As you can see Arthur is poised and ready to channel some Astrology. He merely uses the book as a prompt as I am convinced that cats are so tuned in they have mastered the art of divinely directed sensitivity and appropriate responses to stimuli and they know what’s going on all the time down to the minutiae of awareness. And of course, they know how to sleep or maybe they are meditating or maybe, as Mary Oliver suggests, they are praying. I am grateful to have Arthur as my co-quarantine house mate and I am learning so much about fine-tuning my own sensitivity to receiving proper direction and course correction. I am also honing my telepathic and intuitive abilities, all of which is going exceedingly well. Unfortunately none of this is helping my typing.
Today, as I take a breather from the truly wild emotional roller coaster I seem to be riding, I had to share with you my dear friend Marty’s latest art activism project. Marty is the least political person I know but the most effective art activist. Each project her voice rings true as proponent of LOVE through ART to raise the vibration and keep it going. Before the HEART project she was yarn bombing trees in the wee hours in the Pacific NorthWest then decorating poles and lampposts in Boulder (surprise!) and now she is outside Palm Springs in the wild wind desert on the road to Joshua Tree where she is managing her heart project. She and a few of her students have been knitting tiny hearts and then, when people are snoozing, hang them on doorknobs and car handles. Kind of like if the Easter Bunny and the St. Valentine cherub had a LOVE child that would be Marty and her minions.
Flowers on roses only form on the new growth and so I had to hack back the frozen and damaged branches to make way for the new growth and flowers to come later this month. I can’t help but see the parallel to our own experience this Spring – hacking waaaay back all the things we thought we would be doing and returning to a refined, cut back version of ourselves, making way for new growth.
Full Moons are always times of release and absolutely no time like this potent Scorpio Full Moon to release all emotions that have been stored, built up, reservoired, saved for a rainy day, and generally repressed – time for a grand release in a way that hurts neither yourself nor any other beings in your range, but finding ways to release your emotions so you are left free to grow new leaves, new branches, for your own blossoming to come forth.
