A weekly guide to Illuminate your Life
A Note from Katie
Hi everyone, I hope that you are having a good week. I had an amazing weekend camping with my family in a magical place along the banks of the Snake River. We spotted wild turkeys, bald eagles, deer and some critter that scavenged our trash in the night! On Sunday it was rainy, misty and ethereal. We took a gorgeous hike through the woods in the rain. The cover picture this week is a picture that took. It looks like a portal to the Fae!
I am calling this week's magazine the "Stillness" edition, because there such a deep energy this week that is drawing us within ourselves. Be silent, be introverted, be peaceful.
Please join me on August 10th at 11:00 AM Pacific for the "Katie Weaver Show" on 12Radio. I will be live streaming at in the 12Radio Chat Room on Facebook. Learn more about me at www.katie-weaver.com.
My Musings, Mostly for Me
Sometimes for you
Pumpkin Spice Magic
Autumn is here, and that can only mean one thing. Pumpkin spice madness! Pumpkin spice has managed to make its way into practically everything. From lattes, to cookies, to air fresheners, to vodka, the spice blend of fall is taking over the land. Pumpkin spice is actually a blend of exotic spices, comprised of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger and cloves. Each one of these spices has its own magical properties.
Cinnamon is a well-known spice with many culinary uses. Its magical properties include: Clairvoyance, consecration, divination, energy, good luck, love, money, passion, peace, prosperity, protection, psychic development and success. Cinnamon can also be burned to purify the energy of a space.
Nutmeg is primarily grown in Indonesia. Is the seed of the tree, and it usually used ground into a powder. Nutmegs magical qualities include prosperity, good luck, psychic awareness, fortune, clairvoyance, divination, justice, and meditation.
Allspice is primarily grown in Jamaica. Its magical uses include money, luck, healing, compassion, determination, energy, fertility, gain, love, renewal, and as an aphrodisiac.
Powdered ginger is a root that has been dried and ground into a fine powder. Ginger is used in magic to enhance magical work, and for protection from negative influences.
Cloves are the unopened flower buds from an evergreen tree that grows in Indonesia, Madagascar and Sri Lanka. The buds are dried and ground to a fine powder for baking. You may have seen oranges studded with whole clove buds, known as Pomandors. Clove pomanders protect the home the negative influences. Magically, cloves are used for protection, banishing hostile and negative forces, and gaining what is sought. They are also good for creating community and kinship in social gatherings.
What a powerful combination of energies we get in Pumpkin Spice blends! If you would like to harness all of them this fall, add a bit to your tea or coffee, baked goods and sprinkle over meat. You may even consider burning a pinch on a hot bit of charcoal, holding the intention of drawing all of the magic of fall.

A labyrinth is a walking path made in a unicursal design based on sacred geometry. The design is meant to bring comfort, order, rest, and harmony within one’s mind and body. Today, many interchange the word maze with labyrinth, but they are two different things entirely. A maze is a puzzle, filled with twists, turns, switchbacks, and dead ends. The directional decisions one makes in walking a maze is no guarantee of reaching the goal of the exit. This can lead one into a great deal of frustration, which is the opposite effect of a labyrinth. A labyrinth is a continuous single path to be followed. As one places one foot in front of the other, the winding path inward to the center of the design and then outward; a metaphor for releasing the past, letting go of one’s ego, and moving continuously forward in one’s life journey.
The ancient origin of the labyrinth is a mystery. Some labyrinth patterns date back to 4000 years ago, but it is suspected that the concept is much older. Having no definitive time of origin, we do know that the patterns of the labyrinth are universal and said to be an “arch-type of the human mind”. Archaic petroglyphs, paintings, and cave drawings of labyrinths are found worldwide.
According to Hindu lore to walk a labyrinth is to follow in the footsteps of Shiva, the Divine Transformer, both the Destroyer and the Creator. The earliest discovered physical labyrinth structure is said to be a two-story stone building in Egypt. In Greek mythology the labyrinth was an elaborate confusing structure designed and built by Daedalus for King Minos of Crete at Knossos. Its function was to hold the Minotaur, the half-man, half-bull monster. Labyrinth patterns are also found in Native American pottery and basket weave designs.
