Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering. Saint Augustine
It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe. Muhammad Ali
Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything – even mountains, rivers, plants and trees – should be your teacher. Morihei Ueshiba
Along the tops of the mountain, the stream flows down passing through clouds, trees, blue sky, stars, the natural energies of life that create inner peace. Often times we see the mountains as high obstacles, a course we have to master, to manage to conquer rather than the beauty the mountain can become in our lives. Each portion of the mountain, each energies that flows as we travel to clear the path, clear the way, create more obstacles as we beat the brush, sending the snakes, the hedgehog out into the open. Each totem brings messages to help us learn on the path. Mountains that appear in our path are beautiful. Bringing obstacles that we overcome, we gain in faith, in confidence. As we bring each obstacle, each issue, each problem out in the open, we hear the messages we are meant to hear, so that we move into our dreams with newer, clearer eyes full of the beauty.
Animal totems: Hedgehog: sister hedgehog has quills. She tends to lick and bite new scents around her, then anoints her quills with a scented foam to poison or infect her quills. This protects her from predators around her. Her totem reminds us to see the mountain coming to us as protection rather than a problem. Her medicine shares to try to gentle our way through obstacles rather than be sharp-tongued.
Lady Moon is waning Gibbous . Her illumination is 95%, she sits in Leo having entered it yesterday the 13th at 12:07 pm est. Leo the Lion, brings strength to our moon in our charts. Today is a power day if our sun sign is Leo. The stone carnelian is a smooth hard stone of calming, balancing, drawing strength when carrying this stone.
I am here my usual hours today. May the fairies dance around each of us today. Love ya, Me, Cherokee, Frankiecapone, Sugar, Apache, Apollo, T
