Weekend Moon: Gemini & Cancer!

Start your weekend early on Friday March 7, 2014. A Mercury ruled Gemini Moon can make us chatty and social. We will be compelled to communicate – some way, somehow, it can be fun for us and/or just busy – or both. With dual faceted Air sign Gemini, variety rules.  ...more

Exercising 6 of my 9 lives

The reason I had a rough time concentrating at class last night was I was told I had skin cancer last night. I was glad that I had it to be at it, because it made me focus on something else.I managed to get an appointment today to find out I had Bowman’s carcinoma in situ, meaning that it was caught early.Not early enough that it could be frozen off, but it was cut out.I was glad, because my theory on cancer is to get it out of me, period!...more

Holding Back the Tears

Holding Back the Tears Yesterday, Jan. 28, was Barbra Watson-Riley’s birthday. Barbra would have been 46. Would have been, because we lost her last November to cancer. Yesterday, there were a lot of memories, pictures and thoughts posted about Barbra on various social media platforms. Looking at them, recalling fun times and viewing the pictures of Barbra with her husband and daughter, made yesterday an emotional day....more

Prepare For Full Moon in Cancer!

Wednesday, January 15, 2014, finds us with a Full Moon in the nurturing, sensitive Water sign of Cancer at 11:52 PM EST/ 8:52 PM PST. So, as a “New” Moon is best for beginning projects- starting something new, implementation of ideas – the “Full” phase (Moon opposes the Sun in the sky, as it  “wanes” on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters) is optimum for the finalization of projects, plans, etc. ...more

Hope is a Four Letter Word

 Last night I drove an hour and a half, straight from work - in traffic, to pick up Hugo from the boarder. We had to board Hugo for the last week and a half because unfortunately the newest edition to our family, came in heat. At first, Hugo was doing fine, it didn't seem to bother him. But suddenly, around a week and a half ago, he just couldn't stand it....more

i'm just a nurse

i will never let these words slip out of my mouth again, "i'm just a nurse." difficult shifts lately have left me reflecting on my job, my career, my calling... you see, your view of a nurse may be what mine was before i considered it as a "real" career option. i used to think nurses were just helpers; they gave meds, they cleaned up patients, they simply did as the doctor asked. while all that is true to some extent, nurses are so much more....more

Angels, they do exist! I know I have one looking after me.

For as long as I can remember I loved angels. At Christmas when I was very young my mother bought me my own angel to decorated our Christmas tree which started my collection of angels that I put out every year for Christmas.  So it isn't strange for me that I believe in angels.  Always have and always will.  They do exist, I know this for sure.  I can't prove it nor do I want to!  I just know. I think that angels are all around us we just have to be open to feeling their presence....more
