Suspect suspense

Things left hanging in the balance, I am not fond of this.  This depiction of Justice is not right.  She holds the Scales of Balance in her right hand, untypical, and she is adding her support to the one side of the scale.  She has laid down her sword of truth and is prepared to advise based on her opinions and her truth.  But I guess we all
do this, decide a thing or course of action based on our own truths. 
I must trust my own intuition and not seek out answers from others.

Duality

Duality or a bit of bi-polarism. I have been accused of being bi-polar in the past. I have trigger points that set me off.  I now understand them more as I have aged and worked on them.  Occasionally though, fear can take hold.  Given a choice today I will choose from the heart and not the mind.

Carp diem

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may" from poem by Robert Herrick
I quoted this same expression several weeks back and have heard the expression in my head several times in the last few weeks.  Coincidence?  Coincidence is a way the Universe tries to get our attention.  Summer is coming to a close.  Another week and a few days marks the Autumnal Equinox.  What thing(s) do i need to attend to before the winter winds blow?  What change is in the air?
What new venture do I harken to?

Platitude

"Speak softly and carry a big stick." - Theodore Roosevelt.

Anymore it is carry a 'selfie-stick'
This Four of Pentacles has nothing to say to me today.  So like the Rider Waite-Smith version, I will just sit quietly and hold on to my own for the day.

Review

It always fascinates me when I draw the same card days in a row. The Five of Wands showed again today so I followed up with the next card on deck.  Craters on the Moon. Interesting. All those impacts on the Moon and the Moon continues. With no atmosphere or water on the Moon those crater impacts show billions of years of activity of the cosmos.  Kind of makes my day to day skirmishes insignificant.

Unseriously

We can be our own best friend or our own worst enemy.  Fives all seem to be a fulcrum point, where we can tip the balance this way or that.  I can view day to day skirmishes as just little blips and not make them any more that they are.
No more mountain out of molehills.
Do it or just don't do it.
Sticks and stones.
If our mouths are full of food we cannot talk and if our minds are full of discontent we cannot reason properly.

Delusion

Mentally we can fill up all those cups with This n That.  Are the things we fill those mental cups with - fantasy or delusional?  No, just storage vessels for bits of information, feelings, hopes, joy, dreams, grudges, disappointments, regrets. Until we actually connect with the cup and bring it into reality, they are just our random feelings and perceptions

Ready or Not

The hour of discontent.  We know when something isn't right.  Still when the strike comes it hurts and bewilders.  Can we move beyond it, yes.  In fact we must.  The thing is finding that first step.  One foot in front of the other, we warily lift the foot and a singular moment that has us holding our breath, place it down, ready to begin our new steps and move beyond the loss, betrayal.  Ready or not.

Providential

I met a knight in shining armor yesterday.  He had really bright red hair, wore jeans, and only twenty-one.  Still, he helped this would-be damsel in distress.  Getting ready to turn into area complex for work, my car signaled a low tire. Turning at the light, it went flat.  I pulled into the corner quick-mart and there was a young man with his business truck that did tires and hauling. Providential.  He was there because I needed him and the Universe opened a door and gave me a 'wink'
We talked while he worked and we both have nerve damage, his congenital, mine, tornado.  The thing is, there was something?  As I was walking up to the little store, I felt compelled to turn and wave goodbye. We have met before, but not in this time line.  Me sixty one, he twenty one and lives about forty miles across the river.  Thank you is what I have to say, until we meet again.

Recognition

Giving credit for when credit is due. 

My word for today is Focus.  I did not know it was going to be "a word day".  Focus was the theme in my daily inspirational and the King of Wand reminds me to focus.  Intent and the focus of fire's  creativity got this king to this point.  Sometimes you have to recognize that someone else might be able to do something different and maybe better than yourself.  That's okay, leads to diversity, another good word.

Sing me a song

When I was a younger girl I would help my Dad plant our vegetable garden. Well all the the kids in the family did, but I think I was the only one who really enjoyed it.  I don't get out and do much now, in fact I just put a few pots out every year.  One thing I still do is talk to my my flowers and sing little ditties to them and I believe they respond.  Today's suggestion in my book of daily reflections suggests to sing to ourselves. To sing and encourage growth and love and healing within.  My immediate go to song is "On a Clear Day" which inspires me with joy, happiness, and hope.  And like the rainbow in the backdrop, the promise of a clear day.

"Labor" Day

Labor Day, the unofficial end point of Summer.  The days are quickly getting shorter as the Sun resists the horizon a bit more each morning and retreats sooner each evening.  I remember this day as an all out play day since school started the day after Labor Day when I was a young lass. It is going to be another 90° day here, a bit warm to play.  Still there is a grilled burger later today and a few card games, so all in all, a good day off.  Then anticipation for cooler days ahead.
Bright Blessings

The only constant

Letting go of the last of my resistance. 
Yesterday I was talking with one of my sisters, the one that still smokes.  She said she was ready to try again. When I quit it was one the most difficult things I have done.  I tried many times before I managed to give them up.  Now, many years later, the struggle doesn't seem like it was that hard, the struggle softened by time. 
Letting go of something or someone whose time has passed is troubling, but once we can get beyond it or them, the change will do me/us good.
Change is in the air.
