Wondering how it is you should live in season? . . . .
Winter is a time of moon energy. The active period of summer is over and autumn has slowly transformed into winter. Although nature isn’t vibrant or seen at this time, it’s still there, its energy is simply withdrawn into the core of the earth. Winter is all about inward expression of energy. It’s a time to rest, spend time yourself and your loved ones. It’s time to mediate, sleep, relax and recharge for the seasons ahead. It’s a time to enjoy nourishing meals with friends, for cups of tea, reading books and selfcare.
Spring is a time for rebirth. Everything is slowly waking up and coming to life again after a deep slumber during the winter, flowers begin to bloom, lambs are born, the sun gets a little warmer and we start to hear the birdsong a little more. Energy is rising and the feeling of new beginnings hangs in the air. It’s the time for cleansing, for setting intentions and planning and starting to plant or seed the things you’d like to see come to life.A good time to clear clutter from your home, to cleanse or detoxify your body for all that summer will bring.

Autumn is a great time to finish any project you started in the spring or summer. You planted the seeds in the springtime, worked for it during the summer and now it is time to finish it and reap the benefits. It is a time to be grateful for all the abundance around us, and share meals with our loved ones to nourish ourselves before the cold winter. Slow down and get extra aware of the beauty and abundance surrounding you. Harvest the fruits of your work. Spend time outside while the sun is still shining to take advantage of that last warm sunlight. Autumn is also a time when our intuition is strong, so listen. Let go of things that no longer serve you and set clear boundaries.
