So this is me in my little office with everything I need including Luna the Hamster, my stag picture which gives me so much strength when I look at it, and a witches broom (besom) whose purpose is to bring in creativity to my little space
I was going to talk about my working process today, however, it's Lunar Day 9 in the cycle and it's always a bitch. Every month I totally crash on this day. I run out of energy, motivation and enthusiasm....and there is nothing I can do about it
I have a VIP Facebook group where I share an advanced daily Mooscope and I know that the sources all pretty much agree that this is a doozy of a day. There's a lot of negativity associated with it along with difficulties and challenges
The Moonscope means I can prepare for this and always make sure not to arrange anything important on this day. This is why I love working with the Moon as the Lunar heads up is super helpful ⠀
So what do we do when the energies give us the poop end of the stick ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
* Forgive * And be grateful
If you take a look at my IG Stories today you will see that the Gratitude card came out again which makes a lot more sense now ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gratitude is an instant vibe raiser and if you're resisting making a note of 10 things you're grateful for right now then you need to do it more than you realise
Oh, and btw, I already know that lunar day 10 is much better than lunar day 9 so hang in there for a little bit longer ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
p.s if you would love access to my daily moonscopes and monthly lunar guidance then check out Moon Mail Monthly, there is a link in my bio which will take you to all the information you need to find out more about it

Throwback to Peter Dreher in studio, again! Just as Dreher shows devotion to a select subject matter, we as viewers can’t stop revisiting his practice. Dreher’s approach is one of dedication and repetition, in which he often paints the same object repeatedly over an extensive progression of time, revealing how the act of perceiving is so subjective to experience that each encounter with the same object (and thereby paintings of it) is new, despite familiarity. It’s as meditative to watch the process as it is captivating to consider the results.

I n my studio getting ready for teaching. I did a selfie as I managed to do a Japanese knotweed chignon. Yes I called it that. I was slightly proud.
A lovely morning with my very sweet students.
