SHAPING THE SOLSTICE

AS THE STRAWBERRY FULL MOON ROSE ON THE SUMMER SOLSTICE LAST NIGHT (THE FIRST IN 68 YEARS), I FOUND MYSELF DRAWN TO PIECES THAT SANG IN GOLD, BRONZE, AND BLACK. METAL HAS AN INEXPLICABLE MAGNETISM SIMILAR TO THE TIDES AND MOON, WHERE THE ELEMENTS WORK IN SYNCOPATION WITH ONE ANOTHER AS SHOULD ANY SPACE EITHER NATURAL OR CONTRIVED.

MERCURY IN RETROGRADE

WITH THE CURRENT STATE OF MERCURY IN RETROGRADE (THE ACT OF BEING PULLED BACK IN TIME AWAY FROM THE EARTH) ALONG WITH THE LOSS OF MAGNETISM AND SENSE OF BALANCE, I'M FINDING MYSELF DRAWN TO GROUNDING OBJECTS THAT ENCOURAGE REFLECTION, MEDITATION, AND CREATIVITY.

EARTHY VIBES

TODAY'S OBJECTS OF DESIRE INCLUDE NEW SPRING ITEMS FROM A FEW OF MY BUDGET FRIENDLY GO TO'S AS WELL AS UNIQUE YET AFFORDABLE ITEMS THAT WILL CREATE INTRIGUE WITHIN ANY GIVEN SPACE. EACH ITEM IS MADE OF EITHER WOOD, WOOL, METAL, OR CERAMIC, WHICH LENDS ITSELF TO A WARM EARTHY VIBE. THESE ARE THE QUINTESSENTIAL MATERIALS TO WELCOME WARMER SPRING WEATHER. 

EQUINOX OBESESSIONS

ONE OF THE BEST THINGS ABOUT LIVING ON THE EAST COAST IS SEASONS, AND FALL IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE. THE COOLER WEATHER, CHANGING LEAVES, AND EVEN THE RAIN ARE WELCOMING STARTS TO A NEW BEGINNING. THE EQUINOX, FOLLOWED BY THE TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE OF A SUPERMOON OR "BLOODMOON", MADE FOR A MAGICAL INTRODUCTION TO THE SEASON THIS YEAR.  I LOVE THE FACT THAT STYLE AND TASTE TRANSITION WITH THE WEATHER, AND FALL MAKES ME WANT TO HOLE UP IN MY NEST WITH GIGANTIC BEAUTIFUL BOOKS, HOT TEA, CANDLES, AND HANDMADE CERAMICS. I'M A HUGE FAN OF NEUTRALS, AND THERE'S NOTHING BETTER TO EASE INTO WINTER THAN BEING SURROUNDED BY SHADES OF GREY, OFF-WHITE, AND OF COURSE BLACK.
