Welcome Spring and welcome to my whimsical world. Since today is a day to celebrate renewal and new beginnings, I thought I might briefly write a short share on what started things rolling for me in my life that foreshadowed this new spiral of life I find myself journeying like many of you.
Although my parents were not fully aware of the totality of my name’s meaning at the time, or at least that I know of, I find it extraordinary that they chose one with the root being Titania – The Faery Queen. I know they wanted a strong name and one that could also be pronounced in French for our family in France without changing how it sounded. I know they knew it had Russian origins and I think their research, at that time, related it to “princess” or a Russian princess. I’m sure if I’m forgetting anything my mom will chime in since she reads my blogs. 😉 It was obviously meant to be.
Some of the things I did as a little girl that link to today include loving and talking to animals – having a way with them that was different and preferring their company, surrounding myself with stuffed animals that filled my bed and floor, easily entertaining myself in my imaginary world while I played on my own, drawing well at an early age and drawing animals mostly, writing creative stories especially about horses – then later in my early twenties I started writing children’s stories and a memoir that I never did anything with, taking ballet and always dancing and being on my toes, singing all the time and was in a choir, dreaming of magickal places, being musical and playing the piano, reading spiritual growth books around 14 after our mom introduced us, getting my very first furry animal companion – a rabbit, and having a lot of strange experiences and encounters I couldn’t explain.
Little by little, I stepped away from things, as the other half of the Pisces fish explored what was in the world of others’ realities. Yet, the wonderer fish half never disappeared – she simply wanted to swim up a different stream of energy, while the other pulled up another.
And eventually pieces of each were at war, or created separate worlds to live in.
After my last divorce, I started exploring more of what the little girl me had first introduced into my life, not simply as a separate or hidden world, but as the one world – recapturing the wanderlust, creative, whimsical, and spiritually inclined me that made connections to everything that moved through me.
Reiki, crystals, painting, teaching, more rabbits and a tortoise, sacred travel, integrating past lives, deeper experiences and continuation of extraterrestrial encounters, healing from the inside out, going vegan, immersing in Nature, and more, all hit around the same time of the ending of the marriage and embarking on my own.
And in experimenting with each part and different versions of how they channeled through, I honed in on what things I loved best, but also learned that it would take both of my fish halves, to create a life of peace and joy, ability to manifest, and truly live – not just survive.
Nature and the Cosmos, along with my rabbit companions, became my way-showers and immersing fully into a nomadic life on the road in an RV where I left an old me in a river up in Alberta, wiped the slate clean to return back to natural harmony.
In the end, after both fish explored, they found themselves not on separate streams, but in fact, on forks of the same stream that eventually led back together.
This is where I find myself now.
A place where painting and creating rabbit whimsy puts me in a place of joy and writing my second book with rabbits as the main characters – my tiny horses of today, challenges me to greater heights, while exposes my deepest vulnerabilities and truth.
To wander is to live in wonder and I’m definitely a wonderer.
My sweet friend, Mark, of Ravenwood Inspired asked if I could send him a photo of me and the two magickal wands he created for me, as part of “March meet the maker” on Instagram, because I was his first Instagram customer, and first Instagram friend. Mark and I have become dear friends since, or rather rekindled a sweet connection.
Anyway, this is the photo I sent him, along with two others, but we both agreed this one oozed Faery mischief. Or as Mark said, “I can feel the mischief radiating through cyberspace.”
It was taken the same day as the above photo, and both felt perfect for this post, as a full circle igniting of the new energy and bringing together those two fish parts within me to create harmony and manifest the world of whimsy and wonder, love and peace, and all things magickal that the little girl me stepped into this world dreaming of and the little girl me in woman’s body now, is beginning to make a reality.
It’s interesting how it took teal hair, creating a Wonderland room of all of my childhood dreams and loves, and going back to what I loved most as a child, to see a reflection of myself being most me. A portal to harmony.
And with the Super Full Moon in Libra, today on Spring Equinox, focusing on balance and the relationships to all things we have in life merging into focus, I feel clarity aligning for what’s to come.
Today created a reflection on everything and seeing myself in these photos spoke to a long journey ending and also just beginning.
Are you feeling the freshness of possibility in the air?
Have any of you struggled with parts of yourselves at war, only to discover they were meant to be great allies?
Wishing you a wondrous Spring, as we all sprout the seeds of our dreams and essence a little bit more each day.

