Happy Earth Day!

After yesterday's emotional storms, like a rainbow, today offers signs of hope.  Reassurance from higher sources comes to help us see promises for the future.  For this we take in the spectrum of the colors of our lives - the brighter ones and the dimmer ones.  They aren't all bold and they aren't all dull.

But it can be a challenge, in these times, to see a rainbow  - to see hope.  It can be challenging to dwell in a joyous mindspace.  Our emotions can carry us off, ungrounding us.  We can become battered.

Today's energy, Earth Day/Sophia Day, offers the opportunity to strengthen our roots so that we are not powerless to the storms of the times.  This is not woo woo.  It's about anchoring our consciousness with the planet so we don't fly off into insanity.  People who are not connected in some way to the planet lose their minds under the force of the times.  Earth = sanity = healing.

Over the last few days, energy has been in place to bring back elements of the past - lost parts of ourselves.  Today, the energy turns toward past lives.  Memories, preferences, situations, and people seep through from past lives today.  So consider today's circumstances from the point of view of it being related to past lives.

Rainbows, past lives, and healing are all themes related to our friend Chiron, which is no surprise since the Sun has moved into Taurus and reaches the Chiron Point tomorrow (the degree of Chiron when it was discovered).

Be on the lookout for signs from nature.  Keep your copy of Animal Speak by Ted Andrews handy.  (I carry the Animal Speak pocket guide with me all the time.)  Messages also come in dreams.  Keep your owl eyes peeled.

The bottom line today is to stay open about the future.  Destiny is revealing itself.
