Because it is never too early to start the Halloween celebrations!
Wickerd Farms is a really cute place to spend some time. There is a lot of Nature and stuff for kids to play around on. They have fun art and sculpture and Butterfly Gardens and Pumpkins and Nature Hikes and Christmas Trees growing in a lot.
Did not purchase any pumpkins yet - I have a feeling it is going to be a bit too warm to keep them comfortably just yet. But so much fun to visit!
So, I have always been interested in weather - and just finished a book on Weather Shamanism - but my results have been "meh." Mostly because I am new to working with, or wanting to work with the Weather Elementals - but recently I felt my heart open in a new way and yesterday was one amazing day of miracles that culminated with me asking the Weather for a bit of rain because we so needed it.
I have done this before but this felt different and yeah, wow.
I was working on my computer, the fan and AC blowing because the temps have been around 105 degrees all week. I heard this loud and odd noise but couldn't figure out what it was. I was looking out the window and the bright and clear blue skies when the noise came again and it sounded like sitting under a waterfall.
I ran out to the kitchen and it was bright and sunny and pouring rain. I literally ran straight outside and just stood looking up at the blue skies while being pummeled by rain. I was so happy and thankful and the plants and ground and myself just sucked up that moisture.
After a few minutes it stopped and I gave my thanks and went in to get dried off and I looked back through the patio door and saw a Thunderbird in the clouds. I grabbed my phone to take a picture and even though it was starting to pull apart by then I think it still looks like one.
I guess people could say it's easy to "see" anything you want - signs in the sky could be anything, but as a Shamanic Practitioner - seeing signs is important to understanding what Spirit wants to say to you.
For me, this was an invitation from The Thunderbird to work with it and I will gladly accept.

In Which Barley Poppet Turns One
Happy Birthday Barley Poppet 🍓🐈🐾❤🌞🎁❤
She's just over 9 pounds now. You can see by the fun comparison set of pix from now vs a year ago how big she has gotten. Today is all about her discovering catnip bacon that jiggles and catnip bubbles and a wand toy with feathers that she only gets to play with when she's supervised cause she is fast and eats things with no nutritional value 😝😊🎁
She loved her Eyeball Bacon toy and got very high before deciding to run around the house then nap. So now is the perfect time to clip her claws! *wishmeluck* Update - I got one claw. Not Paw, Claw. Sigh LOL

I have heard of this but just never looked into it until now. It is eerily spot on - well, as much as I can figure out on my own anyway.
I am just adding some info here so I have it, but if anyone comes by and has more information please share!
Projectors have an engaging and complex depth to their spirit. This type includes 20% of the population. Unlike Manifestors and Generators, Projectors must use their power wisely to live in alignment. Without careful use of their energy, they risk burnout in their daily lives -due to their lack of consistent inner-generated energy.
Characteristics of a Projector include feeling like they don’t have a calling and the desire to be recognized for their skill. However, Projectors have skills that are highly sought after by others, which makes them excellent leaders. When Projectors learn to wait for the invitation, they can invite fulfillment into their lives.
I guess my "Strategy," is "being invited. I need to learn more on that.
With their lack of consistent energy, this type must become a master at productivity and act as a guide for others to do the same. When Projectors wait for the invitation, they can provide the necessary guidance that fulfills both themselves and others.
So maybe instead of bashing my way forward looking to help, I wait for others to ask/need?
Projectors who fail to wait for the invitation often feel unappreciated or experience bitterness that can prevent them from living happily. Even more so, accepting the right invitations becomes a crucial skill that can transcend the Projector.
Success is the signature of Projectors, making them very special. So if you’re a Projector, find joy in your work, and you will find success.
Splenic (Huh, I would have thought I was more emotional LOL)
Splenic Inner Authority is frequently referred to as instinctual authority. Have you ever experienced a moment where you know if something is wrong? You may have Splenic Inner Authority.
Human Design types with this Inner Authority tend to be guided moment-by-moment, meaning that they live in the present and are acutely aware of their surroundings. They also receive authority by experiencing adrenal responses. If you have this Inner Authority, that may explain shaky palms, stomach-dropping or bursts of energy.
Spot on LOL
Definition - Triple Split?
Profile - 3/6 The Living Contrast
This one really confuses me right now but - the 3 is Martyr
Those with line three energy go the extra mile in whatever they do. They appreciate the eternal practice of learning and evolving.
The 6 is Role Model
Those with a sixth line live life in three distinctive phases. Each phase of life (~ every 30 years) brings new lessons and opportunities to teach those lessons to others.

