Sun transit through Sagittarius

sun sagittarius

According to the Tropical astrology the Sun entered the constellation of Sagittarius on November 23 through December 21st. It’s key phrase is: “I Understand.”  Keywords associated with Sagittarius are:  honest, philosophical, independent, dogmatic, outgoing, blunt, optimistic. It is a fire sign and is ruled by the planet Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and expansion.

With the Sun in Sagittarius, our focus shifts from the need for an intimate connection with a person and with ourselves, to the desire to reach out to the world and connect with something larger than ourselves.  It is time to expand your mind and vision of your life and the world. If you can see it, you can make it happen. You can take your dreams and make them reality now. You’re more bold, daring, and confident, and when you merge that with the strength, power, and purpose you’ve already developed, there isn’t much that you can’t do… letting no one get in your way.

While the Sun moves through this mutable sign, we can take steps to increase our understanding and awareness of the world around us. We are more able to muster up the courage to expand our horizons and branch out into new ways of thinking. You want to have more experiences now, open yourself up to the world, and solidify your beliefs. We can gain more confidence and optimism by focusing on the “big picture” as we move away from our focus on the details of mundane existence.  Although we may be prone to overdoing our expectations, we have the opportunity to nurture our faith, hope, and vision under this influence.

This fire sign compels you to explore farther away from your habitat and homes.  You may be more spiritual, or become intensely interested in learning and devote yourself to a quest for knowledge, whether it be tangible, physical knowledge, intellectual, or spiritual.  Creativity and storytelling thrive under this sign’s influence.  You may have a hard time sticking to schedules and deadlines during this time.  Adventurous Sagittarius is asking you to take a risk and leave the familiar.  This is the sign of the archer. It loves optimism, adventure, exploration and philosophy.  It is on a quest for farther reaching answers.  So go ahead…Take chances and Make bold choices!

Scorpio New Moon

scorpio moon goddess

The New Moon is a time to go within and dance with our shadow issues in order to resolve longstanding issues.  Every new Moon will be different and each will trigger certain things in you.  Today on November 11, we greet the Scorpio new moon at 12:47 p.m.  Scorpio is a deep and intense sign. It represents all the stuck and heavy emotions and shadow issues we have.  It signifies transformation…death and rebirth, the phoenix.

It represents all things taboo…forbidden behavior…and the rejection because it seems socially unacceptable.  What is your taboo about fitting in?  Where are you trying to fit in where you have been called to stand out to find your genius?  Find your connection to your family taboo.  I grew up in a Roman Catholic church and for my mom if you do not go to church every week you are not considered spiritual and do not know God. She came from a family of well educated individuals and if you do not go to college you have wasted your life.

scorpio transformationThis sign has more then one facet and is represented by more then just the scorpion but by the eagle and the phoenix as well.  The Scorpion aspect is the transformation of secrets and desire.  All the shadow stuff.  The stinger.  When you are in this aspect you’re really “in it” and you can’t see in the dark still. The eagle aspect has the ability to fly above the Scorpion energy and sees the shadow issues.  It sees both worlds and becomes the Sacred Observer.  Because the eagle can see what’s going on from above it can pull shadow pieces out and ask “What is it about for you?”  There is a curiosity, a higher world view.  You’re not “in it” anymore.  The Phoenix aspect is the transformation by flames and rises out of the ashes.  It dies and comes back totally different.  You have been on a journey and when you come back you don’t fit in anymore and feel totally different.  This is a time of integration.  Honor the transition phase. Honor the transformation phases.  Do not judge or criticize the rebirth.

What aspect is calling you at this New Moon?  Is it the eagle, the scorpion, or the phoenix?  Which aspect can you learn from at the moment?  Which part do you want to connect to?  As you sit underneath the moonlight tonight mediate on this.

moon stagnant energyThis month you are being called to slow it down and look at what has been needing your attention.  Where have you become rigid, stubborn and unyielding? Contemplate on what needs tending to.  Ask yourself how you are being triggered.  What inner critic is still running the show? Concentrate on what needs to be transformed.  Are you a workaholic instead of an entrepreneur?  Are you in a hamster wheel never really allowing yourself to live your life?  What are your issues with reciprocity…giving and receiving?  Do you give but do not allow your self to receive or are you the one constantly taking from other people and never giving anything back?

