March: Moon of the Wind

Full-MoonTonight’s full moon is known by some Pagans as the “moon of the wind.”  On this night we are reminded that winter is losing it’s grip and spring is beginning to awaken.  This windy month symbolically blows away the things we need to remove from our lives.  It’s a good time to reflect on what we need to let go of so that we can move forward.  Our houses are not the only thing that need a spring cleaning.  Our hearts, minds and spirits do as well.

Many Christians are going through a similar process and asking the same questions.  It’s the season of Lent and one of the things we ask ourselves is “What do we need to die to, in order for new life to emerge?”  The ashes that were placed on our foreheads on Ash Wednesday are accompanied by the words “Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”  If that doesn’t put your life into perspective, I don’t know what will!

So, let sweep away all the things that are cluttering our lives and choking our vitality and creativity.  It is only when we do this that we will be ready to celebrate Ostara/Easter where new life emerges all around us.
