after the blood moon…

Before a major eclipse, there is anxiety and anticipation. During, there is excitement, irritation, and awe. After the blood moon lunar eclipse in Aries while Pluto stationed Direct in motion, we must gather our strength, clean up the wreckage, shake the dust from our limbs, and prepare to resume the journey of self discovery in a world of mirage, and that means we must be prepared to do it alone, if need be.

Mercury retrograde in Libra highlights many of the paradoxes of being in relationship. Say goodbye to an old version of the person you knew, or the person you previously presented yourself to be. If we hang around long enough, any relationship pushes our buttons, and always points us back to ourselves.

If there is seemingly nothing else left to our name after the crash and burn of recent times, we have Choice. The Sun in Libra may fear it, but once claimed becomes a great ally.

Multiple choices, options, and opportunities are offered to us now and in the weeks ahead, so let’s see how many of these are seized from without, versus within. Who steers the ship we are tilting in, side to side? Who makes the decisions in our lives? Who jumps in and says yes for us before we have even had a moment to reflect upon our own desires?

Bernini Pluto and persephone sculptureLike the streaks on a butterfly just emerged from its cocoon or the collapse of cities and villages due to war, something has left its indelible mark on us. Unlike the temporary red string tied to a pinkie finger to remind us of a future plan or event, Pluto gives us a scar to remind us where we have been. We can wear it proudly or hide it in shame, but this is our truth, of which there is no denying.

This is our chance to embrace our truth, rather than to bury it. To express our emotions rather than suppress them. To be able to to take the scraps that life has gingerly tossed our way and to make incredible quilts. To approach who we see in the mirror with the same curiosity and ardor felt toward a new lover. To reinvent the meaning of the stars and the jagged rocks along the path that leads us into the unknown.

Pluto Direct, light at the end of a tunnel in 2015

As Pluto stations Direct, 12 degrees of Capricorn (began last night on the 24th), there is a sense of rising on the earth plane. There is a glimmer of light becoming visible at the end of a long, torturous tunnel that we have traveled through since June of 2012 when Pluto in Capricorn began a three-year square to Uranus in Aries, just preceding the Winter Solstice that ancients predicted to be the end of the world as we knew it.


Pluto is Retrograde for about about half of each year, bringing extra intensity to whatever sign and degrees being transited. Whenever Pluto stations Retrograde or Direct, you can bet that there will be intensity, especially when it squares a Retrograde Mercury in Libra. Hidden agendas become revealed, obsessions blow out of proportion, something or someone will hit the roof, or fall to pieces. Sometimes, some form of conflict will finally become resolved. The sensation of that stationary process can last for several days or weeks. Pluto’s post-retrograde shadow finally ends in January 2016.

Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008 until 2023, placing a highlight on government, social structures, financial trade markets, global economy, and business commerce. We’ve all been going through a major upgrade with regard to our relationship to power, authority, and paternity, although it often appears and feels like a complete breakdown. The old must be destroyed before the new can shine through, and I don’t mean new world order. In actuality, our survival may ultimately depend upon us going back to basics and simplifying our overly complicated and chaotic lifestyles.

From April 16th of 2015 until September 24th, the planet of death and rebirth appeared to move backward, dredging up old contracts, unhealed wounds, and deep grievances to be reckoned with. Since January 2014, those of us with planets or angles between 12-15 degrees of any of the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn have been particularly affected by the transits involving Pluto and Uranus. This year there has been a catharsis and acceleration of several life changes based on a rooting out of outdated things, patterns, and beliefs, whether with ease or agony. Some of the issues that have been coming up relate to major life changes such as integrating a new career, divorce, relocation, or any series of deaths, both physical and emotional.

With Pluto hitting me from every side lately (& pretty much since birth) one of the things that has been coming up for me all month is a series of confirmations about things I have long felt about many different things, people and situations, some of them going way back into the past or my childhood. In retrospect, I was struggling so hard to try and rescue people and children when the power to do so was not in my hands. I became deathly ill at a young age, and went through a seven year nightmare that taught me how to integrate shadows and light, and to better trust in what we call the Higher Self.

