Innie Selves and Outtie Selves

Weekly Draw: Mythic Astrology ~ Gemini

Twins. Duality. Each mental fork we come to is a reminder there are always two choices. Light or Dark. Good or Bad. Simple or complicated. Cerebral or physical.

I'm reminded by the touching fingers at the top of the archway we can't have one without the other. We will always be one of a kind, yet birthing minime twinners day in and day out.

"Genius and insanity are fraternal twins." ~ Carl Henegan, Darkness Left Undone

Full Frontal Assault

Weekly Draw: Druid Animal Oracle ~ Salmon

We have large koi in our farm pond and they often 'stand on their tail' for a tasty tidbit. Rob is learning fly fishing and he is hoping his beautiful but artificial flies will cause the same reaction. (Not with my koi...)

I'm reminded by this card of my own automatic reaction to various stimuli, some good some bad.
chocolate
tea
sun
rain
pain
music
time of day
rigidity
The list is probably endless as life is a series of reactions or proactive assaults. I'm glad I'm alive to choose.

"Every reaction is an opportunity to cultivate a pearl - a beautiful truth that will illuminate the way forwards". ~ Pollyanna Darling

Apples and Blackberries

Weekly Draw: Green Man Tree Oracle ~ Blackberry

Like ivy vines, a bush that runs rampant over whatever it comes to. It can be cut back, killed with poison spray, or if lucky and you have swine they can root it out. Because it can be eliminated, (if you have 24/7 to do it) it is also a bush that can be appreciated and enjoyed for the fruit it gives. Eaten off the vine, topped up on breakfast cereal, in pies, as juice jams and jellies...
can you see the Green Man in the image?

This is prime blackberry country and the little wild blackberries, the best for pies, are at their peak this week. Next will be the Evergreens, huge and juicy, followed by the Himalayan which are smaller harder and tasty if you are hungry.

I'm reminded by this card of all the things I have need of that 'take a licking and keep on ticking'. Of the natural abundance in nature. To see when I look.

I Get It! I Hope...

July 1, 2013
Today I created a new blog, and for the next few months will be posting there.
A clean page in which I endeavor to undertake the study of the Thoth system as opposed to the Waite system used on the Quirkeries side of the blog. Just for the sheer pleasure of learning something new.

"That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something you've understood all your life, but in a new way." ~ Doris Lessing 1919-
