Oh spring rain we are so very grateful!! Filling our buckets, calling the whole family outside to see the gifts you bestow upon us. Some of you may know I garden religiously and for the past few years I have been planting according to the Biodynamic Calendar. This Calender guides plantings not only by the waxing and the waning of the moon, but which Zodiac sign the moon is in. Basically you plant roots, in earth signs, leaves in water signs, flowers in air signs and fruits in fire signs. It is hard to say if it is “working” but it gives me guidance & rhythm, it also calls me to pay attention more to how my day activities are guided by the night. I have started noticing all kinds of subtle things, the heat of fire days, the winds of air days…..
What has struck me most this month is the water moons. Right now the moon is in Scorpio, a water sign…and water it did bring, a spring thunder shower, first of the year!! Last week, when the moon was in Cancer, yes, water again, though in the form of a luscious snow! Just another way to pay attention, just a deepening of relating to the myriad of mysterious forces that are working on and around us every day in the subtle magical ways.
