A Thought for Today

I saw this in a group I am in on Facebook today. My first thought was, “This is an excellent question.” Than, “We are again being sterotyped.” May it should not have ruffled my feathers but it did. Up until about 14 years ago i still went primitive tent camping and never once did I cook in a cauldron. Close as I cam to it was a 3-legged cast iron Dutch oven.

I would love to hear what your thought or reaction is to this cartoon.

Ogham

From LearnReligions.com – Celtic Ogham

Amhancholl

Ae (sometimes represented as X or Xi), is Amhancholl or Eamhancholl, associated with Witch Hazel. This natural astringent is purifying and cleansing. The word Eamhancholl literally translates to “twin of Hazel”, so there is a strong connection to C–Coll in the Ogham. When Amhancholl appears, it’s usually an indicator that cleansing and purification is necessary or has taken place.

From a purely medicinal standpoint, Witch Hazel has long been used as a cleanser and astringent. Native American tribes turned it into a poultice which was used to treat swelling and tumors. Amongst the early settlers, midwives arriving in the New World found that it could be used to prevent sepsis following childbirth or an abortion. Today, it’s still in use as a treatment for skin inflammations, such as insect bites, mild burns, and even hemorrhoids.

Amhancholl Correspondences

Mundane Aspects: When this symbol appears, it means it’s time for a cleansing. Sometimes this is a physical cleansing of our Self, but often it applies to emotional clutter and baggage. Smudge your home, get rid of all the negative energies around you, and allow yourself to purify both your body and your mind.

Magical Aspects: This is a good indicator that you need to do a re-evaluation of your spiritual life. Are you studying things that no longer interest you? Are you hanging on to books or other magical items that you know you’ll never need–or worse, that you really dislike? If you’re feeling stagnant, or that you’re drifting a bit on a spiritual level, when this symbol appears it probably means you need to rethink your priorities. What are your spiritual goals? Do a cleansing ritual, and help yourself begin anew.

Hexagram Fifty- Two/52

Kên / The Mountain

Above this Mountain’s summit another more majestic rises:
The Superior Person is mindful to keep his thoughts in the here and now.

Stilling the sensations of the Ego, he roams his courtyard without moving a muscle, unencumbered by the fears and desires of his fellows.
This is no mistake.

SITUATION ANALYSIS:

There is a higher vantage point available to you, but it is obscured by the visible peak of personal ambition.
To climb to this higher plane, you must shake off the desires and fears of the conscious, visible world around you.
To make this journey you must quiet the Ego, empty your mind of past and future, and dwell totally in the moment at hand.
Thorough mindfulness of what is before you is the only tranquility.
Be. Here. Now.

Wolf’s Cave Nebula

Image Credit & Copyright: Gianni Lacroce

Explanation: The mysterious blue reflection nebula found in catalogs as VdB 152 or Ced 201 really is very faint. It lies at the tip of the long dark nebula Barnard 175 in a dusty complex that has also been called Wolf’s Cave. At the center of this deep telescopic view, the cosmic apparitions are nearly 1,400 light-years away along the northern Milky Way in the royal constellation Cepheus. Interstellar dust in the region blocks light from background stars and scatters light from the embedded bright star, giving the end nebula its characteristic blue color. Though stars do form in molecular clouds, this star seems to have only accidentally wandered into the area, as its measured velocity through space is very different from the cloud’s velocity. At the image bottom is the planetary nebula Dengel-Hartl 5, while red glowing gas from an ancient supernova remnant is also visible along the image’s right side.

A Laugh for Today – What We Woke Up To

A 180-degree view of where we live

My inner child is singing, “I want to build a snowman and make snow angels!”

I am so energized as always with the first snowfall, especially when we do not have to drive on the roads with idiot drivers. Anyone who has to go out today please be extra careful walking and driving. I swear just about everyone forgets from one snow season to the next how to drive in it. But we are blessed to have enough groceries, food for the fur kids, and a nice warm home to spend this day in. Now to just quit looking out the window as the snowflakes fall gently to cover Mother Earth in her first beautiful white blanket, I can get posting done.

My inner child chimes in again, “I want to build a snowman, make snow angels, and drink hot chocolate with chocolate flavored marshmallows!!!!! GO OUTSIDE TO PLAY, FORGET ABOUT NASTY GROWN UP STUFF”

☃️HAPPY 1ST SNOW ILLINONAINS!!! ☃️
