EMOTIONAL RECALIBRATION, FATIGUE AND DETOXIFICATION: PROCESSES OF CHANGE AND WAYS TO SUPPORT YOURSELF

Dermatomes_and_cutaneous_nerves_-_posterior.svg

Empathy fatigue or burnout is a real thing. Practising self-care, taking time out for yourself becomes ever more relevant. This is the minimum baseline for anyone seeking or providing spiritual services at this point in human evolution.

What I am feeling, and interpreting from the skies (not just now, but a couple of years ahead) is that we are being asked, or rather, required to evolve more resilient emotional circuitry.

Things are not going to calm down any time soon. Expecting them to will only cause further inertia, struggle and unnecessary suffering. So we´ve got to up our game instead.

Basically – 2012 was a threshold and we´ve been recalibrating since.

This does not mean that we can no longer afford to feel vulnerable or to recognize it as such. Suppressing your emotions is probably one of the worst things you could do. Numbing them by resorting to substances, addictive behaviors or other forms of escapism will not help in the long run either.

It means also finding strength in our emotions. Allowing the flow of energy and information that moves through the emotional channels to act in your favour, rather than otherwise.

That is (at minimum) a 2-part process:

Detoxification – unburdening the body, mind and spirit of accumulated debris

Recalibration – discovering a new way to exist within a rapidly evolving physical and spiritual climate

Here are some crystals that can help you in that process:

Aqua Aura Quartz
Larimar

They will intensify your emotional experiences but they can also help you find clarity and calm at the heart of the storm. Given the astrology of the coming years, this is going to be one of the most valuable skill-sets for the spiritually inclined.

You may also want to consider Unakite. It´s a slow-acting stone that needs to be on your person (except when cleansing it) that greatly assists the process of physical and emotional detoxification.

Daily habits to clear your space and body´s energetic field will have a cumulative benefit in the long run.

Smudging your space with sage or frankincense resin
Soaking your feet or body in salt water and essential oils such as tea tree, lavender, frankincense and so on (check for contraindications before use)
Drinking purified water – shungite is often used for this purpose
Eating healthy (as best you can)
Getting enough exercise and sleep

These are simple, but powerful actions that help your physical body detoxify and align itself with new vibrations coming in from the cosmos. It might not give you an instant benefit overnight, but it´s the kind of reward that reveals itself to you with time.

Remember that emotions are connected with the element of water and that our bodies are mostly water. It is not too much of a logical leap to suggest that taking care of the flow of water in the body will support emotional re-calibration.

Also consider working with modalities that help you relieve the burden on the nervous system, e.g. craniosacral therapy, homeopathy, acupuncture, herbalism – but remember to do your due diligence and go to someone who truly knows their work. There are many who do not.

Lavender or Basil essential oil (again, study before use) and the lepidolite gemstone can take some of the edge off nervous exhaustion – and to give you a little breathing space. For those with adrenal fatigue, taking that space to rest can mean feeling more tired (to begin with). And I know a lot of empaths are feeling the brunt of it at this time.

At the spiritual level all of this work ultimately relates to our connection with our bodies and the way they anchor a particular expression of your spiritual frequency. This can be modulated through the release of burdens, trauma and the practice of forgiveness.

And these are processes that take time and require daily work. Even if significant healing has been achieved, it still requires a conscious effort to stay aligned and afloat with cosmic changes.

The point being – there is no instantaneous magic wand that will make this happen in a blink of an eye. This is a process. The small steps add up to monumental leaps, over time.

Addressing this through the context of ´The Mother Wound´ may be beneficial as the foundations of your physical existence form during the gestation period in the womb. Some will address this through shamanic work that seeks to clear and heal the waters of the generational line. Others will use different modalities or paradigms to address the same issue. There is much more than can be expanded upon there.

I hope these initial comments and suggestions will be of benefit to you. Blessings to All.

HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIPS & YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH SPIRIT: 2 Inconjuncts – Jupiter / Neptune, North Node / Chiron (April – July 2017)

465px-ESO-Trifid_Nebula

Blessings everyone. Today I discuss two long-standing inconjunct aspects in the skies, involving Jupiter, Neptune, the North Node and Chiron. Over the next few months, these aspects significantly influence the way we navigate our personal, professional, romantic, creative, sexual partnerships alongside (or through) our spiritual experiences, approaches and paradigms.

