At this moment in time, on this very date, there are a dizzying quartet of planets spinning backwards in our solar system. Okay, fine. We all know that “Retrograde” doesn’t literally mean that anyone has come out of their orbit to intentionally mess with us by reversing course.
We do know that it DOES have Real Life meaning and physical (as well as emotional) repercussions, though. The one we’re most familiar with, Mercury, seems to be the most challenging. But only when we crash up against it.
In truth, once we stop the struggle, then the learning get’s easier. (As with so many places in our lives, this applies.)
The perspective (of what’s difficult and what’s a blessing) is where we need to focus. Saying it’s all the worst just makes it all the worst.
That entire concept is what I was shown this morning, and then, on our card altar, we were handed another message about speaking clearly. Because the Universe has a very finely honed and moderately perverse sense of humour. Apparently.
“Communicating Freely ~
‘I communicate from the depths of my being.’
Allow the truth of your soul to be felt and heard. It is an act of power to speak freely and easily. Be willing to stand tall and address people from the center of your being.
Know that you can heal yourself and others through communication. This isn’t the time to step back – rather, it is the time to step forward and share from your heart.
The Universe wants you to know:
You are a natural teacher, and you have the ability to empower and enrich the lives of others through your words.
Step into your role as a teacher and leader. Additionally, if there is something that you have held back, now is your opportunity to bring this truth to the light of day.
Communication can restore trust and mend lifelong wounds. Take a risk. Speak from your soul with clarity and authenticity, even if it’s not easy to do. If there is any unspoken darkness that lies heavily upon you, now is the time to unburden yourself.
If there’s someone you love whom you haven’t told, share your feelings. Communication can heal, free, and transform your life.
Questions to ask yourself:
Is there anyone I need to communicate with? Is there some type of communication that I have been withholding? What might I need to do to step into my role as a teacher and leader?
I communicate from the depths of my being.”

is actually a view from yesterday’s looooong ride.
Under a bridge (past the park, down by the river), there are some nesting birds. Along the parking lot edge, there is this sort of fall-out. All the babies looked healthy (thankfully no tiny corpses), so this type of detritus is merely some of Mother Nature’s compost. Always fun to find!