Pluto relates to the depth of our souls and the accuracy of our intuition, particularly when there is something we are afraid to see. The beauty of listening to your intuition is that it will always lead you home, to the comfort and purity of your true self. It will always bring confirmation (but not always right away – sometimes you need to go out there on a limb, feeling completely vulnerable!). It will always steer you away from disaster and reveal solutions not available to you or others who are in a state of panic or shock. If panic is a personal problem, try to slow down the breath and see if that panic is truly your own or coming from a sense of what or who is sorely unwell in your environment.

It is devastating in some ways to see what has become of some of those people & children I tried to help. But this is where I need to surrender to the unfolding mysteries of life, and allow every person to go their own way, to learn their own lessons as I learned mine. It is equally amazing and heartening to see some of the souls I’ve witnessed come out of their dark tunnels victorious and fulfilled on many levels.

Everybody is psychic, everybody has intuition whether they are aware of it or not, whether they call it that or nothing at all. The quality of a person’s life is often determined by their ability to listen to the quiet, occasionally nagging voice within that says yes or no about each and every thing that arises. Don’t wait for somebody else, especially for Pluto to determine your destiny. Seize the day. Be yourself. Follow your bliss.

The year 2016 should offer some relief from recent strains. As alone as we may sometimes feel in our pain and suffering, we all have benefactors, and we all have access to divine grace. Chin up…we got this.

Lunar Eclipse in Aries – 2015

With the upcoming Blood Moon eclipse at 4 degrees of Aries on September 27th we will have come full circle with a rare set of four eclipses within the axis of Aries and Libra that began last year, representing a struggle between our sense of autonomy, self-empowerment, discovery, sovereignty and the ability to relate well with others and cooperate. It highlights a balancing act of being able to compromise if, when, and where necessary without compromising one’s true self or integrity. It is about understanding personal motivations and how they intersect or clash with the motives of others.

These are the dates of this blood moon series, so that you can look back and recall what may have been taking place in your life during, just prior to and in between these times. Although the moments pass quickly during an eclipse, its energetic effects are carried many years into the future.

  • April 15, 2014 – Lunar Eclipse 25 degrees Libra
  • October 7, 2014 – Lunar Eclipse 15 degrees Aries
  • April 4, 2015 – Lunar Eclipse 14 degrees Libra
  • September 27, 2015 – Lunar Eclipse 4 degrees Aries

The lunar eclipse falls in Aries, and yet there is a huge focus in its polar opposite sign Libra, currently occupied by a stellium that includes the Sun, North Node, Juno, Black Moon Lilith, and Mercury Retrograde. Some relationships are growing stronger through this period and some are finally falling apart as their numerous, almost irreparable dysfunctions are revealed.

The ruling planets of Aries and Libra are Mars and Venus, who as deities knew no in-between phase with their intense passions. Sweet lovers or bitter enemies, they merged ecstatically or fought fiercely with each other. What we seek within their axis is a middle ground, where all feelings that arise are acknowledged but not necessarily acted upon. We develop the capacity to stand back and witness our emotions, to curtail our reactions rather than remaining hostage to them, as helpless as infants.

Mars has moved out of Leo as of September 24th, approaching Jupiter in Virgo and bringing a wave of fresh new energy and focus to goals and activities. Mars and Venus will join together for a third time this year on November 2nd, the first two times being February 21st and August 31st. That gives us one more chance to “kiss and make up” within these next several weeks if there is a nearly broken relationship that is worth saving.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac symbolizing the beginning of a cycle, a way of being, an exploration of the world or of oneself. A lunar eclipse here indicates there are both significant beginnings and endings underway. Certain relationships or cycles within them have come to completion, or closure. Now, on to the next chapter, the next phase of relating whether to another, or specifically to oneself, or both. In any situation we may find ourselves in there is a resurfacing of selfhood that we may either choose to embrace or shun. We are reminded of what makes us tick aside from all of the demands and influences of others.

Most of us have become creatures of habit, accustomed to taking actions that revolve around moving, living and breathing in default mode on a daily basis, unaware of our own intuitive and creative abilities. We go around doing the best we can to please others and obey laws that were constructed for us before we were born. Many people become frozen, almost terrified when they are asked the question “What do YOU want to do?”

So, what do you want to do? What stands in your way? If you are the one standing in your own way, are you willing to risk the position you believe yourself to hold currently? Are you willing to leap into the unknown for the sake of self-discovery, new adventures, and perhaps enlightenment and liberation?

