Forecast and faery Finder for 05-01-09

05-01-09

Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit, my owner and mistress.

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Purple and the incense is Thyme.

Today is Beltaine! I know everyone seems to have had the celebration last weekend, but it is today. Keep in mind the Fae are about on Beltaine weaving love magic and glamours. All may not be as it seems….and don’t forget to leave the cakes and honey out and the flowers for the wee people.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is Death: transformation. This card always brings a great transformation. So when we pair it with the moon phase change and Beltaine, it is time to make some major changes in your life today!

Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, the second quarter of the moon begins at 4:44 PM EDT in Leo. This will be an energetic day until you hit a brick wall in the late afternoon at the Moon phase change. This is good because you need to stop and assess how well things are going that you started under the new moon.

Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say they will be out dancing under stars…so come out and join them!

Today’s Cat Comfort card is Bureaucat. “Get that paperwork done. You’ll feel much better.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for the Maiden. She is the perfect Beltaine Fae. She brings new beginnings and joy to our lives.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 1 and the element is Fire. The Rat finds conflict today but the Rabbit (me) is having a great day. Today is auspicious for haircuts (here I come Hair Cuttery!), medical procedures, writing, gambling, construction and births.

Today’s Message from the Universe is: “The longer I have to wait to obtain the results I want, the more magnificent these results will be. I remain peaceful, detached and confident in God’s intelligence and kind action.” 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

Loki’s cat wisdom of the day: Once you go fresh catnip you will never go back. And thus my fingers were nipped and he followed me around the shop screaming. It is just a little plant. There are just so many leaves I can remove and he swallows them whole! Now they all have the munchies.
Re the Pandemic: In a famous science fiction work there is the following quote: “Magic is nice but steel always works.” In the Flu World there is another: “Clorox always works.” Keep that in mind before you panic after running out of masks and sanitizers. It will eat a sprayer so expect to only get once use out of the sprayer unless you use the Clorox cleaner made for the sprayer. Common sense will keep you safe. Keep your hands away from your face. Get your cart in the parking lot when shopping and wipe the handle before handling. That thing is a germ condo. Cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing even if you don’t have the flu. Why? Because the first thing you do is take a really deep breath and that may infect you! Remember, the bathroom tends to be the most sanitary place in most public location because it is constantly cleaned, unlike everything else in the store! Hand washing requires soap and 2 - 4 minutes to be really clean.
I am afraid finances caused me to miss the spay deadline in Bitwit’s biological clock. So just as I am ready to take her in, she begin serenading me and I have to wait until this episode is over. I am afraid the little thing is not getting any bigger and she shall remain one of the little cats. Unfortunately she seems to have a big pair of amplifiers in there somewhere or a bullhorn.

04-30-09

Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Crimson and the incense is Jasmine.

This is May Eve. The Fae are about.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Ten of Pentacles: affluence. Property and wealth are yours but they may not bring happiness. Remember to be generous with the less fortunate.

Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, Mercury enters Gemini at 6:29 PM EDT where he is very, very happy. You, on the other hand, may be dizzy from all the talk. The Moon enters Leo at 8:56 PM EDT, so get out the stage and eliminate all pronouns except me, myself and I. It is not a good morning for financial affairs. By afternoon you have a vague sense of annoyance but nothing you can actually grab and strangle. The later tonight the communications begin, fun happens and all ends well.

Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say it is hard to let go today. Small hurts fester and grow. Let them go!

Today’s Cat Comfort card is Angel Cat. “Know that you are loved and protected.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Ta’Om the Poet. He encourages us to have fun, accept challenges and tackle those projects you have put to the wayside. Needless-to-say, his boundless energy can wear you out. He encourages writers and poets to take up the pen and paper. He also makes us a little more romantic than usual. Enjoy him as tomorrow it will probably be back to business as usual.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 9 and the element is wood. The Boar finds conflict today but the Dragon and Snake are having an easy day. It is NOT an auspicious day for haircuts, medical procedures, writing, gambling, construction or births.

Today’s Message from the Universe is: “The Divine Love of my Higher Self now flows through me in every situation of my life. The more I express this love, the more it returns to me.” 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

Healing is an art and energetic healing takes almost as much training as the regular medical kind. The difference between the two is the medical doctor seldom hurts himself whereas the energetic healer can hurt themselves really bad.
There are two basic laws in the Universe that even science will attest to. Nature abhors a vacuum. Scientists use rooms full of equipment just to create a tiny vacuum and it will try to collapse the container. All things seek equilibrium. Two connected containers of water will eventually reach the same level. Everything works that way.
What this has to do with energetic healing is simple. You should not be giving your energy to someone in healing. There is an abundance of energy in the universe and that individual has all the energy they can contain at this moment. Refer back to the vacuum and equilibrium. What the energetic healer does provide is a healthy pattern and by imposing that pattern over the unhealthy pattern, energy is attracted to the person to form a healthy energetic pattern and health is slowly restored as energy flows into them in the new pattern. Sometimes, energetic voids, creatures, odd growths, etc must be removed prior to healing. The wound where they were living must be cleaned and closed and a healthy pattern placed over it for the healing energies to attach to. Don’t forget to properly dispose of these toxic energy thingies…how’s that for a scientific name? Otherwise, they are going to lay around and attach to the same person or a new person.
I had to settle the Kitwit/Oldenwit war today before I could leave for the shop. The Kitwits decided to take the cat log back after Prescious had claimed it for almost a week. Josephina has claw attached and I had to dislodge each little paw to take it back for him. It was either that or know that Prescious el Clutso was destroying my bedroom as I worked all day. His main philosophy is: I will reach the top of the hill if I have to take the mountain down with me.

Today is Taliesin’s Birthday. He was the legendary Bard of Britain.

FORECASTS:

Today’s Tarot Card is the Ace of Swords: respiration. Where attention goes, so goes energy as the Huna philosophy says. Try focusing your mind instead of letting it wander today. Direct your energy toward personal growth. You can use you energy for good or evil. Which will you choose?

Astrologically, this is a day to tout your achievements even if you have to enlist your family and friends in the media blitz. By evening you will have the ability to transcend the limitations placed in your path by authorities.

Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say so much to do and we are tempted to throw our environmental awareness to the wayside. That will not please the Fae…..

Today’s Cat Comfort card is A Cat Always Lands on Its Feet. “Be ready for anything. Everything will work out.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER

I thought I had Swine Flu last night as I stewed in my own juices, but I discovered I had a bad case of Purrbah the Kitwit. Once again, he had changed the air conditioning vent so it blows up on the ceiling where he happily stretches out on the top of the armoire in all his Cheetah like glory. Those cats are just too darned smart.
Unfortunately I was trying to shut the bathroom door for my shower and could not figure out how Purdy von Sweets was stopping me in the floor. Then I realized I was really giving Napoleon a good pinching on top of the door. George pointed out he now leaps to the top of the door without a sink assist! Now I have to look up and down before shutting a door.
Before you read the bottom excerpt from the Military Religious Freedom organization, I want you to keep in mind what would happen if any Pagan group were to publish something like this against one these Fundamentalists. Yes, they would be filing law suits and trying to have us burned at the stake but for them it is totally Okay. Well folks, I have some news for you. A curse is a curse and it is black magic I don’t care what deity you call upon for it. It will return to you, eventually.

I know some may have thought I was little nuts yesterday. A few hours after I emailed and posted my blogs, this came into my in-box. Notice it asks people to call and have this “prayer” broadcast on radio.

IMPRECATORY PRAYERS AGAINST ANTI-JESUS
BARRY LYNN AND MIKEY WEINSTEIN
Saturday 25 Apr 09 One-Minute Prayer:
Let us pray. Almighty God, today we pray imprecatory prayers from Psalm 109 against the enemies of religious liberty, including Barry Lynn and Mikey Weinstein, who issued press releases this week attacking me personally. God, do not remain silent, for wicked men surround us and tell lies about us. We bless them, but they curse us. Therefore find them guilty, not me. Let their days be few, and replace them with Godly people. Plunder their fields, and seize their assets. Cut off their descendants, and remember their sins, in Jesus' name. Amen.
**Listen below! And call & ask your local Christian radio station to broadcast this 60-second prayer many times throughout the day on Saturday, 25 Apr 09.

