In the northern hemisphere we celebrated Ostara, the Spring Equinox, yesterday.  From now on, the days will be longer than the nights, again, and a new circle of growth begins throughout the Wheel of the Year.

New beginnings often come with deep transformation and in times like these it seems more likely than ever, that this will be the case for us as children of our Mother Earth.  So, let us get ready and see where the road takes us!

A little more than a week ago, our road took us along the sunlit pastures of the LCA Sülldorf in the West of Hamburg, Germany.

The calm that can be experienced in this Landscape Conservation Area always amazes me and I experience it as a true treat.  The sounds lift me up, the air which usually comes with a little breeze refreshes me and the smells and trees ground me while I feel deeply connected throughout all the beautiful encounters along the way.

At a closer look, the signs of Spring were already visible…  and very audible, too, as the birds were singing their lovely tunes and seemed to be particularly spritely.  While walking on into the direction of the nearby LCA Forest Park Marienhöhe we could notice how the sound carpet changed.  So did the smell of the air, away from open pastures with the old trees, closer to the woods.

As it usually is the case in times of transition we not only saw the messengers of the new season but also some Autumn messengers who made it through the dark winter and are now shining in a new light – like, for example, those snow berries inside the otherwise still bare hedge.

We simply enjoyed the journey and walked with open eyes and open hearts for the presents the path may present to us in the present moment.

The light breeze turned into slightly blustery gusts, from time to time, blowing away all the old thoughts while the beautiful sunlight melted all the darkness and gave way for some reflection.

The light permeated everything, made all the hidden and concealed corners inside us transparent and immersed the world into a healing liquid gold…

It inspired the crocuses to open up their little cups and to allow themselves to be filled with this beautiful abundance while the hazel performed an abun-dance of joy.

Who would not believe in fairies after seeing this?!

As Ostara was nigh, grandmother moon came out early and held her watch over our path.  Ostara is a sun feast, however, this particular Equinox is bringing a lot of new light which the moon was helping to reflect to us.

Maybe it also was a message to take some time for reflection, these days, so that we can allow ourselves to release those aspects of the old that no longer serve us while allowing all the beautiful new energy to fall into place.

The moon also is connected to the element water.  Therefore she is the patron of feelings, flow and the female energy.  Thus, it was not particularly surprising to see that the little duck pond had high water after the rain that had poured down the previous day.  The duck lady we met throughout our visit at the pond seemed to agree with this and to be rather unimpressed by all the water masses.

With the last light of the blue hour we made our way back to the bus that would take us home.  Next time, there will still be daylight at this time of the evening…