Asteroid Vesta, named after the goddess of the sacred flame is conjunct the lunar eclipse, heightening our self-determination, self-respect, and the self knowledge to make decisions that support personal success and fulfillment. Since many of us are used to disowning or disrespecting aspects of self for the sake of a relationship to another person, group or society in general, there is potential for a powerful awakening and reclaiming of long-lost parts of our psyche that were buried due to trauma or abuse – what is called soul-retrieval in shamanic terms.

Aries is ruled by the fire element, so rituals involving fire are recommended at this time, honoring its powers of destruction and creation. These could be for examples in the form of bonfires, puja ceremonies, or a quiet candle blessing at home…

The Sabian symbol for this Full Moon is A Triangle With Wings

According to Dane Rudhyar, this is “the symbol of the desire to reach a higher level of existence, of pure aspiration or devotion, of bhakti…a NEW DIMENSION of being is envisioned mobilizing creative endeavors.”

Shine bright as the starlight being of infinite potential you originally came here to be, before parents, society, institutions, and other constructs got in the way of your self expression.

Blood Moon Eclipse, Syria, & World Economy

For the first time in 33 years, a total full moon eclipse will occur with a supermoon, with the earth’s shadow casting a red hue on the moon, hence the term Blood Moon. This is the final moon out of a tetrad of four blood moons between April 15, 2015 and September 27th 2015, all on Jewish feast days within a Shemitah year (such years indicate the rise and fall of empires).

The Lunar Eclipse at 4 degrees Aries on September 27th directly opposes the twelfth house (the house of undoing) Neptune of Syria, and forms a t-square with its Capricorn Sun in the third house (the house of relatives, community, and education). This transit highly sensitizes this country and the entire planet to the vibrations of its recent collapse. The eclipse occurs in Syria’s sixth house, which draws attention to a need for provisions, work that pays, and immediate health care. The damage of cival war has been done, with the shock and trauma so severe that the impact has yet to fully catch up with the millions who were affected, losing their families, jobs, and their homes.

As of this early this month, Saturn has finally eased out of a tumultuous three year transit to Syria’s second house (house of values and finances) Venus in Scorpio, which hit hard these past few weeks with the stark reality of its economic demise. Anti-government demonstrations began in March of 2011, increasing after a governmental crackdown. While neighboring countries have been assisting refugees since 2012 it’s finally clear to the USA and the rest of the world that Syrian victims have absolutely no homes left to return to, and an increasing number of them are seeking for escape and refuge from what has become a realm of terror.

Meanwhile Neptune transits the USA’s third house placement of Ceres in watery Pisces, the asteroid representing what nourishes and sustains us, waking up the nation to its own spiritual poverty as well as the physical starvation of others. Hopefully this will awaken our compassion in addition to a knowledge of what’s really going on in the world and how it relates to us. Mercury Retrograde transits the US’s tenth house Saturn, while Saturn in Sagittarius approaches its first house Ascendant, asking us to do something about the damage either we ourselves or our distant ancestors have done. Standing up on a podium before billions and saying something clever doesn’t do jack to make amends. Holding up a placard in a busy city street gets exhausting too. As individuals we might not be able to save a nation, but we can play a small part in taking the very best care of ourselves, our children, and the land that we occupy. Then we will be in a position to do better than some of those settlers who came before us.

Since the Spring of 2015 until the Summer of 2016 Uranus is transiting the USA’s fourth house placement of Chiron in Aries, creating an itch for change, an urge for uprising, and a confrontational manner that does not cater to wounds with snuggles and sympathy. It douses them with salt, shoots out fire and electricity. We’ve been stirred from the roots of our being with startling, rather disconcerting revelations about the less-than-honorable intentions of our government, and that’s exactly what needs to happen if the dynamics are going to change. The rich will only get richer and the poor poorer if people continue to play by the rules that have been set out for them.

Interesting that the eclipse is transiting in opposition Israel’s Neptune at 10 degrees Libra, also in the twelfth house, though Mercury Retrograde is closer to its mark. This is where we get to interpret how a similar transit affects two charts in very different ways, according to the overall pattern of each. In the case of Israel, a reckoning is occurring with regards to its leaders’ honesty. The twelfth house has long been considered ominous, often indicative of self-undoing and undermining of efforts. Prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu outright rejected political calls to assist Syrian refugees with the reasoning that Israel is “a very small country that lacks demographic and geographic depth.”  Apparently it’s easier to just build a fence along the eastern border with Jordan. Maybe a taller, brick wall of security against Syria would be more affordable? With inlaid jewels.