Many labyrinth patterns were set into floors or on the ground in dimensions large enough to be walked. This practice has continued to present time. In the Middle Ages a cathedral labyrinth was walked in place of walking a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Today, walking a labyrinth is a tool for stimulating right brain activity, leading one to explore deeper levels of awareness, to be guided intuitively into life’s metaphor. To experience the journey into ‘darkness’ ; to contemplate the egoless essence of oneself in one’s core, the labyrinth’s center; and return outward transformed. Walking the labyrinth helps to release blocks and worries, quiet the mind and see clearly, to aid in meditation, in asking a specific question searching for an answer, listening for guidance, setting an intention, forgiving, reducing stress, healing, renewing creativity and to help you “find your way”. This ancient symbol is a means to discover one’s wholeness.
In a modernistic way, walking the labyrinth, is an exercise in following the hero’s journey; a personal tale of beauty, courage, dignity, love, power and wisdom of oneself. There is only one choice to make: to enter the labyrinth of self discovery or not.
Tip of the Week

Create sacred space for yourself. Remember that not only is the space sacred, but you are sacred in this space.
Sacred space can exist anywhere, inside or outside, close to home or a distance away. Sacred space is something you create by bringing your own sacred self, your divine and profound presence, to the space. Sacredness is created from a resonance between our heart and the energy of the natural or created space.
This might be a small meditation corner, or a huge kitchen. We might find a spot under massive tree, or a shifting spot near changing tides and sands. We might build an alter or find one waiting for us. We might light candles or perhaps use the setting sun to light our dreams. What matters is the way this space calls to us, and the way we can embrace our true self in this space.
In many ways our entire life is a dance of sacredness. Sometimes we are led by the place, and sometimes we lead with our hearts. This dance helps us find our tribe and align our actions with our soul’s desire. There are so many melodies and rhythms, steps and energies that we can dance in connected but unique ways. Take some time to find the rhythm and dance and space that honors your own sacredness.

Years ago, a client jokingly called me her “Magic 8 Ball”; and inspired me to offer up a twist on the old classic, with tiny (but powerful) nuggets of advice, intuition and encouragement created with YOU in mind. The project was originally intended to be an oracle deck, but spirit moved me to create something you could take everywhere instead. This is a sneak peek at the beta version, and even though it’s just the beginning, I hope you love it!
We’re all deeply intuitive beings, but sometimes the world is too noisy to hear our inner voice. I invite you to pause, take a deep breath, hold a question in your mind and tap the screen to get your answer.
What oracle wisdom did you receive? Did it resonate?

Collective Chakrascope Reading for the Week of September 9, 2019
In this reading, I share the images and subjects that come to mind as I sound into the general energies of the week ahead. For Chakrascopes for each of the signs, visit the horoscope section of 12Listen.com. For a personal chakrascope reading, see my list of email-based services.
A big sigh of relief. This week there is a big release of energy, a long out-breath after a deep inhale. Pressure that has been building up for awhile is now being relieved, so we can stop holding our breath. Forward momentum will begin this week for anyone who has been feeling stagnant and stuck. Alternatively, if things have been moving too fast, this is the week where you can finally start to relax.
Resonance and reflection of the moonlight. The underlying current in politics this week will be that of emotional volatility, vulnerability or secrets being brought to light. The curtain is being pulled back, either humanizing or demonizing in reveal. Female leaders will have stronger voices this week leading up to and beyond the full moon.
Removing the blindfold from Justice. More and more people are demanding transparency. This is particularly related to financial power, government and corporate corruption and the fair and balanced distribution of resources. I would say the motto for the week is "Take no sh*t, leave no sh*t" and relates to non-violent, intelligent demonstrations for physical and environmental well-being and the public good. A significant legal case will set a precedence that will be the first in the line of a stack of dominoes, opening doors of opportunity for similar cases to be heard.
Migration. Humans have been migrating since they first walked upright, seeking safety, resources, and opportunities in new places. It's natural. The artificial boundaries drawn by man and all the rules that go along with them are combating the spirit and heart of true globalization. Increasing impacts of climate change, extreme weather, and catastrophic environmental events will eventually force governments to adopt new policies for welcoming environmental refugees, and in the future, opening possibilities for all kinds of refugee situations. These artificial boundaries were created from a lower vibration. In the growing consciousness, these artificial lines will no longer make any logical sense. Start to catch whiffs of this future trend this week.
