Welcome February

Love is life, all, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.

Everything is, Everything exists, only because I love.


To My Valentine:

If apples were pears,

And peaches were plums,

And the rose had a

different name,

If tigers were bears

and fingers were thumbs,

I'd love you just the same.


Happy Valentines Day

Ground Hogs Day...

No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow

The captivating Rose, "the Queen of All Flowers," evokes a sense of wonder, mystery, and enchantment as it expresses perfection in its beauty. Steeped in magical energies, roses are a must have in every Witch's magical herb collection, as the magic within them is powerful, piercing, and full of depth. Roses are not only useful for loves spells; they can raise divinatory energies, unveil mysteries, provide protection and aid in matters of truth and things of beauty.

" Why does February feel like one big Tuesday?"


I have no idea why I find that quote so funny, and even apt. Poor old February gets such a bad rap. Maybe because it's so cold, dark and dreary. Yes, that might be it. While only 28 days it can feel endless. But personally, I do not mind February at all, though I am often rattled by its spelling.


February is often known for being a month dedicated to and all about love. But February is not only about valentines and sweethearts; it can also be a month for self-love and self-care, fostering relationships with family and friends, and loving others.

Self-love is about intentionally taking care of yourself and who you are. It’s about getting enough rest, and giving yourself the time, love and attention to recharge your mind, body, heart and soul. When you find yourself stressed out, impatient, and irritable with others, take time out for yourself.

This includes physically caring for yourself by eating healthy and exercising regularly. Exercise can also be a great time to bond and something many couples enjoy doing together.

In a month filled with gifts and poems and other romantic gestures, it’s easy to get a little anxious about whether you’ve found the perfect way to show someone that you care. But it doesn’t have to be about the size of a gift or the amount that you spend – simple acts can go a long way.

Leave a loving note on the kitchen counter next to the coffee pot. Stop by the grocery store for a bouquet of flowers – just because it’s a Tuesday. Say that you love your loved ones – every single day. Family and life are precious, so don’t wait for the 14th of the month to say it out loud.

Actively taking the time to focus on being your best self and focusing on your family and friends enables you to be more compassionate and giving, and to love others in a better way.

February is a month to celebrate our most treasured relationships. So, take time this February to focus on all the ways you can do this, and see all the reasons it’s known as the month of love.


Here in the Piedmont region January was quite bright, with snow covering everything, and the sun bouncing off it. We had three small coverings of snow in a matter of a week and a half. That is more than we have had in the past three years. We all bundled up, went outside, and made the most of the snow. Nothing like a good snowball fight with our son.
We are not much prepared for snow in this region. To see a snowplow is an uncommon sight. We do get cold temperatures which makes it a wonderful place for hearty soups and stews in front of the fireplace. We still have March and April which can bring some indifferent weather to this area of the country as well.

While January ended up a cold and wintry month it made for a more tranquil month for our family. We stayed in travelling very little and going out only for the necessities of life. It has been a good month to sit by the fireplace and catch up on some reading and yes binge watch television. Even our son got a few extra days as he was out of school due to the inclimate weather. Stay warm my friends. Sending love and thanks for your company. Have a safe and happy February.


With Love,

Ed

Tarot of the Month

Ed,

The month of February. We have a short month so take time to find love in everyone and everything you do. Gratitude is the name of the game. Treat yourself! Self-Love is True-Love.


The three cards pulled are for the 28 days. The first card being the first nine days, the second card being the next nine days, and the last card being the remaining ten days. (Faerie Tarot by Nathalie Hertz)


1st Card: Judgment:

his angel-fairy is the intermediary between God and men. Holding her trumpet with both hands, she is the messenger. Her flowing dress and translucent skin are symbols of purity, and victory of the spirit over matter. The angel of judgment shows us the way to renewal by accepting the truth, breaking from the past, and awakening our conscience. This card portrays spiritual triumph and inspiration. It teaches us to believe in ourselves, listen to our inner voice, and aspire to a loftier existence. Divinatory Meanings: A change, the unforeseen, the unexpected, a watershed event, rebirth, resurrection. Positive events, a letter, good news. Meetings, love at first sight. Success, independence, and protection. Unconsciousness, uncertainties, disillusions. Difficulty, complications, mediocrity. Bad news, stress.

2nd Card: The Fool:

Usually designated with the numeral 0, The Fool card represents both the beginning and the end. A small impish fairy, full of innocence and joy, walks among the branches on an eternal journey toward the truth. With the heart of a child and great sensitivity, the Fool’s companions are small animals like this garden dormouse. This imp is free of all ties with others. To some, the Fool seems insane; to others he is the master of his own destiny. In the tarot, the Fool speaks neither about failure, nor of success. Divinatory meaning: A sudden departure, unforeseen events, chance. Unconcern, inner personal evolution, new experiments, the unknown, adventure, spontaneity, intuition, genius. Uncertainty, immaturity, escape responsibilities, imprudence, negligence, madness, shallow promises, fraud.

3rd Card: Ten of Swords:

This fairy woman, bent under the weight of her sadness, represents pain and sorrow. The starless night sky and the barren landscape surrounding her are synonymous with desolation and darkness. The eight swords pointed towards her and the two planted in her wings increase her sorrow.

