''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie, Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.” Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"


Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for the insect, as well as for the star. Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.”Albert Einstein


It's a rainy Saturday morning, good time to sit by the fireplace with a cuppa, and entertain the space of expectancy per The Universe. Join me.


Have the winds of Fate carried you down a windy road?  If so it polished and refined you 'til you're bright and shiny.  Along the way you refined yourself, a real plus in becoming who you wanted to be. Alone, exploring the path, you disentangled  from negative situations, choosing to experience without judgement, following your own star, to participate in the great shift to the Age of Aquarius.  Shine on.


It's been quiet here at The Cottage as I revive routine a la domestic goddess/kitchen diva..........going from take-out to homemade.  On a metaphysical note, there's change on the way, since  change in one area reflects change in other areas.  What seems like small changes can activate reality shifts/upgrades, clearing our path of transparent blocks and detours, perhaps  best seen in hindsight.  FYI, you can't learn to swim w/o getting in the water, so dive in! 


We're all familiar with the proverb  "Blood's thicker than water", used to explain family ties come first.  How often have we excused negativity  because they're family?  Maybe it's embedded in our DNA, inserted software OR throwback to paleo era when we needed our tribe for survival?  Should yours be unsupportive, nix the grief, cut the ties and replace with  likeminded others.


Today's mantra: "Happy News".
Maybe you've noticed , socalled close relationships not so close anymore -- those sensitive/intuitive may even perceive some hostility?  Should this happen to you, release the tie ASAP and move on.  Remember, "when one door closes another opens" and embrace  higher and better ahead.


Lot's of recent activity has kept me busy, tax time, home repairs, deaths in family (RIP), so new projects went  on the back burner.  On the plus side, after all the usual health/diet hype, I've switched permanently back to Paleo diet which entails a bit of cooking, something I gave up years ago, but actually enjoy.  I made homemade ketchup this week, quick and easy and homemade mayo next on list. You may wonder why I'm sharing, but the kitchen diva's out there understand how spiritual preparing food is..........join us. 


While some of us were trying to figure out how to use our smartphones, others somewhere were creating advanced technology to use against us.  Beware.


New Moon and Solar Eclipse February 15, 2018
We have a sweet treat this Valentine’s with the New Moon February 15 and a solar eclipse. Together with the January 31 lunar eclipse, the February 15 solar eclipse signals a new awareness and changes for those who seek spiritual advancement.
A new moon symbolizes new beginnings when you look at old goals and set new ones. It is a good time to contemplate upon your life. The meaning of a new moon is the opportunity to start anew and refresh your dreams and desires. It is a time of magic!
What many people want as a new beginning is to have love in their life.  Valentine’s Day can often cause single people to feel more depressed than normal.  It makes them aware of being alone.  This month conversations take on the love tone.  Single or not everyone has a desire for love.  They either want to receive love, give love, or embrace divine love
There will be No Full Moon in February 2018. Why? This last happened in 1999 and occurs about 4 times a century. February is the only month that this is possible because the lunar cycle is longer than the number of days in February. When this does occur January and March usually have 2 Full Moon as it does this year.

We’re officially halfway through February, and that means Valentine’s Day is upon us. Yes, the day is about all things love, but this year it takes on additional significance when viewed in an astrological context. The day after Valentine’s Day, we have a solar eclipse and a new moon, both of which invite expansion and new opportunities into our lives. Regardless whether you’re single or in a happy relationship, this energy is perfect for moving forward with an open heart, so you can carry the message of love throughout the rest of the year.
A new moon is the beginning of the moon’s 28-day cycle. It’s a fresh energetic slate, and a time when we plant seeds that we want to nurture and cultivate over the next month. That energy alone can be intense, but paired with an eclipse it’s even more potent. An eclipse is an energetic doorway of transformation that creates opportunities for us during the next 6-12 months. This is all colored by the moon being stationed in Aquarius, the sign of the water bearer, a humanitarian who loves to set their sights on how they can help humanity.


Yesterdays Rumi post was a good reminder about receiving.  We can get so frantic trying to find/create what we want when we need to  stay still and follow our intuitive guidance. Over the years I've had several experiences on this, so know it works. When we dive in trying to create goals it may  create blocking energy  so next time listen to your intuition.


