This month has been about 5 months long already. Is it just me? We have a house guest for an unknown length of time, took care of a very, very sick dog who ended up having to be put to sleep (is there another way to say that? Put to sleep just sounds so…I don’t know, just wrong; he’s not sleeping). The weather has been insane, I’ve got about a billion tasks on my plate, and on top of all that, I was trying not to drink.
The dog just sent the wagon hurtling over the edge, and I’m really to damned tired and sad to care about whether I drink or not. He truly was a gentle giant and today would have been his third birthday. My heart hurts, and it wasn’t even our dog! He was the brother to one of ours, though.
Add in the never-ending train wreck that our government is, and I’m over this month.
Today the dark moon is in Taurus – yes, dark moon. Contrary to calendars, it is NOT the new moon when you can’t see the moon at night (check out Lady Althaea’s excellent post about the difference). This is a pause in the dance, one I’d love to take advantage of, but I’ve too much to do today.
BTW, the new moon is when you see the crescent, and that will be on Tuesday. Theresa Reed wrote a post about the new moon and what it means, including some card readings for each sign.
Be kind, be safe, and please, take care of yourself. If you can, take advantage of this pause and have a self-care day. If you can’t, well, be as gentle with yourself as you can.

PS: the other day I offered a few free 15-minute sessions on Twitter, and one of them was given to Christina Ng of Reconnects Reiki. It was a simple, short, general session, and this was her feedback:
“THANK YOU. That went deep. Took my Angels’ advice to go lie down in my treatment room to minimize dizziness. Between you, your guides, & mine, I was able to rearrange my shields to dump out garbage and pull back my own soul fragments… esp. around my brain & eyes.”
I tell you what…feedback never fails to amaze me! 🙂
