Rose Moon : June 9th

I had planned to visit the Jardin de Bagatelle, plan for the future, trim my hair, and dust off my suit! Here's what actually happened. I have to say that I didn't take a minute to remember the moon on Friday. I was recovering from both my food poisoning/stomach drama while going through the revolving… Continue reading Rose Moon : June 9th


Flower (Moon) of a Different Kind

It's the full moon, today! I had planned the following activities : visit the Jardin des Plantes, bring flowers into the apartment, embroider a flower onto one of my t-shirts, prepare to receive the results of an application on June 6th. The best laid plans of mice and men! I have been working full time in… Continue reading Flower (Moon) of a Different Kind

The sense of urgency and momentum is nice, but I… Continue reading Pink Mooning

Pink Moon Planning

I plan to mark the Pink Moon on April 11th by doing something extra loving for E. As part of my Time Perspectives project, I'm planning out how to celebrate the full moons this year. When I originally wrote the post, I said that I wanted to do something extra intentional or loving for my… Continue reading Pink Moon Planning

Worm Moon/Storm Moon

I'm building in mini-NEW YEAR NEW ME moments into the year. In the interest of full disclosure: I'm going full wee-woo on this post. As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm doing this by observing the full moons at least up through August. I want to see how preparing for a transitional moment and living in… Continue reading Worm Moon/Storm Moon
