"If you came here you wanted to work on healing. That’s probably why you were drawn here. It’s a powerful time of healing and if you were not working on it, on yourself, you wouldn’t be here.” –Rosie stands facing us.
Rosie interacts somatically with the group, asking for questions and responding with knowledge of astrology, basic sacred geometry thoughtfulness, consideration and wonderfully timed humor. The clarity of her voice rings like a bell and I feel transported to travel among the stars, to swerve through the curves and traverse the angles and trines. This is not plain language delivery, but a language in colors and feelings I am receiving. I know I am learning and growing because I am tasking between a-ha moments and deep burning questions sprung from questions.
The transition is smooth and Carol now stands before us. Her being is grounded and I feel regarding her presence that my spine is somehow magically aligning with the earth’s very poles. This is such a complimentary succession to Rosie’s journey through the stars.
These long-time friends to one another and community have delivered like doulas the intertwined information of not that which surrounds me, but that which is all of us here on this wondrous planet dancing with other planets, giving light and birth to plants and life, interdependence. I return as a way of returning to myself, hence others. We are the creators, shapers, harvesters, tenders, travelers, and stargazers. In gratitude.

There is deep wisdom and warm compassion in Olympia and it is epitomized by the years of sharing by these two wonderful women, Rosie Finn and Carol Trasatto. Each stands out in the areas of their expertise, astrology and herbalism, but together they have blended their knowledge into Plants & Planets, a magical monthly guide to help us all find a nice, grounded way to live our days. To weather storms, grasp our most creative moments, and to find peace in our center. I've been subscribing to their newsletter since they began and will continue as long as they are willing to keep publishing it.
