Irony

Irony Today, I prayed with a praying mantis. I walked outside to my “spot” and there he sat. So, I sat next to him and in our silence and in our solitude we found our connection to the universe. Oddly, we were separate entities living in completely different realities but in that moment we were balanced in both the same place yet..not. When the time I was allowed in the “spot” concluded, I glanced at him. My movement, I’m assuming, caused him to stir a bit and he turned his funny shaped head toward me. For a moment, we just looked at each other. I took three very deep breaths and I’m not sure if he mimicked this or if the breeze just lifted his body enough to make it appear that way. Last night, I went to my son’s football game. On my right I see my mother. Let it be known, I haven’t spoken to my mother in a very long time. We are not able to have a relationship at this time. This is the first game she has came to this year. And it only occurred after my son told me, “She is afraid you will beat her up if she comes.” I told him, “If I wanted to beat her up, I would have done so already and would not need her presence at your game to do so. Her not being involved in your life only makes me think less of her..as a matter of fact. I love you. And there is not a level of danger..perceived or real..that would keep me from your life in any shape or form.” I watched as my ex-husband walked behind me and went to sit with my mother. They seemed very amicable. Laughing. Smiling. At that moment, I felt completely alone in the world and was wrestling with myself. It was as if I was holding my ego in one hand and my heart in the other and my currently maturing “good sense” was staring me right in the face with her hands on her hips. Right then, I heard, “SERENITY! SERENITY! Don’t you run away from me! Get back over here!” I looked up to see a mother desparately calling for her child. Her name was Serenity. I had to laugh. And, I thought to myself, “Yes Serenity, don’t you run away from me.” Seconds later, I felt arms encircle my waist and that feeling of aloneness was gone. There was my ground. My husband. And, serenity returned. Irony. Do you feel it’s presence in your life? I, most certainly, do.

The world today--concludes

I'm finished with my little "world today" experiment. It was fun! And I did learn quite a bit about myself versus the collective. I would recommend anyone with Pisces or a strong Neptune signature in their chart doing something similar. Quite cool. Not sure what you will find here from here out. We shall see :)

The World Today 9-14-11

Got a theory? Trying to organize it all in your head and script what you want to say? Thinking of spreading some news or sharing your thoughts on a subject? Maybe you are just all caught up in the mental. Maybe you are over analyzing thinking you have it all figured out. Sometimes too many details can cloud the basics. How about you come out of your head for a minute? How about you introspect and ask that inner child of yours what they think. Take away all the bitterness, the unspoken word, and really feel what it is the innocence of that child is telling you. How does he/she feel? The answer is right out there in the open but you might be missing it by giving too much consideration to the minor details. What is real? You are gonna see it because it’s going to be brought into the light whether you want it to be or not. And it could be your most beautiful dream or your worst nightmare. You will have to be the judge of that.

For your Neptune in Aquarius

The World Today 9-13-11

Feel like you are carrying more than you can bear? You’ve worked hard at something you were passionate about but now it’s all about the work and not about the fun. That sucks. Mentally you may feel overloaded and you might need to delegate, take a break, breathe..already. While you’ve got all that weight on your shoulders, take a look out on the horizon. See what you have accomplished. Know that your ship is coming. Remember why you started this. A lucky break is likely to come your way with an attitude like that. Imagine if the people you need to impress see you SMILING under all this weight! What if they see that you are not just trudging but still happy to be doing what you are doing and still doing it well even during the tough times. Hang in there, the skies should clear up today. The confusion, moodiness and fog from the weekend will dissipate and we are headed into some very active and fun times. Buckle your seat belt 

