Padmes June Sabbatical to Cabo, Mexico

My birthday month of June couldn’t have been better this year.

I ventured out with the girls for an amazing trip to Cabo. The whole idea was rest, relaxation, and celebrating birthdays! Pool time, ocean time, and fun time!

We sailed across the ocean (really just off  shore from where we were staying) in a glass-bottom boat to Del Arcos, the rock formations at Lovers beach and stayed for the day. When we landed we were immediately helped off the boat (practically carried to dry sand) and then approached by guys selling cervesas. That’s what I”m talking about. Paradiso!

We went shopping through tents and tents of silver jewelry and embroidered dresses. It was so freaking hot I wished I had one of those dorky personal electric fans. The guys selling the jewelry actually got paper fans out and started fanning us! “We want you to buy, so look around and be comfortable, movie star.” hahahaha I got some great stuff!

We got massages, lunched on the marina, and of course did a timeshare tour for a free sunset cruise! We hit all the stops.

We went to The Office, one of the restaurants right on the beach, Solomon’s, another great place for dinner, and my favorite, Sunset da Monalisa.

Sunset da Monalisa

The best part of Cabo, Mexico was in fact an Italian restaurant called Sunset da Monalisa. When we arrived at Sunset da Monalisa were were told that no one could sit outside that night because the wind was just too strong. They couldn’t serve food in the wind! So we were inside. The walls of this restaurant are all glass. This is because it is perched on the top of a cliff overlooking the ocean. Sunset da Monalisa is, hands down, the most amazing place to watch a sunset.

From the moment we walked in I could feel my mom. This was a place she had never been, but I knew she was there with me that night. I looked out into the ocean off of the cliff and it felt like this was one of the places we had called our favorite.

The food was divine. We weren’t finished dining before it was that magical hour. Everyone in the whole restaurant made their way outside on the cascading verandas to watch the sunset. I felt like I was in a different dimension. It was magical. I could tell my mom was all around me and enveloped as much as I was in the beauty of this night. It was truly a stunning dreamlike experience.

When the sun set and we walked back up to our table, my friend showed me her phone. She had taken pictures of all of us and all of the pictures she had taken of me had a bright yellow orb in it. I didn’t need the validation, but it was awesome to have it. My mom was right next to me the whole time.

Padmes card of the month page of wandsThe Page of Wands is passionate about expressing his truth and feeding his soul.

He focuses on his gifts and manifests creativity with creativity.

Another message the Page of Wands offers is to be yourself. Simple… But not so simple. Being your most true self in every aspect of your life can be a practice. Where society kicks in and rules are afoot, how can you truly express your own identity?

This month will fill you with direction if you’re willing to walk the path that is only you. It’s okay to pull away from society a bit and acknowledge your core beliefs and what that looks like to you moving forward in the world around you. This month may also be hinged with a few worthy breakthroughs following a breakdown or two.

Seeking the highest way to live life at this time, looking back at lessons learned and with great power, carrying on ahead with the knowledge that you have been through something is how the Page of Fire (Wands) rolls. He appreciates his life’s trials and errors. He feels it makes him stronger, smarter, faster, and ultimately, better for it. This is a time when you may feel like you’re starting something new, or moving forward with your life in a new way. After April’s Grand Cross, I think there’s a lot of that going around! New beginnings and “Clean Cups!”—The Mad Hatter

Regarding Relationships this month, Romantic, business, or friends, it’s time to get serious about connection. Are you in it for the long haul? What are your like-values and what do you have in common? Are your dynamics going to drive you or can you truly grow together? These questions need to be grokked this month and choices need to be evaluated.

Work-related projects are catch-and-release until you land the perfect gig! Anything you start this month that you’re passionate about can really take off. So don’t bother with the small stuff, or the situations and commitments where you just don’t have all your ducks in the basket. Get serious about what you really want to do. Your life purpose can really align with your path right now if you open your receiving and allow in only the good-good.

When making decisions this month, your best advice is to hold on to what is most important. Do what you have to do in order to achieve balance in your own conscious. You will sleep better, I promise. This crosses the gamut of life: work and career, personal time, relationships, and awareness, group endeavors.
