Bee girl

It all started with a bee-sting – actually, two in one week! The bees were clearly trying to get Mikalia Ulmer’s attention. Terror was the 11-year-old’s initial response. But once she learned how bee populations are dying from colony collapse disorder, Mikalia got the point. She went on Shark Tank, won $60,000 in start-up money, and turned her grandmother’s flaxseed-lemonade recipe into a national business – with ten percent of the proceeds going toward helping honey bees. Now the intrepid sixth-grader leads workshops on how to save the bees, and is even helping her friends launch businesses of their own.

Mikalia could have remained in fear and avoided bees for the rest of her life. Instead she took the shaman’s path – with a modern-day twist. In tribal times, being injured by an animal sometimes signaled a call to become a healer. You now possessed that creature’s “medicine,” and were charged with using it to benefit others. Bee energy represents community, celebration and organization. Mikalia may not identify as a budding shaman, but she’s certainly pollinating the world with her medicine.

We’re approaching the Scorpio Full Moon (Thursday April 21, 10:24 p.m. PDT), sometimes known as the Shaman’s Moon. The Moon in magical Scorpio opposes the Sun in grounding Taurus on the night before Earth Day. What are you prepared to do to help your Earth Mama and her creatures? At the very least, stand under the Full Moon and raise your arms, drawing down her power and asking for help with your healing intentions. Say a prayer for the bees, and any other creatures you care for. You can also ask for assistance in manifesting personal desires. Since Venus, the Taurus ruler, is in Aries conjunct lickety-split Uranus, you may get quick results. If not, bear in mind that action-hero Mars has just (on the 17th) gone retrograde in Sagittarius/Scorpio until the end of June, calling us all to become patient warriors for the truth. Continue to walk your shaman’s path and have faith!

    Loved this post, Simone! Little Mikalia’s story is so inspiring. And I miss the bees! So very few left. I saw my first one this weekend. I need to plant more flowers that attract them.

    I’ll be looking at the moon on Thursday and thinking of you! Best wishes on your new book!
