Which season is best for your new idea?

by | Oct 5, 2019 | Uncategorized | 4 comments


So you have had a new idea? An inspiration has arrived out of the blue for something exciting that you would like to manifest.


Which season is best to support this emergence?


Before answering this question, let me tell you what’s new for me.


First, I have changed the delivery platform for my Seasons Newsletter. It’s been taking me around four hours to produce, due to the technical issues of posting it on my blog as well as sending it out to subscribers. Then aha! I discovered a new system with an alluring name: Mailpoet.

Mailpoet is a friend of my website; they work together with beautiful compatibility. And it’s simple to use. So I’ve made the change.

Second, I’ve become increasingly aware of the polarity of the seasons on this planet. More and more northern hemisphere subscribers have been joining the Seasons Newsletter (welcome to you!). I’m also enjoying the presence of more northern hemisphere subscribers to my online courses. And so my awareness is extending.


Let’s return to the question

And so, when you have a new idea, is spring the season to advance it, or would autumn be equally suitable?

If you are currently in spring, this is an ideal season to carry any new inspiration through into action. Leafy shoots are pushing through the bark, sap is rising, young fish are swimming up the rivers, flowers are cavorting and the air is charged with fragrance. You will be riding the surging energies of the season.

Just as nature is juicy with growth, so will it be for you. It’s time to open up after the confines of winter, and to move from a focus on your inner life to the outward focus to the outward focus of action.



What about autumn?

Here’s the part that might surprise you. Autumn is also a very good season to welcome in a new idea.

However, the difference is that you won’t be in a rush to bring that idea out into the world. Autumn is a season when you are moving from the outward focus of summer to the inward focus of winter.

It’s a transition in which there are two ways to go:

1. If the idea has arrived in a fairly ripe form, a late harvest might be possible — a late fruition perhaps.

2. If the idea is very new and unformed, then this is the perfect season to cradle it inside, to nurture the new conception. This is the time to carry the tender newness into the dark womb of winter. Just as a seed sleeps in the ground through the dark season, your inspiration will curl up and quietly await the time to put down roots and unfurl into the light of early spring. You may think nothing is happening, but gestation will occur.

Whichever season you are in, I wish you well with cherishing and honouring your inspiration. This is your soul work. It matters.


‘Our creative dreams and yearnings come from a divine source.
As we move toward our dreams, we move toward our divinity.’

Seasons blessings,

    Hi Juliet – I much prefer Spring, but think Autumn would be the time to get going and get things into gear and planned out. So glad you’re getting things sorted. Your mailpoet does have a great name … and if it ties in – that makes sense. Good luck with all your plans – cheers Hilary

      Hi Hilary, yes, autumn is good for planning. Thank you for the good wishes. I’ve had a learning curve with the new system, but am pleased with it too.

    Spring is my favourite season, November being my favourite month (could it be because my birthday is in November? Perhaps, but I just love the green-ness of November). I’ve been feeling quite lonely lately – I run my own online business but never see people, and my wife is currently having to work out of town for a few months . . . At first I was upset . . . but then something reminded me that everything happens for a reason and perhaps the reason was to make me start things up, join groups, host events? So I decided to take my mission, which is to go back to the first draft of a novel manuscript I wrote in 2012, and with the help of a group of writers I am forming – The Napier Novelists – do a Twelve Week Intensive Workshop where we share our issues, help edit each other’s work, and write write write with any spare time we have to complete our projects. . .and as I was approaching one bookshop that I was placing my advertisement in (the beautiful Wardini’s in Napier), I saw on their window an advertisement for a book group starting at the shop tomorrow evening! Well, if that wasn’t a sign to join up, I don’t know what would be! So I went in and said I would be there tomorrow night. . . I know that it will be a wonderful group that will also inspire my written work as the theme of the book group is also a theme in my written work!
    So tonight I replenished my cup thank you Juliet, energy for me coming from having fun with groups of people meeting for a similar cause, and every day I’m going to stand on my back lawn and listen to all the sounds of the neighbourhood to remind myself that I am not alone at all, and that all is as it should be. Thank you!

      Delightful Penny, seeing your new idea taking off and being supported by serendipity! It’s definitely the season for creativity. I wish you well with the new venture, and thank you for sharing it.
