1 Equinox. 4 Spring Skies. 7 Questions.

In a few hours, at 23:21 GMT, the centre of the sun will cross the equator and move further north (at least for us in the northern hemisphere). Night and day are now of equal length. Starting tomorrow, the days will triumph.

The vernal equinox heralds spring, and while all around us nature comes to life, we get a perfect opportunity to do the same.

It's time to dust off ideas and plans that were stowed away for the winter. Time to shake off the remnants of hibernation and start dreaming about the months to come.

Go out, plant a garden - or a flower pot, reinvent yourself, start a book club, make time for that hobby you always think or talk about, work more, work less, plan a trip, call a friend, ... not because you have to but because you can!

Here are a few questions that could spark more ideas ...

  1. What was the most important thing you learnt last year?
  2. Which of the things you learnt last year - and processed during the winter - can you start putting to good use?
  3. If you had some energy to spare, who or what would you spend it on?
  4. What can you do to feel (even) better about yourself?
  5. Which side of yourself would you like to develop further?
  6. Which mistakes will you allow yourself to make while doing so? (Note: if you reply 'none', keep repeating the question until you come up with another answer.)
  7. What can you do for the people around you that would make them very happy?
... and 2 more spring evening skies to gaze at while you're thinking.

I wish you a great springtime, in which you feel alive, loved & in love and more true to yourself than ever.

  1. Yes! Spring. It can never come too soon. I agree I feel a sense of renewal this time of year. In fact I think our resolutions would be better adhered to if made at the equinox instead of the new year. :)

  2. Great way of looking at it!

    I agree, there's something strange about preparing for a new year in the middle of winter, when everything around us is still asleep and we're processing the past year's harvest, on many levels.

  3. Beautiful photos, K.C. I always have so much more energy this time of year. I love it!

  4. Thanks, Talli :-)

    Spring is such a magical time! :-)
