With my chart  ruler Uranus, Pluto, and the north node in the Seventh house, Venus in the 1oth and my Moon opposing Venus, one would conclude finding balance is a priority for me. While I do not see myself as primarily Venusian in temperament, I find relationships both compelling and challenging. This would also apply to the inter-relationships between the various areas of my life.

I drew the 2 of Pentacles from the Goddess Tarot Deck for both the Cancer new moon and the recent Capricorn full moon. I find this repetition to be significant.

Here’s the meaning associated with this card:

TWO OF PENTACLES The woman juggles two pentacles. Completely focused upon her act, she does not drop the pentacles.  Meanings: The ability to juggle several situations at once. Jobs, opportunities. Grace and bounty. Commerce and expansion.

I definitely relate to the juggling of work and personal life, adherence to dietary restrictions and urge for indulgences, saving and spending newfound income, fatigue and creative expression….

It is reassuring that the card is suggesting that I can keep all the balls in the air without dropping them. Grace and bounty, why, of course! Who isn’t enamored with both of these gifts? I really hope I can continue along this course. There are many adjustments in my life that are necessary for my healing and well-being.

I have begun implementing my new wellness plan and it is not easy. I am amping up the organic foodstuffs,  leafy greens, legumes, and whole grains, and decreasing red meat, pasta, bread, and processed foods. Hello to kale – laden salads and good-bye to hoagies!

I am enjoying the lighter foods in this hot and humid season, but wonder about how I will fare in the winter. I realize it is wise to just focus on today. I am also adding vitamins and medicinal tea to the mix. My nutritionist is great, but it is hard for me to hand control over to her. But I believe I was guided to her for this purpose, so I will trust in the process.



I am also juggling my mixed emotions about getting a new cat. I have blogged about this before and had concluded I am in no hurry. But the signs are getting louder and louder. I subscribe now to both the Sunday Philadelphia Inquirer and the Sunday New York Times. I equate the Times with sophistication and intellectual discourse. It feeds my curiosity and expands my worldview. Very 9th house ~ It rocks!

Yesterday I received the early section for both papers. The cover of Parade Magazine features Christopher Walken holding a cat for the film Nine Lives. The NY Times Arts and Leisure section features an article on the Return of Cats the Musical. So we have Nine Lives of Cats and the Return of Cats just in one day! This is in addition to the Dexter encounter last week. Plus the release of Zootopia and The Secret Life of Pets. Now I realize that the sun just entered Leo, but there certainly seems to be an abundance of feline presence everywhere I look.

I did visit the SPCA again on Sunday, but left empty-handed. I was not feeling the selection, except for a few kittens already labeled as adopted. This is all very confusing. My solution is to devote more time to meditation and journaling so that I can slow my mind and gain more clarity. pub domain

I still miss Dexter so very much, but realize that he has moved on or is waiting to return to me via a new incarnation. In the meantime, I have plenty to keep myself occupied. I am taking my computer tomorrow for the Windows upgrade so I will be less available for a few days. But my heart will remain connected with all my readers and fellow bloggers.

I definitely plan to immerse myself in the Democratic Convention coverage  held in my beloved Philadelphia this week. If you have a chance, please tune in if only to get a glance of my beautiful city.

peace and avocados,

    Hi Linda,

    This post had a real nice feeling to it, like one of those mists rising off the water when the sun is catching up to the day. I’m glad you are turning over new leafs(!) and looking to the arrival of the new, even as all that has been is blessed. When I think of the big picture, and how quickly what we wish to hold onto is transformed, it becomes increasingly obvious that acceptance of a grace-filled path is essential. Wishing you well-being and a lovely remainder to your week! And a safe computer upgrade!

      Hi Michael,

      Thank you for that great imagery, beautiful…
      Life is new and exciting, and scary and daunting, all and none, together!

      Windows 10 is fine, not much different, but a bit more seamless.

      Thanks for the encouragement of my new state of being.

      peace, Linda

  6. Hi Lindadear!

    Beautiful post. Still absorbing the energy of peace and balance in it. Aren’t we always balancing as an artful process? It’s a responsive, receptive process. How well illustrated here in your divination here.

    Aloha, Ka

      Aloha sweetie,

      Bless you , you get it. Title was a play on the artful dodger from the book Oliver, and a nod to the art of living with consciousness.

      love to you,

    Sounds like good things going on. Good wishes on your health and healthy diet!
    I love the picture of the lady and the cat.
    May you find your new cat in perfect timing, be it Dexter or another soul waiting to come in.
    Peace to you Linda,

      Thank you Mary for your support and appreciation. The painting is a Renoir. I am feeling French lately 🙂

  8. Congratulations on the big shifts you’re making, Linda. May they bring a new cycle of wellness and wellbeing to you. And when there’s a loving ‘opening’ in a Feline Tribe home, I’m sure the cosmic tumblers are moving to connect you and this beloved feline. Love, Jamie

    Hello how are you litebeing 🙂 I’ve been a lacto ovo vegetarian for some time now. Haven’t missed meat at all. So hope you will find your new eating habits will bring you peace and joy. I’ve been drawn to having a new kitty. Pooh Cat (after Pooh Bear of course) died the month before Don, I grieve for her now because I was grieving so heavily for Don then. My only block is my convoluted thinking process, I’m getting older and I don’t want to die or be incapacitated and have to give up Baron AND/OR a kitty. Everyday on some of the posts I see on animal rescue sites on Facebook I read about older people having to give up their furry companions because the human is sick or going to a nursing home. For me it’s a lot to think about, a lot to decide. I believe I’ve told you before that I’m a Cancerian and I’m also an introvert with hugh negativity challenges. So looking into the eyes of a beautiful black kitty who wants/needs a home and saying no is quite difficult. Enough about me…have a peaceful day litebeing 🙂

      Hi Theanne,
      It is always a pleasure to hear from you. There is no correct diet or choice regarding adopting a pet. It is always about discernment and heart opening. I am doing the best I can and am beginning to see that perhaps we all are as well.

        I have a friend in Arizona who “opened her heart” to dogs…the last time I knew she had apx. 14. She ❤ and took care of them all ! I quite understand how some people become animal hoarders, it's so difficult to say "no" when you look into the eyes of a creature who is looking back into your very soul.

    So many cats coming up . While reading your post, I received a message on my ipad that my daughter had just sent me a pocture via Skype. I checked to see what it was. A cat picture! A little cat holding hands as if praying. It is from a vocabulary trainer app for French. The cat says the German translation for the French word for “please”. So cute.
