The Adder

King of Wands

At this time of year adders represent serpentine Earth energies rising from the ground into the air and intertwining, as male adders struggle for dominance. (Sometimes this is mistaken for a mating ritual.)

They also represent magical power balance and the healing arts.

Raw and potent sexuality. Earth or healing energies expressed and recharged. A healer. A rebalancing and re-empowering of one’s physical and subtle energy and creativity.

N is for No one is guaranteed tomorrow

Today I’m wearing one of my favourite t-shirts for casual Friday. “Dance as if no one was watching. Sing as if no one was listening. And live each day as if it were your last. Irish Proverb”

For some reason this shirt gets weird horrified looks on the bus but it is the truth. No one knows when they are going to pass the veil. And unless you know you have a terminal disease you can’t even guess when your last minute will come. So isn’t the best thing to do to live each day as if there were no do overs? That means having no regrets about when we should have been kinder. Be kind all the time. Have no regrets about telling someone you love them. Tell them often so that there is no doubt.

If there is some adventure you want to take, some book you mean to read. Some story you need to write down, do them!

You don’t know until it’s too late what you “should” have done. Live without “should”. Greet the Sun every morning and if there is no sun, greet the clouds and rain. Feel the wind instead of rolling the window up because it might muss your hair. Pet your kitty, hug your family and friends. Greet the green of the trees, Welcome the birds. Watch the ants on the sidewalk. Be present, BE HERE NOW!

It’s never too late to be the person you dream of being. Be it!

Give thanks for the time you have been given.

Don’t waste time with people who are negative and nasty.

I know we as pagans generally believe in reincarnation so we do get a “do over” in a sense but it won’t be the same as this life you are in now. Be responsible for who you are and make who you are the best you can be.

Greet the day and the people you see with a smile, it makes people wonder what you know that they don’t.

As we used to sing in Girl Scouts:

Life is for living

Love is for giving

And joy is for passing around

Make friends with each other

And love one another

And let’s let the music abound

Life is too short to waste it on gloom

Don’t let your love slip away so soon.

So join hands with each other
And love one another
And let’s celebrate ths good day.

So life is for living

Love is for giving

And joy is for passing around
