The children and I celebrated the magic of spring today, welcoming the Spring Equinox with a walk by the river and joyful play at the park. This afternoon we are going to finish our birdfeeders and plant wheatgrass seeds in pots to watch the magic and wonder of springtime growth right on our windowsils.
The spring equinox is one of the four great solar festivals of the year. Day and night are equal, poised and balanced, but about to tip over on the side of light. The spring equinox is sacred to dawn, youth, the morning star and the east. Just as the dawn is the time of new light, so the vernal equinox is the time of new life.
Today, Celebrate with your children the magic of the season....the end of the long winter's slumber to the rebirth of the earth.
