When Politics And Power Take Precedence Over Pain Control

http://fibro.tv/component/content/article/8-blogs/87-when-politics-and-power-take-precedence-over-pain-control

This is extremely disconcerting. I haven’t live close to a doctor in nearly 7 years. Two of mine are out-of-state, which means at least an hour or so, sometimes longer, one way. Forget refills, because they physically make you come and pick them up, refusing to put any narcotic prescription in the mail. Many primary care physicians just want to pass pain patients off to “pain management” places where you’re treated like cattle. Every single pain management place I’ve been recommended to had an enormous waiting list just to get in the door. I don’t know about all of us, but I don’t have 2-3 years to “wait” for an appointment. I could be dead by then! Nor do I need to be lectured about how my pain isn’t as important as someone else’s. Denouncing a person’s pain is a huge part of the problem here as well.

New Moon In Taurus

nmc-april

Tonight will be a New Moon in the constellation of Taurus bringing with it a very intense period of new discoveries and new awakenings. We will be able to see what needs to be seen in order to fill in the gaps we have been missing and piece together the puzzle. We will see the world with sharp clarity.

So much of what has been suppressed is coming to the light, this New Moon is about truth and seeing what is really there and not what we want to see. This will be a time of seeing illusions about ourselves, illusions about others, and illusions about our world. All of these will start crumbling away so we can build on what is real and true.

This New Moon is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Bull. It’s time to enjoy life’s simple and physical pleasures, savor good food and enjoy activities that bring us in touch with nature and with our bodies. It’s time to stop and smell the roses, and to become more aware of what makes us feel comfortable and secure. With this potent Taurus energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. It’s time to make some solid yet realistic plans, and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings.

This New Moon is ruled by Venus, the Goddess of beauty and love. This is a good time to look at our personal relationships, either with family, a partner, work, or friends. Look at what may need improving and how to make things better. It is also a time to work on our relationship with ourselves, to realize your inner beauty, and pat yourself on the back for all the hard work you do.

The Taurus New Moon is about strengthening our sense of security. It is a time for re-evaluating our relationship with money and possessions and discovering what it is that truly makes us happy and fulfilled. It’s a time for considering new ways of increasing our income or earning power. We should be concentrating on what it is we can do to increase our own feelings of self-worth. We are asked to get in touch with what it is that we truly value and want in our lives, and to part with those things or situations that are not contributing to our feelings of worthiness. This includes identifying those things that give us a false sense of security.

This is a time for getting back to nature and seeing the beauty all around us at the moment, trees are full with foliage, flowers are starting to open up and bloom, fields are lush and green, days are bright and warm, birds are singing. Look at the beauty in our lives and be grateful for all you have. Try to stay positive and steer clear of negativity, look at the good things in your life and look at how to improve the bad things. Taurus gives us strength so now is a good time to get any tough jobs done you have been putting off.Taurus is an earth sign it is steady and reliable and down to earth, it is about self growth and nurturing.

Use this New Moon to grow both materialistically and spiritually. Nature is giving us so many gifts at the moment, don’t be afraid to take them and to dream of bigger and better things, ask for more, do more, be more. Look at what may be holding you back and get rid of it, the New Moon is about new starts, getting rid of the old and bringing in the new.

Have a blessed New Moon & may the Goddess watch over you.

Full Pink Moon In Aries

fullpinkmoon2015
Tonight is the Full Pink Moon. This name comes from the wild groundphlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of spring. Other names for this month’s Moon are Seed Moon, The Wind Moon, the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes, the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that fish swam upstream to spawn.There was a Lunar Eclipse this morning turning the Moon a dark blood-red color known as a Blood Moon. This is always a special time because the earth, the sun, and the moon were all in perfect alignment for a brief time.

In April, the thunderstorms of March are beginning to subside, and the wind picks up. Seeds are being blown about on the breezes, spreading life all around from one place to the next. This is a brilliant Moon to use for any new projects or ideas we may have, it is also the perfect time to conceive as fertility is abundant at this time.

The pull of the past can be strong at a lunar eclipse and this one is certainly no exception. We may find our best intentions going up in smoke as we embrace old habits and fall back into old destructive patterns. Try and be strong and not take the easy option, instead take the road which will give you the best results.

Emotions are running high on the Pink Moon, our smallest emotions can be magnified and intensified making us feel a little overwhelmed at times. This is the time to put your gratitude forth for all the many blessings in your life and to clearly speak aloud your intentions and desires to be heard by the universe as we step across this edge to the other side.

We are in a powerful time where we are asked to look at what is no longer working in our lives and inhibiting our further growth. Where are we surrounded by things, people, situations, attitudes that are actually toxic and need to be burned in the fire, so we can be reborn like the phoenix.

Use the light of this Full Moon to cast away negativity and the negative aspects of our lives and to let positive and good pour in. Open yourself up and allow your vessel to be filled with the blessings that the universe is sending out now.

Have a blessed Full Moon and may the Goddess watch over you.