Since I’ll likely not be posting a blog on my birthday or this weekend, I thought I’d share one today and to get the energetic ball rolling with the upcoming New Moon Solar Eclipse, which just so happens to fall on my birthday – February 26th. While I don’t have any grand plans this year, I’m feeling grateful for this grand gift itself of Cosmic alignment and there may also be a snow gift from Nature on my birthday and through the weekend, which all feels like a symbolic celebration in very literal ways for this Winter baby, Cosmic Pisces, Snow Faery. However this birthday unfolds, I will make it an intentional day, as I’ve learned it isn’t so much what we do, as the energy we carry forth through what we are doing.
But what a perfect timing to clear away the old, keep digging deep, making way for new beginnings, sharing your greatest hopes, and dreaming bigger than ever as a way of celebrating and honoring your journey.
I know for myself, I’ll be doing some more Reiki Healing Attunements on the 26th for my greatest intentions and biggest dreams I have yet to put forward, no matter how others may think I should be more realistic. That’s not exactly something a Pisces understands, although the Capricorn parts of me appreciate the caution. Yet for me that is interpreted more as making sure I’m aligning all parts of me with the essence of my dreams, making sure I can commit myself fully, understanding the responsibility that goes along with it, and the groundwork that will be needed with persevering and unwavering courage and strength.
I’ve been doing an amped up amount of Reiki Healing Attunements over the last few weeks – again a reminder if you have this tool in your toolbox – and have seen all of them except the long term ones come to fruition, although more clarity and steps have revealed themselves with the farther future ones too.
I have also been more willing in the last year or so to declare what I really want, no matter how big they seem or that they are truly just MY joys and desires, as I know that I matter too and I know that because I always intend everything for the highest good of all concerned, it is never selfish to ask from your heart what you want, as this inevitably will trickle to everyone we touch directly or indirectly. Plus, it is is powerful to voice your desires, without attachment or expectation, but simply as personal expression of what you feel and/or want.
I felt a big shift take place on the 22nd that asked me to anchor even more with the future potentials I’m creating and opened up greater ways to commit if in fact I want to manifest them. This provided different creative ideas and strategies I hadn’t thought of, to support my wanting to do more right now that I was feeling an unknown around how I could actually be investing into things even though it’s still off in the distance.
So, I will utilize the 26th, my renewal and rebirthing, along with the New Moon Eclipse to provide greater vision and roots with everything I definitively decide to anchor into and to “up the game” so to speak. Perhaps you might join in and do the same for your own intentions?
I do know that I have been having an increased momentum surge through me that needs precision and fine focus, which will continue to see me more immersed in creating, exercising more boundaries, and balancing my time and resources.
I love how this birthday is also my 44th, loving that double digit, master number and angelic presence surrounding the energy of this year and that I’ll be beginning a #2 personal year which speaks to peace, timing, nurturing, partnership, patience, intuition, trust, cooperation, and things not appearing on the outside while much is taking place in the internal world and foundationally.
I love what Numerologist, Christine DeLorey, shares about a 2 Year Cycle:
“The 2 year cycle is an inspiring twelve month journey in which you will find exciting connections between your past, your present, and your future. Eventually, you will be able to use this information to set an ambitious goal in motion. But make no mistake, what happens this year is going to take perseverance and, above all, great patience.
First, you must slow down and stop pushing to get results. What you want is going to take longer to achieve than expected, so tone down your high expectations of yourself and others, and pay patient and meticulous attention to the details of all situations.
You must learn to move more slowly, attentively, and with mutual interests in mind. If not, you will miss too many clues and connections to make any kind of measurable progress. Widen your lens. See a bigger picture. Discover your connection to everything that is influencing your life.
Of course, it can be difficult to slow down when you are so sure that you need to be moving faster, but until you do slow down – enough to see the finer and often overlooked details of your reality – you will have no idea of where you have come from, who you are becoming, where you are, what you’re doing, why you’re doing it, where you’re going, or the roles that others are playing in your life. Clarity is one of the principle gifts of the 2 year, just as long as you slow yourself down enough to be able to claim it.”
A perfect message for what had come to me this week and how I’ll be funneling my energies like my Tortoise, Gaia, with deliberate clarity and steadfast patience, taking into account the bigger picture and all seens and potential unforeseens, which my rabbit companion souls teach me with heightened senses, vision, and agility for transforming quickly when needed.
I love that I get to share my special day with a collective special day on this portal of possibility and potential, which seems appropriate for a collective Pisces soul.
