This week, Doreen is working with the Magical Unicorns deck. She points out that she created this deck specifically to be child-friendly… for children of all ages. Fun! I may have to get some. Anything with unicorns is a win with me. Plus, I could use a child-friendly deck so that ‘that little boy’ has a place to focus his curious paws 😉
Anyway… Doreen says that this will be a week of great growth and change. The timing is perfect with the equinox happening overnight tonight. Sounds like it may be a week of spring cleaning on many levels. Remember- opening, allowing, and working with the flow works better than resisting and struggling. Let go and ride the wave!
And for the children, inner children, those with children, those inspired by the unicorns, etc., tonight’s the night to test the Vernal Equinox egg balancing myth. Does it work for you?
Here we are again… the beginning of another month. I’ve been regrouping and reviewing today to move into March with more clarity. I am overjoyed to hear all that Susan Miller foresees for me (and all Sagittarians) this month.
So many wonderful possibilities packed into March. What’s in store for you?
The new moon is a time for nurturing those little seedlings in your heart- manifesting the life of your wildest dreams. Just as the moon grows from new moon into the full moon, you can align with the powerful energy of that process to manifest your goals.
Please enjoy the manifestation meditation with Dr. Wayne Dyer above. Riding the new moon wave!
Body as Temple – Shivratri poem
The rich will make temples for Shiva. What shall I a poor man do?
My legs are pillars.The body the shrine
The head a cupola of gold.
O Lord of the meeting rivers
Things standing shall fall
But the moving ever shall stay.
~Basavanna, revolution Vira Saiva poet who made teachings available to all, women, men of all castes and backgrounds
Join us tonight as all prayers, mantra, meditation, the smallest of offerings are amplified with the New Moon of Shivratri as over a billion beings around the world offer their own form of sadhana. Some will fast all day and night staying up in the home or temples, some in silence, some in kirtan or mantra japa, some offering elaborate puja, some offering a simple fruit or flower. We will be in a hour process of meditation and mantra and some simple movement meditation for all.
With this new moon it is a beautiful time to clear your inner and outer space, listen to mantra or kirtan, read sacred texts, Shiva Sutras, YogaSpandakarikas, Shiva Puranas, take an energy regeneration retreat, take a break from all media, unplug at sundown and use only candle light or ghee lamps. Enjoy a ritual yoga practice and meditation, a japa walk with mantra, love your family and friends and anyone you encounter as an emanation of the One.
Mahashivaratri is a time outside of time for realization and alignment with auspicious (one of the meanings of Siva) consciousness at the heart of all beings. Have a blessed night, day and new moon renewal.”
I set my intention on release, clearing and cleansing. I decided to practice yoga and then sage the house. But I realized I had given all of my bundles of sage to Josh’s friend- to burn with his papers before he left for Sweden. Huh.
All I had left was a leaf or two that came with crystals. Max and I enjoyed burning those. Then, we went for a walk.
We were walking down the trail at quite a clip. The gravel trail can rock him to sleep if I go fast enough. I establish my stride in the initial stretch- full of huge, barking dogs in the yards facing it.
Must race past them if he’s going to sleep.
I glanced down at my shoes as we were cruising along.
I saw a sage branch.
I could hardly believe it. I stopped and went back to pick it up and smell it.
Yep! It was sage- about 15 or 20 times what I had just burned. So, I put it in the stroller and smiled and said, Hari, Hari.
Speaking of astrology… everyone knows the astrological sign for the day they were born, right? I was born on December 7, so I’m a Sagittarius- or more accurately, Sagittarius is my sun sign.
When I was checking my horoscope this morning, it occurred to me that I hadn’t checked the horoscope for my Rising (Ascendant) sign for quite some time. In fact, I couldn’t even remember what it is anymore (gentle wrist slap).
Your natal chart shows the positions of the planets and astrological houses in the sky at the moment of your birth. It gives much more detail than simply reading the horoscope for your sun sign. In order to determine your natal chart, you need to know the exact time of your birth as well as the location.
I learned an interesting thing when I checked my natal chart this morning- Maxim and I are both Aries rising with Pisces as our moon sign! Fun!
My beautiful friend (and Reiki Angel), Lotus Love made me aware of this when I saw her recently. Currently, all of the planets in our solar system are in direct motion– from 12/26/11 until 1/23/12. It’s a rare occurence, and Lotus has made a video that spells it out beautifully… so I’ll let her do the talking.
Check out her video to learn more about the unique potential of this time. ♥
