Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit, on her way to the vet.
According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is brown and the incense is lavender.
Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Lovers: discrimination. Your missing part is neither a mirror image nor a perfect copy of yourself but rather a compliment designed to balance you. It is, however, within you. Learn that this cannot be found in another person but must come from within and embrace it. We must all master the solitary path before we are ready to share our lives. First we have to have a life!

Astrologically, the Moon enters Scorpio at 6:44 PM EDT. Just when you manage to let bygones be bygones and think you have evolved beyond knee jerk reaction in come the annoying calls and sudden emotional declarations. It’s just a test. Avoid strangling others. Intuition leads you to a better financial base around noontime. Keep your eyes open for opportunities. The desire to socialize is in the afternoon but everyone is too paranoid to be good company. Unwelcome discoveries about property, money and possessions occur in the later PM but you can call someone and fix it.
Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say every time you think you reach a level of higher consciousness today, something brings you down. Don’t despair. Tomorrow is another day. We can’t be spiritual all the time.
Today’s Cat Comfort card is Cat Goddess. “Ask for help and you will receive guidance.” However, with a cat, don’t expect actual help! J
Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for Tobaira of the Waters. She and her troop are in charge of purifying and charging all healing waters of earth. She oversees the wells, grottos and bodies of waters. Always invoke her when creating fountains for relaxation or just your Koi pond. Today, have one glass of mineral, hold it in your palms and ask for her blessing and healing and then drink it.
Today’s Lo Shu Number is 1 and the element is Earth. The Rooster finds conflict today but the Rabbit has ease. Today is an auspicious day for medical procedures, writing, gambling and births but NOT for haircuts or construction.
Today’s Message from the Universe is: “Patience and serenity are now filling my mind and my heart. I trust the Divine Wisdom which is at the source of everything. I stay calm and peaceful. I love, respect and accept everyone and everything around me as an expression of the perfection of the Universe.” 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
Vanwitch lives! It is a good thing she is under warranty because it was an air valve. The good news is that it explains the stalling. The valve was intermittent and the stalling also had no rhyme or reason. She has an oil change and a tire rotation. Coral Castle, here we come! When I found out, I wanted to run over an throw my arms around her. Last time she was left alone, she was sold. She must be scared on that lot all alone. Then again, she may be flirting with those Lincolns and Mercuries that share the Ford dealership. You can never be sure with her. When we left her in the parking lot a the Dermatologist we returned to find a huge truck snuggled up next to her. I always find the strangest vehicles snuggled next to her. It makes it darned hard to back out of the parking lot. She was returned today, running as smooth as glass and happy to be home. One more oil change before the warranty expires and of course, complete check up.
I was thrown for a loop when I got the call that I have basal cell carcinomas on my face. I am pretty ashamed of myself because I knew that all along. I think it was when they described removing one layer of skin at a time, freezing it, inspecting it under a microscope until they got the good stuff and then stitched me up that got me under local anesthesia or it could have been the fact that it is an all day procedure. Shouldn’t “completely unconscious” be in that sentence somewhere? “Local” shouldn’t be in there! At least it will be an actual surgeon doing the job and not a dermatologist with a scalpel in her hand. That will be in the “fun things” to do next month category. Yup, in good old tropical Florida, it takes that long to get the surgery because the schedule is full up!
I came into the shop at around 9:30 this morning. The cats were shocked. So, I started on the forecast. Now Ra did her level best to be the annoying pet me pest she is. Finally she fell asleep leaning on the magick box trying to get a scratch. I won’t say they were glad to get rid of me, but when I got home and turned the cam on, it was obvious every cat had crawled into their nap spot and disappeared. Before I left this morning, Napoleon had crawled onto my lap and hooked his claws in, clinging for dear life. I am not allowed to leave in the morning. When I returned around 11, he crawled into my lap and purred up a storm. To her credit, little Purdy von Sweets, spent the afternoon laying on me, purring and kneading, trying to keep me calm and safe. The Kitwits really are a loving little family.
I had gathered the plastic golf balls and put them in the shower to clean them with my nightly shower. Painstakingly, one by one, Josephina has carried each ball out hooked in her fang. Since she learned to hook her fang through the holes, she has been in complete control of the golf balls. Next week, I do it again.
One scary thing I noticed this morning on the way to the Ford dealership was the absence of traffic. A year ago, I would have been in bumper to bumper traffic. By 8:30 when we got to Denny’s for a quick breakfast, the place was empty. A year ago it would have been crowded. Oh, if you order the new Grandslamwich, they put powdered sugar on the edges so if like me you aren’t a fan of a sweet breakfast sandwich, you have to tell them. I could only eat half it is so big, so George had a huge lunch. We were accosted in the parking lot for money. The waitress told us that these young men wait until they are busy and then wander in and steal the tips off the table. I have enough sense to hold my purse tight when I see someone on a bike approaching me in a parking lot and to be ready to knock them down, so we fared fine in the parking lot. George ran interference and I skirted the guy and got to the door. There was scarcely anyone at Costco getting gas. Need I say the economy is bad.
Michael Moore published a good essay on GM yesterday. Yes, they have been their own downfall. Yes, we need to change our ideas about public transportation and drive less in more efficient cars. Unfortunately, the point at which I disagree with the essay is where the responsibility is dropped on the poor driver. Raising gas taxes is not going to solve the problem. The problem really originates in the job sector. In any good job, you are expected to be able to stay overtime at the drop of a hat. Now if you are depending on a car pool or public transportation, you can’t stay and get home. If you don’t stay, you may not have a job or a home. Then there is the attitude about public transport. In this country we can’t seem to run it on time. Every other country I have ever been in has had no problem with that! What is our problem? In other countries, you get on the bus or tube and there is a place to put packages and you don’t have to worry about anyone taking them. Martha had a woman walking off with her little suitcase out of baggage claim in Maui! You wouldn’t dare leave an empty bag sitting on a seat in the bus here and even have to watch your purse on airplanes. Stealing has become the cultural norm. It seems like every other commercial on TV glorifies stealing. Just watch them closely some day for the hidden message. Watch one Eggo commercial and I rest my case.
The other attitude problem is a really funny one. I wanted to take the Metrorail to Miami to the zoo. I have tried to get someone to go with me. After several failed attempts I discovered that my problem was not the zoo or Metrorail. The problem was public restrooms. People are afraid of them. Folks, the handle on the shopping cart you grab and let your kids hold on to, have snacks in and chew on is dirtier than the toilet seat or floor in a public restroom. Yes, it has been tested. Over half the carts were found to have feces and urine on the handles. They are never cleaned. Restrooms are cleaned and disinfected. Heck, I am trying to recover from a varient of Norwalk (I know I can’t spell it) virus I know I got at the pharmacy counter not in the restroom. I wasn’t in the restroom. I don’t know where your mothers got their phobias originally from, but they are invalid. If you are going to catch something, it is going to be somewhere else. Not only that but darn it, if you aren’t going to use the seat, put it up. The handicapped stall is not for fifteen kids. It is for people who have problems getting up and down. They can’t hover, so keep it clean in there. One day you will be old or disabled and then you will be as angry as the person you find waiting for that stall. They put a family restroom in every turnpike rest stop and I have yet to see one used. But every handicapped stall has a mother several little kids in it. Do you have any idea how easy it is for a kid to fall off (or into) that high toilet and crack their head open or to get their little arms caught in those safety rails and broken? That is not a safe place for a child. They can easily come up under those high sinks and whack their heads. Keep them out of those stalls.
