In ancient times women went off to a tent or place of isolation with other women during their moon cycles. This meant that their normal chores and duties were carried out by others.

And sometimes doing what is right comes with repercussions and consequences. Which also should be weighed. The equation may work out that the consequence is too great. Or the belief is too strong no matter the consequence.
We are spirits having a human (physical) experience. We cannot feed our children healthy meals, provide mental wellness through positive parenting practices or even medication and ignore the stones on their soul.

This is the one time that I think we should all consider a vaccine. I might also consider a vaccine if I was traveling to a country where it was recommended for a very specific risk.
Eight of Diamonds ♦️
She didn’t really seem like a Pisces from the article description about her life. She smoked until she was 117 and had a sort of witty dry sense of humor (like a Capricorn) that I don’t usually associate with sensitive Pisces.
The moon in this way, with its magnetic quality and its arrows is the compass of our lives. Learning to read it is helpful. It’s a multi- tool in our tool box that we need. A reflector of light, a magnet for a mate, and a compass showing us the direction in the night. Without it we would be lost, ungrounded. Like a balancing pendulum keeping our core from going too far in any one direction- it is the weight that pulls us back to center. The moon.
Age of Aquarius
