PEACE OUT 2016: A Visual Survey

sparkle party

Today is the day of my first Saturn Return.

HOORAY but also ARGH!

I woke up this morning with a herbal hangover, a sore neck, and bills to pay.

ISN’T GROWING OLDER SUPER

I have plenty to say about the super-fun journey of the Saturn Return, which I’m sure ‘ll be sharing you soon.

BUT TODAY, A FUN GAME!

My friend Gala Darling, the Virgo Queen, recently shared an end-of-year survey with a twist — each question must be answered with a picture instead of words.

I’M INTO IT.

I’m a sucker for end-of-the-year rituals that are fun, have an air of spell-casting, and prompt me to reflect deeply and intuitively on what’s past and what lies ahead. Something about distilling each answer down to one image engaged my brain in a very different way than if I were to attempt answering these questions in poetry or prose.

I LOVED IT.

If you do one of your own, or if you already have, please link to it in the comments below! I want to see!

LET’S DO IT!

HELL YEAH SPACE KITTEN

Wishing you all a very uneventful last few days of this shit-butt year. May we be blessed in the new year. May we tickle many baby kittens and laugh so hard we almost but not quite throw up. Let’s reclaim the world with kindness and compassion, feet planted firmly on the path of our soul’s true purpose.

Let the years we’re here be kind
Let our hearts, like doors, open wide
Settle our bones like wood over time
Give us bread, give us salt, give us wine

A littleΒ broken, a little new
We are the impact and the glue
Capable of more than we know,
We call this fixer upper home.

— Sleeping At Last, “North”

Thank you! I love you!

    Happy Saturn Return Paige! Hope its lessons are relatively easily absorbed (relative to mine, maybe – ha) and the ride is not *too* bumpy! All warm wishes for 2017… xxxx