The World Today 9-9-11

I don't know about you but I got up 3 hours ago and people have continually struck my "piss me off "nerve dead on ever since. Anyway, the message today is you may find yourself trying to mix oil and water. As you might know this isn't going to happen easily. Oil and water never really mix or dissolve into eachother. But, they are not reactive either. Put them in a bottle and shake them up and they mix without mixing into an emulsion. Let it sit and the two elements separate. Say you wnat to mix business with pleasure. Good luck. Say you want to mix your desire to have a family with being celibate..nada. See? It's suggested that you stand up for what you believe in but do this on a mental plane. That means KNOW what you believe in. Pick your battles. Don't argue with brainless rocks. (This is actually hard for me..do go into a mental fight with an unarmed person.--Let..it..be) But, become determined NOT to be what it is you are seeing as so vulgar, stupid, or down right "pain in the assness" from the other. Chances are you hate that outfit on them so much because a part of you has a tendency to be that way or could be that way. You can harness your internal passion by taking action upon yourself. Leave the stupidity to the masses..may they drown in it.

The world today 9-7-11

Sometimes I get fed up with routine. That typically goes one of two ways. I’ll either hang in there and look for the solid reason as to why I’m so dissatisfied and then do something to change it up productively. Or, I completely go right off the hook and do something disruptive, self-destructive, and unpredictable. The first option doesn’t lead to a dramatic display but rather gives me a subtle enough change to find a little break in an otherwise discontent day. The second can lead to unnecessary fights, hangovers, wrecked vehicles..all that fun stuff. In my teen years this was paramount. It was my thoughts that by doing these disruptive things I was in control of my life. “Oh yea…you want me to go to school today? Screw you, I’m talking a bum into buying me a fifth of Jack and I’ll see you MAYBE tomorrow.” LOL..now, who really got hurt in that instance? I could have went to school and did something different when I was there to break things up. Even now, as I’m older, this is something I battle with. You have a choice. Impulse or insight. Insight will serve you greater. It does feel like a type of surrender. But I’ll tell you right now, it does absolutely no good to try to start a sword fight with ghosts or argue with werewolves. Let it go. See where your introspection leads you.

The World Today 9-6-11

Sorry, no World Today report. I'm focused on work and more earthly matters, trying to gain some internal rewards so that I may sit back and enjoy the fruition of my goals. (oh wait, that is the world today :) )

The World Today 9-2-11

Ideas fly like rapid fire today. Minds are active and going full force in several directions. Be careful not to lose control of it. You should still be mindful of your words and it’s never good to spread gossip or use such ingenious opportunity for ill service toward other people. Be mature. (Ha! Taking note of that myself). It’s a good day for being social if you can find the light heartedness in this and take everything toward humor instead of irritation. Look out for the person who knows no consequence for their words. Protect your computer. Anti-virus update, anyone? When my mind is on “pop rocks” I have a tendency to be a bit impatient. That tendency will be there today, I’m sure. But, avoid taking on too much at once and becoming overwhelmed. Step back. Ground and move forward. Harness that mental energy. After all, there are goals to be met. You have a chance to embrace the social or disconnect from it. Impatience leads to disconnect and irritability. For me, that leads to escape..such as full on intoxicated just to get a release. The reverse leads to the embrace which is less likely to have such a severe hangover.

Autumn 2

Autumn

The World Today 9-1-11

Have you ever seen the Titanic? I know you have. The part where the boat finally sinks and everyone who was left on it is now plunged into the ocean. At that point..who did they have to rely on? Ask Jack..nobody. At a point like that, survival comes only up to you.

Now, lets say you are in that ocean with no support..what should you do?
You could panic. You could flail around and try to swim to that unforeseeable shore. You could scream for help out into the nothingness. But, what are all those things going to do for you?

They are going to drain your energy..that’s what they are going to do. You are not going to last very long before you become exhausted. The best thing to do is conserve your energy and float. As long as you can..float. Right Rose? That’s how she survived. (that and she was able to overcome hypothermia..and she kept her thoughts on survival..and sang her way through—transcended it, if you will).

Pick your battles today because you are going to feel like you are out there all on your own without support. But if you are in an ocean..the water is supporting you by allowing you to float, isn’t it?

In the end, you’ll see where your true support is. Those steadfast things that never left you in the first place that you just take for granted will always be there..therefore not really giving them the credit they deserve. And who knows, maybe you might overcome a little of that pride and actually ask for help. Either way, you’ll know who and what really supports you.
