Forecast and Faery Finder
By Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit
Tonight’s Forecast is being assisted by Conner with huge purrs. He is a feral rescue from Animal Control. He can thank his life to a case of mistaken identity and a Druid that is pretty darned good at mind control. They put feral cats down immediately. They were no match for me. He required welding gloves to remove from the cage. Conner is not a soft cat in any way. His fur is spiky and rough. He is huge and looks fat but it is all muscle. His purrs are so loud I can hear him down at my knees and I am almost deaf! He is just so happy to be alive, dry and well fed. Even adult feral cats can be rehabilitated.
According to Llewellyn’s Spell-a-Day Almanac, today’s color is purple and the incense is Yarrow.
Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Ace of Swords: respiration. Instead of letting your mind constantly wander, restrict it. Harness the power of focus. Will you use this new found energy for good or evil?

The Moon enters Aries at 1:56 PM EDT. Chiron goes direct at 10:46 PM PDT. The afternoon finds decorating not going the way we intended but you do have a budget. Remember, those jack-o-lanterns can be turned around and become Thanksgiving decorations. Purple can be for Yule. You are just not going to change the minds of those with the power this afternoon. That leads to some late night arguments.
Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say:
Get out and enjoy the magic of nature. Even snow is nature. Let your inner child be free.
Today’s Cat Comfort Card is :
Something the Cat Dragged In: “You’ve been having a hard time; things will get better.”

Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for:
The Singer of the Chalice comes to visit today. We are getting some really high level Fae this week! From the Chalice, a rainbow of energy pours forth: trust, joy patience, creativity, hope and even miracles. These natural energies are available to us all the time but we block them by not connecting with others and our world. Anger wears us down an blocks the healing energies. Hate closes us to love. Once we are truly open, bliss will follow.
Today’s Lo Shu Number is 7 and the Element is Earth. The Tiger finds conflict today but the Dog and Boar have ease. This is NOT an auspicious day for construction but it is for births. Now we have purrs and kitty biscuits assisting us.
Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I will not remain in this state. The healing forces of the Universe are now at work for my highest good. I open my heart to Divine Love, I follow my intuition and great successes now occur in my life naturally and easily.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at a time.
COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
Under the list of nasty things that happen in the night is sciatica. I think I levitated a foot straight up out of the bed. Then I twisted causing a cramp in the right foot and had to get it flat on the floor, all the time hopping out of the bedroom only to find myself surrounded by cats looking amused. It is so good to know I am keeping the local wildlife entertained.
So I sat in the kitchen with Rusty J. Hoover and went over the list of pain killers I could take to get back into bed. ZIP. Yup, with surgery scheduled next week I can’t have anything that thins your blood and that even includes the percodan because it has an aspirin type base.
The ugly result was I found myself digging through the fridge door for the bottle of wine. Wine aficionados, you might want to not read the rest of this. This bottle was so old, the label fell off when I took it out. It’s a pink color and I really hope it started out that way. The cat got the label and ran off. Anyway, I found a clean mini coffee mug. Yes, I don’t even know where the wine glass is. I only have one. I poured a cup of wine and started drinking. The stuff didn’t taste half bad and I got about half of it down before the lovely muscle relaxing hit. Alcohol doesn’t get me drunk, it just relaxes all my muscles and I fall under the table. I don’t even get a “buzz” whatever that is. I got back to bed and I could hear my big toe screaming, “There are ice cold needles sticking under my nail!” However from my ankle up the chorus was, “Shut up, we’re happy here.” So the last thing I remember is Napoleon purring me to sleep.
Today my candelabra arrived from spiritHalloween today. It is heavy, the little skulls have fangs, pewter color and you can use real candles in it if you want. I am very happy with it! You have to come to the CUUPS Witches’ Ball in Ft. Lauderdale and see it. I’ll be in the All Purpose Room doing Tarot Readings. Look for the…what else…witch. Yes, I have a great witches’ hat this year….
Mr. B and company managed to get a Palmetto Bug (huge cockroach) out of somewhere and were chasing it. It wedged itself under a storage box. All the cats were circling the box trying to figure out how to get it out when Purdy von Sweets jumped on top of the box. Squish! That one won’t be coming out. It’s batteries are now shot. Mommy will clean up later.