A recent survey indicates that even a large percentage of registered democrats do not approve of Obama’s plan to resettle 10,000 refugees within the USA. These citizens are concerned with a perceived threat to their own security, assuming that refugees are bringing the war along with them. However, there is already a silent, but deadly war taking place that has poisoned our minds for long enough.

The Solar Eclipse at 20 degrees of Virgo on the 12th/13th of September transited the USA’s Black Moon Lilith and Neptune between the ninth and tenth houses. Right now with the Sun in Libra conjunct the North Node and Black Moon Lilith we don’t have the luxury of wondering what to do, although taking action might seem scary. We’re either doing the shadow work that is required of us consciously or running like hell for the next sedative, tranquilizer, or some other form of escape from endless social anxiety.

“Foreign relations” have been turned inside out, coincidentally as things have come to look a lot like the scenes portrayed in the movie Idiocracy. I can’t even be bothered to take the time to make fun of Donald Trump because I’m waiting for the evil lurking in his shadows to jump out and wreak havoc. Until idiots like him no longer receive the platform they’ve been given, the joke is on us.

Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius (entered on December 23rd, backed into Scorpio June 14, reentered on September 17th) will reveal to us just how interconnected religion, politics, and the economy really are. Ever since I began to study the roots of our global monetary system which originated as a tool of enslavement, the more I have realized that the future of humanity depends on our ability to be authentic, cooperate with each other, and to honor the earth we live on with humility rather than to hoard our dwindling resources.

The blood moon eclipse’s transit to Syria’s Neptune could either bring an even deeper sense of disillusionment and devastation or it can uplift the spirits of those involved, offering hope for the future and renewed trust in all that is divine. Lately, a Retrograde Neptune in Pisces is certainly dissolving boundaries, making obvious that although scattered across the earth with different cultures, practices and beliefs we are all sharing the same air, standing on the same terra firma, and most of us have the same basic needs for food, shelter, and love.


Autumn Equinox 2015

We enter the Autumn season on September 23rd with the Sun in Libra joining the North Node, asteroid Juno and Black Moon Lilith, casting a subtle yet revealing light into the shadow side of relationships for healing, resolution, renewal, and in some cases release. Mercury, further along in Libra moves Retrograde while Libra’s ruling planet Venus makes her way out of a Retrograde shadow in Leo, forming a fire trine with Uranus in Aries and with asteroids Pallas Athene (goddess of art and war) and Eurynome (daughter of Oceanus, representing the sea) in Sagittarius. A warrior aspect of the divine feminine is in full effect, but not necessarily in a warring way. This week she is getting more of a kick out of expressing all her quirks, hilarity, virtuosity, daring, and creativity without holding back or offering any sort of apologies.

She is seeking to gain our undivided attention but without words. She is encouraging us to dance with life’s infinite possibilities, to look beneath the surface of things for answers and inspiration…

or as in the case of this peahen, to her own reflection…


after all, Mercury retrograde signals a time for looking within. There are many fascinating worlds within worlds, mirages within mirages, and we are made of billions of atoms, our lungs expanding and contracting as does the star system we inhabit.

Venus, the Morning Star, named after the goddess of love, beauty, and pleasure is regaining her equilibrium after a long violent storm and showing us how to do the same. Inconjunct to Chiron in Pisces, she wants us to play with the edginess we might be feeling, and not take every little uncomfortable thing so seriously. We would do well to appreciate our selves and pat ourselves on the back for coming as far as we have, surmounting obstacle after obstacle, through tears and laughter, living to tell the tales.

With the Moon void-of-course conjunct asteroid Ceres in Capricorn, the day begins with a bit of a heavy note, as people are extra sensitive to their surroundings, very much aware of any areas of lack or displacement. In the wake of the tragic loss of refugees, the aftermath of earthquakes and ferocious fires, we are faced with the sobering reality of our mortality, the fragility of our earthly shells. There is a silver lining to the dark cloud above us, but we must seek it out. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, but we must be willing to walk there. Jupiter in Virgo lends a pair of helping hands in cleaning up many of the messes we’ve found ourselves in. The asteroid Ostara, named after the goddess of Spring is also conjunct the Moon and Ceres, which makes for an interesting parallel of opposites, as it is the beginning of Spring in the southern hemisphere.

