How do you fight your daemons? Your fears? How do you turn around days that start with feeling horrible, un-motivated, ready to give up? What do you do to give yourself strength? The sky might be gray but you know those dark clouds will clear up eventually. An obstacle might have arisen but you know […]

OK, we admit it: both of us sneak way too often in our daughter’s room to pull a card from her ‘Cherub Angel Cards for Children’ deck by Doreen Virtue. I can’t help it, this deck is just too cute. The one we pulled today is really worth sharing at large, as we think many […]

Thy will be done

Thy will be done (Saturn went direct)

August 14, 2016

Filed under: Astrology, Photo, Quotes

As of yesterday (August 13th), Saturn – which has been retrograde since March – went direct. The past few months have been a period of introspection, discoveries and buried memories re-surfacing. Attempts to control things have been frustrating and external things stood still for a while during this intensely emotional period. It is likely that, […]

What have you learned during the last couple of days? Hopefully you have managed to get more grounded and balanced, you had plenty of insights, you felt better and you got something done.

When I was a little kid, on some rainy Saturdays, I used to play with my dad. One of his favorite games was to lay out on the desk a ton of little plastic soldier figures, representing entire armies from different times and regions, and set them up for improbable ‘duels’ outside of the socially […]

Things might move slower that our minds would like, today. And yet there is a sensuality in how everything is beautifully unfolding. Even when you look at how gracefully you stepped onto life’s challenges and have overcome them, there is always a miraculous set of seemingly unrelated actions that in retrospective show ourselves how everything […]

Walk your talk and do as you say. Get over your fears, and just do what’s right. Don’t wait for others to fix your issues. Own your life. Lead by example. Just do it. Don’t feel paralyzed by the many options, don’t over think it. Take the first step. Savor the first bite. One foot […]

Hi dears, we are in Malta and we have started exploring the wonderful temples, which are among the oldest megalithic stone structures still standing on earth.

Mary Magdalene (celebrated as a saint on July 22) traveled with Jesus as one of his followers. She has witnessed Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. Some say she was married to Jesus and they even had kids. [see http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/books/the-ancient-manuscript-that-proves-jesus-married-mary-magdalene-and-had-children-a6982836.html ] But Mary Magdalene was also given the reputation during the middle ages of being a repentant […]

Hi dears, in this period of release and ‘spring cleaning’ of old emotional clutter, sometimes we feel we have lost our way, or that road is just too difficult, or too painful. Let go of fear!

Hi dears, don’t let the full moon and the bad things you hear in the news let you distract you from working on yourself and becoming a better, freer, wiser being. You can’t change other people and make them do (or not do) things, but you can choose what you do, who you are, and […]