A growing light. The ratio of light to dark is widening as the heart of humanity grows brighter and brighter. Acts of kindness and altruism will be extremely potent as more people will be more receptive at all levels of consciousness. Many of you may have profound sensitivity towards any simple demonstrations of love you experience or witness this week. Be uplifted and you uplift each other.
The Inner Child says: The solution is vibrating at a different frequency than the problem.
Affirmation: I Build Bridges of Love.
Have a beautiful week!

REMEMBERING THE WISDOM OF THE ANCIENTS
In years long ago ancient cultures and civilizations taught core truths of how we each can achieve and maintain a level of harmony and balance. It seems so many today have forgotten the teachings of connecting to Nature and the Natural Fundamental Truths. So many have become wrapped up in the need to stay busy with our computers, social media, television, multiple electronic distractions causing a breakdown and even an avoidance of the very social-psychological need we were born with---connections with nature and with each other.
Perhaps if we were to access the ancient teachings that time seems to have forgotten we could begin recovering from the current world of disruption, confusion, and feelings of being lost without purpose. We might consider returning to the rhythmic representations of the Seasons of the Year and the Elements still utilized in Chinese Medicine modalities. The Ancient Ones knew and taught in order for each human to embrace balance and harmony, each person needed the simple understanding that each season was represented with an element, and each element was aligned with specific emotions. In addition, the elements hold vibrational resonance of color, sensory organs, and sound.
The Seasons of the Year, Spring -Summer-Harvest-Fall-Winter are associated with the Elements of Wood-Fire-Earth-Metal-Water. Each element in turn holds the resonance of a core emotion Anger-Joy-Compassion-Grief-Fear. The major sensory organs when in balance align with this teaching. The organs are Eyes (Vision), Tongue (Speaking and Communication), Mouth (Taste), Nose (Smell), and Ears (Hearing and Listening). Sound was connected to the elements also: Shouting, Laughter, Singing, Weeping, Groaning. Colors aligned with the entire system: Green-Red-Yellow-White-Black or Dark Blue.
Healers knew when a person was out of balance all aspects of the Seasons, the Elements, the Core Emotions, the sensory organs, the Sounds, and the Colors all had to come into functional agreement and complement each other.
In addition to this ancient system was the teaching of the Solstices and Equinoxes. Each offered specific actions associated such as Letting Go, Bringing In, Embracing Gratitude, Resting, and Laboring.
Perhaps if we each were willing to release the need to figure out what we needed to be content, harmonious, and balanced with our great minds...and instead utilized the ancient teachings aligned with Nature we would find our solutions have been in our backyards all along.
In future articles I will be giving you suggestions using various seasons , the elements, and associated principles along with activities you can implement in your personal life.

SPRING WIND ANGER EYES GREEN SHOUTING
SUMMER FIRE JOY TONGUE RED LAUGHTER
HARVEST EARTH SYMPATHY MOUTH YELLOW SINGING
FALL METAL GRIEF NOSE WHITE WEEPING
WINTER WATER FEAR EARS BLACK GROANING
By attuning into nature and natural laws, we may find the sense of balance and harmony that lives within our cellular memories that we have forgotten. It just might be worth your time and effort.

BitchScopes for the week of 9/9
There is no shortage of feelings this week. Expression will be the theme. Your passions and resentments will look for an outlet as this week is strongly influenced by the full moon. Your ego will struggle at times so you will be best served by channeling your drives and determination into art. Give your ego a voice. What is your secret all powerful desire? Voice it. Recognize it. Fantasize about it in a way that marries that desire with what you know your greatest gifts are. What does that look like? And why does it scare you? If you can allow your wounds and shadows a voice through any kind of artistic endeavor it will serve you tremendously. Therapeutic “automatic” painting comes to mind, as does dance. Utilize music to give old pain a voice and then let it go under the moon. You are not the person you were when you acquired those wounds and you’re about to step into a new energy where you don’t need their weight. Sunday treat yourself as though you’ve just had a major procedure performed and had something unhealthy removed. Be gentle and joyful for what comes next. You are unbound!
9/9 Mars trine Saturn - passion and perseverance
9/10 Sun opposite Neptune - easy to lose track of reality
9/12 Mars square Jupiter- initiative and drive!
9/13 Mercury conjunct Venus - softened communication.
