On February 7th, my rekindled love and I took a day trip to Bisbee. In between picking up some of my art pieces from Meridian Books (a wonderful, locally owned bookstore...check it out if you are in the area) and tramping up and down stairs, I discovered some deep inner peace.
Of course, this feeling is fleeting, and waxes and wanes with the moon. However, touching some peace for the first time this year helped me realize the truth in the new moon/year of the Fire Monkey.
Reading up on some Chinese astrology, the last two years have been Yin/Wood years, and now it is time to celebrate a yang, fire, extroverted time of manifestation and reaping the rewards of our pursuits!!
How auspicious for myself, personally, that my birthday falls on a new moon and the beginning of the Chinese new year! I'm reminding myself that I LOVE MYSELF and hope this love spreads around to others. xoxo bless you Mahala
