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

BREAKER BREAKER

What's your 20?  If you know what that is, you're showing your age!  I'm not referring to that, rather I'm referring to whether you live where you were born.  I recall somewhere Edgar Cayce said your horoscope is different if you do.  I live about 3 miles from the hospital I was born  so wonder about the locational significance.  Besides the New Madrid Earthquake Vortex energy, this is Civil War battle/skirmish fields (guerrilla) everywhere, so history is living here. Retirees love it, at first anyway, but native born probably fare better.

NO CREATING ENERGY

What's your favorite thing to do at present?  Travel, decorating, writing, quilting, etc.  How often do you indulge your interest?  Reviewing might reveal that things have changed over the years, so if life moved on to new interests, update your list to reflect today so you aren't leaking valuable Attention.  Often we hang on to old identities that have no creating energy anymore.  Review, release and intensify Attention on what you love now. 

SMOKE SCREEN

Networkers report Mercury Retrograde Post Shadow phase is slow to fade and ditto  here at The Cottage so guess I'll cocoon in until May 3, when the Shadow phase is gone.  Although the Action Planet went direct April 15, it is slow as molasses!  Just when it appeared situations and conditions were completing it was a smoke screen covering (aka Holy Smoke/entity software) further delays.  Suggestions welcome.

FOCUS ON WHAT YOU LOVE

Whatever you focus on, you will experience.
So, when you talk about "what is" or "what was," even if you're just explaining to a friendly ear, you project more of the same into the future. 
If you ask more than you give thanks, you'll believe less in your own power.
And if you insist that it's hard and that you're lonely, you'll find that it is and you are.
Or, you can choose to focus on what you like, what you love, and how very photogenic you are.
Tallyho,
   The Universe

LOUD AND CLEAR

The Action Planet is in Post Retrograde Shadow phase until May 2 so I'm playing it safe here at The Cottage doing a bit of decorating, my meditation of choice, and realized there's a plus to Mercury slowdown.  It's given me the slo-mo to review some prospective relocations when cottage sells, to discover more cons than pros on some, so updated list.  Then only this morning I had a big intuitive reveal -- about love and romance.  While considering to go on a blind date, I got smacked in Solar Plexus loud and clear that I don't want the ties and responsibility that comes with falling in love again!  Who knew?

MYSTIC MAMMA

***NEW MOON* in Aries + Mercury going Direct marks a turning point for us all.This recent passage hopefully has brought us galvanizing growth, broader understanding, and self-forgiveness coupled with greater awareness of our actions and their effects.As a new cycle begins, we set forth with new understanding and are ready to seed our actions with our newfound inspiration.But patience is needed, as mindfulness is seeded with every step in its own good time.
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from our wise and illuminating featured astrologers.

MERCURY RETROGRADE GOES DIRECT AND NEW MOON IN ARIES

Tomorrow, April 15, light a candle and welcome Mercury Retrograde  Stationary Direct and  New Moon in Aries!  The perfect kick start for new beginnings.  The planetary aspects/friendly stars should clear our path ahead so be ready to launch new projects, complete old ones and review and release what no longer serves.  Don't forget Abundance Bucks and  practice Presence!

GIVING UP

Now that Spring has sprung here, do you have some new goals/projects corresponding to the new growth season?  Some are beginning all new while others are ceasing  goals entirely -- same difference. Then there's those that fall  in between somewhere, taking the middle road, updating goals aka giving up/align with the Matrix/stuck in a rut by accepting what is.  Whatever your choice, stall until Mercury Retrograde goes Stationary Direct April 15.

PORTAL PATHWAY

Those that know about portals are familiar with energy vortex gateways, in theory anyway.  Many sense landscape portals, for good or ill, and embrace or avoid accordingly.  While there's a lot of ideas about portals, one is that they are technological gateways installed by  ET's/Matrix/controllers/hackers,   no doubt for their own agenda.  Interior portals in rooms are probably bleed-through from earth portals under the house. Seen a ghost lately?  May be an interdimensional pathway aka portal.  Years ago I looked up and saw a 'ghostly' woman in the hall who was as startled to see me as I was her!  That wasn't the only strange thing that happened there, but even then I knew it was some kind of technological glitch.

IT'S DOABLE

Those affected by  Mercury Retrograde will be glad to know just 4 more days until Mercury goes Stationary Direct April 15.  There's still the post retrograde shadow to go through but it's doable.

