Waxing Crescent Moon


Money is tight.  Prices are rising.  Hours are being cut at my job.  Times are tough.

Yes, I am doing all the necessary mundane things one does in these situations, but as I started writing this update I realized I was in the Hour and Day of Mars, associated among other things with Jobs requiring energy and with overcoming obstacles, and being an Aries whose sign is ruled over by Mars; it felt like a good time to sit down and do a little rough draft work on a sigil and come back to this update later?  I found a few good resources, here and here and some ideas on prosperity work here and here. I also checked a few of the books in my library, and did a rough draft of a sigil, and identified elements and styles for the crafting of it that called to me in my moment of fear and need. I also wrote out a few rough notes that I will return to tomorrow.

I am wrestling with a lot of fear and worry over finances.

I feel like I am stumbling somewhere through the Two’s of the Tarot deck, getting smacked around by the Two of Swords and difficult choices while I struggle to get myself more towards the easy and balanced juggling of the Two of Pentacles.  I’d love to write in more detail about the personal background of my current state of financial worry and woe, but for the moment I am not able to.  So, I thank you for putting up with my vague posting!

(Has anyone done a filk of Madonna’s song Vogue about vague-posting yet, cause that should really be a thing?)

What I can comment on is that it occurs to me how one of the juggling acts I am dealing with is the same one a lot of spiritual and religious folks go through, which is juggling the mystical and spiritual with the practical and mundane.  It is all too easy to look to one thing to solve all our problems or to want this-one-thing to be the answer.  To look for easy answers and simple solutions when the Truth is so often found in wrestling with the complexities of life.

“Bit by bit, wrung by wrung, until the work is done…”

I will find myself muttering as I complete one piece of the seemingly ten-thousand things that need doing around the house, and in different parts of my life, to get myself to where I want to be for myself and my family.  Both a note-to-self, that sometimes change happens in small but important increments.  Also, a sort of charm to seal my intent to keep whatever I am working on in mind and seal the results as either a step towards the new normal, or simply the way things need to be or be kept going forward.

I had the day off from work today and spent most of it asleep as I had worked a couple of overnight shifts on the 30th and 31st, I will be going to bed soon as I need to get several things accomplished tomorrow and have a 7am shift the day after.  Although even as I write this the day has passed into the next, but it never seems like it’s actually tomorrow until I have had some sleep!

So for now, I will wish you all a good night and, as always,

Bliss and Blessed Be, Pax / Geoffrey
