It’s been a bit on the gloomy side here lately since Christmas (we were totally ripped off from getting to see the only full moon on Christmas for the next 19 years – thanks to the heavy-duty air pollution we frequently get around here!).
So after a break in the rain we’ve been practically floating in for the past two days, I go outside and see a RAINBOW!!! Woo-Hoo!! So I whipped out my trusty phone, (noticed that the time was 12:33p when I turned it on to take these) and knocked out a few pics:
Ooo, aaah! Pretty, huh?
Then I noticed this bull…
After about a minute, I noticed that the bull had morphed into a dragon!
(kinda looks like the rainbow is either defining the side of its wings, or trying to lop off its tail :D)
Then I grabbed my laundry and headed off.
So that was yesterday. Afterwards, I grabbed my handy, dandy “Pocket Guide o Spirit Animals” by Dr. Steven Farmer and looked up what bulls and dragons meant (Looking up spirit animals is sorta, kinda like the Chinese Zodiac you see on placemats in restaurants, but a bit more in-depth. Instead of one static animal you’re associated with by way of birth year, all kinds of animals can pop up in dreams, nature, symbols, etc):
Among the highlights:
BULL – “…allow yourself to indulge in any creative projects you’ve been considering. Your life is headed for an upturn cycle, so welcome it and enjoy it. This is a very prosperous time for you…”
DRAGON – “Do more of the kinds of activities that bring passion into your life…You’re entering into a period of considerable prosperity. Spend some time regularly in meditation…and you’ll receive some valuable insights and inspiration…”
This is pretty interesting, considering that I recently have been mulling over trying to slog my way through several more years of college to get a 4-year degree (after the 21 years it’s taken me to get my 2-year!) Or seeing what kind of minimum-wage receptionist job I can get, or instead, focusing more on my writing (sci-fi/fantasy) and art (right now I’m into crystal, metal & resin sculptures aka “orgonite”) My husband is very supportive of being a patron for my art and thinks I should do that, but I was waffling between being “practical” and some mis-placed guilt over doing something I love that didn’t fit conventional definitions of being “productive” and wanting to do what I love. I couldn’t choose and was feeling very, very clogged up (pretty much like a backed up toilet – I had way too much garbage getting in the way of the flow :D)
The way things are going lately, it seems the universe is steering me down the ‘road less traveled’ and it’s shaping up to be one heckuva ride!
