The Owl Speaks

The owl has been screeching outside at night. He’s a resident of the neighborhood and doesn’t live too far away. I hear him outside on occasion, though he’s been making his presence known more often as of late.

I’d assumed that perhaps this was because he’s been busy hunting, apparently  that was wrong as I’ve been told by a few that owl only speaks when he has something to say.

So, what is he saying?

Noon suggested that I ask the cards, so I did.

Owl was removed from the deck, though I’m not certain if I needed to do this or simply remember what it is that the card symbolizes.

Owl: Omens (A topic I’ve brought up a few times recently)  Owl says Pay attention to the signs.


with owl removed from the deck, I decided to read. I can’t explain why, only that I drew 8 cards this time.


Lynx-Discernment: Look Beyond immediate appearances.

Wolf-Guardian: You are safe and protected at all times

Kangaroo (r)-Gratitude: Be grateful for all you are blessed with (Mental slip up, be careful with what you have. -interesting)

Lion (r)- courage: Ask for what you want. (I’m distinctly  picking up the time for asking is over.)

Beaver (r)- Productiveness: Go ahead and just do it.

Bear-Boundaries: Stand your ground.

Seal (r)-imagination: Immerse yourself in artistic and creative expression

Turtle- Retreat: Stop Trying to make something happen.


(now either I have one too many cards on the table. Or perhaps I’m missing one, as I don’t see how they all tie together right now. Which either means drop the last one possibly, or draw another. )


Random card draw:

Koala-Empathy: Speak less and listen more.


So, I’m at a loss for the moment, Wondering to see if anyone else has anything helpful or even unhelpful to add.

Asking Questions

I asked a question last night on PM. I wanted to know if there was anyone who was a friend of the page who happened to either be an ex JW or if they knew anyone who was a JW who would be willing to answer a few questions for me. Within minutes of posting there was a smart assed response to the status that if I just waited at the front door, one would be along shortly to convert me.  Continue reading »

Letting Go

How does one know if she has forgiven? You tend to feel sorrow over the circumstance instead of rage, you tend to feel sorry for the person rather than angry with him. You tend to have nothing left to say about it all.
– Clarissa Pinkola Estes

It’s been a rather long couple of days, and I suppose the situation has me feeling a little more introspective than usual. I don’t like to put a whole lot of thought into how I’m feeling at any given moment. If you have to think about it, it usually means that something’s not right. I’m not what anyone could consider or label a ‘Touchy Feely’ kind of person, and I’m definitely not a ‘Suzy Fucking Sunshine’ type of person either. Yeah, I’m one of those people who others want to tell to smile. Continue reading »

Ethical Eating?

This week ‘Pagan Blog Prompts’ question was: “Ethical Eating; How does your faith guide you in how you buy and eat food? Do your beliefs even have anything to do with how you eat?”

Now it got me to thinking about the topic, and I don’t think that many people actually spend any considerable amount of time thinking about this subject, unless they’ve made a conscious decision to be vegetarian or vegan, etc. I know that it’s not a topic that I don’t give much thought.
