This week marks a special Vedic holiday to welcome spring.
It’s Holi, the festival of color, and is a two-day event which includes fun and celebration.
It’s a popular holiday in India where people take to the streets with dancing, singing, and throwing of powder paint and colored water.
It coincides with the birthday of Lakshmi, the Goddess of abundance and prosperity.
Vedic holidays are synchronized with the position of the planets which give a precise idea of which energies are manifesting at any given moment.
And this holiday is celebrated as a time to welcome an abundance of all good things into your life.
It’s great if you can take advantage of the support for positive change that’s offered by these special days. Use them to magnify the helpful influences that support improvements in your life.
Holi and Lakshmi Jayanti – Growth & Abundance
Wednesday the 7th is Holika Dahana and holy ceremonies called pujas are performed to celebrate the victory of light over darkness, or good over evil.
Holi continues on Thursday, March 8th as a festival to celebrate new beginnings. It’s an especially good time to win the blessings of the Gods for good harvests and fertility of the land.
Thursday (the day of the full Moon) also happens to be Lakshmi Jayanti, the birthday celebration for Lakshmi, the beloved Goddess of wealth and abundance.
Auspicious Days for New Beginnings
These are very auspicious days for any type of activity including new beginnings.
That means anything you do or begin on these days will be especially blessed for success.
Activate Your Spring!
Speaking of spring and new beginnings …
Spring begins in the Northern Hemisphere on Tues. March 20, 2012, at 1:14 A.M. (EDT).
I will be welcoming it body and soul!
And would you like to have some new spring in your step?
NEW this year, I’m offering something to newsletter subscribers that I’m pretty jazzed about:
∞ Spring Activation ∞
It will act as a springboard for whatever intentions you hold during this fertile time of new beginnings.
We’ll do it as a group in a few weeks on a date TBD.
It will be sometime around the equinox and the lunar New Year (which occurs a few days after the equinox this year).
Details and registration information (it will be a teleconference) will be in the next newsletter. (Not on my newsletter list? You can sign up here.)
Many blessings to you during this sacred and powerful time, and best wishes for any new gifts you are opening to accept, or creations you are dreaming of and/or beginning to manifest!
