The Sun

If you would visualise your life as the passage of the Sun through the sky then you would find the harmony that you seek.

When the Sun rises in the morning there is no limit set for its radiance and no boundary set for its passage. Be then like the Sun which shines on the just and the unjust, for who shall say which is which, and who having wisdom would try to discriminate, for the Sun has no need to give to one only, for it is everlasting and its power infinite.

The Spring Equinox (March 20/21) 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.
