I'm here... sort of


I just noticed that's it's been over a month since my last post and thought I better let everyone know that I'm still here, things have just been a bit hectic... I can't believe it's been so long since I've been on blogger - where does the time go??

My Mom came for a visit which was nice since I haven't seen her in almost 10 months! The kids are still trying to adjust to school.. which has had it's ups-and-downs. My son has molars coming in and now my daughter has chicken pox (even though she's been vaccinated!)

I can't tell you how happy I am that the retrograde is over! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me.. I'm finally getting into creative mode again. I really had no idea that the retrograde was going to act like an on/off button for my artistic mood.. but it did! I swear every time I tried to pick up any sort of craft medium all I could do is just sit there with it. So.. I spent a lot time cleansing, meditating and grounding and am happy to report that my inner Muse is well rested and ready to begin again (guess that's really what the retrograde is all about, huh?)

The kids and I did a cute (quick) ritual to say Good Bye to Summer.. I think for being 5 and 6 the little ones really connected with the day (and the reason) for the ritual. We all lit a candle and said what we wanted to work on during the Autumn Months (we all picked the same goal..) and then ran around the house saying "Good Bye, Good Bye Summer.. Come Back Again Soon!"

I honestly can not believe that it's October! The veil is thinning and it's time to get working on Samhain. The other day, during one of my meditation sessions, I had a visit from a family member that had crossed over many years before I was even born. It was a little strange for me since I don't usually pick up messages from those who have passed away, but I guess since I've been working with Hecate and Persephone so closely it's to be expected. So.. I'm very eager to begin creating tools and a ritual for helping to connect with loved ones during the Samhain Sabbat.. I have to admit, it will be a first for me.

Until Next Time..
