May Wrap-UP

May was a busy month, but a good one. Working in the garden feels great, although there’s so much to do, I always feel like I’m falling behind.

I was also faced with some Saturn Retrograde challenges — the direction in which I want my career to go in the next few years is changing, and I’ve had to give some serious thought to the adjustments that entails — disengaging from several clients, seeking new ones, but doing so gracefully and positively, not out of anger. So often, we leave because we’re fed up and have waited too long. I want to make the shift as I know I’m outgrowing these particular assignments, so I can leave positively, not negatively.