This little ditty is authored by Lt. Gordon J. Klingenschmitt, an evangelical Episcopal Navy chaplain who got himself court-martialed and kicked out of the Navy for disobeying orders and showing up at a political rally in full uniform.
Oddly enough, that sounds more like a curse than a prayer to me, but hey, what does the local Druid know? Ooops, we are the experts in curses. Maybe I know what I am talking about….Any way, it is starting to look like ear plugs may become a necessary investment if you want to take your mind back.

Dodging a bullet or a bomb may not be their only threat in the service of their country.

Forecast and Faery Finder for 04-28-09

04-28-09

Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Grey and the incense is Cedar.
Today is the Roman Festival of Flora. It is a time to call her to bless your flower gardens.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Page of Swords: decomposition. Uncertainty rules. You want to return to past ways. Do not abandon your Soul’s desire by backsliding.

Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, the Moon enters Cancer at 6:38 PM EDT, so it would be a good idea to have your flower garden blessing after that. For the next week, careful planning is needed in social events. Go too fast and the reward you reap will not be pleasant. The early morning hours are great for anything to do with finances and gambling. Emotional outbursts over chance and thoughtless remarks have you scratching your head so watch what you say. You can dispassionately look at old problems and injuries and release them during the noon hour. The influences are very psychic and good for divination. Don’t be surprised if a lunch time flirtation goes no where. Late tonight, home and family is so comfy you just don’t want to go out. It is not a night to do much of anything so pull on your Snuggy and enjoy doing nothing.

Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say miracle healings are possible today.

Today’s Cat Comfort card is Technocat. “Learn a new skill. It will open up many possibilities.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Sylvanius. He is a difficult Fae to understand. First off, why does truth need a mask? He encourages us to try on new things and new personalities so we can truly understand who and what we are. The inside of the mask of truth is a mirror that shows our true self.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 7 and the element is Water. The Rooster finds conflict today but the Dog and Boar have an easy day. This is a bad day for gambling and construction.

Today’s Message from the Universe is: “Peace flows through me and around me. I free my mind of all criticism. I communicate and serve in a peaceful and loving way.” 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

Just about everyone has heard of the Twinkie defense. Then there are the violent movie or video game defenses and most of us snickered. Then along came the market crash of the Bush administration and the bailout, followed by the election of Obama and suddenly he was to blame for 8 years of economic disaster and the original bail outs. Now logic tells you Twinkies and video games don’t get you to commit murder. I mean, has your Twinkie ever whispered in your ear? If it has, please seek immediate help from a psychiatrist. Logic should tell you that the Democrats can’t be responsible for the problems created during a Republican administration. They weren’t in power. Video games don’t tell you anything, they are games. Movies are fantasy.
Do you have any idea all these things are connected? Yes, Twinkies, violent video games and movies and the Republicans all are using the same methods. WHAT??? Has she flipped? No folks, I have never been saner.
Unfortunately, science and technology have caught up with brainwashing and proved it exists. New imaging techniques allow us to finally see the activity in the brain and even better, what are “hard wired” areas. Most of your brain is mutable in its responses but some areas are hard wired. No matter what happens, if a thought hits this area it follows a predictable path. What no one has ever really looked at before now is what creates the path.
Example: Babies cannot filter glass, a screen or anything else out of a view. However, mysteriously at around a few months, they look at something and the screen disappears and the glass is no longer visible in the window. They see through it. It doesn’t ever come back unless they concentrate on seeing it.
It seems that things you are constantly exposed to, move into the background of your brain and form a hard wired area, like a little ditch. When the water (your thoughts) arrive, they are directed through the existing little ditch rather than splattering into new and wondrous areas.
So, when you are constantly exposed to violent video games, movies or some Rap Music, when a situation arrives that should say…stop and think and maybe compromise…these little violence ditches are waiting to take that thought and channel it straight to a violent reaction rather than a wait and think reaction. In other words every time you play, listen or see something on a continuous basis you are creating a permanent path in your brain to react that way. It is no longer a choice. You have physically created the only way you will react.
When you have the Rushes of the radio world playing in the background, you immediately blame people for things they could not have done because the constant repetition of these charges like they are facts and they create a little ditch in your brain that defies logic. You actually will believe this claptrap even though it is as plain as the wall in front of you, it is a lie.
We are designed to behave in a reactionary way in order to survive. Stop for a moment and think about everything it will take for you to stand up, from pushing away from this computer to finally becoming erect. I mean every muscle movement. If you didn’t have this automatic standup circuit you would have been eaten by a saber tooth tiger before you got off the ground. It serves a good purpose. Unfortunately in a world where there is constant exposure, often subliminal, to stimuli like radio and TV, these automatic circuits are forged without your permission but they are every bit as real as a brick wall.
So today lesson is to be aware of your surroundings and of what is beating at your brain. Does your next door neighbor play loud, violent music all day? Did you think that because you can’t hear the lyrics it wasn’t affecting you? Think again. You can hear and understand those lyrics, it just isn’t necessary for you to consciously be aware of them. They are creating those little brain ditches. Now do you know why you are snapping at your significant other and kids a bit more? Can’t escape Rush on the radio and now you friends are looking at your strange and every once in a while you can’t figure out how that came out of your mouth? Brain ditches my friend from constantly being exposed to lies. Do you remember how there was no escape from Hitler’s speeches in Nazi Germany? They were always playing on the radio. Now do you know how a whole country lost its moral compass to the point of slaughtering innocent people over nothing? It is happening right here folks. Buy some ear plugs, it might save some poor immigrant’s life some day. Yes, it could be that bad if we don’t stop this brain polluting cancer of violence and lies right now.
Now, let me clarify this for those of you who are more scientifically inclined and want to know exactly how it works:
Okay....let me explain this.
They get on the radio during commuting hours. Your attention is divided between driving and the radio. You levels of fight or flight hormones are through the roof making you hypervigilent, so all the infobits they are throwing out go directly into your brain and are registered twice as fast and deep as they would be if you were sitting listening to the radio, nice and relaxed and rational. A week or two later, your physical brain is changed and you begin to think like them. The bits go into memory and treated as FACTs. Not only that but because of the hypervigilence, whenever anything contradicts these facts, you react violently, physically recalling the fight or flight response which is now linked to these infobits.
It's not philosophy. It is plain old brain washing science.
Ever see the Muslim terrorist rocking back and forth and praying constantly? That's what this is without Mecca and the eastern sun. That is why they don't break under torture. Their brains are forever changed, circuits for logic and even self preservation have been rewritten. This stuff has the ability to produce human robots. It is so far beyond scary; it is into deer in headlights land.
Turn your radios off and put on a nice relaxing CD. You will have less accidents. You will arrive home more relaxed and refreshed and maybe, just maybe you will actually be thinking again.
I wondered for years, and I know all about brainwashing...it was my speciality in experimental psychology...I wondered why they were taking what was called the trash spots. These are the spots when people are not capable of writing down a phone number so you can't sell advertising. People are half listening to the radio during commutes and before bed or have it running during the overnight. It never connected in my mind that these are the times you can program people most effectively (and no one knew the programming was physical) and that is why the rightwing was buying up every radio station in the country and and putting their best people on during trash spots. I mean it’s radio...that's archaic...right????
Does it really work? About 20 years ago I had to pass a test for a license and I didn’t have a prayer in any religion of doing it. I did not have the training or the knowledge to pass it, just the practical experience doing the job. My employer needed someone with this license yesterday and he bought me a tape set designed as a study guide for the test. It arrived the day I was to leave for the test. I rented a car and during the 8 hour drive to the test site, I played those tapes continuously. I played them all night and the next evening I took the written test having passed the practical exam. When I got the test in front of me, I was like the energizer bunny after someone put steroids in his espresso. I finished the test, looked around and everyone was still trying to read to the end of theirs. I scored higher than medical doctors. So I did it a second time and they still hadn’t finished. I had one of the highest scores and I didn’t even have my AA and I had never seen 80% of the material prior to getting the car the day before. Then I crashed. When I returned to my nice and easy job, every time I had to do something involving the electronics end of the job which was plug a into b, I would start sweating, shaking and having a panic reaction. It took me almost 6 months to negate that reaction and I am a biofeedback therapist. Yes, it works and yes, it can be permanent.

