April 2013 Heretical Numerology Watch

I was thinking about the equations this month and the messages inherent.  And it reminded me of a true story.

There was a special school with beautiful trees.  They were shapely, beautiful and the best kind for climbing.  During lunch time and after school, children would often sit under their shade, eat lunch and snacks, hang from the lower branches and climb into the trees.  Sometimes little things would be hung from the branches to catch the wind and sun.

This had been a tradition for many years.  But one day a new principal came to the school and she was horrified by what she saw.  How could the teachers and parents of this school have allowed this to happen.  No wonder they needed a new principal!  The test scores might be high, but this was surely an unsafe school just waiting for disaster!   After all, a child could accidentally slip and be hurt and the school could be sued.  Even worse, what if a child pushed another child out of the tree!  The school was just lucky that it hadn’t happened yet.  What radical people this school was made up of!!!  Insane to let children run amok in such a dangerous situation.  Everyone knows you never let kids do this!  Especially at a school!  Never mind that there were always adults present.

As protests arose, parents and staff were told they were the most uncooperative and unmanageable people this principal had ever worked with.  Notes were compared with other principals in other districts, legal issues considered and judgments were made about the character of people from the school.  Memos were written, the board was notified, people were hired and the children came to school one day to find their beloved trees missing all their lower limbs, so that even an adult could no longer reach the lowest available branches.  There was no chance anyone might be tempted even to raise a child up to touch them.  And the school and its children would now be considered safe, even if against the wishes and will of the people who made up the community.

The lowest branches had always been the shadiest, and had contained so many memories.  But they were no longer there to provide shelter or joy.  The injured trees showed huge scars where their branches were now razed off.  And though many children tried (and some cried), after awhile no one wanted to have snacks or breaks there anymore.  Yes, thankfully the trees were not killed, but there were so many tears and many hurt feelings in an aftermath that would lead up to severe tension in the future, as unheard people and needs were devalued in a fell swoop.  Because someone didn’t see it the same way.

It’s a true story.  One we can learn from.  What might have been a better approach?  Decisions were made by an outsider to make the community safe according to what everyone “anywhere else” supposedly already logically and reasonably understood on pure principle.  But in the place of safety, hearts, relationships and even a few wills were broken.  People were wrongfully accused of being irresponsible and rebellious and no one would take time to observe just how safe the children truly were or weren’t.  The more parents tried to please their case, the more they were attacked.  The principal had the power of possible lawsuit on her side, and came from a perspective that didn’t even care for trees.  “It’s just a tree, why should this matter?  Why would anyone want to climb such a dangerous thing anyway?  Why is this even an issue?”  Even the fact that there were responsible adults always present, “policing their own community,” did not matter.  There was no acceptance of the idea that perhaps tree climbing and school could coexist.  And when emotions ran high, there was no sympathy either.  “What’s wrong with your people?  We didn’t completely cut the trees down.  We only took away the dangerous branches.  You can still have happy memories without the dangerous branches.”  It became a painful and emotional end with a lot of take and no give.  And it set the stage for continued upheaval in the school’s relationships from then on.

It would have been awesome if somehow the two sides came together with a new approach that preserved everything that everyone valued.

We face an energy pattern in April that will present us with much the same kind of scenarios.  Where rules, patience, harmony, balance, and new events, ideas and perspectives combine for our attention.  Where we need to consider the preservation of all values.

After the sluggish start we had to the 2013 year, April really becomes a month of full awakening for us.  Fundamental changes start making their need to exist, or actual presence, known.  Fundamental changes may also be the problem.  The western calendar year of 2013 is a 6 vibration.  A number that demands and desires harmony, balance and fairness.  6 is the Divine Mother Archetype.  Combined with April, the 4th month, we get the auspicious number of 10.  Sure, there’s a completion and beginning energy behind the number 10, but more notably is the presence of 0 – the God Power.  For all things came from No-Thing.

