Spring is a time of growth. It is also a time of pairing off for most of the animal life on this half of the planet. There is nest-building and plumage, and an intensity to all interactions that culminates in the continuation of genetic lines. I can imagine how hard it was for Persephone and Hades during the Spring. I think of them as being in love and clueless, learning and growing as each season passed. I think Hades probably tried very hard to make her happy, but she would have had a lot to overcome to accept it. To my mind, he is the embodiment of all that is elusive to my understanding of men. He would have been strong, protective, but mysterious and gruff at times. She would have been moody and impulsive, but earnest. Things are never simple, are they? Personally, we are experiencing some of that here. There is painful growth, re-evaluation and hard work, and a fierce determination to keep things moving forward.

As we head into the new moon, take a moment to sit in the starlight and ponder the beauty and wonder of it all. You are worth it.