9/13 Sun trine Pluto - personal transformation and deep experiences. Authority and power
9/14 Mercury enters Libra - Communication gains more tact and charm
9/14 Full Moon Pisces - the Harvest Full moon - the last full moon before the equinox and a new season. This has potential to be Emotional and transformational. This moon aspects a number of things, Pluto being the strongest. There is a strong psychic energy potential to pull from, as we harvest the results of our work since last June. Any emotional traumas or unexpressed feelings may push through during this time. Releasing ceremonies with water would be particularly helpful.
9/14 Mars opposite Neptune - not a great position for mars. Rather than exerting your will and ego, introspect and discover.
As I look at this month, I feel a lot of energy around getting our thoughts in alignment with our desires. There is a lot of Air in this months transits. In particular, Mercury makes some significant aspects to other planets, and the Virgo energy feels pretty loud. Look for themes around service, rescue, routine, habits, body, nervousness, mental energy, critical thinking, analysis, and discernment. I strongly sense that many people will experience a revisiting of old trauma(s). Trigger, trigger, trigger...old issues you haven’t considered in years may stop by for tea and an uncomfortable chat. But this is transitory and mostly mental energy, though you will probably feel it in your body to some extent. You’re meant to notice this (the body is really good at making us pay attention!), recognize how far you’ve come, and clear this for good. When you recognize these issues, don’t freak out. Unlike back when the trauma or crisis or body issue was occuring, NOW, you don’t need to be rescued by anyone...but YOU.
There is a lot of new, hopeful energy in the wings. As always, we are waiting for it to unfold. This is like the beginning of the 5th act of a play, or...one of my favorite words of all time...the denouement (de-new-moi). Or if you prefer to look at this as a Hero’s Journey, you’re about to cross the threshold and ressurect.
We will be tying all the plot lines up with a bow. But as this act opens, there may still be still tension, questions, some confusion which has to be resolved before you can claim long awaited victory. This may sound a little dramatic, but I truly feel that those of you who have really struggled this year are in such a story. Your breakthrough is happening right now, unseen by you. So get very clear and claim your story ending.
Because Virgo is an Earth sign, but ruled by the mind (Mercury) they tend to be very good manifestors. We all can, and should, harness this energy this month. So get Virgoan clarity about your goals, plans, dreams, wishes, desires, to-do lists, etc. Be practical, but don’t hold back. Spend some time looking at the words, and feeling them. Then let that list go. I like burying lists for Earth energy. Maybe mash it up and bury the pulp with a heart seed of some kind so when it sprouts, you can be reminded that you are sprouting too!
On the difficult side, body issues can come up, though for the most part I predict healing.
Speaking of healing, hold on to the nearest Capricorn because Saturn is going direct, and they are probably going to feel pretty friggin thrilled about it! This was a rough retrograde for Caps, and other earth signs as well. Make note of that date (9/18)...it is a turning point!
There’s a Full Moon on 9/14 in Pisces. This is the Harvest Full moon, directly leading up to the Fall Equinox on 9/22. (I guess you can get your Pumpkin Spice groove on now.) This full moon is the culmination of events for the last 6 months (back to March). We gather it all in and are fed/illuminated/satisfied. But this is also an emotional Full Moon, so keep your “feels” in order and lean into that Virgo logic. And there’s a New moon on 9/28 in Libra, which will bring balance to relationships and negotiations, and tact to our new projects.

ARIES I know you love to run, Aries, but whatever you’ve been trying to outrun, emotionally, may end up sleeping on your couch. As I was typing this, I heard “Old Love” by Eric Clapton in my head. I have not heard that song in years, so I’m including it here because it must be meaningful for some of you. What have you been trying to forget? What are you not able to get over? Conversely, you may be someone else’s old love. What has been overlooked here, is truth. Yours, someone else’s, whatever. I have to also say that your “old love” may not be a person, but a thing that you can’t let go of, an addiction that you began in order to cope which is no longer needed and is weighing you down. Time to deal. There are big things on your doorstep, so stop running out the back door and open the front one…
TAURUS A new day is dawning, T. The catch is, you have to own your own stuff. If you can, and you can hold yourself accountable, you could experience a huge uptick in status. But that means facing some of your shadows. That means controlling yourself, your impulses, your reactions. It means growing up a little, or a lot. That means, you may need to push yourself to ask for help or advice in some area. I feel recognition is a big theme for you this month.