The tens (numbers followed by zeros) do accentuate the archetype they reduce to, such as in this case the number 1.  1 is the number of direction, the pioneer, discovery and new things as a whole.  But zero adds something extra in the tens.  The tens also hold an extra space for the presence of Guidance at all times.  Not that anyone is every abandoned – no one is.  But 10’s denote special attention from Spirit.  Some have considered it special protection and blessing.  And certainly it is.  But it is also a little more like a parent starting a child out on a new venture – like riding a bike for the first time – and always present with a ready hand for support and guidance.  Or children off to college, embarking on their new adventure into adulthood, but also always having a safe place to call home with their parents, where they can come home, reboot their laundry, and receive nurturing and advice.  Never abandoned, and definitely not alone and without resources.  But also, it’s not an energy that is always needed in this way.  Because eventually, children grow on to become parents and expert bike riders of their own, needing less and less immediate guidance and attention.  The presence of tens do not convey inexperience as souls, but they do denote the presence of new experiences.  Similarly I likewise find that those with 100 (note the double zeros) when applied to people tend to denote older souls who are new to the human experience or to the Earth experience.  Zeros show us where the plateau jumps, our gateways of transformation in our spiritual development, are.

So… back to April.  Wake up calls make themselves known here.  Our rules may not be in our best interest.  Or we are lacking discipline in areas that need it.  Harmony (real or perceived) may be challenged as it butts heads with the number of awakening.  But so will laws, institutions, foundations and patience.  April involves new ways of dealing with and approaching things – and when I say new, I mean NEW!  And not based on previous knowledge or work.  It means considering something that hasn’t been considered before.  It may also mean considering the danger of something new.  With the previous holding patterns present in the year, you can see why now things start feeling like they are speeding up and the year is finally really under way.  With the possibilities of challenging harmony and balance in this month, the answers lie not in looking at things in the same ways they always have been.  Age old arguments and ways of solving things will not provide the answers here.  Our ways of looking at and arguing about law will not help us here.  The answer is something that might seem completely radical, or just something that hasn’t considered before or in a long time.  And there’s a warning in the mix.  Our desire for balance and harmony must not result in simply conforming.  Conformity and illusions of harmony are challenged here.

“As we must account for every idle word, so must we account for every idle silence.”
– Benjamin Franklin

“By words we learn thoughts, and by thoughts we learn life.”
– Jean Baptiste Girard

“The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart.  For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.”
– Luke 6:45

“However many holy words you read, However many you speak, What good will they do you If you do not act on upon them?”
– Buddha

“Our words should be purrs instead of hisses.”
– Kathrine Palmer Peterson

“The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.”
– Dorothy Nevill

“A writer lives in awe of words for they can be cruel or kind, and they can change their meanings right in front of you. They pick up flavors and odors like butter in a refrigerator.”
– John Steinbeck

We started March with this message: “Lay a foundation of flexibility and wisdom. Earthquakes are only devastating to the ill-prepared. And opportunities are only realized when you’ve allowed your soul to be open to them.”

Beginning mid March, we see more volatility in social economic events and a more intensified energy pattern that plays out through April. First half of April in particular will feel the most punch. During this time we will feel the pinch of responsibilities, rules, taxes, government, structure and need for balance more than we usually would this time of year.

Numerologically, expect politics to also have some notable affect on outcomes for the year. This is a time when policies go right or wrong. It’s fine and dandy to have theories, but proof is always in the pudding.

This is also a time when structures will be tested. Will it stand up to an earth quake we haven’t seen yet? Or will it be like Katrina was, something we had no idea how to be prepared for in advance? This is both metaphorically and physically how this energy plays out. Expect your resolve to be tested. Expect your beliefs to be tested, both religious and politically. You say you believe “x.” Maybe it’s not what it’s cracked up to be. If you are presented with new information about something you believe deeply, will you regard it, or avoid/ignore it. Language will be tested. “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” (quote from The Princess Bride)

The energy of Justice and Libra (the Scales) will be stronger during this time, pushing each of us to play that balancing role of reserving judgment until the facts are all in. This is not the time to assume, jump the gun or make major decisions until we actually have an idea first what it’s all about. That means a little research, a little listening, a little thoughtfulness first. It also means sometimes the right thing is the unpopular thing or something that we are normally uncomfortable with. Lady Justice is a mother and she must be blind and fair. Will you be?

As tornado weather and fires seems to spread, my predictions on natural events through May continue to point to an open window for sudden and explosive events.  Nothing satisfies this description quite like a tornado.  Unlike a volcano or earthquake, tornadoes do not appear to slowly develop and fester over time to a final explosion.  In truth, as I went over calculations last month and analyzed the energy window I was picking up, I was thrown back into childhood memories of surviving Terrible Tuesday.  I have always carried a sense that I and my friends should have died that day, 32 years ago.  It’s been forever since I thought about that day, and here I was consumed for awhile with the memories. I still remember what the air tasted like.

