“See us cuddle and hug,” say the Pleiades,

We huddle together like birds in a storm:
It’s bitter weather tonight.”
-Robert Graves (1895-1985)

MBG: Happy 100th Birthday, Grand Canyon! Here’s How You Can Protect It For Another Century
Cue the birthday song! Today marks 100 years since the Grand Canyon was named a national park.
Following its designation on February 26, 1919, by President Woodrow Wilson, the park attracted around 45,000 visitors annually. Today, over 6 million people every year flock to the otherworldly rock formations etched by the Colorado River.
Daily Good: The Joy of Being a Woman in Her Seventies
“When I told my friends I was writing a book on older women like us, they immediately protested, “I am not old.” What they meant was that they didn’t act or feel like the cultural stereotypes of women their age. Old meant bossy, useless, unhappy and in the way. Our country’s ideas about old women are so toxic that almost no one, no matter her age, will admit she is old.” Mary Pipher, a clinical psychologist and the celebrated author of Reviving Ophelia delves into the meaningful riches available to women as they age, counter to what mainstream cultural narrative suggests
Elephant Journal: March brings us Magical New Moons & Healing Full Moons.
Imagine your soft feather pillow pushed up against a sturdy wooden headboard.
Or the intersection of warm water and the concrete wall of a swimming pool.
March may provoke similar feelings of contrast for us.
The astrology this month gives us no choice but to yield and go with the flow, and yet, at the same time, our healthy resistances and natural aggression will want to rise up and take shape, too.
Can we be both fluid and solid at the same time?
MNN: This is the remarkable 3,245-year-old rope that sealed King Tut’s tomb
It guarded the royal sarcophagus and survived 32 centuries before being cut in 1923.
More than 3,000 years ago, deep below the surface of the Valley of the Kings, someone sealed one of a series of nested shrines protecting the final resting place of the young pharoah Tutankhamun with an intricate combination of knots and clay. There it remained, fully intact for more than 32 centuries, until until Feb. 16, 1923, when famed archaeologist Howard Carter breached the seal and explored the riches of the inner burial shrines for the first time.
EarthSky News: Arc to Arcturus, the springtime star
Tonight, at mid-northern latitudes, look for the brilliant star Arcturus to climb over your eastern horizon around 9 to 10 p.m. local time. That’s the approximate time on your clock, regardless of your longitude. South of the equator, this northerly star rises considerably later in the evening. Click here to know when Arcturus rises into your sky.
Patheos-Pagan: Urban Earth Mother
I discovered the Urban Earth Mother. She wasn’t hiding. Heraclitus said “Nature loves to hide.” I agree. I never thought I would see her with my own eyes, but she was there. Yet, I have. Somewhere between Texas Imbolc and Pantheacon, I found myself with long layovers at Chicago’s O’Hare airport and that is when I found her.
FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT
“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our minds are incredibly powerful. We put that power to work for us when we consciously set an intention to be or do something. Get into the habit of consciously setting an intention for activities throughout your day.
Your intention might support efficiency – for example, to complete a job or project by a specific time. Your intention might support your personal growth, e.g., to undertake a task that scares you. Or it might support more soul connection, e.g., to be grateful for gifts we take for granted.
When we take the time to set an intention, no matter how trivial, we are consciously choosing what we want for ourselves. With consistent attention, your intentions will come to life!
“By becoming a conscious choice-maker, you begin to generate actions that are evolutionary for you.”
— Deepak Chopra
A Note from the Universe
Some will hear, but not listen.
Some will listen, but not understand.
And some will understand, but not act.
But OMG, once you have financial security for myself and family… rest assured these very same friends will call you “lucky,” as they secretly begin to move with their own dreams.
Love to love you,

“Everything, by an impulse of its own nature, tends towards its perfection.”
-Dante (A.D. 1265-1321)
Is it our nature to seek perfection? Or can we understand that it is our imperfections that make us perfect! We are here on this earth to learn and grow and experience. If we were already “perfect” what would be the point? If we were already perfect wouldn’t we be bored? We can always strive towards being the best that we can possibly be as human beings – knowing that a perfect human being must by design be imperfect in some beautiful way.
