Midpoint between solstice and equinoxFebruary 2, 2008
Even though there is ice on the trees and a cold rain falling, hints of Persephone’s return are everywhere. The winter rye blankets the surrounding fields with large swaths of green, the days are noticeably longer, and pale green shoots are reaching for the light. Whether we celebrate Imbolc, Brigid, Candlemas, or ground hog day – this day marks a turn of the wheel. We are now at the midpoint between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.

What stirrings are you feeling as the ground warms up and buds are imperceptibly swelling?
