The Flower Moon in Full Bloom

So many projects are wrapping up right now, and they’ve bloomed wonderfully. I had a few things happen that I normally would worry about, but instead I paused, took a deep breath, and reminded myself to have faith in the universe. And so far, things are mostly working out πŸ™‚

When I waste my energy on worrying, not only do I not have as many resources available to deal with things when they do go wrong, but when things go right (and they usually do) I’ve thrown away all that time that I could have been spending productively!

Goals for the Quickening Moon

Happy New Moon day! At least, in my part of the world πŸ™‚ February’s full moon is called the Quickening Moon in some Celtic traditions, and it is one of my favorites.

Things are happening. Energy is gathering. Momentum is building.
