The light is coming back, the cold retreats, our hearts are lifted. My Ipod I Ching app has renewed my interest in the book. The hexagram 19. Lin / Approach is associated with this time of the year, after the winter solstice when the warmth and light of the sun returns.
Spring is approaching. Joy and forbearance bring high and low together. Success is certain. But we must work with determination and perseverance to make full use of the propitiousness of the time.
This is a propitious time of the year to make resolutions: the change of air and aspect helps us to break with the winter of the past and follow the light of our new goals.
