A hike and a Fortune.

October 3rd, 2011 by KellyJoe

Holy crap, I have a problem with procrastination. At least I’m doing this in the same day i said I would, even though its been hours since I originally meant to. Anyway, we’ve been on two hikes at the Nebo loop though I’m only going to post pictures of the second one since its got the better pictures. Enjoy.

I always seem to take pictures of her making funny faces and it makes me laugh. =)

So anyway, that was our hike and while it rocked yesterday I am so stupid sore and tired today. Apparently the dogs feel the same way as me since they’ve been sleeping all day and Lacy’s tired enough she was snoring as loud as a person. Its seriously terrible cause I’m not even understanding anything I am watching right now. Does anyone remember that movie Legend from the 80’s? Totally has Tom Cruise being weird and somewhat creepy. Yeah, I’m watching that and I have noooo idea whats happening at all-and I’ve even seen it before. So far all I’m getting is that when you go kinda evil you get a very funny looking painted on widows peak and some baaaad hair. However, Tim Curry is brilliant. I wish I could bottle his voice.

Wow. Odd off topic rant. Moving on.

So today I realized it had been a looong time since I had read my fortune and I thought it would be kind of fun to share it on here since it has to do with Al. (For those of you who don’t know, before we knew I was pregnant every time I did a reading or someone did a reading for me I always drew cards that related back to being fertile. Its really weird to think back on that now.)

My question was how the birth would go. This is what it came out as-

The first card I drew was the Otter (middle card). It relates so my self in this position and this is what it has to say-
*The Otter invites us to play, to “go with the flow” of life and experience-to become a child again. Allow yourself the pleasure of relaxing and letting go of all your daily concerns. The Otter could be prompting you to take a weekend out of your usual routine- to do something purely for fun. Your practical self may tell you that you can’t afford the time, but deep down you know you need to take care of yourself to be of real value to others. Someone may even be coming into your life who will show you how to play again-something you may have forgotten as you accepted the responsibilities of giving up. The Otter shows us that being playful can even lead us to catch the Salmon-the fish prized by the Druids as the totem of wisdom. Drawing this card also confirms in us the sense that we are truly protected.

The second was the Crane (to the right of the Otter) and it relates to my intellectual-
*The Crane brings the qualities of of patience and perseverance. The Crane will stand for hours peering into the water until the time is right for it dart at its prey. Combined with the ability to be patient, the Crane conveys the capacity to be focused and be able to concentrate without distraction.

The third was the Bull (under the Otter) which relates to my sensual-
*The Bull mediates the influence of Taranis, the Jupiter-like God of the Druids, whose beneficence and expansiveness can bring you the opportunity for a rich and abundant life. The bull is a symbol of wealth and as such it is auspicious to draw this card when considering financial matters. But remember that the ancient ones were wise enough to understand that true wealth is to be found in the heart and soul first, and only then in the material world. The Bull represents fertility, potency, abundance, and prosperity, but these things can sometimes take a while to achieve. If you need to work steadfastly in trying circumstances for a considerable period of time in order to achieve your goals, the bull will help you to do this without becoming drained or depressed.

The fourth was the Earth Dragon (drawn reversed and to the left of the Otter) and relates to my emotional-
*This may be indicating that somehow you are relating in an inappropriate way to your inner reserves and potential. A precipitous attempt to capitalize on your talents or express your potential may be unwise. (I’d write the rest but none of it makes sense and is more confusing than anything. It doesn’t relate either so meh).

The fifth and final is the Horse (drawn reverse, above the Otter) and relates to my intuitive-
*This card may be asking us to look at the roots of our restlessness. If we have difficulty settling down, staying in one place or completing tasks, it may be that we have not fully accepted the flow of the life-cycle and our part within it. Attuning to the spirit of the horse may help us connect with our sense of place in the world-with the spirit of the land beneath us and the sky above us.

Soooo.. I think the first one starts with a pretty clear answer but it gets a little more difficult to pick out an answer after that. I asked a friends I knew about it and she told me that birth is a little tricky since most readings will only tell you that you’re going to have a child and not how easy it will be doing that. I take from the first card that he will come out fine and the second is telling me to be patient. The third is a really good sign since I would consider Al to be wealth and thats what the card is saying I’d get. The fourth doesn’t make a lot of sense and I don’t get it :/. The fifth.. I think is telling me that I need to just relax and look at what I’m basing my fears off of and just sort of accept whats going to come for what is going to come. All in all, I found it to be interesting and worth sharing. (For copyright things this is from the Druid Animal Oracle and theres a pretty good chance that I suck at interpreting it.)

The pictures I got from my last ultrasound did not come out great so I’m going to wait and see if I get some at the end of the month when I visit my doctor again before posting more. I think this monster of a post has gone on long enough, so I’m gonna catch the end of this crackpot movie. Once again I didn’t read over what I typed so if there are any grammar errors DEAL WITH IT.