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Ivory and the incense is Neroli.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Seven of Cups: delusion. That nice fa├žade hides something ugly today. If you aren’t grounded you are going to fall flat on your face today. Wrong directions and wrong people surround you. Trust in your own abilities!

The Faeries say this is a day of new opportunities.

Today’s Cat Comfort card is Sun Cat. “Feel your own sunshine radiating within.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Luathas the Wild. Fire or creative force, you make the decision. You will get both with him. When things are exciting, he shows up and fans the flames. There is no way to stop him, so beware. Things can get out of control when he shows up! Don’t tell anyone but I think he doubles as Kudzu in the garden.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 6 and the element is Water. The Monkey finds conflict today but the Rooster is having a great day. It is an auspicious day for births but not for building.

Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I follow my intuition. I don’t have to struggle, not even in my mind, to improve this situation and to achieve my goals. I listen to the guidance of my Higher Self and the good I desire is near and within reach.” 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

Somehow, thinking in terms of surviving events is something that comes with age. I suffered from vertigo yesterday which means at one point I tripped over the flat carpet. I didn’t get to really see or talk to anyone much unless they found me. I am sure everyone had a great time at Beltaine.
As for me, I awoke a half hour late because my alarm chose yesterday to not go off. It didn’t have any trouble waking me up at 7 today! So I rushed to feed the cats and Napoleon opened the bedroom door and let all the Kitwits in. Needless-to-say, by the time I got home the bedroom was totaled. Leaving them on Saturday morning when they get their lazy scratches in bed is a sin punishable by surfing. Now let me explain surfing. They don’t knock things down. They ride them to the floor like a surf board. That makes absolutely certain they don’t do something like remain suspended in midair for me to find.
My back is killing me and I ache all over but it was fun. I think I’ll wait at least a month to do anything else. Products and pictures will go up on the web tomorrow. I am just too tired today. Oh, HINT: the coffin nails are in!!!! Now, I have to admit, I spent 2/3 of my reading money at Olde Time Pottery but I only get to go there twice a year and they had gnomes, tree people, mushroom people and salamanders….all of which are now decorating the Faery garden. There is even a gazing ball! I can only resist so much temptation…thank the Goddess I do not live near that place! I’d be bankrupt.

Forecast and Faery Finder for 04/25-26/09

04-25 and 26-09

Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, Saturday’s color is Blue and the incense is Sandalwood. Sunday’s color is Amber and the incense is Hyacinth.

Saturday is the Roman Festival of Robigus. Brace yourself. He is the god of Mildew. On this day, they celebrated his protection of the crops from Mildew. He should be very popular down here in Humidityland, I mean Florida.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
This weekend’s Tarot Card is the Devil: subjugation. You have been taken in. Someone is hiding something from you. Or…are you the liar? Keeping the truth from people is a way to manipulate them and subjugate them to your will and that’s just not nice. If you slander people to make yourself look better, that’s not nice either. Make amends before you wind up on the chopping block.

Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, Saturday will bring harsh words if you trudge up old issues. The afternoon allows you to transcend limitations. Psychic readings about money and property may not bring welcome news but they are accurate. Sunday, the Moon enters Gemini at 5:02 PM EDT. For the next week or so, it appears that authorities are standing in the way of changes and demanding you pay homage the gods of the past era and mistakes. In the early morning and emotional declaration first has you happy and then pushes all the old buttons. No two situations are the same and no two people are the same. Remember that. Use logic instead of intuition. By lunchtime everyone is talking at once. This is good evening for socializing but not for sympathy. Irritation at limitations has you pushing harder and it provides a breakthrough tonight.

Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say this may be time to look for a new location to eliminate some of the problems you are having in the current one.

Today’s Cat Comfort card is Cat Call. “Don’t be so critical. See the positive in yourself and others.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
This weekend’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for sweet little Honesty and his plants came up in the pot! Honesty is often seen in his plant form which is Moneywort, Luneria or Honesty. He loves us warts and all but he wants us to be honest with ourselves as to what our warts are.

Saturday’s Lo Shu Number is 4 and the element is Metal. The Horse finds Conflict. It is not an auspicious day for much of anything. Sunday’s Lo Shu number is 5 and the element is Metal. The Sheep finds conflict but the Ox and Tiger are having a great day. This is not a good day for communicating, but it is auspicious for haircuts, medical procedures, gambling and births.

This weekend’s Message from the Universe is: “Everything that does not contribute to my highest good now vanishes from my life. I let it go. The will of God expresses itself clearly and strongly through the qualities He gave me.
The path of my life is radiant and free.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at 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.

I know I will be too tired to write by the time I get home from vending at the Beltaine celebration tomorrow.
I am getting the evil eye from Ra because they get no cans until they finish their breakfast. It’s a busy day with packing, organizing and taking care of business. Hopefully there will be pictures on my face book page: Janice Scott-Reeder of our weekend adventure in vending. Talk to you on Sunday.

Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Ffaff the Ffooter. Ever try to pick up both feet at the same time when you weren’t jumping. The effect is painful and leaves Ffaff totally puzzled. He has no idea why you can’t levitate like he can. He is the foot inspector. So, unless you want to meet the floor up close and personal, have those feet ready for inspection. He isn’t too good about washing his little hands, so if the last person had fungus….In short, fix up your feet and ground yourself. Ffaff is all about grounding and honoring Mother Earth.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 3 and the element is Earth. The Snake finds conflict today but the Rat finds ease. It is not an auspicious day for most anything.

Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I let go of all criticism. I open my heart to tolerance, sympathy, patience, humility and tenderness.” 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

There are times when I have to wonder how addled or stupid I have to be to actually think I can eat a salmon salad wrap for lunch in a shop full of cats. Bitwit attacked from the top, over the chair and onto my head. Ra got me from the side, into my lap. Isis came up from under, head snaking into my lap. I can barely get my work done as a cat head keeps landing my hand with every moment. How on earth did I think I would actually eat salmon. Yes, a good deal of it ended up in their food bowl and the other half is secure in the plastic dish it came in. And to think, I actually drove home to get this. DUMB, DUMB, DUMBER…..Now if I go outside, Blueman and Howler are waiting…Go home and the Kitwits await me. I’m giving them stupid wrap!
The New Moon is tonight in Taurus making is a perfect time to begin projects having to do with wealth, property, food and abundance. Your will power is strong and so is everyone else’s stubbornness! You will not get concession and the phrase: Never a borrower nor a lender be, was written under this moon.
I finally got one of my Russian mulberries before the birds got it. Oh….Nirvana!
As I was sitting listening to my Native American CD, I noticed that I would get a mournful yowl from Solstice every once in a while. Suddenly I realized he is singing with the CD. I’ve know dogs to do that, but cats??? He sure has good pitch.
We buried Mr. BoBo last night in a nice ceremony. I donated my blouse as a shroud, but didn’t know George requires incense at the ceremony. I had bought a catnip plant instead. Curiously enough, nothing has touched the catnip plant. I ordered the marker today for the grave.
I left the shop an hour late yesterday and ran into a raccoon. That’s into, not over. He looked at me with the “what are you doing here look?” so apparently even the raccoon knows my schedule. He was cleaning up the cat plates.
Remember when I told you the birds really hate the bird food I bought at Lowes. Well, I found the blackbirds on the Finch feeder eating Finch food. They really hate that food to go over and eat those tiny Finch seeds.
Ah well, time to wrap this forecast up and start on the packing for CUUPS on Friday. Organization is the key to me having a booth set up. I am bringing a lot of statuary that has to be unpacked and repacked, hopefully in someone’s shopping bag. If my statue of Freya arrives tomorrow as planned, I shall bring it and offer it for sale, but when and if it returns to the shop, it will be migrating toward my private altar…just a warning. Check my face book page under Janice Scott-Reeder and The Cosmic Salamander for more information on the event. See you there….there will be pictures if I can remember to bring the camera this time!

