The Sun has finally joined us here in the northern hemisphere, the first blossoms show and the world is filled with bright new colors. The Sun will gradually reach its apex of power after this day, with each day becoming longer. This is a time when day and night are equally balanced, and thus an in?between time. The Earth awakens from the slumber of the cold, dark half of the year and is tilled for the first sowing of seed. As a time for putting crops in the ground, it is now time for us to "plant our seed" in that we are beginning to actively work toward the goals we set for ourselves at Samhain. This is also a time to reinforce balance in our own lives.
