Some days are more spiritual than others.  Some, enormously physical.  And others, very kitchen-y.  This afternoon, I ended up with a combo plate of all three.

             It was, to my ALMOST surprise, on the comforting side.  And hoo  baby, the messages are just zoomin’ in right now.   Like this, which is NOT our daily channeled one, simply a bonus!  The angels would like to remind us that:

as we help others, so we are, too, helping ourselves.

             Nice, huh?  It’s takes us back to that theme of Self Care, only on a larger and more global scale.  The more we help, the more we ARE helped.

             And first thing today,  what I woke up with was this:

judgement/decision making.

             Which sounded like we possibly needed to stay cautious about  (potentially) JUDGING others.  (Or, ya know, that part could have just been for me.)  Might also have been about Discernment again, too though.

             On our card altar, we’ve returned to the regular rotation, landing us directly *ON* the Self-Care stack.

self-care oracle card messages

“Passion  ~

Resurrect a childhood dream.

Let your passion take flight.”

             For the first time, in AGES, this illustration actually fits the definition.  Mostly.  And, in a way, it ties these signs all together.  When we live passionately, genuinely, helping as we go along, we aren’t so apt to spend time focusing on the lives (and decisions) of others.

Today’s Deck:

Self-Care Cards by Cheryl Richardson

Today’s Mileage:

was in two parts.  I went to the gym (not the library AND the gym, just the gym), then back to The Burrow.  When Dan left for work, I pedaled down to our closest grocery store, because I needed a couple of items, for 12.311 miles total, in one hour 8 minutes and 45 seconds, with a ridiculously quick pace of 10.7 MPH average speed.  It was VERY windy, so I have no clue how I went that fast.

Today’s Marketing:

is a Facebook thing that I “needed” to create.  For those of you who don’t FB, here’s what I posted:


Okay, this is how we’re gonna work this. I have been directed to offer a fabulous bargain, so here goes.


This is the perfect time of year to get yourself a Tarot card reading and give one away to a friend or family member. 

My e-mail is in the header, drop me a note. Put SALE READING in the subject line and we’ll put you (and your loved one) on the schedule.
(This is a limited-time offer, so jump on it now. When the Solstice rolls around, the SPECIAL will be gone.)

             Feel free to participate.   Or (AND!) share this around with anyone you think might be interested.

Tonight’s Sharing:

is also the photo I used on that FB post.

So damn gorgeous!

             This was taken by Corina, who, I am pleased to announce,  has a wonderful NEW JOB!!!  Congratulations and YIPEE!

  1. Congratulations Corina! And what a beautiful pic.
    Look at you Juliewitch – marketing a special on facebook. You’ve come so far!

    Hee hee, pretty cool, huh? 😛

    12:31 a.m.

    1. Thank you!!! And, again, thank you!!! 🙂

      But ya know, J3 and I are going to miss you on these late nights,
      when no one is up but us. 😉

  2. For me, the decision making was that Tom finally decided to hire me, over two weeks after our interview… and I will eventually be helping others, as he plans to eventually have me going into people’s homes to work with them on their remodel designs. (I start out learning the products and the software that is used to make 3-D mock-ups of the designs, will then also do phone customer service, then eventually the client visits and design from start to finish.) AND I used to design floor plans for houses on graph paper for “fun” as a child… seriously… and I fantasize home design in my daydreaming time…so this job is completely a resurrection of a childhood dream. 😀

    And the answer to my prayers and manifestation efforts, as the call about the opportunity came out of the blue, when I VERY VERY much needed it. I totally credit the angels with this one! One reason it took so long for Tom to decide was that he wasn’t completely sure that he was ready to take this step in our uncertain financial climate, and also he wants someone who will be with the company for years, so wanted to make sure he was getting the right person. I have been continuing to ask The Angels for help, asking The Universe to make it happen, visualizing myself working there, and visualizing deposits into my bank account. And I kept the faith that everything would be OK, even though my former self would’ve been freaking the fuck out because if this job hadn’t come in, if something hadn’t changed with my situation, I would’ve had to move in with abusive/hoarder Mom… but I steered myself away from fear-based thinking, and stayed very positive throughout the waiting period. And, of course YOUR messages were very encouraging and very much helped me do so! So I am totally chalking this one up to Faith, Angels, Julie, and the power of positive visualization! I’m sure the Angels were whispering in Tom’s ear. 🙂

    I drew floor plans too!!!
    This is SUCH a cool and wonderful opportunity for you. What an exciting next step.

  3. Yep, the universe is attuned. Well done, Corina! Happy new job and resurrection of an old dream. WooHoo!! And it sure was windy yesterday…

    I’m very over this wind……….

    11:11 p.m.

  4. Fabulous, Corina. Congrats! That’s a gorgeous photo.
    And hey, good to see your FB marketing skills, Julie. I’m still battling a virus and fuzzy head, reading a lot, sleeping a lot, not getting much real work done but not seeming to mind that either. 😉

    When we need to rest,
    we simply need to rest!

  5. Hey Julie, I have tried to find you on facebook to no avail! Maybe you could mention the name of your site every so often because when I searched and got urthalun tarot readings, nothing comes up. I’m in outside water these days, but will try to come by and say hello.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    (We miss you.)

    11:13 p.m.

  6. OK I searched your blog page and got the urthalun tarot name but couldn’t find that on facebook at all.

    I don’t know why it doesn’t come up in a search. Damn them!

    But it’s here on the page in two spots. Always at the very bottom of each post in the clump of wee icons, and in the middle column after RECENT COMMENTS but right before PAGAN HIGH HOLY DAYS. It’s called MY FACE ON FACEBOOK with a clickable link and the same gravatar photo that you can click on for the Twitter connection.

    I also addressed it tonight.

    11:16 p.m.

  7. Congrats Corina on the job! Woo hoo! Very happy for you!

    Okay, today’s card comes in right after my BFF asked last night if he should start “nagging the shit out of me” to get back to revising my novel; writing being my childhood dream. I told him yes last night, totally without reading this post until this morning, so the timing is right.

    Julie: good for you on the marketing front! I will share the info on FB when I get on it today.

    Looks like it’s going to be a gorgeous day today in Seattle-land, so maybe I’ll even get out and get a walk. I’m not gaining weight, but I’m certainly not losing any either.

    Did the weather hold so you could make a jaunt around the block?

    Also, thank for sharing me around. 😛