You are being called to clean up all your junk this month… your longstanding issues, things that need attention, changes that need to be made.  Deep mucky stuff from your psyche will be coming up this month.  What are your secret emotions that you want to hide from?  How does transformation instill fear in you… because it’s a loss and scary?  And how does this fear inhibit your expression of power?  It’s time for you to surrender all your negative emotions…fear, guilt, anger, shame.  Scorpio can be a time of deep healing if you just surrender and let it go.  So what if things didn’t work out how you expected at least you did it.  Look at how it needs to be transformed for the next time.

There will be moments where the Universe will test you to see if you have the spiritual muscle to walk into the situation.  And in those moments you are being called to start as the Scorpion, Become the Eagle and Come back as the Phoenix.  Use all the powerful energy with this Scorpio new moon to shapeshift your current situation.  The choice is yours Stay as the Scorpion/the Stinger, Become the Eagle and Rise Above, or Transform and Transmute into the Phoenix?  Much love and support on your transformation.  It’s time to Phoenix Up!

Things to do Samhain

pumpkin samhain blessing

There are several things to consider doing during this time of the year.

  1. Take a meditative walk in a natural area near your home.  Experience yourself as part of the Circle of Life and reflect on death and rebirth as being an important part of Nature.
  2. Contemplate on what things have to die in your life so that other areas can live…ex:  habits, relationships, past, guilt, anger, grief, fear….  Then call forth what you want to replace it with.. self-control, positive outcome and future, love, joy, peace, etc….Meditate on it.
  3. Look for signs of death on your nature walk…. fallen leaves, fallen branches, flowers dying,etc..
  4.  You can do a genealogy research.
  5. Ancestors Altar: Gather photographs, heirlooms, and other momentos of deceased family, friends, and companion creatures.   Arrange them on a table, dresser, or other surface.
  6. Prepare a Samhain dinner.  Include a place setting at your table or nearby the altar of any deceased loved one.  Add an offering of each beverage and food being served to the extra place setting.  Invite your ancestors and other deceased loved ones who come in love to come dine with you.  After the feast, place the contents of the plate and cup outside in a natural location as an offering for your deceased loved ones.  You don’t want them to get to comfortable inside and decide to stay.
  7. Ancestor stories:  Learn about family history.  Contact one or more older relatives and ask them to share memories  of deceased family members.  Record them in some way and later write accounts of what they share.  Share what you have learned and have written with other family members and friend.  Feel free to share any of your favorite stories of the deceased loved ones as well and invite your kids and friends and family to share.
  8. Recall any of the characteristics, strengths, or attributes of your deceased loved ones that you can learn from or admire.  Go around in a circle or perform as a private meditation.
  9. Cemetery Visit:  Visit and tend the gravesite of a loved one at a cemetery.  Call to mind memories and consider ways the loved one continues to live on with you.  Place an offering of fresh flowers, dried herbs, or water.
  10. Do meditations to release the fear of death and just be at peace with it.  Envision when the time comes that it is a graceful and painless experience and you will have left this place fulfilled and happy with the life you have lived.  Where you view it as a transition into a lovely beginning of something wonderful and not just the end.
  11. Do a meditation where you try to contact a deceased loved one for guidance or to be at peace with their passing on.
  12. Divinatory Guidance:  Using Oracle cards, runes, scrying, or some other form of divination, seek and reflect on guidance for the year to come.  Write a summary of your experience and any messages received.  Select something appropriate to act upon and do it!  Give Thanks for the messages received!
  13. Sit outside and just marinate in the Samhain energy.
  14. Meditate on your positive transformation and the positive changes you can do that will promote it.  Make a list.  Look for new habits and things to do or people to hang out with.

blessed samhain quote

Samhain

Have blessed samhain

Samhain is the third and final harvest festival of nuts and seeds.  It is pronounced “Sah-win” or “sow-in”.  Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year. It is also known as “Day of the Dead” or “All Hallows Eve”.  It is celebrated from sunset on 31 October to sunset on 1 November, which is nearly halfway between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice.  Some modern pagans consider it the “witches new year”, though other traditions simply recognize Samhain as the end of the year.  It’s energy is death and transformation.  Customs include jack o’lanterns, spirit plate, ancestor altar, divination, and costumes.  The colors associated with Samhain are orange, black, and indigo.  Tools used during this holy day are votive candles, magic mirror, cauldron, pumpkins, and divination tools.

