As I was writing the Polarity reading for the masculine and feminine energy for the Spring Equinox, it occurred to me that repeatedly the spring equinox was approximately the time when the divine masculine began its descent into the underworld. Easter falls on the first Sunday following the ecclesiastical full moon after the spring equinox signaling Jesus’s resurrection. In Inanna’s Descent into the Underworld, it is upon her return that Dumuzi is sent in place so that she may be free. Persephone returns from the Underworld at the Spring Equinox leaving her husband Hades to rule the underworld alone until she returns. Isis travels far and wide to rebirth Osirus after he descends to rule the underworld as is his destiny. In each of these cases the feminine returns to the living world while the masculine either trades places with her, exists in an in between space, or remains in the underworld as it’s sole ruler in the feminine’s absence.
As we begin Spring 2018, I plan to observe the seasons for signs of the masculine in the underworld as well as his role here on this plane. It is an entirely new way of viewing this season. As I continue to grow in my spiritual practice, I know that more and more of the world of the dark God and Goddess will be revealed to me. As the divine feminine integrates her darker aspects during the fall and winter, so shall the divine masculine in the spring and summer.
