And the sky is red with the Harvest Moon.

Spiritual Unite: Lime Green Aura Meaning | For Growth And Change
You can tell a lot about a person from their aura. Auras are colour expressions of the unique vibrational energies your subtle body puts out into the world. From those colours, you can effectively see what that person is made up of. Today we’re looking at the lime green aura. So what does the lime green aura mean?

DANCE THROUGH YOUR DAY
“Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans: it’s lovely to be silly at the right moment.”
Today, we invite you to do the Take-Your-Time Tango. In his book ‘Games for the Soul,’ Drew Leder challenges us to dance through our days with the graceful, slow elegance of a tango dancer.
“Slow down a notch,” Leder counsels. “Do whatever you do in a calm and leisurely fashion. … As much as possible, don’t be driven by inner fear, external deadlines, or rushed companions to stumble through a speeded-up dance. Act as if you have all the timein the world. Come to think of it, you do: No one else has any more hours.”
So stand (or sit) tall. Raise your chin as you gather your full concentration, dignity and self confidence to glide smoothly and beautifully through the day.
“We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigor, the mystery, the humor, the variety, and the wonder of life.”
— Martha Graham
A Note from the Universe

Hope I got to you before they did,

“The biggest mistake is believing there is one right way to listen, to talk, to have a conversation – or a relationship.”
A relationship is a living thing. It grows, evolves, and no two are the same. We need to care for our relationships, and that can mean different things in different circumstances. We need to pay attention to relationships that are important to us, and know that in return the relationship nurtures us.
