Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Weddings

Weddings are such great blessings because they bring people together whom don't often get together in one place very often. Such a day we experienced yesterday as our extended family (ohana) flew in from all over the world for the wedding of Steve and Andrea.

There was a mix of Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese, and Vietnamese with a sprinkling here and there of Irish, Danish, and Swedish. It was a blessing to feel the Ancestors (in Spirit) join with us to celebrate this beautiful wedding.

Marvelous Mars--So Close To Us

We stood in awe and observed bright Mars hanging low in the Western sky. This morning I had received an email stating Mars wouldn't be this close to Earth again until the year 2016 and never in our lifetime would we observe Mars so close.

Our family felt grateful to experience such rare beauty.

What a day for the National Democratic Convention to begin.

Here is the National Geographic link to read more about this last close visit from Mars.

Uranus Is Keeping Us On Our Toes

So if someone tells you to prepare for surprise, what do you do?

After all, a surprise is.... SURPRISE! The concept of a surprise is you never would have guessed in a million years an event is happening. No matter how much you plan or think you may be prepared for the unexpected--things/stuff/events occur which are unexpected and surprising.

Such has been my life for the last several months. One by one the surprises and unexpected events have been happening. These surprises are on many different levels.

The other evening our home phone rang in the middle of the night, something which rarely happens.

All three of us awoke with a jolt as we're now wired to expect surprising, URANIAN things as part of daily life. The caller didn't leave a message and hung up. Of course, we researched the caller ID and discovered the source since we were all now wide awake.

In former times, we wouldn't have been as easily jolted since we know people from other time zones don't comprehend the time difference calling to Hawaii. Now that Uranus has been playing with us (each in a different astro aspect way), we're on our toes.

We are blessed in that miracles are holding hands with the surprises.

Blog Your Blessings Sunday--Flickr

Flickr is such a blessing for me as well as many others. This past month I've been playing catch-up and scanning old (pre-digital) photos into my Flickr account. Even though this is a time-consuming process, I'm thrilled that Flickr exists and holds many of my cherished photo memories.

Even though I'm far from finished in this process of uploading old photos, I'm feeling very blessed to have the tools of a scanner, a computer, and Flickr!

Astro Trepidation

I finally found time to look into astrological timings today for family members and upcoming events. And I must say, the astrological landscape fills me with trepidation. Knowing full well that I'm always protected by my angels and guides, I still know every embodied human gets tested. No one is exempt from challenges, no matter how lucky or protected.

Saturn has a bad rep, but I don't feel Saturn is always all out BAD! From analyzing the way Saturn operates in the lives of others--everything from astrocartography to natal aspects to transits--I see Saturn has both it's good and bad.

With all of that said, I'm looking at an upcoming travel event for myself and others with this kind of astrological set-up:

Sun conjunct Saturn in the 9th House

Pluto being t-square'd from Sun opposite Uranus

Uranus, Sun, and Pluto on the angles

Oy Vey!

The Energies Of The Leo Solar Eclipse

As I've been 'following' the astro charts of those I know with placements in Leo and Aquarius, I wanted to wait until the Solar Eclipse day was half-way through before posting today. Eclipses (so it is said) have a two-week window on each side of them, so by waiting until late in the day, I don't know what I expected to hear. Thus far, I've not heard or observed anything out-of-the-ordinary about those with placements possibly triggered by this eclipse.

None of my Leo or Aquarian guinea pigs/humans have gone bonkers or experienced anything traumatic or dramatic.

The generation of Baby Boomers with Pluto in Leo could also be impacted by this Solar Eclipse. I'm fascinated by what is happening in these intense times and how others will respond.