This is a magickal and joyous energy we’ll be experiencing with opportunity to turn dreams into reality with enduring results and lasting happiness, by humbly honing in on our gifts for the greatest good of all concerned. Definitely a Solar Eclipse for making wishes come true. So we can all really go deep and ask what that wish is, or wishes are. Don’t be afraid to state it out loud, nor afraid to do what it takes to co-create it.
The Sun and Moon are also conjunct Neptune at this time which increases sensitivity, intuition, visions/premonitions, and empathy…something I’m hearing from many who are usually strong pillars of guidance and anchors for others. So be aware of nervous tension and anxiety, which can cause reactions versus responses. Keep personal integrity and responsibility at the forefront. And rise above the collective field so you can continue to do your thing and guide the way for others by standing in your personal frequency.
Rather than chaos pulling you in, let your inner peace draw others out of the chaos.
This is where boundaries come into play and conscious self-awareness to filter out what is and isn’t you.
Yet this doorway also provides very harmonious energy that can be harnessed for great benefit, not to mention access to deepest dreams, creativity, and imagination for manifesting.
There isn’t wrong choice, there’s simply choice. This can be a good time to get clarity on decisions and the momentum behind them to put them into action.
And this brings me around to responsibility. I shared this on social media today, but it feels important to add here, as more than ever this feels at the forefront of choices we make day in and day out.
Responsibility is key always and to be conscious of it consistently is necessary. Your actions, thoughts, words, shares, feelings, all have an impact on the collective in seen and unseen ways. And if you are in a role where others look to you as a guide in some way or if you are a leader or visionary as your path, responsibility is a moment-to-moment energy to temper all that you do with and choose from the place of greatest good to others while empowering/not enabling, and keeping the integrity of your message as consistent and pure as you can.
While everyone has choice, that also includes the choice to live responsibly and to hold your own frequency, regardless of other’s choices.
I’ve come to see over time how important one’s commitment to responsibility affects so much in your life. Not only will it support the things you desire creating, but also trickles out to how others will relate to you and want to cocreate with you. Think about the choices and commitments you make and the value impact they have in more ways than you may realize.
This is at the forefront of my intentions, dreams, and the energy I’m putting out there, tempered with a deeper kind of love I’ve come to experience that nudges limitations into greater expansiveness.
I can’t begin to share all that has transformed in my life over the course of it, let alone in the last year or two, but this rapid change seems to take place on a weekly and daily basis now, as accelerated experiences are embraced.
I know that so many of you can relate. It’s like a whole other person/or persons and worlds, right?!
And while none of the details really matter, I would like to take a moment to publicly express gratitude from the heart and core of my soul for everything I have chosen to go through at this collective time we share on Earth – the good, bad, ugly, thick and thin…or whatever you want to call it – simply experiences.
I didn’t actually think I would make it to this year and yet here I am because I chose another way to fulfill that which was unfulfilled. I chose a symbolic death instead of a literal one. I chose to take a leap, to have faith, to reinvent myself, to let go of everything, and to continue forward despite my soul family moving on, despite the invitations before me, and despite having no guarantee for what I was about to choose except knowing it is my heart’s joy.
And while I, or any of us, don’t know how much longer we may have in this embodiment, I do know that I can say I am truly living in every sense of the word without limitations and without regrets. I feel finally that I am merging my Cosmic and Earthly self.
My only regret would have been not to do what I’m doing now, which is immersing into the greater potentials and possibilities beyond what would have been soul expected of me due to the cycles and repetitive patterns I was repeating, fulfilling, and ultimately bringing around in a healthy way to close off karmically.
It would also have been a regret not to immerse into the simple and most valuable enjoyments and enrichments in the fullest possible way, not to immerse into the pure experience without any limiting ideas or other’s beliefs ruling my enjoyment of sensual living, not to immerse into more amplification of my personal frequency and vibration without hiding behind myself or holding my energy back…not to immerse into the pure harmony of it all, period.
While some may say I’ve been doing this, I would say not to the degree and greater consistency I am now, and this does and has made a huge difference.
So while I may never go back to things I once used to do, offer as service, or engage in as a human, I will be living with deeper conviction and clarity of my thread in the collective tapestry moment to moment.
44 feels like a year of building, business, being, and balance (4 B’s!) all centered around my passions and knowing the strength and support is there if I remain focused and dedicated.
And so I embrace this new doorway on the 26th, this portal of potential, with open heart and committed soul and welcome the fresh experiences that await my alignment.
Wishing everyone a creatively potent New Moon Solar Eclipse. I hope you will stretch yourself farther than you ever have into the seed of potential you have within you as your origin of being.
(FUN NOTE: When I hit publish the clock said 4:44 – gotta love it!)
