Venus enters Cancer

Venus_CancerVenus enters into Cancer on June 17th until July 12th, and it’s going to feel like it’s all about securing what is valuable and eliminating what isn’t! Saturn is also making it’s second square to Neptune this day; further bringing that feeling of needing structure and security to be long lasting, but wanting to meet starry-eyed expectations and actually being able to deliver on them might bring a hinderance. If you’ve felt you were pouring water into a bucket with holes, you’ll be able to see how that way of doing things isn’t serving any purpose or bringing the changes needed and how to better dive into your pool of resources.

While Venus thrived on the energy of others while in Gemini, now in Cancer she’s wants to build some self-reliance to become Queen of the castle! The Sun however, is still holding onto the Gemini energy for a couple more days until it enters Cancer on the 20th. Memories may come rushing in at this time and the emotional range will be vastly DEEP; churning like the tides from love/hate, pleasure/pain, logic/emotion, etc.. Subconsciously and instinctively reacting to situations leads to the trust in your ability to make decisions and how you’re needing to deal with others. The persistent and tenacious energy can lend to wholehearted nurturing, but if not safeguarded can lead to overpowering demands that feel like water eroding rock.

Venus also has phases, like the Moon and she recently reached her Full cycle on June 6th at 16º Gemini 36’. So while she may have been further from the Earth, she was closer to the Sun and receiving the light to shine on what is truly important to the beauty of life. The Sabian Symbol at this time is; 17º Gemini: The head of a robust youth changes into that of a mature thinker.

This natural progression from charming Mercurial participation in outer superficial associations gives way to an intense realization of deeper encouragement of self nurturing. Growth will come in crabwise waves, bringing with it ways to cultivate the inborn wisdom into seasoned, experienced realities for one and all.

-June 27th-
Venus trine Neptune: Fantasies and daydreams can easily lead to indulging in comfort. Be careful putting too much significance in things of little substance. Impermanence is heightened and activities feel done more with compassion, but may lead to little results.

-June 30th-
Venus opposition Pluto: Intense emotions come through from concealed conflicts. Time to get the crab out of the shell and deal with the real issues under the surface before they get more out of hand. Consequences will be long lasting whether dealt with now or later.

-July 1st-
Venus sextile Jupiter: Life feels blissful and abundant. Hope and faith bring about positive attitudes of manifesting the next steps easily. Social events feel more welcoming and time spent with others leads to more understanding and connectedness.

-July 6th-
Venus trine Mars: Balancing wants and needs seems like a piece of cake! Your passions lead the way as you look to help and be of assistance. Action comes about fluidly in making things more appealing in tasks for yourself and others.

-July 7th-
Venus square Uranus: Patience and flexibility in dealing with others is tested. Look for new experiences and ways of doing things, but be careful not to lose sight or under appreciate what you already have as emotions are unstable and arguments are easy to come by today!

-July 12th-
Venus enters Leo

Neptune Retrograde

excalibur-neptuneThe yearly cycle of Neptune turning retrograde is upon us early next week on the 13th and this one could really stir up some indecisiveness regarding boundaries! But let’s take a quick jaunt back to when Neptune entered Pisces in April 2011 and we were given an optimistic glimpse of what was to come; but maybe what was forgotten at that time was just how deep Pisces in the mighty Ruler of the Sea can be! And then when Neptune retrograded back into Aquarius in November that year, we were being reminded that we were going to need to set aside differences to unite and work together.

Last year on November 26th, the first of three squares of Saturn in Sagittarius to Neptune began; “A Girl Blowing a Bugle” and while the U.N. Climate Talks at the time may have been a wake-up call to protect Mother Nature and what is vital for everyone, there is a woman that’s been blowing quite the bugle right now! Hillary Clinton announced her presidential campaign a few months earlier in April 2015 as Mars made a sextile to Neptune, bringing some decisive action to dream big as the first female President! And then what else had happened in November? Oh, only the Democratic debates! See how things are lining up here?!

