"Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I rise."
"The Wheel of the Year is not just a matter of changing from one season to the next. Beneath the manifestation of seasonal change, there is also change within the subtle energies of the earth. These energy patterns affect us all (consciously and unconsciously), so by understanding the flow and direction of that energy, we can move with it, and in harmony with it, as true inhabitants of our planet Earth: belonging, part of, and flowing on all levels of our being."
