The wheel seemed to turn in overdrive this season - so much has been happening! As of this writing, the Gathering has already happened, and I will be giving a report in the next issue if all the pictures are in by then...

The theme this season's issue is COMMUNITY. There are several articles about the different aspects of community - especially as seen by someone on a spiritual path. It seems - collectively - that we are once again turning from a "me-centered" time back to a time of wanting and needing connection with others - and it's not just a social connection we seek. We seem to be looking for something much deeper, more meaningful, more substantial. We are becoming much pickier about who we spend time with, who we share energy (or water) with, and who we wish to teach or learn from.

I feel there is a larger reason for this movement back to interconnectedness. Those who are especially intuitive can probably tune in on what it all means and share it with the rest. I, for one, am happy to see this shift. I spent a whole lot of hermit time in this life (necessary, and somewhat enjoyable, actually, being a Virgo and the Hermit being my sign's Tarot card)...but lately I have been drawing members of my "spiritual family" into my life, and I must say it feels great!

On another note, I've been getting an influx of Reiki and Astrology students this past season - so many want to learn healing and how to read the cosmos - before 2012. Hmmm...maybe I should do something about 2012 in a future issue - would you all like that? Suffice it to say that if I DO write about 2012, it will NOT be any kind of "doom and gloom", "end of the world" type drama, but it will be from a more accurate and positive perspective...

My readers are welcome to email me with ideas and requests for future THEMES for the Druid's Egg. All who write me will receive a personal response...