So while Neptune usually spends around half the year moving forward, there’s still a good chunk retrograding, leaving aspirations to be reviewed with new revelations and redemption continually happening. Sacrifices being made will need to be done without egotistical agendas, otherwise the burden becomes to great to bare with an overwhelming breakdown. But a fine balance between the reality vs. the illusions of situations could lead to less reliance on there being hope for change and falling back into destructive habits! Stay with the trust in your intuition and there’ll be an evolution in where the potential is being seen, sought out, and then implemented when it’s been reliable through and through.

Now with Neptune turning retrograde at 13° Pisces, and the second square occurring with Saturn a few days later on the 17th; the Sabian Symbol “A Sword in a Museum” expresses the remnants that remain from battle. While the sword can be used in creating destruction or as defense, the consequences encountered were different for every side involved. We can also be reminded that “The pen is mightier than the sword.” at this time when we’re hoping that truth will prevail through uncertainties with swift justice. It’s going to be important not to get too caught up in any collective drama or spontaneity to forcibly change the perspectives that have been in place. Though it may feel like you’re trying to please everyone in not creating waves by pulling Excalibur from the stone, your willpower is just as strong as anyone else! Share the knowledge and understanding with others and draw upon the strength from the past in the times of turmoil by remembering that learning from the struggle and continuing to apply those lessons was just as important as going through it!

While Neptune can take it’s time to bring the understanding through the undercurrents to the surface, we’re able plan for what’s motivating us while continually being inspired. Don’t forget, it sometimes important to come up for air though! So if you have any questions regarding how Neptune could be affecting you or how you can slay your dragons, you can reach me at facebook or email!

Many Blessings!!

Mercury in Gemini

mercury-satelliteMercury is one happy camper after last month’s retrograde and now while in it’s ruling sign, clear, perceptive thinking and communication is happening more easily. You’ll have to utilize this energy quickly since it only lasts from the 12th until June 29th! With things coming along more rationally, try not to lose sight of the little things that are sentimental and meaningful to the bigger picture. Curiosity is intensified and will be HIGHLY stimulating during this time; thoughts, speech, images; don’t avoid what’s different to keep yourself at a distance to observe rather than participate. Step out of the safety zone that Mercury in Taurus had you in and give yourself some more breathing room to experiment with what can work for you!

You’ll still need to make some tough decisions on where to put your time and efforts or it might just all get scattered to the wind without any real substance. Originality is key to making sure that your message is heard, but if you come across inauthentic then all meaning gets lost along with the trust! Manipulation will be blindingly obvious, so there won’t be any faking it til you make it for anyone! Staying quiet in order to keep the peace only results in confrontation at a later time. Being open and radically honest in your communication can bring about more change and understanding than you thought was possible. Be yourself and you’ll have the right people having your back in times of need.

While the first week of Mercury moving into Gemini is rather quiet transit wise, things will start to pick up on the 20th when it starts reminding that there’s still real work to be done and not just a bunch of wishful thinking! Harness the energy and do it, to it!

-June 20th-
Mercury square Neptune: Confusion of purpose could lead to neglecting responsibilities. Idealization of outcomes might lead to being lost in fantasy. Come back to Earth! Complete  honesty needed at this time. No sneaky actions go unnoticed!

Mercury opposition Saturn: Serious or critical thoughts bring about a lack of compassion. Longing for a place in the world gives focus to isolation or loneliness. Mentally taxed by fleeting thoughts of the past. Interruptions bring frustration in believing in outcome.

-June 22nd-
Mercury square Jupiter: Finding it hard to say no results in some poor judgment. Big plans arising could result with sloppy execution. Arrogance brings no relief and expectations need to be flexible. Easier to be lazy today and remember to relax and enjoy the smaller victories!

-June 26th-
Mercury sextile Uranus: Technology can be a benefit or bane. Excitement to break routine and try new things. New experiences lead to discoveries of reworking habits to tackle old issues in new ways. Ingenuity combines with intuition.

