Jan. 21 Pisces

the astrological forecast from the Moon Woman. See the entire post HERE

During a Pisces transit we can really value time spent alone in peaceful solitude so don’t judge yourself for needing time apart, this is the inner wise woman wanting to sit with the space of pure potential – to rest in the stillness of Great Mystery. (It is not a sign you will end up living along with 86 cats & whose to say you wouldn’t enjoy that anyway!)

This cheered me up this Morning

Message from the Universe:

Think back to a happy time, Shari, a really, really happy time in your life. Go back as far as it takes, to a time when you felt so light you thought you might float.

 

Do you remember it? The carefree feeling? The acceptance of the moment, of yourself, of life? Feeling unfettered by thoughts of the future and oblivious to the past?

 

Feel it a little longer…

 

There. Very nice.

 

Yours,

The Universe

A time that I always treasure was in 1967, a very eventful year for me, I graduated from High School, went away to college, lost my virginity, fell in love and had a most wonderful time. Of course this was also my #METOO moment… but that was survivable.

Anyway, it was November and I had a late afternoon class. Snow was expected, which was very unusual for southern New Mexico. I had on my favorite coat, a navy Pea Coat and I felt pretty and happy (I was also in love… sigh…). On my walk across campus it started snowing and it was magical. Snowballs were thrown and I felt light and airy…

Great feeling and this post brought it back to me instantly, even though it was 50 years ago… Memory is amazing.

Message from the Universe is back on track

Sometimes it hits the spot, and sometimes it misses, but this is spot on

Now let me get this straight, Shari: You want things that you don’t yet have, people in your life who you don’t yet know, and events to take place that haven’t yet occurred, so that once these “things” come to pass, you’ll feel happy, confident, and fulfilled; accomplished, desired, and appreciated; treasured, adored, and like a-beautiful-sight-to-see?

 

But… wasn’t that your rationale for all the other stuff you wanted that you now have?

 

Green light!

Art Date

Friday I took myself on an art date. I had made plans with a friend (I have two tickets to exhibits at the Amon Carter Museum in Ft. Worth.) Anyway the plans fell through, so I went by myself.

No photos allowed in the Monet exhibit, but when you exit the exhibit, you enter a gallery of asian pieces. Photos are allowed there.20161230_124509

This is for all my metamorph classmates.20161230_124606 I thought of Erin Faith Allen when I saw this one… Even though is is from the 1700’s

And this is just so contemporary…20161230_124716 even though it is from c. 1770
20161230_125812 20161230_125859I had seen some Monets in a Impreassionist retrospective in Albuquerque and some in Paris, but this was a pretty amazing exhibit. The exhibit closes at the end of January 2017.

My New Years Words

Several years ago I found a fantastic little snippet that I have used as a New Year’s greeting for the last three years. Today and two years ago today I shared it as words at church (Oak Cliff UU) The same saying was shared no less than 5 times today on facebook… hoping that I started a trend by sharing it two years ago…

Here it goes:

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness.                                                                     I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you are wonderful,                                                     and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can.                                           And I hope, somewhere in the coming year, you surprise yourself.                                                                                                                                                                   Neal Gaiman

 

without grace, but with persistence

Persistence pays off and my late blooming orange-ish Christmas cactus is in full glory…

but my pink one is persistent (if not as graceful)20161230_083400

Anyway, Quinn Creative posted today and there is a quote in her post (see the entire post HEREthat just tickled my fancy…

… look at where you started in 2016 and how far you have come. Overcoming difficulties. Skirting tough times with grace. OK, without grace, but with persistence. Looking back to see how far you have come is a necessary step to keep moving ahead.

My word for the year is RESISTANCE, and yes I mean that in caps…

Should make for a very interesting 2017.

Isn’t there an old adage “May you live in interesting times”

Have a Happy New Year!
