Spring Equinox is the time, according to Greek and Roman Myth that Persephone starts her journey back to Earth and her beloved Mother, Demeter. In the original myth Pluto kidnapped Persephone and took her to be the Queen of the Underworld.
Demeter (Mom) put her foot down and said unless my beloved daughter is returned I will not let anything grow. Her sadness over the loss of her daughter was so devastating that her tears were ice and her footfall left the ground frozen. Because of extenuating circumstances, basically, Persephone being responsible for her own actions, an agreement was made; Persephone would live with her Mom 6 months of the year and in the Underworld with Pluto 6 months of the year.
It is at the time of the Spring Equinox that Persephone begins her journey out of the Underworld. Over the cold darkness of the winter Persephone and Pluto have reunited. In the darkest time, Winter Solstice, Pluto and Persephone are finding the intimacy they crave by searching their inner worlds to know the unknown and bring the unconscious – conscious.
Daylight and darkness are equally represented at the Spring Equinox, which means Persephone is holding the balance between her two separate worlds.
It is the time to get clear on what from our inner musings to bring to the light and give form. Sort, determine what is useful, what isn’t, and let go of anything that isn’t bringing resonance (spring cleaning). This is a great time to consider a reading with an astrologer [http://www.theonlineastrologer.com/reading.aspx] to consider the essences that are active in your life at this time.
This particular Equinox sets in motion a wave of activity and transformation. If you are clear on what it is you want to transform a profound sense of commitment and yes, discipline (not an ugly word!) can set in motion patterns that will powerfully unfold in the months and years to come.