Divinatory Meanings: End of all hope. Loneliness, remorse, and tears. Troubles, anguishes, turmoil, disappointments, errors. Heartbreak, exhaustion, misfortune, bankruptcy. Profits and temporary luck and favor. Small improvement, relieved sorrows, but also false hopes. Patience is recommended.

Questions and Counsel

Dear Katelyn,


Why can I give better advice to others, but have no idea what to do in my own life?

- a confused friend

Hi Confused Friend!

I assure you everyone has asked this question to themselves. Me personally? I probably ask myself this question weekly. The answer is simple: emotional closeness.

It is easier for us to give advice because it’s not our lives; there isn’t the same emotional stake at play. It’s our own emotions towards our own lives that cloud our sense of judgement or intuition. My best advice to begin looking objectively… speak in the third person.

Instead of asking in internal dialogue “what should I do?” I would ask instead “what should Katelyn do?” Likewise, instead of “I should do XYZ” it would be “Katelyn should do XYZ.”

A therapist explained to me that by using our own names while speaking to ourselves rather than the pronoun “I” we can better control our feelings. It gives us the chance to see ourselves and situations similarly to how we see others and their situations.

Katelyn understands it’s not easy, but when it comes to personal objectivity and emotional detachment. what is, that's why we practice.

Practice on

Spiritual

February is a month in which we seek to maintain stability and calm after the continuous celebrations due at the beginning of the year. Without a doubt, dedicating a month of the year to purification is not bad at all. After a busy start to the year, it’s time to focus a little and clean up your body and mind. It is possible that with the January celebrations we have come into contact with many people charged with positive energy, but it is also certain that some of them are full of bad vibes.

February is a month of transition in which a change of air and sanitation of our inner life is sought. Once we have purified ourselves we will enjoy new energies with which to face the following months.

The spiritual significance of February is also linked to numerology. The power of numbers and their symbolism should not be overlooked.

On the vibrational side, March corresponds to the number 2. What does the number 2 mean? Well, one of the most common explanations behind this number is in your own actions.

People who spend a lot of their time helping others are likely to see this figure. Indeed, this means that their altruism is recognized but also, that they sometimes need to take a little more time for them.

This does not mean that you have to stop helping others, but rather that you have to distance yourself to take a break and take care of yourself. Obviously, the number 2 also has a link with your mission of introspection.

This number can appear when you feel like you are not helping people as much as you want, then it will help you find the energy you need. The angels are well aware that you are a pure, good and selfless person and they do not judge you.

They just remind you that you have to follow a certain path. The number 2 is just love: love for yourself, for your friends, your family and all of humanity.

Violets bloom in cold weather. Contemplating its bright petals on the snow is an image of inspiration and hope. Its fragrance is sweet and this flower has been used for centuries as a key ingredient for perfumes to help awaken love. It is very suitable to be adorned with it in the contemplative moments of February.

Wellness

~Always find a reason to laugh.

It may not add years to your life but will surely add life to your years. ~


"Your laughter is brilliantly yours. No one else can laugh the way you laugh."


Giggles, a 1960’s toy by Ideal, was a popular doll back in the day. When you opened and closed her arms, infectious giggling gushed out. I remember my sister having one and yes, we all giggled together.

Some say love is the universal language and others say music, but I say it’s laughter. Have you listened to the giggling melody of children? Laughter is music. Laughing is a natural part of life that is innate and babies begin smiling during the first weeks of life and laugh out loud within a few months. A child’s laugh is as unique as a snowflake; no two are the same. Snicker, chuckle, chortle, cackle.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Article 31) proclaimed play as a fundamental right of every child and playing children are laughing children. Of the many gifts bestowed upon humankind, I relish children’s laughter.

A rolling belly laugh ignites harmony like a musical symphony. Contagious joviality and elixir of optimism, laughter produces smiles of plenty. Laughter is a feel-good potion and a universal remedy that soothes our weary souls, finely tunes our attitude, and releases our captive anxiety. Distressing emotions such as worry, anger, and sadness melt away when you’re laughing.

What is laughter? An emotion? A reaction? A behavior? Whatever it is, both kids and adults need more of it. Laughing is an outlet for mental health, physical health, and spiritual health.

The physiological study of laughter is named Gelotology. Laughter increases intake of oxygen-rich air and stimulates lungs, heart, and muscles. Human beings laugh more with others than when alone. Research findings emphasize the social and conversational nature of laughter, indicating that it is a nonverbal method of communication and seems to stimulate a sense of emotional connection among individuals.

That’s why friends hang out together at parties, sporting events, and any excuse for a gathering. They want to experience laughter among comrades.

Will Rogers said, “An onion can make people cry but there’s never been a vegetable that can make people laugh.”

Start a “laughter circle” in your home. Call your family members together and tell jokes, make funny faces, or just laugh out loud until genuine jolliness visits. Videotape your laughing family and watch it when you’re having a stressful day. Use glee freely and often with your children.

YouTube videos of giggling infants, singing puppets, and funny animals are my go-to remedies. I remember being at a birthday party with our son. He was about seven months old. There were balloons everywhere. We would push the balloons to make them move and he would laugh and laugh at such a simple gesture. What a blessing it was to hear such a hearty laugh at such a young age.

Daily life is full of funny happenings and comical events. Amusing memories reside in our brain and visit on our darkest days bringing relief through the offering of laughter.

“From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere.” That’s what Dr. Seuss said.