I thought about writing about this last month, but since it was so vivid and personal, I felt my visions were tied to personal emotions and wanted to keep the air clear.  A tornado does not have to be the manifestation of this energy.  Still, I have not been surprised.  And the window is still open.

May 2011 is the most crucial month of the year for focus on evaluation and change based on logic, intelligence and experience.  Not only is it a good time to evaluate your direction, but also to analyze your reasons and find your sense of adventure.  Sometimes we simply need to just do something.  If you are feeling stuck, now is the time to un-stick.  If you tend to be inflexible, now’s the time to remember to pick your battles and flow.  This vibration will not tolerate stagnation or allow you to remain in stasis.  And May is one of the months in 2011 where each day’s vibration is felt a little more intensely.

In keeping with channeling this energy in positive ways, I’d like to borrow some wise words from my peers.  As good friends recently asked me, “We hear a lot of ‘ought to’s.’ What’s actually your joy? Not what you get satisfaction from, but actual joy.” 

If you are truly living in your joy, not following your sense of of satisfaction and accomplishment, then look elsewhere to channel the energy that demands evaluation and change.  But if you are not finding yourself in joy – pure joy – then take a look at this area.  What produces an actual joyous state for you?  What allows you to maintain peace?  And what in your life, no matter how passionate you feel, takes your peace away?  What always seems to flow and what never quite seems to iron out?  It’s time to weigh some things in the balance.  This need for evaluation, and shifts and changes born from that, will make itself known at a personal level as well as on the larger community and national scales.

OK, so how do you go about that for you?

I was thinking on the words to write about this and asked for guidance while on my drive to pick up the kids from school.  I’d barely finished the request in my mind when the vehicle in front of me started behaving unpredictably.  I had to react quickly and change lanes awkwardly, as both lanes at my disposal were full.  I like to use my cruise control, as it helps me maintain proper speed, but also not chance going over a speed limit.  I braked, maneuvered, got clear and reset the control.  Then, on another road, soon after I passed that car, another car slammed on their brakes for a sudden left turn in front of me.  This time not only was there another car just ahead to my right, but a cyclist on the same shoulder as well.  Again, I had to react quickly, brake suddenly and make an awkward lane change.  I turned onto yet another road, reset my cruise control and continued down the highway.  Yet another vehicle in the lane next to me began slowing down and speeding up erratically, causing some friction in the traffic flow.  Several cars around me seemed to be trying to figure out what to do with the pattern disruption.  Suddenly a pedestrian appeared on the shoulder on my side of the road and without looking tried to cross 55 mph traffic, while the person next to me seemed to be distracted.  Again, I disengaged my cruise control, and compensated.  As the highway curved to my right under a toll bridge, yet another car suddenly cut into my lane with less than a car length to spare.  Again, I compensated, thinking people sure were lucky I was as observant and as good of a driver as I was.  I hadn’t seen that many odd traffic patterns in less than 10 minutes time… I don’t think ever.  Good grief!  What was with people today?

And that’s when the words popped into my head.  “If you’d set your cruise control for 5 miles less than usual, none of this would have occurred.  When questions lie ahead, take a slower pace than you are capable of.”

It was a revelation.  As I pondered these thoughts turning onto the last road before the school, one last car exhibited unusual traffic behavior.  I looked at my speedometer and felt the truth.  A small reduction would have adjusted more easily.  On the way back, there were no more unusual traffic events.  No strange patterns, no pedestrians or cyclists.  Just a normal pattern I was used to and 5 miles slower than I usually go. Hanging just a tic back gave me an edge for more clarity.

I think therein was the key I asked for.

“Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.”
Albert Einstein

“We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.”

“Yes, know thyself: in great concerns or small,
Be this thy care, for this, my friend, is all.”

I’ve been going over calculations and found a reduction pattern that I missed and need to add corrections so far for the year.  These corrections are largely extensions of pattern already identified and for posterity’s sake (and if anyone wants to look back) they are as follows:

Jan 15-17: Arch of Influence
Feb 14-20: Arch of Influence
March 4 – 8: Arch of Influence
March 26 – April 3: Large Arch of Influence (this one’s a doozy I’m watching)

OK, catching up now…..

As we slide into April, we move into a period that demands communication, structure, responsibility, hard work, honor and laying ground work. However, we’ll continue to feel a pull of struggle with also trying to remain unstructured (read flexible) and allow freedom for shifts in energy and change. These are polarizations between the larger spheres of influence at work for the US as a whole, and the more compact spheres of influence for the Western world at large during this time period.  See the seeming dichotomy?  And as if that weren’t enough, it’s all wrapped up in a pretty karmic bow of all things related to honor, failure and success – umm, yeah, the public kind.  The world of glamour need watch out and international relations may be strained as the US struggles to remain true to its core essence while contending with the current and demanding wave.

