9th Birthday Celebrations for Cosmo & New Moon/MercuryRetrograde Reflections


Cosmo cozy on the bed last night with me after I got home – he reminds me of Bambi as a little fawn laying so sweetly in the thicket.



According to some paperwork I have from when I adopted Cosmo, his records indicate that today, nine years ago was his day of birth. Happy Birthday Cosmo!

Depending on your time zone, the New Moon in Earthy Taurus takes place tonight May 17th/May 18th and brings the element of love into focus, as well as grounding with Mother Earth for harmony, restoration, and balance.

How perfect is that for sweet Cosmo?!

Mercury Retrograde also kicks in at nearly the same time as the New Moon and will last through June 11th.

Going within and loving yourself and all else as a reflection of that is the key here.

Not to mention it’s a time for taking things lightly, having humor, and seeing the glass half full with an open heart….all things that Cosmo reflects so beautifully. As despite his “perceived limitations” he continues to give tons of love, exudes peace and contentment, and keeps on trucking along.

Retrogrades are not the villains they’re often made out to be…they help us to recognize the times for going within and reworking things, restrategizing, doing stuff behind the scenes, reevaluating, reviewing, rethinking, reconnecting, releasing, and rebuilding. And when we do, we can catapult ourselves by working with the energies and strategizing inwardly.

And with the New Moon in Taurus illuminating fresh starts that can be aided by the love we nurture into our relationships with ourselves, others, and all of life, while reconnecting deeply with our Earth Mother, we have the perfect energetic environment to really support the new that reflects and aligns most deeply with our essence.

As Astrologer Molly Hall shares:

“See what moves you, and what’s calling you home, for rest, solace, release…”

It’s a time of rooting deep, embracing all that is within – the dark and the light – and loving yourself into balanced fortitude.

And when you truly can find yourself feeling totally free, within what others may perceive as limitations, then you’ll truly understand freedom.

I also read that Mercury Retrogrades are excellent for reconnecting with old friends. So it’s pretty cool I will be traveling tomorrow in the wake of the New Moon and onset of Mercury Retrograde to go spend time with Laura, whom I haven’t seen for nearly 6 years. Couldn’t think of a better way to connect with this energy than with a dear, old/ancient friend, as we share a relaxing, restful, reflective, renewing, and Earthy week in the garden and nurtured by fresh, daily harvested veggie meals each day.

Happy Birthday to my precious Cosmo, who truly embodies this energy, and then some, so beautifully and purely! I love you to the Moon and beyond!

So grateful to be able to celebrate this day with you – you are a gift to my life and to many!
