It's Monday, May 17th. Happy Birthday, Cynthia!
It's a '9' day, numerologically (did you finish up any pending obligations? Reach closure in a relationship?); and a 'leaf' day, biodynamically.
Oh, these lovely leaves:
Asparagus, rhubarb, comfrey, nettles, lemon balm...everything is flourishing so beautifully!
I took a walk of admiration, before spending the rest of the morning working with a lovely client.
Fortunately, the weather cooperated and we spent several hours outside.
It feels powerful to engage in energy work in the garden. I feel the Elementals in support of us, as well as various other assistants and ancestors.
After she left, I worked on leveling the ground where the new telephone pole had been installed. I moved another two sleds full of rocks, raked dirt, and finally around 8:00pm got to grass seeding. Grass is a 'leaf' - I hope they all grow!
As I worked, I thought about the phrase:
'You reap what you sow.'
Do you recognize when you are sowing something that you might not want to reap?
I realize this is pretty important for me...
especially around judgments of others.
As if to confirm this idea, I glanced up to see a dead cardinal in the flower bed.
How did he come to his demise?
What was this message?
I took him down to the Garden Temple - and though I was prepared to bury him, I got a strong 'no.'
According to Stephen Farmer, cardinals are about compassion, loving attention, and receiving intuitive guidance...as well as making a 'fresh exploration of the religion you grew up in, with your eyes and heart wide open.'
Must be a reminder to sow compassion, loving attention, and keep my eyes and heart wide open.
Thank you, sweet bird. Rest in Peace.
