No, that title has NOTHING to do with weight. We do not discuss weight issues here in JulieLand. (Mostly because I am wearing my fat pants right now, but ignore that I mentioned it.) My post tonight is going to be a weak and watered down version of my usual verboseness (that’s a word, now). Getting home from the mall at many minutes after ten makes me a very tired witch. So I am only going to offer a few photos and some more observations. Although, technically, these are things I overheard.
When Em and J.D. and I were at the food and gift sale thingie we heard a woman say this to her son: …or you won’t get yer treats from WalMart!
Today as I was walking past Lady Foot Locker I heard a man say to his wife: wait, look at these. Her reply: they’s got good ones at Costco.
There is a booth down the way from us selling Jose Eber hair appliances, aggressively selling them too. One guy was standing next to the chair they entice prospective buyers to sit in, waving his curler or straightener or whatever he had in his hand at a young woman who made the mistake of not averting her eyes as she passed. This is what he said to her: do you wear make up? Because I wear make up. (Did I mention they sell HAIR products here, and NOT make up?!)
Being in the mall is just so fascinating to me. I hardly ever go there the rest of the year. When I am forced to spend excessive hours around shoppers, consumers, and sales people, it is endlessly entertaining.
Our card today was from my working deck and it sort of slanted off the stack as I was turning it over, so I am going to read it with all its aspects. (They do this sometimes, we just go with it.) You may also notice that the Powers That Be are still giving us messages having to do with words and language, not a huge shock, but there ARE other suits in this deck.
Four of Swords
Fours are a foundation, they have to do with balance and a firm grounding, like four legs on a stable chair. Although in this image we see one below and three above, so we need to consider (especially with this card throwing itself at us in a slightly contrary manner) that we are looking at a transition. Either out of, or into, a more stable and secure situation.
When this particular card is drawn direct, with no question of contrariness, it means a very restful and calm time. Meditative in fact. But as I said, it wasn’t that precise when it showed up. So I tend to think of the message here as moving away from or towards that aspect.
If you have experienced a tumultuous time recently then a more serene period is coming up. On the other hand, if your life has been sort of slow presently, and you are feeling a bit like the person on the slab, I would say it is time to get up and move. You have all the words (Swords) and paperwork you need to work with now, so put them to use.
My first thought as I saw this card being all side-ways was that we are all such different types of people, going through different life lessons right now, and we are all constantly cycling, this one wanted to make sure everybody got the right message.
Bottom line right now is: wise administration as we move into the next phase of our Swords related situation. Think clearly and precisely. Rest if you are feeling overwhelmed, with prayer, meditation, or affirmations to help you heal. Get up and make a difference if you have had a nice rest recently, using your Sword as the direct and sharp tool you need to cut through the crap in front (or hanging over) you.
Late update. Look who was here when I got home tonight. This is Coco, the ball python. He lives with Empress, but she is trying to move into a better living situation, so he will be staying over for a bit. It’s nice to have a snake in the house again.
