Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice began late last night at 9:24 pm [PST] and early this morning at 12:24am [EST]. We are going to experience the longest day of sunlight in the year today in the Tropic of Cancer north of the equator. As we move into the zodiac sign of Cancer on the 22nd you'll need to take note of what your emotions are telling you. Cancerian's are the mother of the zodiac, so this will be a month of caring, sharing and great compassion. Take care of yourself, be aware of your emotions and be patient with yourself. On June 23rd we move into a New Moon which is full of energy and ambition - it's a great time to meditate on your dreams and intentions. Summer is my favorite time of year and I endlessly dream of warmer climates and now Portland has finally warmed up. I hope you are feeling summery today - go get your vitamin D and soak up the sun!

Believe in Yourself

Believing in yourself... in some cases in your life, it can be easier said than done. Fully believing in yourself is most of the battle in anything you approach in your life. Believing in yourself is equivalent to adoring yourself - and that is more than ok. Believing in yourself allows you to be a deliberate creator of your experience. You can be, do and have anything you want if you believe it. If you're frustrated with something not becoming a reality yet, just hang on, put yourself in a place of joy in the moment, do your thing, be worthy and what you want will eventually come. If you can, try not thinking about what you want "not" being there because it sucks the joy out of the journey. If you can't get to a place of believing in yourself, don't fret. Make peace with where you are and things will come in as you start to trust. Everything has a way of taking care of itself. Believe in yourself.

Message For Today

I can't ever say this enough... be mindful of your thoughts and how you feel. There's a lot of negativity going on in the world right now. You can either observe it and get swept up in it; or observe it and decide how you are going to feel about it. Choosing your thoughts and find your inner knowing that is always inside you ready to tap into it. 

Today's art is about that feeling. I rarely get to do a male portrait when I do custom portraits, so this was real fun. I added a dragonfly on top of his shoulder because their animal totem symbolizes being mindful of your thoughts and feelings, change, transformation, joy and lightness of being. This blog and my instagram are a place where I create things that I enjoy. I sincerely hope my words and my art inspire you to stay in your peaceful inner knowing today.

Day Off Inspiration

We took a road trip out of the city on our day off on Monday. We are lucky enough here in Portland where you can drive about an hour or so outside of the city and it drops off into wide open plains. I love going to these wide open places because I love how quiet, how open and how still it is. It's a place where you can just be. Where you can enjoy the sounds of nature and see really cool animals like deer, horses, raven, eagles and foxes. There was an old ranch on the trail we hiked and this was yesterday's inspiration from the open plains filled with wildflowers. Sitting on top calling to us were two Ravens. Raven animal totems symbolize magic, healing, creation and the bringer of change. I hope you are feeling inspired today.

Today's Numerology For You

A couple of days ago marked the four year anniversary of this blog. I'm pretty happy I've been going strong writing and drawing weekly, for this long. This blog started out as a combination of readings and illustrations. In honor of that, I wanted to share a little numerology reading for today. The date of today adds up in numerology to total the number 3. This is a great number in numerology. Three is a day of accomplishment and cooperation when it comes to new projects. Problems are handled well and quickly ended. This is a good day for meeting people, travel, and fun.