Communication and leadership are KEY during this time.  With that leadership charge comes the honor theme and the whole karmic principle of “reap what you sow.”  There is no room for ignoring or hiding from any issues that involve communication, relationships for groups, partnerships, paperwork, finances, law, organization, etc..  If anything comes up in these areas, your attention needs to be full on and focused very heartily. And no cheating, as that will only blow up during this time. Confidence in who you are and what you believe are going to play a role. And foundations laid during this time will come to fruition likely sometime mid-summer.

Spring cleaning urges are pretty strong right now too as the whole craving for structure (also rules) balanced against freedom (also flexibility). There’s a reason and your focus is demanded. You can ride this wave well by being the go-getter who isn’t waiting around for someone else first.  A lot of folks will fail during this time. You (as someone who knows better and can) need to hold the reins. Partly because in a way you will save the “world.”  Partly because it is an opportunity being handed to you if you seize it.  Remember that cheating, dishonesty, mis-truths, etc. tend to be caught during windows like this.  That can be surprising sometimes as well, as it’s not always what you think. Also, that spring cleaning urge is an important one right now.  Clear the clutter, as it both organizes and frees you and it’s responsible, satisfying all energies demanding your focus during this time.  And make digital de-cluttering part of your chore list.  Did you know digital pack-rats and hording is becoming a concern due to energy consumption to store it all?  Read more about that here.  So hey, I’m doing it too – clean out your inbox and files!

Energies will be felt more intensely during this time and deceit will get a focus as it tends to be revealed.  Complicating this energy matrix is a Mercury retrograde beginning March 30 – April 23rd, along with it’s buffer of influence on either end.  Do not let the common attitudes about Merc retros cause you to miss out or neglect anything.  This is not a time to refrain from communicating.  It is a time that requires extra and more precise attention to it.  However, remember my quote from last month about finding the right answer by asking the right question? This is your key to communication as things get intense.  Use the reflective strengths present during this time to make your communication more effective.  And patience.  It may take more work than usual, so roll up your sleeves and just do it.

Keep in mind that tempers are likely to flare as these two seemingly opposite forces attempt to take center stage or butt heads.  The key is in the fact that they can coexist in the same space.  We can mind the rules and still leave room for flexibility, but there must be both, not one or the other.  Resist the dark side of these energies, impulsiveness and tyrany through control.

Now is a time more than ever to hold a focus. It won’t be easy, I’m not going to kid you. This kind of matrix of colliding energies is often when you see all sorts of things pop up for folks.  However, the energies don’t have to collide.  Remember when I spoke before about how everything that we perceive as Divine exists within paradox?  Balance is key and that focus.  Others will be turning to whoever seems to have their act together for direction.  Will it be you?

A note on natural events: In every year we have at least one month where each day’s vibrational totality equals its day number.  May is that month for 2011.  I believe the time between now and about mid-May is unfortunately one of the best times all year for explosive and even violently sudden events, as far as numbers are concerned.  I don’t want to see anyone hurt, but everyone take heed. And please have a disaster plan ready just in case.  Numerology affects the planet at large, so some areas will be more vulnerable than others, especially where tensions already exist.  I’d like for everyone to focus on the good that can come of anything during this time. Every time humanity is called upon to over come something, we grow.

Dates of Numerological Significance
(Notice this month we only have archs of influence, not singular dates. Larger windows of patterns in operation.)

March 26 – April 3: Large Arch of Influence (this one’s a doozy I’m watching)

March 30 – April 23: Mercury Retrograde
April 12-18: Numerological Arch of Influence
April 29 – May 2: Numerological Arch of Influence


As we wrap up the month of April, Mercury is currently in retrograde since April 18th and will go direct May 11 and  Mother’s Day is coming up May 9.

May and August are the challenge months for 2010 and as we come into May, the first full week entails an arch of influence that includes some especially intense energy on Monday, May 3rd, so please do take your time and be careful getting to work.  Auto collisions seem to spike on days with this kind of influence, at least in the Austin, TX area.

As a “challenge month” May entails questions of boundaries, maturity and honor.  “Karmic debt” can play a role not only on a personal level, but on a larger scale anywhere from local community to businesses to federal government.  It’s a time of reaping what has been previously sewn, for better or worse and a testing of character.  Questions the Universe will seek answers to include – do you stand for your honor/principles even when the chips are down and are you even sure what your principles are?  It’s always about operating from the Pure Heart.

