Nursing the Possibilities…

The last several weekends have been incredibly busy, which has left me doing all sorts of gardening prep and maintenance on the week nights after work, which only provides me with a couple hours of sunlight.

(Potted a little over 70 seed pots, cannot wait to see what comes up! Each side is some Fennel and Calendula)

So, Sunday, I had promised myself that after all was said and done, this day would be the day to continue working with my seedlings, mow the lawn, and even shock the pool. Alas, it doesn’t look like much was going to happen yesterday, as the rain clouds, although not in one big clump, are sparse throughout the area, which is going to result in passing rain showers like every 20 minutes! But, Scott and I were busy-busy at keeping up with Mum Gaia as she spread her light showers. And we were totally okay with that, really. Mother Nature has a job she needs to do, and I firmly believe that we need to let her do it. She can most certainly live without us, however WE cannot live without HER!

(Excited to finally see my Roses and Morning Glories coming in to bloom, and that mystery daisy-looking plant finally flowered, and it’s Fleabane!  How exciting!)

So, the grass was mowed, and I got about 70+ seedlings planted in their starter pots. When I was finished, I stood in front of my little greenhouse, like a hovering new mother looking into the nursery. Maybe that’s why gardens and hospitals call these places “nursery”. We are nursing the things in that room to grow and thrive.


On another note, I’ve been keeping up with what’s going on astrologically. Mercury will be thankfully going out of retrograde status on May 22. But that still leaves 3 others in the retrograde phase. Mars, Saturn and Pluto.

With Mars, we need to remember this is a good time to SLOW down. When we try hard to make things happen, things can backfire if you are not prepared. And especially with Mars AND Saturn being retrograde, you best remember this will most likely happen. Expect to work a little harder for things. (in my case, that’s just a normal day for me hahaha). And then you’ve got little Pluto out there, reminding us that now is the time to cleanse the inner most part of ourselves. To walk away from things and people who no longer serve our greater good. When you are awake, it can be acutely difficult to be around those who are still in a sleep mode. You continue to love them and wish them peace, but their own lack of ascending is only going to hinder your own journey. Take time to seek within. Sometimes we have to make decisions that may hurt others, but will bring YOU peace. And you know what? Sometimes, you HAVE to make that sacrifice. You cannot be 100% for others if you are not 100% for yourself. I’m not giving you the liberty to make decisions based on selfish desires, but more suggesting you take a hard look at the who’s and what’s in your life that are bringing your soul down. And when the soul ain’t happy, nothing else about you will be either. I know people close to me who are suffering, or making decisions just like this. And as hard as it is for them, it is for the best of all concerned. If anything, that is what these retrogrades are teaching us right now. Slow down, think about what is good in your life and stick with it. Think about what’s bad in your life and let it go. It’s really that simple, even if the action itself is difficult to finish.


I myself have had a lot to think about in the last couple weeks. It doesn’t make it easier that the retrogrades have been causing a bit of a riot in my own life. Things not going right, conversations being skewed, plans being rescheduled, etc etc etc….For me, it relates to a bigger picture in my life. What does one do when every part of your beings KNOWS a change needs to be made, and yet, outside forces and even my own brain is telling me, “no no no, it’s too risky”. To say I’m scared is an understatement. But I know the universe has a way of working things out for the betterment of all, and so I have to trust in it. Deep inside I know this is a time of great possibilities. And I just need to have faith, right?
Great possibilities. Like my garden. I look around, and see so much possibility. The potential for growth, harmony, existence, life and so on…like my own personal journey is reflected into what is the Sacred Gardens. Because my life is sacred. Our planet is Sacred. And my soul is the nursery. Tending and caring for its very existence to grow and thrive in this world.

The Super Hunter Moon in Taurus!

wpid-energy-of-blue-moon-2015-astrology.jpg

Today is a very powerful day for many people. This morning, The Hunter Moon (in Taurus) went into her Full Moon Completion. How many people felt this? Here are some examples that this particular Moon was affecting you:

  1. Your dreams have been extremely vivid.
  2. Your emotions have been running very high.
  3. Your shadow side has been coming out a little more (Your shadow side is the side of who you are that you rarely let people into, really only the closest people you know, even if it is just yourself, know this side of you. The shadow side can also be explained as the side of you that is darker, more mysterious. The side of you you wish you could change).
  4. You are feeling a need for freedom in your life.
  5. Your desire for change has become profound and significant in the last few days.

There are plenty more examples, but these are the big ones. See, our bodies are mostly made up of water. So, why wouldn’t our beautiful Moon not have an effect on us? If the Moon can govern the tides of the seas, what makes people think she cannot govern our bodies as well?

This particular Moon is also a Super Moon. Third one in a row! How crazy is that???? Within the next few days, we are going to be experience a moment of completion in our seasonal year. For many people, Samhain (please see my previous blog) is the ending and beginning of the Celtic Year. This is the time of year when our gardening is done, everything is put away, and we retreat to the indoors where we feast and celebrate and hibernate for the next few months. This Moon came at a perfect time for us. This is a time to sit down and think about what we have done over the last year, and what we can now let go to what no longer serves us, and think about the new things you want to bring into your life.

This is a time for change. For letting go of what once was. You have the power and capabilities of so much, and this is a wonderful time to make it happen. Allow these next few weeks to figure out what needs to get out of your life, so that when the NEW Moon comes to us, you can begin to plan what is going to come INTO your life. Your soul is calling out to you…Can you hear it?

Chiron is actually opposing Venus right now. In the moment of letting go, this is great time to figure out the healing aspects in your life. Remember the theory of Karma: What you put into your life is going to come back to you. So, while we are preparing for our annual hibernation, why don’t you think about what you need to forgive in your life? Who you need to forgive, who needs to forgive you?

This is a grand time for some good old fashioned self- love. To be able to look into the mirror, and say to yourself, “I love you”. If you can do that, you are on your way! If you cannot, however, then you know what then needs to be healed first: YOU.

Take this time to go outside this evening for Her majestic Moon Rise (6:33 PM EST), and feel her vibration. Close your eyes, and imagine her pearly opal energy shining down into your body, feeding your soul. If you can tonight, light a white or silver candle in honor of the Moon. We are children of the Earth, take the time to honor our Mother!

This is going to be an incredible night for many people, I hope you are one of them!
