The Birds and Bees of Summer
A Message for the Trecena of Monkey/CHUEN
by Minisa Crumbo Halsey
Let us place some time and attention apart in order to move into and more deeply with the divine and eternal concepts of balance and harmony. Love and the red gifts of the heart are flowering, even fruiting and seeding with those of us who reside in the northern hemi-shell of our beautiful Mother Earth which is in turn, shone down upon and energized by our beloved Father Sky Sun.
Would we re-member that the Spirit Wisdom direction of the North resides upon the Unity Path of this Good Red Road. This sacred path, spirit trail or staff is where we are now…somewhere along it. A time and place most sought after, prayed for and fondly remembered while all so recently drawn close to the warm fires of winter.. dreaming of…
Weaving The Memory Garments Of Summer Beauty
We have ‘made it’ once again…Recognition and Gratitude of the season is the colorful warp and woof of our looms as the fabrics of life are spun and woven. Today, I select the colorful red bird and it’s song, stringing in the falling rains, weaving in the humming resonances of heat, expanding apparently limitlessly into the longest days, noting the reappearance of the Venus Evening Star, marking the boundaries of sunrise, sunset, mid-day and mid-night……making personal the fabric….a personal history made visible..all the while..selecting and sitting at the loom with the industry of the honey bee…winter’s sweets being made of today.
Be flowering, fruiting and seeding…

Therefore, it is always about remembering… for the old ones say, “It is not whether you will do ‘it’ but whether you will remember it”, and, at the core of our remembering lives our sacred nature and the sacredness of all creation.” ~Minisa
