Nicoletta Ceccoli Tarot
I love the art on this deck but I absolutely can not read with it. So, it has sat and gathered dust which made me very sad until I had the idea to pick the cards I most resonate with and create an oracle deck with it instead.
I found 35 I loved and added 5 more for an even 40 cards. I chopped off the boarders/numbers, which almost made it a mini-deck. Then I rounded the corners and edged the cards in a deep burgundy red. That was almost a mistake LOLOL There was more color bleed than I would have liked and I managed to leak red on one of the card faces but it almost fits. I may use some soft sand paper to give it a "Dirty Pam," type feel later.
Overall, I am very happy with it. And now I can use the deck more often because I made up the stories that go with it. The stories are in my head right now, but I plan on getting a small notebook to put them in eventually. I may not though, as I think with this deck, the stories will unfold differently each time and that creates a magic all its own.

I can feel myself tensing up already LOL But the funny thing is I am actually not cutting her nails tomorrow - I am taking her to the vet to have her glands expressed and the claws done while she's there. I am pretty sure I have PTSD just from getting her into her travel bag and having to listen to her yowl the entire 20 minute drive to the vet.
Usually, USUALLY, I can at least get the tips of her claws - enough that she isn't sticking to the carpet anyway. But lately, she has been full on Exorcist when we try to do this. I have watched ten billion videos and each time I say, "how drugged up is that cat?"
Because man, my cat is like the opposite of those cats. Right now, the best way to even attempt her nails is to put her on the table, cover her with a towel, and pull out each limb and try to snip the tips off before she pulls it back in, or flinches, making it impossible to get it.
The contraptions available for this endeavor are hilarious and make me think that my cat is not unusual in the "hating the nails trimmed," department. But then I try to figure out HOW to get her into said contraptions without suffering severe claw and bite marks.
I guess the hanging bag would work if one could stuff her into it and then keep her from flailing her limbs about. But I about died laughing when I saw the Kitty Hannibal Lecter masks/deep sea diving balls.
I think what I need is about five more people to hold her down because my Barley is a mini-tornado on nail cutting days. I need to ask the vet how they do it and how many people it takes. HAHA
Dia de los Muertos
So, I had set up my altar earlier and was about to take a photo when I jokingly told my brother, Tommy, to smile for the camera.
Photo One is how the altar has looked for awhile.
Photo Two is what happened when I told him to smile.
I miss you Tommy. Family pranks and jokes just aren't the same. I'll see you on the other side.
For all my Ancestors who have crossed I honor you and thank you for keeping the light on for me.

IT - Stephen King (re-read many and many times)
I did much better in
A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness I always try to re-read around the time frame of the books and Harkness has a great mini-book that shows all the places/locations of the books)
The Stroke of Winter - Wendy Webb (another great one by Wendy!)
I Choose Darkness - Jenny Lawson (an essay on some spooky vibes ala Jenny)
The Keepers of Metsan Valo - Wendy Webb (I rather like her books LOL)

Parting the Veil - Paulette Kennedy (LOVED THIS BOOK)
Shadow of Night - Deborah Harkness
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!!
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
