January 24th!!!

Happy Saturday, my fellow dreamers.

Can you tell what today is for me?

Yes, today is my birthday!! I am 46 today. It is estimated you share your birthday with over 9 million people!! That boggles the mind doesn't it.

We had a seriously snowy day here in the Bronx. My family and I trooped out in the snow for fresh air, regardless. Tomorrow, I'm going out to extend the Birthday fun for an annual get together with another fellow January birthday friend.

In honor of my birthday, I send you my and dreams.

This is me at 5 and last year at 45 for the blog party.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. Happy Birthday to any fellow Aquarians reading this.

Aquarius Begins...

Happy Tuesday,my fellow dreamers. It is one of those cosmic days packed with celestial energy. It is the First New Moon of 2015, Aquarius and Mercury Retrograde begins today.

Let me say Happy Birthday to all my fellow Aquarians. My birthday is a few days away now.

Aquarius is frequently mistaken for a water sign. We bear the water vessel of emotions and dreams; also, We are creatures of Air:ideas, words, lyrics, poetry, imaginations. With our minds we can make our life beautiful or desolate depending on how we are feeling. We can soar in our ideas and manifest them ingenious ways. I for one, want to say, I'm not one of those oft quoted cold Aquarians who don't feel. Aquarians feel deeply. Some are better covering it up than others.

Being Air is our element, it can help us when we are feeling stressed, troubled and burdened.
* Go for a walk on a windy day. Let the wind take away all that stagnant energy.
* Listen to music.
* Write poetry.
* Write out your ideal day, month, home, job, etc.
* Carry out an often thought of idea and see it to it's end..
* Recite poetry/monologues or sing songs.
* Write out issues that are bothering you on a balloon. Go outside and let it go up in the sky.

Wear symbols of air in your hair and on your body: Musical notes, feathers, birds, butterflies, unicorns, dragons, clouds, balloons, bubbles, faeries etc

Stay light like Air, Aquarians. It is the best way to be.

Here is a great affirmation by Catherine Ponder that is perfect for New Moon energy. (Honestly, it is a great affirmation to use daily which I do.)

Have a wonderful day, my friends.
PS. Here's my thoughts on Mercury Retrograde.

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Sometimes people forget that he was a man. A man who liked to feel the sun on his skin, spend time with his family and just be. I found these pictures via Black Glamour
from a June 1967 Ebony picture spread. These pictures were too beautiful not to share especially on this day.

Clear away Negativity Bath

Happy Friday, my friends. Weekly, I like to take a special bath to clear away all the extra energy and negativity that I may have encountered during the week. I do have Sensitive skin, this still works for me. As always, allow your intuition to guide you on what to use.

Warm to hot water
A handful of Rose petals
A handful of Chamomile
Two splashes of Rose water or Florida Water
A liberal sprinkling of Nutmeg

Throw all those goodies in the tub then come on in. I soak in that for about 3-5 minutes. Then let the water out and depending on how I feel put in a bit more nutmeg or flowers. Fill it back up
with the warm water and soak for as long as needed.

When I'm done, I come out feeling all fresh and new. As I would say, My chakras aligned and my energy clear.

Have a great weekend, my friends.
PS Nutmeg is great for good luck, prosperity, protection, clearing away old energy.

If Freedom was a Horse....

Personal Freedom is important to me. The room to be me and to go wild in my own way. The phrase if Freedom was a Horse came to me the other day.  The more responsibilities I have, I acknowledge the importance to carve out free time for myself.  I have done that more last year and continue to do so. Freedom is a well that nourishes me. Freedom doesn't mean running away to me. It means being able to express myself truthfully. You don't need to go somewhere to be free. Often times, you need to be more you in your own life.

Where do you need be more free in your life?

I'm wishing you all a wild freeing weekend.
