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.
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).
Peace & Love
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.
GMT in London, 9:55 am EST in New York, 8:55 am CST in Chicago, 7:55 am MST in Denver, 6:55 am PST in Los Angeles, and 10:55 pm CST in Taipei.
Belated Gong Hei Phat Choy folks! I am a Fire Rooster, 1957, last rooster year what was it 2006, it wasn’t my favorite year I can tell you. But all signs point for this one to be a whomping good year for me, and my Fire Rooster boyfriend. He is painting a lot, and he has painted a Fire Rooster, but this isn’t it. I am not sure of the above artist, it is signed.
School is keeping me busy, as usual. OMG I have to walk a lot. I would take my bike but that would me putting it on my car, taking it off, taking it onto the lite rail, so forth, and so on….so I walk, and carry a super heavy backpack (I look at carrying the weight as an active karmic burn off lol). I am doing a lot of teaching presentations in all my classes and have done in my internship as well. I like the high school I am at, but it is far…… well 30 minutes, that is far for me. My mentor teacher Mr. Lopez is super fly. Sorry I am listening to “Super Freak” so the word “fly” just came out.
I have been entertaining Study Abroad at Oxford, I submitted the application, applied for one scholarship….but I am reconsidering as 10K is going to happen only if, 1) strike oil, 2) win lottery, or 3) a rich relative I don’t have dies and leaves me all their money. But I DID enjoy the dream and the emails that were headed Oxford. So I have it out in the grey creative matter. It could happen but I really need to focus on this degree which the Oxford credits would not apply to. I did see a whole list of English department scholarships that I am going to get on top of but they are not study abroad scholarships. Grammar is kinda fun. Wish me luck on my first Grammar exam Tuesday, plus two teaching demonstrations next week.
Well that about brings me current. Love yall ❤
Here is an article by Mystic Mamma on 2017 Fire Rooster Year.
Solstice draws nigh
dark days, long, longest night
journey of the soul
moving, ever moving
moving to stand still
still in the darkest light
the most glorious light
light of the undying Sun
standing sill. still point
where we bask breathe
delight in Light, Love
This ever turning play –
dance of dark and light
our soul’s shadow dancing
concealing and revealing
gently, reverently mirroring
cosmic flow and rhythm
of which you and I are part –
One in the eternal dance
meeting, re-uniting ever again
as One . . . separating, then returning
again and again
~Thanks to Holly Rose my FB friend, and sistar~

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Mercury Retrograde Christmas. My car, my boyfriend’s car….. and it isn’t even retrograde until the 19th, but other than an expected “Griswald Christmas” it is all good. Semester finally done, an A on the Shakespeare paper which felt like a huge accomplishment. All in all I got 3, A’s, a B+, and 2 B’s. I should be happy, and I am, but I could have done a little better. I am working on a visual and audio presentation on the paper, as I have such a vivid image of the play in my head, and I really like the paper. I will post to my academia.edu page when I revise it. It is nice to catch my breath but I am already to get back into school. I guess it is a good thing I picked teaching and English because I love them both. Graduation is May 7, 2018, so for those who plan to attend, Linda, Mary…lol anyone else, that is 18 months notice.
Have you ever had one song stuck in your head for over a week? I have had Barry White singing in my head for over a week. Please help exorcise Barry White’s, Never Never Gonna Give You Up from my mind. Really and life isn’t that sexy. lol
Oh and my sister talked to our dead dad via Jeanette St. Germain, cool huh? lol
If you are so inclined I linked an astrology article on MR below.
Happy Holidays! 😉
I cannot read the artist name but it is lovely.
