Forecast and Faery Finder for 01/15/10
Forecast and Faery Finder
By Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit
According to Llewellyn’s Magical Almanac, today’s color is rose and the incense is vanilla. Today is the New Moon and the actual birthday of Martin Luther King, not the fake holiday one.
Today is the solar eclipse. If you want to know if it is visible and how visible where you are there is an excellent animation at this website:
Deck: Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea.
Today’s Tarot Card is the Ten of Cups: accomplishment. Right at the moment of success, we often find ourselves bereft and alone. You may have to eat crow but it is time to return to the people you have stepped on, forgotten and hurt because only those relationships can fill the void you now feel. New relationships will be built on a shifting foundation until you fix the old ones.
Deck: Healing with the Fairies.
The Faeries say:
It will hard to honor your true feelings about things as you apt to just try to keep the peace.
Today’s Cat Comfort Card is:
The Cat’s Out of the Bag: “Oops! Quick thinking needed.”
Deck: The Fairies’ Oracle by Brian Froud & Jessica MacBeth
Today’s Faery Finder is on the lookout for:
Old G. Hobyah, the Hobgoblin is around today, blowing our fears out of proportion and generally giving us ulcers. Sit down and look at things rationally.
Today’s Lo Shu Number is TWO and the Element is Wood. The Sheep finds conflict today but the Monkey has ease. Today is not an auspicious day for haircuts, medical procedures, signing contracts, gambling, starting construction or births.
Today’s Message from the Universe is: “I let go of all my preconceived ideas. I look at life and people around me in a new, open and accepting way. I am being divinely guided in a spirit of harmony and good judgment.” Annie Marquier creating a world of peace one thought at a time.
COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
How on earth anyone on this planet can look at the pictures coming out of Haiti and make these statements I simply cannot conceive?
Rev. Pat Robinson blames the earthquake in Haiti on the Haitians making a pact with the Devil to free themselves from the French. Old Rush, the drug addict, Limbaugh tells his followers not to donate to Haitian relief efforts. Now, not being a Christian I cannot in good conscience request these two things stop referring to themselves as a member of my religion, however as a human being I think I can speak for a lot of people in asking them to please excuse themselves from membership in any organic species on the planet. Gentlemen, you definitely are not human beings or any animal species I am familiar with. What you are, I do not know, but next time I run into Hitler, I’ll ask his species.
The frightening news today is about the cause of the earthquake. Scientists have been warning that this was overdue to happen. It is due to the movement of plates that encircle the west side (Pacific) of Guatemala down to Costa Rica where it crosses the isthmus into the Caribbean, follows the coast two thirds of the way down Venezuela, circles the Windward islands around to the north side of the Dominican Republic/Haiti and crosses the straight between them and Cuba on the south side, cutting through the Cayman Islands and cutting back through at Belize. The shelf edge that has been moving is right at Port-au-Prince, the epicenter of the quake. Now, take a look at the Pacific side of this fault and the Ring of Fire in the Pacific and you will figure out real fast why you should be concerned if you are on the west coast.
Geologists have been sounding the alarm for quite some time in the Caribbean and no one was listening.
Anyone on the West Coast want to play attention? Few buildings, no matter how good your building codes, survive a 7+ quake. The estimated death toll in San Francisco, should it be hit with one like this, is in the thousands and at least 150,000 buildings would be uninhabitable…which is geospeak for flattened. Then again, the super volcano under Yellowstone could erupt and get all of you except me cause I am in one of the few safe zones. My momma didn’t raise dumb kids. I am here for a reason. Hurricanes I can deal with easily. However, when the ground moves or molten rock heads my way………
Mr. B looked at his sister, little Fiona the sexy, and seemed to have a really puzzled look on his face. It was as though he was sure there was something he was supposed to do, wanted to do, but couldn’t remember. I told him that the good drugs at the vet cause memory loss and it has nothing to do with the fact he can’t sit today. Meanwhile, Boogaboo wants to know when his Facebook page will be up because he has fans. He is not content to share mine. Napoleon suggested a way to make money when George is laid off is to rent his sister, Purdy von Sweets, out as a mouser and sell Boogaboo. Well, that was scenario number one, but I can pretty much guarantee every scenario ended with selling Boogaboo. How dare he take Napoleon’s spotlight at the vet’s office! Poor Boogaboo really doesn’t care because he still can’t sit comfortably. Let’s just say he was really well endowed which makes for a larger incision and more pain.
The plants are outside getting solar powered, the temperature is a balmy 66 and this weekend we may even hit 80, a temperature I never thought I would be glad see. The interesting news is I found a lizard egg in the living room and transported it outside with the plants, so one lizard was kept warm. My Datura bloomed today so it survived the freeze in tact and healthy! I have a picture for those of you on networks with that capacity.
