“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”  ―Marilyn Monroe

Pain & Healing…

Pain & Healing

“Pain is a pesky part of being human. It feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can’t be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.”  ―C. JoyBell C.

Full Moon in Scorpio + Lunar Eclipse

Every month, I try to take the day of the Full Moon off, even if that just means escaping to get a manicure or grabbing a few hours of 100% private time, no one nagging me, no phones ringing, etc. This started when Wicca became a part of my life over 10 years ago, and I’ve kept it up because I like having the day to sort of focus on myself a bit and recharge my batteries.

I’m a big moon/star watcher. I love my Eastern/Western views of the moon and various constellations, but as I’ve previously stated, once the sun rises, I’m done.

Today is the Full Moon in Scorpio (100% Sign Pride!) and some of us will also be able to see the Lunar Eclipse as part of this. I love seeing any kind of eclipse, they’re so fascinating and beautiful to watch. Anyone that is able to snag a photo of this will be lucky, for sure.

This morning I found a neat little piece about today’s moon and thought I’d share it.

“FULL SCORPIO MOON: Scorpio is the most misunderstood energy of the zodiac. It doesn’t help that Scorpio’s symbol is a creature with a painful sting, or that Scorpio rules the sex organs, or that it is associated with the death card of the Tarot. You might say that Scorpio specializes in the kind of topics one might avoid in polite conversation, but it just so happens that there wouldn’t be a context for polite conversation if not for the energies that Scorpio rules: Life, Death, Regeneration, Existence. (The fact that I have a Scorpio glyph tattoo, as well as a symbol for Life, Death & Rebirth won’t come as a surprise.)

This particular Scorpio moon is pregnant with the profound feeling that your existence is so improbable that you had very well better do something interesting with it, if not something downright great. The lunar eclipse will be a momentary “reset” — a cosmic do-over button that allows a different approach, a fresh attitude or a second shot at what’s important to you.

In her pregnant phase, the Scorpio moon wants us to hold on to hope. Possibilities exist in situations that seem impossible. You never know when and how things will turn around. There is nothing, and then suddenly there is everything. Life is more magical for those who choose to believe.”

Interesting, huh? My horoscope is always pretty accurate in terms of what is going on in my life, so I was glad to see this and get a tiny glimmer of peace from the knowledge that things WILL eventually get better.

For all you non-Scorps, I hope you have a great day and get to enjoy the moon this evening. For all “my people” (fellow Scorps), enjoy the day and night, for it is in this hour that we reign supreme.

New Leaves…

New Leaves

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”  ―Arnold Bennett
