We went to hang out with Mom and Dad this afternoon, getting home slightly late (duh). We began clearing out the camper. In preparation for sale. Which is sad, but necessary. Empress and Maxx were along for the ride.
If you are an Instagram* person, you can see a picture there. If not, here’s another view. My mother is not ill, in fact she was so lively that she flung her tiny self into this pose. The better to show off her sweaters and afghans.
*From their Search bar you can find me under: UrthaLun or my full name (Julie Hanavan Olsen).
She was laughing about having so much in brown right now, then she said, “well, it is fall. And I’m brown too!”
Both statements are true. As is our channeled message. Earlier, straight out of bed, here is what I woke up with:
directly facing current challenges
ensures that they become the past.
I kept this in mind while we sorted and tossed. Allowing my feelings to be there, then releasing them. If I’d had to spend any MORE time in that camper, I don’t think I could have gotten through it. But it worked out. And I’m hugely grateful.
The messenger who showed up on our card altar was immensely helpful, as well gently encouraging. And, as you’ll see in the definition, it’s über timely!
“Hare ~ Gearr (pronounced as Gy-arr, with an accent over the a) ~
Rebirth, Intuition, Balance
The card shows the original hare of Britain – the Arctic hare which was later replaced by the common brown hare, probably imported by the Romans from the plains of central Europe. It is nearly dawn but we can still see the moon in the sky. In the background stands a dolmen – symbol of rebirth – and in the foreground we can see a lapwing’s nest, with the eggs which were said to have been brought by the hare. Harebell, hare parsley, and hare’s foot clover grow close by.
Gearr brings us the benefits of balance and intuition, of promise and fulfillment. The hare is a creature of the Goddess, the moon and the night, and yet also represents the dawn, brightness, and the east. It is the most adept of animals at shape-shifting: we can never be sure exactly where the hare is – in this or the Otherworld. It represents intuition, which makes things appear suddenly in our consciousness, like the lapwing eggs of Eostre, that magically appear in the hare’s form (nest).
As representative of the Corn Spirit and the two equinoxes, the hare brings the excitement of rebirth, fertile abundance, and willing release as each creative cycle comes to an end. With the hare as your ally you will be well able to negotiate times of change, and you will be able to draw on your intuition to guide you through life.”

As my father used to say, if I had a brain I’d take it out and play with it. I just remembered, that you can see the Instagram pics from Twitter. Which is live on the very left-hand side of this site. Jeez. Please excuse my sieve brain.
