Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts. Charles Dickens
Never do anything when you are in a temper, for you will do everything wrong. Baltasar Gracian
One should not lose one’s temper unless one is certain of getting more and more angry to the end. William Butler Yeats
“and another thing… “ We notice that as we get angry at life, at people, at situations, the more we play the events out in our head, the madder we get until we feel as if we are the Mad Hatter in Lewis Carroll’s ( his real name was Charles Doudson) Alice in Wonderland. We get scattered. We get confused. The irritation we feel sometimes can overwhelm us, leaving us wondering who we have become. We know we want to say something, do something, but as usual when we react in anger, fear, or impulse we will do the wrong thing. Sitting to plan what we are going to say, to do, only leaves us overthinking, over playing the entire situation. We are mad at him/her. We are mad at the world. More importantly we are mad at ourselves, unable to forgive ourselves for being so stupid, so trusting, so caring about someone else we let ourselves get duped, get roped into a situation. We let someone else run us off in a ditch then leaving us stranded to get out of the ditch by ourselves. Don’t despair. Stop, think, edit our words, rethink, edit again, perhaps the answer lies in silence. The answer is back to our altar, our Most High. The answer is sit in meditation, in repose, in reflection. Giving up, quitting, our choice lies in one more foot in front of the other moving forward again. Take a minute or two or three! Lol to take deep breaths, then move forward again.
Animal totems: Bull: Bro Bull ( as bull is always male) is the symbol of power, of temper. His totem reminds us how quickly a very passive powerful totem can be standing still, chewing grass to snorting, hammering the ground, a total complete change. His medicine reminds us that we often feel as if we can go off this way, changing moods completely stunning others around us. His totem reminds us to tread carefully so we keep people we want in our lives, in our lives.
Lady Moon is starting the New Moon, the dark moon, the void moon, at 9:25 pm Est time tonight. She is at 0% illumination. This is an excellent moon, where both worlds, the Spiritual world, and the Earthly plane doors are wide open. She is in Cancer, as well as our 4th house of Possessions is in Cancer. A thing I read today, in the almanac, it that is is considered “ unlucky” to wear a garment while one is mending it. Interesting . The stone today is the adventurine. This is a semi-precious stone, green in color most times although varients can be seen. This stone is thought to have centering, balancing properties so carry if one thinks we are going to go off on someone.!
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 and the sweet spirit of Bob and Bets.