Capricorn’s ruling planet, Saturn has just recently reentered Sagittarius until December 2017, and political pressure is in the air. Most of of us have been warned at an early age to be careful of mixing religion and politics into conversations, but they are also shoved in our faces incessantly, without so much as offering a brief respite from a constant barrage of what we’re supposed to think, do, and accept as slaves and as truth. Well, that boat is about to topple over.

As for the Moon again, I have long had this theory that the VOC moons each vibrate certain frequencies in a sign that are quite different than when the moon is making major aspects, and not just in a “nothing will come of this” way. There are spiritual frequencies that become more accessible to those who are receptive to them. It has come to my attention that the VOC moon in Capricorn favors contact with Pan and the faerie realm, often more readily when the moon is not VOC in this sign. It is also believed by some that the autumn equinox and season is one in which contact with the elusive unicorn is more easily made.

This would probably include contact with all sorts of elusive creatures that seem strange to us in our realm of existence. So, those of you with gentle yet weary souls, gather your creature comforts, whether visible or imagined, and remember that no matter where you are or what you’re going through:

“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should…”  – Max Ehrmann

Cherry Plum….when you just cannot take it anymore

Prunus_cerasifera_LC0385Out of Bach’s 38 famous flower essences for vibrational healing, there is one in particular that addresses that moment when you feel as though you are about to snap – I mean to completely lose your cool and your marbles too. When the combined stresses of life seem far too great to cope with and you just can’t take it anymore, try taking a few drops of Cherry Plum as soon as possible, one of the essential ingredients of the five flower remedy known as Rescue Remedy. You could even take Rescue Remedy which is specifically for acute rather than ongoing stress. However, if you feel way past the point of even being rescued, Cherry Plum might be more of a direct hit.

Times are tough for many people right now, and emotional to say the least as Venus ruling all that is near and dear to us slowly comes out of a Retrograde post-shadow phase, Mercury who rules communication and mental functioning slows down to turn Retrograde squaring lord of the underworld Pluto and two upcoming eclipses that many believe herald the apocalypse appear to threaten all life on earth as we know it.

Indications that Cherry Plum could be useful for you:

  • on the verge of a nervous breakdown
  • at the edge of your rocker
  • an inner time bomb is about to explode
  • stretched to the breaking point
  • fear of losing sanity
  • fear of severely hurting others
  • fear of losing all self-control
  • post-war or post-traumatic syndrome/PTSD
  • suicidal thoughts and urges


  • Hard aspects to Pluto, by birth or by transit
  • Hard aspects to Mercury, birth or transit
  • Hard aspects to Neptune – especially Moon, Mercury or Mars
  • Mars in Scorpio with hard aspects


  • sudden, jerky, maniacal behavior
  • sudden antisocial mannerisms
  • intense pacing, panting, dilated pupils


  • fierce screaming fits
  • outbursts of rage
  • irrational emotional extremes

When it comes to flower essences, the essence itself is more powerful than the amount ingested. Four drops, not droppers are the average dose, about 2x daily, but one drop is sufficient. Therefore, frequency rather than large portions will have the stronger impact. If the essence is no longer needed one’s energetic field will usually just shrug it off. With Cherry Plum essence, it often seems to be the case that a single dose can make a tremendous difference.

If you don’t personally need this essence, God knows the collective consciousness of humanity does. If only a mist of flower essences would replace chemtrails…

Solar Eclipse in Virgo 9/12/15 – Healing Earth Magic

Solar Eclipses are extra potent New Moons in which the sun is obscured by the moon, as the moon appears to align itself directly between the sun and the earth. The impact of eclipses can be tremendous on multiple levels and are generally feared and looked upon by spiritual aspirants as negative. That’s because they stir things up and empty things out whether we’re ready to release them or not. They push us to piss or get off the pot.

