overall/ carpo (summer fruits). now that the season has shifted, we begin to categorize + sum up the past. if you've started school or returned from vacation, you're being paraded with questions of "how was your summer? what did you do? where did you go?" i think we all feel these subtle critiques + judgments even if we didn't have a break. we start feeling doubtful of ourselves + our (exterior) progress. we become so anxious trying to tally up all our successes, + we realize we fall short.. maybe compared to others, or more likely, to our own expectations. honoring the seasons + the cycles of the earth is more than just noticing, or following along with associated concepts.. you need to honor your own cycles. maybe this summer sucked for you, maybe you did "nothing." what's wrong with that? there's always something under the surface, right? let's bring our focus there this moon cycle, to what others can't see. let's start counting our achievements in our own way.
