I hope everyone is doing well and that the energies are treating you kindly. It's been rather intense over here on my end; the Lion's Gate energies made it rather tricky to sleep at night, despite feeling exhausted. From talking with my friends (and hearing stories shared from YouTubers), I'm not the only one that has been struggling. Even Tsuki slept a lot more than usual; there seemed to be a general lethargy in the air, making it feel like doing much of anything was too much effort. My grandma ended up passing late this weekend, too; it was sad, but considering her intense stubbornness and serious health issues. She basically was just experiencing an existence of suffering at that point, all because she refused to accept any help. Maybe her passing was due to the intense energies, maybe not. Regardless, if you want to learn more about the Lion's Gate energies, feel free to check out the videos below.
My dream recall was a little fuzzy Monday morning, but it involved school. I seemed to be in high school. I was in a math class. Some of the students didn't seem like they wanted to be there. One of my crystal bead bracelets seemed to have broken, and a couple of the beads were rolling around the classroom. We got some tests back. I had apparently thought I wasn't going to do too well on the one test, but I had gotten a perfect score. My classmates were impressed. We ended up leaving the class a bit late because our teacher hadn't fixed the time on the clock. I ended up stopping by the bathroom in the science building, but the whole building seemed to be under construction for some reason. Even the classrooms weren't ready with teachers still assembling desks and equipment. I couldn't remember which class I was supposed to go to next, and I couldn't find my schedule. The only thing I could find was a partial schedule that listed a couple of classes, like art with Mrs. Grimes. It was apparently lunchtime, and I debated whether I should go to the counselors to get a new schedule printed or not. Details got fuzzy; there was something about driving somewhere, but I wasn't able to recall any more once awake.
Dream recall was incredibly hazy Tuesday and Wednesday morning, and specific details were elusive. My dream seemed to be all over the place Wednesday night/Thursday morning. There was something about sleeping in a car and my mom driving me around during a somewhat mild snowstorm. There was something about being at some kind of ball game with April for some reason, and some kid was handing out Goldfish crackers. Then there was something about being at some preschool, and the little kids were wanting to hang out with me. The last thing I could remember was there being some kind of showdown between Frieza and Kusuo Saiki on a playground for some reason; Frieza had been surprised anyone could stand up to him when Kusuo decided to protect everyone else.
My dream was an odd amalgamation again Thursday night into Friday morning. From what I can remember, it involved being at the movie theater with April and Corliss to start. I ended up having my ticket number pulled at some kind of "half-time" event and won a Pokemon plushie that featured Chikarita and Squirtle I think. Someone else ended up winning a Bulbasaur. When we left the movie showing, there was some kind of buffet at the theater, and we saw my cousin Drake and April's mom. The bathrooms were quite messy (someone had poop on the floor), too. There was something about the theater shutting down and reopening at 6 am. There was something about being at church and looking through note. There was something else about the Fairly Odd Parents, specifically about Cosmo, Wanda, and Poof. The last thing I can recall is there being some kind of intense ending for the soap opera my mom has been watching for decades. It basically seemed like some group was going to kill all the characters off by gunpoint with some kind of master plan. From what I could tell, nobody knew why they were doing it, and they were unable to stop them. It got pretty intense.
My dream was a bit fuzzy when I woke up Saturday morning. From what I could remember, it involved my dad making some kind of coil vase using mostly white and a bit of blue clay. He seemed to be making it pretty big. It wasn't all that structurally sound and started to collapse in on itself. He pulled off some of the clay, giving it to my brother Adam and me, and then tried to salvage it. It didn't work out, so he decided to rework it into a clay ball, rolling it on my parents' bed for some reason. There was something else about this group causing trouble and trying to "recruit" people for initiation in some kind of bar or club, but the vibes were that they wanted to use people for nefarious purposes. More probably happened, but that's all I could remember once I woke up. Dream recall was a complete haze when I woke up this morning, but maybe that had something to do with the fact that my grandma passed at midnight and the fact that I had helped my mom out until about 2 in the morning.
It was a laid-back week of babysitting this week. The boys and I enjoyed chilling and chatting about games, anime, and announcements. The younger brother was showing me the game he was playing (there was something about beating these giant rats) and how he was excited about pre-ordering this new game. I picked the younger brother up from band camp, and we all enjoyed hanging out with their dogs.
I also ended up meeting up with April and Iris; we mainly hung out at the library. Little Iris launched herself at me in excitement when she spotted me, screaming my name. While we wanted to do more, the energies didn't feel aligned, and we were feeling so tired. We did end up getting some ice cream and chatting. Iris showed off her new hamsters, too (her last couple of hamsters apparently escaped). It was nice seeing them again, and we plan on meeting up again next week.
Tsuki was her typical goofy self, getting into all sorts of antics while looking adorable. She enjoyed plenty of cozy cat naps, whether on her chair, on her shelf, or on the couch. Tsuki also enjoyed sprawling out on her window shelf while birdwatching. She got into plenty of antics and shenanigans, such as launching herself at people like a great white shark, going full-on attack mode with bubbles, and even climbing inside of the fridge to go exploring. She's quite the goof, but she's extremely lovable and brightens our days.

Make sure you take time for some TLC and practice self-care. It feels like things are only going to get more heated and complicated as the year continues, so make sure you're prepared with the energy to handle anything life dishes out at you. There will be ups and downs, and remembering to embrace the process and let go of what we cannot control will help take us far. The cycles and seasons of life will ebb and flow, so get present with the moment, count your blessings, and remember what's most important. Time is a precious thing, so spend it in ways that truly bring you joy. You won't ever get it back, so live a life you find worthwhile. Have a wonderful weekend and stay blessed with love and light!
