A portal opens with this airy new moon in expansive Aquarius.
Solar and Lunar Imbolc are precisely aligned.
New growth is stirring.
But with Chiron in the mix, old wounds may also be exposed.
Stay present and look closely.
A new perspective on how to heal wounds that have long plagued you and your lineage is right there in front of you.
The seeds are stirring beneath our feet.
In the northern hemisphere, we are halfway to spring!
Light a candle
Offer thanks for the turning of the seasons and the return of the light.

Mary’s entire poem:
When I am Among the Trees
When I am among the trees,
especially the willows and the honey locust,
equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,
they give off such hints of gladness.
I would almost say that they save me, and daily.
I am so distant from the hope of myself,
in which I have goodness, and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.
Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
“and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine.”

Full moon in fiery Leo fans our inner flame and stokes our passions. The total lunar eclipse exposes our shadow and stirs the pot even more.
Focus on acts that nurture and feed you deeply. Self-love and understanding is needed now.
Earthy new moon in Capricorn and a partial solar eclipse bathe us in the energy of so much to do, so little time. Resist the urge to make a bunch of decisions and complete all your projects NOW!
Ground to Mama Earth.
Slow down to her slow, sacred winter rhythm.
Relax – you have time.
