The full worm moon peaks at 11:28am PST, March 28th, in the air sign, Libra.  According to the Farmer’s Almanac, “March’s full Moon goes by the name Worm Moon, which was originally thought to refer to the earthworms that appear as the soil warms in spring. This invites robins and other birds to feed—a true sign of spring!”
 
Here's what my favorite astrologists have to say about this full moon:
I chose Flamingo for this full moon because, of all the Earth’s creatures, this bird knows how to balance.  According to www.spirit-animals.com, Flamingo reminds us to, “Use your intuition to filter and discern what is happening in your life right now. Focus on the spiritual healing and lessons contained within.” “In this case, Flamingo symbolism is reminding you to get in touch with your emotions. It is a good idea to allow yourself to feel so that you can process your feelings. Furthermore, this spirit animal will enable you to grow  through releasing issues. In other words, if you bottle things up, you will find yourself reacting rather than acting appropriately. Therefore, the Flamingo meaning dictates that you must allow yourself to release your feelings so that you can come into balance again.” “Flamingo symbolism may be letting you know that it is time for you to get out and socialize. Therefore it is time to have some fun in your life. Moreover, socializing will help let go of stressful situations and coming to terms with changes in your life. Correspondingly, this bird also brings new ideas and options that will come to you while immersing yourself in the company of others. It will also allow you to find balance and gratitude for what you have. It will give you a greater appreciation of those around you.

Conversely, Flamingo symbolism may be pointing out that you are blending in a bit too well right now. In other words, you need to allow yourself to be different and to think for yourself. Thus, the Flamingo meaning prompts you to maintain your individuality within the crowds.”

Bronzite is known as a "stone of courtesy", allowing us to avoid judgment of others and emit a positive, friendly demeanor.  A grounding and protective stone, it repels and also sends back the negative energies to the sender.  Bronzite helps us to focus on and to find the best path to take, clearing confusions along the way.  It helps us make decisions and instills the courage to follow through with them.  Bronzite helps cultivate the courage to act on our thoughts and feelings.

We spent the entire month of March in and around Lake Havasu City, AZ.  During that time, we spent a few nights on the California side.  Here’s a view of Lake Havasu City just after sunset.  We had a dance party to Sofi Tucker shortly after this photo. 

My shipping station for packing up orders.

I have been using leftover fabric from Scott’s furry hats.  He has made and sold them at music festivals for over 13 years.  


We used our paddle boards on the lake and spent as much time on the beaches as possible. 

The water was nice and cool And the weather fluctuated between 70 - 90 degrees.  It’s truly an oasis in the desert.

I bought a new guitar!  I sold my acoustic, electrics and amp to move into the van.  I bought this Yamaha hybrid electric accoustic after playing in public for the first time in 10 years.  Our new friend, Kevin Jaxon, invited me to play a few of my songs the first night we met during his set at Burgers by the Bridge.  I played there 4 Sundays in a row thanks to him!  We got a chance to jam one night as well and he is magic on a guitar!  He has a band called Kevin Jaxon and Midnight Sun that plays rhythm and blues music every Tuesday night and Jeremy’s June Joint.  When I come back, he’s going to record some of my songs.

 

I played a few open mic nights at Finney’s which happens every Monday night.  Lake Havasu city has a great music scene and a lot of opportunities for artists.


Hanging out in Havasu.


The London Bridge is the center of the city.  The phone booth is also from London.  You can watch the boats, kayaks and paddle boarders traversing the canal under the bridge, which connects it to the island on the other side.

We got stuck in the gravel at a BLM site outside of LHC while visiting our friends, Stephanie and Travis and their kids, Zion and Skyanne.  They helped us dig out the gravel and build a cobblestone road.  Our other friends, Robert and Linda, pulled us out with their heavy duty truck.  We’re so grateful to have such amazing friends.  Both Stephanie and Linda have their own small businesses.  Stephanie wildcrafts potion tinctures that holistically heal on a mind, body and soul level.  She harvests everything herself and communes with the plants and her guides to create her potions.  I use her Hormonal Balance Potion and it has helped my cramps so much, it has transformed my period completely.  Her website is:

 Linda makes all natural soaps, candles and lotion bars.  I use her body butter, charcoal face soap and tobacco and cedar lotion bar.  She makes wonderful products bed is delving into the CBD realm.  Her website is:

Scott got our trailer organized so we have easier access to our jewelers’ benches.  I spent some time learning how to engrave and filling website orders and he made some new pieces with pave set stones.

I created this custom art piece for a man named Dave I met in Lake Havasu City.

Our last night in Lake Havasu City, AZ on the full moon.  We will miss this quirky, artsy desert oasis and look forward to coming back next year.  Now, we’re Tucson bound for the GEM SHOW!  We will be at the Miner’s Co-op showcase representing our new gemstone venture, Ra Stones!

 

I hope everyone enjoyed this full moon in Libra!  

Love and light to everyone!
