Bulling On

Daily Draw: Minchiate Etruria ~ Strength

Stubbornness.

I'm reminded by this card how many times I've just bulled on, sure I was on the right track. Instinct isn't everything. Common sense helps.

Short Ears

Daily Draw: Chakra Oracle ~ Impatience

Blue is the throat chakra, communication and the ability to be heard and understood.

I'm reminded by this card of Thursday. We stopped in to visit with my aunt and uncle. We did this a few weeks ago too. My uncle is in fragile health at the moment and his communication to me was "I'm not going anywhere" and "I'm not dying".  Went completely over my head. Because we weren't there because he is ill, but because we are doing things we always wanted to do and couldn't before we both retired. Just because you haven't seen us for forty years...I did hear your feet are two different sizes. Who knew? Not us, we were out of communication range.

Life Itself

Daily Draw: Chakra Oracle ~ Miracle

We can find miracles every day if we look and listen. I've had a few of my own, probably more I didn't notice because I was focused somewhere else.

I'm reminded by this card if murder and mayhem and conflict didn't make more interesting news than miracles we'd probably have a better opinion of life on earth and indeed, life itself.

Jell-O Americana Custard

Daily Draw: Chakra Oracle ~ Trickery

Did you know Jell-o Custard no longer exists? Around 2010 it disappeared from grocer's shelves. Rob is still cross about it and checks the shelves just in case, every time we pass the Jell-o section.

My best trick? Whip around the corner before him and shout "Custard is back!"  He was a classic image of joy coming around the corner with his cart. That I was responsible for crushing that look hurt my green heart chakra and I was so sorry I'd caused it.

"The craftiest trickery are too short and ragged a cloak to cover a bad heart."  Johann Kaspar Lavater 1741-1801

Boatload

Daily Draw: Chakra Oracle ~ Growth

I usually think of growth as learning something new. This green chakra heart wants us to grow by acceptance of what is.

I'm reminded by this card I had a growth spurt when I recognized I loved Rob for what he is rather than in spite of. Focusing that attitude to the next person and the next person and the next person released a boatload of pettiness and time wasting.

Green

Daily Draw: Chakra Oracle ~ Grief

Green. The heart chakra.  This post has been on my mind lately.

I'm not even sure I'm capable of grieving for her while I can still hear the mother who died in the grip of dementia.

Seedrocks

Daily Draw: Chakra Oracle ~ Recovery

As yesterday, another sixth chakra. I know as much about chakras as I do about astrology. Which is to say bupkus. Apparently six is the brow chakra and houses all that is within, our knowledge, instinct, intuition.

This card reminds me on some level I need to open that third eye. Since I haven't by now I suspect I won't. Ever. On the other hand I have four little seedrocks here on my desk that remind me everyone has a burden and many recover.

Where Will It End?

Daily Draw
Astrological Oracle and Chakra Oracle

Planned to use the Astrological Oracle. Drew Mars. All war and crankiness. Wondered about Mr. Trump, astrological-wise. Not Mars but still all war and crankiness.
Pulled a card from the Chakra Deck. Wondered why it looked like the 8 of Cups. Scanned it, picked it up, that was the back idjot. Turned the card over to be met by Despondence.

I'm reminded by these cards I am sick at heart the Affordable Care Act is being torn apart over politics. Which specifies equal cost for everyone regardless of preexisting conditions. I'd be dead now if it weren't for affordable insurance.

This is not my usual mode of expression, and I'll probably come back and delete the words later, but I am despondent, I feel like walking away; a pox on infantile politicians.

Life Hours

Daily Draw: Ancient Feminine Wisdom ~ Circe

Wish in one hand, spit in the other, see which one fills up first.

Circe alerts us of the very real potential of fantasy and dream worlds, while the living world is passing us by. It has been years and years (70s?) since I've done it, but a clear signal is preferring to sleep in until ten or eleven AM and back sleeping by five or six PM. I wish I had those life hours back. But, wish in one hand...
