With the coming of the New Year, we have made a big decision to bring Plants & Planets to a close. Into our 18th year of producing a monthly newsletter and presenting the talk, we feel we have come to a good shifting point. We are both in vibrant moments—we are healthy and creatively inspired and want to give our all to whatever we do. It seems a blessing to be able to make major shifts from such space.
We will continue to write the newsletter for the next five months, with the June publication being our last issue. Our final talk at Traditions will be the third Thursday in May, May 19th.
As we walk from the known to the not-yet-known, we view this decision as an act of trusting Life and trusting the promptings of creative inspiration. We both intend to continue to write and teach and practice our craft.
We are so deeply grateful to all who have helped us co-create the Plants & Planets community and who have supported this work through subscribing to the newsletter, attending the talks, holding the space, contributing to the written content, told friends and otherwise spread the word. Together, we have made something special.
Rosie will continue to do astrology readings with a renewed enthusiasm from studying Vedic astrology. She also has several books she has been working on for years, at least one of which she intends to complete this year. She will also continue teaching and who knows what else will open in the void that has been the monthly Plants & Planets rhythm.
Carol will likewise continue to write and teach going forward. She will be focused on getting her book Conscious Caregiving more widely available in the world and is also working on a second book project as well. In addition, she is gradually beginning to resume working with private clients. She will also still be working at Radiance, and can be found there on Friday and Saturday afternoons. She, too, is curious to see what might reveal itself once the monthly Plants & Planets deadline is lifted.
Even in the process of making of this decision, we already feel how big this change will be for us. So much of our life has been melded around the writing and speaking of this work. Our readership has become like family. Throughout these many years all of us have experienced so much change and growth, individually and together. Our community has flourished and countless amazing projects have arisen to support the expanding manifestation of light and love. We have felt very dedicated to holding space for this transformation and will each continue to do so in our own ways. The new story continues to unfold.
We know we will miss the monthly community connection and the beautiful support that we have felt so deeply with and from all of you. And we also trust that that connection and mutual support is strongly woven and will persist and thrive in the times to come. Strengthening the planetary web of awareness and compassionate action remains a focus in all that we do. As we each transfigure life as we know it, may all of our efforts nourish ourselves as they nourish the well being and luminosity of each other and the whole of being.
In love and light,
Rosie and Carol