The partial solar eclipse on September 12th/13th is 20 degrees of Virgo, in opposition to comet Chiron in Pisces, highlighting healing in all of its various forms. It is addressing almost all of our various woes and wounds – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. This earthy New Moon reflecting the Wounded Healer in the sign of karmic completion is most troubling for us in the areas where we are most accustomed to masking our pain rather than treating the cause – where we reach for a pill or a pacifier instead of fully acknowledging the grinding, pulsating, sometimes terrible, sometimes beautiful torment of life’s jagged edges. This is not meant to criticize those who need to medicate. It is a statement about our widespread addiction to distraction and avoidance of what life presents us with in its raw, unfiltered state.

As Chiron also represents the Wounded Child, our attention may directed to children in our lives that need healing or to our inner child that was neglected or abused. It’s time to take our inner child on an “Artist Date” (read The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron), explore nature, or to simply allow ourselves a return to innocence…

I just came home last night from a first-time adventure at Faerieworlds festival in Oregon, which was one of my inner child’s dreams come true!

This Solar Eclipse could be vastly liberating for those who dare to do rather than to merely dream, to answer with action rather than ask for permission, to boldly venture into the unknown, and to pierce the veils of illusion that perpetuate the cycles of disappointment and despair.

Juno forms a sextile to Saturn at his last degree of Scorpio, clearly indicating to us those who we would do well to work with in some way and those who we would best release. Juno has been in Virgo since June 30th, putting partnerships of both the romantic and business varieties through a process of purification, pressure cooking, and profound change.

Earth Magic

Saturn is doing a final cleanup in the sign of death and transformation, before entering Sagittarius on September 17th. Between now and then the ground is fertile for deep psychological and sexual healing. The Sun conjunct Juno in Virgo, trine Ceres in Capricorn also points to the way to more effective tools and methods for healing and repair than we have been aware of or have used in awhile. We are reconnecting with totem animals, root medicines, herbs and elixirs ~ all that encompasses the meaning and manifestation of true earth magic. Jupiter’s opposition to Neptune in Pisces also heightens the ability to give and receive healing to and from the earth and other dimensions. We are dancing with the elves (at least I can speak for mys‘elf!)!

Mercury is forming an opposition to its higher octave Uranus in Aries as the eclipse forms an inconjunct to Uranus, creating an itch for revolutionary and evolutionary change. As much as we attempt to fight and defend ourselves against the endless onslaught of actual and imagined attacks or to influence others to do as we think they ought to do, there is not much of anything we have any real control over in this world. However we can direct our energy in ways that are more conducive to wellbeing. We have consciousness and we have choice. It’s time to embrace the chaos within and around us and to recognize the divinity in disorder, the mystery of the Cosmos that our ordinary minds just cannot seem to grasp.

Relationship Review

On the same day that Saturn exits Scorpio (September 17th), Mercury turns Retrograde in Libra until October 9th. The planet of communication is beginning to slow down, having entered the pre-shadow phase on August 28th. While Venus was Retrograde in Leo from July 25th until September 6th we had a chance to review creative endeavors and release emotional entanglements involving finances, love, and partnerships. Venus remains in a post-shadow phase for exactly as long as Mercury moves Retrograde through Venus-ruled Libra, so the focus continues to be on sorting out relationship snags, healing old rifts, letting go of roles that have been played out, or people who no longer have an appropriate role to play in our lives. The planetary goddess of love and beauty enters Virgo on the 8th, and exits the post-shadow on the 9th.

Self Love & Forgiveness

With this Solar Eclipse in Virgo on September 12th we are metaphorically kneeling at the feet of an immensely radiant and ageless goddess in the in the guise of a haggard, hump-backed witch doctor, warts and all, begging for forgiveness and requesting cooperation in restoring harmony to the earth and each other. Perhaps this ugly projection of the feminine represents an disowned aspect of ourselves that we have finally – after much criticism and resistance have come to love. Whether burned at the stake in past lives or currently suffering from body and lifestyle image distortion due to cultural brainwashing, there is so much that has prevented us from even recognizing and experiencing who we really are. The flower essences of Crab Apple and Manzanita might be helpful over the next few days, assisting with self-acceptance and appreciation.

Another possible symbol of the times we are in is that of this gentleman comforting a cow in a field. Like the princess kissing the frog, we might be surprised where or what a bit of humility gets us.

“Be humble, for you are made of earth. Be noble, for you are made of stars.” – Serbian proverb