Given the enormity of aspects that have been playing out in the skies, the temptation would be to overlook these as ´minor´ or less consequential alignments. My intuition tells me that would be a mistake as the way in which these inconjuncts strive to find some kind of equilibrium with one another influence the way ´major´ aspects will unfold.

Think of them as the valves that can control the flow and energy of a much larger body of water, or the sail that allows you to navigate your ship through the storm. The way you navigate these inconjunct aspects can give rise to subtle changes in approach and orientation – with great potential to alter your course, and even your destination.

Inconjunct aspects occur when two bodies are 150 degrees apart. With a third body is present, they may form Yods / Fingers of Fate. Yods are accelerants that take you to the crossroads of change faster than any other alignment. They are windows that help you navigate and renegotiate the way you experience, embody and/or transcend karmic patterns and lessons.

Without the third body, the inconjunct aspect creates a constant sense of disquiet. It is somewhat neurotic, or restless, in nature as the aspect is ´uncomfortable´. It is relentless in its pressure to find a more stable, or balanced way of relating the two bodies / energies in question. Analogies that come to mind are the sounds that fingernails make as they scrape on a chalkboard, or the incongruity of chalk and cheese, oil and water – and so on.

Let´s look at the two alignments in question.

(1) Jupiter inconjunct Neptune (April 21 – July 30)

Jupiter in Libra has been teaching us the lessons of growth through balance in personal and professional partnerships. It doesn´t always teach these lessons in a pleasurable way. It simply amplifies the opportunities for these lessons to occur.

Neptune in Pisces has been slowly, but surely, revealing to us ways in which we can access hidden, secret, ancient energies, memories and mystical gifts. For some, this is the path to transcendence and Cosmic-Communion – and for others – it is the path to further delusion and entrapment.

Together, the Libra-Pisces dynamic has been making us examine how our Relationships bring us to Spiritual Truth or Deception …
and how our Spiritual Journeys bring us to the Relationships we encounter, for better or worse. As Jupiter is involved, sometimes the Other in question is a Teacher or Authority Figure.

Between April 21 – June 9, Jupiter will be in Retrograde, bringing some of the brunt of these questions bubbling up as resentments, or simply deep seated tension within the psyche. It may also mean a stronger impetus to address relationship karma and its origins. From June 9th onwards, Jupiter will begin to move direct. This allows more of this questioning energy to be rendered in visible form. You may also feel a sense of decompression at this time as things begin to move – as they need to.

June 16 sees Neptune beginning its retrograde in Pisces. This will be a time for sharp adjustments as the veils dissolve and the bubbles burst. Focusing on lower-chakra work and making the effort to stay embodied, discerning and present to your spiritual experiences will make all the difference in the world. And it´s good general practice.

Between May 25 – May 29, Mercury in Taurus will sextile Neptune and inconjunct Jupiter. This creates a Yod / Karmic Accelerant (as I see it). Look at the words and the ideas that you use to create the material reality you inhabit. Unless you are without form, the logic of the 3D world is still part and parcel of your spiritual experience. Bring your questions surrounding spiritual work and relationship dynamics to the material here-and-now.

Is it practical?
Is it stable?
Is it unsafe?
Is it stagnant?
Is it rewarding?

and so on…

Between June 16 – 22, Venus in Taurus will complete the circuit. You´ll be asked to bring these questions home – yet again – to your relationships, collaborations and financial arrangements.

Those of you with natal placements near 13-14 Taurus and/or Leo will be experiencing this as a Yod in any case.

(2) North Node inconjunct Chiron (May 6 – June 26)

The (Mean) North Node, just as it had shifted out of Virgo and into Leo, began making an inconjunct aspect to Chiron in Pisces.

The North Node in Leo asks us to look at how we express our creative, playful, authentic, expressive natures and sense of being in the world. It´s about falling in love with yourself and all-that-is. It´s about artistic and dramatic expression, inspiration and motivational leadership – and it´s about children and joy. And equally about the pain and vulnerability that arises when these energies are not allowed to shine for what they are.

Chiron in Pisces examines the archetype and associated paradigm of the wounded healer. It asks us to really question the healing process and how much of it arises through pain. It asks whether our attachment (or familiarity) with pain (you might even call it habituated comfort) inhibits our healing. It explores the gifts and vulnerabilities that empathy and compassion bring to the fore.