-June 29th-
Mercury enters Cancer: Coming soon! 😉

Hopefully this zippy transit gives you the energy needed to bring about clarity and keep things inspirationally motivating! If you’re curious as to how you’ll be more personally affected by what’s happening in the skies, feel free to send me a message at Facebook or email and we can take a look at how to best work the energy to your needs!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

New Moon in Gemini

New Moon’s are always a time of new beginnings and the cycle of the energy that builds from one New Moon to the next helps to paint a picture of what is possible to manifest and I think this gorgeous watercolor looked rather fitting for the energy of the upcoming Gemini New Moon on June 4th!

While this Gemini/Sagittarius axis culminates at the Sagittarius Full Moon at the Summer Solstice, right now is at a focal “center point” of the Gemini energy. This Sabian Symbol deals with so much persistence and being able to benefit from what’s right in front of us.

“Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.” ~Aristotle

So while this is a lunar “start”, it is also a time when things are at a solar middle ground for what you have available to utilize. But this New Moon also faces a challenging t-square configurations between Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune!

Expect for knowledge to gained and lessons to be learned through relating to others this New Moon rather than experiencing it from past repetitive practices, though repetition will still make an impact. Practice makes perfect! Someone will need to lead and someone will follow, but a greater perspective will be gained through sharing and staying persistent in bringing about new ways of doing things. Be clever in your approach to difficulty and see the humor when things may go amiss or when toes get stepped on, but there’s also some lessons to be learned in the distraction and it’ll bring you closer to being on the same page with others. You might find yourself relying on your intuition to read between the lines. This is a potent time of letting go of ego and working together to solidify common goals for what lies ahead in the future! Release the fears and dance into the exhilaration that life will bring!

 

Aries – The Moon in your 3rd house, Gemini’s ruling house, brings you a boost of confidence that you can make things different if you put in the effort. But your ruler Mars is retrograde in your 8th house of regeneration and has you a little hesitant that it’s going to be worth it. You’ll have to start somewhere though if you’re going to get anywhere. Let go of insecurities and blaze yourself a trail of happiness!

THEME SONG: Jurassic 5 – Jurass Finish First

Taurus – As the New Moon glides through your 2nd house, your thoughts of self-worth lead you wondering and worrying about what you can accomplish and bring about. Keep it simple and focus on the skills that have built your foundation! There’s no shame in asking for help if you need it or aren’t understanding the next steps you’re needing to take. You only have to prove to yourself what you’re capable of, no one else.

THEME SONG: Craig David – Rise & Fall

Gemini – It’s your Moon! And if you’re experiencing rapid changes of thoughts and emotions; shake it off and start again. While you’re not at a loss of words, not everyone shares your viewpoint and it could make you a little restless if you feel you’re needing to prove a point. Stay true to yourself even if it’s feeling as though you’re not fitting others mold. It’s not your fault if they can’t keep up with your sharp wit!

THEME SONG: Taylor Swift – Shake it Off

Cancer – Being ruled by the Moon, this one gracing your 12th house of unconsciousness has you running on auto-pilot! That’s not to say things can’t be exceptional, but your awareness comes from the tidal give and take and ingenuity will need to come about from your own hard work. Even if others have you wanting to retreat into your shell, you’re still able to make time to transcend any negativity to feel a connection with all.

THEME SONG: Muse – Sunburn

Leo – This Moon is stirring things up in your 11th house of hopes and dreams leading you to wonder if you’re stuck in a mode of wishful thinking or actually believing you’re creating your reality. Don’t rush through things even if you think you have it all figured out as things are going to be very mercurial and rather capricious at times! Acknowledge the journey you’re on and those around that make it the most enjoyable!

THEME SONG: First Aid Kit – The Lion’s Roar

Virgo – If you’re questioning who you’re meant to be, with the Moon in your 10th house of reputation, you might find yourself feeling stuck in meeting the expectations of others. Intimidation usually doesn’t leave you distressed, but it could be as though you’re feeling in the wrong for a change. Try not to get stuck in senseless tunnel vision and look to someone else that can help guide you from your understanding and widen your viewpoint.

