After celebrating the moon in Cancer by spending most of the morning in the kitchen, working and thinking, a number of thoughts percolated to the surface. One had to do with the idea that when we’re doing simple repetitive tasks with our hands, it often slows down the fore mind and allows for a more meditative state where what’s been brewing underneath can float up. Spinning is ideal for this but running cooked roma tomatoes through a press is too, as is washing dishes . . . Cancer Moon thought: I use whole spices as much as possible since they hold their flavor much better than pre-ground ones do. Fresh grated nutmeg is one of life’s little pleasures.
My friend that we did one of our amazing group analyses for has not written back. She may have called but I have chosen not to take calls from people who won’t leave messages (we don’t have caller id, so in order to find out who called, I use “star” 69). I spend so much time at work on the darn phone that the last thing I want to do when I’m home, is talk on the phone!! Besides, a phone conversation leaves no traces – when we write as we must for posting comments & emails, we leave a record that can be referred back to. This makes for clarity of intent since one can go back & say this is EXACTLY what you said . . . . My Pisces/Gemini boss prefers to use the phone – and I prefer to use emails or fax to transact business. It may be the combination of Mercury in Scorp on the ASC & the Virgo MC that insist on clarity in communications but I do insist! As to my friend, I really want her to sit down & write out her thoughts in an email. From first hand experience, I’ve found this to be very helpful in figuring out what’s going on in my head & heart. BTW, jm said something to the effect of not wanting to post negative stuff (she said it much better than that. . .) and after I started writing a “grumble” post, got part way through and realized that was all I needed to do – just write it down -that’s why keeping journals has always been recommended as part of self-discovery/therapy.
Another thought that comes to me over & over, is what an amazing resource the Internet is for the finding and sharing of information. Our little community has added connections to so many other wonderful sites, such as Lynn Hayes’s Astrodynamics. I really recommend stopping over to read her blog regularly as she posts prolifically and on many different subjects plus her list of links to really fun to follow up on!! Jm & I are both there along with Pat’s Pisces Chronicles . . . . ‘cheeky grin’!!! I followed another link to a very new blog that has some possibilities too. It’s called karmicknowledge.com and she reads palms too. She made a comment that caught my attention; she said she started blogging to stop the chattering in her brain! I wonder if she had NN in Gemini . . . she did say she has genius lines on her pinky fingers which I do too, heh heh.
There is lots more out there to explore, and I hope to continue following up interesting leads and hopefully find some tidbit to share!
