What crazy, magical times we are all sharing! Last month brought such powerful shifts and shakeups, before allowing us to slow down and ground it all. What a time of major transitions! I have felt such swings in energy... from being inspired to step forward with new intentions, to the confusion of how that is actually implemented, to the fear that also comes with letting go of the things in the way. I felt as if I had one foot in the next phase of my life and one foot was reluctant to leave where I've come from... quite a murky place to be. As I'm trying to accept and become friends with the concept of transition and the sluggish rate it often moves, I'm awakening to what a gift it can be to hold the space of both places. I'm finding the peace in honoring my journey to this new place I now stand, and the joy and excitement of surrendering into what is now before me, without knowing and understanding what it will evolve in to. Sometimes the only clarity with transition is the clarity of knowing we are in it! Perhaps these magical baby steps are moving us to the hidden path of the deeper expression our souls desire. Although the rest of this month will still allow us a canvas for healing and processing and more slowing down and reflection (as Mercury goes retrograde), we can receive the gift of the Gemini energy to explore and shape shift with our new intentions. We can be the magician of what we are creating; play with it and let go of the rigidity of trying to always make it "make sense!" I invite you to converse, share, explore, and learn new ways to express yourself. Let the magic of the mystery unfold!
I'm so blessed to know each of you and to share these times together. Here are opportunities to share more space of support with each other:

*Love offerings are appreciated but never expected
We will celebrate the new moon in Taurus by gathering and setting intentions. I will lead a discussion of the astrology of the times and we will share our experiences with the energies. Following our intention setting time, I will offer a class on the Planets. Each planet has a psycho-spiritual function. We will learn about each one and then apply this to the archetypes of the zodiac. Bring a copy of your chart to see how the planets are revealed in your chart.

Change leads to disappointment if it is not sustained. Transformation is sustained change, and it is achieved through practice.
Love and light,
