At last ... Spring is nearly here. The Vernal Equinox is on Sunday, March 20. Day and Night will be equal and gradually the days become longer and longer than night.
Time to crawl out from our hibernation. Those of us you have already rushed out of hibernation a little prematurely are suffering a bit with the cold patches, but people really do smile more when the sun's out.

I was having a little trouble believing Spring was nearly here, until I saw Tamas' photograph. Tamas lives in Ibiza so is further ahead than the UK but we're nearly there!
Just the sight of a new shoot on a twig gives us reason for optimism that the bush has survived the winter. So please, sometime on Sunday, spend some time thinking about what you would love to happen over the summer. (Even if it's just for a few minutes before you go to sleep). This is a time for optimism and growth so tap into nature and give yourself a treat.
Most of the time we balance our wishes with sensible logic. Well, on Sunday I'm going to spoil myself and focus on what I would like to achieve over the next few months. I'll really go for it, because I know from previous experience that there's nothing like assuming everything will be alright unless proven otherwise.
Have fun with it. It's just between you and whoever you pray to. If you don't pray then maybe consider throwing your wishes out there into the planets while they are in position for the Equinox. Tap into a special 24 hours and have fun with it. Best case Scenario.
Happy First Day of Spring
