Happy New Moon in Aries and Solar Eclipse!

I hope everyone is doing well and that energies have treated you kindly. A very happy birthday to my best friend, April; I hope your birthday was wonderful! Sleep has been a real challenge this past week, and I'm guessing it had to do with the new moon and solar eclipse at the beginning of the week; I did hear from others that they've been struggling with energy levels, sleep, motivation, and the like. Hopefully the upcoming week will be calmer and bring a bit of ease for people. If you'd like to learn about the recent new moon in Aries and solar eclipse, feel free to check out the following videos:





Sleep was a tricky thing Sunday night/Monday morning. I wasn't feeling tired for quite some time, and despite attempts, I wasn't able to sleep. The fact that a very noisy helicopter was hanging around and that the birds decided to activate themselves and all of their chirping really early in the morning did not help matters. Not sure if the sleep struggles were due to the new moon and solar eclipse energies or what, but it wasn't all that fun. Monday night/Tuesday morning was better in the sense that I was actually able to get some sleep, but it was still a considerable struggle falling asleep. Dream recall was veiled in a complete haze; I wasn't even sure if I did dream or not. Waking up on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning was more of the same; had been able to get some sleep, but dream recall was fuzzy and unclear.


I was able to get some more sleep Friday night/Saturday morning, but I kept waking up, struggling to stay asleep. I tried my best to get the rest my body needed, but there seemed to be some kind of interference, and dream recall was just so hazy. Sleep wasn't much better Saturday night/this morning. I tried to sleep, but it just felt like I was getting laughed in the face. I could remember some bits and pieces, like being at some hotel with Corliss and the keycard being some kind of ring for some reason. Then there was some kind of like space battle and this one guy seemed kind of piratey. He seemed to have some kind of relationship with the queen and another like pirate or something. It was pretty confusing. There seemed to be some weird part involving Ralph from Wreck-it Ralph coming into the real world and playing with kids dressed up in some kind of suit. I just woke up confused and so tired. I tried to go back to sleep for hours, but no luck.


The boys are starting to feel the end-of-the-year lethargy with school. It's not like they hate school, per se, but they are getting real tired of being there all week (and I don't blame them). There's definitely been more drag in their step when leaving in the morning. They do enjoy things about school, though, and the younger brother loves telling me about all the things they're making in his cooking class. It's just getting to that point in the year where everyone is feeling more tired from all the time and effort put in. I certainly feel it, but that also is heavily influenced by the fact that sleep does not want to cooperate.


Tsuki was her typical self, living the cat life of cozy cat naps, antics, and shenanigans. She was often found on her favorite chair and the back of the couch, snuggled and comfy. Tsuki would follow me around, engage in sneak attacks, snuggle, and just be an all around goof. She played in boxes, rolled around on the carpet (dragging herself across the floor), waited on the back of the couch for me to come home, tried to climb the walls, and so many other antics. Such a good kitty.

Take time to be gentle with yourself. It can be all too easy to fall into the trap of comparison and feeling like you "should be further," "should be able to do more," should this, that, and the other. Some days are more challenging than others. Sometimes life feels like it's extreme hard mode. You're still here; you haven't given up, so give yourself more credit. Even if things are panning out the way you hoped, your story isn't over yet. It's okay to press pause and try again. It doesn't make you a failure. All anyone can do at any given time is their best, and sometimes the best someone can do is crawl out of bed, get some food and water, take a shower, and breathe. That doesn't make you less. It's okay to rest and take time for self-care. It's okay to take things at your own pace; each day will vary, so don't beat yourself out about it. Yes, it's important to give back to the world and pour from your cup, but if all you ever do is empty your cup for others without replenishing, your cup will run dry. Take time to refill your cup. You're worthy and deserving; you're not a bad person for having needs--it's something completely normal for humans. Be kind to yourself. You matter, and the world is a better place with you here in it. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend and take care!
