In Montreal, it's a grey, drizzly day. A typical Spring day in fact. Yesterday, on the last day of Winter, it snowed, big puffy flakes, as though the Old Man was saying, it may be my last Official Day, but I'm still here... you ain't rid of me.
But the days are getting longer. The world is awakening. Life is returning. The city is born anew. You can feel it.
So, celebrate! Spring is here, all weather to the contrary! Soon there will be green grass and miniskirts! And the SUN!
Today is the Spring Equinox, also called Ostara, the celebration of the first true day of Spring. Days and nights are equal, and generally speaking it is the time of the birth of the Male Aspect of the Divine in his aspect of the Sun Child - the world awakens, life begins to grow anew and energy is rising.
