I was so happy to receive your letter! I’m so happy you are having fun in Bahia. I can’t wait until we get to join you there in a couple weeks. Your pictures look amazing.
I want to tell you that I felt like Deja Vu when I saw your post about communication, because I had some very strong experiences around communication over the last couple of days. I was leading a group of people the other day, and there was some music involved, and I found myself feeling a little bit annoyed by the interplay of two drums. They felt a little bit out of alignment with each other, and this disturbed me and pulled my attention.
And so I asked for only one drum to be played and explained all the reasons, but I did so with from the vibration of irritation that I was experiencing. Of course, my irritation came out with my words, and caused a disturbing energy in the group. I could feel the ripples of the energy affecting the group and the music.
So a friend of mine helped me by pointing this out, and I saw how I could pause for a moment to reconnect with feelings of peace and harmony before speaking, and then deliver these higher vibrations along with the literal request. And so on Sunday I sat in meditation with this concept of how our internal vibration transmits through our actions, words, facial expressions, guitar playing, virtually every thing we do transmits this. Even the way we drive!
So this was my experience over the weekend. I felt annoyed at things that ordinarily would not annoy me, and I experienced difficulty in communication because my irritation over powered the literal content of my words and yielded results that I did not desire. Then I received some very helpful consttuctive criticism from a good friend, and then on Sunday I received a good lesson about how to upgrade my communications by speaking from a space of peace and harmony.
So now my favorite part, the Astrology. I am going to right now pull out the very handy Llewellyn’s 2018 Astrological Pocket Planner that you gave me to see what was going on this weekend. And so when I look at Saturday I see that the Moon and Juno both entered Gemini on Saturday. (I don’t even know what Juno is, so there is a research project).
The second thing I see is that Pluto stationed direct on Sunday the 30th. That seems to me to be an important event.
Pluto is an interesting planet because it is so far from the sun, it takes forever to change signs. It fills me with a sense of awe that Pluto will not return to the spot it occupied when I was born during my life time. Right now it is in Capricorn, where it has been since January of 2008 and where it will remain until January of 2024. I can imagine Pluto slowly circumnavigating the sun, as our Mother Earth makes annual rotations so much faster. We go through one sign each month, and Pluto goes through one sign every 16 years. So from our perspective, Pluto has one long retrograde each year. It would seem to me that since it only moves about one degree a year, that this retrograde will go from April to September each year, gradually moving about a day each year as Pluto makes it’s orbit. (Is this correct?)
So my experience was a big build up of tension as Pluto stationed direct, and a big release of tension as Pluto finally resumed forward motion. Now that Pluto will be moving along toward Aquarius again for the next eight months or so, maybe we can all transmit some more peace and calm in our communications.
Anyway. I’m so glad you made it to Bahia. Please give me an update on the açaí situation, and please go see our friends at Cabana Da Empada and get a Suco de Cacao com Capim Santo.
Peace, Love, Foregiveness,
