We have all survived another retrograding. In the next week The Shadow Effect will be diminishing and from then on if our computers or communications get messed up, we can’t blame Mercury. We do need to keep an eye on Mother Moon though, she goes Dark on Sunday night. Often this will feel similar to a Full phase, and those can be wild.
My erranding today was brief, and delayed slightly by the continual construction I keep finding my wee self elf in the middle of.
Not my fault. It’s still freaking every damn where I go. Well, not on my trudging route. That’s just the neighborhood, and so far they’ve left me alone there. In fact, I have some updates from my walk this afternoon. The Hello Kitty toy was NOT under the hedge, so that was good. And that broken chair back/seat was also gone. Whew.
Remember that one single yellow iris I spotted? Well the entire patch of them has bloomed beautifully now. The house they belong to is a duplex, and has had a For Rent sign in the window of this side since I started my weekly wanderings. As of today, the sign is gone. I guess I have new neighbors now.
How cute is this little guy?! Okay, he might be a she, I didn’t pick him/her up to check underneath and inspect his/her business. But I did enjoy seeing him/her looking up at me and posing so nicely for my camera.
I lost track of the feather count again. (It happens!) But I know the number was more than five, or maybe seven. Either way, the big black ones seemed to get larger the more I saw. (One was just huge!) Two small puffy gray ones. THAT I’m sure of.
I didn’t realize how new the tops of my tennies looked until I had put up that last picture of my shod hooves. So I figured, in Full Disclosure mode here, I should show you what the bottoms look like. Definitely several years worth of marching done on these suckers.
We’ve come back around to the The Crystal Oracle Deck on our card altar this afternoon. And it goes REALLY well with the last few we’ve been getting. (Theme!)
“Gold with Quartz ~ physically grounding, abstract ideas and inspirations.
Several wonderful ideas and inspirations are filtering through into your physical reality. These ideas and inspirations, which stem from your soul, will help you manifest many of the things your heart has, for so long, desired.
Over the coming days your intuition will be strong and you will have a greater sense of the universal spirit that flows through all things. Through this, a new found sense of joy and wonder emerges – one which transforms your life. Give thanks for this blessing and allow it to inspire and illuminate your heart and mind. Your ideas and inspirations are divinely guided, so trust them.”
I do love me some validation! And I continue to love how these cards are done. This is very encouraging. Especially the uber positive bit about feeling a sense of joy. We can always use some of that!
(Although I would question the part about inspirations coming ONLY from our souls. But, that’s just me.)
Speaking of inspirations! I got more on my Marian messages last night. (Yes, I know [now!] that I spelled that wrong before, but if I go back and fix it now the RSS feeds [or whatever the hell that’s called] will reflect that I posted today’s yesterday. I know, it confuses me too. So I don’t go back and re-read or edit anything after I’ve had Daniel go over them and I hit Post. My flaws are just up here for all the world to see.)
What I received was that some of this information is about me being a mother, and being able to take care of, help, and assist my kids, as well as other kids, and other people in general, by continuing to do what I do. Basically, I’m on the right path, and doing what I’m supposed to be doing. So, that was pretty cool.
This one was accompanied by the text: makeshift dining area. How adorable is that? They will be renting a big truck in the next few days and getting everything into the new place. I can’t wait to go see it. And thanks to Adam’s parents (and their generous left-overs) there will be a futon in the living room. Suitable for guests sleeping on, in addition to being quite lovely as a sofa.
