Iwill call in my party animal that cleanses and heals through joyous song. I will sing up a party with my friends to call in a new fresh cycle of life.

Many different frog families call Australia home, but the best known is the ubiquitous green tree-frog which is found across the northern part of Australia. Green frogs are nocturnal; they usually rest during the day and go out hunting at night. During the Wet season a green frog can lay up to 2,000 eggs which will become tadpoles and then develop into frogs within six weeks.

The green frog is another native Australian who likes sharing space with humans and tends to return to its selected home, even if you disturb its shelter. These frogs like cool, damp places and love living in toilets which is the real reason why you’ll find signs across northern Australia asking you to please close the toilet seat. This keenness for closed toilet seats is not because all Australians are avid followers of the principles of Feng Shui; it’s just disconcerting when you flush a toilet in North Queensland to disturb anything up to 30 frogs from their refuge.

If you have chosen frog, now is a good time to wash away any negativity you have felt and take joy in a new cycle of rain and life. It’s time to cleanse on all levels, the physical, the intellectual, the emotional and the spiritual.

Frog calls you to sing together with your friends, to celebrate the birth of a new life cycle with a happy song.

With frog, every day is a fresh new start and a chance to sing a new song with like-minded friends.

If you feel you are becoming bogged down in muddy emotions or in the dust of your day-to-day life you can use frog magic to call up the waters and sing a new song like frogs.

Don’t forget: frogs always call up a frog party as well as the rain. It’s time to party with your friends, and sing a happy song to refresh and heal.
