In esoteric teachings we learn that water represents emotions. Were you ever on a boat that was rocked by unusually high waves? Has it seemed like that in your life lately? Planetary aspects were lined up for that beginning last week, and many of us have been noticing the rocking.

I used to do spiritual Readings on a large luxury cruise liner in the Atlantic Ocean and sometimes people would be bouncing from one hall wall to the other to try to keep their footing as the boat rocked.

Adam Lehl, a type designer from Wisconsin, has been spending the past few weeks as artist-in-residence at Sedona Summer Colony. He began collecting hand-written alphabets, A through Z, about 15 years ago while in college. It began as a project put forth by his professor to collect styles in magazines to understand typefaces while he studied graphic design. Instead, Adam purchased a sketchbook and wrote his own alphabet down.

That same day he attended a party with friends, and people at the get-together began writing their own alphabets into his book. By the end of the night, Adam had collected over 40 hand-written alphabets—and the Alphabet Collector Project began. While on the Verde Valley School campus, and exploring Northern Arizona, he has continue this project with our community.

Ceramic artist Autumn Higgins grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and was raised in Portland, Oregon. She was born into a family of artists with a painter mother and grandparents who spent over 50 years working in ceramics. These strong creative influences helped to mold her into the creative producer she is today. 

Musician and film-industry veteran Rob Chidester grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisianna. He’s got the culture of that state in his blood, but has worked all over the country art directing films, producing music videos, and serving as an impresario for creative people and projects. This week he landed in Sedona as one of the first artists in residence at the Sedona Summer Colony.

Rob grew up across the lake from the Louisiana State University Campus. He was introduced to theater in Ms. Shirley Pourciau’s drama class at Robert E. Lee High School and later he attended LSU Theater School where he founded the comedy troupe, The Humoroids that hosted weekly comedy show.

Perhaps you have been feeling like nothing was moving forward in life as you would have liked. In fact, people or things may have been depleted of energy or life force. Every delay or issue may have shown up…’to everything there is a season and a reason for everything under the sun.’

Back in April, two intense, powerful planets, which have a great deal to do with generating our energy, ditched their forward movement, in favor of slowing down, then getting some shut eye, plunging themselves, and us all, into what seems like a stopping motion. Do you remember noticing that in April? Read on to know what is happening now!

Monday, June 20 much happened, and the taste is long lasting. So many ingredients; it’s a soup we’ve never tasted and here’s a sample.

The first ingredient we start with was the full moon. Did you see it as it was reaching capacity; looking decidedly raspberry in color? In Europe it used to be called the Full Rose Moon.

The Raspberry Full Moon was a signal to the Algonquin tribe that it was time to gather ripening fruit. What have you planted and will it be sour or delicious? You are the gardener of your life; has it been delicious?
