Trusting openness…

This deck was given to me by a friend, as you may recall from a prior post. I really like its artwork and its thoughtful wording. Every so often I’ll pull a card randomly to see what tidbit of truth the Universe wants to toss my way. There’s always something in it for me, especiallyContinue reading “Trusting openness…”

Outer planets…

This month Janae continues to reveal the facets of Transcendental Astrology by introducing the Outer Planets: Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. These three planets are farthest from our Sun and seem to have little connection with our daily lives. Astrologers concur that their affect is generational, sprinkled with once-in-a-lifetime collective events that seem very personal whenContinue reading “Outer planets…”

Blessings…

We are each a spark of universal light, love’s creation. Our job is to discover the light within, fan its flame, and share it with others. No grand gestures need to be made, instead kindness will do. A simple kindness has more power and influence than we can even imagine; its effects can linger andContinue reading “Blessings…”

It was such a nice surprise to come upon it and a beautiful reminder of how I had hoped my books wouldContinue reading “Expanding reality…”

The cop and the crypt…

This month Janae delves more deeply into the workings of Transcendental Astrology by introducing a new set of characters into the mix. Here’s her explanation: Sorry for that bit of fun, but it’s a title I think we’ll not forget. The cop in our chart is Saturn and the crypt in my title is Jupiter.Continue reading “The cop and the crypt…”

Dance a jig…

I have tons of screen shots on my phone of interesting, clever, thoughtful, funny, and inspiring posts that come through my social media. A lot of them I send to family and friends to add a smile or laugh to their day; others I keep as future blog ideas. Last week’s post about Kurt VonnegutContinue reading “Dance a jig…”
