The coming musk-rose, full of dewy wine,
The murmurous haunt of flies on summer eves.”

Spirit Library: May 2022 Message: Turning the Stones
We headed into May with all cylinders firing astrologically speaking so this month’s message is more focused than usual on the Astro side of things! We’re not beholden to the movements of the planets. However they do influence events and experiences, so having some awareness of what’s going on can be one of many tools we can use to help us navigate our way through.

How is a problem in your life really an opportunity?
Problems invite us to go inside to recognize a bigger picture of ourselves and of life. This bigger picture brings meaning to what is unfolding.
When you feel trapped in a problem, see if you can shift your perspective. Ask yourself, “What am I being invited to learn from this situation?” The answer will always revolve around a quality or value, like gratitude, freedom, compassion, love, will, humour or acceptance. The answer will also always promote union rather than separation.
As soon as we find the meaning in our challenge, our resistance to it melts away. Often, awareness of the lesson is all that is needed to resolve the problem. If not, the awareness brings us courage and ways to work through it.

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.”
Our perception tends to be that growth is hard, that it is a struggle, that it is work. But the truth is that we are only making it hard on ourselves. We cling to the past, try to control our futures. Are we willing to get out of our own way and just let it be? It could be so simple! Look at the flower. Learn from the flower. We can bloom just as easily
