This is being pre-written, and it will auto-post while I’m gone.  Wanna know why?  Cuz it’s Family Fair Day!  (Minus one, but I’ve texted with her, and we’re planning next year’s event already, so I’m hopeful on that front.)

             The fancy-pants phone’s alarm worked well for an early (that’s right, BEFORE noon) wake-up call.  (Even though I can’t find the “alarm only” volume setting.  Dan showed me, but I’m not sure I believe him yet.)  So here I am, being all efficient and shit.

             That’s what I woke up with.  Which made me laugh, because the four of us will be in a car together for over two hours.  And wandering the exhibits the entire day.  Thanks, Universe.

             Back within our regular rotation, I was directed to go with just one of these.  And look, kind of validating, it turns out.

“Change  ~  X  ~  Major Arcana

Life repeats itself mindlessly, unless you become mindful……

The symbol in this card is an enormous wheel representing time, fate, karma.  Galaxies spin around this constantly moving circle, and the twelve signs of the zodiac appear on its circumference.  Just inside the circumference are the eight trigrams of the I Ching, and even closer to the center are the four directions, each illuminated by the energy of lightning.

The spinning triangle is at this moment pointed upward, toward the divine, and the Chinese symbol of yin and yang, male and female, creative and receptive, lies at the center.

It has often been said that the only unchanging thing in the world is change itself.  Life is continuously changing, evolving, dying and being reborn.  All opposites play a part in this vast circular patter.

If you cling to the edge of the wheel you can get dizzy.  Move toward the center of the cyclone, knowing that this too will pass.”

Today’s Reminder:

is also for me, because I keep seeing the note I wrote on the day we drew that card.  Has everyone been practicing their Golden Path meditation?  Because this illustration would be ideal for a starting point, or a destination.

  1. Wow, I don’t think I’ve been to a state fair in years. The one in Washington is too hard to even get to (years ago, after waiting in a line so long we couldn’t even see the entrance for over an hour, we gave up) and no one else wanted to go to the Oregon one. I hope you all had an excellent time, even in the drive up and back!

    Right now, I’ve been doing poorly in my job, not putting in enough time and thus way behind in writing new stuff we need soon. So I’ve got to kick my butt this week and just do it and hope I haven’t screwed myself with this client. Sigh.

    Take some of those nieces and nephews!
    (The lines are hardly ever like that, I promise.)

  2. Hope the fair was a blast, as usual. Still don’t care for Osho…

    As usual, very entertaining.

  3. “Life repeats itself mindlessly, unless you become mindful……” So very true.
    I put up a blogpost with a meditation on it. Think you will like it.
    Have fun storming the castle – or, at the fair, as it were.

    Heading over there as soon as possible.
