Full Wind or Seed Moon

Image
In April, about halfway through the month, the thunderstorms of March are beginning to subside, and the wind picks up which is often why this is called the Wind Moon.  Seeds are being blown about on the breezes, spreading life all around from one place to the next. In fact, this lunar cycle is often known as the Seed Moon. Trees have buds on them, spring daffodils and tulips abound, and the birds are nesting once more. Much like March, this is a time of conception and fertility and new growth.

For me, it is just that.  I am starting a lot of new growth.  I have come to peace with my feelings about my daughter and accepting my Parkinson's.  I have found a great program called Rock Steady Boxing that hopefully will help me get to where I want to go.  I will miss the rains and the speed of growth and creation around me, but look forward to working on my seeds of intent and my life.

Ostara \ Beginning of Spring

Image
Today, March 19th, is the first day of SPRING!!!!
This is what is happening to my seeds of intent:
1.  Continue to work on my health - now looking for a personal trainer
2.  Start balancing my case load so it is not overwhelming - raised my fees and taking more on my gender specialty side.
3.  Continue to follow the path the Goddess has put in front of me especially when it comes to being a therapist - just letting options open in front of me,
4.  Continue to process letting go of my daughter - did a very intense therapy that has helped.
5.  Be good to myself allowing myself to focus on emotional and then switching to physical not trying both at the same time.
6.  Focus on organizing my life so it allows me to do what I need to do to be good to myself - constantly working on new ways of being organized.
I am motivated to keep actively working and creating the picture of my future - I have good days and bad days but the good is outweighing the bad.

Today I had a wonderful day with…

Moving forward

So today I did a lot of self care and keeping the house organized.  This is really helping me feel good.
I had a great therapy session and my therapist feels I am much more relaxed.  I feel relaxed too!  I am trying to stay on top of things because I get depressed when I don't.  Here is hoping the rest of today is as good as the first part.

Balance

I have been struggling with balancing my life.  I am one of those people who is often an all or very little person.  When I get tired or depressed or my body is hurting, I struggle to do even the basics.  The house gets messy quickly, everything gets backlogged and so forth.

But then I get energy back or feel better and suddenly I have a really good day of cleaning and I am able to keep up for a few days or weeks and then I slide back.  I am trying to find the balance - today I am soar because yesterday I cleaned house for 8+ hours - so today I am taking it easier and picking up and keeping things clean but not taking on huge projects.

Although I took care of 2 annoying things.   The Master Bath Toilet whistled loudly every time you flushed it so I took care of that and our alarm was telling us the keypad had low batteries so I took care of that.  Let's hope I can keep up with things for a bit.

Full Storm Moon

March rolls in like the proverbial lion, and if we're really lucky, it might go out like a lamb. It's the time of the Storm Moon, the month when Spring finally arrives, around the time of the Equinox, and we see new life begin to spring forth. As the Wheel of the Year turns once more, heavy rains and gray skies abound -- the earth is being showered with the life-giving water it needs to have a fertile and healthy growing season.

This is also a time of equal parts light and darkness, and so a time of balance.Depending on where you live, this moon may be called the Seed Moon, Lenten Moon, or Chaste Moon. Polly Taskey at Pagan by Design says, "Anglo-Saxons called it Hraed-monat (rugged month), or Hlyd-monat (stormy month). A stormy March was an omen of poor crops, while a dry March indicated a rich harvest. Some books refer to February as the "Storm Month," however, I find this inaccurate. Where I live, March often IS stormy, and as the old wives tale goe…

getting myself organized

So yesterday I managed to start picking up the house and getting organized.  I started walking a bit and am now working on eating better and walking more.

I am working on trying to catch up on chores and start catching up on other paperwork.  It is a busy week but I am feeling really good and successful about it.

Tomorrow I am going to start adding back my spirituality and meditation.


Restarting AGAIN....

I have such a hard time getting myself on track and keeping myself on track.
Today I am restarting again.  I am not going to be down on myself for falling off the being healthy wagon, because I have been trying to be good to myself.  I may not have followed through health wise but I was working on my emotional and mental self.  I have been doing neurofeedback and therapy and trying to get over an annoying cold.

Today I am trying to get the house picked up and get some stuff done because I have a really busy work week (which makes me happy as I am really getting my practice off the ground)

So here is to a busy and fun week ahead.
