66. MONTHLY MEDICINE: March is Tend the Flame

March is a POWERFUL cycle. This is the month of newborn energy, the miraculous emergence of life, a time in which a whole new world can be borne within us. March holds within it a Mercury Retrograde, a New Moon in Pisces, a Full Moon in Libra ON the Spring Equinox, and, perhaps most significantly, the shift into a new zodiacal calendar. We complete our journey in Pisces, and transition into Aries season in the month of March, carried on the wings of the Equinox — the first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and of Fall in the Southern Hemisphere. Life is birthing anew as the spark of creation illuminates from within us.

March is a month for inward looking and profound emotional depths, and also delicious expansion. It is death and life, ending one cycle and beginning another. March is a month that invites us to Tend the Flame, to expand without exhaustion, to explore without burnout, to create without fear, to keep the flame lit within us, even as we travel deeply into the waters of our being. It is a powerful month of creation, joy, and new beginnings, and will ask us to clear everything that no longer serves, including anxiety, overwhelm, and old patterning.

“The spark of creation, is flickering within me
The spark of creation, is blazing in my blood
A bit of the fire that lit up the stars
And breathed life into the mud, the first inspiration
The spark of creation

I see a mountain and I want to climb it
I see a river and I want to leave shore
Where there was nothing let there be something
Something made by me
There's things waiting for me to invent them
There's worlds waiting for me to explore
I am an echo of the eternal cry of
Let there be.”

—“Spark of Creation” from Stephen Schwartz’s “Children of Eden”
