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.
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.
