I was just now thinking about new ways to replace some of my unneeded and outdated thoughts, habits and actions with newer, more healthy ones. After pondering this lightly, I decided to check out some fun spiritually-minded web pages I enjoy frequenting. I went to Rob Brezsny's Free Will Astrology page. He has valuable Astrological Life perspectives and paints inspiring portraits for each Sun Sign to ponder. Check it out HERE!

This is what I read : 

Verticle Oracle cardVirgo (August 23-September 22)
Thirty-two carrier pigeons were awarded medals by the United Kingdom for their meritorious service in the World Wars. Of course, they probably would have preferred sunflower seeds and peanuts as their prize. Let that lesson guide you as you bestow blessings on the people and animals that have done so much for you, Virgo. Give them goodies they would actually love to receive, not meaningless gold stars or abstract accolades. It's time to honor and reward your supporters with practical actions that suit them well.

Do you want further explorations of the intriguing twists and turns of your personal evolution? Would you like help in solving the riddles that confuse you?

Alice finds her way to Wonderland by falling down a rabbit hole. Dorothy rides to Oz on a tornado. In C. S. Lewis'sThe Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Lucy stumbles into the magical land of Narnia via a portal in the back of a large clothes cabinet.

In the sequels to all these adventures, however, the heroines must find different ways to access their exotic dreamlands. Alice slips through a mirror next time. Dorothy uses a Magic Belt. Lucy leaps into a painting of a schooner that becomes real.

Take heed of these precedents. The next time a threshold opens into an alternative reality you've enjoyed in the past, it may not resemble the doorways you've used before.
The preceding oracle comes from my book, PRONOIA Is the Antidote for Paranoia: How the Whole World Is Conspiring to Shower You with Blessings

Alice in Wonderland is one of my all-time favorite stories. It is the book which lent to my philosophical inclinations as a child which only grew as I did. 

I knew that things were definitely not always as they appeared and enjoyed daydreaming about other ways of being, living, relating and on and on. I created a protective imaginary world with which to view my stranger-than-fiction life from. I went there to be safe, to not be judged, to play freely and explore other sides of what was harsh and negative to deal with. 

What Alice gave me was a home. This home had walls I could walk through, mythical creatures I cavorted with and was a real home. I was the royalty there. I called the shots, unlike little Alice in the book. I was not a victim of absurdities, but a mere participant in creating them, acting an observer or invisible to everyone else if something felt off.

I had power by just existing.

So after reading the above forecast, I found the questions Brezsny posed resonated with me more than the actual horoscope. 

I am evolving personally. 

In the process of said evolution, it can be challenging or downright impossible {or as in Alice, downright Impassible, because nothing is impossible in Wonderland} to know the tastes of the fruits of the evolutionary process before the fruit ripens.

Patience is key. 

Trusting in the process of life is a huge undertaking, yet so simple.

I find it much easier to be both patient and trusting when I take a step off the pedestal I put myself on and then take one step backward. 

Perhaps it is a good time to read Alice again, or Sartre. 
I know that every new experience is an adventure, great or minute. 
All are valid.

INTENT like the photo above reads- is the Divine message!


  1. Alice was my favourite book as a child. I actually read it again a couple of weeks ago.

  2. PS took your follower virginity :)

  3. I have ALICE in storage at the moment... perhaps this is my opportunity to purchase yet another volume illustrated by someone new... and thanks for following. I was preaching to an invisible crowd here!
