Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

3.23.15 Seeing

wow!  I definitely need a new stove. I turned on a burner to boil some pasta and fire and sparks came out. The oven went out on it last fall and now down to 3 burners. I have been looking for one anyway but now I'll move it up the list. At least I can cook outside without freezing now  :)

Supper will be a mix of homemade and commercial organic pastas in parmesan white sauce with our garlic, cracked pepper, our onion and my own herb mix. Salad with my homemade Dill Dressing. Breadsticks I made the other day with herbed butter. Iced Irish Back tea to drink.

For evening tea I'm having plain scones with a mix of raspberries and blackberries frozen from last year. Plain old tea with commercial creamer.

Today was spectacular! I wandered around just being for at least half an hour. Then I got back to work  :)  Painted some chairs, made a blue hammock, worked on Juju Dolls, worked on inventory, did some garden planning, prepared an area of floor to paint, regular chores, curried Anya, took several breaks, worked on the front sitting area and outdoor kitchen, made breakfast, 2nd breakfast, lunch and working on supper.

I was given an old wooden table base last fall and am going to be doing something with it. Maybe. It's quite wonderful just as it is. But I'll need to do something to it to keep it from deteriorating further.

I'm so blessed  :)

and now......

Some folk say being a Seer is a gift, some folk say it’s a curse. In my experience it is always both but, this year, so far, mostly a gift.

This is a special and bright year. Not that every year or month or day or hour or minute is not special. Each second is special and sacred. But this year is different. Different in many ways.

It’s a singular time for a second chance.

If you’ve been considering changing the name of your business, group, clan, tribe… changing your own name, given or chosen, this is the year for it. It’s about restarting, recharging, renewing, redoing, renaming, reinventing

It will be especially bright in many ways and is for seeing things better, seeing them anew, in a brighter light etc… a time to reexamine, rethink, reconsider, reorganize

Regrow, replant, revive ….

It’s hard to put it all into words but it's clear and on a broad spectrum, and “re” seems attached to all of it.

The only real caveat I see, aside from what will come after, is that whatever is redone this year will stay that way for quite some time to come. As in, it will be difficult, if not impossible, to alter these things again for a long time. I know that part sounds vague and mysterious but that’s all there is on it.

I don’t usually share what I see publicly but this is meant for everyone.

Thanks for sharing your vision, Jewel. This year, for me, is about re-building a life that was derailed many years ago, renewing long neglected ties to the earth, and re-affirming my connection to the All, and rejoicing in my connection to the Web.
