Wisdom in Tealeaves

A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.

Tib Bits:

I brew a pretty good cup of tea and will read the tea leaves for you.

Remember that Pluto rules nuclear power.

The explosive passion of Pluto has the rich, dark red wine color of the bloodstone.



Bloodstone has two rulers:  Mars and Pluto.  And I’ve given it the assignment of Scorpio.  The reasons are below.  This is a Pluto ruled gemstone.  Mars, the first ruler of Scorpio (and later, Pluto was given ruler ship over this zodiac sign)  rules the red blood cells of the body, so this is a perfect fit. Given Bloodstone’s vaunted energy and vitality it gives to the wearer, only Mars will do here.  Our ‘engine’, which is our daily physical energy, depends upon Mars in our natal chart.  With the “drops” of red blood on the dark green gemstone, Mars is the only one that can be selected.

But on a deeper, Plutonian level, this gemstone is about our DNA; our heritage from a family long past that we didn’t even know.  And our family DNA is with us whether we realize it or not.  For those who look at our family tree, the information can be monumental and important.  Why? Because we can look at our past family members and see patterns of behavior and perspective setting up.

What they were, we may be.  And to borrow from a history saying, “What we forget we are doomed to repeat.”  Well, it’s the same in the family structure too. We all have a miasm; its simply a matter of knowing what it is. Then, we have a CHOICE to make.

We can either choose to carry it forward into our present day family–or NOT.  And it is here that Bloodstone can play an integral part in helping us define what we are and whether we want to carry on that genetic/family heritage.

Bloodstone helps us DISCRIMINATE between good family genes and weak ones that hold us in a destructive pattern.  That is why Bloodstone works on two levels simultaneously. Mars works on the physical level and Pluto on the family heritage level.

It will assist you to become more peaceful and serene.


These gemstones connect with our deeper core values of this personality in this lifetime BUT, they also connect with our SOUL who has far more strength built up in it as a result of hundreds of thousands of lifetimes.  This is the phenomenal magic of Strength gemstones.  They are able to ACCESS this vault of built-upon and earned spiritual strength so it can help us get through some present difficulty/test/initiation that we’re putting ourselves through in this lifetime at this moment.

It ‘feeds’ us so that we don’t give up, despair or want to check out because the life lesson is “too hard” to deal with.   Not all people are strong spiritually speaking.  We have baby spirits to ancient spirits in human body on this Earth.  No one is created equal.  And we’re all working on collecting that very necessary soul strength so that we can take on tougher and tougher challenges–and work through them successfully instead of failing them.

Being grounded is essential for living down here on our Earth.  One of the most interesting facts about Bloodstone is that it is highly sensitive to heat.  That means, if you wear it, you are ‘exciting’ the energy of this gemstone and it’s going to start sending out its energy into your aura quite rapidly.

Today, it is seen as the Mother Goddess stone

Just a few of my Haiku’s

Flying squirrel leaps
tastes hummingbirds nectar sweet
wood barks ground weeps sky watches

Natures mist implodes
footprints buried
skylight remains infinite

Lily-pad so pure
water serene
where’s the frog?

  1. The haiku is a Japanese verse in three lines. Line one has 5 syllables, line 2 has 7 syllables and line three has 5 syllables. Haiku is a mood poem and it doesn’t use any metaphors or similes. Usually when Haiku is taught the students are only given the restriction of the number of lines and syllables.

I am fairly laid back. Cool, mostly calm and a collectible

What are You waiting For


I just re-glued the hanging Ladybug that Polly gave me years ago. That bug has broken his legs and arms too many times, he has scars.



My Note I received from the Universe 6th of August:


Lots of synchronicity going on in the Universe


Your thoughts become things every single day, no matter what the occasion, no matter where the  energy vortices, no matter when the equinox starts,  no matter what the economy is doing, no matter who is in office, no matter what you want, no matter when you want it, no matter what, no matter what, no matter what.

Any other thinking just gives your power away.

Love you by leaps and bounds,
The Universe

What they remind me of, Phoenix, is that we are truly here to thrive. It’s our default setting, our true “normal.”  Life, at these primitive times, is mostly about getting out of our own way.

Letting the currents of abundance, love, and friendships lift us higher, with the divine buoyancy that even now spins the cells in our bodies – in your body.

Have You Ever Tried to Fix Someone



“Fix You”

When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
I will try to fix you
High up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
I will try to fix you
Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Sometimes I wonder if person’s really are listening…if they were they would HEAR what I was trying to say, not what they perceived me too say.

“Sometimes there is no next time, no time-outs, no second chances. Sometimes it’s now or never.”

~Alan Bennett

Sometimes it’s just makes more sense to LET GO of toxic persons that DULL your shine. Resentments take up that prized space in your soul.

Move On

There I Grow Again
“Don’t let anyone rent space in your head for free. That space is prime real estate.”

Source Unknown

The original of this was said by Esther Lederer:

“Hanging onto resentment is letting someone you despise live rent-free in your head.”

Ann Landers’ quote (Esther Lederer was her real name) is a good reminder about the ways in which, through resentment, we give space in our minds to people we have conflicts with. Although of course it’s not really them we’re renting space to.

I wrote this when I was in Prose Mode.

Shadows dancing in the sunlit prisms
Palm fronds swaying in a summer breeze
Investigating the maze of paths
Contemplating a dream of epic proportions
When everything is as peaceful and content as the spiders weaving there webs
Undisturbed, not perturbed
waiting on the morning dew

Growing Never Gets Old

Be courageous enough to grow into the flower you are meant to be.

When the Love dies…funny how persons that meant so much too me for so long don’t even phase me.

Right now I am having amnesia and déjà vu at the same time…. and I think I have forgotten this before.
