Seasonal Interludes

Seasonal living is about living in harmony with the flow of nature and allowing the natural rhythms and cycles to move through us throughout the year. Our ancestors used to live this way where they would prepare for each season with their shelter, food and ceremony. When we’re not connected to the seasons we can sometimes feel lost, depleted of energy or ungrounded. I’m starting to see a shift with people becoming aware and interested in seasonal living. 

Each season holds a different energy that can be broken down into weeks, days and even hours. The phases of the moon are connected to the seasons throughout the month. The waxes and wanes of the seasons exist for a reason, they serve as a bridge to the sun and the moon that reflects back to the earth. About every four weeks, the moon completes a full cycle, transforming from the new moon to a full moon and back again. Each phase of the moon correlates to a season.

The moon cycles

WINTER - NEW MOON - This is the darkest phase of the moon’s cycle representing new beginnings. It is a time to go within to rest and reflect bringing the stillness of winter, aging and the night time.
SPRING - WAXING MOON - Spring comes alive and we feel reborn as we make plans and initiate new projects. This is when we are most connected to the morning and childhood dreams filled with hope and desire
SUMMER - FULL MOON - This phase represents abundance and fertility. It’s when our energy is at its highest and is connected to the summer season, daylight and youthfulness.
FALL - WANNING MOON - This final phase is to surrender, release and let go. The moon fades into darkness representing the fall harvest, maturity and the early evening.

Do you live in harmony with the Seasons?

Haiku poetry is grounded in the observance of the passing of the seasons and has a strong connection with nature that I will share with you throughout the month.
