Your Animal Spirit for Today
Loons mate for life, and their medicine is about loyalty, family, and deep caring for one another. If you’re experiencing a relationship fraught with power struggles, you are NOT practicing Loon medicine. If your relationship has BECOME a power struggle, Loon has appeared to remind you that this is a time of equal sharing and equal happiness. Something is amiss and Loon thinks you already know what it is.
Uruz is the Rune of harmony, order and inner strength. Often it marks endings and beginnings of periods in our lives. Uruz also symbolizes your ability to tackle new challenges by confronting them with the powers that lie within you. Opportunities probably abound for you right now.
Good Afternoon loyal readers! I hope you are all doing fine. I thought this would be a good time to tell you why I have been so scattered brained recently. I know I get so far in the postings and then quit, I am so, so sorry for this.
I believe the first thing to throw me for a loop was having shingles. Also I believe that was the time we had the tornadoes come through. Well let’s start with the shingles (lovely subject, lol!). The original patch of shingles that I had are cured or at least dominant for the time being. Now for the bad news, I have had a new batch crop up. Now you ought to see the doctors’ scratch their heads on this one. I was laying in the floor one night and got this awful pain in the top of my head. I placed my hand up there and gently rubbed and sure enough it was shingles. So they are watching all this mess on the top of my head. They want to make sure they don’t start pushing in on my brain. If that happens they will have to do something. Also the shingles have messed up one of my kidneys. Now this is according to my doctors. I believe it is dues to the harsh antibiotics they put me on was to blame. Ok, enough about me, you know I am still alive and scratching, lol!
Next up, storm damage……everyone was in the process of getting their lives back to some sort of order, then came the water. I honestly don’t know how many roads are closed out here by me. I was coming back from town yesterday and looked off to my right and you could see the Ohio River coming up through the cornfields. Everywhere is flooded, they are blowing natural levees in the hope this will relief some of the water pressure. I know you probably heard it on the news but one town in Illinois is covered in water. I believe we live about 75 miles away from them. They reported on the news that they were evacuating people from their homes in Cairo. You know after so much you wonder is it ever going to end? Where we live, I never dreamed I would look out across the fields and see the river coming up so. But I have no right to complain, my son emailed me a picture of his home today. There is water all around it. You have to come and go in a canoe. He said they had moved everything out, over the past weekend. He was ready for the river to take his home. He lives in the floor plain. He told me this morning there was no need to get upset because they know this was a possibly when they moved there. To me, my children have no value of money. We have busted our butts to get everything we have. If a flood was to take our home I would be sick. But I guess that is where the old generation gap comes into play, lol

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:
22: Grace and Beauty
Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011
In the arts, grace arises out of adherence to form: the dancer becoming the form of the dance, the musician giving life to the form of a musical score, the painter becoming one with the brush and canvas. In human affairs, grace is also aligned with form — with mastery of aesthetic and cultural patterns honed by time and honored by tradition. Through appreciation of graceful customs in human relationships we apprehend the pure beauty of the ideal, of life raised above the mere struggle for survival.
Possession of grace, like the bearing of a beautiful gift to a wedding, can add stature to those in humble positions. Take care to lend grace and dignity even to small happenings, while giving the weight of deep and careful consideration to matters of greater consequence. Though it should not be confused with true substance, an artistic flair can take one far in this world.
Your Daily Number: 2

About the Number 2
Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:
The High Priestess
This Tarot Deck: Cosmic
For the accused heretics who were burnt at the stake for revering her in the 14th and 15th century, she symbolized the prophecy of the return of the Holy Spirit, which was perceived as the female aspect of the Holy Trinity.
In the sequence of cards in the major arcana, the High Priestess appears as soon as the Fool decides he wants to develop his innate powers, making a move toward becoming a Magus. The High Priestess is his first teacher, representing the Inner Life and the method for contacting it, as well as the contemplative study of Nature and the Holy Mysteries.