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER

Tomorrow I start getting ready for CUUPS at Beltaine. Yes, finally, I get to go out and explore the world a little. Hey, I spend most of my time between home and shop. Anything provides a little excitement.
It is with great sadness I report the passing of Mr. BoBo. He had a good quantity of catnip last night, enjoyed the munchies and this afternoon before I left for the shop, he came in and stretched out in the shower like he always does, closed his eyes and took a deep breath and passed on to beyond the veil. He joins his brother, Boopie, on the other side and will be buried beside him tonight. I have a catnip plant to adorn their grave as both of them were real nippers. Mr. BoBo was simply a very old cat and it was his time. He was one of the first kittens to be born at the shop. He started life named Bull because of the bull’s eye on his sides. However, it became apparent that name caused him to butt heads with you and since headaches were resulting, we renamed him Mr. Bobo. Curiously enough, when the lion Bobo up in Palm Beach was in danger of being put down, Mr. BoBo became deathly ill and we thought we were going to lose him. When the lion was given a stay of execution, Mr. BoBo recovered. He has always been a happy, friendly cat, devoted to his brother. He took his loss rather hard. I raised both of them from about three weeks, bottle fed them and they slept with me most nights until the cold in my room started aggravating their joints. Mr. BoBo is already missed by me and all the cats for whom he was sort of the wise old man showing them the ropes of getting food out of me.
My tax dollars are at work across the street today. I can barely get Vanwitch in the parking lot. There is a commercial well drilling company, pumping out the fire well and cleaning it. It is a boondoggle. Why you ask, as it would seem this was a necessary maintenance for our fire safety? Well, it seems none of the fire departments that service the north end of Broward County have a pump truck. Thus, they can not attach to the well and pump water out of it making the well useless in case of a fire. My guess is that is about two grand flushed down the toilet today. Maybe we can paint the well housing and use it as a decoration. They will clean around 5 more in the neighborhood this week for no purpose what-so-ever except to waste your tax dollars. This why you need to get your unemployed rear down to some government meetings and open your mouth. Who knows, when they find out you know what you are talking about you might get a job, elected or paid off to shut up. It’s air conditioned. The seats are comfortable and the entertainment is free…Might as well see your tax dollars being spent. As it is, there is no way to break this contract with the private firm they awarded it to so they might as well clean out useless wells. Maybe we can hook the sprinklers to them…..

Forecast and Faery Finder for 04-22-09

04-22-09

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 Marjoram.

Today is Earth Day!

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Six of Wands: triumph. Be totally clear and truthful about your motives and goals. Inner conflicts will vanish and you will then have happiness and victory. Use all experiences, even the negative ones, as a learning experience.

Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, Mars enters Aries at 9:44 AM EDT. The Moon enters Aries at 10:09 AM EDT. It is an explosive morning. Expect a tremendous number of arguments over the next couple of days. You may be wishing for a return to chivalry and the old ways this morning but what you are more likely to get is war. Energies are way too high and people are not looking at the end result, just the beginning. You really have to think things through and not react to remain safe. Or, you will be really happy with the world of hurting and paperwork you bring down upon your head. Don’t try to change things in the afternoon. In fact, if you can hide from your boss, all the better. Make certain you double check all budget items for the next couple of days and are sure you know the rules.

Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say trying to follow your dreams hit’s a brick wall today. So keep your head down and finish what you start.

Today’s Cat Comfort card is Cat Suit. “Be daring. Be wild. Be Bold.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for the Undressing of the Salad. Impossible you say. Obviously you have newer spilled the pepper in a salad or you would know it is possible. What this group of Fae really mean is you have too many balls in the air at once. You are struggling to keep everything afloat. You have to drop a few balls to bring in new ones. Keep that in mind.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 1 and the element is Fire. The Rabbit, me, finds conflict today. Today is an auspicious day for medical procedures, writing, gambling, and births but not for hair cuts.

Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I let go. I free myself from any attachment, illusion and restlessness of everyday life. I look at people and things through my Soul’s eyes in a calm, detached and loving way. A new and powerful energy emerges within me. I am intuitively guided toward the appropriate action and I easily succeed in everything I do.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at a time.

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER

What a day yesterday was. I am giving up on the day off principle. First, it rained so hard Vanwitch was in a lake. I have to get in the passenger side and crawl across to stay dry. However before that happened and I am trying to get out the door, Purrbah is in the kitchen and gets whacked in the head with a box of corn muffin mix. Napoleon is on top of the fridge trying to get Turtle. So I had lock turtle in the bathroom because Napoleon is the Pitbull of cats. A month later and he will still focused on the same thing. There is no stopping. I had to buy aquarium on the way home to fix the aquarium for Turtle and then I have to find something to put on top of it that Napoleon can’t get through.
Then I thought I would have a peaceful day at the shop but I had a customer waiting for me. Now, I do not know what happened by I got the garbage can off the street where it was laying and put the lid on it. Next thing I knew the lid flew straight up! I didn’t see anything exit the garbage can but it was a little unsettling. Then after taking care of the customer I had to get to the Post Office because the Vanwitch was full of shipments to be dropped off. For some reason, I wound up in Wartmart. Oh, I was buying some finch food for the wild finches at the shop. A detour took me to the discount counter and I have enough socks for the rest of the year for under ten dollars. Then I made the mistake of wandering into garden department and came out with a Haberno Pepper which is what they make Tabasco sauce from and as usual, a few flowers.
When I got back, I happened to notice the monitor and wondered how my car on the other side of the Vanwitch. Another visitor and finally I got the forecast finished, the pepper planted and George arrived. Well, I knew I needed the S-hooks to hang the finch feeder so we were off to Lowes. Do not ever go to Lowes on Monday! That is the day they discount all the flowers. I came out with a wagon full of plants, all discounted to a dollar or five. I bought more of the little white flowers I seem to grow so well, though I have no idea what it is, some petunias, a coleus, a calla -I’ve always wanted to try one - a strange Brazilian plant and a catnip plant. Then it took two pet shops to find aquarium sealer and Turtle’s favorite food. Anything else, and she turns her nose up at it. When we got back to the shop, Paganwit was still around. We haven’t seen him in over a month and hungry, of course. If I am lucky, the catnip plant will still be in one piece when I get back tomorrow. Oh, it was the Luneria or Money Plant that came up. By the time I went out a second time, another one had popped up and the seed was still attached. I have Honesty plants for Honesty!!!
Home and dinner were next and then the sneezing started. I have been sneezing all night and hope I get some sleep. Friday, my coffin nails, dragon scrying bowl and large statue of Freya should arrive.
Some days you get an order that defies all packing strategies. Today it was a book: Secrets of Druids. It was too long for every padded envelop I had and I finally managed to tape it into one. Let me give you guys a little hint about “expedited shipping”. No one has ever told us merchants what it means and they don’t give us enough money to ship the book anyway but Media so you are wasting your money. Just stick to the standard shipping.
Almost all the Lunaria have come up. Only one seed has failed to germinate or it has shifted in the pot. All the cats are here. The catnip plant survived the night and all is well in Salamander land. I spent most of the night playing hide the Turtle with Napoleon until I finally hid her in my bathroom. I found Napoleon this morning nearly unconscious on the chair in the kitchen. He must have spent the entire night trying to find her. Don’t worry he will recover to plague her again tonight.

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Black and the incense is Geranium.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Arch Priestess: dissolution. New ideas allow you to start over today. Observe the past without regret. Old loves, hates, and ways of motivation fall to the wayside. Delve into your memories and see what the wizard is doing behind the curtain.

Astrologically, what we want to do and what we must do tears us apart today. Our head and hearts are in opposition to each other. Come evening, it is a good time to call someone and tell them how you feel. For the rest of the week, romance, nostalgia and seeing things through rose colored glasses is the norm. It will be an emotional overnight period. Planting and fishing are favored today.

The Faeries say you are ready for a vacation even if it is only a mental one.


Today’s Cat Comfort card is Catnip. “You could do with a pick-me-up. Try something you really like today.”

Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Mikle a Muckle. He is a grid of a good family and grigs are a merry lot. He wants you to be happy, to express your inner child. Mikle wants you to focus on the present moment as it is the only moment you really have the one in which your power is rooted. Then, have fun!

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 9 and the element is Fire. The Tiger finds conflict but the Dragon and Snake have ease. This is not an auspicious day for anything.

Today’s Message from the Universe is: “The Universal law of justice and freedom rules in everyone, for everyone and through everyone. Being in harmony with the will of my Soul, neither a person now a situation can prevent me from attaining my highest good. I trust God’s infinite wisdom.

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER

I think my first Lunaria came up. It’s either that or a weed. It really rained today.
Let me take you back in time to when I was young, a young woman even. I know some of you who are younger than me are going to think this is just another science fiction story or at least really good fantasy I am writing, but it was how things were when this was a great country and everyone in the world wanted to come here and a part of the American experience and life.
When you got be 16, pretty much the legal age to work with parental permission, you found yourself a job after school so you could save up enough money usually to go to the prom and maybe get that car you would be learning how to work on because you couldn’t afford a mechanic. It was normally a job at the fast food restaurant or the grocery store where you bagged groceries and restocked shelves. If you were lucky, like me, to be blessed with both looks and typing skills, you got to be a cashier and interact with the customers. Your parents would shop at the A and P even though they liked the Quick Check better because their daughter was working there and even tolerate the fast food special on Sunday instead of a homemade brunch because their son was manning a mop in the Royal Castle. The manager would come out and say hello to your parents and give them a report on your work ethic. You learned to be on time, get your job done and mange your money. You even learned the government was going to take part of your paycheck. You were a semi-adult with a brand new status in school. Other kids envied you and worked even harder because you worked and kept up with your studies and had MONEY. If you fell behind at school, your job was gone. That was the deal. You knew there were no exception. Most of the time you had to present your report card to your parents and your manager! You could actually fail in school and surprise: it didn’t scar you for life. You worked harder. And believe it or not, teachers were required to tell your parents you were failing so they could make certain you never left the house until your grades improved.
Then if you got good grades, you would get into college and you would qualify for a scholarship if your parents couldn‘t pay for it. Sometimes you only got a partial scholarship but that didn‘t mean you kicked back and enjoy the college experience. No, that wasn‘t free money. In my case you worked your tail off in a library or enhancing science drawings for a dollar an hour to pay back the scholarship. Scholarships were based on need and grades, not being a green spotted leaf hopper to meet a quota.
If you didn’t get into college, you pretty much knew you would be in a blue collar job for the rest of your life and that wasn’t a bad thing. You knew there was a job and after you saved for a few years or went into the military to get one of those GI loans, you would have enough money for a down payment on a house. You got a thirty year mortgage, with a fixed interest rate and you knew exactly what your payments were because they were laid out in the little book and you made a budget because you knew exactly how much you were going to bring home every week. As the payments stayed the same and as the salary went up, you could afford better things. So you fixed the house up and bought a better car and took vacations. You knew your employer was saving money for your retirement out of your paycheck and you knew how much you would get back from the government for all those years of paying taxes. You knew your house would be paid for and you were going to have a nice retirement at 65, enjoy the grandkids, take a few trips and finally have enough time to talk to your partner and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
I know at this point a lot of authors are going to say and then it all went wrong and they are going to point to two convenient targets: the down turn of religion and women’s lib. They are more or less afraid to mention the latter since women make up at least half the work force and they want to keep their readers. If we just beat those kiddies a little more in grade school, it will all go back to what it was, print “in god we trust on money” and require the pledge of allegiance to be said. Oh and make women be stay at home moms and pop out every fetus they accidentally get saddled with….I am not trying to sell you a membership in the local church, temple or whatever. I have nothing to sell you so what I see may be a little different.
There’s a slight problem with all of those reasons. The pledge was a new thing when I started school and that was back in the DAY. So it really had no influence over the previous generation that produced me. Women actually worked at menial jobs back then when the kids went back to school, but they were home by three when you got out of school just to make certain you did your homework and there was no microwave or fast food. There were TV dinners but - gasp - they took 45 minutes in the oven to cook. Someone had to get your food ready for dinner. Oh, school started at 8 every morning and ended at 3, five days a week with holidays off and you knew exactly when your next school year started so your parents could plan that summer vacation from the beginning of the school year or sometimes two years in advance.
Have you figured out what went wrong? Two simple elements: trust and consistency disappeared. You trusted your employer to save for your retirement, to give you a job if your worked your rear off and there would be advancement even if you just a middle ability worker. Heck, even after college most kids returned to the place they had that summer job as a manager and looked forward to someday running the place or maybe owning it if they saved enough to buy it. The bank wasn’t going to raise your house payment every six months because of skyrocketing property taxes or insurance. Your interest rate was never going to change because when you borrowed that money you agreed to pay it back at 3% interest and that bank made its budget out based on getting that 3% not 5, 8 or 32%. It lived within its means and you learned to live within yours. Otherwise, everyone looking at you with pity because you were obviously defective, tried to help you out and sometime you had to start over. There was no credit score. You were either reliable or not. You weren’t penalized for getting sick, just for bad judgment and not learning from your mistakes. The insurance company didn’t automatically raise your car insurance rates when Johnny turned 16 based solely on the fact he was 16, they waited until you said he was going to get the car keys after he got a license. They knew your parents were responsible for your actions and would pay for them and so did your parents. The didn’t want to lose what they had spent twenty years working for and you weren’t going to lose it for them because you had learned responsibility watching them, your manager at the A and P and the people around you. You knew with absolute certainty that if you worker, planned and saved you would have a good life and so would your children.
The problems we have today did not start at the bottom, with every Tom, Dick and Harry suddenly deciding to screw off and get something for nothing. They started at the top when you could no longer trust the company you worked for to have a job for you. You couldn’t trust the government not to tax you out of your home when you turned 65 or the year after you buy it. You couldn’t trust your insurance company to pay your claims but you certainly could trust them to be in bed with your government and bank and make it mandatory for you to have insurance. You certainly couldn’t trust your bank because their new goal was to take your house and sell it after they had made the loan price over and over again in interest and you were in danger of -gasp - actually paying your loan off and owning the piece of property. It didn’t start with religion going to the wayside. Oh yes, it went to the wayside but wasn’t that when you stopped trusting your church to help you as they were way more interested in a bigger building with more stained glass, thousands of bodies and plate full of donations. It wasn’t when women demanded equal rights because they had figured out that the government, banks, insurance companies and church certainly weren’t going to help them if anything happened to the bread winner. No, they were going to swoop in like vultures and pick their financial bones. This didn’t start with me and you, this started with the people, the good Christian people, we elected to look out for our best interests and instead sat around figuring how to get richer at our expense and how to get more and more power, that intoxicating drug when you know that poor piece of squirming humanity is at your total mercy. Judges no longer make decisions on the law but on what plays best on TV and how they feel that day. You are no longer rewarded for what you do but penalized for what you might do. You need a lawyer before you sign a receipt for anything because you can’t read the legalese and you know the guy handing you the pen is lying to you. You suddenly discovered you weren’t electing your representatives, you were electing paid drone for the big businesses that were so big you didn’t even know their names. Had you even heard of AIG before collapse? It 6 PM, do you know who your bank is today?
George coined a new phrase to describe today working class: Zombie Workers. You are already dead, you just aren’t certain if they are going to keep the body, sell you to another company or toss you out the door to be buried in refuse heap of the unemployed. And the guys holding the strings are the Zombie Banks: already dead and still eating all your money. Folks, the change has to come from the top down in this county. We, as individuals, can’t effect it from the bottom up any more. The problem is way too big. We have new leadership that knows that and also knows that one man can’t do it. It takes teams of the brightest and the best that still remember what the words social responsibility mean. Here’s a hint. It doesn’t mean socialism. We need to understand you can’t undo 30 years of down sliding and moral corruption that started at the top with lies, greed and power madness, in 3 months. It is going to take a lot of work, some real justice and a lot of money to replace what has been taken from us and we all need to do our part. What was taken from us is TRUST and that is really hard to restore. It no longer matters what your religion, color, sex or lack there of is. What will matter, if we are to come out of this, is what you are on the inside. Are you honorable? Do you honor your commitments? Are you willing to work for what you want? Are you willing to help the guy next door? Do you even know the guy next door? When you agree to something, will you keep your word? Will you stop lying and manipulating anyone in a lesser position so you have the advantage? Will you stop making fun of, looking down on and deriding those who aren’t as capable, smart, rich or good looking as you think you are just to make yourself feel better for a moment? Are you willing to embrace a new sense of honor, responsibility and reliability that recognizes only one ideal and one creed: being a good person that respects your fellow people. Because if you aren’t, prepare for more of the same and it getting a lot worse. Respect isn’t something that comes with a position, a spot on TV, a BMW, an I-phone or a designer outfit. It is something you earn by being a good person. When that isn’t the requirement and respect is forced, everything tumbles into chaos because then people come to the conclusion that respect is not earned, it is stolen by being the worst to get to top and that power will equal respect. And then my friends, as the Marie Antoinette learned, the revolution begins. That tears down everything and you will spend centuries rebuilding to just get to where you are today. Revolutions tend to replace the current evil with a lesser evil not a good.
So, today, take the time to stop and send an email to one person and just say, “If you need help, I will do my best to help you.” It might be some canned food, a shoulder to cry on or watching the kids while they are on a job interview, but I guarantee, the reward will feel better than a 50 dollar bill and it will start the ball rolling. Instead of calling zoning, offer to mow your neighbor’s yard, help fix their car or prop up that fence. Leave a bag of dog or cat food for a friend who having hard times and has a pet. Do something to restore the faith in humanity being humane. You can do it. My parents did it. I’ve done it. It doesn’t even hurt.

