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?

Sedona Arts Center is calling for new gallery artists, and encourages local creative people to apply. The Fine Art Gallery, located in Uptown Sedona, greets 2500 visitors each month, and sells all forms of visual art—from textiles and jewelry to bronze sculpture, photography, craft objects, painting and ceramics. The Arts Center’s current gallery roster comprises 110 of the regions most interesting and productive artists, who are supported and promoted year-round. 

Every year we have a New Moon in Gemini, meaning fun! Whoopee! There is a theme to this year’s party and I’ll fill you in.

Real estate reached a fevered pitch this springtime, but is quickly coming to a close.  We've seen mulitple offers on homes, some being bid up past their listing prices - but the the most part I'd say that these homes were in the sub $600k price range - the meat of the market.  There are currently over 100 homes already in escrow with buyers - so that translates into about 25% of our current inventory of Sedona homes is already spoken for.  The market cools somewhat in the mid-range homes (from $600k-$1M), and the upper end homes (over $1M) has seen a recent uptick of activity - with 9 homes over $1M in escrow. 

On another note - people often talk about international buyers - I think I debunked that myth last month's blog - but there is some evidence of international sellers this year.  I've sold one home already for a Canadian seller this year - and we're getting ready to list another one.  This article might explain why Canadians are selling homes.  Fletcher Wilcox says: "If a Canadian bought a house in the U.S. in 2011 and paid $150,000 USD, they would have paid close to $155,000 CAD.  In 2015, if that same property, because of appreciation, sold for $225,000 USD, a Canadian seller would receive $300,000 CAD, almost double what they paid in Canadian dollars in 2011. Quite a gain. So far in 2016, the Canadian dollar is even weaker against the U.S. dollar than last year."

It is no coincidence that I am writing this article today and at this time, as I do what I do when I feel the impetus to act. Timing is in the Stars, whether we realize it or not.

When we are open to trusting our loving, guiding inner voice, we are also in divine time, as Heavenly Father Mother God is within. We Can avoid mis-steps.
