According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is White and the incense is Geranium.
Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Four of Swords: recuperation. This is a time of healing and rest. You really need a “time out” for healing. A vacation or play time is ideal. So, don’t rush right into things, take your time and observe first.

Astrologically, we have energy, energy, energy and it is all pouring into the emotional arena. We will mourn the loss of the old, but hopefully we will have learned from it and now we move on.
Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say this is a day when dreams can come true. Make certain they are the right ones.

Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Luame. She is the head of the clan of Laume. Their job is to give you a little nudge when you are stuck in a rut to stop focusing on yourself and get out there and help people. A little unconditional helping will clear your mind and put you back on track.
Today’s Lo Shu Number is 2 and the element is Earth. The Dog finds conflict today but the Sheep and Monkey are having a great day.
Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I acknowledge the light within every human being. I love, respect and accept each person as the manifestation of the Divine Will on earth. In so doing, I allow those around me to manifest the best of their being. Together we bring healing, beauty and freedom into our world for the highest good of all.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one though at a time.
These messages are helping so many people that I am setting each day’s card up in a psionics generator so you can tap into the energy during the day. Just think of a rainbow and the energy will come to you.
COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
The cats have worn themselves out with the current state of the weather. It…oh heck…after last night’s deluge….NO WAY I’M SAYING THAT! My chives have bloomed. I have never seen a Chive flower so this is a big deal for me.
Who is to blame for the current state of the union? I had the unmitigated gall to suggest it was the Republicans. Oh dear goddess, I may have hurt a Republican’s feelings. Gee whiz golly…for the last 8 years we Democrats have been called socialists, communists, traitors, pacifists, idiots and anything else you can think of by the ruling party. And who was the ruling party? When George Bush took over the presidency, the 106th Senate and House (1999 - 2001) were ruled by a Republican Majority 55 to 45 and 223 to 211 respectively. The 107th Congress, 2001-2003 saw another Republican majority in the House of 221 to 212 while the Senate was split 50/50. The 108th Congress, 2003 - 2005, was also ruled by a Republican Majority of 51/48 in the Senate and 229 to 204 in the House. The 109th Congress (2005 - 2006) was also ruled by a Republican Majority of 55 to 44 and 231 to 202. The 110th Congress (2007 - 2008) saw the balance slightly tip with 49/49 being the ratio in Congress with 2 Independents expected to vote Democratic. There were 237 Democrats and to 203 Republicans. However, though the Republicans continuously voted as a block, the Democrats did not and crossed party lines to give the Bush Administration the go ahead in almost every vote. During this period, state and local judiciaries were packed with Republican Judges most of which will remain in power until they die or get impeached. Now, who has been running the country for 8 years? If you can’t figure it out, I can’t help you. Heck, my cat can figure this one out. George Bush took over with a balanced budget and a surplus, he left us so far in debt I can’t even wrap my mind around it and the Republicans scream we are the spend and borrow party. Am I hurting any Republican feelings yet? Heck, I’d like to slap you up side the head. How dare you suggest my party, who has been in power 40 days is responsible for this mess and another 4 years of yours would have straightened it out! You put us here. Any more questions? Good! This is the result of 8 years of fiscal irresponsibility when the rich got richer and the poor didn’t notice until someone foreclosed on them. Now the rich are still rich and the rest of us bear the burden.
How much responsibility goes to the banks? We needed to borrow about 15,000.00 to put a new roof on the house on a 10 - 15 year loan. It wasn’t a I’d like a new roof, it was a new roof or order buckets by the dozen. The lowest amount any bank or mortgage company was interested in loaning us was 100,000.00. They drove us nuts! I finally asked one loan officer if it really made sense to loan someone that amount of money on 30 year mortgage when they would be 90 years old before the loan was paid. Blank Look! I finally had to threaten to change my phone number if they didn’t leave me alone. They were calling 2 and 3 times a day. I asked to see the loan papers, just FAX them to me. Nooooo, I would see them when we came down to sign them. Sure…without a lawyer I’m going to sign a multi page document and put myself in debt for a hundred grand. My mother didn’t raise stupid children. So we got taken for all our 401K by a crook the local government gave licenses and glowing reports to because no one checked anything and we are up on the roof nailing shingles on ourselves and trying to budget them out of our monthly income. Bitter - Hell yes. Any more questions? Oh and what kind of help did we get from our local Republican board? They tired to repossess our paid for house on zoning violations after they issued the licenses to this crook. Don’t you just love the blame victim mentality of the last 8 years? Oh, I forgot, the Republicans are the victims.....sniff.
Remember the Republican Mantra: Deregulate business and it will take care of the American Worker! To quote Dr. Phil: How’s that working out for you? Remember Reagan’s Trickle Down Economics? Do you feel like something has trickled on you? Okay, I was raised Old School. When I was in the Master Program in psychology, my mentor, a brilliant man, told me all about how he raised his kids: dared anyone to impose potty training on them, never raised a hand to them and gave them unconditional love. In the next breath, he told me how he taken most of his paycheck to buy his daughter a new microwave (they were expensive back then) and he knew she was just going to sell it for drug money. To this I replied that pretty much since the day I was born I was trained to take responsibility for my actions or there would be a reaction and I probably wouldn’t like it. I was potty trained by the time I could walk, love was not unconditional and I got smacked often for legitimate transgressions. Here I am in your office, an honors student, no student loans, working my rear off to graduate and make a better life for myself. And now that I think about it, I think Dr. Phil stole my catch phrase as I asked him how his methods were working out for him. He looked blank and I reiterated. You’ve got two drug addicted kids mooching off you for drug money with criminal records, living in flops, flunked out of college with huge student loans and you are spending most of your pay check on them. I have a good job, am getting an education I am paying for without a loan, don’t even have a parking ticket and my parents wouldn’t buy me a cup of coffee if I was dying of thirst. I got myself into it, I can get myself out of it and pay the price for my thirst. How’s your method working out for you?
That is how we got into this mess. Half of us were raised to take responsibility and couldn’t even conceive someone would behave the way these Robber Barons did. Check your history books and find out what that title means. The other half can’t see how they could possibly be at fault and anyway, we still love them, don’t we? NOT! I hope with all my heart we are ushering the new era of responsibility in our President is trying for.
And that applies to everyone, including psychics. You can’t just blurt out anything hits your mouth. You have to take into consideration what effect it will have on a person. You need to take a moment and look at the various time lines and see what effect you are going to have. True, some things just refuse to be censored. BUT, if your guides, angels or whatever’s seem to be hurting people more than helping them, it’s time for a little intervention with the spirit world and a quiet inventory of whether these helpful energies are just helping you get more money by causing chaos in people’s lives or actually helping people. Now, you can either be part of the solution or the problem. The Choice is totally yours.
