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

Pink Mooning

I hit the re-set button on Tuesday and spent some time appreciating my loved ones. I really like the feeling of having a "New Years Eve" feeling in the middle of the month, although it does feel like things are moving a lot more quickly.

Overwatering : A Metaphor

My plants have finally stopped dying. This seems to run in my family; a group of gifted outdoor gardeners (my mother has been working toward a Master Gardener qualification), who can't keep anything alive once it comes indoors. The notorious exception is a cactus that has been in the family for two decades. I love… Continue reading Overwatering : A Metaphor

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

Time Perspectives : Moon Cycles

I'm trying a new thing and feeling a little wee-woo about it, but here we go!  One of the things we talk about in psychology, and by we I mean Philip Zimbardo, is time, and the way that we perceive time. There are 6 main ways of thinking about time: Past-focused, positive (you remember the… Continue reading Time Perspectives : Moon Cycles
