I’ve been living in California for 20 years, so I’ve not experienced a harsh winter for two decades. The promise of relief from a hard winter is symbolic and mystical for me, just as it’s been for witches, sages and mages since time began. The logic ignites the magic. Equinox is a time when the shadow and light are in perfect balance. Today we celebrate balance – the exact balance between the Light and Darkness.
That said, it’s a wintery day here in Northern California which is cause for celebration – it’s raining and when it rains it’s like gold pouring from the sky. It’s a beautiful day. These are from my backyard –
The Kogi, Arhuaco and Wiwa mamos and zagas (medicine men and women) I’ve been blessed to work with in the Sierra Nevada of Colombia see balance as the basis of my energetic skill sit, so today is my birthday. It’s a big one! I’ll be 50 this year by Gregorian Calendar accounting. Happy Birthday to me!
