At 3.21pm (approximately)
These delicious words arrived in my email in-box this morning, from the lovely and wise Julia:
Today at approx. 3.21pm Jupiter will move into the sign of Gemini for next 12 months. I have been feeling the power of the written word already returning over the last 2 months and now with the lucky planet of Jupiter setting up home in the sign of communication and writing we will see a beautiful return and honour of the magic of words. Around this exact point today voice out loud your intentions for the year ahead or even better, write them down. My only advice is to dream big - we are already seeing how expansive and transformative this year has been, open your heart to what you truly desire.
My bff was arriving at 3pm for a cup of tea, so I knew that I needed to get organised to make the most of this auspicious moment.
I gathered some paper and my little 'un's coloured markers, and asked her to come and sit at the dining table with me. Then I told her that we were going to write our dream lists. "Write or draw all the things that make you happy," I instructed.
We set about scribbling. I dreamed big and small, vague and specific, trying to stay open to delight and wonder. Maybe it was the coloured markers but the intention clearly emerged: I want to send my words out into the world. I want to have fun. I want a clear head and a light heart. I want homemade cocktails on Friday nights. I want beautiful energy. I want to dress fabulously. I want to paint, a lot.
I looked over and asked my little 'un how she was filling her page.
"Lots of kisses and cuddles here, Mummy. Because they make me so happy. Oh, and a bow and arrow. Just like Arietty."
Somehow, she always manages to nail it, that girl.
Because, really, if I get to make a list like this with my beautiful daughter every time there is an auspicious astrological moment, then I will have had a very good life indeed.
