How is this Spring different and how I am different? At the beginning of each new season, I ask and answer this question. Not to judge if things are better or worse, not to plan how to improve a situation or my life --just to take notice from the present perspective.
It reminds me that my life journey is like a spiral. I feel a sense of returning to an oh-so-familiar point that's slightly different now -- because of what I've learned and experienced, and how I've grown and changed.
The newly-stitched spiral up there resonates with me. I think most of us feel a resonance with the spiral because it's everywhere, from our DNA to the center of a sunflower to the very galaxy we live in.
Today is moonday, the second day of the still-full moon under the sign of Scorpio. I call it a still-full moon because the effects of a moon phase are often felt for a few days before and after. So this is still a time of fulfillment and fruition and, maybe more importantly, acknowledging those accomplishments.
Scorpio's day qualities are cool and moist, sounds like Spring to me. Scorpio affects the health of the sexual organs and the urinary tract, making it a good time to treat conditions of those body systems. It takes us deeper emotionally and mentally, and can cause us to feel ill at ease, unsettled -- a hot bath may be especially calming at the end of a Scorpio day. I can always recognize Scorpio days by the way I feel, often more comfortable with solitary work or activities like gardening or reading.
