Week 6 of The 52 Project ~ First Open Studio

Writer. Artist. Words as important as images in my work.

Attended the first Open Studio for The 52 Project.

While hanging out in the Artist's Room I longed for the Writers Room. I longed for the quiet, the introspection, the written word, the self-examination. To me, this is sacred. The Artist's Room was N-O-I-S-Y! Piercing whistles could not get their attention. What was I doing here? I did manage to share my Lefty journal with others and take a look at some other journals. After a bit I left and headed over to the Writer's Room where I could breathe again. One room for extroverts and one for introverts. Interesting.

During these 52 weeks I am not defining myself or focusing on art sales/marketing. I am free. We'll see where it leads.

Full Moon in Sagittarius: Where past and present meet

Full Moon in Sagittarius by Kathy Crabbe Dear Creative Soul,

What's coming to fruition for you right now? If you set intentions on June 17 for the New Moon in Taurus look back at them now and take note. If you didn't then check in with your body and your higher self to find out what's going on.

Because it's Mercury Retrograde, don't expect a lot of forward motion until June 11 when Mercury goes direct, or better yet until June 27 when the shadow period is over.

Sagittarius rules abundance, aliens, dreams, long journeys, the upper legs, prayer, college teachers, turquoise and writers.

While the Moon is in Sag it's a good time to:

  • Seek new horizons
  • Explore worlds without maps
  • Quest!
  • Be outrageous
  • Look to the future
  • Seek freedom from all oppression

This Sag Full Moon makes me feel like crawling into a cave and soaking up some mineral wisdom. I'd bring a pencil, pen, Winsor Newton watercolor brushes, watercolor paper, gouache and some pigments made from an ancient formula.  I'd go back in time to when I was a sacred scribe; a monk; alone, but never lonely, never hungry, never thirsty, just filled with God/dess. This vision brings tears to my eyes.

I am still that monk, but in this lifetime my karmic mission is to express that depth of passion and wisdom in work that can touch others in an everyday way. I can live and create in the world, rather than outside of it. This I must remember.

If you're curious to delve further into your own past lives, I now offer Past Life Readings in person at The Learning Light Foundation in Anaheim (2nd Saturday of each month) and by phone. I also offer online readings accompanied by an 8-10 page written transcript (pdf).
