Spring Equinox Circle: Embracing Our Inner Wild

“Some days I am more wolf than woman, and I am still learning how to stop apologizing for my wild.”

-Nikita Gill

Also named Ostara, after the Germanic goddess of spring, Spring Equinox is a time for celebration of awakened fertility and rebirth. Life is stirring, the heartbeat of the earth mother is quickening, our vitality awakening. Spring is a powerful season of change- time to cast off the heavy cloak of winter and step out- feel the wind in our hair, heed the desires pulsing within and embrace this time of self-actualisation and growth.

This season encourages bravery. Taking up the reins of our life and stepping forward can come with self-doubt, fear or sometimes reckless enthusiasm. Spring carries the essence of the Maiden, Trailblazer, Warrior and Wild One. Like a teenager, we may feel anywhere between completely awkward and over-confident as we begin to take some new strides towards growth, shedding an old self in the process.

Luckily, the balance of light and dark of equinox gives us perspective which serves our decision-making power. It shows us what we need to step forward while still honouring our inner needs. It is a good time for clarity and taking action on our dreams.

We may wish to ask ourselves:

-What are my instincts and desires telling me?

-In what ways do I wish to grow and expand?

-What fears or old baggage needs to be shed so I can fully embrace the new?

-What actions can I take now towards my dreams?

-How can I embrace my selfhood and express my individuality now?

At this in-person Hearthfire Circle, we will discuss the themes of the season and go on a guided journey to explore the wildnerness with an animal ally. We will gain insight on how to move forward with confidence and renewed vitality. We will release old baggage into the fire, and nourish our inner growth with a ritual and craft- painting pots and blessing the soil and seeds.
