hi beautiful human,
how are you? how’s your heart?
on my end, aries season is working wonders on what feels like my entire essence. after a 6-month hibernation i’m emerging-stretching my arms out, shaking off my slumber, and slowly exiting my den in search of (soul)food.
below is a reflection I recently shared on instagram about the power of seasons. i hope it resonates with you!
spring has officially become my favorite season. it feels like this spring in particular is hitting different, and it’s because for the first time i feel like i’m truly in tandem with it.
just like the buds that are taking form all around me from trees that appeared to be barren, something is coming alive within me. my hibernation period is coming to conclusion and the muses that ignite my creativity are singing in my ears again.
throughout much of the fall and winter i was trying to force myself to be, do, act, build-anything but rest. luckily, my body didn’t allow it, but my mind kept resisting until i realized i had nothing to give. i only had the capacity to shed, evaluate, and then shed some more (cc saturn’s return).
damn does it feels good to be in bloom, to be growing up and becoming seasoned with hard earned wisdom. but, doesn’t this only come through honoring seasons? some are for hard lessons, some are for creating, some are for unapologetic hedonism, some are for isolated creation, and some are just for existing.
all i know for sure is that whatever the season, it’s here for a reason.
Cat, a gal tryin’ her best
P.S. I just realized that this email didn’t go out as it was scheduled to last Monday, or this morning! i’ll get to work on the tech side, but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy!