It is equally the energy that draws out the narcissistic or predatory type of energy that feels itself hollow, empty and disconnected (and often this is the same energy that pretends to be its very opposite). I suspect the intensity with which we – as a collective – now focus on the empath-narcissist dynamic emerged through this transit, beginning in 2010.

Put together, the inconjunct asks us to examine our sense of spiritual woundedness and/or gifts of healing we have access to – and how these either exacerbate or heal the wounds of the inner child, sexual trauma, romantic disconnection, a lack of warmth or inner joy, etc. The Leo-Pisces connection draws out a lot more visceral pain as both signs go to very deep, intimate and tender aspects of the psyche.

Questions that may arise:

Why does what you love harm you?
Why does what you love heal you?
Why is your ability to love linked with the need to caretake?
What would love look like without that requirement?
Where, or when, within yourself – have you made these assumptions, contracts or choices?

And so on.

Chiron begins its retrograde on June 30, shortly after this inconjunct dissolves. You´ll have some time for review thereafter. Those with placements near 27-28 Libra or Capricorn will experience the Node – Chiron inconjunct as a Yods.

Generally speaking, between now till the end of July 2017, use the energy of these alignments to navigate your way to better psychological, sexual, spiritual health.

This is an excellent time to focus on healing your relationships, both within and without – and of course – with / as / through Spirit.

At the end of the day, you are a Sovereign being with the power of Free Will.

Your reponsibility, first and foremost is to your own well-being. Then to those around you.

Otherwise you get an empty cup … and whole lotta heartbreak.

But that too, is a choice.

Blessings,

THE GEMINI NEW MOON: QUALITY OVER QUANTITY (25-26 May, 2017)

93EE9902-D0F1-464F-AEA9-131BBA0213DD - copia

Gemini´s energy is abuzz with information.

Some of it is valuable intel.

Some of it is just noise.

There´s a lot of data seeking to swamp our psychic and intellectual receptors at this time. The tendency for many will be to try and spill over into as many fields of inquiry, questions, thoughts, ideas as possible. Which can be a fertile ground for the genesis of genius … or simply a massive exercise in distraction.

In the buildup to this New Moon, the Moon (just exiting Taurus at 28 degrees) squared the North Node in Leo and South Node in Aquarius. That in itself brought up deep questions of what makes a person feel secure? grounded? rooted? be it in parent-child relationships, friendships, romantic affairs, and so on. It makes us question how we define, express and seek security in the world – and that can be uncomfortable for some (or deeply validating for others – we´re all different.

Shortly thereafter, Venus (19 Aries) squared Pluto (19 Capricorn). This would have brought many personal and professional relationships to the boil – or the breaking point for some.

It´s a powerfully intense, creative energy that gives you the chance to assert who You are, what Your Truth Is … and how much of that is linked with Self-Love.

Control dynamics, especially with those older or more senior than you (or who project themselves to be) will be more clearly revealed. Ideally, this is an energy through which the Self turns to the question of what Legacy it seeks to leave behind – and How. Do you barge your way through? Do you honor the other person´s space and will? Do you cut the chain of dependency and walk the other way?

Depends entirely on your situation. Remember that Free Will is the key, as is your Choice to embody Self-Love .. or not.

This dynamic is intensified by the fact that Pallas Athena (she who brings strategy and wisdom) is conjunct Venus at 19 Aries. Juno (sho who awakens the Soul, through pleasure, pain or both) conjuncts Pluto at 17 Capricorn.

For relationships happy in riding the wave of intensity, it´ll certainly open up some steamy opportunities for sexual energy and/or other forms of deeply rewarding creative expression. This can be expressed through changes in finances, salary, valuations, etc.

I would not be surprised if changes in legislation surrounding issues such as marriage, sexual freedoms (especially for women), provisions for the elderly, etc. also came to the fore.

With the Moon´s activation of the Nodes and Venus squared Pluto in the backdrop, the actual Gemini New Moon itself feels somewhat overshadowed.

Let´s not forget the Grand Fire Trine with Saturn, the Galactic Center, Eris and the North Node ( http://wp.me/p4OUNS-1Yn ) is also at play – amongst other things.

What I´ve also noticed is the desire of the mind to seek data / information (irrespective of its value) to ´fill space´. Wouldn´t advise that necessarily, but rather would suggest a more focused search to your inquiries.