DIVINE INTELLIGENCE

What do you do when there is no way?  Instead of resistance/dragging out your arsenal of tools to attack, what about just decide there's a way, or even better there's lot's of ways.  The marvelous Divine Intelligence that gave us life, governs our body systems, protects and heals us, created this gorgeous blue planet and all the stars above, can surely delete/solve, provide solutions for any and all issues, dilemmas, conditions/anything created, including world affairs, climate change, limitations/shortages, earthquakes, tsunamis, even escape The Matrix/computer simulated reality.  Try it.

ART OR SCIENCE

I know many of my readers practice gratefulness -- I started to write "the art" of gratefulness but it's not an art it's a science, meaning technology with  repeatable results, rather confusing because we equate 'art' with refined skill.  Practicing grateful thankfulness technology  creates same results while art is our skill in using it. Just do it.

OPEN SESAME

With another week to go until Mercury goes direct April 15, many are bored, grumpy and so over the Action planet slowdown! It's a good time to review and release what no longer serves, and intensify Attention on what you want. Speak your Creative word and be thankful for it,  even though you don't have it yet, that's the open sesame to manifestation.

THE FIVE AGREEMENTS BY DON MIGUEL RUIZ

According to don Miguel Ruiz, everything we do is based on agreements we have made — agreements with ourselves, with other people, with God, and with life. But the most important agreements are the ones we make with ourselves. With these agreements we tell ourselves who we are, how to behave, what is possible, what is impossible.

The Five Agreements:
  1. BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
    Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
  2. DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
    Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
  3. DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
    Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
  4. ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST
    Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are tired as opposed to well rested. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
  5. BE SKEPTICAL, BUT LEARN TO LISTEN
    Don’t believe yourself or anybody else. Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear: Is it really the truth? Listen to the intent behind the words, and you will understand the real message.

SOMEDAY

Those that practice Don Miquel Ruiz The Four Agreements know the discipline required. Many were domesticated by family, school, society and religion until  so brainwashed it's a wonder we have any Will left.  When you're struggling  to just survive, the concept of surrender is out of the question until someday inspiration comes a la Toltec Teachings empowering frequency. Try it.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING

I surrender to life. Everything in life is just the way it is, and because I accept everything as it is, I don't worry about anything. I surrender to the force of life that's flowing through my body and my mind. It's a way of being. It's being life.

HAPPY FULL BLUE MOON

The full moon on Saturday March 31, 2018 at 10° Libra is a blue moon because it is the second full moon of the calendar month. The Blue Moon March 2018 astrology chart has eight challenging red aspects and one helpful blue aspect. Full Moon March 2018 is a blue moon in every sense of the word.
Mercury retrograde opposite the Blue Moon March 2018 means it will be hard to understand your feelings and even harder to share them. Saturn square the full moon and Mercury brings negative thinking, sadness and loneliness. Worry and fear from fixed stars make this a particularly troubling full moon. Doing nothing and letting the full moon get you down is not an option.
The good thing about challenging aspects is that they force you work hard and improve yourself. The one positive aspect in the full moon chart is helping you positively transform your life in powerful ways. This is a full moon to work with your fears and release them from your subconscious.

GO IT ALONE

For those of a certain age, what would you like to do next?  How many squander their creative energy, ego driven by transparent (to them anyway) identities?  Others at cross-purposes, remain extras in the reality movie, perhaps to awaken at another time.  Advanced creators answered  the call, willing to go it alone if necessary, to make their contribution aka The Mission.  It's not too late............join us.

HOW FUN!

It's rainy days here at The Cottage, turning everything green again.  AKA the growing season, the energy is palpable, inspiring a vision of busy elves/brownies swarming/working  to the tune of spring - how fun!  It reminds me of a wonderful story/website Lily Hill Farm I discovered many years ago.  

EASTER

With Easter on the way many are preparing for holiday dinner gatherings, some are going to Easter sunrise services followed by planting gardens. Non religious view it as symbolic, while some relate to a bit of both.  Whatever your persuasion, remember to light a candle and welcome the return of the Sun.

MERCURY RETROGRADE IN ARIES MARCH 22 - APRIL 15 2018

( Admin-- Sorry,  Glitch so this didn't post)
Mercury Retrograde in Aries
 Many of you know the drill: Count on greater misunderstandings, as all communications are more likely to suffer; expect delays and/or undelivered mail or messages.  EXPECT to write and rewrite in the present and WISH to rewrite the past.  Always get repairs done of any kind before Mercury Retrograde begins or wait until it ends. 
Emergencies excepted, Mercury Retrograde is definitely NOT the time to start a new relationship, a new job, or long-term project — let alone a new career; it is not the time enter into binding commitments (marriage, financial, or otherwise) without the absolute expectation of necessary modifications, alternative compromises and/or reversals in the original plan and/or intent.  Unless it’s an emergency, it is generally not a good idea make or go to medical appointments during Mercury Retrograde.
