“Being productive at your craft is important. Being productive in your devotion to grow as a human is essential.” Robin S. Sharma
Brush away pride
as well as fear.
Shake off self-absorption.
You are no better,
no less than others.
Everyone is hungry.
Everyone has desires.
Everyone deserves to be fed,
to be truly seen and loved.
do not absolve you from sin,
since there is no sin that binds you.
There is work to be done.
Turn emotion inside-out.
The flip-side of yearning
is a cup overflowing.
You are free to love yourself,
to love life… all of life and who you love.
Create the beautiful design of your life.
Translate love and compassion
into your daily offerings.
There is work to be done.
“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” Helen Keller
Virgo Full Moon: devotion
February 19, 2019 7:53 am PT
“Every day millions of Tamil women in southeast India wake up before dawn to create a kolam, an ephemeral ritual design made with rice flour, on the thresholds of homes, businesses and temples. This thousand-year-old ritual welcomes and honors Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and alertness, and Bhudevi, the goddess of the earth. Created by hand with great skill, artistry, and mathematical precision, the kolam disappears in a few hours, borne away by passing footsteps and hungry insects.” Feeding a Thousand Souls: Women, Ritual, and Ecology in India, An Exploration of the Kōlam by Vijaya Nagarajan
This full moon is a potent time to be grounded in practical and meaningful activities. So, if you have practical necessities to accomplish, make them meaningful. It will serve you and others in the long run. Mercury is conjunct Neptune (Pisces ruler); ideals and imagination are strong. If that’s not the case, delusion or escapism will do.
Uranus continues to move through the 29th degree of Aries until March 6. It is a volatile period of change and upheaval. Reflect on the significant changes in your life since 2011, as you are about to begin a new chapter of awakening.

There is a shift in two weeks when the Pisces New Moon conjuncts Neptune as Mercury, in the 29th degree of Pisces, stations retrograde. No doubt magic will be in the air, along with an outpouring of compassion at a rather disorienting and weird time. That’s March 5 & 6, concurrent with the Uranus ingress Taurus where it travels until 2026.

from Pema Chödrön:
“A practice you can do to help you develop more empathy and compassion. Just Like Me, helps you see that you and others are the same. Say you’re in a traffic jam. You look around at all the other drivers and think, just like me they don’t like to be in this traffic jam. Just like me they’re fuming and fussing. Or you’re walking along the street and there’s someone sitting on a sidewalk who is very distressed. You think, just like me they want to be happy. Just like me, they want to have some comfort in their life. You see your sameness.”
“My second reading has made a really big impact on me. I’m completely amazed at how accurate you are at deciphering the charts to translate it in a way that is tangible and helpful to me.” R.K.