Whatever comes up for you (and a great deal can, given these astrological backdrops) – take a breath.

No matter how complex life seems, sometimes the most powerful solutions are the simplest (which is not the same as the easiest).

For many, the solutions tend to lie in a greater need to address the lower-chakras and the degree to which they are honored and embodied.

Whilst Gemini´s energies deal with the breath, the throat, the formation of duality (and mind) – they still need to emerge from a stable base (form) of some kind – at least within the context of a person.

Listen to your inner voice and pull your energies inwards, so that you reach that quiet space. Grounding (be it sitting under a tree, using smoky quartz, etc.) and deep breathing will be of benefit to still the chatter of the mind at this time. And then some useful work can get done.

Otherwise, pick an activity that you´re not overly invested in – be it knitting, doing a crossword and expend some of that excess mental energy that way – you´ll still be processing through your stuff in the background in any case.

Stay hydrated and try to get decent amounts of sleep.

Lavender and Frankincense essential oils come to mind (always do your research before using them).

The lepidolite gemstone can also be greatly beneficial in journeying through the mental chatter.

From this space of inner calm and stillness, then begin to go deeper and farther. The messages you give and receive will have far more depth. You´ll see them come to fruition around the Gemini Full Moon (December 3, 2017).

The Gemini New Moon goes exact at 19:44 pm, May 25th 2017 UTC time at 4´ 46 degrees.

Blessings to All,

HARNESSING THE POWER OF THE GRAND FIRE TRINE: THE CALL OF THE TIMES

converted PNM file

Saturn, Uranus and the North Node form a Grand Fire Trine. The energy of this alignment is highly potent and encourages the focused, aligned use of creative, passionate energy in a directed form.

Uranus encourages you to align with that inner, vital spark of being that asks you to burst forth with the New You – whom you have been working so hard to realize.

Saturn Retrograde (close to the Galactic Center) asks you to listen to the path or paradigm or teacher whose work you feel brings you to Truth.

The North Node asks you to consider which form of artistic, passionate, performative or inspirational being brings you to life (and all those who witness you).

Now there are wonderful ways in which these titanic energies can be engaged and used to create beauty. The most important lesson is to know how to ground or anchor the incredible forces at play within the Body-As-A-Vessel.

Some of us have been undergoing physical shifts and recalibrations (myself included). This is part of the natural process of aligning the physical with the other subtle bodies and the frequencies they now generate at. It´s not always a comfortable process, and you can´t rush it.

Listen to what your body needs.

Sometimes the profound act of creation you need to be investing your time in is …. yourself.

Literally, in the blood and breath and bones that houses the Consciousness (or Spirit) of You. If this is your process, honor it and focus on Creation Within.

Now …

There are of course ways to use this energy in ways that are harmful to self and others. Manchester was a clear example of that. There are simply no words for it.

The fact the target was a concert filled with children and teenagers is just … well .. heartbreaking. It also screams Leo. Those who pray for the collective, please send your energies to where they are needed.

It does hearten me (and many others) to see the solidarity vigil that emerged shortly after the incident. Remember that the South Node is in Aquarius, and that now – more than ever – we are called to band together with our Soul Tribes to stand for the Truths and Ideas that bring us to Collective Awakening.

Fly the flag of peace, especially in the face of those who would see it ripped to shreds. That is, beyond extreme hedonism, apathy or narcissism – the only decent response to the world as is.

Take care of yourselves and listen to your bodies.

This is a long-standing Grand Fire Trine that will only really subside in October 2017. It is particularly strong right now owing to the proximity of Saturn to the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius) and the 2nd exact Saturn-Uranus trine (May 18).

And, as always

Keep the faith.

MAY 13- MAY 22, 2017: BLACK MOON LILITH CONJUNCT ANTARES ( @ 10 SAGITTARIUS)

brokenhand

Black Moon Lilith will be closely conjunct Fixed Star Antares (10 Sagittarius) for the next week. BML moves to 11 Sagittarius on May 22nd, 2017.

This can mean any number of things.

Quoting Corrine Lane (astrolibrary.org) ” Antares is one of the four Royal Stars of Persia, and the one star who’s challenge it is “to avoid obsession.” Antares bestows courage. Those blessed with this star can undertake challenges that others would never consider. They fixate on a goal and never, ever, give up.”

