March brings a change of season: Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere and Spring in the North. It is a beautiful practice to tune into Nature’s rhythms right now and embody the shifts that naturally occur.
In Melbourne, the days grow shorter and cooler as we naturally begin to withdraw from the growing season. The leaves on trees start to dry and shrivel, a reminder that we need to nourish and nurture ourselves as winter approaches.
Mabon on 21st March brings the mid-harvest festival and the Autumn Equinox. It is a time of giving thanks for the things we have, whether it is abundant crops or other blessings. It’s a time of plenty, of gratitude, and of sharing our abundance with those less fortunate.
In the northern hemisphere, Ostara or Eostre, the Spring Equinox is welcomed, returning to warmer days and rebirth and renewal. A time to celebrate planting and the new crop season.
The SEVEN OF WANDS sees obstacles, opposition, or challenges to overcome in the first week, but nothing that you can’t get on top of. It may be a bit of a struggle, and you will need to fight to get results or get what you want.
But with effort, perseverance, and persistence, you will achieve the goals you desire in the end. Drawing on your self-confidence, self-belief, and self-improvement will bring the success that you want. Don’t give up even though you may feel discouraged or disheartened. Keep going as success is coming.
The WHEEL OF FORTUNE reminds us of the cyclic nature of life. What goes up must come down, and what goes down must come up again. If you have been through tough times, then an improvement on the way. The turnaround you are hoping for is coming this month. Also, a significant, unexpected change will come. The Wheel of Change is in motion, and it’s time for a change. Situations cannot remain as they are.
DEATH in week 3 brings transformation, change, endings and new beginnings. Just surrender, let go of the old and allow the new to come in. One door is closing, but another door is opening. Changes are inevitable, and all endings make way for new, fresh possibilities. There is no growth without change.
The last week of March brings the ACE OF CUPS, fulfilment, joy and peace. There will be opportunities for sharing love and connecting with loved ones as relationships strengthen. You may find yourself falling in love, or your relationship goes to a deeper level and fills your heart with joy.
It’s time for forgiveness, so open your heart and be receptive to healing and love. Let your love light shine through. You’ll also be getting in touch with your inner voice and intuition, so respond to the messages that come from within. Relax and allow peace to fill your mind, body and soul.
The Celtic Tree Oracle card “NGETAL REED” represents action, movement, focus, purpose, progress and skill. It represents Mabon and the Autumn Equinox. Celebrate completions and prepare for Winter.
The Ngetal Reed provides a portal for direct action to fulfil your dreams, desires and intentions. Focus on your desire outcome this month, and take action.
The “SAD EMBRACE” reminds us the loss is a part of life. It may be a long-cherished dream that you are letting go of, or a relationship that needs to end. Let go and allow time for healing. Growth and new beauty lie ahead.
Finally, now is the time for “LISTENING”! Pay attention to not only what is being said but also what is not being spoken. Listen to your heart as well as your ears. Read between the lines and look for a deeper meaning or hidden messages.
