Spending A Season With Water

water-one

I have been working with water for a season. I would love to be able to report back that all of my work has been successful. The truth is this is very hard work for me. Too much water makes me feel so heavy and (remember I am a Gemini) not enough makes me feel empty.

Strangely enough, I feel best when I’m working with water solo. I can commune with it in the tub, or at my local park. Alone with water, it is healing for me, but when I start to involve others it gets kind of out of control. Being an empath I’m always trying to figure out which energy is mine and what belongs to others. People with lots of water in their charts can be hard for me to be around for long periods of time. Boundaries, always working on boundaries.

I think the biggest lesson I have learned is that I am simply not builtĀ for tons of water. Where water comes into play in my life the wells run deep, but it isn’t where I feel at home. I most want to be up in the sky with the birds or nestled down on the grass with the mother.

For now, I am going to give my water work a rest. I need to bring myself back into balance and what I need most is fire and some air.

Imbolc Blessings!

Happy Imbolc! I cannot tell you how glad I am to see January in my rear view mirror. My Imbolc celebrations have been simple but satisfying. I put out a bowl to collect snow for my bottle of holy water, sadly it did not snow enough for me to really collect anything. I spent time tending to my plants and baking bread. I reorganized my kitchen and got rid of stuff I no longer need. I cleaned up my home and today I plan to do a house blessing. Thanks to Bridget I have experienced a big surge of creative energy! It feels good to have that flame reignited within me. This month is going to be very busy and stressful so I need all the help I can get.

How did you spend your Imbolc?
