Happy April Fool’s Day!
Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit
According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Brown and the Incense is Lavender.
Although April Fool’s Days has a rep for being the day to pull pranks, keep in mind it is also the day to honor the Trickster. The Trickster appears in every religion except the Judeo/Christian ones where he became the Evil One or Satan. However, the snake in the garden of Eden is portrayed as tricking Eve into biting the apple in a quest for knowledge. Somehow, I’ve never been able to see the quest for knowledge as a bad thing. The Trickster delivers his knowledge via playing tricks on you, so maybe, he sneaked in there without them knowing….that is how he works. He is represented by a variety of animals among them: the fox, squirrel, owl and crow.
Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Eight of Wands: velocity. You know you need to be somewhere today. Use this time to organize and establish projects. The Universe is in your favor. Find others of like mind. Use your intuition to choose your associates.

Astrologically, the Moon enters Cancer at 12:30 PM EDT. It is a psychic morning and an excellent time to get a phone or on-line reading. By afternoon you are tempted to jump into the fray and defend others but change is not in the cards so you are wasting your time. Social events are a minefield this evening when people say things they mean and should have kept their mouths shut.
Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say today is a day of creative expression. Do something artistic.
Today’s Cat Comfort card is Up On the Catwalk. “You’re the center of attention. Sturt your stuff.”

Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Ekstatis. This Singer is the power and energy that flows through and fills Unity, the Singer that connects all things. So, when you reach out to manifest this energy of rapture, joy, ecstasy or just motivation flows through you to be directed toward your end. Ekstatis is undifferentiated energy. You must shape it to manifest in this plane.
Today’s Lo Shu Number is 1 and the element is fire. The Horse finds conflict today but the Rabbit (me!) is having an easy day. See, it is perfect for me to do that job spell for you!
Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I will not remain in this state. The healing forces of the Universe are now at work for my highest good. I open my heart to Divine Love, I follow my intuition and great successes now occur in my life naturally and easily.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought 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
Goddess, did we have a rain. George had to wade out and turn the van around for me to get to the shop! We are flooded. Guess I don’t have to water the plants though a few are asking for a bail out.
Ever wonder how cats get up trees and can’t get down. Last night Napoleon got the “evils”. Next thing I know, he was running up the cat log, standing on his hind feet ready to leap when he discovered there was no place to go. You should have seen the look on his face. If ever a cat could have said, “Oh, S**t!” that would have been it! He just stood there on his hind legs at the top of the cat log, trying to figure out what to do next. That’s how they wind up at the top of tree.
I have coined a new phrase. You know when a battery is at the end of its life and all it does is faintly light the flashlight? Well, I am now calling that state - Zombie Batteries. They aren’t dead but they really can’t do much. Have you noticed how batteries come in a four pack and everything seems to just need three. So you have to buy at least three packs before you use up the extra batteries by which time you have lost them and get to start over again. I think it is an evil plot.
