, finish up a project that’s been lingering?
Ask for guidance from within and you’ll know what awaits you. Bring yourself back in alignment with nature and allow this awakening energy to stir your inner voice and creativity.
