About the Program
The Spring Equinox is a point of balance which marks the halfway point between the Winter and Summer Solstice. It is for this reason that we honor this moment as a threshold crossing that leads us from one state of being into another, from the darkness into light. The Spring Equinox also initiates us into the sign of Aries and a new astrological year.
Spring is a call to action, a call to movement, aliveness, and taking new risks. The internal quickening of early Spring is now longing to be expressed externally in how we are showing up in the world and our relations. Storms stir up stagnancy in inner and outer landscape, winds welcome change, rains replenish our roots, and warming sunlight softens hard edges. The energy of Spring is tantalizing, arousing, and beckons each of us to break free from the confines of winter's dormancy as we reach toward new horizons to claim our own becoming.
