gratituesday 10/14

It’s Tuesday and I’m grateful.

For friends, family, fun, rest, busy-ness.

For cool mornings, sunny and warm afternoons, autumn’s bounty.

For a comfortable and reliable car to drive while my car is in the shop.

For feeling better in my body since the jolt from above.

For the Samhain season and today’s full moon in Aries. Spontaneity of Aries opposed the Libra sun’s need to maintain peace at all costs. Neptune’s compassion brings cooperation and harmony.

Two more days and then Mercury turns direct again. That promises to be a relief, after the two weeks of *Mercury shadow*, when Mercury retraces its path and we get to revisit old issues and take them to completion if we can, if we choose.

I’m grateful for the thinning of the veils this season. Time to welcome and commune with our ancestors. Our family, friends, loved ones. Our cultural ancestors. And our spiritual ancestors. The pagan new year approaches.

I am grateful for getting to be astrogirl for my coven and to do this research.

I’m grateful for getting to see the hula show this weekend. Amazing. Beautiful. Inspiring.

I’m grateful for Lindy in the Park and dancing in the sunshine.

I’m grateful for time with Heidi—how wonderful to celebrate her happiness.

I’m grateful for time with family—dad and Barbara and Allen.

I’m grateful for getting to the Oldtimers meeting yesterday. I am grateful to be going to more meetings.

I’m grateful to be alive. All is well. Blessed be.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
