Grace

Grace

Hexagram 22

Like a sacred fire lighting up the night sky, this hexagram is about the beauty of form – the grace of the material world. When something is pleasing to the eye, it can fuel success and happiness. This is a favorable time to begin something new, alter one’s wardrobe or redecorate. Adornment brings confidence and freedom. Enjoy the shifting appearances, but don’t over indulge in them or they will distract you from true value.

Choose A Dream

“You choose a dream, or some other fantasy- image, and concentrate on it by simply catching hold of it and looking at it. You can also use a bad mood as a starting point, and then try to find out what sort of fantasy-image it will produce, or what image expresses this mood. You then fix this image in the mind by concentrating your attention. Usually it will alter, as the mere fact of contemplating it animates it. The alterations must be carefully noted down all the time, for they reflect the psychic process in the unconscious background, which appear in the form of images consisting of conscious memory material. In this way conscious and unconscious are united, just as a waterfall connects above and below.”

Hopefully I don’t get a bee in my bonnet. I have no idea where this awesome photo came from must be from some European Vogue Magazine? I hope Spring is blooming for you all. It is beautiful and pollen laden. I receive Campus Alert emails whenever there is a hazard, or danger. I have to tell you. . . it is always “the bees.”  When I see an alert i think, “Let me guess. It’s the bees.” lol As I imagine John Belushi in his bee character from Saturday Night Live,

The Killer Bees

😀

I created a fairy sanctuary in my garden. “Build it and they will come.” I see little sparks of light now and again. They are protected by a gnome and standing stones.

Me super busy push toward semester end.

Hey Happy Spring everyone. I am so very busy with school that I hardly have time to blog, but I cannot imagine ever abandoning it. In one more month I will complete my first year at ASU and I will be a senior, Yay! I can hopefully catch up with all my wonderful friends here then. I have had the opportunity recently to work with Special Ed students and oh what a joy they are to work with, however my passion is Language Arts, speaking of which Grammar is brutal, a little better than Algebra. We have been making stepping stones with cement and my garden is more enchanting than ever.

My good friend Dewin has developed a blog, Gallybloggers designed to assist the homeless with your poetry contributions, so please visit his blog and support his noble efforts.

I do not watch the news or television and visit Facebook rarely however I heard there was winds of war, so my peace loving heart invites you to join me in visions, prayers, and meditation for peace.

May everyone be happy.

May everyone be safe.

May everyone be well.

May everyone feel love.

May everyone be nourished.

May everyone be fulfilled.

May everyone be at peace.

Namaste

Hello Happy Friday. A lovely Spring like day here. A day that was gifted me in my Spring break from school I had committed to work today, but alas it got cancelled so change of plan. Oh and I cannot read the text embedded in the image but bless them for sharing the image. I have been listening to my favorite astrologers this fine morning trying to get an idea of what is up? Sometimes the understanding is beyond me. The image and title allude to the Virgo Full Moon on March 12. I will share a few links below. One is from The Leo King, David Palmer, my son (from another mother) actually we have never met except on FB but I just feel like David is my son. lol He has his new fiancee on the show with him and it made me so happy. lol Crazy huh? I was happy he had chosen well.

Venus Retrograde & Full Moon

Full Moon in Virgo; Time to Enter Warrior Mode

 I was enjoying my magical garden patio, which as I have shared is darn near Xanadu to me. I was drawn to water my trees and plants, I just love the connection that you get with nature while doing such a simple task. I had created a puddle of mud at the foot of the patio, and I was compelled to just put my feet in and squish it around. If you haven’t done this in awhile, do it. Afterward I see my foot imprints left behind, sort of cool. It took my thoughts to the footprint of the guru, perhaps as I was listening to Ravi Shankar at the time. Honestly I have been hoping for a butterfly sighting . . . the day is young.

