April Musings

April is here! The snow is melting, the birds are returning and our hearts (as well as our days!) are lighter. Spring has sprung...
I love this time of year. It holds such potential, such promise. All things are new again, second chances to bloom, life renews and we flourish.
Winter coats are packed away, boots discarded and winter tires replaced with lighter treads. Lawns are raked, weeds removed and seeds planted.
For me, September has always been a month of new starts - probably hearkening back to school days as a kid. April, though, is our true re-birthing, a time to take stock, prune, and plan.
Every New Moon, we review and discard what doesn't serve us, set intentions and make an action plan. Each Full Moon, we celebrate victories, remove loose ends and adjust our course where necessary.
Our New Moon in April serves a dual purpose because in our Hemisphere, the Earth is also readying itself for growth, for change and for renewal.
This is a wonderful time to take stock of what works, what doesn't, what is in your garden, and what you want to add.
Reflect, restore, renew and rejoice.