As previously predicted, I expect a financial and systematic “balancing of the books” in community and government during this month, which can bleed into the last few days of April and beginning of June.  An opportunity will be presented to see what is working and what is not and realize the benefits or costs of each.  Though I generally write based on US energies, because that is where I live, this energy could play out and sweep world-wide.

I expect to see some businesses fail or make the news during this time, as well as challenges in business, government and leadership.  I also have expected a possible natural event of significance during this time.  I predicted back in January some possible volcanic energy during this time, which may have arrived a little earlier than I expected.  However, though the bleed-through begins in April, the full impact of May 2010’s energy has not yet arrived at the time of this writing.

Something in terms of boundaries, whether tangible like national borders, or intangible like government boundaries of operation, is going to spike somewhere during this time and draw attention.  Again, either it’s the one extreme of showing how well something is working and we realize the benefit of great work on the matter, or the other extreme of a demonstration of what isn’t working at all and consequences result.

Career, reputation and honor come to play during this time of challenge.  Financial adjustments in particular will play a significant role here.  I expect some market panic and perhaps some panic on the part of government and law.  Those in charge of economic efforts will see their efforts either succeed or fail here.  Same with companies.  I also expect news of the success or fail of either  anti-terror efforts and/or the success or fail of disaster response efforts.

Additionally, as we slide towards May, I continue to have strong feelings for the need for disaster preparedness and I ask everyone who reads my watches to please take the time to consider your emergency plans.  April’s watch has links to some good websites to help  you put together a plan if you have not done so.  So I suggest reading or re-reading last month’s watch.  Someone(s) reading this absolutely needs this message.  I don’t know who you are, but God bless and keep you and yours safe.

April is around the corner.  While March 2010 heralded a time to let our hair down and have some fun, April pulls out the ruler and straightens us back into line.

Daylight Savings arrived last week and now Spring is officially here this weekend.  Along with that, Spring Break in Central Texas is winding down as students prepare to put their noses back to the grind and finish out the year.  Tax season is upon us and Summer Break is only a couple months away.  In keeping with April’s numerological theme this year, it is indeed the time for planning, research and preparation.  And in looking at that, if I could sum it all up in one phrase, the theme for April is “In The Details.”

Now I realize a lot of you are quite aware of the fact that April is the 4th month of the year.  However far more than the vibration of 4 is present with April each year.  Just as I always tell my clients that they are a musical chord, not simply one number – the same goes for dates, months and years.

For those of you already super-organized and analytical, this is a time and space of energy where your talents can really flow.  Are you good at research?  Now is your time to really shine, whether at work or school.  Flow, flow, flow! Do you simply enjoy exploring the depths of the universe and spirituality (or for that matter, perhaps any subject) down to the toes just for yourself?  It will be a great time to learn something new then.  Time to buy that book you’ve been thinking about and totally soak it in.

Now, for those of you who carry personal vibrations that desire less studiousness and more freedom…. well, this time will feel less comfortable to you than of late.  Whether you like it or not, you need to buckle down and get into the nitty-gritty of things.  You have a research project due for work or school?  Follow your gut, but don’t half-ass it.  It won’t come out as great as you like.  My recommendation for you “free-flow” types is to do the research to satisfy the structural demands of the energies during this time and let the final composition be the flow for you.  In other words – know your stuff inside and out.  You need to go to the library, buy that book, talk to an expert, whatever it is that is required to give you the head knowledge you need.  Sorry guys, there’s no faking it during this time, even though I know you have a gift for it.  But when it comes to the presentation part of it, whether in written form or in front of a group, use an outline skeletal structure and then let your gut take over.  OK?  Finals and fiscal deadlines are coming up, so I hope this helps you.

Keep in mind that Mercury will go retrograde April 18th.  Get your term papers and research done before that.  Just because Mercury goes retrograde during this time will not lessen the demands for details and knowledge in what you do during this time.  It will just simply complicate it for you.  In the same vein – get your taxes done early and know that again – the details are important.  The space of energy flowing through April and May require “following the rules.”  And this energy is extra intense on the US right now as we enter the last lap of our 22 cycle, which expects a great deal of leadership in example from us.  Do your homework, prepare properly, be honest and do it right.