THEME SONG: Cake – The Distance

Libra – You’re really about to live your intentions with the Moon in your 9th house of ideals! Your ruling planet Venus is also square to Jupiter giving you deeper insight to see things through with the motivation that started when the Sun moved into Gemini. Now that the Moon is lending it’s emotional strength, you’ll have the comfort in knowing your choices are best for you and there’s no guilt in living life the happiest you know is possible! Let your positive inspiration spread!

THEME SONG: Lady Gaga – Born This Way

Scorpio – The change you’ve been wanting is more easily able to come about with the Moon in your 8th house of transformation. But don’t be resistant if it seems to be coming about in a way you weren’t envisioning. You can’t have a fire without something to burn! Let go a little of control and delve into new streams of consciousness and the more you embrace what seems unusual, the more you will see a metamorphosis happen within and outside yourself!

THEME SONG: Evanescence – Bring Me To Life

Sagittarius – You might be questioning what others bring to your life and what you give in return with the Moon in your 7th house of relationships. Especially with both the Sun and Moon also making a square to your ruler Jupiter in your 10th house of authority! But don’t be too upset if you feel things aren’t measuring up to others connections. Everyone needs to make their own decisions in the options they’re given.

THEME SONG: Tegan and Sara Ft. The Lonely Island – Everything Is Awesome

Capricorn – This Gemini New Moon in your 6th house of habits opposing your ruler Saturn in your 12th house of undoing has everything getting a shakedown, shaken up, and generally just stirred into chaos! But before you throw your hands up in despair, give yourself the chance to regain your footing and actually breathe. You’ll be able to breathe some new life into your daily routines if you remember the reason why you started doing them in the first place!

THEME SONG: Carrie Underwood – Something in the Water

Aquarius – You’ll find it easier to identify with others with the Moon in your 5th house of self-expression. Positivity is coloring things like a kaleidoscope on multiple levels and you’ll need to be aware that others might not be seeing or understanding things in the same way that you’re trying to express. While you might not take it personally, you might not be taken all that seriously either. This still won’t distract you from showing others the spice of life!

THEME SONG: Blue Swede – Hooked On A Feeling

Pisces – Things may seem unsettled with the Moon in your 4th house of tradition and you want to feel as though you have more support and security. Just watch that you don’t become too attached to the idea of what could be rather than what is. Building stronger foundations with others could seem daunting, but it’s still important to continue nurturing yourself and others if you’re going to see things grow into the genuine connection you’re looking for.

THEME SONG: Rachel Platten – Fight Song

 

I hope everyone enjoys the tunes and that the New Moon cycle treats you fantastic and helps open up experiences that will help break down barriers to more understanding and realization of what is capable through combined talents! If you have any questions regarding how the planets are affecting you personally, you can reach me at facebook or email!

Many Blessings!!

June Overview – Every Rose Has It’s Thorn

SONY DSC

Source: Pinterest

Can you say WHAT HAPPENED?!? I know I can! And honestly after reading through the last two posts, I can see where things should’ve been a little clearer… 2015 was indeed a BEAUTIFUL year now looking back, but it definitely wasn’t the easiest. It was more akin to being like that glorious quote from Anne Brontë. But yeah Every Rose Has It’s Thorn and talk about gaining some scars from the thorns! Yeesh! But here we are almost part way through 2016 and this year’s word is Solace. While there has been plenty of comfort, there’s really more work needing to be done and with today being my Lunar Return along with Retrograde Mars entering back into Scorpio, my natal 4th house, well.. it’s time to regenerate some roots!

