In Greek mythology, spring is said to have been created by Demeter, the goddess of fertility, as gratitude for being reunited with her daughter Persephone. Persephone had been abducted by Hades, the god of the underworld, an act that caused Demeter great strife to the point of threatening the earth with famine. When she was finally reunited with Persephone, she was so exuberant that she blessed the land with produce and taught humans the secret behind planting.

Spring is the time of new beginnings, characterized by blooming flowers, the awakening of animals from hibernation to nest and reproduce, the migration of birds towards warmer climates, and is the planting season.
Because of these reasons, the season of spring overflows with symbolism. Symbolic themes stemming from spring include:
In shamanism, the connection with the natural cycles is very important. Shamans in all traditions know that everything contains power and that the pivotal moments in nature are moments of power. In all cultures, these moments in time are exploited through rituals: conscious moments of connection, growth, and celebration.
Spring brings the power of a new beginning: the juices start flowing again and nature starts a new circle of unfolding and opening to the heavenly light.
The transition from winter to spring offers us the opportunity to consciously renew ourselves through the cooperation of strong intention, surrender, and connection. Everyone can use this power. It is there for all of us. You do this by consciously connecting with the power in nature. With the trees, the wind, the rain, the first bumblebees that fly again.
In the wheel of life or medicine wheel, spring corresponds to the East. The place where the new is born. The inspiration that came into the dream world and the dimensions of the soul can now be created more easily. You can use this spring power by welcoming it into your life in a simple spring ritual – a moment of power.
