Contrary Rabbit? Get in your burrow!

Today's Animal Medicine card pulled was Rabbit in the contrary position and 'tis apropos I suppose. Rabbit totem signifies fear and maybe a little unwarranted paranoia. Rabbit in the contrary position let's you know you're right to be hiding out from the energy vampires. Don't let anyone steal your power. Someone pushing your buttons? Brush them off. Paralyzed with indecision? I know that one, just sit a minute and do nothing. You'll get a clear message soon enough. It's time to wait. Nurture yourself. Re-evaluate.

"Simply put, you cannot have your influence felt until you rearrange your way of seeing the present set of circumstances. There is always a way out of any situation, because the Universal force will move on."----is the interpretation from Sams and Carson

For me, it is high time to stop trying to move mountains. Sell. Flip. Renovate. Market. Rent. Change. Worry. About this property. I hate moving. Am absolutely not in the mood to do it right now. Yes, I wish I had a teeny cottage with no upkeep in my fantasy real estate daydream, but it will cost to live anywhere. It will be work to live in anything. There are dozens of reasons to stay put and dozens more why I can't find a proper agent or buyer. So my lesson? Do something ELSE. So I am. And we shall see.

If something's not working for you right now, just walk away and put your attention elsewhere. Maybe you're trying to force a relationship that just isn't fruitful. Or trying a hobby or sport that really is cramping your flow. There is no failure really. Just re-organizing your thoughts.

You want it or not?

I've been married since 2005. To a house.

It was love at first sight but over the years it has soured into an awkward arranged marriage. Turns out, a relationship of this magnitude was more difficult than I imagined and it also turned out that we didn't really like each other. I wasn't ready for sure. I wanted to change everything about her and she resisted change at every turn. She communicated her needs passive aggressively. A burst pipe and a caved in ceiling. A septic back up. A roof replacement that took 3 months and $60,000 which ruined my chances of getting affordable insurance ever again.

The old ball and chain.

Steve Miller was right. Time keeps on slippin' into the future. Do you remember 30 years ago? I do. It seems like a world ago but at the same time it was my senior year in high school. That doesn't seem that far behind me. I still know the words to all the Tears for Fears tunes. I graduated early and was already at college before my class marched--I never have been one to stand on ceremony. I was pretty sure that it wouldn't be a milestone I'd miss. And I never have.

Many spend a great deal of time looking back but if you cut to 30 years from now? That's sobering. I will be 78. Seventy. Eight. And I don't know if you feel it too but time rushes faster the older we get. It's freaky. A friend of mine has recently relocated to Hawaii. Seemingly on a whim, but it took her 6 years and she says the timing has been perfect. The gist of that?  If there's anything you want to do? Do it. Get started. Now. Build the bridge. It's not going to happen in a hot minute. And you will lessen your frustrations if you just let it develop. But you have to commit. This is my theory anyway.