Forecast and Faery Finder for 04-20-09

04-20-09

Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Silver and the incense is Clary Sage.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Tower: attention. There are two halves to everyone’s personality: the Light and the Shadow. The Shadow side is nothing more than a worst case, elongated look at the Light side. It is the place where you imagine the worse that can be in yourself and others. As long as you think there really are two halves, you will have inner conflict. When you can stop and recognize the Shadow, give it it’s just dues and continue on with rational thought, the conflict ceases and you succeed beyond your wildest dreams. Keep in mind recognition is not indulgence.


Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, the Moon enters Pisces at 1:55 AM EDT. Let the nostalgia reign while practicality goes out the window. For the next week, expect a lot of reaping what was sown in the financial sectors. This is a day in while authorities or elders are looking for ways to make changes without throwing the baby out with the bath water. It is a good day and it is good for planting and fishing.


Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say it’s hard to awaken your true self at a pity party.


Today’s Cat Comfort card is Cat’s Cradle. “Time to untangle the knots. Don’t put it off any longer.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Gloominous Doom. Just when you start to pull yourself out of the doldrums, here he comes, Mr. Worst Case Scenario. Poor Me, if it can go wrong, it will. The first step on that downward slide into self-destruction is self-pity! He is the friend that helps you explore just how bad it really seems, sits at the bar and trashes management and the company and helps you destroy your relationships. He is the Soul Shrinker’s first cousin. Rather than focusing on how we curse other he looks at how we curse ourselves. The more pity we have for ourselves, the worse our lives becomes and the more pity we need. So grab your bootstraps and start pulling yourself up out of this swampy mire of self deception.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 8 and the element is Wood. The Ox finds conflict today. It isn’t an auspicious day for anything.


Today’s Message from the Universe is: “The plan of my life is now unfolding step by step, according to the will of my Higher Self.

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER

I made a huge pot of chicken and dumplings with fresh green beans, sweet red peppers, celery and onions. Yummy! I got tired around chicken thigh number 6 and the cats started getting a lot of meat with bone and skin. It was so good I gave up desert for a second helping with crusty yeast bread. The cats are having a chicken full night.
Now you would think they would be so full they couldn’t move when you add four cans of cat food and all the dry they can eat, wouldn’t you? So, of course they get into a fight in the hall way I have to break up. It was over my nightgown not the chicken. I have weird cats. I tried to get Napoleon to go out after I broke it up and he gave me the “who me?” stare. I just finished my bath, licked my fur straight, I’m not going out there. I’ll mess up my manicure. Napoleon is a lover, not a fighter.
Prescious is in the top of the cat log supervising the fight along with Princess Probe 2 on the sink. Meanwhile, I have to find another nightgown as mine is now covered in cat food! Oh the joys of cat ownership! And as all this goes down, I am watching Bitwit destroy the shop on the Internet. She is being helped by Solstice. I have to find a way to yell at them from the house over the Internet.
I accidentally, and I assure you it was accidentally, turned on a sports program. I can’t help but wonder why my bailout money is being used to buy huge, expensive advertising spots to get people to take out credit cards when the banks are screaming they have to raise the interest rates and fees to the existing good customers to make up for the “toxic” debts on other credit card accounts. Somehow, I think I at least deserve a cup of coffee and a kiss with this one. Maybe if they advertised in spots attracting a different demographic….or stopped issuing credit cards to uncredit worthy people - hey, I know some people who got cards I would lock up the silver - if I had any - if they dropped in for a visit. My cat has a higher IQ than these bank executives and he can’t get a bail out. All he wants is a case of cat food and a pint of Cosmic Catnip. I’m sorry - he wants a case of salmon. Napoleon corrects me.
Now, I need to figure out how I am going to squeeze all that chicken and dumplings in the fridge or the freezer. The problem with eating fresh veggies is they take up a lot of room in the fridge until you reduce them down to cooking bits unless you want to waste the gas driving over to the market to buy more every day and I don’t. Some days I wish I still lived out in the Homestead farming area, but I don’t miss the spray planes buzzing my trailer by mistake. Insecticide drifts.
I am studying the difference between square foot gardening and vertical gardening at www.foodforeveryone.com . It is a very interesting concept and as soon as we can start building beds, both systems will probably got into effect. I also have to work out a drip irrigation system for the front of the shop. As one man said, weeds can’t grow where they don’t have water. So far the seed the birds drop that sprouts provides the cats with their daily green grass intake. I just pull it up and bring it in the shop.
Update: defying several laws of physics concerning space and dimensions in the Universe, I got the chicken dumplings and the strawberries in the fridge. Take that Dr. Who! I won…Does the Snoopy Happy Dance and goes to bed.

Forecast and Faery Finder for 04-19-09

04-19-09

Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Gold and the incense is Marigold.
This is Orthodox Easter.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the King of Wands: restriction. You need to visualize what you want and focus on it.


Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, the Sun enters Taurus at 6:44 PM EDT. This is an absolutely great day for all communications, psychic readings and work, matters concerning money or property and ridding yourself of habits and the knee jerk reactions from old injuries.


Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say your problems seem to have you feet stuck in concrete and your ability to soar is limited to a day dream or two. You can not see the forest for the trees. Take a break and bring things into perspective.


Today’s Cat Comfort card is Caterpillar. “Slow down. Take time to focus on the small stuff.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Nelys the Alcheyst. For Nelys the everyday life is an exercise in alchemy. She knows that you can be transformed by your inner self or the things that occur to you. When everything are stuck, nothing is moving and you feel like the Universe is on hold, call on Nelys to wave her rowan wand and all things start moving again. If that doesn’t unstick your Universe, perhaps you need to make some inner changes in attitude, behavior or philosophy. In that case, she will show you the path to take. No matter which the case, something will happen when Nelys drops by.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 1 and the element is Wood. The Rat finds conflict today but the Rabbit is having a great day. Hair cuts, medical procedures, writing and gambling are favored. This is not an auspicious day for births.


Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I have nothing to fear. Divine Love and Wisdom are now in action and produce wonderful results.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at a time.