Years ago, while still in the beauty business,, one of my clients was rebooting her franchise and became a great success.   Just this morning something reminded me of her and got me to thinking about the qualities that contributed to her achievements. She was a Leo, positive, exuberant, self confident, always up -- all the personality attributes of that astrological sign, and in spite of  business  peaks and valleys she always rebounded  stronger and better.  Her brand is a household name, showing what tunnel vision, hard work, tenacity vis a vis never give up dedication can do.  Thank you GF, for inspiring women everywhere.


How's the SuperBlueMoon/Lunar Eclipse vibes treating you?  Some report health and or relationship issues etc while others appreciated the illuminating lunar rays raising vibrations.. Here at The Cottage, the rays reveal new horizons.


Ho’oponopono by Dr. Hew Len

We are going through a time when many are upset and agitated about the direction of our government.  It feels like a good time to focus on peace, calm, and neutrality.  I am reminded of a powerful way of shifting that I have mentioned before and that is taught by Dr. Hew Len.  It is a Hawaiian ritual called Ho’oponopono.
The essence of it is that we are totally responsible for our own life and universe, and that we can use the world we are in as a mirror for learning where to focus on loving ourselves at a deeper level.
When we are bothered by or reacting to something outside of ourselves, we look for where/how/when we said/thought/or did the very same thing that is bothering us.  We then focus on loving and accepting ourselves for the very same thing.  It is as simple as expressing to ourselves, “Thank you, I love you!  I love you, thank you!”
YES, it is that simple!  And,it directly addresses what I believe is our biggest symptom…lack of self acceptance.


Maybe it's the SuperBlueMoon Lunar Eclipse vibes but I'm inspired  to expand my horizons so taking baby  steps--  let's see if The Universe  recognizes?   On the other hand, it occurs to me that I may be responding to someones telepathic request?  We just love to think we create our own reality/that we're in charge etc when we may be responding to subtle mind control a la marketing, TV commercials vis a vis brainwashing and worse yet, frequency  broadcasts sent via advanced technology? *Holy smoke!
*HOLY SMOKE-- I realized years ago this expression/metaphor is subconscious recognition of programming/entity and stopped using it but it followed today's post in emphatic way so included it. Advanced readers 'get it' and need no explanation.


Are you feeling the  approaching SuperBlueMoon Total Lunar Eclipse energy? It's giving  a boost, escalating/firing neutrons,  raising vibrations.  Here at The Cottage, I'm intensifying intention on HoOponopono forgiveness tech......... thank you Dr. Hew Len. 


‘Super Blue Blood Moon’ Coming Jan. 31 If you live in the western part of North America, Alaska, and the Hawaiian islands, you might set your alarm early the morning of Wednesday, Jan. 31 for a lunar trifecta: a pre-dawn “super blue blood moon.


How susceptible are we to mind control?  I mean covert mind control from outside sources that control the masses.  We have TV, newspapers, internet etc subtle brainwashing but there's more, broadcast on frequencies most are unaware of, that are received by aligned brainwave frequencies.  Those who don't understand/believe this might educate themselves with many websites available and yes, they're pretty scary but not as scary as being controlled?  You decide.


The trouble with  goals is often we are just wishing and wanting unless the path to it is shown or it literally manifests.  My take on it is, let your intuition be your guide.  Intuition, the gut chakra/solar plexus, is the bridge to Higher I, and always true/accurate -  ie if your gut message is to move to Hawaii then why did we move to Florida? We go against our intuition then struggle when our choice doesn't work out?  No wonder.


Just a thought about goals - do you have some on the back burner?  I do, and realize they're leaking creative energy, even more so because they're unaligned and cancel each other out, so take my advice and create goals supportive of  each other.   Review, release, and choose what's right for you now, then intensify intention with tunnel vision focus until it's real. 


Just an interesting aside per computer simulated reality:  I just had  a one week software insert archive.  It began with a death in the family and ended/archived yesterday with return to normal here at The Cottage after the service and all the company.  Since in the past these have provided opportunity for airing family grievances, I sought to avert that from the start by creating peace/harmony for all concerned - and there was!  I'd like to take credit for it but suspect that too was just more software a la let her think she created that?  If you don't believe in  computer simulated reality theory, pay close attention and mind the edges anyway.
