Happy 6th Birthday My Sweet Virgo Rabbit Queen
Today is a special day for one big soul in a sweet little bunny body. It’s Astrid’s birthday and the timing of it couldn’t be more aligned. She’s been so excited and this morning was no exception, as she ran around and awaited what goodies mom had for her. Anytime I pull out her crown she sits steadily, waiting for me to place it on top of her head and doesn’t try to shake it off. That’s a true queen for you!
Astrid’s sixth birthday falls within the window of our upcoming, early morning Virgo Super New Moon this Thursday, September 17th – a wonderful time for grounding energy in order to welcome in the new.
Virgo is the sign of the healer and invites us into a new relationship with self for wellness that ultimately supports service to others, by increasing our self-nurturing and care routines so we have an abundance to offer. And under this sign it comes easily through our opening to the power of nature in our lives. This is a wonderful opportunity for spending more time in nature, with animals, eating plant-rich foods and using herbal blends to help recharge and restore our energy.
All things Astrid is very good at and in fact for her birthday she received a big order of beautiful herbal blends, snacks, and fresh hay, along with yummies harvested from the Garden Tower. I’ve even prepared a few surprises like sunflower petals from the garden and her favorite wood and timothy hay mobile toys to toss around, chew and dine on.
Nourishing our digestive system is so supportive right now with light and healthy home-cooked meals to keep things flowing and clear, which translates to clarity of mind too.
So indeed assimilating of foods is like assimilating of ideas, emotions, patterns, beliefs, etc. and the more we can assist this, the clearer our energy fields.
Astrid knows this far too well as a rabbit with a sensitive digestive system. Bunnies need to be extra diligent with what they eat in order to keep things flowing and not create blockages. And if stress builds up, this affects that assimilation and everything can go downhill from there.
She’s experienced the processing of heavy things before and how it can create a bloating in the stomach. So she invites you to look at your life right now with vulnerable honesty and see where you might have things you need to process and digest – especially taking time with the emotions that are underlying so that they can fully receive their expression.
Are you holding onto anything that would serve you better to let go?
This window of the Virgo New Moon is an opportunity to focus on the details in your life and get serious about the changes that would be most beneficial to create greater ease and flow. By holding up a mirror to ourselves we can look with honesty at the things that are inviting us into a new experience that involves change from the inside out. Cleaning up the internal will free up the external. So you may discover wanting to fine-tune your life right now and look at the details more seriously that can set your course for success with your goals.
Astrid is great at reminding me of the things we need to adjust and refine with a little tug at my socks or pant leg, or moving her furniture and knocking down her ramp to get my attention. She and I are like one, so it’s helpful to me knowing everything is a shared experience so that I make adjustments immediately. Otherwise, she’ll respond and reflect that something’s out of balance. Knowing that I can affect her behavior, or even her health is extra motivation to stay on top of things.
This is also a great time to focus on organizing your life and building the steps for projects that will endure the test of time with the right amount of diligence you place on the little things right now as a foundation.
Astrid and I have been deeply entrenched in organizational projects, which included our shared Wonderland room/office where we mastermind fun, innovation, healing, and visions for the new. Astrid gets excited when I have everything laid out on the floor in the midst of clearing and restructuring/redesigning things. She’s a great project manager who oversees everything with happy energy. But she especially enjoys when it’s all in its new place – as do I!
She’s also been helping with the download of ideas on other project fronts. Astrid is the queen of many things.
A beautiful relationship between mind and body is a key dynamic for this New Moon too.
And as mentioned, Astrid is the best mirror for keeping these aligned, as she is quick to tell me otherwise. One of the things I love about her is her transparency and courage in speaking up. When body and mind, heart and soul, are in synergy, optimal experiences and results manifest.
Me being a Pisces and Astrid a Virgo is another way we compliment each other by anchoring both ends of the spectrum. As opposite signs on the Zodiac wheel we represent harmonious energies that although contrasting, are the perfect challenge for developing one’s potential.
Like the two fish of Pisces, they may seem to be opposing, but create wholeness as the other side of the same coin.
So this New Moon is supportive for our development and growth within the spectrum of these energies to explore.
And speaking of harmony, since this is Astrid’s sixth birthday, let’s look at the symbolism of that number, as Astrid demonstrates it in the photo above.
This includes six representing harmony, balance, soulful integration, perfect union, communication, sincerity, love, truth, enlightenment, naturally revealing solutions for us in a calm, unfolding manner, delicate diplomacy in sensitive matters, reliability, lighting our path in areas we require spiritual and mental balance, and encourages compassion and forgiveness. It’s also connected with the sacred and ancient hexagon symbol that has metaphysical and mystical meaning for spiritual attainment through integration.
These are perfect energies to feel into right now and so beautifully reflect the relationship between Astrid and I, as well as focuses that can benefit the collective to tune into and embody more.
I’m grateful for this reflection, as I celebrate the mutual love, respect, and honor shared between us.
Thank you Astrid for being such a guiding light and powerful force, as well as for being so committed to supporting the collective shifts to manifest a new reality on Earth.
I honor you and the role you accepted to always remind me to temper mission with love.
I’m grateful to have such a strong and loving soul in my life as you to walk beside me, help navigate the wild ride, keep me anchored to what’s most important, remind me of why we’re here, and to constantly encourage me to keep growing and going – while all the while sharing love and giggles. You know how to balance the strong and the sweet.
Happy birthday Astrid!!!!!!
I love you!
