It's a Merry May Flower Moon


As noted by Cole Prots of W Magazine, this past New Moon on the 7th/8th, was one of the “luckiest New Moons of the year.” I would highly concur with that statement. I must give a huge shout-out to my fellow creative team, superstar cast, and incredibly talented musicians, who helped make the musical I co-wrote the book for, “Shining in Misery: A King-Size Parody,” an amazing success at the special concert performance at 54 Below in NYC. We were graced with the presence of renowned writers and Tony-Award Winners David Malloy and Lin-Manuel Miranda, applauded by a thoroughly entertained audience, and written up extremely favorably, particularly by Nathan Johnson at Broadway World. Here’s a small glimpse of our incredible night:

 This positive energy carries over to the Full Flower Moon, shining bright tonight (and it looked lovely last night, too). We are currently in the sun sign of Gemini, and the moon resides in Sagittarius. Everyone I’ve spoken with recently has mentioned some whirlwind transitions in their lives, leading up to this point. Now is the opportune time for looking for the silver linings with necessary endings, standing back for perspective, and fully examining the big picture. As Prots puts it:

 “It presents us, individually and collectively, with a powerful opportunity to find closure and release from past experiences that might limit our present and future opportunities… This Full Moon is a beacon of hope, a time to clean your home, do cord-cutting, and take out the trash.”

 In other words, feel free to breathe a deep sigh of relief, relax and trust what comes next. The time for stress and worry is taking a back seat to possibility and good feelings. Creativity, inspiration, and a connection to natural beauty will also be highlighted during this period, according to Astrologer Bella Popa (Astro Bella Luna), for Parade Magazine (article by Morgan McMurrin). If your free spirit needs freeing, by all means, do so now.

 Get outside tonight and enjoy the feel of some moonglow on your skin. Stop to smell the flowers, dance a little, and celebrate everything that you have survived and accomplished thus far. Welcome the new adventures and opportunities that will now unfold to you with an open heart and mind.
