The Spring Equinox, Australia

Technically, the Spring Equinox was last Friday, the 23rd. However, that s also the date of my father birth, so I was honestly more worried about that. (Spring Equinox 2022 in Southern Hemisphere was at 11:03 am on Friday 23rd).

The September Equinox marks the arrival of the first day of spring in the southern hemisphere. That’s why in the earth’s southern areas, the September Equinox is known as the Spring Equinox.

Now, I am, what is called “new agey”, even though a lot of these beliefs have been around a long time. It’s kind of interesting that really. A lot of the beliefs and practices that people have been practicing for literal centuries are now “new”. Nah. man. It might be new to some religions, but it’s not new. Western Medication is quiet new though, in it’s current form at least.

I went out and found all these bees, over a a bush in our backyard. It’s a huge one and it smells beautiful. These pictures are also my last of September. Is there another sign of Spring coming? Apart from like baby lambs, but I don’t live near a Farm, lol

Bees are a symbol of wealth, good luck and prosperity since Ancient times.

What does spring equinox represent?

The Spring equinox is the representation of new life and light, new beginnings, path, and seeds.

How you can celebrate the Spring Equinox:

  • “Spring” Cleaning, haha
  • Refresh your house with Spring type items. Bring Spring, inside
  • Plant flowers and trees. Plant new life.
  • Usually this is done in the Northern Hemisphere, paint eggs.
  • Make a great feast.
  • Meditate.
  • Make a fairy garden.
  • Watch, as it changes from Winter to Spring.

Honey Bee Day

Bees can literally kill me, but we are killing them. Also, bee butts are the cutest!

Get Involved – World Bee Day (Australia, but you can try too!)

With Honey Bee Day, we have two different days the one in America is August the 18th and in Australia ours is May 20th. I am assuming because of the weather. It’s still quiet cold in August in Australia, not many Bees about. In May though, we are heading towards Winter, but it’s still Autumn. Less and less warms days, but warmer than August.

Which makes sense. You probably could not have an international day, just based on the globe seasons.

National Sorry Day

What’s the purpose of National Sorry Day?

In addition to acknowledging the trauma and loss that continues to affect Indigenous communities, families and individuals, National Sorry Day also provides a chance to focus on healing and pursue reconciliation in Australian society.

Reconciliation Australia

Because of what’s happened in Texas and this day always brings out the racist “I didn’t do anything to hurt them” Which honestly, most of the time, they have been completely racist to Indigenous Australians. They may have never “harmed” Indigenous people, but they haven’t been kind either.

Noooo…It’s happening

Today is Election Day in Australia. When you see this post, I will be still tucked in bed. I just wanted to let you all know that I wont be on here for the next couple of days. No matter the results, I just think it’s not going to be nice. I already have felt ill the last couple of days.

Last time we were here, none of us thought Morrison was going to win, and it was DEVASTATING when he did. I still think, even know, that he doesn’t want to be PM. But like Trump, he’ll stay, to show face.

My State Elections!

Oh my goodness readers, today if my State Elections!

I’m not actually sure if I’m allowed to write here who I’m voting for. So currently we have the Liberals Leader Steven Marshall, he’s not too bad for a Liberal (think American Republican and the Tories) He’s not that bad, unfortunately, the opposition leader Peter Malinauskas is just that little better.

I kind of just gave away who I’m voting for, didn’t I? lol

There was actually sometime really good that Steven Marshall did. I just can’t remember what it was, 100% It had something to do with being a member of the Liberal Party, you actually have pay a fee and to do something…I think. The biggest mistake that he made was taking health services, thinking bringing it back was a good thing. Listening to Scott Morrison and opening borders up earlier and putting money towards a basketball stadium instead of hospitals and ambulance services. In the last couple of weeks, we’ve had 5 people die because they were waiting for ambulances.

Basketball stadium vs ambulances getting to you, so you don’t die.

It’s not really a competition.

Most people that have been complaining about “Where is PM getting the money for more ambulance” Never thought to ask “Where’s Steven Marshall getting the money for a basketball stadium?”

Thursday Theories – Personally, I am over the blatantly stupidity.

Recently a well known radio host in Australia, asked “How do we get people back into the CBD’s” This radio host has been a BIG encourager of the anti-vax and anti-mandates “protests” that have been taken place in the CBD’s.

Here’s the thing, the anti-vaxers were complaining about how all these businesses were shutting down. So around Christmas, people were being really cautious, rules were relaxed a little. So what did the anti-vaxers do? They went into the city to protest against…well, we’re not sure what exactly…

Guess what happened, the majority that had been vaccinated left the city. Then the cities got COVID, so everyone stopped going out…Then the anti-vaxers started to whine about how the PM’s had opened up everything way too early.

How do these people not get it?

Canberra, is 95% double vaccinated, at the time when the last “protest” took place. The ACT was the most highly vaccinated state/terrotiory in Australia. So what did the “Freedums” Protestors, they went to the ACT of course! Too protest against mandates, mandates … at the high vaccinated state in Australia. They came from other states, because Canberra, were vaccinated.

Guess what happened.

The people who actually lived in Canberra, left the city early …

People came from all over Australia, to protest mandates, at the highest state vaccinated.

Mardi Gras, 2022 – Australia

Mardi Gras in Australia ended just yesterday (Sunday), I was so proud, my baby brother was apart of it! He was in NSW, however, and they have been nearly as huge floods as QLD. Which is needless to say, with everything, I wouldn’t blame people for not knowing.

Last night I watched as Australia cheered on trans groups at the Mardi Gras. Today I saw ONE Australian try to spread fear about trans people, and that misinformation was then shared by ONE Scottish billionaire fiction writer. Be Loud and Support trans people! We are more then them!

What I would like to share with you all, are a series of YouTube videos representing some of what’s been happening this year with Mardi Gras in Australia!

United We Shine!

Oh dear…Shane Warne

I don’t know how many of you follow Cricket, but Shane Warne has passed at 52!

I’m not really a big cricket fan. Even I know who Shane Warne is though, an apparent heart attack. There are rumor’s it was COVID related, but those are just rumors. Like Betty White, I refrain from doing so.

Shane Warne and I disagreed on a lot of political stuff and he would have been called a “larrikin”. He wasn’t a bad person persay, just a … larrikin, lol 52!

Australia/Invasion Day

I respect and honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future. I acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on this land and commit to building a brighter future together.

The only thing I enjoy about today, I get a public holiday, which means a day off of work. Think of Australia/Invasion Day as America’s Columbus Day.

Every year, I still think it should be moved and every year, I have to explain to idiots how there are still people living from the Stolen Generations. Between 1910 and the 1970s*, many First Nations children were forcibly removed from their families as a result of various government policies.

Someone made a really good point, if we can’t #changethedate to show that we don’t celebrate the harm of our first nations people. Do we actually even deserve an #AustraliaDay? No, I don’t think we do.

*Policies of forced removals were in place from 1910 to 1969, but there are many stories of forced removals prior to and after these dates.
