Right now, astrologically speaking, the Sun is in Cancer. I know this because I googled it. And according to the Woo Woo Astro Sky Wizards, the Sun being in Cancer is likely to bring about ‘creating a home for your Soul on Earth; nurturing the light in yourself and in others’. And this little bit of magic could explain Three Lovely New Things With a Common Thread happening at the moment:
- Mr P has spent the last six months pursuing a longheld passion for Buzzing Stripy Things and has now got a spot for his very own beehive! In a few weeks he’ll transfer a bee nucleus to the beautiful cedar hive he constructed (it smells amazing) in the wildlife area of a local allotment. I am so proud of him for working his way through the local politics involved (he would make a spectacular mayor, please take note future English village we are yet to move to). Also: Ash is writing a blog all about his beek adventure.
- The pregnancy and birth of This I Know has been a vicarious part of my life for the last few years and I was a little tearful when I hugged Sus goodbye at Heathrow on Tuesday. She has popped over the pond for a month of Book Touring. Because my best mate wrote a book! I am so proud and happy for the light she is shining on the world, and I know she will be charming the pants off of America.
- I first discovered Reiki almost a decade ago when I was struck dumb with grief and no amount of ‘talking therapies’ worked. I returned to it when a relationship broke down and found a Reiki teacher who showed me how to ground myself. My experience cracked open the world for me and I went on to be attuned as a Reiki Master. So many people I love have been helped by Reiki and it works brilliantly on animals too. My lovely friend Jo is embarking on a new venture that brings together all of the healing work she has been doing for the last few decades. If you live with anything covered in fur, Jo is a brilliantly funny, down to earth, gifted healer who I swear is part-wolf (in the best way). Welcome to the world White Dog Reiki.
So, YAY for the Sun in Cancer!
(Though a wee message for you dear universe, if I may. It would be just super freaking awesome if you could arrange for the Sun to spend a bit of time in Blighty, even for a week or two? As this summer has so far, completely sucked ass. And if I have to look at one more beautifully shot instagram of The Americans in flippy frocks, on beaches, and/or enjoying a meal outside, or a cocktail on a roof bar, I may actually lose my shit. Love, Sas)