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER

After I awoke yesterday with a wrecking ball in my head and the migraine from Hades, I wandered into the bathroom and thought: Oh, crap, vertigo. The Universe was tilting at a 45 degree angle. Then I managed to prop one eye open a bit more and saw Napoleon sitting in the shower with a self-satisfied look on his face that only the little emperor can pull off. So, I took a second look and discovered my shower rod was now hanging at a 45 degree angle and Napoleon was enjoying the tent he had made for himself out of the shower curtain. Hey, at least I didn’t have vertigo.
Has the whole freakin’ country gone mad? Twenty states want to secede from the Union. They think they can do it better. Before jumping on that band wagon remember what it brought us the last time. Believe it or not, a banking crisis like we just had though far worse. I know you just said: Huh? This whole thing (the banking crisis) started with Reagan and the return the power to the states by removing Federal regulations. Want to know what it was like without Federal regulations? You had child labor, the company store, debtors’ prisons, slavery, blatant discrimination against anyone who wasn’t a “Christian White Male” with state sanctioned execution of the different ones, states printed their own money with nothing to back it up, they charged as much tax as they wanted…etc. Just this week, we have a city in Miami finding out one of its commissions has been running up 5,000.00 a month cell phone bills for calls to the Dominican Republic that he thinks they should pay for him even though the contract with the commission clearly states the cell phones are for city business only. But the more interesting thing in the whole mess is that Sprint gave the city 10 free cells phones in exchanges for a huge cell tower that it runs in the middle of the city.
Now how is that interesting? There is an anecdotal link between a variety of health problems from migraines (which I never had prior to the cell phone tower being built next door to the shop) to cancer of the brain from the emissions from your local friendly cell phone tower. Cities have enacted laws to place these towers away from homes and schools. So, for thirty pieces of silver, oops, ten cell phones, your local city is perfectly willing to sell out your and your children’s health. Are you sure you want State’s Rights?
Now you may say, call the FCC. Oh, give me fifteen minutes to stop laughing. George Senior pulled the FCC’s teeth because they had too much power and ability to find agencies that should be confining their spying to outside the USA doing it inside the USA. This tower is so far over the limit in allowed emissions that the most powerful wireless phone can not operate over twenty feet from its base station without being swamped. A major TV station’screw could not film here because the tower swamped their equipment. All they could get was static. This was not some dinky public access film crew. This was one of the big three networks. George has the equipment to measure what that cell phone tower is broadcasting and it is so far over the limit it pegs the meter. The FCC is too busy, doesn’t check these things or has no jurisdiction. Take your pick, you will get one of those answers when you call them. That is the real reason I am only here 4 hours a day. Oh, and there is no proven link between cell phone towers and any health problems. Now there is link between cell phone usage and brain cancer but the tower with thousands of times the strength of a single cell phone has the government stamp of good health on it. You want your local government in control? I suggest while you are waiting to find a job, you attend a few meetings down at your local government headquarters. Just drop in. Just observe for a week and then write and tell us if you want those yahoos in control of your life any more than they already are.

Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Black and the incense is Magnolia.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Ace of Wands: stimulation. Once you understand your personal needs, then you can let intuition guide you. Doing it in the reverse manner leads to some unpleasant surprises and the statement: be careful what you wish for: you might get it. Understand how your past acts as emotional triggers.


Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, it is an aspect free day until the feeling of aggravation with rules, regulations and responsibilities begins in the late night.


Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say it is hard to be self reliant today. So, connect with friends and family and your support net or the Fae if you have no human ones.


Today’s Cat Comfort card is Catapult. “Launch yourself forward. Go for it!”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Ilbe the Retriever. If you can not be moved my those huge canine eyes, tattered wings and look of sheer love even after he has lost your keys for the thousandth time, something is really wrong with you. Always remember that the lost item will be found in the last place you look and with it a clue to a hope and a dream you need to revisit.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 9 and the element is Water. The Boar is finding conflict today but the Dragon and Snake are having a great day.


Today’s Message from the Universe is: “The Plan of my life is now unfolding step by step, according to the will of my Higher Self. I acknowledge each one of its stages with serenity, detachment and joy, knowing that I am always lovingly and wisely guided on my path toward the full realization of my true potential.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at a time.

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER

Prescious is a menace to humanity. He came over and laid on my stomach while I was waiting for the antihistamine spray to dissolve the wrecking ball in my head and I dozed right off…for 3 hours. I swear he somehow injects your aura with sleeping serum. It took me almost 5 minutes to get to the pin prickles sensation with the hand he had under him.
The shop cats were in a state of insanity as I was an hour late and carrying the most desired thing in the known universe: a fried egg sandwich with CHEESE! The latter is Isis’s downfall. She loves cheese. Even Howler was outside having a fit. Bitwit was throwing herself at me and the sacrifice of a can of cat food did little to dull the hunting instincts of that predator. She could not get a fix on the sandwich but she was checking every square inch of the shop. I managed to gulp it down before she found me.
I have just been so tired lately I have barely been dragging myself around. I was proud I managed to get to Wartmart yesterday and get the flowers as a thank you to the Fae. However, Wartmart is way more expensive than even Target on flowers. I had a choice between 4 huge white Mums, I think, and some wilted roses of an orange color I have never seen in nature or anywhere but the 99 cent store. Then the prices went up astronomically and selection proceeded in an inverse manner. Actually the big white things were the pick of the litter. Never going back there. I was so hungry I bought what they claimed was an egg salad sandwich. Don’t do that one either! I’ve never had egg salad crunch before and when I noticed the package said it was good until May 5, 2009, I had serious doubts about what I was eating. Well, that should add another year to my life and a well preserved one at that.
Last night I came out to find a huge puddle of water in the floor. For the life of me I could figure nowhere the water had come from and it was way more than any cat could hold or me for that matter. Then I noticed Turtle had managed to unbalance her bowl and tip all the water out. So I had to put towels down and get a scared Turtle refilled and rebalanced. I guess I have to check the aquarium out this weekend I found, reseal it and get Turtle her new home fixed up. When she can move the current one, she is getting too smart for it.

Forecast and Faery Finder for 04-17-09

04-17-09

Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Rose and the Incense is Mint.

Today is Orthodox Good Friday.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the King of Pentacles: motivation. Motivation is the key to all things. Know what motivates you. Take it out and polish it. Feed it and you will succeed.


Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, the Moon enters Aquarius at 2:19 PM EDT. Venus goes Direct in Pisces at 3:24 PM EDT where she is very, very happy for a while. Have a nostalgia party and you will be toast of the town. The fourth quarter of the Moon begins at 9:36 AM EDT. You can tug on the heart string of authority figures in the early AM but don’t push because the change to Fourth Quarter will have people evaluating your real progress and not taking any prisoners. It is a very social lunch time when age and class barriers drop. Shortly there after there is aggravation that this great feeling of comradeship cannot continue in the Universe. For the next couple of days, financial rules and regulations dominate the lines of communication.


Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say this is a day to have positive expectations and they will be fulfilled. Have negative ones and they will be fulfilled today. So, put on your thought police hat.


Today’s Cat Comfort card is Cat Woman. “Revel in your sensuality and passion. Do things that make you purr.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Solus, again. He was out and about yesterday so, quiet your mind and ask for his help and you will get direction.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 8 and the element is water. The Dog finds conflict today.


Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I forgive totally and freely. I let go of any resentment or guilt. I am free and I let everyone around me be free. Peace now reigns within me and around. I trust the great wisdom of the Universe and the present situation of my life is divinely healed for everyone’s good.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at a time.