Traditionally Samhain was a time to take stock of the herds and food supplies.  Cattle were brought down to the winter pastures after six months in the higher summer pastures.  It was also the time to choose which animals would need to be slaughtered for the winter.  This custom is still observed by many who farm and raise livestock because it is when meat will keep since the freeze has come and also since the summer grass is gone and searching for provisions/food is no longer possible.  In may places, Samhain coincides with the end of the growing season.  Vegetation dies back with killing frosts, and therefore literally, death is in the air.

Rituals include bonfires, dancing, divination, healing, honoring ancestors, thanksgiving, releasing old, foreseeing future, understanding death and rebirth.  Bonfires were lit on hilltops at Samhain and there were rituals involving them.  It is believed that the fires (as well as the smoke and their ashes) were deemed to have protective and cleansing powers.  In some places boys asked for bonfire fuel from each house in the village.  When the fire was lit, one after another of the youths laid himself down on the ground as near to the fire as possible so as not to be burned, and in such a  position as to let the smoke roll over him.  The others ran through the smoke and jumped over him.  When the bonfire samhain candlesburnt down, they scattered the ashes, competing eagerly with each other who should scatter the most.  Sometimes, two bonfires would be built side by side and the people, sometimes with their livestock, would walk between them as a cleansing ritual.  The bones of slaughtered cattle were said to have been cast upon bonfires.  People also took ashes from the bonfire back to their homes.  In northern Scotland, they carried burning fir around their fields to protect them.  In some places, people doused their hearth fires on Samhain nights.  Each family then solemnly re-lit its hearth from the communal bonfire, thus bonding the families of the village together.

Samhain is seen as a good time to perform any divination as well.  The bonfires were also used in divination rituals.  A ring of stone was laid around the fire to represent each person  and everyone who ran around it with a torch.  In the morning, the stones were examined and if any was mislaid it was said that the person for whom it was set would not live out the year.  At household festivities throughout the Gaelic region and Wales, there were many rituals intended to divine the future of those gathered, especially with regard to death and marriage.

Seasonal foods such as apples and nuts were often used in these rituals.  Apples were peeled, the peel, tossed over  the shoulder, and its shape examined to see if it formed the first letter of the future spouse’s name.  Nuts were roasted on the hearth and their behavior interpreted… if the nuts stayed together, so would the couple.  Egg whites were dropped in the water, and the shapes foretold the number of future children.  Children would also chase crows and divine some of these things from the number of birds or the direction they flew.

Herbs used at this time included: Rosemary, for remembrance of our ancestors, Mullein seeds, for abundance, Mugwort to aid in divination, rue, calendula, sunflower petals and seeds, pumpkin seeds, apples and apple seeds, turnip seeds, sage, wormwood, tarragon, bay leaf, almond, hazelnut, passion flower, pine needles, nettle, garlic, and mandrake root.  Stones associated with this time are:  black obsidian, smoky quartz, jet, amber, pyrite, garnet, granite, clear quartz, marble, gold, diamond, iron, steel, ruby, hematite, and brass.  Decorations include gourds, pumpkins, apples, Autumn leaves, and nuts.

pumpkin houseSamhain is one of the original festivals behind the holiday we know as Halloween.  Some of Halloween’s most common traditions are rooted in Samhain’s harvest festival roots, such as the carving of pumpkin and bobbing for apples.  The traditional illumination for guisers or pranksters on this night in some places was provided by turnips or beets, hollowed out to act as lanterns and often carved with grotesque faces to represent spirits or goblins.  They may have also been used to protect oneself from harmful spirits.  In some places, young people dressed as the opposite gender.  In Scotland, young men went house-to-house with masked, veiled, painted, or blackened faces, often threatening to do mischief it they were not welcomed.  This was common in the 16th century in the Scottish countryside and persisted into the 20th century.  It is suggested that the blackened faces comes from using the bonfire’s ashes for protection.