Also I have my outdoor kitty’s baby daddy to contend with, this Tom cat is huge, I mean at night he will scare you with his howl and scary gold eyes, he must be part Siamese or Persian as he has long hair, which is grey and white spots, and a slightly smushed face. Did I mention his howl would wake the dead and he is huge? I have named him Brutus. Both of his male offspring, Prince Fu, who is now named Carl, as I understand, and his brother Frankie, look like him. Brutus needs to be trapped and fixed, Pray for a good outcome for Brutus and all concerned.

Oxford deadline has come and gone but I still haven’t taken the flyer from my wall and it still has some unknown relevance, My tale bone is still sore but much better. Merlin, wizards, fairies and Tors still paint my minds imaginings. I have a unit yet to plan for my Methods of Teaching Language class, I am thinking “Unit of Thrones” one that would include Arthurian Grail Lore, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, a book of choice either, The Wicked Day, or any of Mary Stewart’s, Merlin Trilogy, Silver Eve (A YA novel female protagonist) or The Mist of Avalon. I would like to include Shakespeare, but a unit is 3 or 4 weeks, even the above is ambitious.

So I best get to scholarship essay writing. My internship is going real well but I am having a tough go of it in my Modern Grammar class so good vibes in that direction, or aka prayers etc… Much love everyone be well. The John Lennon lyrics, “strange days indeed” just popped in my head this morning, and the song lyric does not really fit the mood of the day which is light but nonetheless I share the song it may have a message (Oh of course there is the Shankar Lennon connection).

Sometimes the iChing just tells you how it is.

Innocence

Hexagram # 25

Your innermost nature is innocent, free from blame and always spiritually worthy. Only the outer persona – the role we play – is subject to blame. Being human, one gets subject to misfortunes. This is a time to be authentically self-forgiving for all that you think you have done wrong. Your deepest and most natural self is not to blame. Suffering comes by not knowing what you are underneath all those layers of personality. Be natural and unpretentious. This hexagram is a reminder that underneath there is innocence.

 

“Staying Present– This line is a reminder that every step of the way is its own destination. Put your attention fully on the task at hand. Results will come, but they are subject to a whole-hearted persistence with respect to the current step.

Embracing Problems”– Misfortune can come without rhyme or reason. It is the way of time and earthly life. Attempting to live completely free of problems is a trap. Learning to embrace and see problems in a new light is real freedom.

 

Heaven/Creativity

Hexagram #1

Heaven signifies the ultimate creative force. This hexagram formed of six unbroken lines signifies the purest form of power and positive energy. An expression of pure truth and strength that exceeds all worldly, physical or immediate concerns. A time of profound thought and conscious creation.

Hmm interesting times. I am hoping that all is well with you all. The day after I was hit by the SUV while walking a friends dog, I found a book called The Wicked Day by Mary Stewart, which is the telling of the story of Mordred of the Arthurian legend and tradition. I spent days reading when I should have been studying. It is the 4th book following The Merl in Trilogy. The day before the accident I got an iChing reading that said Thunder Bolt, well we certainly know what that was. So anyways the bruise on my thigh was a huge purple black circle the size of a soccer ball, on the third or forth day I notice a thunder bolt in the center of the bruise all white right into the circle, and low and behold it was surrounded by a obvious large purple dragon. It looked like a large tattoo. Pendragon and the tale of Mordred, very fitting. Oh and I am healing nicely.

A very relevant quote from The Wicked Day, as Mordred goes to Nimue, who is Merlin’s successor, to see if there is any avoidance of his destiny.

“Live what life brings; die what death comes”

I love the quote and found it very apropos to my life as we said goodbye to a wonderful man, husband, father, and friend to many, who lived a full and happy life.

One other really good thing. I have been getting great cards in my reading for awhile now, for the last 6 months I consistently get the 6 of Wands, and the victory parade, Oxford miracle needs to happen soon before March 1 cutoff. lol Oh I did win a thousand dollar travel grant, just need another 9k. 😉

So Solar Eclipse this morning…. I will share some links below.

Be blessed all ❤ I love you.
