Flowers are popping up, trees are blooming, and the unseasonably warm temperatures are giving everyone "Spring Fever". In TCM, Spring is the intermediary period between Winter (Yin) and Summer (Yang), during which Yin gradually transforms into Yang. Winter is associated with water and storage, it's a time of dormancy when seeds lie in wait for the energy of Spring, which represents wood and birth, when they can awake and emerge from the Earth as new life. It's the gradual ascension of Yang that gives the seeds their needed energy to break through into the world, and it will be the full culmination of the Summer Yang that will allow them to flourish. Like the seeds of the Earth, we too have spent the Winter months in hibernation, and now have re-awakened to the freshness and renewal of an early Spring.
Enjoy the beautiful weather everyone!!!
