Incy Wincy Spider – or Spider Woman

Little Miss Starwise stood by the train

Waiting for transport which soon came

There winched down beside her

a little black spider

which made Little Miss try to hide her

This is a little ditty that I wrote on Thursday 19 August 2015.  You may be able to tell the Story behind it.

I was waiting on the train platform to catch the train to work, when to my surprise, a beautiful small black spider winched her way down beside me on my right.  It was almost as though she ( why say “he” all the time ) was saying hello to me personally.  The thing is she landed on the concrete, much to my alarm, as there were many Homo sapiens species ( people ) standing restlessly around.  I tried sending a message telepathically to the spider, an image of being stepped on, which I imagined happening to me & it was not at all a pleasant thought.  She could have been Charlotte.

To my greater alarm, the train arrived, so I quickly moved protectively closer to her, to shelter her from giant feet.  Luckily, this little spider had her wits about her, and sensing vibrations on the ground, etc. she promptly began winching her way back along her beautiful thread, which was invisible to me, but must have still been anchoring her to her anchor point.  I was relieved until the girl standing a few centimeters from the spider on the other side to where I was standing, lumbered forward and I thought her crooked elbow or lurching steps may propel her into my spider friend.

Geckos and Elephants

Elephant_and_Lizard_adornments1

Well, here are pictures of my new acquisitions, being a beautiful sparkly silver Elephant key-chain and a gold-tone Lizard / Gecko eye-glass holder pin ( 1 3/4 inches in length)  !! I bought the Ellie key chain, which I’ve attached to my handbag, from my local news-agency for $10.  It has no maker’s mark on it at all, but I really love it and it is blingy and a good size, at 2 inches from the tip of her trunk to the tip of her tail, and just over 1 inch from top to bottom. It is good quality and heavy-ish too.

I was rather pleased to come across the gorgeous gold Gecko brooch, as I call her, because over the past 2 weeks my partner and I have been rescuing baby Geckos, as I’ll explain in a moment.

First I am going to say that although the Gecko cost me $19.95, I thought when I saw her, that it was another “sign” that I am on the right path at this stage of my Life.

2013 – Year of the Black Snake Chinese New Year & Astrology

Chinese Zodiac Chart

2013 is the Chinese Year of the Black Snake or the Year of the Water Snake.

The theme for this year is to make headway in a slow and methodical way.

Chinese New Year in 2013 begins on February 10th.  The Chinese Lunar New Year is celebrated at the second new moon after the winter solstice. The winter solstice, which falls around December 21, is one of two times of the year when the sun is at its greatest distance from the equator. It is also the shortest day of the year.  Lunar New Year’s Eve is celebrated with family gatherings and festivals.  Cities in China celebrate the 15-day New Year season with firecrackers and fireworks.

This 2013 year of the Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline will be necessary for you to achieve what you set out to create.

Visits from a Chameleon & other Animals !

Panther Chameleon

Furcifer pardalis

Update about the Photo below – it appears widely on the internet and please note that I never  said it was real and I never lied, and never said the Greeks named it but  that the lion reference was associated with the Greeks.  Apologies to Frank whom we received a Comment from and posted below the photo, and have obviously angered.  Please note everyone, just because I have my own viewpoints on my connections with animals doesn’t mean I am out of touch with reality or am a nut-case.  Look toward yourself first if you want to find fault.

beautiful chameleon

A Comment from a disgruntled reader

( when readers are unhappy they are sure to let you know)

From your July 2012 post. The second picture ‘beautiful chameleon’ is a juvenile Chamaeleo calyptratus, commonly called a veiled chameleon. The coloration is absurdly altered and does not exist in nature. Why would you alter the natural beauty of this being? It is out of touch w/ natural beauty and reality, as I suspect you are. You do the world a dis-service when you lie to make a point. The world is a wonderful and beautiful place w/o having to lie. By the way, it was English speaking scientist using Greek names that called the Chameleon the ‘Lion on the Ground’, not the Greeks themselves. Frank

Did you know that the name of these special lizards is translated as “the lion on the ground” as it seems that Greeks deemed something of a lion in them.  By looking in the dictionary you will see that this word is associated not only with this wonderful lizard but also with humans and their sometimes inconstant behavior.   Last night as I was dropping off to sleep, I could see a very clear and large image of a green and spotted Chameleon, just like the photo of the panther chameleon above.   This image was so bright and clear and unexpected, that I knew it must be a visit from the Chameleon spirit, bestowing the “medicine” or wisdom of the Chameleon upon me.   Linsdomain   says the following about the Chameleon as a totem.