No no, apparently this is places where I can choose who I have around - where I have control of the situation.
This is from Talking BodyGraph and from Projector Movement on how to read it.
- Aura: Focused and Absorbing
- Strategy: Wait for the Invitation
- Signature: Success
- Not-Self Theme: Bitterness
If the Sacral isn’t defined, and there isn’t a motor center connected to the throat, then you have yourself a Projector. Projectors have an absorbing and focused aura, which enables them to deeply know their environments as well as the people within those environments. 20% of the population are Projectors and they’re here to GUIDE, mainly the Generators, in how to best use their abundant energy.
The Projector’s strategy is to wait to be INVITED. It’s very important for Projectors to give themselves space and time to relax into themselves. This can look like a walk, reading a book, meditating, yoga, etc. This is because Projectors don’t have a consistent source of energy to keep going and going. This looks like a rhythm where you work, only when the right invitation comes, and then allow yourself to rest and relax in between invitations.
While you as a Projector are flowing and waiting for those invitations, there are three main things we recommend here:
We have already talked about rest. Due to Projectors having an open Sacral Center, Projectors don’t have a consistent source of energy, so that calls for rest and relaxation to nourish and support the energy.
Studying is important because Projectors are here to be masters of some system and to be a master you must study, so in between invitations it’s a good idea to study something you’re truly passionate about.
Play is in alignment with the Projector aura, the Projector sensitivity, and the Projector energy. If you’re a Projector and you’re reading these words, we invite you to write down things in your life that feel like PLAY to you and then increase that in your life. Trust us, this will change everything for you. It will align you to your purpose when you choose to play and feel joy.
The not-self theme for Projector is BITTERNESS. Do you want to know how to resolve that feeling? SUCCESS, which is the Projector’s signature theme. Projectors are designed to be successful, but many don’t feel that way because they’ve been conditioned to initiate (which is what Manifestors are here to do) and to work for extended periods of time (which is how Generators and Manifesting Generators are designed to live). Projectors are designed to live in a more feminine rhythm. When Projectors learn to slow down, to play more, to study their passions, then life will bring them the correct invitations for them which will lead to success.
Another thing to note if you are a Projector is that you are constantly absorbing the energies around you. This means it’s good to be careful about the environments and people you surround yourself with. Find people (family and friends) that nourish you, that support you, and choose in this moment to really nurture those connections.
Projectors, especially coming into 2027 and beyond, are here to become the natural managers and leaders of the world. As we’ve already said, Projectors do not carry a consistent source of energy in their own personal energy field, but instead, take in the energies of others and manage it.
3 / 6 Martyr / Role Model
Right Angle Cross of Service 17/18 and 58/52
The Right Angle Cross of Service
17 (Opinions)18 (Correction)58 (Aliveness)52 (Inaction)
Your Cross brings four logical energies together. The lead energy is opinion. With opinion energy, there is a great drive to correct and organize things so you can live a healthy, longer and more joyful life. You serve people through the logical energies of guidance, organization and correction. There maybe a drive to feel as if you are a healer, but it is important to understand that you are the guide and each person must take their own steps to truly heal.
I think I am going to need the book LOLOL BUT! That makes a lot of sense now because as a Projector, I have to master things, and I have always felt that way even when I was told I didn't need to. Huh.
So yesterday evening I heard a loud Crow squakkkk and glanced out the patio door and saw what looked like a dark butterfly take off from the Crow feeding area, make a loop around a tree and then land by some bushes.
My neck started tingling because it also sorta looked like a feather. My intuition got all RED ALERT so I went out to look and after a moment found that Crow feather on the ground.
It had started where I feed the Crows and where the first two feather gifts were but the wind blew it away. If Crow hadn't alerted me I might have missed it.
Best part!! Crow was actually on the patio roof! When I bent to pick up the feather it flew right over my head!!
Books Read June
So, yeah, I am still behind in my reading but I have other things going on I guess LOL
Total 3 and they are all re-reads
Life is Sweet - Elizabeth Bass
The All Girl Filling Stations Last Reunion - Fannie Flagg
Patty Jane's House of Curl - Lorna Landvik
I love it when I get to interact with the Crows. This morning I was at Riverside National Cemetery and this lovely flew to the Carillion to have a chat with me. Even posed a bit when I was trying to frame it in the leaves. The last picture I caught the second Crow next to the tree and a Hawk soaring above it.
Love being connected to Nature.
So, I got up early for me, 7 AM, because some gardening needed tending before it hit 101 degrees today. I was kneeling down moving some rocks and I saw this huge shadow on the wall. I looked up and Egret was staring right at me. I froze and I think my brain stopped functioning for a few seconds. Then I was trying to stage whisper to my Dad to LOOK AT THE WALL.
The Egret didn't seem fussed by us at all and just continued to sit and stare, then slowly walked along the wall to eat a bug or two. We watched this gorgeous bird for a few minutes and then it just took flight and left us dazed a bit. What an honor.
I was even more dazzled when I discovered one of Egret/Heron/Crane's attributes is a Psychopomp and stories of the Afterlife ! Huh!
Some other Egret symbolism:
It has been said to have Divine Connections - a direct link to God.
They originate in the place where the spirits of the dead go to the journey to the afterlife.
In the Bible it is associated with Christ's suffering because of the belief that this bird sheds tears.
It has a strong bond with all of the elements giving it diversity, balance and adaptation.
It teaches us to relax and BREATHE - helping us to restore inner calmness.
Egret medicine instills in us a sense of center to help us refine our senses and heighten our awareness.
Egret shows us how to be still and patient. To watch and wait with grace.
It brings much good luck.
What an amazing morning.
I have been leaving food and water out for the Crows every day for a few months now. I also leave food for the other yard animals as well but the Crows are my Power Animals and mean much to me. There is a couple, Loki and Toto, who live nearby and I have been slowly earning their trust.
I had hoped to see some sort of sign, I know they have been known to leave gifts to people who help them, but I also know that to ask for a feather, which I have been doing, can mess them up LOL I guess if a Crow sees you pick up a Crow feather, they might think you did something to one of them to get that feather?
Anyway, this morning I walked out and set out the peanuts and on top of the small cement Buddhist temple that I feed them on was a water soaked peanut - all the nuts I put out were gone but this one was dead center and drenched in water. Much like they like to eat them. I was tickled they left me one of their favorite snacks!
As I went back to give them cool and clean water, I froze in my tracks. On each side of the temple was one perfect feather. My heart soared and I was so gobsmacked my brain stopped working for a minute LOL
Crows come to me in dreams and give me messages all the time, but this is the first time they have given me one in person! Pure magic. Aho!
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