GEMINI You may feel frustrated by the build up of mental energy. You are always a busy mind but this month it may be a challenge to keep yourself focused. Or you may be focused but just frustrated by others. Either way, impatience feels like your unfortunate room mate for a while. I do feel as September moves along that you will start to feel much more peaceful. By month end you’ll be feeling more yourself and more balanced. But at the start of this month, you may be over doing some aspect of your life - either the social part or the work part. Be aware of where your energy goes and try to keep it in alignment. This month feels like the foundations of great new partnerships trying to form. Eyes up.
CANCER You may feel daunted, even scared, about the road ahead. You just feel unsteady and unsure about how to accomplish it all. Mid month, however, you’ll feel a shift into calmer energy for you. Things will start to flow much more easily for you as we move into October. This month, there isn’t much you need to do except take care of yourself. You’ve made your lists, you’ve looked at options, you've done your due diligence. Now you just have to try to maintain awareness of yourself and take good care of your body. Your body is telling you things already...give it what it needs.
LEO You could feel frustrated by the lack of movement and action at the beginning of the month. You would like to feel progress, passion, movement, motion. But you may just find yourself looking at the same vision board, trying to intimidate it into action. What you need this month is to let go a little and have some fun. You’ve been very focused and dedicated lately and you need a little unscheduled, unplanned, unproductive time. Spontaneity will do your soul great good. And it may create the shift you need to find movement.
VIRGO Well this is your month. All the planets are at your party and you feel like you should be thrilled. But maybe you feel like you’re stuck in a fake it til you make it energy. Relax your face, let your hair down, take off your perfectly pressed pants. Give your self a moment of authentic feeling, even if you have to do it alone in your room. Feelings, you may recall, are those things that tend to happen in your heart, your gut...not the stuff in your head. Check in with your heart and see what it wants. Are you on the right path? Is it your path or is it someone else’s? You may be saying and doing all the right things but not feeling at all at home in your body. That is your clue that something is out of alignment. And there’s no better time than your birthday to get your self aligned.
You may be surprised what being honest with yourself does to shift things. Then you may be able to recognize how much life is really on your side, and the planets really ARE at your party…
LIBRA You may be doing some reflecting that isn’t all that productive, Libby. Don’t beat yourself up for things in your history. If you’re driving a car and are fixated on the rear view mirror, you will wreck We can all question why we chose certain things and what would have happened if we hadn’t etc. But have some faith that the Universe will take your choices and redirect your path. Eyes on the road ahead, Libra.
SCORPIO Your energy may have been dampened for the last couple months, but you should be starting to feel yourself coming back to the light. Take advantage of the invitations and he desire to socialize and mingle. There’s networking to be done and connections to be made and you will find that mixing a little business with pleasure may be very productive this month.
SAGITTARIUS The month may start off slow for you. Your fire might be a little bored. Even if there is a lot going on around you, it is probably mundane bullshit and petty crap and you of all people have no patience for that. The aspects you can not shirk have to do with family and it will require patience and gentleness on your part. Yes, you can do it. But as the month progresses, business and opportunities will start picking up and you may even find your self in the position of needed an assistant for something.
CAPRICORN You should do some stretching, Cappie. Because Saturn’s 5 month retrograde is coming to a close. Saturn has in your sign for the last couple years, and will remain there for another year-ish. But this retrograde may have seemed really restrictive for you. The shift into direct motion will surely be felt by you, moreso in October. But you have other reasons to take a nice deep breath as well. The work you’ve been diligently hammering away at for the last several months (retrograde did give you some serious focus) will start paying off, no matter what area of life you have been focused on.
AQUARIUS You may be waxing a bit nostalgic as the month begins, questioning if you did the right thing in a certain situation in the past. But toward the end of the month you may have a realization that you weren’t the asshole you judged yourself as. Things have a way of working out. And some of the things you’ve been frustrated about over the last few months will start to resolve this Fall You could be the recipient of more than one offer that you’ll have to consider. Stop questioning yourself and know your own worth.
PISCES You should check that you are not your own worst enemy this month. Procrastination (what? you?) and limitations that you’ve placed on some of your own achievements may tap you on the shoulder and encourage you to push for more. Virgo energy challenges you in really lovely ways. So this month’s energy overall could feel really energizing to you on many levels. You should be brave and try some things you haven’t tried before, or put yourself out there to be recognized in ways you’ve shied away from in the past.
