7-11-13: These are days to remember !

When we were kids, my parents acknowledged all of our half birthdays. So at some point you go from 8 to 8 and a half. Or 35 to 35 and a half ( my parents did this too!)  My parents were married on my mother’s half birthday, which eventually became my sister’s actual birthday.  Still with me here??  It is interesting to note that the placement of the Earth in one’s natal chart is the exact opposition of the Sun. So your Earth placement marks your half birthday. Mine is in Taurus which is a splendid place for the Earth, don’t ya agree? On this lucky 7-11 Thursday, my blog turns 6 months old. It is having its first half birthday! So litebeing chronicles is celebrating its first Earthday!

Although the half birthdays were always mentioned while growing up, no celebrations took place at this halfway point. I don’t count half birthdays anymore, time flies so quickly from one year to the next. But I do want to celebrate this milestone for litebeing chronicles.  I love the notion of having a soundtrack to my life. This is why I often add music to my posts. Moments can glow when set within in a musical frame, which is how I define a soundtrack. My spirituality also follows this thread. My friend and I had decided to call the Divine ” The Scriptwriter” who supplied us with the storyline. We would improvise with our lines and the ultimate character development. I like this metaphor because it gives some structure to a seemingly random set of events and situations. So I chose a song for this special anniversary. I have selected a timeless tune to set the mood : These Are Days by 10,000 Maniacs.

These Are Days is about living in the NOW with awareness, gratitude, and love. I am so grateful to all my supporters old and new. I had no idea this blog would last 6 months and I am incredibly blessed with so much kindness and support. This is so much more than I imagined. Thank you for taking this journey with me.  My wish for all of us is that every day is filled with moments of blessings and Divine communication of unwavering love. The Quakers believe that every day is a holy day so they do not elevate one day above another. I really like this sentiment because it places the focus on the present.  I pray for the holy in every moment. Let’s all do our best to spread our collective light to help create  that ultimate manifestation.

  2. Happy belated half anniversary blogging! May your purpose for this blog be abundantly blessed!! I’m reading about the Journey to Emptiness and just finished the section about Dogen and the practice of sitting zazen, which allows you to strip away all and just be in the moment! So I’m glad that I read this post today 😉

    Loved your post. As an astrologer I’ve always found a lot of information about the year ahead in a solar return chart. But I was really amazed to find out how much information was contained in a solar return set for your “half birthday” i.e. when the sun comes to the place where the earth was in your birth chart.

    1. thanks Ann for your comment. I see you as both friend and mentor so your feedback matters to me! Perhaps my parents’s fixation on time was another factor that helped shape my love of astrology 🙂

  5. Happy half Birthday to your bloggy! *giggling* to be honest, I have never heard of celebrating half birthdays, though I’m not sure why because I tend to celebrate just about everything else.. lol

    I also find marking the days of special occasions of our choosing helps us to look apon happenings with a positive attitude and helps us to be appreciative!

    Great song as well, I hadn’t heard this one before!

    Thanks for sharing!
