Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

#MicroblogMondays - Getting Astrological

I had my astrological birth chart read.

Oh, did I mention the tarot reading? That happened the week before the birth chart.

I didn’t record the sessions and didn’t retain much after the sessions as this is basically like speaking a foreign language to me. I can’t quite grasp the terminology, so everything in between? Yeah, that’s white noise. I can go into meetings at work and not take many notes because I’m so familiar with the projects and technical terminology that I retain information more easily. This stuff?


Writing it down on my blog for you to read? It feels way too woo-woo for this engineer who apparently really wasn’t supposed to be an engineer, whose purpose is to deepen her spiritual practice, to wake up and speak, and about a year ago or so there was a planet moving behind another planet that signaled a giant shift or tidal wave is appropriate since the planet in question was Neptune….and here I am, exploring different avenues, shifting priorities, believing in things that I used to summarily dismiss and generally shaking up life as I know it.

An example, not my chart. ;-)
