Adventures in Self-Publishing

Back just in time for Spring!

I’ve been busily posting away about my adventures in New Zealand, and am just getting organized enough to begin thinking about tarot and astrology again. Over on Comparative Tarot, we’re talking about the Four of Cups. While this card may bring to mind dissatisfaction and ennui, it can also be a good suggestion to slow down and check in with your emotions. Spring has sprung (one of the advantages of going on a month-long vacation far away), and it’s a perfect time to sit on a park bench and admire the cherry blossoms, while contemplating whatever there is that needs attention in your life. I’ve written more about this process in a recent chapter in my new Living the Tarot book, if this is something that resonates with you.

In the meantime, the Vernal Equinox is upon us! After the long dreary winter of rain, snow, dark, and cold, it’s a nice thought that the days will be getting longer and warmer from here on out. Saturday is the day – in the morning, the Moon will be in Taurus, and mid-morning, the Sun will move into Aries – strengthening our emotional/physical connections to the earth and garden and our energetic enthusiasm for activity and new beginnings. A good time to plant some seedlings, prune and weed to make way for new growth. Once the garden is all nice and tidy, a void of course moon in the afternoon may encourage lazy enjoyment of spring blossoms, without any particular need to get anything done. The moon moves into Gemini in the early evening and makes positive aspects to a number of other planets, setting the stage for a social night out (or in), filled with conversation and friendship.

Sounds like a wonderful way to start the new vernal year!