It may appear as if you are at the top of your game today. Actually, you don’t even have to work very hard to amaze others with your finesse as you make your same old routine look like something totally new and different. But too much self-assuredness can lead you into trouble. Sloppy thinking or a hasty miscalculation could tempt you to take an unnecessary risk. Stick to the basics and save the fancy tricks for another day.
The pragmatic Taurus New Moon allows you to accomplish a lot, perhaps surpassing even your own expectations today. It’s great that you’re able to be so productive now, but it’s even more important that no one will be able to talk you out of your current ambitions. Your legendary bull-headed stubbornness enables you to overcome nearly any resistance, so set your goals high and then focus on reaching them.
The steady Taurus New Moon activates your 12th House of Fantasy now, increasing the tension between what’s real and what’s ideal. Thankfully, the practical Taurus energy gives you enough stability to transform an apparently unattainable dream into something that can actually take form. Don’t withdraw from the realm of unlimited possibilities because what manifests in the future begins in your imagination today.
Today’s sensible Taurus New Moon highlights your 11th House of Groups, making this a fine time to strengthen your social network. Opportunities to build enduring relationships at work and play are likely to come your way; however, it may be up to you to make the first move. Sharing your long-term goals can be a catalyst that shifts the dynamics from a casual acquaintance into a deep friendship. It might feel risky to take the initiative, but an amicable overture to the right person can continue to benefit you well into the future.
Today’s reliable Taurus New Moon falls in your 10th House of Status, making it easier to express yourself on the job. Although you’re able to explain a complicated recipe for success in very simple language, you may worry about your inability to execute your own strategy. Obviously, being an inspiring speaker now isn’t enough. Overcome your fear of failure and lead by example, so that others can more easily follow you.
The pragmatic Taurus New Moon reaffirms what you already know about success. Nevertheless, you may be overwhelmed by a large project unless you break it down into several subprojects and complete them one at a time. Avoid the temptation to make a mad dash to the finish line today, because it’s not as close as you might think. Fortunately, your drive for efficiency will help you shine, as long as you don’t attempt to do everything at once.
Libra is the sign of relationships, but today you crave more than just a pleasant interaction with someone. You need to sink beneath the attractive social veneers now or you could be left feeling unsatisfied. You know there is more to life and you want to experience it. But don’t act too obsessively or you might appear desperate. Intimacy is best when it develops naturally on its own.
The sensible Taurus New Moon activates your 7th House of Partners, influencing you to seek salvation from your complex life through an easygoing relationship. The persistence of Taurus offers the steadiness that you need, even if you are afraid of being limited by its simplicity. Ultimately, the choice is yours; the key to establishing an enduring relationship may hinge on your willingness to give up a little drama and overcome your fear of growing bored.
You have a lot of work to do now, and starting it right away means that you’ll be finished even sooner. Creating consistency is critical since the earthy Taurus New Moon activates your 6th House of Habits. Starting a new job now is easier than ever with so many planets in spontaneous Aries. However, turning your initial excitement into an ongoing discipline is the next step to assuring your success.
You may express yourself without a lot of forethought today, but you’ll still need to make a plan if you want to succeed. The Taurus New Moon in your 5th House of Creativity motivates you to take a chance, but you must follow through on what you start or your efforts will have been for naught. Trying something totally new can be a lot of fun; however, it’s crucial to come back to your senses and figure out how to accomplish what you set out to do in the first place.
Five planets moving about in your 3rd House of Immediate Environment suggests that those close to you may be quite supportive of your efforts now. Paradoxically, your lack of flexibility could make it difficult to integrate their good ideas into your overall plan. Don’t assume that your way is the only way; being open to the feedback you receive can make your work much less of a struggle.
The practical Taurus New Moon highlights your 3rd House of Communication, helping to ground the energy around you. Although the hectic pace may have settled down a bit, the noise isn’t completely gone. Nevertheless, it’s time to reflect on all that’s happened over the past month before taking a few deep breaths and moving on.