Irish and Scottish immigration, which popularized Halloween in North America, had a strong tradition of disguising and pranks.  As it was believed that faeries, witches, and demons roamed the Earth on Samhain, food and drink were customarily set out to make them less hostile or angry.  later on, people began dressing up as these creatures and claiming the goodies for themselves, sometimes performing antics or tricks in exchange for food and drink.  This practice called mumming evolved into trick-or-treating, or it may have come from the custom of going door-to-door collecting food for Samhain feast or fuel for Samhain’s bonfire and/or offerings.

Samhain (like Beltane) was the time when the doorways to the Otherworld opened, allowing the spirits and the dead to come into our world and this facilitates contact and communication with the Dead.  That is when it was believed that demons, faeries, and spirits of all kind would freely roam about.  Some would perform tricks, like the spirits of those who were murdered and who were looking for revenge.  The souls of the dead were also thought to revisit their homes.  Places were set tat the dinner table or by the fire to welcome them.  Some celebrate Samhain with a ritual to guide the dead home by opening a western-facing door or window and placing a candle by the opening.  many pagans still follow this tradition to this day.

samhain AncestorsBut while Beltane is a festival for the living, Samhain is essentially, a festival for the dead.  In the simpler yet brutal times that so many early people lived in, death was commonplace, whether it was the death of livestock through disease, the extremely frequent deaths of women during childbirth, or the death of young infants from common childhood illness.  There was always a lot of deaths going on in a given year.  Samhain was a time to really sit down around the fireplace, connect with your surviving loved ones, and pay tribute to those beloved members of your “tribe” whom you lost over the past year.  For some, Samhain is when we honor ancestors who came before us.

It’s easier to talk to the dead, have lucid dreams in which you connect with the dead, and to spiritually commune with those who have passed during Samhain.  The connection or “veil” between the physical world and the spiritual dimensions is thinner, which makes this type pf psychic contact much easier.  The only other time when this is easy are the three days after someone dies, because for three days their spirit is still hanging out on the earth plane and they will often have a lot to say if you can sit down and get past your own grief and “listen” to them.  For those who have lost loved ones in the past year, Samhain rituals can be an opportunity to bring closure to grieving and to further adjust to their being in the Otherworld by spiritually communing with them.  This is the perfect time to celebrate their memory.  Hopefully, they will communicate back with you to offer any advice or guidance.

You could find yourself remembering people you have had major relationships with.  Relationships which have ended, even if that person didn’t actually die.  maybe the relationship “died” and you’re still processing the emotions related to the experience.  You could be going back and forth emotionally, feeling love for the person one minute and anger the next.  Try to center yourself, connect with “Great Spirit” or your “Infinite, Eternal Self”, or loving the energy of the Universe and reach a place of emotional equilibrium.  Let go of hatred, release fear, and try to expel the toxic energy of anger and grief from your system as best as you can.  Some words to meditate include: remember, appreciate, love, release, transform, and transmute.

Sun Transit through Scorpio

scorpio sun

The Sun will make it’s transit through the Scorpio constellation from October 23rd till November 21st, according to the Tropical astrology.  The guiding principle of Scorpio is “I desire”.  Scorpio is the sign of depth, intimacy, and extremes of feelings.  Scorpio is penetrating, transformative and unstoppable.  Mediocrity does not satisfy neither.  Scorpio’s energy is provocative, usually in a quiet, as well as passionate, strong-willed and intense way.  It can be an immensely healing and transformative energy.

In Libra, we strive for equality and fairness.  In Scorpio, however, instinctively believes that life simply isn’t fair.  Jealousy, secrecy, beating a dead horse, and manipulation are some of the more negative expressions of Scorpio.  Scorpio can be rigid, stubborn, and have an unyielding point of view.

Scorpio represents the toxic waters.  All of that suppressed stuff and emotions we shove away deeply that we don’t want to deal with.  Scorpio’s energy is not only represented by the scorpion but also by the phoenix, death and rebirth through dismemberment and remembering.  It’s time to look deeper, shine a light into the shadows and transform one another with truth.

scorpio scorpionHalloween takes place under the influence of Scorpio and that’s no coincidence.  We all adopt the scorpion’s intensity during this time.  As the days grow shorter and Autumn fades into winter in the Northern hemisphere, the natural world begins to decay–a reminder of our own mortality that awakens our curiosity about the meaning of life and its many realms.

Scorpio energy brings intensity and mystery.  You may be drawn to searching the darkest regions of the Universe to bring all the hidden mystical and mysterious knowledge into the bright light of the day.  This energy has a magnetic pull at this time of the year– all you have to do is tune into it.

