We have our charts, blueprints, road maps, for the journey in this life.  However, we can’t always read them, for whatever reason.

            That’s the irritating part.  Knowing that we’re on the right track can be the comforting part.  But, it’s absolutely of leap of faith, an act of confidence.

             All of this means that we have a purpose.  We are here for specific reasons and to attain specific results.  That’s the point of what I saw this morning.

             How we get there is not always as important as our end result.

             Because when we are ARE on the correct path we can feel it.  We are aware of our serenity.  We aren’t fighting every step of the way.  When we are following our chart to it’s fullest, our lessons are easier, our moments of worry not so deep and painful.

             And how we settle our feet there, that best route for us, is never as important as simply knowing the avenue is open and that we are welcome to walk it.

             Who we walk it with, well, here’s what the Universe has to say about that.

“Friendship  ~

Make a date for a play day with one or more friends.

Although you are busy with many responsibilities, it’s important to take time out to play with one or more friends.  By drawing this card, you’re  urged to make a date to go have fun with a companion.  Whether a new acquaintance or a beloved old friend, it’s important for you to balance your schedule with some good old-fashioned companionship and frivolity.

When you play and laugh, you open yourself to infusions of healing love.  Friends help you remember how lovable you are!  They also give you support without wanting anything in return.

Play stimulates creativity, which helps you return to your responsibilities with a renewed outlook and increased energy.  


I now have wonderful friends, and free time to spend engaging in playful activities with my loving companions.”

             Look at this illustration!  Mermaid and manatee tea parties!  Yes, thanks, I’d like to go there and play.

             Right, but can’t right now, so let’s do the next best thing.  Chat with on-line pals, catch up on e-mails to buddies far and wide, and sure, go do something fun with a friend in person, too.  Pick one, pick any, pick all.  Just make sure you have some friendship time.

  1. Oh, I love this card and message. Without knowing it, I’ve been doing exactly that! Also I know exactly what you’re talking about with the sense of serenity and being on the right path. That’s how I feel in school.

    Yep, when ya feel it, ya know.

  2. Hmm, a tea party with mermaids and manatees. Sounds like my circle of friends. Think I will go have one.

    It sounded lovely to me, too.

  3. Ooooo, a play date is something I could definitely use! And, Squee!, I have internet again!

    I ‘saved’ the link to the CSA. I’m definitely going to be looking around to see what I’ve got near me. I remember my dad used to buy a side of beef every year from someone he knew at work. Much better than store bought. I try to hit the farmers’ markets in the summer, but sometimes I don’t get there in time. Around here they’re usually held in a store parking lot from about 3-5 or 6 pm. I like the idea of the box of stuff from the same place every time.

    Yay for functioning internet!

  4. I’m sure there are CSAs in Seattle. But right now I’m content with my housemates buying the groceries (since they are allowing me to use my funds on my own personal expenses). They buy organic as much as possible, but I don’t think they are ready for a CSA. We need to learn to eat more vegies.

    And I need to set up a time with my fake-niece to begin teaching her crochet. The depression has made me unsociable and I’ve refused to do things with people. I think I’m now in a place where I can happily spend time with her and not drag her into my mess. And she’s fun.

    You’ve had all day,
    did you set up your play date yet?

    1. She’s 15. She said she’ll get back to me when she figures out a time, but I expect it will be mid-March at this point. But she invited me to see her jazz choir sing at a festival on March 8.

  5. Love this. I read it last night on the train to see a good old friend – having resolved this year to stop working so hard and have good friendy fun-times *at least* once a week. We all need reminding sometimes.
    And, of course, reading those maps and legends alone can be hard. At confusing times, all the lines blur. Friends help us get our maps the right way up and see the sense in them once again. Mine did last night – I had a great time, a great talk, yummy homebrew and came home smiling, feeling inspired and happy to be who I am.
