The Moon


Featured image: Three Moons

The moon is a feminine symbol, universally representing the rhythm of time as it embodies the cycle. The phases of the moon symbolize immortality and eternity, enlightenment or the dark- side of Nature herself. It might reflect inner knowledge, or the phases of man's condition on earth, since it controls the tides, the rains, the waters, and the seasons. It is the middle ground between the light of the sun and the darkness of night, and thus often represents the realm between the conscious and the unconscious. In astrology, the moon is a symbol of the soul, and in the horoscope it determines the subject's capacity for reflection and adaptation. It also provides analogy for the stages of human development: the new moon is infancy, the crescent is youth and adolescence, the full moon is maturity and pregnancy, and the waning moon represents the decline of life, sleep.

  2. To see a robin flying can indicate a symbol of renewal, passion and new beginnings. They also represent patience and wisdom. The stork symbolizes rebirth or new life. It is thought to represent new physical or spiritual beginnings.

  3. The red color of the cardinal has been associated with the living blood of Christ. Cardinals have been seen as a symbol of vitality. In the Christian context, the blood of Christ is the heart of its message and the vitality is everlasting.

  4. Cardinal birds are a symbolic bird as it symbolizes positivity amidst the troubles we experience in our life. There is a quote about this belief that goes, “Cardinals appear when angels are near.” Because of this, many have been associated with cardinal sightings on their property to their departed loved ones.

The red bird may be giving you a message that you should accept the flaws in yourself and love yourself exactly as God made you. A cardinal appearing in your dream can also mean that something unusual will happen in your life or that positive life changes are in your future.

Does a Rock Have a Smell?


Featured image: Rocks Along the Ogami Shore

Does a rock have a smell?

Perhaps moss, earth; but really for the most part rocks, that is a rock all by itself – just washed, doesn’t have a smell.  Well, that is my take anyway.  The lack of smell in a rock illuminates smell in so many other things surrounding it.  For example the rocks in my garden, and their lack of smell don’t distract me from the wonderful smells of my flowers in the garden. 

Smell and no smell need each other. They  are opposites. Life is the same way.  Opposites need each other, difference is extremely important, for it illuminates our otherness, like rocks and flowers.  

Celebrate otherness.  Celebrate life.