June starts off with clearing any remnants of the Mercury retrograde that just occurred and a liveliness leads a feeling as though anything can be accomplished with the Sun and Venus in Gemini! Just don’t spread yourself thin between too many choices! Mars in Scorpio provides the motivation to work on acquiring and updating your skills though you’ll need to be careful not to be over obsessive about your goals. Mercury briefly joins the Sun and Venus in Gemini on the 12th as it changes signs bringing with it more fuel to unrestrained optimism, while Neptune finally turns direct the following day! But expect some challenges on the 17th as Venus moves into committed Cancer while Saturn squares off with Neptune making it difficult to see how reality and fantasy can co-exist and manifest into something stable and secure. The energy of the Sun’s movement into Cancer on the 20th culminates along with the Solstice Full Moon in the last degree Sagittarius. This Full Moon ends what was established with the Flower Full Moon (seeing them roses and thorns some more now?) from May 21st that was the first degree of Sagittarius and brought about questions of beliefs and ideals. Take the time this month to see things through so that the life you *think* can happen, actually DOES spark into manifested destiny!

A

radiantrw_knightpentsrAries – Knight of Pentacles (R) – With the Sun in your 3rd house of ideas you may find it difficult to remain composed but you’ll really need to focus to stay in control. Even if things seem desperate, try to find some hope in knowing things don’t need completely switched up to keep moving forward. Stay to your own group before trying to expand into another social circle with how you think things should be done or you could be met with harsh resistance. You can only expect to go as far as you’re willing to allow others help you, but trust and consistency with friendships also depend on how much you’re willing to put into it too!

A

Ace of SwordsTaurus – Ace of Swords – The truth shall set you free, but first it’ll piss you off could be your mantra this month with the Sun in your 2nd house of self-worth, and you’ll need to be aware of any changing opinions. It may feel as though you have to fight to prove your point, but you’ll have a better reception with grace and ease once Mercury leaves your sign. While you like to keep things as stable and routine as possible, it will be time to move past any insecurities and take the lead in brushing up on any skills you’ve been neglecting. Take this renewed courage and cut out any BS that’s holding you back!

A

Seven of PentaclesGemini – Seven of Pentacles (R) – A little patience is needed while working towards goals, so don’t give up before reaching the finish line and do the best that you can while the Sun is in your sign! If you’re questioning what the point in your efforts are, you might need to step back and decide if this is the right path at all! It’s up to you to decide how much energy to put in with what you want to receive and achieve and you don’t need to settle for what’s convenient. If your heart isn’t into it than the fruits will lose it’s sweetness and will taste sour for the labor!

A

The World reversedCancer – The World (R) – Don’t worry if you can’t see the trees through the forest just yet! By the time the Sun moves into your sign on the 20th things will make a lot more sense, but it may feel like a struggle to keep up with responsibilities and get things done. Stay flexible while the Sun finishes out it’s time in your 12th house of subconscious and you’ll be able to see more clearly what is working and what won’t in the transformations that are taking place. Make sure that you don’t become complacent in feeling like your efforts aren’t being valuable or appreciated and remember that every little piece of a puzzle is important.

A

Knight of Swords reversedLeo – Knight of Swords (R) – You can’t get along with or make everyone happy 100% of the time! Even if you’re feeling justified you’ll need to be careful with the Sun in your 11th house of friendship that you don’t give into other’s negativity or it may feel like you’re arguing with a wall. But if you’re compromising your ideals, you’ll need to step back to have a better understanding and perspective of what you’re dealing with if it feels uncomfortable to you. Don’t try so hard for people to like you or you’ll have more explaining to do when your true feelings come to light! Stand proud for what you believe in!

A

Queen of Wands reversedVirgo – Queen of Wands (R) – Goals might seem outright exhausting with the Sun in 10th house of responsibilities and you might be needing more attention and less concerned in taking control with situations. This could lead to resentment if others are seeing you as selfish but you’re genuinely needing their assistance. Take a deep breath, before trying to have any meaningful discussions! It might be important to re-evaluate expectations or how you see the “rules” in order to get your wants and needs met and if communication continues feeling strained, take the time to listen rather than proving your point and there could be more common ground than appears to be there.

A

King of SwordsLibra – King of Swords – The Sun in your 9th house of truth and philosophy brings about new, clear ideas with rational judgement making decisions this month easy to manage. Others see your confidence and may seek out your assistance in helping them to see the bigger picture. But it could weigh heavily on you if you allow them to become too dependent and while you have a reasonable understanding of situations, becoming too involved could lead to taking accountability for their decisions. Just make sure that you keep a balance in your own experiences with being open to new adventures that will continue guiding you with your purpose!