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER

My day at the shop tends to start with the hello kiss from Bitwit. Then it is either give them a can of cat food or be bothered within an inch of my sanity. They get the can of cat food. I have to feed them and Blueman at the same time or they get another one when Blueman gets fed and I think they are eating me out of house and home.
You are lucky you got the forecast yesterday. It seems as the day wore on, the internet was interrupted more and more. Email was going down in Canada and the USA. Internet Radio was experiencing problems. Immediately it was linked to the tax protests around the country and the Obama administration was trying to suppress the news.
I had to laugh. First off, these “Tea Parties” have occurred every year except previously their focus was declaring income tax illegal.
You have probably heard of those schemes. They get you to stop paying your taxes and then when the IRS cracks down on them, they turn over their membership lists for amnesty and you get audited while they skip off with your membership fees, house at the beach and bank account in the Cayman Islands. Hence, they tend to get a one second blurb on the evening if there is nothing else going on in the Universe, like mold growing.
Well, this year they changed their focus to reducing tax expenditures and organized on Facebook their usual Tea Parties with a new focus. Immediately the Internet was interrupted and the usual mud started slinging.
Folks, stop and think. Who has the ability to interrupt the Internet? It is those lovely three letter agencies and the other one that locks you up without a trial or cause most of the time. The people running them haven’t changed in the last 6 months. Disrupting the internet would be a nice touch to make a movement seem larger than it really is on a really slow news day. Then the next day, when it is equally slow they can report that legislators are now “shaky” after yesterday’s protests. Let’s see the largest crowd was a thousand people. Five to ten thousand people protesting the war in Iraq had no effect on them during the Bushie years. Are you going to tell me a thousand people now has them running and cowering behind their desks? Wake up. You are being manipulated by that so called Liberal Media no one has been able to find. Not only that, but you don’t need those agencies to achieve what happened yesterday. You only need the “media” to put that spin on it.
You see, it could have been something as simple as a really large number of people trying to download forms from the IRS, file electronically to beat the deadline, transfer funds, etc. on Tax Day. And then of course, commiserate with their equally broke friends. Just about everyone in telecommunications knows the current phone companies’ infrastructure is barely able to support the current internet usage. (note: Even if you have wireless or cable that has to go to good old telephone company wires eventually.) Ever notice how your email slows down or crashes at peak usage times. Well, yesterday was a peak usage time all day and night up to midnight when the problem went away. Surprise! No censorship. No plots. No gigantic ground breaking movement to overthrow President Obama. Just a bunch of Americans trying to file their taxes or extensions on time and discovering the “create an account“ button is not on the page the IRS said it was. I know, I was one of them. I mailed mine after George and I both gave up trying to follow the instructions on the IRS web site for a freakin’ hour, but that was on the 14th before the rush. I’m sure the 15th provided a nervous breakdown for a lot of people who didn’t have time to mail their returns.
Now, psychically, yesterday you had a huge amount of ambient nervous energy penetrating the ether which causes everyone to get jittery increasing the amount of ambient energy until you don’t have to be psychic to feel it. That is why everyone is so jumpy on April 15th. Then when your nerves hit their saturation point, the exhaustion hits and you drop like a rock. Bet you feel better today.

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Purple and the incense is Balsam.

Passover ends today.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Empress: conception. You want time to cease and reason and emotion to take a hike. You want to just lay in the sun and let the butterflies dance to the rhythm of the Universe around you. All the confusion of recent weeks demands a mental vacation so you can once again feel your potential and incubate it. Trust your intuition and when the moment for action arrives and you will succeed.


Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, the energies are very easy today for communications and solving problems involving restrictions, rules and regulations. You can break free today! This is fertile day for planting root crops.


Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say this may not be the day to indulge in humming, singing and other music as it will aggravate the somber attitude of those around you and in power.


Today’s Cat Comfort card is Catamaran. “Stay balanced. Ride out the storm.”

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Solus. Solus is the crux between the manifest worlds and the energy worlds of the Singers. When you simply run out of options and have nowhere to turn, quiet your mind and Solus will come to you. Your trust, knowledge, and conscious choice will allow him to guide you toward spiritual empowerment and manifest reality in a gentle way. Have confidence and take action.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 7 and the element is metal. The Rooster finds conflict today but the Dog and Boar are having a great day. Construction is not favored today but haircuts, medical procedures, writing, births and gambling is.


Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I stop now and I quiet all inner agitation. I peacefully and calmly take the time to appreciate the beauty of everything around me as well as the beauty of my Soul. I listen to nature’s messages and to the music of the Universe. In the peaceful state, my higher self guides me gently toward the fulfillment of my destiny.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at a time.

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER

We call it Yahoo Weirdness, so if you are in one of my Yahoo groups and you get this twice, I only sent it once. That has already happened today, once.
The Bitwit is not only strange but really, really smart and she must have the nose of a bloodhound. I got a shipment in today - I will gush later - and it was full of the usual Styrofoam wigglies. Now, there are some long and thick worms that are made of starch and biodegrade but they were not in this box. Suddenly, Bitwit goes head first in the box, rear wiggling out the top and is rooting around. Next thing I know she comes out with a starch worm in her mouth and I swear, it must have been in the bottom of the box. Now she is going into the box searching for what must be the other single starch worm in existence because I sure don’t see one. Now for the gushing part of the program:
I am saving them for CUUPS next weekend - not this coming one. I have learned depending on the area of the country you are from, that statement can mean different things. Unless you come into the shop and ask for them, I am keeping them hidden. So what am I smiling so secretive about? Well, there are blue and there are green dragon pen holders with corresponding pen. You are going to want one of those for your magical desk or just to freak the muggles out! Then there is the Bast letter opener that sits in its own little pyramid holder with an eye on it! And last, the pentagram plaque with the black cat on it! Now, I have the Amy Brown cat faery necklaces in and the Bergsman Faery Necklace with a double winged enameled Fae on it holding the proper symbol. They are gorgeous and will go up on the web page if they don’t sell at the CUUP’s Beltaine event the 25th. Oh, and I have more of the stainless steel, laser cut out pentagrams in! If one can survive George, you know they tough little beggars.
It’s a spitty, hot and windy day like the tourist council doesn’t want you to know we have. There are still complaints about the bird food but at least they aren’t throwing seeds at me any more. Something took my pepper off the plant. I will get that iguana! Oh well, it is branching out and perhaps I will have more in a few weeks. The sweet potato vines came back after I surrounded them with Society Garlic. Garlic chives does not repel iguanas. They ate right through it but the Society Garlic seems to work. Now I know why they planted it in the medians of Lyons Road. Anything else would have been an iguana grazing ground. I realized that when I put the raised beds for the garden out back of the shop, I have to fence them in top and bottom with chicken wire. So we are looking at a huge cage. Otherwise, the iguanas will mow my garden down. One of them on the canal is over 3 feet long without the tail! The weather is set to cool down for a while and I have hopes the tomatoes will survive what was supposed to be spring but is acting a lot like summer.
Even though I know the Lunaria or Honesty take almost three weeks to germinate, like all gardeners, I checked it the next day and the next day…..

According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is Topaz and the incense is Bay Laurel.

FORECASTS:

Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Three of Swords: desolation. Find out the root cause of your fear and it will be banished. Grieve and move on with your life.


Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, the Moon enters Capricorn at 1:27 AM EDT. For the next six days emotional energies are high and out bursts are very possible. You don’t want to let go of the old, worn out ways of living. This will be a very psychic time for the next week. Today is a time of change. Make use of these wonderful aspects to get things done.


Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say there are blocks to peace of mind today. I don’t know. Do you think it being April 15th could be one of them: TAX DAY!


Today’s Cat Comfort card is Cat Goddess. “Ask for help and you will receive guidance.” Notice you are not getting help…they are cats!

Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for the Bodacious Bodach. He is the Old Man in Gaelic. He really does mean well and he runs around ‘fixing’ things. Unfortunately, competent is not his middle name. He will do your filing and if you are lucky at the least the papers will wind up in your filing cabinet, but never in the right folders. He is a class A meddler! Nothing ever turns out the way he expects it too or you want it to. On the other hand, he can be trying to ‘fix’ the problems deliberate saboteurs are creating in your life and business. So, create a new order and stick to it.

Today’s Lo Shu Number is 6 and the element is metal. The Monkey finds conflict today but the Rooster is having a great day.


Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I need not worry about difficulties as I realize that they are opportunities for me to grow in love and wisdom. I accept what is. I follow my intuition and I step into action without delay. Wonderful and unexpected solutions appear to me, and I bring my personal contribution to the world with enthusiasm and joy.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at a time.

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER

I think the stress of the last two weeks caught up with me. I laid in bed and was simply too tired to move. Finally I managed to crawl out and get some breakfast and then Napoleon settled in my lap and told me I wasn’t moving. I managed to scoot him out and he sent Purdy von Sweets in and she is a hook the claws in sort of gal. Not only that, but she had had her coffee and was hyper. I finally got her out, got dressed and crawled to the shop.
The Bitwit tried to pin me down and I finally made it to the computer. The wind is so high it is knocking plants and everything down. The birds aren’t even flying around.
