As we move deeper into March we can expect a continued lightening of the energies. As a result, there is a greater sense of motivation and focus which makes a dramatic change after what seems like months of apathy and exhaustion.

By Anne-Marie Fryer
We just finished harvesting the fall vegetables from the garden beds. It is not long ago everything was growing vigorously. What has happened to the life of the garden?

Inner Journey: LET GO OF THE PAST
“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think that you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.”
— Asha Tyson
No regrets. As we become more aware, we begin to realize that there’s a purpose to everything that happens. This builds our trust, and supports us in being willing to be more open and daring to really experience life as it unfolds.
If we pay attention to what’s happening in each moment, we will discover that life continually brings us opportunities to heal our past wounds. When a painful memory surfaces, we can take the time to feel it fully, give compassion to ourselves and any others and allow the energy to release. As we deal with the past in this way IN THE PRESENT, we free ourselves to more fully connect with life.
“The next message you need is right where you are.”
— Ram Dass

Women and Men
“The basic discovery about any people is the discovery of the relationship between its men and women.”
-Pearl S. Buck, 1941
This whole subject has been the basis for many sociological studies. A recent reality TV show had several men live as women for a few weeks, just to see if they could do it, and who get away with it the longest. Of course, it made for many comical moments, but the deeper lesson was that at the end of the exercise these men had a newfound respect for women, particularly the women in their lives. And this is a basic truth that carries over into every area. If we want to know how someone lives, we need to walk a mile in their shoes, or in this case, their high-heels!

Daily Tarot: The Hermit
Smooth your way through the day by being as respectable as time and circumstance require. Fit in, look and sound the part that you’ve been assigned, and get a lot done with very little or no resistance. In general, being respectable can be a good thing and serve you well, especially when dealing with new people or with those who don’t know you very well
