Ask Alice

White Rabbit

The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well.

Either the well was very deep, or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and to wonder what was going to happen next.

Lewis Carroll

Hello everyone. I hope that everyone is well and prospering. Just four and a half weeks left of classes, then semester end, January Student Teaching. Things are happening so quickly. So guess what I was reading last weekend? Come on you will never guess. Okay, yes, I was reading Alice and Wonderland, or Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the original title. Oh and she (the professor) wants us to use a Psychoanalytical lens, never done that before (joking of course), however there is so very much to analyze I had to find one thing to focus on, and one that has not been done to death. I still have a bit more writing to do to unpack just this one aspect. I do not think that I had actually ever read it. Crazy stuff. I liked reading that Alice Liddell was incessant that Carroll write the story down, as he would just tell it to her and her sister. So we really do have her to thank for it. Alice Liddell needed money towards the end of her life, and had to sell the manuscript that Carroll had gifted her.

So, my darling sister send me this today, our horoscope for October 24, 2017

Your perceptions are accurate and your reasoning is shrewd. Nevertheless, you may tumble down a rabbit hole of doubt if you mix up facts and fantasies today. There’s nothing wrong with meandering along a stream of consciousness if you know when to step back onto dry land. Fortunately, your daydreams widen your vistas of possible futures. Exploring many alternative realities increases your chances for success as long as you can keep your eyes on your destination.

Return

Horray! Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy! I rejoice that I return to school on January 9, when Mercury goes direct, and it is my good friend, Ed’s birthday! I am SO ready. I have a new internship, and although it is a little farther than I wished, it looks like a great high school. I have connected with my school friends, ordered my books, and BAM, I’m ready.

Even though Mercury has been retrograde, and the usual MR activities occurred, it all worked out somehow, and for the better some occasions. I was going to share a great article on 2017 planetary alignments, but instead I will just link it here.

Also a Pleiadian Message~ The Great Changeover 2017-2027 ~ Barbara Marciniak

Also if anyone is interested I have added all my YA book reviews, and some critical analysis to my Digital Classroom here.

Namaste

Fairy Moonbeams

fae1Chopin

Hello friends. The moon is beautiful tonight. I have been so, so busy but finally relief, well… for a minute.

All is well. My A session class is over, and my first grade at ASU, is an A. The Shakespeare paper resulted in a B, and coming from him, that is a A. lol First Shakespeare midterm, and well, I passed, grades not in yet. I will avoid anything with elements of poetry analysis if at all possible in the future. What is the vehicle and what is the tenor for this metaphor? Ay, caramba! I do not know. I tried. But for the most part it is going well. I just found out I am going to high school next semester for my internship. Hmmm, We shall see?

I have read several more books, “Uglies” by Scott Westerfeld, a dystopian novel where everyone is ugly and then they’re not. A really fun read, and I got to go see him speak that week at a local bookstore with my “Uglies” group  from class. It was fun. I will warn that the book is one of three, and there was no resolution at the end. Argh! As soon as I am out for Christmas I will venture into the other two, “Pretties”, and “Specials.” After reading his book I thought he was going to be a bit deeper than he was, but he was really funny. Also “I Am J”, about a transgender teen, pretty good, but the GLBTQ community doesn’t seem to like it much. The author Cris Beam was well meaning, and the book had its moments.

So. . . I miss yall. I wish I had more time to connect. Sending out love far, and wide. Kisses, and magical fairy dust dropping down on the rays of the moonbeams to all~

Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius: A Shift in How We Apply Ourselves Collectively

By: Carmen Di Luccio

Friday is my first day of classes at ASU. All is going well but everything is hectic. Looks like my internship is taking me to middle school and the 8th grade. My first class Shakespeare performance. First up Macbeth!  I just found out I got a scholarship that is going to be a great help. I am going to be a Busy Bee. Send me good mojo all.

