The Spring Equinox is the time of equal day and night, where the balance finally tips in favour of the light, as the cardinal fire sign of Aries fires up the year. Time of conscious seed-sowing, acting in the light. Sow those seeds and nurture them with purpose, plant your ideas with focussed attention and let the light itself unfold them. Mothering Sunday (Mother’s Day) falls around this time and reminds us to honour not only our own mother, but the mother of all mothers and the mother of all, without whom there is no creation and no renewal. On the Sunday nearest the first full moon after the Spring Equinox comes the Christian sol-lunar festival of Easter, when the resurrected Christ rises from the tomb to spread the light. In modern times the ancient goddess Eostre’s fertile eggs and rampant rabbits have been transformed into a harmless chocolate fest, sugar-sweet and bunny-twee.

Spring talk (Friday March 20th)

Spring is a time for the resurrection of new life, where the invisible seeds in the soil reappear as new growth for the nourishment of humanity. It is time for the force of expansion to take over from the state of standing still, it is time for us to rise from sleep and go to work.

Our work on the material level provides food and shelter for us and our mental activities provide food for thought and understanding to enable us to create a better world.  The work we do needs to facilitate an expansion of our conscious awareness of life and its greater purpose. Through our work we need to cultivate a more diverse and deeper understanding of ourselves, others and the groups that we form. This applies to all levels and kinds of work that we are involved with.

It is not enough to only expand our wealth, land, bank balance or the size of your body. It is not enough to be externally good looking or brave, these two conditions need to be expressed internally in the way that we confront and use our mind.  The thought always comes before the event, the mind needs to control the animal impulses from within.
