When something so insignificant brings great joy.

Day Five – Mini Release Program
by Silver RavenWolf

Greetings to ya and super big hugs!  So we are in Day Five here at the hearthstone where they have closed everything in our area that is non-essential.  The dog and I spent part of the afternoon sitting in the sun meditating on healing, enjoying the unusually warm temperatures while my husband played a video game and watched cartoons in his man-cave.  Sometimes you’ve gotta “just chill”.

I’ve purposefully been a little wishy-washy in posting the Moon in the Signs and other astrological information in this mini-program because sometimes the information becomes a deterrent for folks who join late in the game.  They think, “Oh, that says the moon was in such-and-such, so I guess I can’t do this program because that was days ago,” which isn’t the case at all.  Granted, I live by the moon in the signs and have found the information to be highly impactful if you just pay attention to the energy.  When you can use the vibrations to your best advantage everything seems to flow delightfully well.  Even crap-tacular situations can be mitigated (to a point).  And let me tell you when the moon is void (even though some signs work somewhat), it is such a relief from worry when something unpleasant goes down that could have really nasty conclusions, and you say to yourself, “Moon Void — nothing will come of it.  Breathe.  Breathe.  Breathe.”  No kidding.  I’m a Virgo.  Our brains constantly snot worry.

Sometimes during the Great Release Program, I’ll talk to you about what is going on in the heavens so that you can be aware of the amazing power you have at your fingertips.  For example, right now, with Mars churning through a stellium this week and the next and won’t conclude until the 31st of March (interesting, right?) (a stellium is a combination of three or more planets in close proximity in a sign or house) and all these planets being what I call “heavy-hitters” it is no wonder that activity (Mars) is kicking up a tornado of change as he comes in vibratory reach of each of those planets.   Of course, the government came down like Thor’s Hammer — all those planets are in Capricorn, sheesh!  Mars is rolling over Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn.  Here the meet-up with Jupiter showed us that some of the decisions were probably knee-jerk excessive and not all that beneficial — only time will really tell.  Generally, Jupiter is considered the Great Benefic — so putting him to work in your life for good fortune and joy is a great way to use that glittering Mars energy.  Some will fall in love this week, and others totally out of it!   Domestic Violence, given the quarantine, will be no surprise.  Pluto is all about transformation and so there will be a push to change where before folks were just sitting and finding excuses to take action, and Saturn waves the two-headed banner of reward and restriction (yup, can be both) at the very end.  Yup.  There is strong energy to use if you target correctly.

So, what all this basically means is that this is a REALLY good time to make those changes in your life that you’ve been grumbling about.  And, the universe is gonna help ya.   You’ll either get with the program, or be run over by the energy.  You always have a choice.

Today’s Challenge:  The main challenge today, is to get moving because I betcha some of you spent way too much time on the computer this week.  Therefore, choose any task that will make you move.  I’m going to wash out the refrigerator.  Boring but useful.

Mrs. Pickles Wish Jar — With all that Mars energy, I’ve created a simple drawing for you to use.  Spring Equinox and the few days thereafter are great for Wishes.  Print out the drawing below.  Follow the instructions on the drawing.

Coronavirus and Domestic Violence by Silver RavenWolf

In 2012 I wrote on this blog about my experiences as a domestic violence victim/survivor.  As the news began rolling in last week focusing on self-quarantine, I started getting nervous.  And, not for myself.  My mind raced to those bad days and what would have happened, how worse it could have been for me if I had been forced to stay in my apartment with that physically and emotionally abusive piece of garbage.

Quarantine means stuck.  Stuck means violence.  Violence means pain.  Pain leads to broken bones.  Bodily damage leads to death.  Hey!  Your brain goes there if you have survived domestic violence.

And then the mandated shut-downs began to unfold.  I know the absolute terror the victims are going through.  “The Greater Good” is not thinking of them.   Everyone is all in a tizzy over getting sick.  Of having enough to eat.  Of figuring out how they are going to pay their bills now that they spent all their money on stocking food.

For the domestic violence victim — the reality is different.  The Shining is real.  Who has to be afraid of a virus when there is a human monster lurking in the house?  Which is more dangerous?

If this is you.  If you are a victim.  If you or your family are in danger — please seek assistance!

Here’s what Domestic Abuse Advocates have heard from some survivors reaching out copied from their website:

  • “A chatter mentioned that the abuser was using the virus as a scare tactic to keep the survivor away from their kids.”
  • A chatter said the abuser was using COVID-19 as a scare tactic so that they would not visit family.”
  • “A health professional still living with their abuser called and said they were physically abused that night because their abuser was sure they were trying to infect them with COVID-19.

Here’s how COVID-19 could uniquely impact intimate partner violence survivors:

  • Abusive partners may withhold necessary items, such as hand sanitizer or disinfectants.
  • Abusive partners may share misinformation about the pandemic to control or frighten survivors, or to prevent them from seeking appropriate medical attention if they have symptoms.
  • Abusive partners may withhold insurance cards, threaten to cancel insurance, or prevent survivors from seeking medical attention if they need it.
  • Programs that serve survivors may be significantly impacted –- shelters may be full or may even stop intakes altogether. Survivors may also fear entering shelter because of being in close quarters with groups of people.
  • Survivors who are older or have chronic heart or lung conditions may be at increased risk in public places where they would typically get support, like shelters, counseling centers, or courthouses.
  • Travel restrictions may impact a survivor’s escape or safety plan – it may not be safe for them to use public transportation or to fly.
  • An abusive partner may feel more justified and escalate their isolation tactics.

If you or someone you know needs assistance, please, please, please, please:

Visit the National Domestic Violence Hotline Website

or Call:  1-800-799-7233

You can do this!  Don’t fight two demons (the virus and the human) alone– get help.  You deserve it!  I made it — so can you!
