Yesterday we spoke of our Acceptance around the All. Today, we’re hearing some details. And a fine-tuning has occurred.
Which, not coincidentally in any sort of way, is ideal for this particularly festive calendar event.
Large and Small
At 3:30 this afternoon (my time), we reached an equal: day and night. From now on, we are heading into the growing, warming, lit-for-longer part of the year.
As we know that ups-downs are our standard, so too, are light and dark. Our journey is not about the destination, it’s about the traveling. Through good/bad, through dim/bright. And, of course, everything in between.
Grays, we travel through lots and lots of grays. Because, that’s how we learn. And when we learn, our journey becomes more fun.
For this holiday, we move to our Special Occasion draw. And oh, how VERY appropriate it is!
“Dog ~ 26 ~ Loyalty
As a demonstration of loyalty in its purest form, Dog embodies unconditional love, faith, and tolerance. To treat a Dog with respect and commitment will see it return that love and devotion ten-fold, if not more.
While Dog strongly believes in loyalty, commitment, and hierarchy, she also has faith in maintaining the integrity of our personal values and beliefs……
She nurtures the ability to forgive when appropriate, to accept imperfection, and to maintain truth and loyalty towards others – but more importantly, she demands you treat yourself with the same level of respect. Dog will only take abuse for so long, you see, before she turns on her oppressor in order to regain power, protect herself, and retain integrity.
Dog is a powerful teacher that inspires trust, love, and acceptance – qualities that can only be harnessed in others when first established in and for the self.
If Dog has loped into your cards today, you are being reminded of the love you have surrounding you at this time; love that you may be taking for granted or that you believe is no longer there.
Is your loyalty to another a bit one-sided or no longer nurturing your needs? Are you sacrificing your true feelings for fear of being rejected? Is the loyalty in your relationship out of balance?
Dog Dreaming reminds us to maintain the loyalty we have to ourselves as our prime objective, for without it we cannot expect loyalty or unconditional love to be returned to us in any form.”

Empress, and her significant-other, have left all of their canines in my care for the weekend. When the Deputy is home, much more movement happens. When it’s just me and the dogs, couch-riding is our activity of choice.
