Heath alert! Health alert! I’m sneezing my fool head off here; yet another distraction, once again eroding my concentration. The same day my back went all message-y on me, I also came down with some sort of nose condition. Not a cold exactly, but one of those obnoxious congestion situations.
It started raining on Friday, so I already knew that the barometer on the front of my face would be bothered and trying to get my attention. I’m pretty sure the Anti-Inflammatory Lemonade helped that condition as much as it helped my muscles and joints. (How could it NOT?!) But now it’s all gone, I finished it this morning. I think a new batch needs to be made.
On the reading front, I’ve got one down, three more books to go. And in biking news, we have a sporty new garment in the house, plus a wonderful new outdoor-wear plan.
Because we can’t afford those super expensive (and properly fitted) raingear* pants, we’ve gone with an alternative. Last year for his birthday Daniel received a gift card from his wonderful parents. He used it to purchase a pair of high quality running/exercise-y trousers. He’s worn them in plenty of wet weather, and stayed relativity dry (or at the very least, dried off quickly). His suggestion was that perhaps this might work for me.
*Difference of something that runs around $130 vs less-than-twenty-bucks.
Tonight we found some not-name-brand type, at a very reasonable price, and close to a correct size. (Yeah, and those two SALE shirts, one green one white.) So we got ‘em. We’ll take the new clothes out for a test ride soon, because the rain is back. For good probably.
No luck on the hairbrush. Possibly THAT will be our errand tomorrow before pool time. Today though, on our card alter, we’ve been given a inspiring, and interesting, message.
“Crocoite ~ change, creativity, sexuality
A new phase in your life is just around the corner. Creative possibilities surface from a chance encounter with someone new. This encounter stimulates inspiration, passion, and a greater optimism for life.
Your sexual energy is also on the rise and this draws new people and circumstances into your life that you will find exciting and stimulating. Wonderful changes are in store for you, yet you are also being warned to be cautious.
Appearances can often be deceiving so look for inner beauty and truth before you allow yourself to be swept off your feet.”
I like how this stone looks so much like coral. I have no clue how it appears in real life, but the photo is fascinating. True, too, change is absolutely in the air. Here’s a piece of a larger article Corina sent me,
“…..for the first time in two years–the MOON enters Libra, without SATURN sitting there.
SATURN is an ultimate point of constriction and the one who makes the physical existence possible. If we did not have the ability to ‘constrict,’ and lower our vibration to being dense enough to be “physical,” then we may not exist. So we thank Saturn for this service to existence, and also feel the FREEDOM of Libra, after Saturn has done its work, and left! We are free. This freedom is about authenticity in relationship and socially, at work and at play. We went through two years of ‘killing off all the falsity,’ and now we can find or augment our light heart, possibly buried under two years of change rubble.
Now SATURN has entered the deep realm–the places we don’t always like to visit, like toilets, plumbing, intestines, shadow side, roots, and deep wells of power that may currently be hidden, covered or lost. Now we face two years of SATURN in Scorpio. We are getting into some grunge and clearing shadow, wherever needed, for two years. Whatever strength may have been built in relationships while SATURN was in Libra, will now be put to the test, as we ‘take it deeper‘.”
This was super validating, for today’s draw as well as the signs of Breaking Free we’ve been getting as well. I’m looking forward being able to Transition with more positive energy, not something I was able to do well in the past. But I’m gettin’ better!
