Domestically Accomplished

             There are times in our lives when the path before us is as clear as Dorothy’s yellow brick road.  And the signs along the way are so bright it’s like they’re lit by neon.

             But then, there’s the rest of our life.  Not as clear, not at bright.  We almost have a floundering feeling when we contemplate it as a whole.

             We have to remember though, it’s never about failure.  This has everything to do with stages of our soul’s journey.  The bigger view of our entire adventure.

             The organic and elemental cycling (as we’ve discussed here before) is merely part of how we learn and evolve.  There’s growth and there’s rest.  We go through phases, like any other bit of the natural world.

             Right now we are encouraged to keep it soft, kind, and protected.  To aim……

closer to home.

             Nothing big or dramatic is called for.  In fact, the Universe would recommend we actually avoid that sort of harshness.

             A smaller, slower, more intimate way will be the most healing for us.  The world won’t go away if we don’t interact with it for a moment.

             On our card altar, there is an echo of this same sentiment.  It talks of “action” so we know this means to consult with our Team and to listen carefully.  To move with intention and tenderness.

             Large  boisterous activities in huge crowds are not the only sort available, being discerning and careful with our choices will be in the best interest of us all.

action and grace

“Antelope  ~  37  ~  Action

‘Run Antelope . . .

Teach me,

of action,

and its pace.

Quickly,

quickly,

so I may run with grace.’

Antelope in your cards indicates a message of higher purpose.  You are being armed with the Bow of Authority, this forces you to act on behalf of self, family, clan, nation, and finally Mother Earth.

Reversed:

Contrary Antelope may be telling you that a decision to start is now necessary.  The main element in procrastination is lack of conviction.

To honor your chosen destiny is to honor your commitment to doing what you ‘proclaim’ you are doing.”

home made mayo

I made mayonnaise.

             There are plenty of recipes on-line, so I’m not linking to any particular one.  Also, I didn’t do it exactly as they described.  (Because, of course I didn’t.)

             When I was in about junior high, my mom used to do this.  Not sure why she stopped, but I remember it being pretty simple.  It is, and clearly, ANYBODY can!