Much love~

Peacock’s, Pomp & Circumstance

Most of my blog buddies are friends on Facebook, so y’all are up to date. Graduation was fun, It felt like an accomplishment although it was just community college. Boy I love, love that school, and had such erudite professors, who are great teachers. As education is my major, I always got a twofer; I was learning say Literature, and watching their teaching style. All of the professors were there to congratulate us, and that was a cherished moment. Oh, and I got to walk to Pomp and Circumstance! (You can see it on my Facebook page.) Today I met with my ASU, Mary Lou Fulton Teaching College adviser, Chris, super nice guy. We took the light rail to the Tempe campus, so it was also an adventure. Parking is super expensive there, and I would get some exercise if I chose that method of transit. I am also considering taking my bike, if my knee is down with that. So more delays, I have to get my finger print card, I had no idea but I start teaching in a classroom my first semester, one day a week. Wow, jumping right on into this. Well that is pretty much it, things are flowing it a it better than that last month, my computer is in the shop yet again.

A special thank you to all my friends, and family for all the beautiful roses, card, parties, best wishes. . . it was really, really cool! I am blessed!

I am inspired by peacocks lately, and I know I have covered its symbolism before, as well, as Julianne, at Through the Peacock’s Eyes, and others, but I will include a bit here anyways.

Namaste

Contemplations

poppy_fairy2

Well now that was quick, but not painless. I just completed the online, eight week, instead of sixteen week, Survey of British Literature after 1800. Talk about self-study. Talk about fast paced. Oh brother, but I knew I could do it, and it is done. I certainly will spend more time with this literature. I love most all of it. As well as the Romantic, and Transcendentalist in America, and those associated; Poe, Hawthorne, and Melville too. My head is swimming with it all. Concurrently been in the application process for ASU, and all going swimmingly, all transcripts are in, and I hit a snag, after 3 years, and 3 months, apparently to them, I am a non-resident. UGH! Don’t even ask but I have to appeal it. Just send me good mojo please.

So I want to pick a parting poem in honorarium, and celebration., but what shall it be? I shared something by most all studied but William Wordsworth, he deserves a spot. One of the so called “Lucy Poems.”

She Dwelt among the Untrodden Ways

William Wordsworth

She dwelt among the untrodden ways
         Beside the springs of Dove,
A Maid whom there were none to praise
         And very few to love:
A violet by a mossy stone
         Half hidden from the eye!
—Fair as a star, when only one
         Is shining in the sky.
She lived unknown, and few could know
         When Lucy ceased to be;
But she is in her grave, and, oh,
         The difference to me!

Gentler

Mermaids Chair

Raga Keeravani – Indian bansuri – Flute –

Hello friends. Monday last, while walking to class, my guide told me, “Be gentler, be more gentle with others, be more gentle with yourself. Be softer, drop the defensive walls built in childhood. Be vulnerable, show vulnerability.” “Say What? My inner child starts to panic a bit. I have let it ruminate in my thoughts over the past week, and reflecting upon the defensive tough, yet friendly egoic wall. As children we do what we have to do to survive. I am not inferring I had a tragic childhood, not at all, but events that impressed the psyche of the inner child. All things to observe and put into that alchemical fire of transmutation. Really trying to see myself from an outsiders perspective, by outsider I mean anyone who is not me. Wait you are all me, and I all you, therefore seems pretty silly to have a wall at all doesn’t it.

It is a very busy time with finishing up my MAPP program at the community college, (actually graduating with and AA which is not my goal, but a milestone,) and applying to ASU, so, so much to do. I am sure many of you have been through the process. All in all, I am blessed, blessed, blessed. Life is sweet.

As you may recall, or not, I love the iChing readings at iFate, they always have deep relevance. This was from this morning.

Hexagram 57

“Spreading”

3/6/16

Like gentle wind wafting through a village, this hexagram suggests a time of influence and change. This is a time when clarity and truth can pierce through veils of illusion. Through earnestness and a sense of quiet peace, you can penetrate the hearts of those around you and spread goodwill and prosperity. This is a time to speak up and let your voice permeate the land. Communicate your wants and needs to those you love. The key here is to be gentle but continual with the expression of your dreams and wishes.  Your will has incredible power to spread at this time.  Be heard – but be true to yourself.

Description Changes:

“Kneeling Before an Alter”

This line is suggestive of the power of humility. If you want your ideas to flourish and be received well by others, spread them out as if you are kneeling before the Divine.

Hexagram 53

“Gradual Progress”

Like a young sapling slowly reaching toward the sky, this hexagram portends an incremental process toward new achievements. This is a time to put all your energy and attention directly on the step you are currently on. Too frequently we focus on the final destination without focusing on all the fascinating destinations along the way. Let each step be its own adventure and its own goal.  Now is the time to focus on today.  Tomorrow will still come.
