Hi all

Thursday, September 24, 2009

Today I quit my job. Gave the store two weeks' notice. I believe passionately in the mission of the place, but I feel that the changes that seem to me to be absolutely necessary there won't take place. Rather than throw myself against the wall, in the hopes that I'll soften it, I choose to walk away.

There's some pain involved, but mostly I feel lighter and happier. I'm clear that I made the right choice for me.

This will give me more time (while I'm looking for my next job) to do all sorts of things, including post more frequently here. I love this blog, and I want to sharing what I have more often.

My last day is October 9th.

a fond hello

...to all of you who follow this blog. Very tough times at work -- no surfing here! rather, trying hard to swim and not to drown -- have captured almost my complete attention.

This New Moon is supposed to initiate a very productive cycle. I'm not feeling it, but I trust my sources. Whaty I'm feeling dovetails most closely with what Karen is saying over at emergingearthangels.com: A profound and sudden separation from people that up until very recently I valued highly. A sense of being in another place. An opening of an abyss of knowledge below me: looking at new depths. Not depressive depths, but a deeper understanding both of my own character and some of the mechanics of relationships and of my daily life. So I'm not depressed (though I am exhausted!); I'm...I don't have a word. Or words. But I'm OK.

Be well, my dears, and I'll see you soon.

Edited to add: This separation is NOT from my internet friends. It's about people that I work with, and some family.

....a long, cold, hard winter. Thus says Guidance, which is right most of the time.

Let's see how they do with weather. But I'm really feeling this.


she said to herself. Or, I said to myself.

Today was one tough, tough day at work. I'm really destabilized and in need of deep grounding.

And yet, everything is unfolding in just the way it should.

a bit from me; more from Guidance

Tomorrow is a big day. 9/9/09 -- not just the numbers, resonant in themselves, but the completion of one big cycle; which also (always) means, the the start of another one.

Guidance says: "This is BIG, people! Listen up! Be careful of your words, for they fly like butterflies or daggers from your mouths. Be clear about what you want, because verily it will come to you. Let your minds stretch, and your hearts stretch wider. Whatever is, is; and whatever you can let into your bigger heartminds will nestle in and be safe. Provide safety, both for yourselves and for others. Those that can hear, will hear; and those that can't, are more porous than they know; something of this will trickle in regardless, and nourish that seed sequested in the bottom of the heart."

And if your day is quiet? Rejoice, for you're in your proper space.

Be well, my dears.....

Mercury retrograde

Monday, September 7, 2009

yup, we're beyond the shadow, we're wading in, and it sucks already.

Communication is going to suck. Just suck. So be careful what you say and who you say it to. This retrograde is in Libra, which means that it's partially about relationships. Who do you love? What does it mean to you, to love them? And how can you keep things even when you have to examine every word that comes out of your mouth?

For those of us who speak impulsively (i.e., me) it's going to be very interesting.

I suspect there will be more computer problems than phone problems.

Be careful out there, my dears.............

a very soft Moon

..is what I'm feeling. Tomorrow morning is the moment of Full Moon (11am EST) so any outdoor work you want to do should happen tonight.

Be well, be happy. Enjoy what you have. Be in themoment. Look up and rejoice! for there's beautiful silvery light coming down upon you.
