Listen for the voice of the turtle. You may be tired of the same old news but when you ‘get’ how you are an expression of nature, truly a child of this earth, it all becomes more interesting. When we calm our own nervous system it will help calm the collective one. The gap between circumstances and a plan to deal with them remains. But we’re getting there. The absence of Venus from the visible sky this spring suggests we need some rethinking regarding our pleasures. Which of these harm the planet? How can we change? It’s a process. Look inward and consider the simple pleasures, the un-frenetic ones. The online world demands constant consumption, relentless proof that we are having a good time. Genuine introspection will bring us to a higher quality of all things beautiful and pleasurable.
March: It’s not easy to be born again to spring. The body adjusts. Help it. Notice the feeling of waking up. Be like the first flowers of spring – delicate, colourful, promising nothing in particular but renewal. New Moon: March 13. Full Moon: March 28th.
April: The big issue of 2021 is to learn all we can, building on what we know in a rapidly changing world. It’s all in the application. If it doesn’t work it isn’t practical. New Moon: April 11. Full Moon: April 26.
May: Listen. Focus. Distraction is easy in the moment but it eats time and wastes energy. Be like a juggler; keep your centre even as you notice when to catch and when to release. Movement from the still place at the centre is the opposite of distraction. New Moon: May 11. Full Moon: May 26.
