Greylag Goose

Well the calendar has turned and half of the year has passed.  Wow, time moves along pretty quickly.  I have drawn a significator card for the second half of year.  The Greylag Goose.  Interesting as today is a National Holiday for Canada.  Goose - Canada.  Some kind of coincidence or correlation maybe?

Recently the canadian geese in the area of been out and about with their hatchlings.  There is a group of them on the college campus nearby.  I am always enchanted with new babies and sadden when I see the decline or disappearance of the them as the weeks go by; we also have a fairly large contingent of coyotes in the area. That is the way of things.
I wonder what these geese have come along to tell me.

  1. Love those little fluffly baby geese and also the fierce protectiveness of their mother. I have this oracle too and although I don't use it very often I do love it :)

    1. Here the snapping turtles and herons get many of our goslings.
      I think that migration symbolism would be beneficial to remember; it's not always wise to stay in one place, especially mentally.

    3. I found this deck at a used book store. I don't use it much either but it called to me this morning. Parents of the gosling are very aggressive and protective.

    4. The University campus also has a really big pond so the turtles might get some of those babies too. And thanks Bev for the migration prompt. I am stuck in a murky place and need to move along.

  2. as my brain cells fall off with no renewal, I find myself staying in one place mentally because I worry I won't be safe or will fail in another area. It is an awful place to be but the alternative coffin isn't fetching either. (((gosling Carolyn))

    1. I too am familiar with those places. It is becoming more difficult for me to show homes because of unfamiliar terrains. Soon stairs will be too much. Then I guess I will migrate to something else.
