“I cannot be born On solid ground, Only where everything flows. To enter my dawn You must be unbound From how the fixed world goes. Leave behind your maps and losses Let dreams be all your law. Trust the wind When the ocean tosses Burn your boats on the farther shore. Make new songs And your floating island Will be rooted beneath the waves. Drink my sun And you dance on the high land Your heart, remembering, craves.” ~Robert Moss from Dreamways of the Iroquois: Honoring the Secret Wishes of the Soul

Happy Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse!
“Lunar eclipses add extra power to a Full Moon, bringing old emotional patterns and complexes to our awareness so that we can release them.
The Cosmos is giving us an opportunity to face the truth about ourselves. Fear will always be prowling at the door. Let’s use Aries’ bravery and daring to face our fears and bring them into the Light and make peace with them.
Will we be accepted? Will we be good enough? Will we be able to support ourselves? Face those questions with a big resounding YES! Why not? We’re in a new story, remember?
Yes, sometimes the world is a scary place, but why let that stop us from living the life we were born to live. We are all being called to go on our hero’s journey out into the world. Begin. Now is the time, and this is the place. And don’t forget to Dance!”
“Just like the lotus, we too have the ability to rise from the mud, bloom out of the darkness and radiate into the world.” ~Unknown
Happy Spring Equinox!
“This year’s Spring Equinox arrives right in between eclipses. So much energy is invoked during the wild and changing winds of eclipse season. Moments that feel fated, moments that are eery, enchanting and exquisitely potent for our healing process. We are asked to step up our game and step into our lives in ways that may scare us, excite us and rile us. No matter what we do, the equinox is here to awaken us. Awaken us to the change that is coming no matter if we are ready or resistant. Awaken us to energy that needs to bud, burst and bloom through us. Awaken to the fact that we are seasonal beings that need to run with the wild rhythms we live within.”

“To stay with that shakiness—to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feeling of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge—that is the path of true awakening. Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic—this is the spiritual path.” ~Pema Chodron

“I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or to be judged. I cannot blindly follow the crowd and accept their approach. I will not allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation. Fortunately for me, my self-knowledge has transcended that and I have come to understand that life is best to be lived and not to be conceptualized. I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.” ~Bruce Lee
Women are masters at handling it. So grateful to be a woman in this life amongst such astonishing company. You never cease to amaze and inspire me.
Happy New Moon and Solar Eclipse!
