Beware the Ides of March

Beware the Ides of March! Haven’t you heard that before? I sure have but had no clue what it was about until my lovely husband Richard told me.

This is the day that fell on the 74th day of the Roman calendar, corresponding to March 15 on our calendar. For the Romans, it was marked by several religious observances and was a deadline for settling debts. I was thinking about settling some debts while driving home yesterday when I heard a loud bang! I thought that I had hit a rock in the road but then I saw a wild boar running off out of the corner of my left eye. My instinct to brake saved the poor thing from the same fate as old Julius Caesar on this fateful day in history. (Julius Caesar, the Roman dictator, was assassinated by a group of about 60 senators on the Ides of March of 44 BC Wikipedia). Ah, the Ides of March is tomorrow, I remembered

Wild boars are often featured in Roman history and my Italian forefathers used them as a symbol in several military legions during the time of the Roman Empire. Little wonder my huge, brown friend came running onto my path as if to say, “Beware the Ides of March, Cara!” My guides sure have some strange ways of communicating with me at times but I am so grateful that they do. 

March 15 is also a very important day on the Mayan calendar. It is the beginning of a new ceremonial cycle when new initiates are welcomed into the circle of spiritual leaders to take up their roles for the next chapter. My favorite blog about all things to do with Mayan astrology www.thefourpillars.net has all the information you need to know about this auspicious time. I plan to mark the date with some quiet meditation and prayer. 

I also found out that Ruth Bader-Ginsberg (May she rest in peace) was born on this day in history in 1933 as well as St Nicholas, who is famous for being nice to children but also happens to be the patron saint for the falsely accused:-) Ruth is one of my heroes for advocating for gender equality. She demonstrated that gender biases impact men as well as women and she even used a tax case to prove this.

Some days just vibrate differently to others huh? The Ides of March is one of them and I just had to share.  

May the Spirits lift you higher,

I DID IT! + **Cover Reveal**

Hey Guys

I have some great news to share with you. I’ve just signed off the cover for my book.

I’m so excited, I just had to share it with you.

That’s me!

That’s mine!

I did it!!

As you can see, my story is a very personal one. The courage to tell it did not come easy. I had the usual fears that people do whenever they are dealing with opening up but I could not (and did not) let the fear get in the way. I pushed through it because in my heart I know one thing: I have a story that only I can tell – and it deserves to be heard!

The pretty me on the cover did not come easy either. I worked with a wonderful photographer, Karianne Munstedt, as well as hair and makeup people to turn out that way. What a treat.

It’s been a long journey and now that I am finally standing at the finish line…well, the joy is indescribable.

Thank you for listening and letting me share my joy with you. The next time you hear from me, I’ll be telling how you can get yourself a copy of my book.

Until then, I wish you the courage to share your story too. Trust me, the sense of accomplishment is pretty priceless.

Love,

Cara – Seeker of Magic, Spreader of Light

**P.S. The cover was designed by the wonderful South African graphic artist, Chrissy Harvey. I highly recommend her!

Healing Through Writing

Hello my lovely friends and readers


So I may (or may not) have mentioned to you I have written a book. It is going to be published in just a couple of weeks. Sitting down to write my story was mixed-bag of slow, pleasure and pain. I wanted to tell the story as factually accurate as possible — so it was necessary to put in the sweaty emotional work. 

My incredible editor and writing coach helped me so much! She encouraged me not to get caught up in fear, not to censor my feelings and definitely NOT to worry what other people think of me or my story. “It is YOUR story, Cara,” she would say in her voice notes. “If other people don’t like it, tough shit.” 

That was transformative. 


The dwarf planet, Chiron reminds me of the writing process.
This planet is named after a centaur (a creature with the head, arms, and torso of a man and the body and legs of a horse) who in Greek mythology who had incredible healing powers. Sadly he could not heal himself from the wound of a poison arrow and died. Chiron represents deep sources of wounding and healing in our lives. It’s the soft-spot that feels vulnerable, unloved and hurt — a part that we cannot fix ourselves. I believe that writing can help us in this respect. *Dear Chiron, I hope you’re listening…for your next life, wink-wink*

So if you are thinking of writing your story I would suggest you just do it. Don’t wait for the right moment. Don’t worry about what others will think of you. Just go for it! And if you are looking for someone to help you with the process, contact Lee. Her website is www.leemayimele.com

Namaste,