The sign Scorpio brings highly perceptual psychic abilities.  Scorpio’s energy is good for cutting through the “BS” and getting to look at things for what they really are. Superficially simply will not do with the Sun in Scorpio.  We have the desire to get to the bottom of matters.  All that is hidden, taboo, secret, or suppressed, interests us, because normally it is considered socially unacceptable or that you may be rejected by a type of behavior.

scorpio risenYou should be able to utilize some key motivators centered on ambition while Scorpio rules.  Position and power may be yours for the taking if you shoot for the stars.  If you really set your mind on what you want and passionately commit to your endeavors, you’ll be supported.  It’s about believing in yourself and knowing you are capable of greatness.

One of Scorpio’s symbol is the Eagle,  which represents intelligence and clear visions, so you may want to pay attention to your “visions” or dreams this month.  Keeping a dream journal may be enlightening, especially if you’re looking for some specific answers.    Visions don’t necessarily have to occur at night, you can also get sudden flashes of insight during your waking hours, if you’re looking for them.

Scorpio’s energy is passionate, dynamic, and observant.  You may find that this vibration seeps into your bones and makes you feel more powerful then any other time of the year.  There are lessons to be learned on how to live your life the rest of the year.  Use the time while the Sun is in Scorpio to access your sensual side.  This isn’t necessarily about sex, but rather experiencing the sensuous feelings that mean you’re truly alive.  Turn everything you do into an opportunity to be passionate and intense about life.

Summer Solstice

 

stonehege

The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year and the shortest night. During the Summer Solstice the energies of light briefly overcome the energies of darkness and the power of the Sun is at its full force.  It marks the beginning of Summer.  For centuries our planet’s movement around the Sun has been observed and celebrated.  Here we celebrate the completion of the cycle that began at the Winter Solstice.  The Summer Solstice is a doorway of the second half of the year, energizing the paths that lead within.

For some pagans this marks the marriage of the God and Goddess and their union as the force that creates the harvest fruits.  This is seen as a very joyous occasion  because by this time the ground had thawed out, warm temperatures had returned, flowers are blooming and the leaves have returned… signs of abundance can be seen everywhere.  Summer is seen as a time of rapid growth, fruitfulness, and abundant awareness.

But the Summer Solstice also holds a much greater spiritual significance.  The Sun has always been symbolic of the highest divinity.  The Summer Solstice represents our Spirit’s ascension to the Divine, the reunion of Self with the Divinity.  The light of the soul shines its brightest over the darkness of the shadow.sun inthe woods

This is the time of enlightment.  The Summer Solstice is an ideal time for you to let go of your ego and old patterns of suppression and focus on what you desire to bring into your life.  It is a portal opening of energy that overwhelms obstruction, blockages, and ego.  This is a time of strength, accomplishment, and achievement.

Before Christianity, Midsummer was thought to be one of the times in the year where magick was the strongest.  It is considered a good night to perform rituals that could change the future.  Midsummer is a supercharged time physically and emotionally, which makes it ideal for making resolutions to:  kickstart new habits, strengthen human relationships, and let go of negativity.  Now is the time to create daily habits that will be hardwired into lifestyle changes that will keep your spirits afloat as the days become shorter.

fire spellThis is a good time for all types of healing work, for setting intentions and resolutions, for doing affirmations or visualizations, for doing artistic work, for making love and connecting with your partner at a deeper, more spiritual level, and for connecting with the various “kind beings of the universe” — your spiritual helpers, power animals, higher power, and so on. The sun at this time is just moving into the Water sign of Cancer. Cancer is a very psychic, sweet, empathetic and sensitive sign, so you’ll feel these influences come in.  Some evocative and powerful words to think about or concepts to meditate on include: hope, transformation, transfiguration, release, ecstasy, and resolution.

