I think this seems to be a trending question for every month passing by these last couple of years. I may have already stated this fact before, but…it’s true – time is speeding up and in all seriousness: where did August go? 🙂
Outside. That’s where mine went. Out on the property/homestead doing this-n-that’s.
Having a garden showing you every day how hard your work is paying off is such a lovely, fruitful, reminder. Since our garden is a work-in-progress (aren’t they all though?) we have been excited to see veggies and fruits starting to come out of it. Last year was a struggle but it was also the first year for this newly built veggie arena. Yes, the pickin’s were slim; but so grateful for how far we came in one short season.
I am already excited for next year’s gardening! By then we will have already added more dirt and compost. We will be building up the soils, building up the beds, making these growing areas so homey and wonderful that the plants will want to stay forever! 🙂 hahaha!
Yes, gardening is one of my Zen’s. Love it!
August has come and gone but it was a good one, very productive! Was able to get in some fun travels and hang out with our kiddos too! Thanks August! You were wonderful! As summer begins to close-up shop – it’s on to my favorite season: fall! I’m looking forward to it, this year-autumn will be amazing! I feel it, I know it, and I will visualize it for my reality! I should say: I AM visualizing it to be my reality!
Yup, our last lunar eclipse for the year. It’s partial, and it’s tonight.
My thoughts on this one…
Well, since this is the other slice of bread to the sandwich that was ‘eclipse season’…
I. am. tired! I have felt pretty drained since the solar eclipse that was on the 2nd. It also seems to be more of a mental-drain than an all-out physical one. I do my best to take-care and pay attention to what my body is saying to me. Some days are better than others.
I would tend to think that a LOT of us are feeling this planetary-cosmic-Universal potpourri of goings-on’s right now! I mean – geesh… eclipses and retrogrades and ramping up towards the Lion’s Gate portal (er… Sirius Day!) 🙂 I am definitely going to take a soak in some Epsom salts.
Cleaning, clearing and releasing will be going on for a while but as long as it IS going on – things will continually/consistently improve. There is no going backwards. I have probably said this before but it is true. Some work is better than no work. Sure, there might be (what feels like) some stagnant times but it is still the process of moving forward. That’s the beauty of trusting and Divine timing… sometimes slow and steady wins the race; whatever ‘race’ you are in for that particular moment/issue/situation.
I love being out on Gaia right now. What I mean by that is – being in the yard, my garden, outside in general. Soaking up the sun and sending it love for the beautiful rays-of-light that powers me up! I feel like I could go to sleep under the sun for days and just… absorb and integrate! Sounds crazy probably – but I have thought about it! 🙂 The thought of sizzling out there does make me NOT want to do that though. So, instead of the sleeping – I do the yard work. I just want to be out – in it!
I am also finding myself doing some cleaning up around here. Just wanting things to be ‘fresh and clean’. I have been neglecting the house this last month and it was starting to show. You know… because I just want to be outside.
Yup, I would say – the energies are pretty high right now and those that don’t understand are probably the most confused by it all. I remind myself to be patient and be in observation-mode while they go through… whatever it is they need to go through. It’s not up to me to get them to the answer, they need to find their own answer. But I can only hope that I might be able to offer a word or two of a different perspective. When I hear a response of: ‘I never thought of it that way’- then I know that they will now continue on, with their processing, with a new puzzle piece. There’s no judgement, no could-a/should-a’s, no you’re doing it all wrongs… just a different perspective coming from an observation. I think most are needing this kind of love right now. The non-judgmental kind.
It’s hard not to ‘judge’ because we have all been programmed to do so; with each other and mostly ourselves. Man, we’re so hard on ourselves! If we are constantly judging and comparing and self-loathing – then how can we be anything above that for others? I mean, really? It becomes fake. It is fake. We really need to be checking-in with ourselves first. Self-love is the new black. When you really dig deep and start caring for yourself as the one-true-love… it will open your world! It is absolute freedom!
And… because I truly love and respect myself – I will be soaking in an Epsoms salts bath on this amazing full moon partial lunar eclipse evening! I will be aiding my physical body in the removal of… whatever needs to be removed! Clean, clean, clean… right? 🙂
Here’s to moving forward! To going onward and upward! Love yourself so that you can be love, come from love, and share the love!
For me (where I live) – it’s at 12:22. Pretty cool that it’s on the ‘2’ day. I, personally, have been seeing a lot of 12:22 on the good ole clock this past month or so. Actually – I have been noticing a combo of 1’s and 2’s. I always find it fun, interesting, and know the guidance from the Universe is with me. ❤
I won’t be able to view this one (not for America). But I will be taking ‘pause’ during its peaking-moments to feel its vibes! This should be a pretty intense portal but in a positive way. Like them eclipses always do… they help us bring stuff to the surface so we can take a look at it – then clean it up and purge (if need-be). This one will probably feel deeply emotional (it is a Cancer/water one).
I believe that this one will have us working on our fears. What keeps us and holds us back, the things we tend to do/think that keeps us in a limited way-of-being. These little buggars will most likely be bubbling up this month. They probably have been showing up already. This is the perfect month to clear and transform this stuff! Reset! Rebirth! Renew! All those ‘re’-sons we tell ourselves (stop ourselves/block ourselves) need to go bye-bye. The day(s) of self-sabotage and self-doubt (fears/limits) need to be dissolving. Don’t you think? I do!
I have been working on this area within myself for a while. I gotta say – it doesn’t happen overnight. But it DOES start to get weaker within your thought patterns; transforms as you build your strength. As you become stronger within your heart-space and open up to more love, light and trusting yourself/inner-knowing… the fear(s) dissolve; especially as you work on the resolve. Some fears/doubts do take longer than others… they have been deeply programmed after all. It’s okay. Cut yourself some slack as you clean yourself up. At least you are working on it. And any time you work on improvement it advances (sometimes propels) you forward. Let the power(s) of any and all eclipses help assist you. 🙂
Love and blessings,
Enjoy the magnificent energies of today (and this month)!
Stopping in real quick to acknowledge this wonderful portal day!
I will be outside working the earth, this beautiful Gaia, by being in the garden, the yard/the house, and (of course) with the animals! It’s a busy time for me (for us here on our homestead) but I love every minute of it! I do love summer! 🙂
As always – this is a great portal day to be grounded while setting your intentions for your wonderful reality! Bring yourself, attract to you, the awesome reality that you want to be living! Visualize, meditate (not mandatory – but sure does help. Also – visualizing IS a meditation), and actively take steps towards it. These can be small baby steps; and even – take baby steps towards and for the baby step!
Take it easy on yourself and don’t be harsh towards your inner-monologue if you aren’t seeing anything huge manifesting (timing is a Divine-thing). Most of the time it’s the little things. Develop your awareness in all the little things. When you tune in to this – you began to see the synchronicities… then you will develop trust in these. It grows from there! See… what a simple baby step, am-I-Right?? 🙂 I bet you didn’t even realize you were manifesting?
It comes with awareness, tuning in, then trust… You got this!!
Be open to receive the Divine wisdom, the love and the light that already is: you!
