Winter Plans and Busy Work

Written during a waxing moon in the sign of Aquarius on a day ruled by Mercury.

The sun is out today and the sky is blue.  This is always welcomed in late January.  I was thinking about a visit to the shore today, but I don't like to go to these out of the away places alone and The Bard is busy with work, so it looks like I will not be able to take advantage of the sun, but maybe tomorrow.  

I spent part of the the morning "window shopping" online, looking at collections of tarot cards.  I usually acquire a new deck at this time of year, mostly because it is around the time of my birthday, but also because this part of the year is the going within time, a time for solitude and reflection and then, often, some cleaning house, both literally and spiritually. 

I completely missed the dark moon.  One of the things I am going to do is become more organized about these kinds of things.   I also want to do regular siritual cleaning of the house, not just when we start having nightmares or hear strange noises.  And this week I plan to bottle some oils.  I will bottle them in smallish bottles and put some vitamin D oil in to preserve them.  I used larger bottles before and recently I had to dispose of most of them which seems like a waste.  I am considering posting this part of the craft here.  I know most of my faithful readers are well aware of the how to and the whys of this stuff, but there are a lot of people new to this kind of thing who might benefit.

I am trying not to obsess about the news.  The world is frightening, but I have to reduce my worry so if I have to remain slightly oblivious for a bit,  so be it. 

This anxiety is likely a little bit age related and a lot flu related.  I am pretty sure it will pass.  I am reminding myself regularly that thoughts are things.....

Well, that's the update for today.  More interesting posts surely to follow.
