Integrity of self is a very important theme. Especially for the times where society is attempting to create some movement. It’s a time where nobody knows the best way to be so one can only simply be! Keeping yourself insular is helpful.

Taurus
This is a time of expansion for you in many different ways. Deep understanding into another realm of life can come at this time and following your intuition will be important. Be open to the new and fresh way of being!

Fernie is home to a popular Canadian band, Shred Kelly who is known for their high energy live shows, folk tinged sing-along anthems, fusing 'traditional instrumentation with modern rock, presenting a sound that is both unique and compelling."

2020 is a big year for the band. The release of their new album Like a Rising Sun is dropping this June 2019. The first single released was "Dead Leaves" earlier this spring, and was an instant hit. Today the band released the video for their newest release, "Disconnect."

The Council of the Thirteen (Indigenous) Grandmothers stated several years ago: “tie into the energy of your mother’s mother’s mother” because this is how slow life is about to go on Earth (again). 

Like most of you, I’ve been spending a lot of time online lately. Unlike most of you, I normally spend a great deal of time online, so I have been perhaps a little less off-kilter than some of you have in moving most of my social life online. However, despite my comfort level even I enjoy a little group socializing now and then.
