There has been quite a bit of (partially self-induced) chaos lately. As such, a festive occasion came and went, with nary an acknowledgment. For shame! So, let’s begin by remedying that situation, right freaking now.
I’d like to extend a personal message to my outstandingly, fabulously, and overwhelmingly generous sister-in-California Michelle and her Beloved, the most awesome and terrific Bruce. I hope Saturday was wonderful, filled with love and gifts. 29 years is nothin’ to sneeze at! Happy (belated) Anniversary to you both.
Okay, felicitations out of the way, warmest and most heartfelt salutations sent, let’s keep moving along (I am kinda late tonight). We went out this afternoon on our bikes (and later in the car), seeing many vehicles from lots of places, gobs of which were not here local.
Trust me when I say this one was from Arkansas. Right after we spotted, and tried to get out of the way of, this guy, Dan saw a Minnesota motor home, then we saw two MORE Minnesotas. Followed by a New Mexico. And then, we saw something completely different.
Rabbits. In the park. With little cotton-tails and everything! About 20 feet from the pathway. NOT. EVEN. KIDDING. I nearly fell over trying to stop quickly, and yet not alarm them. I needn’t have worried. Dan walked up on the adorable pair, fairly closely, to get this phone photo. I was too shocked to manage digging my camera out of our bag and then running it.
And in Clean All The Things news, here is the new version of our card altar, same configuration, but more elbow-room.
There is less risk of the entire mess just flinging it’s Magickal self elf to the floor this way (the tabletop is now actually screwed on to the base). Also, when we get back from our weekend adventure, I’ll put some of those others (that we’ve taken out of the rotation but who still seem to call out for attention) in a separate row close to the wall. I feel as though there will be more movement of these decks, but not sure how that’ll end up yet.
I’m going to take these cards with me, along with my Robin Wood Tarot. When I got up today, this one wanted to be our daily message.
“Angel Of Psychic Ability ~
Your intuition and psychic abilities are strong and present.
Your intuitive and psychic abilities are very strong and this gives you the ability to see through things. You are being urged to pay particular attention to what you sense and feel, rather than what you are told and shown.
Trust your instincts when you are around particular people or situations. You will instinctively know what is right for you. Regardless of the statistics or how professionally it is presented, if something doesn’t feel right for you, then it’s not.”
I know that some folks may automatically react by shying away from this type of omen (and not just because of those absurdly drawn eyes). But don’t, okay? Give her a chance. Sit with this image, and the words, quietly for just one full minute. Then let it all go, asking that your inner guidance (no matter what you call it) be strong and loud.
If you feel like adding in some of your own belief system’s iconography or phrasing, please do so. If this is plenty for now, go with that. Just DO hold this message close. It feels VERY important that we all stay alert for our inner voices, our Team, our angels, our guides, and our loved ones on the Other Side. They really are working diligently so that we can hear them and heed them.

As stated over there <——– under the heading of Additional Helpful Reminders, we, The Pentacle People (plus Adam) are going on a journey. Hanny had suggested a family camping trip last month. But we couldn’t quite get that together, so we’ve revised our plan and we’re heading to Portland next weekend. She’s found and reserved us a budget hotel (one that accepts dogs, natch). The first clump of us arrives on Friday, and some combination will stay through Monday.
So far, the sight-seeing request list includes: Powell’s, OMSI (?), a pool supply place, and the zoo. A partial contingent may also attend a scheduled fight on Saturday evening, but that’s not confirmed. Otherwise, we’re mostly just going to be ourselves and wander from eating-and-drinking place to eating-and-drinking place.