It is also known as the Heart of the Scorpion. In Hindu astrology, it corresponds to nakshatara Jyestha. (Source: Constellations of Words)

Jyestha was the other sister of Lakshmi, basically the umbrella category for all things seen as being ´unwholesome´ in women. The idea of Lakshmi in herself is already the product of an extremely male paradigm of what a woman ought to and ought not to be. Despite her wisdom as ´The Eldest´ Jyestha is still relegated to the outskirts, and there she lies forgotten (Link: http://wp.me/p4OUNS-1dA )

This latter connection resonates strongly with the essence of Black Moon Lilith – the Feminine who is disacknowledged and whose wisdom and perspective (Sagittarius) is denied or seen as illegitimate.

Sometimes this is due to the misogyny inherent in patriarchy – and sometimes it´s not. To claim that the feminine cannot commit its own variant of evil, or to find its own type of imbalance is … problematic.

In other words …

We are human, fuck-ups will happen either way.

The gender you embody or the path you claim to follow on the surface does not immediately tell you whether you are propagating patriarchal ideals or not.

Now in my own journey – I´ve met some wonderful male teachers … and some utterly terrible female ones. . . . (and vice versa).

And NO. I´m not going to justify spiritualists who cause harm due to their lack of knowledge or experience with the idea that – all lessons, pleasurable or painful, are teachings. They are – but that´s the same reason why I would vet a professional doctor, healer, therapist before having a session with them. I doubt you would want to let a surgeon who never attended medical school to work on your body (same argument).

In other words …

Spiritualists do not get to get away with half-assed work just because a bad teacher can give you a good lesson…

But, back to topic …

Now in my own journey – I´ve met some wonderful male teachers … and some utterly terrible female ones. . . . (and vice versa). Some beautifully divine teachings of the Feminine have come from those who do not identify with the term or see the Divine as having a Gender of any kind. And some teachings which have certainly shown me – early on – how one who wears the costume, makeup and headdress of the Goddess – may not be serving Her – at all ….

So yeah …

Be discerning.

You may also want to revisit ego-conflicts in student-teacher relationships. That is related to the above discussion.

But sometimes it just arises from a sense of lack – of an insecurity that has to do with one´s sense of inner knowing (that then gets projected on the other).

Bear in mind – that there is no one Path of Wisdom that is absolute, so competition is truly something that does not need to be.

There is however, a Path of Teaching that comes from the Ego – and one that does not. It will differ for each person, but know what you seek and which energetic center / frequency you wish it to come from.

Some of you will see the Paths that lead you to Truth as Ego-ic ones, when they may not be (and vice-versa)… It´s not an easy call to make, especially within this energetic climate.

It is best to be as conscious as you can about the parts of yourself that are seeking wisdom and wanting recognition for it at this time. Otherwise they become less easy to manage when triggered, i.e. when you begin to act out your sub-conscious responses to that perceived lack.

Use the energy inside of you that feels unacknowledged, unrecognized and get out there and speak your truth. Explore the Feminine traditions and their inherent Darkness (not Evil, that´s a different thing). Be brave and centered as you expand the field of what constitutes ´legitimate´ methods of knowing and/or spiritual experience.

A word of caution: In your quest to discover the Forgotten Goddess and her wisdom, stay discerning. Not all that is Dark is necessarily Sacred. (Link: http://wp.me/p4OUNS-1mo )

As so many of you will want to put forth your wisdom into the world – a few general reminders may be of use to you.

You cannot control how your words will be taken on the best of days, so aim to speak from the Heart. At times it will comfort and at other times, it shall be detached. Love comes in many forms.

Part of Love also involves recognizing Free Will. Your advice or perspective may simply not be welcomed. And that is fine as well. People have the right to choose with what or whom they engage with.

Remember that all that you do and are is witnessed by the Universe. Always. The validation you seek (if at all), is already there for you – straight from Source.

Heads Up.

5,000 FB FRIEND LIMIT REACHED: NICE TIMING, UNIVERSE

 

 

In the grand scheme of things, this is just a number and FB is just … a virtual platform – and this isn´t something to get too hung up about. But it´s a good milestone and I love the timing that it has come at (what with the Grand Fire Trine in the skies with Saturn, Uranus, the North Node, Eris, Mercury and co – and the Cappy Moon of course).

