My first unlisted comment for my new blog (star log) is that I can change the name “star mews” and I agree. The best thing about wordpress is that titles and names can be changed and adapted as needed. The name is a silly way to stake my claim, my claim to do this thing, this thing that I want to do and for which life keeps getting in the way.
Because this is an orphan project, a non-essential, playful thing it is often the first item of “to-do” that I dump when there are other pressing matters at hand. And in the case of my fractured arm a year ago the choice was taken away. As we go along our journey in life sometimes we just have to stop and say, now, here and now! This is where and when I want to do this.
When we find that place (inside or out) we often just stop-the-car and put a stick or post of some kind (flag-it) in the ground and say, this is where, or we take the napkin we scribbled on with us. One day maybe a castle springs up instead of a scribble or a guide post because we laid our claim and marked a spot -or maybe not. In feng shui practice it is always considered lucky to stake or lay your claim.
This impetuous blog was my attempt to bring attention to a very important day the world should give notice -but didn’t. Jupiter moved into the horse on June 11, 2012 bringing a new Earth year with it. That means lots of changes that I can see and would like to share. Though right now the eye of the world is focused elsewhere perhaps one day it will have meaning… at least I can conjecture.
For my lucky readers it may help to know that I generally speak in metaphorical lingo and have been known to change topics mid sentence. It’s the only thing I feel I can blame my extended family for and you all know who you are, its a female clan thing. Metaphors contain layers of meaning and coded symbols to provoke thoughts, to tease out a bigger message and to shift perspectives. This is my chosen method of communicating because I’ve experienced a rich, waking-dream life where metaphors speak. It is the language used in that dimension. To carry us into other worlds and alternate dimensions we need to speak that language.
Changing subjects… while true the word “mew” is the noise a cat makes it’s origin word, mue comes from Latin and means “to change” which seemed rather fitting on several levels. So to that end the lucky stars are always moving… and changing and that’s really what all this is about. I’m in the trenches doing the research for many decades now and modern astrological systems seem to rely heavily on so much outmoded dogma (as to me), like many religions do. I’m not dissing on astrologers or religion but there is so much room for improvements and new thinking that one could build a castle in the space provided.
Happy, Dark Horse year!!
Stars & Signs: with a progressive twist on an outlook for the new year ~
Rat – aka: Sagittarius, mouse, mongoose: Oppositions to the things you are planning can be overcome with a new strategy and a royal flush to the system. Super luck comes flying in when you send your calls to heaven. The bat is an auspicious omen for you, use it -don’t loose it. Newly forming structures are being developed for your long term gain. Pay your attention to them and they will reward you.
Ox – aka: Capricorn, bull, cow / planetary influence: Pluto: You are a power accelerator, par none. Ease up, let go of control, let your spirit guide you. You’ve got a good thing going that will outlast anything you may expect from it now. Break the dam and let the river flow. Don’t work too hard at anything or you’ll grind down the main point. Play (instead of work) at fulfilling life’s possibles.
Tiger – aka: Aquarius: You have high minded friends in great places so wear the crown of kinship. Don’t waste this potent period of opportunity, butter your bread all the way to the edge. You have the most dynamic luck of lifetime, right here and now so use the power wisely and kindly. Never glance, back stay focused ahead on the goal. Like lady liberty, you are freer than you know.
Hare – aka: Pisces, rabbit, cat, fish / planetary influence: Neptune, retrograde: Use of the magic trident that Neptune has given you will take some fine tuning to master. But just to have it handy brings a high harmonic to all your life’s work and activities. Hum and buzzz… whistle while you work. Get in and stay in the groove, one-two, buckle your shoe. Get a rhythm going and stick to it come hell or high water.
Dragon – aka: Aries / planetary influence: Uranus: You my dragon friend are hosting the daily activities as the prime mood-setter and generation blender. You can bend trends and twist circles around the best of us. Name that plate and put the cherished silver in it’s place before you relax and let the doves fly. Luck can be like good risotto, on a low heat you need consistency, you have to stir the pot. Use your sacred, scepter.
Snake – aka: Taurus, serpent, bull: Don’t tread on me is the best mantra for my serpent friends right now with others making a footpath of your best laid plans. Mark your territory clearly. No matter what though, you get an extra lucky break with those snake eyes that mesmerize… bat your lashes and stop interlopers in their tracks. Or coil up and make nice while you wait for a chance to strike out in a new direction.
Horse – aka: Gemini, twins / planetary influence: Jupiter and Venus retrograde: The latest tome for your light summer readings is How-to-be in Two Places at Once. You are here and you are not here which means you are elsewhere. I’d look at both sides equally (with one eye at a time) and not try to draw any conclusions yet or make things fit. Wait until the chickens come home to roost and everything will make sense of itself.
Goat – aka: Cancer, sheep, deer: Out of some pretty fierce challenges you have stood your test over time and managed to harvest a golden nugget of opportunity. It may hardly be perceptible or visible to others yet, but you can already fit the peg in the slot. You can expect much in due course with less effort. Naturally it looks easy when you do it, that’s why all eyes are on you. Set aside the petty and stay out of the fray, entirely. Use reverse gear.
Monkey – aka: Leo, lion: Cooking up a storm is what you do better than, best and laying waste to the want not’s (that can’t make-up their mind about anything) is what will serve you most. Its okay to sever ties, cut the mooring of old bonds and bury the bones. A new day is dawning. Magic is in the making… All things are working together for your greater good when you let them.
Bird – aka: Virgo, phoenix, rooster / planetary influence Mars: The heat is on full blast in the smoke house and the drying process is fast acting. Don’t dally and wear x-ray goggles so as not to be deceived until the coast is cleared. Careful not to get your feathers singed by the blow back of emotional outbursts around you. Take the high ground. Flare-ups will subside over time.
Dog – aka: Libra, lion, scales / planetary influence: Saturn retrograde: You are not on the hot seat but the cat has got a singing canary so don’t pull any punches. The tide will ebb after it overflows. Place your bets – don’t hedge them and keep the wheel spinning. Stay tuned and well aware of a picture you hold dear, your salad days are near.
Pig – aka: Scorpio, boar, eagle: Fashionable resources are in short, short supply. Some higher salvation is needed to rebirth genes as a wardrobe staple again. Super natural powers for good are simmering and shimmering on the surface of a new brand of world. A world where sleek wardrobes will be uniform. To be sure you will fit in, stay slim and trim. Never say never, just say maybe and let the games begin.