A

Nine of WandsScorpio – Nine of Wands – With the Sun in your 8th house of transformation right now you’re ready to jump over the Moon, but it’ll be better to take action once the Sun moves into Cancer on the 20th when you’ll feel less scattered and a better understanding of where the path is leading. If you’re frustrated from questioning where the path has come from, remember that you’ve laid the blueprints for what’s being manifested! Set aside any vulnerabilities and someone will be able to boost your confidence in knowing you’ve thought things through enough. Just because you can’t see the forest for the trees doesn’t mean to burn it all down!

A

Eight of WandsSagittarius – Eight of Wands – Working together with others to reach your goals will be key with the Sun in your 7th house of partnerships, but everyone has their strengths and weaknesses and you’ll need to be aware of where they are. New changes are able to happen easily if necessary, but continue staying focused on the tasks at hand or you may end up with more disappointment than excitement with what’s going on. If you’re trying to prove to others how much you can take on, aggravation more than accomplishment might come about but the distractions will easily fade away if you remember to ask for help when needed. No man is an island!

A

Death reversedCapricorn – Death (R) – The old ways of doing things is coming to an end and as much as you might want to catch a break this month; with the Sun in your 6th house of routines and daily life, you might be a little reluctant to change. If you find yourself insecure in making decisions, you could have better luck going with the path of resistance to see what new opportunities can shake you from your rut. Try not to have a pessimistic attitude if things seem as though they’re trudging along without you. The emotional and physical frustration and stagnation shall pass and you’ll find a more rewarding way of appreciating the journey you’re on!

A

Ace of CupsAquarius – Ace of Cups – Your cup is overflowing with giving as the Sun breezes through your 5th house of inspiration. The support and caring you receive further brings you an emotional boost of confidence and you’ll be moving through this month with fun and ease. Creative projects may help take you into new social circles that will further encourage the connections you have with others and renews the ingenuity that you may have felt has been lacking lately. Make sure that you do take time to yourself to reflect on how far that you’ve come and accomplished and you’ll see the deeper intentions from your dreams continuing to be realized!

A

The Tower reversedPisces – The Tower (R) – Life may seem to be rather surprising this month and some inner turmoil causes friction in your 4th house of stability. You’ll need to be more sincere in communicating the uncertainty of your own thoughts and others actions. Seeing what will be beneficial and what isn’t currently working will lead you to more of where, what, and who you’re needing to put your effort into for the long term. But if you’re needing to defend past decisions, it could be the time to re-evaluate if those choices are now being beneficial or if you’re needing to let go of what’s keeping you from building something stronger and more secure for yourself.

A

So now, please stop back on by for a spell or six! There will be some things switching up and while I do have some things planned, if there’s anything I’ve been getting from the Universe lately is; “Planned road trips are nice, but it’s better to enjoy the ride.” I hope y’all have an awesome extended weekend!

Blessings!

99 Days Marked Off the Calendar on the Wall.. 99 Days Marked Off..

100-days-pensacola-summer-2011

Where did the time go?!

Can you believe we’re 100 days into 2015?!? I know.. it feels like just yesterday we were celebrating New Years, and some of my friends up north are even sharing some pictures of SNOW today!! OMG, no thanks! But actually for some of you reading this, it might still be the 99th day (April 9th). Either way, we’re coming up close to 1/3rd of the year being done! Which, if you look at the math, it ends up being pretty much on May Day! What a good day to break out the mead for a celebration if you’ve been able to manage some good things for yourself, eh?!

Now, if you’ve been feeling a little bit more of a struggle throughout the months and need a starting point for the next 100 days coming up… You’re in luck! If you plan to start from April 10th, you’re looking at July 19th for your end date. But if you’re still in the planning stages and not quite ready to heave ho with things and want to start working on your goals from May 1st; August 9th will be the finish line! The main thing is to remember, that if you’ve needed the inspiration or motivation to move ahead, YOU CAN DO IT!!!

