Weekend reading + mega flux mode

No, you’re right. It’s not the weekend. Not anymore. Not yet? Time is so wobbly.

Especially when life is mega flux mode. Time speeds up and slows down, and you’re not sure who or what is in control anymore. Life is a swirling vortex around you, and you have just enough presence of mind to hold on. (And to remember to snap a few photos on the road trip into town – the interior of Prince of Wales is breathtaking.)

I’m in the process of moving. Moving from my sailboat to a cabin on a tiny island. This seems to be a major theme for the Little Red Tarot team as of late. Half of us, including Beth, have uprooted this year already. We’re in transit. And Little Red Tarot seems to be in transit with us. What a beautiful reflection.

As an astrologer I often look to the macrocosm of the cosmos to understand the microcosm of my individual life, a Hermetic reflection. But – thanks to good ‘ol stress – my body has been loudly communicating with me, and I remembered that the microcosm of the body equally acts as a mirror to the macrocosm of my life. That’s relativity. That’s always having/knowing everything you need.

My body feels this transit, acts as my guide through overwhelm into peace and back and forth until balance is achieved. Nettles helps. Hawthorn too. It’s humbling to accept aid from the forest.

Grab a cup of tea or another forest food, and find some weekend-time amidst your week to peruse some links..
