Much has been expressed in New Age and esoteric teachings about letting go of things that no longer serve us: people, material things, a job, our beliefs, etc. But as a creative being, you will manifest, collect, and attract people, things, and ideas worth holding on to, keeping precious, safe, and secure. There is much to value and protect in life, and times will present themselves when you need to stand by who you are.

The story of Demeter and Persephone powerfully captures the unfolding of the seasons, welcoming in new light.
