The Month of Moms

Greetings and Salutations,

I hope this email finds you well and in good spirits. We are in the month of Moms! Happy Mother's Day to every mother in your life. This is going to be a busy post because we have so much going on this month. We have a major configuration with Neptune and Jupiter hanging out in Pisces. Then we have Mercury going into retrograde starting on May 10th till June 3rd. And don't forget the end of the year celebrations for schools here in America. Nothing is the way it used to be! Yes, the pandemic changed our world forever but, let's face it, change is happening all the time anyway. We just got a chance to slow down and pay close attention. At least that is how I am viewing the last couple of years. This time has given us all a chance to slow down and check in with what the heck is going on in your world. As we move forward, I would ask that YOU, yes, I am speaking to you directly, take this next month or so to review where you would like your life to end up in the future. It's not that hard. You do not have to stop doing what you are doing but do it after you read this blog. Get a pen, some paper (or use my affirmation journal!), or set your phone up to record, and be honest with yourself. What do you really want out of your life? Are you happy? These are some good questions to ask yourself since Mercury, the communication planet, will be in retrograde. That means Mercury will not be flowing with the Earth's gravitational flow. It's doing what it needs to do. With that said, I expect communication will be a little bit off during this period. If you do have to deal with this energy pull, then at least you know where it's coming from. So, take note of the dates and don't fall victim to unnecessary bull shit!

Did you know that I have a new channel on YouTube called "Spiritual Coaching with Ari Mac"?? We did our 1st virtual open house last week and I had a great time. This is going to be the next journey of Spiritual Coaching with Ari Mac. In the past, I would have a physical space where we could all meet and I would share a new candle, tell you guys about the classes coming up, and, of course, go over what's coming up in the next month or so. Then end it all with a 10-minute meditation. But I want to share this far and wide so I had to come up with something new. Please subscribe to the new YouTube channel and share with family, friends, and everyone you know in need of some positive spiritual entertainment.

The candle for this month is Forest Green and you can get yours today here at CBA!

For the month of May, I am making my Forest Green candles with Canary Yellow for communication exclusively for my Subkit subscribers.

I have been thinking about how I can use my talents to be more of a service to the fundraising community and I think I have come up with something very special. Every month I will be giving away a candle award to worthy folks that I meet in my travels to help boost the morale of my CBA community. And guess what - you get to give that candle award away too! Do you know someone in your community who you feel meets your expectation in building up the community in a positive way? This month, we are honoring Jennifer Tripet of Owl's Nest Childcare in Burbank, California.

Jennifer has worked non stop during this pandemic taking care of the kids in her daycare and not one of her children came down with Covid-19. She has dedicated herself to helping little people grow into outstanding people. I have had the honor of watching Jennifer over this time work tirelessly to keep her children safe, entertained, and educated during the height of the virus. Words can not express the deep respect I have for her dedication to servicing her community and her kids. I recently gave her the candle award. Watch here at:

Finally, depression and mental challenges are real. Please note that everything that I am suggesting is to help you feel good about yourself and the world that you are creating. If you feel you need more one on one info please feel free to contact me here or on Candles By Ari at 818-762-4256.
