Spring has always been my favorite season. Growing up in Vermont we had long winters with lots of snow. When trees would start to bud and the spring flowers started to bloom, I was instantly more energetic and happier. I now live in San Diego where the shift is less dramatic, yet I still feel the seasonal change and now instead of apple blossoms I smell orange blossoms and see the budding of the jacaranda trees. Spring renews the Spirit.

In the Five Elements this is the season of the Wood Element and it is about "Doing". Wood people like to move and stay active so you may feel more energetic after winter (the Water element season). You may be planning gardens, starting new projects or even find yourself wanting to add more movement into your day. Whatever your plans, please also stop and enjoy hearing the bees and birds and rejuvenate in the beauty of nature.