 

That video always reminds me of the power someone has to change their life when they put their heart, mind, and soul to it! No matter how many times I see it being shared, it truly is exemplary of how determination and drive can see you through!

If you’d like to have some others join in on your 100 Day Challenge, you might want to try Give it 100! Or even just check out some of the uplifting videos being posting! 100 Happy Days is also a cute photo challenge and after posting with the hashtag #100HappyDays, you can receive a little set of square prints! Those are just two of the many challenges that are available and a little Google searching can bring just about any challenge imaginable! You just have to ask yourself where you see yourself going and what you want to accomplish within the next 100 days and take the next steps needed on your path. I like this quote from the late, great Terry Pratchett, who had passed away last month.

 spiral-pratchett-quote

I do have to say that sometimes looking for the next step can lead me to being a little too Type A, so I try to remember..

However, I have decided to join in on a 30 day photo challenge on May 1st!! I just haven’t figured out which one to go with yet, so if anyone has any suggestions on any good ones to check out or if you’ve preferred one over another, please feel free to send them my way! But I’ll make sure to update ahead of time if anyone wants to join in too once I figure it out!

I hope everyone enjoys this upcoming weekend and you’ll reflect on the last 100 days that began your 2015 and will think about the next ones that will be soon on their way. I can’t wait to see what continues to manifest for everyone this BEAUTIFUL year!

Many Blessings!

RISE and REJOICE – Big REAL Love!

Mary-J-Blige2If I ever had to pick a song that had helped me through my first real heartbreak, it would be Mary J. Blige’s ‘Real Love’.
Oh 1992… thanks for the mono.

But I’ve had a great deal of love for “Mary” ever since; and she’s really given us much more than her amazingly great music but also some fabulous perceptions, such as the one above and..

“I believe there should be no more drama, but it’s everywhere you go. It’s just about how you get out. You’ve gotta bob and weave because it’s everywhere. How do I keep the drama low? It’s about using your head.”

or…

“Really, every woman is an example to me, because as women we go through so much pain. We have to live this perfect life when we are messed up inside. We all go through trials and tribulations.”

Oh Mary! If you only knew how true this hit earlier today! You see, like most people I try to keep business and personal a little separate. Even though I work at home. Yeah, this is a little easier said than done sometimes. But I stepped back from the business side of things, and let’s just say; I did what I needed to do there and now I have business to attend to! So I had a little time this morning while the kids were off playing with their newly acquired Lego’s and while I was having my coffee, I came across this FABULOUS article..

How to Market Your Business When You’d Rather Be Listening More Than Talking

Oh really? You don’t say? Either way.. I’ve just been observing again for a bit. Obviously!

But this happened right AFTER reading; Mary J Blige:”I’m Not Worried, Trying to Keep It Real – I am Real” because I’d found out there is going to be a documentary released for Mary’s new work The London Sessions. YAY!

I then had a family member make a pretty brash assumption..

I cleared that up right quick. But it made you realize how I had been bobbing and weaving with things too… Until I had to put down the real love. It might have been a little “tough” in a sense. But it was REAL. So thank you, hallelujah and blessed be, hear ya REAL loud and clear with the energy work Universe!

This day really is one of celebration! But there is a balance in which we realize that which we can’t take for granted, what we need to prepare for, and what we do really have to be grateful for in our forgiveness in ourselves and one another! Everyone’s experiences just aren’t going to be the same and we sometimes just need to take a deep breath and allow ourselves to RISE UP again! Whether that is coming from the Phoenix’s ashes or from the Resurrection.. embrace and REJOICE and everyone will be thankful and blessed!!!

Now, rather than have things ramble on.. How about some 90s rejoicing that is sure to bring about some chuckles!?!

And if you’d like to take a stroll down memory lane some more.. Here is the wonderfully fabulous Queen Mary’s, ‘Real Love’.

I hope everyone managed the Full Moon Eclipse over the weekend well and you’ll continue having a BLESSED week!!
