Reality and the Sunny Side

Am I seeing things or is that a giant fried egg on the bed? This New Sun is getting to me along with Neptune. I can't wait till Saturn gets there. maybe I'll see things clearly for a second......uhhhh.........then again......

Those curtains look like the theater curtains of the previous post. Bed as place of drama? And fried eggs? Because I have a young (age 12) gay friend in San Francisco who is into Project Runway, I rented the first season. It's quite addicting -- anyhow - the aspiring designers had to design a wedding dress for their model. One model wanted fried eggs on the hips of her dress. The designer got talked out of doing it, though only after he'd constructed a few out of fabric, but well, maybe as you suggest, fried eggs are like the sun. So important this time of year. Lots of it here today, by the way. Now I'm getting hungry.

Juju, leave it to you to come up with something unique and interesting. You are a true storyteller.

The egg on the bed certainly does make sense now that you mention it!

The sun is just beginning to rise permanently here. All Leos welcome!!

I just got a free tarot reading on the computer for the new year. I had the Empress as the first/self card, the Sun next to her in the position of challenges/opportunities, and the Star was the last card in the long term potential position. I don't know about these random computer things, but of course I always feel happy when when the sun turns up. Plus a lot of strong female energy -- the queen of wands was in there somewhere.

Going back to a previous post, I was in Bruges when I was 16 - left a strong impression on me of beauty and harmony -- not that one would want to live in such a place. I'm a creature of chaos, but am drawn to these ideal orderly images as a counterbalance, I think.

Are you dug out yet? Have enough to eat?

I'm out, and I have plenty to eat! And think that about covers our heavy snow quotient.

Amazing. A real live report from Bruges. It does look beautiful. Interesting about your like of chaos.

Those cards are fantastic. I especially love the Star. The night Kerry lost I pulled this card and knew that everything was right.

The night of the election was an incredibly deep and honest moment. People all across the country wept. Many said it reminded them of when their loved ones died.

When I pulled the Star card I knew it would take time but things would be set right.

In my deck, the Star is associated with Pandora's Box. When Pandora opened it and all the harm came out on the earth, the only thing left was hope.

I think now is the time for the hope with this last year of Pluto in Sagittarius and Jupiter heading for the conjunction. It's not necessary to qualify it with fear and the realism of those who won't experience the joy. There will be many. For those who want it, it can be held fully for a moment. Joy is like that.

I love the association of The Star with Pandora's box. I've never heard it before but its a beautiful conjunction. And of hope being left when all else is spilled out. I'm feeling hopeful. More serene than I've been in years. But also way more tired....

This is the way I've always done it. Because of my powerful Sagittarius conjunction dominating my life, I've had plenty of practice.
I have all the painful events everyone else does, but that never diminishes my faith and joy. Instead, it helps me endure what I consider to be the natural occurrences of any life on earth. I don't take the suffering personally as punishment or anything like that. Just events getting from here to there. And The Sag helps me immerse myself completely in the good moments. They keep coming, believe it or not.

Life is always uncomfortable but I don't buy the belief that it's mostly suffering. It's everything.

LOL. Sometimes I think tired is the best medicine. It helps stop the squirm.

I'm so glad, juju, that your spirits are up.

Leos are naturally buoyant, but the Saturn in Scorpio is suspicious and sees through everything. So when it's good, it's honestly so.

The Mythic Tarot by Liz Greene is the one I love. All the cards are connected to mythology and I find it exceptionally inspired.

I get a strong, full sensation with every card. The Star makes my heart leap. The Sun as well, the Chariot, and Strength, but most of all, the Star.

My most important card is the King of Wands. Probably my signature.

Juju. I was intrigued by your chaos comment. I am very very interested in how that fits with where you live now. When you get the time, let me know your insights.

I looked up the star in the mythic tarot -- it is a wonderful image. Maybe I should get that deck. I'd love to get into a discussion of chaos. And I've got to put myself to bed. So it will wait.
I love being up at night, but really am exhausted. I don't seem to know how quite to get the rest I need. I think I'd probably sleep best between the hours of 5am and 9am, but always seem to have to get up pretty early. I haven't really acquired the knack for catnaps and I don't really wake refreshed from sleep the way I used to. Maybe its age and those hoary hormones....Anyhow..goodnight... and thanks as usual for all the inspiration.

Good night, juju.
Catnaps are great! The skill can be learned. You'll need them in your old age. :-)

King of Wands for you, jm? That seems very fitting. Can you guess my card? :o)

Let me give this a modicum of thought. A sword popped in, but see what the others think.
