Because We All Could Use A Little Hope
Guess who stopped by on yesterday’s New Moon?
That’s right! Sweet little Hope!
You might remember her from last year, as I posted about her twice. One of those blogs was titled Hope Kindles Change. Synchronously, she was showing up in September of 2019 too! It must be her month for appearances and messages.
But other than a couple of bunnies I’ve seen outside of our yard, yesterday’s sighting was the first IN our yard since the snow began to thaw and I saw a bunny nibbling on some exposed greens. I had a feeling that was her too.
But yesterday I was in the right place at the right time, just having finished giving Astrid some good morning kisses and snuggles, to catch this little one running by my office into the backyard. To say that my heart leapt with glee is an understatement. I ran to go see her through the other sliding glass door and then made my way outside to give her a proper greeting.
She looked so much like my sweet little friend, Hope, grown up. It became evident that indeed it was her by how long she sat listening to me talk to her while nestled under the bushes with those wide, deep eyes and pure little heart.
Oh how I missed her.
I even got to see her binky and zip around with joy once, which I was lucky to catch a glimpse of on camera. Check out that adorable little cottontail bunny butt and powerful little back thumpers. Weeeeeeeeeee!
I LOVE that she made her grand appearance on the Virgo Super New Moon. Astrid was quite aware that she had announced herself and I sensed that both of them were working up some rabbit alchemy together.
I actually wouldn’t be surprised if Hope is a Virgo too. There’s something very connected with the two of them.
I feel that her appearance at the threshold of illumination and new beginnings that the New Moon heralds, was Hope’s way of imparting a breath of potential that lingers in the air for us to breathe in.
Although things seem daunting and so very unknown, she has the sweetest way of reminding us that all hope is not lost. That we have unlimited creative ways to navigate the journey and with a little heart and a lot of vision, we can reinvent, reimagine, and recreate anew.
And as the blog link shares above, about her message she has come to impart:
My sweet bunny friend, Hope, wants us not to lose all faith.
She wants us to kindle hope, because hope kindles change.
Not an attached, desperate, yearning kind of hope that tightens one’s ability to breathe, but a gentle, soft inhale of possibility.
Dark despair and resignation sets up self-fulfilling prophecies. What you believe has power over you.
Hope is a process of remembering your nature, and as nature always renews, so can you.