A note to add to this “follow the rules” aspect includes physical emotional things as well – such as get your rest, eat properly, take care of your relationships and stick to your principals.  It also means less party and more responsibility.  This can also mean setting boundaries for yourself as to when you say yes and when you say no, or picking a deadline that makes sense instead of pushing the limit.  When we ignore this energetic combo facing us now, the consequences won’t be comfortable.

Do your homework – the key to everything during this time, including major decisions, is In The Details.

Emergency Preparedness Plans

Something I’d like to bring up, as we consider the energetic influence of this time and I have predicted some weather between now and end of May.  (We’ve discussed whether there could be a human influence to it, but I still feel this has less to do with human intention and more to do with “chance.”)  And that is your emergency preparedness plans.  Do you have a plan should something happen?  A fire, a tornado, a gas leak, a hazardous spill, etc..  If you have kids, do they know what to do, where to go, what to look for?  Have you thought about having an emergency bag in your car so that if something were to happen, you’d at least have a change of clothes and something to eat?  These are normal considerations that everyone should be prepared for, but most forget.

I will likely go into detail at a later date, but to give you a personal example for illustration….

I still remember Terrible Tuesday, the day the tornadoes came to my town when I was a child.  My mother helped train folks in disaster preparedness and the previous night at a PTA meeting, she and her director talked to our school and parents about tornadoes, what to look for, where to go, what to expect.  The biggest thing I remembered from that meeting was the director talking about hail and rain and saying, “It’s not the rain and hail you need to be afraid of.  It’s when it suddenly stops.”  The very next day, I was standing at our back door, watching the rain and hail when it suddenly stopped.  My mom hung up the phone and yelled “Kids, hit the hallway!”  She managed to flip the breaker before the first crash.

I will tell you the rest of the story in another post and as this energy comes closer to sitting upon us.  It’s actually a very cool story full of miracles.  But after it was over, there were power lines everywhere, glass in the mattresses, houses gone, my friends from across the street were completely homeless and we lived in a hotel for days before we could come back and even begin to fix our home.

Are you prepared that if something happened, you know where your important information is?  Do you have a change of clothes, necessities and toiletries for your needs?  Do you have some cash handy and a comprehensive first aid kit that has more than band-aids in it?  Do you have food and water?  And keep in mind, it might not just be for you that you plan and prepare things for, but for the life of another.

The American Red Cross has excellent materials for emergency preparedness and provide a good place to start your planning and make sure you haven’t forgotten something.  You can find a variety of scenarios and checklists in Spanish and English there, as well as other international languages.  “FlyLady’s 11 Points to Preparedness for Evacuation” is also a very excellent place to begin thinking about what you’ll need in an emergency.  Make a point of looking at these links and consider how well prepared you are.  Don’t forget financial aspects and do consider the holistic approach – body, mind and spirit – as you sit down and get into the necessary details.

Recap for End of March

Additionally, since we are right at the end of March and Spring Break, I’ve included this excerpt from last month’s watch just to recap, because I do feel it’s important:

“I want to bring up the subject of accidents. This is something for adults, as well as kids.  Numerological energies falling during late March, especially after spring break, can be sort of intoxicating or volatile in nature.  What I mean is our potential for lack of self-control and sometimes irresponsible spontaneity.  Spring brings with it a pretty good feeling this year.  A small sense of relief, after a time many folks have felt a little starved for some fun and encouragement.  Enough that it could even be intoxicating one of these days.  Daydreaming and feeling a bit unfocused or zoned out may also occur.  The tendency during such time is to indulge a little too far, go overboard and get carried away, or forget responsibilities altogether.  Kids feel like Super Man or just aren’t paying attention, do silly things and get hurt.  College finals are over and celebrations and excitement go too far or late night term papers take their toll on the road.  Adults may throw caution to the wind and spend more than they should.

Whatever it is, the point is don’t find yourself feeling so good or zoned out in the moment that you lose your sensibilities, or even sense of mortality, and end up paying for it.   Don’t think kids are immune to this.  They stress inside when adults are stressed too.  And they do pick up on your sense of relief and daydreaming as well.  If you are a teacher or have kids, this is a good time to talk to them in advance about Spring Break and learning self-control in general.  That it’s good to be excited about breaks and good times and sunny days, but not to lose their common sense either.

There is a flip side to this energy potential as well, as energies during this time seek harmony at all cost, and that is to force a sense of relief by way of explosion.  As in things have been so stressful, “I can’t stands no more!” And the temptation may be to do something extreme or irrational.

My advice?  Just don’t.”
