This week our focus is on how we COMMUNICATE!Communication is a biggie and a time for radical honesty.
INTERMISSION™: Mental Mercury
INTERMISSION™: Mental Mercury
Well, Mercury went fully on retrograde yesterday.
You feeling it??? 🤔
Mercury is the planet of intellect, communication...all things mental.
It also affects travel/transportation and technology so back up those files and have patience when traveling!
Where's your Mercury in your natal chart?
Once you locate your Mercurial sign, take a peek at the energies below to see how Mercury plays into your astrological make up.
♈ Aries - witty, outspoken
♉ Taurus - practical, stable
♊ Gemini - versatile with worldly interests
♋ Cancer - sensitive, 6th sense activated
♌ Leo - leader, magnetic
♍ Virgo - analytical mind
♎ Libra - balance b/w mind and action
♏ Scorpio - investigative, fight for cause
♐ Sagittarius - quick, to the point
♑ Capricorn - ambitious, methodical
♒ Aquarius - clever, inventive
♓ Pisces - imaginative, creative
With Mercury appearing to move backwards on the sky, it's encouraging us to take a look at the past and our patterns that may no longer serve us. It's a time for review and regeneration.
I'd love to hear from you... What areas of your life need a lil review?
We learn from one another. Xo
INTERMISSION™: Wednesday Wisdom
Epicetus is the man!
Born a slave in the 1st century...later becoming a renowned Greek philosopher whose work is relevant today.
He focused on integrity, self-management and personal freedom. Hell, yeah, Epicetus!
His 2 central ideas revolved around:
- Impressions - how we perceive our circumstances which are colored by our beliefs
-Volition - power of choice making us accountable for our actions and state of being based on our impressions
Pretty simple yet incredible impactful when understood.
Here are a few quotes from Epicetus that I shared in the video:
"It's not what happens to you but how you react to it that matters."
"Circumstances don't make the man, they only reveal him to himself."
"We are not disturbed by what happens to us, but by our thoughts about what happens to us." Read those again. Feel into them. Ponder what they mean to you.
We learn from one another. Xo
INTERMISSION™: Making a Different Choice
He made me so angry. 😡
She hurt my feelings. 😞
They don't get it or me. 😩
Have you ever thought or said these statements?
At one time or another, I'd guess they've crossed your mind.
How many times have you fired off a retort from that place of pain only to realize that you overreacted and later ended up apologizing? 🖐️ Raising my hand.
It's easy to feel hurt and look to place the cause of that feeling on someone else but we are the ones responsible for how we feel.
If you feel pain, it's coming from a wound inside of you that needs attention, healing and nurturing.
You heal it by becoming aware that it's there, asking yourself some tough questions to gain a better understanding and when faced with a similar situation, you're then able to pause and make a different choice in the moment. (For a deeper dive on questions to ask yourself for a better understanding of what the pain is all about pop on over to my post... Compassionate Expression from May 19, 2020 on social or my blog at KarmicKindness.com.) It's important to realize this is a practice so don't beat yourself up if you remain on the same patterns of behavior for a bit before shifting out. It's taken many years to create so its gonna take a little time to unwind.
The beauty lies in the journey and what you learn along the way. 🦋

Remember, we learn from one another. I'd love to hear from you. Xo
INTERMISSION™: Relationship with Yourself First
You know what I mean? 🤔
I'd love to hear what you think of them and if there's anything else you'd like for me to talk about in the future...
We learn from one another! Xo
INTERMISSION™: Stoic Sunday With a Side Order of Self-Care
🏛️ Keeping the #StoicSunday theme going this week with a quote from Marcus Aurelius... "I am part of the whole, all of which is governed by nature.
...I am intimately related to all the parts, which are of the same kind as myself. If I remember these two things, I cannot be discontented with anything that arises out of the whole, because I am connected to the whole. "
Pretty #powerful especially considering the impact we are feeling globally.
What appeared to be a" problem" in Asia has spread across the globe affecting the whole.
Similarly, the Golden Blanket of Loving Light #meditation I shared a couple weeks ago is intended to spread #love to the whole. The #intention is simply to know that those who need it the most will receive it. And in doing so, we as a whole are benefiting.
(Meditation is on #SoulFullSessions Podcast available on most podcast platforms)
Another way to spread the love is to love thyself whereby you have even more love to give.
(Starting to sound like the Stoics, aren't I? 🤓) In my mind, #self-love is the inspiration for self-care. #Self-care is the action you take to give yourself love.
And then you've got even more love to give!
I'd like to recommend a woman whom I love (Lisa Leach) and her business (Organic Plum Studio) that I adore to bring a little 💖 right to your doorstep or to your mama's doorstep if you wanna get a jump on Mother's Day... It's next Sunday by the way!
@plumlisa5 has loads of products available that can be bundled together for a personalized package or you can choose from a variety of pre-designed options... So many fabulous ones to choose from!
She uses only organic, top quality products and offers the #Eminence skincare line which is a world renowned and highly respected brand.
I can personally attest to their efficacy, how nice they feel on the skin and how yummy they smell! 🏵️ Take a peek at
I promise you will be so happy you did!
So here's to you today... Loving yourself in order to love others and in turn increasing the #vibes of the whole which will only get us through this #INTERMISSION and onto Act II!
We learn from one another... Share away my friends!

INTERMISSION™: Journal Pages (Week 4)
Welcome to Week 4...hard to believe we've been quarantined for that long!
This week our focus is on our CHILDHOOD!
Don't worry, we aren't going in very deep on this...just a little toe dipping. :)

You can print out the pages or fill in and save in the editable PDF format.
The INTERMISSION journal pages can be used in addition to your regular journaling practice if you have one...pop these in whenever you feel inspired to change it up a bit.
I've created 5 days to cover Monday thru Friday. If you'd like to continue this journaling practice over the weekend, use the back of the 5th day to write about the following (or whatever strikes your fancy)...What is my intention for today? What brings me joy? What am I grateful for?
And if you are printing...keep it green and print double sided if possible. :)
