Throwing it back here to last weekend; Casually sitting inside a #superguppy, as you do. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

I've been feeling some weirddd vibes this weekend. Still pondering over my last post...Social media can be so one dimensional. A smoke screen if you will. I like to be humble, yet, earlier this week I smashed a big achievement but still, my energy is iffy. ๐Ÿ’ฏ
--
I'm guessing it's just heightened emotions/senses or clearly my journey is not complete - If this #airbus could jet off, I'd be gone! #itchyfeet. Check out my post {link-bio} if you fancy a read & comment โค๏ธ

I aim to be as real and honest in my life as possible. On all levels ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ However, society today seems to be living a faรงade. ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿป๐Ÿคณ๐Ÿผ Social media is guilty of sharing very filtered moments of life, giving an unrealistic perception of reality. These aren't virtues of gold.

Happiness cannot be attained by looking at people's glossed over highlight reel. What's so wrong with being true to you.. I honestly believe that can make a minority of authentic people, perhaps those who are fully aware of their vulnerabilities, feel quite disconnected and inadequate; I'm surely not alone in thinking this, am I- What do you think!?

A little positive Foxtato for ya today...I feel it's needed! ๐ŸฆŠ Has anyone had any exasperating days lately or is that just me!? My body is giving me many signs to guide me towards my highest good- So I'm going to listen to the cosmic tug.

Feeling tense, stagnant or anxious is tricky but sometimes, letting that muddy water disperse in its own time is for the best! My logic is back today and I'm going to try and ignore my sentimental feels and ride these waves keeping my passions in sight. Let's have a productive, fiery August! ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ”ฅ

๐Ÿƒ Ophelia ๐Ÿฅ€ One of my favourite #preraphaelite paintings. Despite the heart-wrenching meaning, I believe it to be simply exquisite!
--
Feeling Ophelia-esque today, a tad 'overwrought'; not in a negative way but in a challenging way. It's an energetic week of building up my life's temple of future achievements. Unlike the graceful but broken Ophelia, I don't see surrender. I see a pioneer who wishes to use their talents to the max. Remember, a death of something will always bring forth a new beginning... I'm so ready to transform mine.

Catching some sunny rays with my little miss ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ’› Far too obsessed with her...I don't know what's prettier, her or the flowers!! The joy of earth's animals is so profound & deep, I honestly feel their love soothing and protecting me. I say it alll the time, but get yourself among animals & nature. Trust that it'll improve your wellbeing, even if it's just a smidge! #magick

Emotional masochism anyone!? ๐Ÿ›ก Mid-year can be a tricky little thing; on one hand we have the harmonious, motivating and invigorating splurge of energy from the Solstice but on the other, people can feel overwrought with sensitivity and can cause the worry about your steps in life's next cycle. It can seem like one step forward & two back with feelings of "What shall I do next, have I done enough.." Why do we do this to ourselves? Self-sabotage & torment ourselves with worries when there is goodness there or to be found. Let the barriers down and don't be so serious: nourish your soul. It's all in diving timing people!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโœจ

Happy Summer Solstice time!! โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฆ†๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒณ

This brings forth fiery sensuality, light, hope, warmth, friendship, abundance and watery, sensitive emotions from #newmoon from Cancer. We're half way through the year which can flood us with some tricky astro alignments but instead of worrying about your next steps in life's next cycle, take heed & celebrate this auspicious time with some tips from Domnu, the summer Goddess whom brings compassion, authenticity, courage & healing
--
Wear colourful clothing with huge smiles. Drink flowery cordials. Listen to birdsong. Fill your home with summery scents and get yourself out in the sun, nature & water; It's soothing, grounding and tranquil...put your bare feet in to the earth. Trust me, it's divine! ๐Ÿ’›

๐Ÿ”ฎ๐ŸŒš A snap of our remarkable #strawberrymoon from 9th June. Her glory will work it's magic upon us whilst in my zodiac sign of #sagittarius: Symbolic of renewal, love, creativity, passion, independence & courage. ๐Ÿ“

June and July are auspicious months to raise your game & seek out what you want and grab it. It can be a tough ride but if you have goals to reach, now's the time to ride with purpose! The clouds are beautifully intertwining around the moon and the gothic backdrop, further enhancing the strong, positive astral energies~ Note the traffic light that coincidently had turned green ๐Ÿšฆ๐Ÿน Time to get on and get GO!

Splendid aroma coming from these beautiful roses in my sunny garden ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒž
--
It gets me thinking...Do you always feel like life comes up smelling of roses for you, or are you dished out a series of "universe challenges?!"
--
It's like these here gems, some are in full bloom and some are just poking through. I can kind've relate!! I have so much more to give, show & manifest. My life has been full of ups, downs and hiccups so far and my potential is still yet to be reached but my dreams are aplenty and always in motion. Perhaps my thoughts are stemming from the fact that's it's the first quarter of the new moon; searching into myself to check in on my progress of my intentions, so take the time to reconnect and listen to the vibrations. Surround yourself with family, friends, fairies and flowers and release some worries. ๐Ÿ•Š

It does bother me somewhat when you continue to try so hard yet often feel like you're getting nowhere fast! That said, we have to take stock and look at the vast achievements we've made in life; big or small. I may not be where I wish to be yet but I WILL get there. You will too ๐Ÿ’ซ

As the weather warms up, I love nothing more than a colourful salad; with a sprinkling of mature cheddar, grilled chicken & kettle chips (for naughtiness) ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿฅ—

#summersalad also aids with my #ibs flare-ups, which with some diet changes, haven't emerged in a while! Shed a few pounds too. Win win!

The brother and I at the beautiful #swallowfalls. Last summer. If ever you feel sad, look for moments like this. See just how exquisite our world is.. how nature makes you feel where you ought to belong and live. I'm blessed to have my family. ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿฆ‹ {please excuse our weary faces & my terrible hair; we'd walked miles!}
