Day Four and another powerful day of death and transformation with Blue Self~Existing Hand in Yellow Seed wavespell
The sun has been intense today and I have been using the power of four for creating structure at this new mamma moon time. I am creating an outside space for my cats as I live near a busy main road although out in the sticks. My cats make the occasional foray into the back garden but tend to migrate to the hard to reach places where they feel safe. On the edge of the wild here, there are predators that would take them, my friend had one of her cats taken by a Fox. Buzzards fly over and my chaps are too big for an air lift but you never know with a buxom buzzard’s ego and so I am adapting a space my partner made out of scrap wood for the veggies to climb and covering it with shade netting so they can be out and safe ~ that is the theory so far I have only done one part with a temporary gate and they were out very quickly after Basil the black Siamese (very scaredy cat ) wailed loudly and launched himself full on at every available surface ~ something’s gotta give and it did 🙂
So my well intentioned pussycat paradise is being frowned upon at the moment. I have sweated today , cutting wood with a saw and sanding my jagged edges ~ my lines are wonky and it’s a good job I’m not a surgeon . I’ve been up the ladder banging in nails and was quite chuffed that I didn’t flatten my fingers for once. Getting better at hitting the nail on the head and today I really listened for the vibe when the nail hit the wood and was ready for big hits. This also expands into all my circle too as nothing is in isolation.
We have had an absence of birds in our garden the past few days and it could be because of a swap around and the arrival of our pool ~ sounds luxuriant. It is a big plastic blow up from the local DIY store ~ heavenly if you manage to survive the arterial cut off in your legs for long enough. I love the feeling when you emerge afterwards though. The sun is so intense even at 630 I am so loving the outdoors life but it is difficult digging the poly tunnel trenches ~ the clay is drying out at lower levels and even a pick axe is finding it tough. It is a great way to get fit and lose your bingo wings 🙂
So our birdy friend the Robin has disappeared and I wonder if he has left the planet as he is usually here every day many times eating the meal worms I get for him. I miss him. The blackbird has been absent too although I have heard him. Today we had a green finch which we don’t often get and is a very lovely sign of joy.
On a structural level I have made a decision today to end my rental of a room in Glastonbury ~ The Heart Centre. It was started in Mercury Retrograde and ends in it 15 months later. My intention was to create a shared space with several therapists and this simply hasn’t worked out so I have decided to bite the bullet and let it go. The idea of it is still alive and hopefully will resurface in the near future in another form.Following my own mantra ~ if your heart ain’t in it ~ bin it 🙂
I know I have to focus now as I go into my fourth year of my thirteen year cycle on my birthday ~ the 18th of August. I am a Blue Hand and it is my Blue Self Existing Hand Year ~ just realised the synchronicity as I am writing this 🙂 Good old Saturn strikes again.
This is when the magic happens for me ~ seeing the cycles, the patterns and knowing that we have to trust our heart wisdom.
Creating The Heart Centre has taken me on a learning journey and I have had the chance to see lots of past pattern matches repeating and how I can make a different choice.
That is what this life journey is all about and at midlife we generally become more aware of our mortality and as a result more discerning about how we spend our time and/ or throw a hissy fit and be the teenage rebel at 50 🙂
There are only so many hours in a day and having a family , a home , animals and a garden to care for take lots of time. I started today making a curry from scratch inspired by Rick Stein’s India programme last night. I have cooked curries for years and love the traditional recipes of Indian home cooking ~ Madhur Jaffrey is one of my favourite Indian Cooks. This does take a lot of time and effort ( and washing up 🙂 ) and it is so important I feel in family life. Food created in this way makes all the difference. We all did a dish ~ my partner did yellow rice ~ to die for and my son did onion bhajis which are so different from store bought. They are the same as the restaurant and a delicacy.Even though I have done this for a long time I still get impatient with the time it takes especially in beautiful weather because I want to be outside ~ in the UK summer sun is something to savour.
Hope your wavespell is bringing up lots of juicy stuff to work with ~ it can feel intense ~ and when we cut to the chase of it we can start to clear the wheat from the chaff . Everything is good learning for our journey and…..
If we want to feel good
live an inspired life
and break free from “woulds” and “shoulds” then it’s time for honesty and clear seeing.
Less is more sometimes 🙂
Love to you today and your shaping hands of the priestess energy. Lets open the doors and go through the valley of death to greet the Goddess.