It also celebrates an … incredible amount of time, effort and personal development that I have invested in myself, my path and my work (there´s that North Node in Aries, 10th house talking) over the past 4 years.

I welcome all those who are new into my space and urge you to see this introductory video if you want a heads up.

** Gonna celebrate with the family, we´ve got multiple reasons to today – then back to work 😀 **

GRAND FIRE TRINE (13-14 May 2017): WHAT WILL YOU CREATE?

720px-Supernova_Companion_Star

We´re taking the heat, right on the heels of the Scorpio Full Moon. The North Node (29 Leo) trines The Moon – Saturn – Galactic Center (25-27 Sagittarius) and Uranus – Mercury (26-28 Aries). If you´ve been wondering why things have been ramping up over the past day …. this is why.

This Grand Fire Trine is a powerful combination, one that is incredibly inspirational, creative, passionate … and explosive.

You will feel the stirrings from deep within at this time:

 

  • To be truer to yourself and embody your essence with authenticity

  • To (re) discover what makes you tick, i.e. your passions in life (be it a hobby, person, activity, etc.)

  • To express the creative energies of your inner child and its desire for play and freedom

  • To set forth on a journey of greater independence, learning and discovery

Now all these things are wonderful.

But if your channels are not open, if you are not grounded – the same energy can take these impulses and manifest them in the opposite form.

It is wise to exercise greater caution at this time (in the physical sense) and to know that some individuals are going to be highly volatile (i.e. easily triggered).

Whatever comes your way, remember to stay in your center and to anchor yourself in the Knowing of Who You Are. What others think of you is … immaterial. Follow your own feet, without forgetting the basic of principles of justice and social responsibility.

Your body may feel extra energy at this time and it is useful to channel it into physical activities (where possible). Take this energy of creation and use it to bring life to projects, activities or parts of your self that have lain dormant.

Set an intention to harness the abundance of Fire for your greatest Evolution, and that of all Others. Remember that the South Node in Aquarius opposes the North Node in Leo. This transforms a Grand Fire Trine into a Kite formation and places the focus of all this energy back at the South Node.

In other words, let this energy take you to a new level of spiritual awareness and to ignite your awakening process. You may feel the need to release yourself from paradigms and ideals that no longer work, or even friendship groups that can no longer accomodate your energy. And watch what emerges.

Explore what makes you feel vulnerable in new ways. Sometimes that requires you to let go of the safety rails, be it people who have held space for you, or concepts that have insulated you from the raw experience. And sometimes that´s too much to ask, depending on where you are in your journey at this time.

Rhodocrosite (the gemstone) and geranium (the essential oil, read up on it first before using) would be of benefit to those processing the raw wounds of trauma at this time.

A lot will arise and be unearthed from within through the energy of this transit. Be aware that the Moon will enter Capricorn at 5:37 am (14-5-2017, UTC). This will change the nature of the Trine and encourage you to think about the long-term legacy you wish to leave behind – with the inspiration you´ve just received.

The basic frame of this Fire Trine with the North Node in Leo, Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries does not fade till the 1st week of July 2017. It is unusually potent at this time owing to Mercury in Aries (which enters Taurus on May 15 in the Western Hemiphere, 16 in the East) and the Moon´s current transit through Sagittarius.

In about two days, Mercury will ask us to consolidate these drives and sparks of inspiration into a more solid, practical, grounded form.

Getting back to the present …

Some may be extra wired at this time – so I would suggest avoiding stimulants and to drink plenty of water and get a restful night´s sleep.

Pay attention as well to institutions of higher learning, religious institutions and/or speeches by public figures seen as great orators, demagogues or ´voices of the people´. You may see quite a few reactionary statements and actions made at this time – given the current state of global politics.

Those who are in alignment, on the other hand, may come forth with some truly ground-breaking ideals or messages of inspiration. See what emerges.

There´s also a huge scope for getting into ego conflicts at this time. It. Really. Is. Not. Worth. It.

Try not to jump on the triggers that present themselves and breathe and count to ten if you have to. You´ll probably find more interesting, or more important things that you may prefer to invest your energy in.

There´s just so much to be done.

I hope this provides some basic navigational guidance for this transit.

Enjoy, Create and Embody something Beautiful
The World needs It.
