Today is Astrological Beltane

Beltane is a cross-quarter celebration, meaning it’s halfway between an Equinox and a Solstice (the other cross-quarters are Samhain, Imbolc, and Lughnasadh or Lammas).

Grief

If you’ve taken any of my classes, you may be familiar with the idea that different parts of the body correspond to specific processes we do through. Liver is anger, the neck is creativity, shoulders are the pressures we put on ourselves, low back pain can be emotions we don’t want to look at, and…
