It’s that day again. The day when I receive an email that claims not to want to offend, but then tries to explain that “You’re wrong” and you should update your information. Oh how I “love” these.
Of course this isn’t the first time I’ve received a letter like this. So I learned how not to take them personally and see them for what they are. People generally mean well, and think they are sharing knowledge that someone else is lacking. But sometimes that can fall in the category of “Unsolicited Advice is Always Self-Serving“.
Other times, like this case, I believe the person meant well and there’s no other end game behind the note. But, what the sender failed to do before making an assumption about my information is….to conduct some research to discover why my information might be different. But let’s start at the beginning, here’s the note I’d like to discuss.
“Hi, every other website listed for elements and their corresponding compass points say: Air=east, Water=west, Fire=south, Earth=North which contradicts your website. You may want to revise your site. I hope you don’t get offended by this message, my intention is simply to promote accuracy.” Continue reading →
This week Venus moved into its retrograde state. It’s affects will influence our emotions until the end of June.
How Retrogrades Impact Our Lives Sometimes when we look out into space, other planets appear to be traveling backwards through the sky. Although planets are always moving forward, an optical illusion throughout the year causes the planets to appear to be traveling backwards. We call this motion a retrograde.
From an astrological perspective, these optical illusions impact the flow of energy here on Earth. Thus each planetary retrograde affects us as individuals and as a global society. How they affect us depends on the energy of the planet and it’s impact in the astrological charts. Continue reading →
It’s ok to rest for a time on your journey. It’s easy to become overwhelmed with information and needing time to absorb it all and take in what feels right for your path. Trust your instincts, stop for a moment and look around your current position. Consider all the things you have learned and gone through in the past 3 months. Then you’ll be able to determine which way is the best way for your travels.
Sometimes it is better to stop and take stock of your surroundings. Constantly moving without reflection can lead you down the wrong path in the maze and cause you to backtrack, wasting time and effort. Don’t zig-zag your way along to escape the hard things, or the issues that are hard to face. All you will end up doing, is making those things seem bigger than they are and sometimes they will grow bigger because you have refused to look at them. So take some time today, to stop, take in a deep breath and close your eyes. Align yourself with the Divine force in your life and review what you have learned, take in what rings true to you and consider how to apply that new knowledge and wisdom to your path.
