Buckle Up

NEW MOON

This month's New Moon occurs auspiciously just as the Moon finishes it's eclipse of the Sun on Monday.  What a wave of powerful energies that will be flowing over us.  I can already feel feel the shift around me.  Renew! If there was a time to begin something new, that time is now.
To add to all this cosmic energy Mercury went Retrograde last Saturday August 12 for three weeks, which is always a good time to re-new, re-energize, re-start, re-cognize, and re-view.  Oh-oh, Pluto is also retrograde until mid September or so.  I think projects or just about anything started with this New Moon on Monday is really going to pack a punch and re-veal itself by the New Moon next Month.
Hang On!

Happy Little Forest

This forest depiction reminds me of some of those paintings that Bob Ross did in the JOY OF PAINTING on PBS.  I would watch him from time to time and enjoyed him as much as his paintings.  I love the ease and joy he brought to his audiences as he painted his 'happy little trees' and 'happy little clouds'.  I would also get a little peeved with his mastery of bringing such wonderful images to paper when I can barely draw a stick person.  Well we each have things we are good at. 
I also loved his saying "no mistakes, just happy accidents" when he painted.   Now that is good advice for just about a lot of things in Life.

Stillness

Still waters run deep.  Is that old adage true?  Though the Lake looks quiet and serene, most likely there is all kinds of activity below the surface.  The air is so close and thick with humidity that even the crickets have become silent. It may just be too quiet for me.  As I have gotten older I enjoy the quiet more.  Younger I had to be on the move, keeping things at a fevered pitch, not so much now. 
I think I will take a couple of minutes and step into the picture and have a walk around the lake.  Like Alice stepping through the looking glass, I might discover more than I anticipated.

Harbour Wave

I first looked at this card and thought Yikes, what is going to happen today?  When I looked at the spelling of Tsunami I saw the anagram of  - I am nuts.  Almost spelled exactly backward of tsunami.  I loved to look at words and find other words or a different meaning in the letters arrangement.  Tsunami, a harbour wave. Destructive water.  Can also be an over-whelming moment of emotion, when seemingly I can be nuts.
Today, if something 'sets me off' I will try to let the wave of emotion gently roll on by.

Fog

We have all been here. The accompanying  booklet describes it as being "enmeshed in confusion and uncertainty".
Brain Fog - Clouding of Consciousness.  Sometimes we can just get out in the sunshine and let the fog burn away.  Other times a really good night's sleep will bring better clarity.  A good option is a vacation to blow out the cobwebs.  I experience these moments and sometimes days of technical difficulties and work my way through them.
On a different thought, some Farmers keep count of the number of mornings in August that have fog and say that is how many days of snow they will have in the forthcoming winter.  I have kept track of this for a few years here and there and it has been fairly accurate, until last year.  There was lots of days with fog in August 2016 and we experienced a very mild winter.  Climate warming has everything in disarray.

Sacred Space

I watched a Hay House video yesterday evening.  It was presented by Denise Linn on Space Clearing and Grounding; now the Tree labeled Grounding.  Today I need to spend a bit of time near a tree, maybe pack a lunch and head to the park and enjoy my lunch.  I know the perfect tree to perch beneath. 
Lovely beings trees are.  They do so much for us and and ask nothing in return.  They are there for other beings as well, those bears and the bird, and so many more. 
The longest and largest growing living thing on the planet is supposedly a grove of  Aspen Trees in Colorado.  New sprouts spring out of roots just above ground level and are identical to the tree that they spawn from.  Neat.

Vista

Magnificent.
I wonder if more could hold this view if they would change and the World would be a better, kinder place for all.
This is my World card for today.
My hope springs eternal.

Victimhood

Awe Crud.

Hope this won't be a day of not feeling well or something occurs that I get all, despondent over. 
I was a not so pretty, badly broken, gal when I came through the tornado trauma five years ago.  Only once do remember saying "Why Me?"  Well why not me?  I would not have wished what I went through and I am still going through on another.  Sometimes stuff happens.  One thing I did learn to adjust to, was taking offered assistance when given. 

Does misery really love company?

Proclaim

Talk about your 'ship coming in.'

I have been hearing in my head on different days "it's a sign"
Is this draw of the Ace of Pentacles a sign that today is a good day?  Guess I will have the answer to that in about twelve hours. 
Everybody is out to celebrate this boat that has come to port.  Others in their boats, celebrants at the windows and on the balcony.  I am sure there are those at the docks waiting to off load the goods.  Everybody loves a bit of good news.

Apathy

Give until there is nothing left to give.

This Queen of Cups seems hollowed out.  Her emotional well is depleted and she can barely hold up her cup.  From time to time I get to feeling this way; drained with nothing left to give or offer.  Others do it us and and sometimes we do it to ourselves. 
I best be on guard with my emotional commitments today.

Duplicitous

Deceptive in words or actions.

Duplicitous, a much more interesting word than sneaky, or untrustworthy.  Does the description make the intent any less harmful?
As my timeline continues I noticed that the things that I want or need have changed.  Now in my later days, a bit of comfort and security are high on the list.

Good in school.
Prom queen or academic
Solid job/career
Promotion/Up the ladder
House with picket fence
401K
Mindfulness/Meditation
A good night's sleep.

Not for me

Ill gotten counsel.

I was whining to a couple of friends the other day.  Just a little venting and their advice was based on what they thought was best for me.  I appreciated their concern and I was a bit tempted by their suggestions, then after further consideration I knew it was not good for me. 
As in the typical Two of Swords, I need to sit quietly with myself and figure out my source of discontent and act on it accordingly.

"The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it." -Terry Pratchett
