The White Swan*

Have a great night of sleep from ten o’clock last night till quarter to seven this morning.

Do my Astro Tarot Challenge post:

Then go for a walk with Mum to Frogmore Lakes. Five of the six cygnets ๐Ÿฆข have grown up, look:

We see the blasted tree:

It is warm and sunny. My Aunty visits and we have a drink in the garden:

Fluffball comes to sit with us:

Have a quick lunch and meditate and sleep as Persia Lawson the Love Coach is talking at the Self Love Summit Digital Weekender at 3.15pm.

Mel Wells and Persia are great. The festival goes on till nine o’clock this evening so am just quickly scribbling this.

Chemo tomorrow. Let’s hope it’s not as vomit-inducing ๐Ÿคฎ as last time. Still: at least it’s on a Monday which allows me several days to become ill if I’m going to before the weekend.

I’m doing my Self Love Summit Digital Weekender in bed.

Happy Sunday everyone!

An Arson, A Wig And A Murder*

Sleep from ten o’clock till six thirty this morning and feel refreshed.

My chemo wigs are here from Amazon:

So, I am prepared. I’m not going to do what I did last time: allow my hair to come out in clumps. This time: as soon as hair starts falling out I will make an appointment at the hairdresser ๐Ÿ’‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ to have it all shaved off.

I was so Terrified of losing my hair last time. Once I saw it on The Cutting Room’s floor, I realised that hair is something I don’t need. Wigs are fine. I just purchased three twenty pound ๐Ÿ’ท ones on Amazon. They’re acrylic and once they start knotting and become unmanageable, I’ll just buy new ones.

Today I have Pilates at quarter past nine. Then brunch and early sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด as the Self Love Summit Digital Weekender starts at two o’clock and I don’t want to miss any of it. I think Mel is speaking first and I have my Zoom link to join in.

It’s seven minutes past seven. Am going to see if I can find Fluffball.

Happy Saturday everyone!

The Kabbalistic Murder Code*

Wake up at 6.30am and start watching Novak’s match from last night. Then it’s Roberto Bautista Agut vs Nick Kyrgios and Roberto plays amazingly to win in straight sets.

Rafa drops the first set to Alex Di Minaur and then I have to go to the Mel Wells Intuitive Eaters Academy party. Wear my Vivienne Westwood gold dress.

Meet some lovely Goddesses at the party ๐Ÿฅณ and meet Mel for the first time. You can see us in the above photo.

Whilst I’m out Rafa wins his match and Feli and Pablo win the Doubles. So it’s a Big Day tomorrow: Rafa vs Novak at 8.50am in the Final!

Am just watching the Doubles now. I love Feli ๐Ÿ˜.

Miss my sleep this afternoon so will have an early night as need to be up by 7.30am tomorrow to see Roberto Bautista Agut play Dusan Lajoviฤ‡. Vamos Team Spain!

Pull the Page of Wands today from my Ciro Marchetti Gilded Tarot deck. The Page Of Wands is about trying something new and my printed materials for my Kabbalah Diploma have just arrived. Can’t wait to get stuck in to them: Kabbalah is very important for Tarot so am excited.

Happy Saturday everyone!

Total Recall*

Stay at my cousins last night. We start watching Total Recall at about 10.20pm. At 10.30pm I go to bed. So still have never seen it.

Wake up this morning and have some porridge. My little cousin has a dreidel that is pink and when you spin it, it lights up and the light changes to different colours.

Pull The Fool from my Trippin’ Waite Tarot Deck. He stands for new beginnings and so is appropriate for the New Year.

Pull cards for my cousins too: the King Of Cups and Strength.

Uber home is very quick and then meditate and sleep. Unpack my suitcase. Need to put the washing away.

This month’s Goddess Collective module is Intuitive Exercise so I watch Mel’s video.

Finish watching You and start The Witcher.

Happy New Year ๐Ÿฅณ everyone!

*1990. Feature film. Stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone. Based on a short story by Philip K Dick We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. Directed by Paul Verhoeven.

Moonology*

Wake up and start reading Moonology. It’s brilliant. It tells the reader how to use the different phases of the moon ๐ŸŒ’ to set intentions and so on. It’s this month’s set book for my Mel Wells Goddess Collective.

