I hope everyone is doing well and that the energies have been treating you kindly. Things got rather intense this week. Sleep was rather elusive, and some people seemed pretty triggered. People have fallen through on their commitments and honoring their word, which was disappointing. I ended up driving over 11 hours last minute this weekend to help my friend get to her dad's funeral; the original family member that volunteered back out at the last second. It's really sad when you can't count on others; in all honesty, based on the energy, it felt as if the family member purposefully pulled the stunt, volunteering just to pull the rug out from under her. People really make things complicated, which baffles the heck out of me. Mean what you say and say what you mean. Things would be a lot simpler that way; granted, people may not always like what you have to say, but at least there would be no doubts about where you stand on the matter that way. Authenticity is key.
The moon was pretty intense Friday night during the drive, though. It started off as massive and so red, transitioning to orange, yellow, and pure white and shrinking in size as the drive continued. It also had this massive, colorful aura to it. It was quite interesting to witness. If you want to learn more about the recent super full moon in Aries, feel free to check out the videos below:
I was somewhat tired and out of it when I woke up Monday morning. It was a bit tempting to fall back asleep, but it wasn't too bad. My dream recall was veiled in a thick haze, though, so I had no idea what transpired. Waking up Tuesday was fairly easy as I felt decently well rested. Dream recall was fuzzy, but there was something about energy. I think it was about energy powering things (like positive energy boosting people's capabilities), bur specific details were elusive once in the waking world. Whatever it was happened to be pretty powerful and significant, though.
I was a bit groggy when I woke up Wednesday morning, but it wasn't too bad. My dream recall was somewhat muddled, but from what I could remember there was something about a battle/invasion from these lion/tiger/wild cat creatures. They had entered a house/building. I think others were determined to beat them, but I was just concerned with protecting myself/others from harm when they were lashing out. Not sure exactly what happened to them, but my dad appeared and started being a majorly rude jerk. He started talking down to me disrespectfully and bossing me around, expecting me to follow his orders without question. There was something about cleaning. I think I purposefully put something on the floor upside down as I left. As I was on my way, I could hear my dad freaking out about something that didn't go according to his wishes and heard him scream a huge "NOOOOOOO!" Not sure why, but that's the last thing I could remember.
I woke up pretty groggy Thursday morning, and I almost accidentally fell back asleep. I was so out of it, and dream recall was a complete blur. I woke up kind of out of it Friday morning, but from what I could remember, my dream took place in an education/daycare setting. I was looking after this group of kids, but my coworker in the dream did not seem to be very observant and struggled knowing where they were. I noticed one of the kids who happened to have special needs getting frustrated and went to check it out (coworker was oblivious). He had happened to see his teacher and had considered going after her because he wanted help playing music. I asked him if he wanted to play the CD, and he said yes, getting very excited. The other kids were engaged in creative pretend play and were putting on "movies." They were creating posters/advertisements about said "movies," and one of the groups was apparently creating the 16th installment in their series. The kids were excited to act out their "movies." More likely happened, but that's all I could remember once I woke up.
I didn't sleep much Friday night/Saturday morning, unfortunately, as I had been driving my friend out of state until late and then the hotel noises were keeping me up. From what I could remember, there was something about a kitten in my dream as well as chatting with my friend Corliss in the hotel room and repeatedly getting knocks on the door. We were confused, as we weren't expecting anyone, and when we would open the door, no one would be there. There was always something left at the door, though, like gifts (although, I couldn't remember what any of them were). It was strange but not in a bad way. Mostly unexpected.
Thankfully, I was able to get more sleep this morning (it was another late night of driving us back). After this week I definitely needed it (I was still feeling tired, though, after all the busyness and lack of sleep). My dream recall was kind of fuzzy, although I knew a lot happened. At one point Corliss and I were out and about driving and ended up in some neighborhood I didn't recognize. Weird things were happening with the sky. There were these lights that kind of resembled stars, but they were acting weird and moving around before straight up disappearing. I think Corliss and I got into a discussion about what they might have been since they obviously weren't stars. I know more happened with Corliss; I think we might have ended up at some kind of store. No idea what we were looking for, but whatever it was was important. More happened but details got murky. At one point we ended up traveling and anime characters got involved. We apparently were going to meet up with "Lizbeth" (Elizabeth) from Black Butler, and Sebastian greeted us at the door. We were taken to this forest, and there was some kind of hidden "settlement" behind some kind of energetic barrier/veil. The people living there didn't seem so great; they seemed pretty desperate, withered, and hungry. Some kid seemed to think we were "new recruits." This old man was running a fruit stall, and he made some announcement, offering up this copper piece that looked like a coin. All the residents' eyes lit up with a kind of hungry desperation; I'm pretty sure they would have done anything he asked to get their hands on it, even fight one another. Wasn't sure what his announcement was, but someone bumped into the man's stand, knocking a bunch of clementines to the ground. All the other residents were about ready to pounce on them and devour them, but the old man cracked down the whip and sternly informed them that they would have to pay for any of them that were taken. More definitely happened, but that's all I remembered once I woke up.
It was a fairly typical week of babysitting/tutoring with the boys. The younger brother has been finding issues with his social studies teacher; if what he's been telling me is true, I don't blame him--the teacher sounds disengaged, disinteresting, and not actually interested in teaching. Granted, it could just be his perspective, but he has a pretty good grip on things and actually enjoys school as a whole. Otherwise, it was full of conversations about anime, theories, Disney, video games, animals, and the like. They had some appointments to go to, but nothing crazy. Their puppy was being a complete nut, though, and launched himself into the air at me. He started acting completely crazy and wild. It was something else.
Tsuki was her typical adorable, lovable, goofy self, but she did miss me this weekend since I was away driving my friend (and I honestly missed her, too). She was so happy (yet miffed) when I returned late Saturday night. I was so exhausted after all the driving, but I couldn't help but give her all the attention she desperately wanted. It was so good to be back home. Tsuki loved her cozy cat naps, though, and had a blast with the new bird cat toy I bought her.

At the end of the day, make sure you make space and time for what matters most to you in your life. While on the one hand I would have preferred to get more of my typical routine done this past week, there are some things that matter more. For instance, my friend would have been stuck and unable to experience closure and healing that she needed. I couldn't do anything about her dad passing or the fact that her ride bailed on her last minute, but it was well within my power to drive her down (although it was a bit brutal with the timing of it all). I would hope someone would pull through for me if the situation was reversed.
Treat yourself and others with kindness. Allow time for compassion, joy, fun, and love. At the end of the day, the ends don't justify the means; how you treat others along your journey truly matters. Lift others up when you can. Find ways to show you care and sincerity, even if they're small acts, because sometimes it's the smallest acts that can have the most profound impact on others. You never know how much you mean to others around you; something that seems like nothing to you and no big deal could mean the world to someone else. Be gentle with yourself, give yourself grace, and extend the same courtesy to others. We're all doing the best we can. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend and stay blessed!