Globally, a wide range of rituals for the Summer Solstice which focus on the themes of fulfillment, enlightment, abundance, sharing, and the joy of living on this beautiful Earth.  Ceremonies are also performed regarding community, career, relationships, Nature communion, and planetary wellness.  Most common Summer Solstice themes tend to revolve around warding off negative spirits, protection, marriage, and fertility.

handfastingAncient cultures around the world have celebrated the Summer Solstice by making bonfires, as Fire represents Summer, the Sun, and heat.  The Sun is the giver of life.  Thus, certain cultures have associated the Summer Solstice with fertility and is believed to be a good time to get married.  Celebrations of feasting, dancing, and singing were held.  Yellow and orange flowers are used in decorations and activities.  You can use the flowers to make a floral wreath, a sun wheel, or a mandala.  St. John’s Wort was often picked and thrown onto the fire.  People usually leapt through bonfires, considered to bring good luck.  The bonfires were also believed to ward off negative spirits.  Protection amulets were made and charged under the Sun on the Summer Solstice to charge and heighten its power.  People would gather to see the Sunrise.

Ironically, while summer is just hitting its stride, the Earth is already turning towards the dark season as the nights begin to lengthen and the days will shorten from this point on, until after the Winter Solstice.

So where as in May we celebrated and honored the mother energy, in June, we celebrate and honor the father energy.  This is seen as the Father Sky or the Yang symbol in the Chinese symbol.  It’s the Active force in life.  It’s characterized as hard, fast, focused, and aggressive.  This energy comes in handy when we need to push through things, shine light on the dark, transform heaviness into lightness.  It’s the go-getter attitude, filling us up with passion, enthusiasm, and motivation to move and do!

Sun transit through Gemini

sun in gemini

According to the Tropical astrology the sign Gemini is exalted from May 21st through June 21st. Gemini’s key phrase is “I think”. It is an air sign, occurring at the end of the season making it mutable.   A mutable sign occurs at the end of the season as the energies begin to shift into the new season making them more adaptable, sharp, resourceful, and flexible.   Gemini is the “quick communicator”.    Gemini’s key words are:  clever, versatile, inquisitive, charming, mental, witty, restless, adaptable, sociable, expressive, and fun.  It’s ruing planet is Mercury.

Gemini is a curious and intellectual sign.  Knowledge and diversity motivate us with the Sun in Gemini. We are more sociable, intellectual, and insatiably curious under this influence. People take up interests that spark new ideas.  It encourages reading and studying.  Attitudes become inquisitive, clever, interested in “novelty”, and are willing to try something new just for the heck of it. We are more open to talking things over and sharing new ideas during this time.  Communication of all sorts seems to become effortless, instinctive, and enjoyable.  Gemini energy turns our attention to social networking, recovering friendships, and becoming extroverted.

Air signs are communicative and intellectual.  They like to weigh their options out and reason things out.  Gemini’s planetary ruler Mercury rules the mental body, style of thinking and all sorts of communication, including computers and telephones.  It influences our thoughts, connections, writing, and logic.  Mercury also has an effect on the nervous system.

Gemini constantly curates new ideas so existing facts can be compared and, if necessary, tossed aside. You may need an update in your ideas and this might become challenged by someone else’s opinion.  The trick is to not get upset because Gemini’s duality insists that there are two sides to every story, and no truth is sacred (for now).  It brings a keen skepticism motivated by our need to know the truth.  Use this energy to create new friendships, and open ourselves to truthful relationships and connections with the people in our lives now.  Learn to respect other people’s ways and points of view.

The shadow side to this energy is that we can become restless and scatter our energies around to a multiple things as a result of our curiosity and awareness of all of our options. We are more communicative and versatile, but we can also be unreliable.  Watch for idle gossip. Gemini is also known for quick and cutting wit, so be careful about speaking too quickly or making offhand remarks that hurt someone’s feelings. Watch out or becoming close-minded, opinionated, and nervous, ad your ideas becoming too scattered or insincere.   Also beware of saying one thing but then doing another…be mindful of that in people as well.  Hyperactive Twins sometimes overthink and over-analyze things to the point of anxiety, and you might find yourself doing the same while the Sun’s in Gemini.  If so, try a relaxing activity that will get you out of your head, such as exercising, watching silly TV programs or just keeping your hands and body busy.  You might find it hard to concentrate on one thing because of all the chatter going on this month from everybody.

Overall, enjoy this lighthearted time.  This is the time to speak your truth.  Use this time to strengthen your capabilities and to express and communicate who you really are.  Explore and express your own opinions rather then relying on what others suggest you think. Gemini’s influence grants us some much needed flexibility and a playful realistic attitude about ourselves.