Do my Tarot Challenge and pull the Queen ๐Ÿ‘‘ of Wands from my Silver Witchcraft Tarot deck. She is a very powerful Queen and in Rider-Waite-Smith she has a black cat at her feet for feminine mystique. My Silver Witchcraft deck lives in my Nemesis Now black cat box and I don’t use it as much as I’d like.

Do Pilates for an hour at the gym. Then watch Vikings. Brother takes me back to the parentals where I meditate and sleep and now am watching Vikings again.

Our next door neighbours are coming for dinner so must post this.

Happy Friday everyone!

*2016. By Yasmin Boland. Self help book.

The Prow Beast*

Wake up at six o’clock this morning and watch Vikings for a bit. Then prepare for my first professional face-to-face Tarot Reading.

Catch the train ๐Ÿšž to the parentals from my station ๐Ÿš‰ in the pouring rain.

My querent arrives and the reading goes well. Have to look up a couple of things in The Tarot Bible but pull a Celtic Cross for her and am able to do a pretty good job. She is really pleased with my card explanations.

Here is the reading:

Fluffball has been sleeping behind the sofa ever since I arrived. It is warm and comfortable for him there.

Today’s Advent Challenge is to donate to those less fortunate so will visit Pets At Home and buy some dog and cat food to put in the collection box there which is picked up by the RSPCA. Not all pets have a safe and warm home this Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ ๐Ÿ˜ข.

Meditate and sleep this afternoon.

Right it’s suppertime must post this.

The Knight Of The Swords*

Go for a walk in the sunshine ๐ŸŒž. It’s cold but the sky is blue.

Today’s Advent Challenge is meditation and I do a Walking Meditation: listening to the birdsong; feeling the wind in my hair; gazing at the bare trees.

Have lunch and do my Body Scan meditation and sleep.

Wake up and do Module 6 of the Mel Wells Intuitive Eaters Academy and Module 3 of the Persia Lawson Get Your Soulmate programme. Write up my work and post it in the Facebook groups.

Do my Tarot Challenge and pull the Knight of Swords ๐Ÿ—ก:

Swords โš”๏ธ stand for the element of Air. The Knight of Swords ๐Ÿ—ก. Notice the movement in this card: in Tarot, Knights are messengers. Notice the swallow above the horse, the sword ๐Ÿ—ก in the air and the crow flying in the direction of the horse. It’s a depiction of great energy.

The Knight of Swords ๐Ÿ—ก brings a youthful enthusiastic energy to a job, which brings with it the inspiration to create a pathway to success.

Drawing this card today means that soon I will need to concentrate on making more changes to my Memoir and mustn’t rush them as I want it to be the best book it can be.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Moving On*

Wake up at about 6.30am and it’s pitch black outside. When I speak to Mum at seven it’s still dark. It doesn’t get light till about 7.30am. Welcome to December in England.

It’s Day 2 of the Mel Wells Self Love Advent Challenge and today’s task is to buy a plant. So purchase this little cyclamen who is nestling between my bromeliads.

Do some weights at home. Tiny skateboard ๐Ÿ›น has arrived but need to ask brother’s trainer for the exercises to do on it.

Listen to Leonard’s new album. It’s cold today: was zero degrees when I went out this morning.

Looking forward to seeing Dolly tomorrow and cuddling her. Love that giant girl.

Happy Monday everyone!

*2019. Song by Leonard Cohen from Thanks For The Dance.

Dancing In The Dark*

Wake up at seven o’clock and set off for the gym at quarter to nine.

See my brother’s trainer there. The owner of the gym is pleased to see me. Here I am:

Here is another gym client:

My abs hurt from training yesterday which I realise when I lie down on the gym floor to do some reverse curls.

Walk home.

Go with brother to pick up some felafel for lunch. The man in the shop shapes the balls, very quickly, using an ice cream scoop.

My brother’s friends visit for lunch. Finally, I can wear my Hayley Menzies Leopardess ๐Ÿ† playsuit:

Module 4 of the Mel Wells Intuitive Eaters Academy and some more of my Get Your Soulmate work.

Have a sleep.

Have started reading Book Four of the Knaussgard series. My Norwegian friend Lars appears in this book as a character named Nils Erik. He shared a house with Knaussgard when they were younger. Am not up to him yet.

Unload the dishwasher with brother and put my clothes away which Mum has just washed.

We are going out for dinner with one of my brother’s colleagues tonight.

Happy Monday everyone!
