Seasonal Forecast // The Season for Loving - Spring 2019

This Seasonal Forecast was written by Rachel Capurso of Aeolian Heart. Lyrical inspiration for The Season for Loving Seasonal Forecast for Spring 2019 was drawn from Time of the Season by The Zombies.

The wheel of the year has turned, marked by the Spring Equinox on March 20th, where night and day become equal. In the northern hemisphere, the Earth’s tilt now favors the Sun, heralding the return of Spring.

As the light grows stronger, the Earth’s vernal magic is awakened from its wintry slumber. The heaviness will begin to lift and your spirits will come alive. Every Springtime feels special, but the Spring season of 2019 is initiated with a little extra magic! For the first time in over 40 years, the first day of Spring will occur at the Full Moon.

The March Full Moon is traditionally called the Worm Moon because it is said to stir the worms back to life. As the depths of the Earth start to churn, dormant energies will arise.

To live in alignment with the seasons is the most ancient form of magic. To connect with this power, acknowledge that you are reborn as the Earth is reborn.

It's the time of the season
When love runs high

Spring always seems like the loveliest time of year. It is the blissful fulfillment of the Earth’s promise of renewal. In a flourish of great drama, the bleakness of winter is suddenly transformed by the melting warmth and the majestic emergence of green.

In a wild burst of enthusiasm this green stretches over everything: clovers erupting in the field, moss climbing over stones, and new leaves electrifying the tip of every branch.

The celebration begins with buzzing and blossoming, as the whole world explodes into flowers. Everything is dazzled by color, rainbows of petals dancing through meadows, all swirling the air with sweetness.

Everything starts to glow with potential and the mood becomes increasingly inspired.

And this time, give it to me easy
And let me try with pleasured hands

The renewal of the Earth seems to quicken the pulse, opening your heart to great affection. There is such splendor in the grass, such a romance with the trees.

The enchantment of Spring is a return to innocence and wonder. And the Earth is deeply honored when you appreciate all the beauty that surrounds.

It’s the time of the season for loving

Like any great drama, the season of Spring plays out in three significant acts.

When Love Runs High
March 20th-April 20th

In the two weeks following the Spring Equinox, the deepest places in your your heart will be stirred. The last days of March will feel so romantic, like there’s music in the air. All the blended notes of Springtime will initiate a period of great healing and love.

A sense of joyful destiny will build as the Earth awakens. You will know that something amazing is about to happen.

The New Moon on April 5th firmly establishes the frenzied growth of Springtime. In agricultural wisdom, the New Moon is the time for planting seeds because the power of rebirth is enhanced. The first New Moon of Spring offers a very special rush and push to thrive.

This is the time for rising action fueled by new confidence. Let the trees and the flowers inspire a feeling of growth, flourishing and achievement.

You’ll have the energy to initiate actions that have long been delayed. To honor this time, you may set some inspired intentions, planting the seeds of your hopes and dreams.

Imagine your hopes and dreams as germinating seeds, actively spreading their roots beneath the soil.

The second Full Moon of Spring occurs on April 19th. Everything will be on fire with motivation and courage. The Full Moon is like an exclamation point to mark this time of the season. You may feel a sense of accomplishment, the joy of having blazed a new trail. With the pace of life moving so quickly, everything may feel like a surprise.

Imagine your hopes and dreams sprouting up towards the warmth of the sun.

With Pleasured Hands
April 21st-May 21st

In the last days of April, everything will feel bright and kinetic. To maintain your poise amidst this flurry of activity, stay connected to the wisdom and beauty of nature.

On May 4th, the New Moon establishes a different tone and feeling. Things slow down a little. During the beginning of Spring, everything felt wild and free. But now as the middle of the season arrives, it is the time to start shaping and containing your energies.

The two weeks that follow the New Moon are all about transforming the madness of wildflowers into a well-tended garden. Managing your time is the most important intention you can set. Why?

Because life really becomes an art when you make time for love, self-care, leisure and work.

Imagine your hopes and dreams as budding flowers in a well-tended garden.

When the Full Moon arrives on May 18th, a steadier rhythm becomes established. Your interests become practical, more invested in plans for future.

This is excellent for problem-solving and re-assessing your priorities. So much has grown in the last two months. But now your projects, responsibilities and relationships may start to get tangled. Conflicts of interest may appear, requiring careful attention.

This Full Moon will offer you a chance to clear some extra space, trimming anything that is holding you back. Tending to your schedule can make all the difference in your health, wealth and happiness.

See your hopes and dreams blooming into beautiful flowers, each with a place in the Sun.

Take You in the Sun
May 22nd-June 21st

The last days of May are fueled by a burning curiosity. The Sun has risen so high in the heavens that your mind becomes lit up by the desire to know and experience the whole world!

You’ll feel the need to cultivate your ideas, spread your message and increase your influence. To do this, you must seek out knowledge.

Like pollinating flowers, at this time of the season, so much information is mixing and mingling to create a more sophisticated understanding. Use your best discernment to ask sincere questions and listen well.

On June 3rd, the last New Moon of Spring scatters the energies. The plant life is at a fever pitch and every cross-breeze is dusted with pollen and seeds. In this state of dispersion, you may feel like you have to grow in a thousand different directions at once. Remember the priorities you established last month and stay focused.

In this last weeks of Spring, the potent creative powers can be used to bring something important into fruition: an art project, a health practice, a business, or a relationship. This requires a selective process, choosing one area of life to pay special attention to over the coming months.

Just as individual bees pollinate one type of flower at a time, it is now your job to carry one special dream into the future with extra love and attention.

Imagine a honeybee, visiting only its favorite kind of flower.

In the two weeks leading up to the Full Moon on June 17th, a lot of tension will arise. You will have to sacrifice a lot in order to cultivate the growth that you desire. To avoid distractions, it may become necessary to guard your creative time with serious effort.

The Full Moon in mid-June is a saving grace, a relief from the tension. It inspires a heartfelt sense of generosity and cheerfulness. The Springtime is almost over, but there is so much to be grateful for.

In the last four days of Spring, sit back and appreciate how much your life has blossomed. Let your soul speak as you dream of the coming Summer...

Beneath the sun of promised lands, imagine how the flowers will ripen into fruit.

“...while Spring is in the world
my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom…
...sweet Spring is your
time is my time is our
time for Springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love…”
