Depending on the time of year (and how much I’ve been outside that week), the vibrancy of my tattoos change.  It’s because of my skin tone, not because of the age of that ink.

            The blood and bone structure of many nations lies under my epidermal layer.  Obvious to anyone who sees me.  I am a mix, and it shows.

            Most of the people that I know, are of a similarly blended background style.  This fact, and the truth that in our past lives we’ve been every shade of humanity, is the reason bigotry is so completely asinine and ignorant.

            It is also why our message today is focused on:

addressing and acknowledging diversity.

             For all of our beautiful differences, we are the same.  We’re individuals in a group.  We are unique, and we are together.  Together, whether we like it or not.  May as well accept it!

             The daily draw to which I was directed this morning is a message that’s echoing where we are astrologically.  And in many senses, just where we are.


“Unexpected Visitors  ~  41  ~  

‘If you expect the unexpected, you’ll be prepared for miracles.’

Detours, surprises, and paradigm shifts . . . expect the unexpected.  No matter how detailed your plans are, and how clear you believe the road ahead to be, there are times when the best plans are waylaid by unforeseen circumstances. 

At first, detours may seem inconvenient, but a surprise turn of events signals that the adventure of life is beginning to get interesting.  No one can plan for synchronicity – for fate and destiny to meet – except Spirit, who knows what you can’t comprehend for now.

Life is full of surprises, so stay on your toes and enjoy this exciting new adventure you weren’t expecting.  There is a plan for your life that may not match up with your agenda.”

same as yesterday and the day before.  There are changes coming, and apparently, some surprises, too.

  1. Interesting about the ink; the Mrs. (who is 1/4 Finnish) and I have identical tats that look very different. Hers often look flat, until she puts some lotion on them, and then they pop out. My oldest one is finally starting to show some fading, hers are not. I will have to pay attention to the sun exposure aspect now. And expect the unexpected.

  2. Never really thought about tats changing with the season. Huh.

    Never did understand why people judge others by race, religion, ethnicity, etc… SUPPOSEDLY we all came from the SAME place!!!

    I’ve already had “unexpected”! I don’t need another one! (GAH! A phone call just gave me another something. ***headdesk*** ) I’m going now…

  3. Ally and Robin,
    it took me years to realize why so many people kept asking me if I’d gotten new ink. And it never happened when I HAD just been in the chair for new work. It was the seasons, and the color or shade of my skin……