The card I created for this week is an example of cutting out the images without being super detailed. The bird on the card has some white background around it and the pile of rocks have some background as well. In this case it doesn’t change the energy of the card. I share this card to show you that you can create your cards in whatever way works for you. They don’t have to be visually perfect. It’s not about the beauty, it’s about the energy. I will admit that I love making the cards attractive or artistic when possible. I just can’t help myself.

The radiant poem project
Welcome to The Radiant Poem Project! In this weekly project, we are delving into the world of poetry to enhance our lives, our relationships, and the way that we care for ourselves. This week’s poem is “Love,” by Carol Ann Duffy.
We are coming up to a Pisces full moon early on Saturday morning.
Pisces is a water sign. Many people associate water signs with emotions and think of them as weak. Yet, all around us we are seeing the effects of water as a force of nature, a strength as strong as fire. The watery feeling parts of us are strong, are unwaveringly brave.
Pisces says, I surrender, I offer my life up to a higher force. I surrender my deepest heart and I know whatever is meant to happen will happen. The ultimate form of trust is to be willing to offer things up to the unknown.
At the same time, we are in Virgo season, an earth sign. The Virgo energy in us says, wait a minute, what are you talking about? I’m not going to surrender anything, idiots! LOL I’m not going to go get my things in order. In fact, I’m going to go clean out my closet. I’m going to color code my books and buy an organizing system. Virgo is practical.
So, to have both of these energies happening–the earthy Virgo energy and the mutable Pisces energy--can create some tension. Just notice that this week. This week’s poem really gathers together the Pisces energy and the transition season we are in.
“Love” by Carol Ann Duffy is our poem this week. Duffy is a Welsh poet who spent quite a bit of time as the Poet Laureate of Great Britain. She is incredibly good at describing emotional states. The poem is constructed as a love poem from the speaker to the beloved, but it is also a love poem from the outer world to the speaker. What we are going to do, though, is read it as a love poem to ourselves! After, of course, marveling at Duffy’s talent.
by Carol Ann Duffy
Love is talent, the world love's metaphor.
Aflame, October's leaves adore the wind,
its urgent breath, whirl to their own death.
Not here, you're everywhere.
The evening sky
worships the ground, bears down, the land
yearns back in darkening hills. The night
is empathy, stars in its eyes for tears. Not here,
you're where I stand, hearing the sea, crazy
for the shore, seeing the moon ache and fret
for the earth. When morning comes, the sun, ardent,
covers the trees in gold, you walk
out of the season, out of the light love reasons.
Read our poem, “Love,” at least two times.
Once, as if the you in the poem is someone or something that you love.
The second time through, let the you be YOU! Imagine you are reading this poem to yourself.
Now, keep going. Maybe the you is your Higher Power, or the Divine. Maybe it’s Mother Nature.
This is a poem that is laden with metaphor. To me, it’s a very Piscean poem because the speaker is in the middle of everything. The speaker is feeling everything, she/he feels the night’s empathy, the stars as tears, hears the sea, notices how much the sun is in love with the trees. This is also what you are. You are all of these things. You are the sun. You are the earth. You are walking toward yourself in every moment.
The final suggestion I have for you is to use this poem in devotion to the person that you are. Not in a narcissistic way. Rather, it’s like this: Guess what, I’m here! I’m alive. I see the cool things about me and I’m going to celebrate them!
It’s an act of magic that any of us are here so why waste any more time saying anything negative to yourself ever again? This is your life alone. And, you are not alone.

At last, the Psychic Sisters have released their oracle deck and book set. Pick up your copies today!
Here is what Kristi has to say about her
brand new oracle deck:
"Kindred Spirits Energy Oracle has been in my head for a decade. I have spent hundreds of hours writing, thinking, planning, and designing the cards. The artwork is Fractal Art. Fractals are mathematical equations that create geometric forms. They are the closest visual representation to what energy looks like to me. I have been reading energy bodies, energy connections and the energy of situations all my life. Putting what I see into words and images is challenging. English does not have the words to describe what energy looks like in my head. Fractals have helped me express the way I see energy.
Thank you for reading,
have a wonderful week!
