Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? ‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells Pumping in my living room. Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high, Still I’ll rise. – maya Angelou
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. Confucius
Outside the window, looking out, butterflies fill my lawn. As we watch a sea of butterflies rise up from the vervana plant, the marigolds, the honeysuckles as if in one accord. Here is a yellow monarch, yet another the black beauty flits up almost in our faces. From the morning glories on the rails, a blue/green small flies. The amazing scenario was from the Tigerlilies, a flock of rainbows, flew straight up into the heavens. As I watched this beautiful scene, we realized the gods are reminding me that no matter what crisis we’re dealing with today, we will rise. Confident, strong, knowing that the Great Spirit has our back, we have power. Power within, power without, there is great power, so we will rise. There is a hope. There is a faith. There is a strength, when we realize that yesterday’s reality is not today’s and today’s is not tomorrows. Thank the gods, we will see that as Phoenix, from the ashes of our troubles, we will rise.
Animal totems: Armadillo: Bro armadillo curls up into a ball, much like Sister hedgehog yesterday. His hard shell protects his softness inside. His totem reminds us that we sometimes protect ourselves more than we should, creating a wall that the positive good blessings find hard to get through. His medicine reminds us of our strength, our power, although we may feel small, insignificant, ugly, we still will rise with strength.
Lady Moon is still at Full Moon strength. She remains in Pisces today, while Mars goes direct from his retrograde at 10:05 am est. In ancient China, the keeping of crickets, and/or ladybugs in small gold cages, was done as these totems were thought to bring blessings to the house or home. Even to these days, we shoo a cricket out to make sure not to bring negativity into our home, and we love to see the ladybugs on our sleeve!!
