There are no rules for creating these kinds of ceremonies for yourself. You can co-create whatever you want with Spirit using anything that comes to mind. What matters most is the intention behind what you’re doing. So candle and herbs and long black nails or not - use compassion, kindness, and consciousness when calling new energy into your life and others. The energy behind what you’re doing matters more than the actions themselves and that applies to all of your life, not just the magic you’re doing.Read More

Have you been taking things a little too seriously? With so many planets and the sun in Virgo right now, you may need to proceed with caution at the moment as to the seriousness you apply to relationships, conversations, missteps, and mistakes, as well as the self-talk you have going on inside of your head right. I’m not saying that our choices, actions, and behaviors don’t hold importance. I’m just saying, maybe put down your torch and go find a swing set for today. Even if it’s just for a few minutes. I was in the Dollar Tree the other day and had my eye on some bubbles with a giant bubble wand. I just might have to go back and grab that for myself today.

There are a lot of different energies swirling around right now. With all this Virgo going on, we’re being called back to the Earth. But with the moon in Scorpio, you might find it difficult today to keep your focus. Trying scheduling a few tasks for yourself today that have a realistic, defined beginning and end. This will leave you with a sense of accomplishment and movement while so many other things feel like they are up in the air. It is how you direct your energy in these moments that matter most, not what’s going around you. This is a time to refine your focus. To get clear on where your priorities are for yourself and your vision. Our personal power, independence, and freedom is strengthening. Don’t be scared - this is what you asked for. Practice today with loving-kindness - for yourself and others.

There is a unique piece of who you are that is asking to come out and play right now. It’s almost as if the last 8 months the piece of yourself you had long ago discarded or shamed has been in the process of integrating back into your self and now. You are here. The whole self is reunited. But this process has caused some stirrings around you and within you, you feel new. So there is some trepidation. Some uncertainty. Some fear. You have permission to let that go and allow yourself to be whole and present and awake right now. All things will smoothe out over time and you will begin to feel stronger and clearer within yourself. You will learn to trust your path more. Be patient with this process. There’s nothing wrong here, you just have some sea legs you need to walk off. You got this. Stand up tall - heart full.

There’s a craving your soul has. Places you’ve been feeling called to venture to. Feelings you’ve been wanting to explore or understand more. Areas of study calling to you. Where are you being called to journey to? What has interest and curiousity? Spend some time writing today on the things you’re feeling intrigued by. Let your mind explore the questions you have. Explore your thoughts today for the sake of exploration. Without needing to come to a conclusion, or take any action. Daydream about possibilities. Wonder about what ifs in ways that make your life feel more expansive and exciting. What would feel really good to you? What sounds fun for your life? What is your heart open to?

You’re in the process of creating new ways of doing things. Perhaps you’re aware that some of your thought processes or behaviors are no longer serving you. That the way things have been done in your family, in your household, out in the world - are no longer working. You are forging a new path, a new way. It’s possible only you can see what is unfolding in front of you right now. Others around you may not understand. Things may not appear clear from an external perspective. But this is not about other people. This is about you and what you see for yourself. What you feel called to. Are you listening? Are you trusting? Are you letting go in the places that aren’t flowing with ease? Release your control, follow your intuitive guidance, and learn to trust yourself in this new. Learn to trust Spirit in this new way.

There are some very specific ways the world needs you right now. We each have our own role to fill. How are you being called to step up and lead? How will you hold that crown upon your head? What is the intention you’re holding for those in your presence? It’s time to start treating yourself like the royalty you are. You are the only one who can do this. You are the only one who can step up your self-respect-game. You are the only one can navigate this journey for yourself. The world needs you and what you bring to the table. Whether you’re loving yourself, your people at home or work, or those out in the world around you - show up. Bring the love. Bring your big, bright, beautiful self to the party.

What helps you feel rested and nourished? What fills your cup back up? What restores you spiritually? Today you are invited to dive into the realm of restoration. Can you take a nap or sleep in? Is it time for a long energy cleansing shower or an Epsom salt soak? Maybe dive into a book or your journal or go for a hike outside. If you haven’t already, start making a list on your phone, in your planner or journal of all the activities that fill you back up. That way, the next time you feel depleted, you can go to your list and choose from your growing selection of activities and interests bring restoration to you. I know a lot of times when we are in that space of depletion we forget what makes us feel better. Consider this list one of the things in your spiritual toolbox.
Our trip to Big Rocks Park in Glen Rose, Texas came at the end of an emotionally thick week. That Tuesday had been the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn. Emotions were flowing and lots of things that had been lying dormant were rising to the surface both individually and in ways that overlapped with the three of us, thanks to Mercury Retrograde.
Brawn’s truck had been in the shop (and still is). Us all being home together for the majority of the time over the span of the week and a new schedule brought different challenges. We were all doing the best we could, but our feelings were powerful and on the rise. Perhaps an overflowing was occurring to aid in releasing what no longer fit into who it is we are becoming. A purging of sorts.
After back and forthing all week on whether or not the mini-road trip would happen, Thursday night we made a plan and Friday morning we were out the door. An hour later than what we intended. But we made it happen nonetheless.
Water, trees, fresh air, new scenery - I had been craving it all since the last Total Solar Eclipse New Moon earlier in the month. Nature heals.
Visiting Big Rocks Park in Glen Rose was like stepping into a minature version of Austin’s backyard with the Green Belt and all its various swimming holes - but closer to home and with far less people.
We totally winged this trip in true Megan-fashion. Some items that would have made our experience more enjoyable would have been hats, sunscreen, floats, a life jacket for Sawyer, water shoes, chairs to sit in the water, an earlier arrival times, and a cooler with drinks and snacks. All in all we only stayed for about an hour before we decide to trek home.
Our trip did indeed end with some screaming on all of our parts. Sawyer was wanting for a float so badly, when his eye met the loaner life jacket rack near the exit (and the main road) he made a b-line to grab one for himself, not listening to us as we called him back to the water. Seeing your almost seven-year-old bolt towards a busy road when you’re in the water and at a distance from him is jolting, to say the least.
Once Brawn caught up to him, we sat near the picnic tables, went to the restroom, argued with Sawyer for a bit, he cried and then we left.
This wild boy-soul in such a tiny body has always had a mind of his own. I know it’s not just our kid who makes his own rules and breaks all the boundaries, but it sure does make me curious how he’s going to use this powerful energy of his as he gets older. Most of the time I feel at odds with how to approach being the parent he needs me to be.
I always feel grateful when the moments of listening, understanding, and hugs roll back around. This kid and I have a special kind of relationship. We trigger each other, hard and love each other even harder.
I have a feeling we’ll be visiting Big Rocks Park again soon enough. I’d love to go back when we have more time to explore together with the proper supplies. I would have felt a lot safer if Sawyer had an appropriate life jacket. There were many places where the water was only ankle-high, but it is a river and there are places where the current takes over. Even if the water level is still shallow.
With water shoes, it would allow us to walk more freely on the rocks, in the water and out. This Texas heat makes the ground super hot. Some of the rocks are slippery or sharp. Water shoes are the way to go. Or so I observed from the other Big Rock Park-goers around me.
There were moments of this trip where I got the serene letting go I had envisioned. Sitting in the water as it flowed around and past my body. Tadpoles swimming beside me. The cool water against me, hot sun above. Sawyer’s laughter. Brawn’s smiles. Deep breathes. Though there were trying and unsettling moments, and the overall trip was brief - I’m glad we had a go of it anyways.
The highs, the lows. I’ll take it all. #HumanExperience
