Hey now, magical folks! Star Fairy here, dropping in to share some cosmic info and some down to earth magic.
If you’ve been wondering what’s up with the planets lately, the answer is “A lot!”
Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, Mars in Libra and Jupiter in Cancer are all arranged like 4 points of a square, ready for battle, or perhaps a competitive game. Uranus, with Mercury currently alongside, shakes things up, gives us new ideas, and pushes for the changes that bring more freedom. Pluto is doing the deep work of transforming the structures and traditions of our society… no easy task! Mars reminds us that in order to come up with peaceful solutions that really work, we each need to state clearly what we want and where we stand. Jupiter challenges us to open our hearts and be generous with our nurturing. This includes self-nurturing!
This Grand Square is in effect for the rest of the month, and we may feel it longer. My best advice is to lovingly stay true to yourself, even if you are experiencing big changes. Be willing to change. It’s OK to mourn what is passing away. It is powerful to set your intentions for how you want to feel in the future. Tell the story of who you want to become, and then trust in the process. Your heart knows the way!
~ we couldn’t see the lunar eclipse through the clouds, but I was able to tune into the energy. On a very early dog walk I recognized that I want to replace resentment, regret, and desire for revenge with the practical power and pleasure of presence. (alliteration helps me remember things!)
~ my husband, who had to get up in the wee hours to go to work. When he went into the kitchen he found a teeny tiny frog (a peeper!) had somehow gotten inside our house. He saved it from the cats and immediately took it outside to safety, even though he was naked. <3
~ seeing a barred owl in the woods. My dog and I were just below its tree. I saw it turn its head this way, then back to look at me, then another way, then back, then look at my dog, and silently glide away to a more distant perch. So beautiful!
~ baby cuddles! I'm taking care of a 3 month old and she is just so sweet!
~ watching some of the memorial ceremonies for the victims of the bombing at last year's Boston Marathon. I love how they talked and sang about resilience and strength, connection and community, and our desire for peace.
~ my son playing happily with his friends, online and in person
~ Spring songs! Between the birds that start at the first hint of light, and the peepers that really get going late afternoon and sing sometimes into the morning, the sound of joy is all around!
~ dark chocolate
~ the wonderful furry love of my big black dog, little black cat, and bigger black and white cat
<3 Please share what joy you are finding in your world! <3
