Living in a Dream

Sometimes I just think too much

Archive for the tag “Zodiac”

Starting again….

I search for calm, sweet spirit. Taurus Dragon come! Patience and stability must be apart of my life. Teach me great Dragon I would be practical, organized. Show me the way emerald Dragon.

 

I’m going to need Taurus’ help quite a bit during my time with him. ~wry smile~ Lyo is going to put an application in for a new position that may cause us to move. I’m planning a trip to Yellowstone for next year (which I’m nervous if I’ll be able to pull that off). And I’m very very VERY nervous if I’ll be able to find a new job if we go.

Not to mention that remaining calm has never been a strong suit. Nor has being stubborn. I’m more than willing to compromise in tough situations…in fact most of the time I won’t even state an opinion about something unless asked directly. Being stubborn is something I do…undercover. ~amused~

So I guess…Taurus has much to help me with.

Lazy Day

“Inventiveness and insight deep, Bring to me while I sleep. Self-expression feeds the soul, Wise Dragon help me find a richer goal.”

It took me awhile but I finally got around to using a keyboard with my Thrive tablet. And I’ve got to say…I’m a silly girl for waiting for so long. ~wry grin~ Don’t ge me wrong the virtual keyboard is pretty good, but the amount of writing I do requires a keyboard. Which of course means I’m going to need another SD card sooner rather than later. ~laughs~

So another resolution or goal for this year is write/think about the Pagan holidays from my perspective. We all know that I take what I want and then spin it to my tastes. Hell, I think we all do that for one thing or another. And I never claimed to be that different. ~laughs~

So in any event…I’ll try to post something on the holidays that explains my POV and how I came about that particular thought/belief/theory. I can’t guarentee that it will be anything remotely coherent depending on the day…but I will try. ~smiles~

In the mean time….

my diet is working out pretty well. I’m with in 19 lbs of my goal weight (which I haven’t seen since….Jr Hight School…maybe). And the next bit is to find an excerise program that I might actually stick with. Not very likely as I’m kind of really bad about excerising with anyone looking so it could be a challenge to find the time. Unless it is a program that is not overyly excerise like. ~thinking~

I’ll figure it out…just a little time…..

Gentleness and Diplomacy

Social skils, artistic ways I need to brighten my days. Gentleness, diplomacy are necessary now to me. Libra Dragon gracious, good help me as you know you should.

Ahh, it is good to be back among the electronically living. 🙂  I’ll admit that not all my lack of activity has been due to being out in the wilderness, but I can blame a lot of it on that. The rest of it is has been just life getting in the way. But I’m back with new determination to at least attempt my daily writing again.

And today is all about Diplomacy and Gentleness. Two areas that I usually take to mean that I have to give up something to make a situation work. But that needs to change. Diplomacy isn’t about compromise though that may be part of it. Diplomacy is about respect and the beginning of understanding one another. It is about the willingness to talk and listen to other view points.

This is something I failed at this morning on my way to work. Another rider was trying to tell me that there was a reason for keeping some of the old paperwork I was finding at work, and like the stubborn person I can be at times 🙂  I was resistant to the idea. After all, what point is there in keeping something that can be easily recreated with a bit of work. Then a thought hit me…why put that work in when it is already done?

Yes, I do tend to be bullheaded when it comes to solutions like this and of course I’ve been arguing with myself ever since. Even though I know what I’ll end up doing. Which is taking that file out of the trash and storing it away with all the other old BS that has seemed to accumulate over the years. 🙂
See, I can bend. 🙂

Perhaps that isn’t diplomacy, but it kind of feels like the start of a lesson in it. And considering that today I’m working with someone whom I don’t always like…I’d say it is a good start.

On to Virgo

Good study habits, logical, and practical are all traits of this sign. Efficiency, neatness are good things to have. I desire these traits as you know. Help me Virgo to learn and grow.

I may struggle with parts of this sign. Well, maybe not ‘may’ I know I will. I am from the Controlled Chaos theory. It is an easy theory to learn and live by. To put it simply the theory states that unexpected things will happen. Some good and some not, but a person can apply order to those events by accepting them as they come and working with them instead of against them. My time with Virgo may challenge my notions and theory living, but considering that I have a new job I think it should.

I’m excited and terrified that I will do something stupid, but as long as I am willing to deal with those mistakes I should be fine. Being more organized will certainly help. As well thinking logically instead of on impulse. But I don’t think that I will change completely. Though for the sake of learning and growing I will try.

Walking through the Zodiac

I’ve decided that since I’ve been a little lax in my studies and life in general I would go back to this. A trip through the zodiac according to the signs and their times. Sounds a little like a year and a day type thing, but if I can keep up with it I will be better for it. Especially since I have never done this before. 🙂

So the goal is to make as many entries as I can, whenever I can, and use the meditations from Dancing with Dragons as a jumping off point. Lets see how this goes….

“Positive outlook I want in my life,
Warm thoughts and firm persistence,
I want to be generous, outgoing to all,
For these I need your assistance.”

I am not a very positive person nor is my persistence very firm. This could be harder than most things I’ve had to work on in the past, but I am willing to give it a shot. So how do I go about getting that positive outlook in life? The meditation is a great place to start, but I don’t think that I can leave it at that. Magick on its own is not going to change me…I need to put the effort into changing myself. And that is something I can do. I’ve done it in the past.

Everyone has to one degree or another. Moving on after someone dies is one form of changing, but perhaps the most common is daily changes that most people don’t notice right away. It becomes habit to alter oneself in subtle ways I would guess. So for me, changing from a neutral/negative outlook on my day is going to take some practice. I would choose to start this at the beginning of the work week. 🙂

No, really it is a good thing. If I am to change then I need to begin rather than putting it off for another day.
