Forecast and Faery Finder by Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit
According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is White and the incense is Ylang-Ylang.
Now I never thought of this but in the Almanac today, Elizabeth Barrette suggests that to affect technology we should use synthetic materials and energy. An example she uses is instead of using quartz, you use Austrian crystals, clean them with glass cleaner and sit them on appliance to charge them. HUMMMM…I wondered why I have always insisted on using a huge leaded glass crystal in Vanwitch for protection and wiping it down with Windex weekly, charging it with the radio….Some things are just instinct.
Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Nine of Cups: satiety. Partying and denying you have a problem is no escape. It is a fear of success and responsibility. It is time to grow up and take responsibility. Destiny plays a role in our lives but we are in the driver’s seat. Going with the flow isn’t bad unless you are abandoning your principles to do so.
Astrological Source: Llewellyn’s 2007 Daily Planetary Guide.
Astrologically, we finally move out of Mercury’s storm area, he speeds up and life starts moving forward! Goddess, it feels like this retrograde has lasted a lifetime! An aspect lasting about 3 days, to Mercury no less, causes us to hold on to grudges, regrets, old hurts and revenge. It will also loosen our tongue and we will say things we really wish we had thought about first. Avoid contracts because intuition and logical thought are a little fuzzy. None of this is productive. It is an energetic and productive and profitable morning. Use these energies wisely and lunch the reward will await you. By evening, even the authorities are willing to help you get around the things holding you back. Before retiring, ask you guides for guidance and you will get an answer!
Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say they would really like you to take a few moments for some environmental awareness today. Do some recycling. Clean up an area. Plant some flowers. Make a donation. They are drowning in garbage Folks and need our help.
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 G. Hobyah. Trust me, this is a hobgoblin. Hobgoblins love to find a flashlight, stand in front of it and cast a big scary shadow to scare the beegeebees out of you. However, when you finally place a glass over them, they are no bigger than a large cockroach and actually a little funny looking. That’s what they do. They magnify worries and possible threats until they immobilize you. Otherwise, you might stop and check to see what is really casting the shadow. Get your fears out in the open, examine them and come up with a practical plan. G. Hobyah will retreat back into the baseboard.
Today’s Lo Shu Number is 7 and the element is wood. The Rabbit finds conflict today but the Dog and Boar have ease. This is NOT an auspicious day for writing, gambling, construction or births.
Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I know that peace on earth begins with my own inner peace. I release all negative thoughts I might have about myself and others. I rediscover the purity, the simplicity and the power of the Divine Child within 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
Everyday when we feed the Microwits we let their mother out of the cage so she can have a much needed break from the kits. Then we put a can in the cage and she runs around and steals food from everyone else. Well, I got involved in the kitchen and didn’t get back to her immediately. By the time I got there the bowl contained about a mouthful of food. You should have seen the look on her face when she hopped in the cage and went for her main meal. Meanwhile, 4 little Microwits had the most self-satisfied looks on their faces. I think I heard them meow: dessert! And then they grabbed her…..
First we got a watered down version of the credit protection bill. Hey, we have less rights with credit card companies than we did before Reagan. Wouldn’t you like to write contracts that weren’t worth the paper they were printed on? We got watered down versions of banking protection while bankers took off with million dollar bonuses and perks on our dollar. We haven’t got a health care bill worth bird food. Now we are getting a watered down environmental protection bill. Okay, we can replace AIG, Car Companies, Credit Cards, and Banks, but we can’t replace the planet. How long before that gets through the thick heads in Washington, DC? Oil is not the answer to everything.
Meanwhile on a state level, we are running out of water, we have run out of roads and we don’t have enough money to educate the children we have in school. So, what does our illustrious Republican governor do? He signs a bill overthrowing growth control and tries to pass it off as a way to revitalize the inner cities. This lofty purpose removes all the fees for road construction, new schools and impact from developers who are redeveloping the inner cities. That is what they want you to believe. However if you read the bill you will discover redevelopment means change of usage and that can be from agriculture to single family and that 3 guys drinking beer at a rest stop qualify as an inner depressed city area. Nice job Charlie!
Down on a local level, the screaming has begun as schools face massive cuts and the Sheriff refuses to budge an inch on his budget. One might note that the commissioners have not suggested they need a cut in pay for a PART TIME job that pays a 100,000.00 and more a year all in raises they have voted themselves during the boom years. Wow, it’s a good thing it isn’t a full time job. We would really be broke. Then there are the millions in future construction funds and not a peep on how much, if any, interest this money is earning. Then there are the slush funds they have. Let’s slash the library budget but don’t you dare touch the fund for that 200,000.00 sculpture my cousin made and we bought for the lawn at the library. Well, folks, anarchy is looking awful cheap and good. Let’s start having pancake breakfasts and bake sales to raise money. In today’s economy, we would sell out fast. Let’s rent the classrooms to the recently homeless at night when we aren’t using them. Hey, we got showers in the gym! Open the kitchens for low cost meals. Most business employee would flock to them for lunch and dinner and hey, breakfast. There are lot’s of ways we can make money off what we already have. That is the first lesson in a Depression and that is what we are in. Use what you have. Kids, want a summer job? Make one. Lemonade doesn’t sell well but get up at 6 in the morning, pick a busy corner and sell coffee. I know you would have had my business when I was commuting. Force governments to get rid of silly laws on vendors and zoning so we can survive. Stop requiring grass when we need gardens. Fire our current politicians!
