MYOB: Self Care Act

by Administrator on April 7, 2014

In the guide we go into scheduling 3 things in 3 weeks that nourish you. You’ll do 1! It works. How about making an appointment for something kinda big that you want to do for yourself within 3 months? I just did that. I scheduled a saltwater floatation in May. In honor of my birthday. It feels great to do it. As you help yourself others benefit. People in the service business love to put something in their books in the future. It sets the tone.


Symbols …The Cormorant

by Administrator on September 26, 2013

Hi the topic of symbols, Friday I went to the mall, which is a rare event to see about resoling my favorite boots, and as I left I saw this little guy.
I stopped 4 parking spaces from him, took some pictures, and then finally he puked up a fish and flew away (i have a picture of that too). I looked up cormorant on-line since it’s not in my animal speak book. I found it soooooo interesting that maybe I’m not the only one to whom this message may be relevant:
This is a reminder that we must learn to enjoy our accomplishments, our catches in life and not allow others to distract us from the enjoyment of our accomplishments.
When the cormorant is an individual’s totem, the person will have a knack for accomplishing in unique ways what others could not seem to do. When it appears in our life as a message, it is a reminder for us to dive in to what we have been hesitating about. The cormorant teaches us how to dive into the waters of life creatively especially if we wish a new birth.

The Cormorants have been used as symbols of nobility, indulgence, and in more modern times a totem for fishermen and a bountiful catch.
The fishing technique of cormorant is excellent. They are skilled at maneuvering through murky waters and finding fish even at great depths. Not only that, they can literally swim under water. Often, they will swim alongside small boats and help fisherman at their task. They will swim under water and then pop back up when they have a fish in their mouth. This nature of the bird is considered to be very giving. They can signify prosperous times ahead. They can also indicate that a negative period in your life is going to be overcome.
When the cormorant comes to you as a guide, it is there to it give encouragement. It says that you need to engage in a new opportunity which you may think that you are unable to do. Because this bird is quite intelligent it is a representation that you need to use your own wit and skill to reach a goal or achieve a task. While this bird can be a spirit that comes to you, sometimes in times of need you may wish to call on the cormorant when you are feeling lost or out of touch with your own goals. The cormorant can teach you how to be more self-reliant and to use your own wisdom to attain your goals.


This New Moon…The Divine Feminine

Take the opportunity of this new moon with a solar eclipse to immerse yourself into a deeper feminine place.

Go to the earth, [...]

powerful aspect; your presentation of self

May 14, 2012

I rarely write about astrological aspects outside of the somewhat challenging mercury retrograde. This is a heads up and worth sharing. Venus is going retrograde on May 15th and will stay in that position until June 27th. That’s a nice chunk of time. This has so much to do with presenting oneself powerfully and authentically [...]
